Melvin Franklin, assistant to the Secretary of Indian Affairs, revealed Thursday that it has cost the government $3 million to keep Wounded Knee under guard. The dnlj( way to pay the cost Franklin said, would be from the Bureau of Indian Affairs budget or by a special appropriation of Congress.

Kissinger. The White .House had announced on Wednesday that Kissinger and Tho, the principal negotiators of the Paris peace agreement on Vietnam, would meet in Paris during May tp find ways to insure strict adherence to the cease­ fire. Asked about the possibility of such a meeting, Nguyen Co Thach, North Vietnam's vice- minister for Foreign Affairs, told newsmen: "For the time being, there is no question of anything like that." TTiach made his remarks during a break in the fir^t day of preliminary, talks With Deputy Assistant Secretary of State William L. Sullivan on the issue of cease-fire violations. Thach said it was too early to predict if his talks with the Americans would be successful "It's too early to give an assessment... we have barely had time-to sit down and start talking." Peace delegation sources said further meetings were expected between the two sides. The 10 a.m. meeting of Hanoi-Washington diplomats at a French Communist villa in suburban Gif-Sur-Yvette had hardly begun before North Vietnam cast doubts Kissinger^Tho talks. Th« ilorth Vietnamese Embassy siH it had no information on lOdi fl meeting. "This information waft dis* tributed uniiatetelly bjlt the United States," the eiflfeissy said.

SAIGON (UPI) - North Vietnam and the Viet Cong are still holdiiifli about 26,000 South Vietnamese military prisoners in at least 189 prisoner of war camps scattered across three countries, a high-ranking Saigon officer said today. Brig. Gen. Phan Hoa Hiep, deputy chief delegate for South Vietnam to the two-party Joint Military Commission, made the charge at the first news conference ever held by Saigon's JMC delegation. The news conference was held as the scheduled exchange of 1,387 South Vietnamese and Viet Cong civilian prisoners was delayed in'-a spat between truce supervisor^ and Viet Cong officers, the two sides have only one day to go to meet the 90^ay deadline for; the freeing of all civilian prisoners. Hiep was asked by Lt. Gen. Pham Qouc Thusfn, South Vietnam's chief delegate to the JMC, to respond to a question about the number of prisoner of war camps in North Vietnam. He displayed a map showing the alleged location of Cohimu- nist POW camps in. South Vietnam, North Vietnam and Cambodia. Hiep said the 189 camps, which each hold from 200 to 500 prisoners, did not include those in which civilian prisoners were held. He did not elaborate. Hiep said, "We know that of every five war prisoners, one has died in captivity and all have been stricken by beri beri or by skin diseases." Hiep said South Vietnam has evidence that more than 60 South Vietnamese officers are still being held in North Vietnam, including the Commander of a paratroop brigade captured in Laos early in,1971.
