French officials declined to disclose the French proposals or to comment on reports the Communist-led Vietminh wanted all of North Indochina, except Hanoi and the port of Haiphong.

Flanders (R-Vt), whose motion to oust McCarthy as chairman of the Senate investigations subcommitee and the parent government Operations Committee is before the Senate. The motion can be called up without being approved by a committee. In an interview. Cooper said of Flanders' motion: "The issue had to be raised. It is whether the Senate will take steps to correct an abuse of the investigatory power by a committee member. That is also an abuse of the Senate itself." Speaking of the investigations subcommittee's televised inquiry into the dispute between McCarthy and top Army officials, Cooper said: "It is my view that any conclusion reached by the subcommittee will neither settle this issue nor make this decision. I think the Senate has the facts. It is its own responsibility." HOT SPRINGS. Ark.
