LXX1V, NO. 25 AttotuteA (AT) ABILENE, TEXAS, MONDAY EVENING, JULY 12. PAGES IN TWO SECTIONS PRICE DAILY 5c, SUNDAY IOC Byrnes Asks Indochina Showdown BOLTON LANDING, N.Y. tfl Gov. James F. Byrnes of South Carolina today advocated the re- turn of American representatives to the Geneva conference for an Allied showdown on Indochina. Byrnes, former secretary of state, who is here attending the 46th annual Governors Conference, said in an interview he does not believe the United Slates can af- ford to stand aloof and thus risk being blamed before the world for failure to reach a settlement with the Communists.

The speech will be broadcast by radio at 8 p.m., EST. ABC sched- uled a broadcast, and NBC arid: CBS scheduled recordings at to 10 P.m.', EST.

However, Gov. Dan Thornton, Colorado Republican, said in a pre- pared welcoming speech that the :ime has come for Americans to forget politics in dealing with the Communist international threat. Thornton is chairman of the con- rence. "In the final he said, "this is a battle of ideas between Americans and those who would destroy us not a battle between Democrats and Republicans.
