Byrnes, whose break with Mr. Truman has never been publicly explained, has hinted that'he might be a candidate for governor of South Caiolina. Byrnes' speech to the Southern Governors' Conference was credited In part for the adoption yesterday by that group of a resolution opposing government regulation of individuals and calling for restoration of slate sovereignty. The governors also elected Gov. J. Strom Thurmond of South Carolina, who headed the stnfes rij;hls , ticket in last year's presidential election, as the new head of their group.
