Thomas Iv Dcwey of Now York criticized as an anti-U. N. resolution marked the only flarcup of the slate executives' annual get-together. The five-day meeting ended yesterday. Oov. Dan Thornton. Colorado Republican and a sinunch supporter of President Eisenhower, was elected conference chairman. Hr> succeeds Gov. Allan Shivers, Texas Democrat.

The governors' conference, for the first time in years, came away without adopting resolutions urging statehood for Alaska or Hawaii. The Republican administration opposes immediate statehood for Alaska, which generally votes Democratic, and Democratic members of the resolutions committee refused to act on Hav/Rll only.
