    PRESIDENT SUKARNO, IN A FURTHER BID TO RESTORE CALM AND ORDER IN INDONESIA, SUMMONED HIS MILITARY COMMANDERS AND CIVILIAN PROVINCIAL LEADERS ON SATURDAY (OCTOBER 23) TO A CONFERENCE TO BRIEF THE LEADERS FROM ALL PARTS OF THE REPUBLIC ON THE ATTEMPTED COUP.

    THE PRESIDENT ADDRESSED THE SPECIAL CONFERENCE AND CALLED FOR AN END TO RACIALISM, SLANDER AND VENGEANCE. PRESIDENT SUKARNO WARNED THAT SPLITS CREATED BY THE COUP ATTEMPT ENDANGERED INDONESIAN "ECONOMICALLY, POLITICALLY, SOCIALLY, MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY."
    HIS REFERENCE TO RACIALISM AND VENGEANCE WAS TAKEN AS AN ATTEMPT TO TONE DOWN THE ARMY'S PURGE OF COMMUNISTS AND ITS INVESTIGATION INTO THE ACTIVITIES OF CHINESE IN THE COMMUNITY.

    PEKING HAS CHARGED THE INDONESIAN GOVERNMENT WITH ANTI-CHINESE ACTIVITIES WHILE THE ARMY HAS INFERRED THAT COMMUNIST CHINA WAS BEHIND THE PKI (COMMUNIST PARTY OF INDONESIA) IN THE ATTEMPTED COUP.

    SUKARNO REPEATED HIS DEMAND THAT DEMONSTRATIONS AND BURNING OF COMMUNIST PROPERTY BE STOPPED, TELLING THE CONFERENCE THAT ONCE HIS DIRECTIVE HAD BEEN CARRIED FULLY IN THE LOCAL PRESS, HE WOULD ORDER THE ARMY TO SHOOT ANY VIOLATORS OF THE DEMONSTRATION BAN.

    APART FROM THE PROVINCIAL LEADERS AND REGIONAL MILITARY COMMANDERS, THE CONFERENCE WAS ATTENDED BY THE CABINET PRESIDIUM (DOCTOR SUBANDRIO, LEIMANA AND CHIRUL SALEH), THE COMMANDERS OF THE FOUR ARMED SERVICES AND SELECTED MINISTERS.
