By EDMOND LeBRETON Associated Press Writer ..i WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. citizens will be able legally to buy, sell and hold gold as of Dec. 31 for the first time since 1934. President Ford signed legislation on Wednesday lifting the ban imposed during the worldwide depression of the 1930s, when the United States went off the monetary gold standard. The action meant victory in a long campaign waged principally by conservative members of Congress, representatives from mining states and citizens who see the metal as a desirable hedge against inflation and the gyrating values of stocks and other investments. Some economists argue that gold yields no interest and usually costs money to store and insure. How and where will Americans be able to buy the precious metal? Minutes after the signing was announced, Samuel Weiss & Co., a member of the New York Stock Exchange, said it had begun taking orders for gold from the public and other exchange members. Weiss was the first memberjirm to be authorized by the^jjEhange,,,^ a bullion agent arid the company said it had made arrangmenets with a minerals concern to sell gold bars in sizes ranging from V4 troy, ounce to 50 ounces. A spokesman at Weiss said the firm's bullion prices would be tied to the rapidly fluctuating gold prices quoted In world markets and would include the firm's own commission of 6 or 7 per cent. The closing price in London on Wednesday was 1157.50 an ounce. You won't have to go to the stock exchange to buy gold, however. Commercial gold dealers, commodities exchanges and coin dealers began making plans for the legalization of gold even before the legislation passed Congress. A spokesman for Handy and Barman, a New York gold dealer which until now sold only to jewelry manufacturers and other industrial users, said earlier this year his firm would market gold in sizes from half an ounce up. He said people probably would be able to send for the gold through the mail or purchase it like any other item. * The spokesman tsaid the gold) would be 24 caraiP-99.95 per. cent pure gold—and probably would be advertised much like silver. John Flynn of Perera Fifth Avenue Inc., which deals in currency and foreign exchange, said his company was making plans to buy gold from refiners, have it made into the shape of ingots and sell it in sizes from one to 100 ounces. The commodities exchanges readied contracts for gold futures. Mark J. Powers, senior vice president of the International Monetary Market of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, said the contracts probably would be traded in amounts of 100 ounces, Legal gold trading could begin earlier than Dec. 31. The President has authority under existing law to permit it if he finds that such transactions would not disrupt the U.S. international monetary position. There has been no indication, however, that such a finding is in the offing. Bishop talks about UA goal WASHINGTON (AP) - Dr. Charles E. Bishop, the newly appointed president of the University of Arkansas, said here Wednesday night that the primary goal of the UA should be to develop challenging and innovative instructional programs that will be unexcelled. Bishop made the remarks at a meeting of the Arkansas State Society and the Washington U of A Alumni Club. He was introduced by Sen. J. W. Fulbright, D-Ark., a fornjer UA president. Bishop noted that a smaller percentage of Arkansas high school graduates go to college compared with youth in other states. He said this illustrated the need to keep higher education within the financial reach of youth in Arkansas. He also said that was the reason he was firmly committed to the low tuition principle. Bishop said the development of the VA system should not come at the expense of the Fa- HEBER SPRINGS, ARk.

"Let me assure you that the role of the Fayetteville campus will not be a diminishing one as the rest of the system develops," he said. "U will continue to be the system's multipurpose campus, which provides extensive programs of teaching, research and public service." The role of the UA-LitUe Rock campus is to provide degree programs of a general m* ture and programs oriented specifically to the needs of the urban area of Central AT? Kansas, Bishop said. The UA president said that for the forseeaple future, UALR will concentrate on being a commuter institution. But he said it had a great potential in adult education, continuing education and off-campus programs. Bishop said the needs of the Pine Bluff campus are of "substantial magnitude," but he said he was encouraged by the institution's potential. Bishop also said he was pleased with the appointment of Dr. Herman B. Smith as UAPB chancellor. Bishop replaces David W. Mullins who retired this spring.
