Before Trip To Midwest Ford Signs Commodity Futures Exchange Bill WASHINGTON (AP) -- Pres- ,ldenl Ford Is venturing into America's breadbasket alter! signing legislation ot intense interest to fanners that expands government regulation o f . the $500 billion-a-year commodities futures exchanges. Aides said Ford planned to issue a statement today at DCS Moines, Iowa, on the bill he signed into law six hours before the Wednesday midnight deadline. The Iowa capital was the first stop in another day -of campaigning for Republican candidates in Ford's effort to avoid what he calls "a veto proof Congress." From DCS Moines he was heading for Mclvin, 111., and a fairgrounds celebration honoring retiring House GOP Whip Les Arencls. After that, he scheduled appearances at two receptions and a Republican fund-raising dinner in Chicago. Tile legislation signed by Ford Wednesday night estab lishcs an independent agency topped by a five-member com mission to oversee trading o! futures contracts. It also bring: under regulation contracts tha are exempt from various laws but still are subject to the rules of the largely self-governing ex changes. In commodity future trading farmers and other producer sell goods for delivery ot somi future date at a guarantee! price which they think will gi- lem a fair return. Processors, exporters and ther middlemen make the fu- ires purchases, agreeing to rices on such commodities as oybeans, silver, corn, cattle, heat, sugar and coffee. Spccu- ators also participate in the market. The commodities themselves eldom change hands, except n paper. But rather, they lire x c h a n g e d i n t h e inter- onnccted cash market, where jrices reflect futures trading. Thus, the futures market af- ects retail costs at two points -- first, in determining initial cost to the middlemen, and second, in working on the cash market to help set the starting price for products that even ually reach the supermarket. Today's Midwestern tour came atler the White House announced more campaign up- jearances which a spokesman said will wrap up the Presi dent's pre-election schedule. The spokesman said that next week Ford will go to his home town of Grand Rapids. Mich, on Tuesday, then fly to Los An gelcs on Oct. 31 to attend : GOP fund-raising event and spend the night. On Nov. 1, he will .speak in Fresno, Calif, and Portland, Ore., spending, the night in Portland. Ford returns to VVashingtor Nov. 2, with campaign appear ances that day in Salt I.akr City, Grand Junction, Colo, and Wichita, Kan. ELECT VERD EUGENE PARKER TREASURER Washington County Republican Candidate 24 Years in Data Processing and Business Management. Owner-Director of Fayefteville Business College (Pol. Ad Paid for By Verd Parker) Groups Dispute Attorney's Statement LITTLE ROCK A P ) -- Rep- escnlulives of low-income and enior citizens organizations isputcd Wednesday a slate- lent by a Washington, D.C., aywcr that passage of the pro loscd constitutitional Amend nent 57 would help the poor. They called the statement by Hilton Schober, the Washington awycr brought to Arkansas by lie Arkansas Credit Require mcnls Committee, deceptive. Tho representatives said ap irpval of the measure would lave "tragic consequences on ow-income persons and senior citizens." The proposed amendment ivould allow the state legisla- .ure to set ceilings on Interest, ·ales above the current 10 per cent constitutionally imposed limit in Arkansas. The representatives said they .bought they were more familiar with poverty than Sehober. They said tlie argument Ihat raising interest rales would help the low-and fixed-income persons is "absurd since mak ing high monthly payments and paying greater finance charges would take more money from Ihe pockets of Ihe poor."
