Gold Supply
For Market
Jolinson Removes
25 Per Cent Cover
Backing Currency
From Wire Service Reports
WASHINGTON - The White
House announced yesterday that
President Johnson has signed
legislation releasing this country's
entire stock of gold to back the
dollar in foreign exchange.
The bill, which Johnson signed
Monday night, removes the 25
per cent gold cover requirement
for the nation's currency.
This frees about $10.7 billion
in gold which the Treasury had
been required to hold under a 55-
year-old law that said every $1
federal- reserve note must be
backed by 25 cents in golds
Measure Passed in Crisis
The bill squeaked through Con-
gress last week at a time when
international speculation in gold
had reduced the U.S. stock to
$11.2 billion, or only about $500
million more than the cover re-
quirement.
Despite urgent calls for passage
by Johnson, the Treasury and the
Federal Reserve, the House passed
the bill by the close margin of
199 to 190, and the Senate vote
was 39 to 37.
Yesterday's daily Treasury
statement disclosed that last
Thursday, the day the Senate
completed congressional action on
the bill, there was a further
decline of more than $200 million
in the U.S. gold stock,
This brought total U.S. holdings
down to $11.2 billion, compared
with $11.9 billion on March 6 and
$13.36 billion last November when
Britain devalued the pound.
Gold Price Declines
Meanwhile, the price of gold
dropped on European markets for
the second consecutive day yester-
day as the steadying effect of the
actions of the United States and
Britian were felt.
Removal of the gold cover gives
the Treasury considerably more
room for maneuvering in defend-
ing the dollar's value abroad, but
it means nothing to the average
citizen.
Americans could not exchange
their paper money for gold be-
fore the new law was signed, and
they still can't.
Domestic users of gold, such
as jewelers, dentists and electron-
ics firms, will have to turn to
foreign markets for most of their
needs as a result of emergency
measures taken last weekend.
