FOREIGN FUNDS CONTROL
To Each Bank and Trust Company
in the Second Federal Reserve District:

We are in receipt of the following telegram dated August 18, 1941, from
E. H. Foley, Jr., Acting Secretary of the Treasury:
A completely efficient administration of Executive Order 8389, as amended, in every
section of the nation is of the greatest importance to the economic and financial side of
national defense. The fifteen thousand banks of this country are a vital link in the
success of foreign funds control. Most American banks have kept themselves fully informed
of every step taken under the Executive Order and have cooperated expertly with the
Treasury and the Federal Keserve Banks.
Foreign funds control significantly affects the country's welfare. It places important
responsibilities on every bank throughout the nation, no matter how small and no matter
how few of its clients are foreign nationals or have financial transactions with foreign
nationals. I believe that each bank should designate a senior officer to be in charge of
foreign funds control problems affecting the bank, and to keep himself fully informed of
all developments in this field. Kindly ask every bank in your district to furnish you with
the name of its officer so designated by the bank.
The banks can also perform a real service by keeping their customers fully informed
with respect to foreign funds control.
For the convenience of the banks and public generally, the Treasury has just issued in
the form of a pamphlet a revised compilation of documents relating to foreign funds control
and I would appreciate your sending a copy of this document to every bank in your district.

Enclosed is a copy of the pamphlet referred to by the Acting Secretary of the
Treasury and also a copy of an article reprinted from the August issue of BANKING
containing answers of Treasury officials to a number of important questions on foreign
funds control. Additional copies of these documents will be furnished upon request.
This bank will of course continue to mail to you all documents relating to
foreign funds control as they are published by the Treasury Department from time
to time and will also continue giadly to answer any inquiries you may have on this
subject.
This bank would appreciate being advised promptly of the name of the officer
designated by you to be in charge of foreign funds control problems.

President.

AUTHORIZING A PROCLAIMED LIST OF CERTAIN BLOCKED NATIONALS AND
CONTROLLING CERTAIN EXPORTS
BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
A PROCLAMATION

I, FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT, President of the United States of America, acting under and by virtue of
the authority vested in me by Section 5(b) of the Act of October 6, 1917 (40 Stat. 415) as amended and Section 6 of
the Act of July 2, 1940 (54 Stat. 714) as amended and by virtue of all other authority vested in me, and by virtue of
the existence of a period of unlimited national emergency and finding that this Proclamation is necessary in the interest of national defense, do hereby order and proclaim the following:
Section 1. The Secretary of State, acting in conjunction, with the Secretary of the Treasury, the Attorney General, the Secretary of Commerce, the Administrator of Export Control, and the Coordinator of Commercial and
Cultural Relations Between the American Republics, shall from time to time cause to be prepared an appropriate list of—
(a) certain persons deemed to be, or to have been acting or purporting to act, directly or indirectly, for tlna
benefit of, or under the direction of, or under the jurisdiction of, or on behalf of, or in collaboration with Germany
or Italy or a national thereof; and
(b) certain persons to whom, or on whose behalf, or for whose account, the exportation directly or indirectly
of any article or material exported from the United States, is deemed to be detrimental to the interest of national
defense.
In similar manner and in the interest of national defense, additions to and deletions from such list shall be made
from time to time. Such list and any additions thereto or deletions therefrom shall be filed pursuant to the provisions
of the Federal Register Act and such list shall be known as "The Proclaimed List of Certain Blocked Nationals".
Section 2. Any person so long as his name appears in such list, shall, for the purpose of Section 5(b) of the Act
of October 6, 1917, as amended, and for the purpose of this Proclamation, be deemed to be a national of a foreign country, and shall be treated for all purposes under Executive Order No. 8389, as amended, as though he were a national of
Germany or Italy. All the terms and provisions of Executive Order No. 8389, as amended, shall be applicable to any
such person so long as his name appears in such list, and to any property in which any such person has or has had an
interest, to the same extent that such terms and provisions are applicable to nationals of Germany or Italy, and to
property in which nationals of Germany or Italy have or have had an interest.
Section 3. The exportation from the United States directly or indirectly to, or on behalf of, or for the account of
any person so long as his name appears on such list of any article or material the exportation of which is prohibited or
curtailed by any proclamation heretofore or hereafter issued under the authority of Section 6 of the Act of July 2, 1940,
as amended, or of any other military equipment or munitions, or component parts thereof, or machinery, tools, or
material, or supplies necessary for the manufacture, servicing, or operation thereof, is hereby prohibited under
Section 6 of the Act of July 2, 1940, as amended, except (1) when authorized in each case by a license as provided
for in Proclamation No. 2413 of July 2, 1940, or in Proclamation No. 2465 of March 4, 1941, as the case may be, and
(2) when the Administrator of Export Control under my direction has determined that such prohibition of exportation
would work an unusual hardship on American interests.

Section 4. The term "person" as used herein means an individual, partnership, association, corporation or other
~^-organization.
The term "United States" as used herein means the United States and any place subject to the jurisdiction thereof,
including the Philippine Islands, the Canal Zone, and the District of Columbia and any other territory, dependency or
possession of the United States.
Section 5. Nothing herein contained shall be deemed in any manner to limit or restrict the provisions of the said
Executive Order No. 8389, as amended, or the authority vested thereby in the Secretary of the Treasury and the
Attorney General. So far as the said Executive Order No. 8389, as amended, is concerned, "The Proclaimed List of
Certain Blocked Nationals", authorized by this Proclamation, is merely a list of certain persons with respect to whom
and with respect to whose property interests the public is specifically put on notice that the provisions of such Executive Order are applicable; and the fact that any person is not named in such list shall in no wise be deemed to mean that
such person is not a national of a foreign country designated in such order, within the meaning thereof, or to affect in
any manner the application of such order to such person or to the property interests of such person.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States of America
to be affixed.

TO COLLECTORS OF CUSTOMS AND OTHERS CONCERNED:

TREASURY DEPARTMENT
July 22, 1941

The following regulations are hereby prescribed to give effect to the President's proclamation of July 17,
1941, authorizing the publication of "The Proclaimed List of Certain Blocked Nationals" and the list promulgated pursuant to that proclamation:
(1) In respect of all merchandise intended for exportation after July 27, 1941, there shall be submitted
with each export declaration, a list or statement showing the name and address of each ultimate
consignee of the merchandise, unless such names and addresses are set forth in the appropriate
export declaration. If the ultimate consignee, consignor, shipper or other person having an interest
in the merchandise or in the transaction is named in "The Proclaimed List of Certain Blocked
Nationals", the exportation shall not be permitted except upon presentation of a license issued
pursuant to Executive Order No. 8389, as amended, or instructions from the Treasury Department
authorizing the transaction.
(2) With respect to importations from any American republic of merchandise in which any person
named in the proclaimed list appears to have an interest as consignor, seller, shipper or otherwise,
the acceptance of entries for consumption and withdrawals from warehouse for consumption in
respect of such merchandise tendered after July 27, 1941, shall be withheld pending presentation
of a license issued pursuant to Executive Order No. 8389, as amended, or instructions from the
Treasury Department authorizing the transaction.
(3) Licenses cancelled by actual exportation, entry or withdrawal shall be endorsed to that effect and
forwarded to the appropriate Federal Reserve Bank.
(4) These regulations do not affect in any way the necessity for a license under the Export Control Act
of July 2, 1940. Neither an export control license nor a license under Executive Order No. 8389, as
amended, will be accepted in lieu of the other type of license.
(5) Nothing in paragraphs (1) and (2) above shall be deemed to excuse any person from the necessity
of obtaining a license in accordance with Executive Order No. 8389, as amended, and the proclamation of July 17, 1941, covering importations from or exportations to any person whose name appears
on "The Proclaimed List of Certain Blocked Nationals".

REGULATIONS ISSUED PURSUANT THERETO, RELATING TO TRANSACTIONS
IN FOREIGN EXCHANGE, ETC.
TERM "DENMARK" NOT APPLICABLE TO ICELAND

General Ruling No. 1
The Secretary of State has advised me as follows:
"Denmark and Iceland are two separate political entities. Acting under the authority of a
provision of the Icelandic Constitution the Icelandic Parliament has within the past few days
passed a resolution stating that since the King of Iceland is not now in a position to carry
out his Constitutional duties with respect to Iceland, the Icelandic Government has assumed
for the time being the exercise of the Royal prerogatives and the entire control of Icelandic
foreign relations.
"In view of the foregoing it would not appear that Iceland falls within the definition of
the term 'Denmark' in Section 11 of the above-mentioned Executive Order."
In view of the foregoing, the Treasury Department construes the term "Denmark" as used
in the above-mentioned Executive Order and Regulations as not applying to Iceland.
[Issued April 15, 1940.]
TRANSFER OF STOCK CERTIFICATES AND CUSTODY OF SECURITIES
General Ruling No. 2
Inquiry has been made as to whether the following are prohibited by the Executive Order and

(b) The delivery out of custody accounts or the receipt in custody accounts, by a banking
institution within the United States, of securities held or to be held in custody for "nationals" of
Norway or Denmark.
The Treasury Department construes the Executive Order and Regulations as prohibiting such
transactions, except under license.
[Issued April 19, 1940.]
TRANSACTIONS REGARDING SECURITIES REGISTERED OR INSCRIBED
IN NAME OF A DESIGNATED FOREIGN COUNTRY OR NATIONAL THEREOF
General Ruling No. 3 as Amended
The attention of banks, brokers, transfer agents, registrars and all other persons and banking
institutions in the United States is invited to the fact that the Treasury Department construes
Executive Order No. 8389, April 10, 1940, as amended, and the Regulations issued pursuant thereto
as prohibiting the acquisition, transfer, disposition, transportation, importation, exportation, or
withdrawal of, or the endorsement or guarantee of signatures on, or otherwise dealing in, or with
respect to, any security (or evidence thereof) registered or inscribed in the name of any country
designated in Executive Order No. 8389, April 10, 1940, as amended, or any national thereof,
except pursuant to a specific license, irrespective of the fact that at any time (either prior to, on, or
subsequent to April 10, 1940) the registered or inscribed owner thereof may have, or appears to
have, assigned, transferred or otherwise disposed of any such security. Applications for licenses
should be made in the manner provided in the Regulations issued under Executive Order No. 8389,
April 10, 1940, as amended.

include such person unless a license of equal or greater scope is outstanding with respect
to nationals of each other blocked country of which such person is a national.

of any license or from the privileges therein conferred or to restrict the applicability

CONTROL OF IMPORTED SECURITIES

The sending, mailing, importing or otherwise bringing into the United States, on and after
June 7, 1940, from any foreign country, of any securities or evidences thereof or the receiving
or holding in the United States of any securities or evidences thereof so brought into the United
States is prohibited, except on condition that such securities and evidences thereof be immediately
delivered for examination to a Federal Reserve bank as fiscal agent of the United States. Such
Federal Reserve bank, as fiscal agent of the United States, shall hold such securities and all
evidences thereof until the Treasury Department is satisfied as to whether or not any of the
countries named in Executive Order No. 8389, as amended, or any national thereof has at any
time on or since the dates specified in such Order, as amended, had any interest of any nature
whatsoever, direct or indirect, in such securities or evidences thereof. Proof as to whether or not
any of such countries or any national thereof has had any such interest may be submitted to the
Federal Reserve bank holding such securities or evidences thereof.
Customs officers and postal employees are instructed to deliver any such securities or evidences thereof to a Federal Reserve bank. Any articles arriving from any foreign country on or
after June 7, 1940, which in the opinion of customs officers or postal employees contain such
securities or evidences thereof, shall be subjected to customs inspection in accordance with the
Customs Regulations of 1937. If any article opened by an addressee or his agent in the presence

TO GENERAL RULING NO. 6 ACCOUNTS IN DOMESTIC BANKS

General Ruling No. 6 as Amended
(1) The provisions of General Ruling No. 5 of June 6, 1940, and all instructions issued pursuant thereto, are hereby continued in full force and effect, provided, that any Federal Reserve Bank
to whom securities or evidences thereof (hereinafter referred to as securities) have been forwarded
under such general ruling may, as fiscal agent of the United States, deliver the securities, at any
time, under appropriate arrangements with the addressee of the securities, to a domestic bank.
(2) Prior to such delivery by a Federal Reserve Bank of any such security, a complete
description of the security shall be made or received and retained by such Federal Reserve Bank,
and in any case in which a security bears a stamp, seal or other mark not lending itself to precise
description, a photostat of such mark shall be made at the expense of the addressee and retained
by such Federal Reserve Bank. This requirement may be dispensed with in any case in which
appropriate arrangements are entered into for furnishing such Federal Reserve Bank with this
description within a reasonable time after such delivery.
(3) Upon the delivery of any such security by a Federal Reserve Bank to any domestic
bank, such bank shall execute such form of receipt as may be prescribed by the Secretary of the

pursuant to the provisions of General Ruling No. 6 prior to this amendment shall be deemed to
be a General Ruling No. 6 account.
(6) Federal Reserve Banks shall release any security referred to in paragraph (1) hereof, or
shall authorize the release of the contents of any General Ruling No. 6 account, if and when the
Treasury Department is satisfied that no blocked country, or national thereof, has, at any time, on
or since the effective date of the Order, had any interest in such security or in such account.
(7) Any application for a license authorizing any transaction or dealing with respect to a
General Ruling No. 6 account (including the contents thereof) shall specifically indicate that

(8) As used in this general ruling and in any other rulings, licenses, instructions, etc., the
term "General Ruling No. 6 account" shall mean an account of the type referred to in paragraphs
(4) and (5) hereof, and no payments, transfers, or withdrawals may be made from, and no other
transaction or dealing may be effected with respect to, any such account except pursuant to paragraph (6) above or pursuant to license, provided, that:
(a) No license shall be deemed to authorize transactions with respect to a General Ruling No. 6 account unless the provisions of such license are specifically made applicable to a
General Ruling No. 6 account.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR PREPARATION OF REPORTS OF ALL
FOREIGN-OWNED PROPERTY
SECTION I—INTRODUCTION

Reports of all property subject to the jurisdiction of the United States on either or both
June 1, 1940, and June 14, 1941, in which on either or both dates any foreign country whatever or
national thereof had an interest, are required by Section 130.4 of the Regulations of April 10,
1940, as amended, issued pursuant to Executive Order No. 8389, as amended. Additional
reports are required of all property subject to the jurisdiction of the United States on July 26,
1941, in which on said date China or Japan or any national of either thereof had any interest.
Form TFR-300, on which all such property must be reported, has been prepared and issued in
nine series, each designated by a serial letter. Each series TFR-300 Series A through TFR-300
Series I, inclusive, is adapted for facility in reporting the property called for therein, and is
designed for the use of particular groups and classes of persons under duty to report. For
convenience the series will hereinafter be referred to by their serial letters, (i. e., "TFR-300
Series A" will be referred to as "Series A"; "TFR-300 Series B" as "Series B," etc.)
Section II of this Circular contains general instructions applicable to all the series, indicating
briefly the purpose and use of each thereof.
Section III consists of a classification of all property, designated by Classes A to J, inclusive,
and within each classification specific types of property to be reported are designated by subheadings numbered 1 to 30, inclusive. The classes and numbered types of property thereunder are for uniformity in reporting and are applicable in each series where such a classification is required. However, the designation of such classes and numbered types of property
should not be regarded as exempting from the reporting requirements any property not includible
therein.
Sections IV to XII are each devoted to specific instructions pertaining, respectively, to one
of the Series A through I, inclusive. Section XIII gives instructions relating to exchange rates.
BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO PREPARE ANY SERIES, a person required to report
should read completely Sections I, II, and III of this Circular. He should then determine
what series of Form TFR-300 he is obliged to use and examine the Section of this Circular
setting forth specific instructions for that particular series. One person may be obliged to
employ more than one series in order completely to supply the information required, and in
that event should examine the Section pertaining to each such series.
Copies of Executive Order No. 8389, as amended, and the Regulations issued pursuant
thereto, this Circular, and all of the series of Form TFR-300 may be obtained from any Federal
Reserve Bank, the Governor or High Commissioner of any territory or possession of the United
States, and the Secretary of the Treasury, Washington, D. C.
SECTION n—GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
A. Property to be reported.—Except as noted in paragraph F hereof, Section 130.4 (a) of

restriction whatever by or under the Executive Order, as amended, and regardless of whether
a report on Form TFK-100 with respect to such property shall have been previously filed.
Subject to the exceptions in Instruction F following, no person who is a national is excused
from reporting in his own behalf concerning his property or interest in property because of any
doubt he may have as to his status as a national. A person required to report concerning
property of another should regard such other as a national for the purposes hereof, if he has
any reasonable cause to believe that such other is or might be a national. If anyone fails to
report concerning property of a national because he has no knowledge, notice, or other reasonable
cause to believe that such person is a national, he should file a report, with an explanation,
whenever he acquires knowledge, or receives notice, or has reasonable cause to believe that such
person is a national concerning whose property a report is required. Similarly, where a doubt
exists as to whether or not a national had an interest in certain property, and also where there
is reason to believe that a national had such an interest but the identity of the national is in
doubt, all such property should be regarded as coming within the purview hereof.

C. What Series of Form TFR-800 to use.—Nine different series of Form TFR-300 have been
provided. Some persons reporting may be obliged to use more than one series. The brief
description set forth below indicates the persons who should use each particular series, and the
circumstances under which each should be used. This description of each series is intended
only to facilitate the selection of the right and proper series and is not intended as limiting or
restricting the reporting requirements contained in Executive Order No. 8389, as amended, and
the Regulations issued pursuant thereto.




Description of the Series
(1) Series A shall be used (i) by individual nationals not engaged in business, to report
for themselves, and (ii) by other persons to report property interests of such nationals,
except as to property which the person reporting is required to report on one or more
of Series C through H. An individual national employed by another person or engaged
in rendering service in a recognized profession is deemed for the purposes hereof not
to be "engaged in business."
(2) Series B shall be used (i) by all nationals to report for themselves, except individuals
not engaged in business, and (ii) by other persons to report property interests of such
nationals or of foreign countries, except as to property which the person reporting is
required to report on one or more of Series C through H. Trustees and other representatives of estates and trusts (other than trustees of business trusts in which the
interests of beneficiaries were represented by financial securities) shall report the
property of the trust on this Series, when report is required (see Instruction 2 under
Section V of this Circular), but shall report the interests under the trust of beneficiaries
who are nationals, on Series A or B, as appropriate. Reports of the property of
business trusts in which the interests of beneficiaries were represented by financial
securities shall, when a report is required, be made on this Series, but the interests of
beneficiaries who are nationals shall be reported on Series C.
(3) Series C shall be used by organizations, only to report holdings of financial securities of
all types issued by them.
(4) Series D shall be used by banks and safe deposit companies, only to report safe deposit
boxes to which they do not have access and the contents of which are unknown
to them. In any case where a bank or safe deposit company has access to and knowledge of the contents of any such box, other appropriate Series shall be used for reporting property contained therein.
(5) Series E shall be used by banks, only to report deposit accounts, collection items,
cashier's and certified checks, bank acceptances, and letters of credit.
(6) Series F shall be used by banks, only to repoit financial securities in their custody or
held by them as collateral.
(7) Series G shall be used by brokers, only to report balances, securities, and commodities,
and securities and commodities contracts, held for customers.
(8) Series H shall be used by insurers, only to report insurance policies, annuities, pensions,
etc., and claims and indebtedness arising under insurance policies.
(9) Series I shall be used by any person, only to report property subject to the jurisdiction
of the United States on July 26, 1941, in which on said date China or Japan or any
national of either thereof had any interest. A report on this Series is required in
addition to any report with respect to property of China, Japan, and nationals of
either thereof required to befiledon any of Series A through H. Series I is to be used
to report any property as of July 26, 1941, irrespective of the Series which the person
reporting may have been required to employ as of June 14, 1941.
D. Separation oj reports for different countries or nationals.—A separate report shall be made
with respect to each foreign country or national which has any interest in any property to be
reported, but all items of property of each such person covered by any one series shall be included
in one report on that series. For example, if the person reporting owes debts to five different
nationals he will make five separate reports, listing on each report all of his debts to the particular
national for whom that report is made. If he owes one debt jointly to five nationals, he will
also make five separate reports, entering the whole debt on each. If it is known or there is
reasonable cause to believe that a national other than the national in whose name any property
is carried has an interest in or adverse claim upon the property, the property must be shown on
a report for each such national interested or adverse claimant as well as for the national in whose
name it is carried. Any duplication in reporting the same property or debt on several reports,




or duplication by reason of several persons reporting the same property or debt, shall not excuse
anyone from rendering all reports required of him.
E. Time and place of filing report.—Reports must be executed and filed -in quadruplicate on
or before September 30, 1941, with the Federal Reserve Bank of the district or the Governor or
High Commissioner of the territory or possession of the United States in which the person filing
the report resides or has a principal place of business or principal office or agency, or if such person
has no legal residence or place of business or principal office or agency in a Federal Reserve
district or a territory or possession of the United States, then with the Federal Reserve Bank of
New York or the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. Persons reporting should retain a
copy of each report filed by them.
F. When no report need befiled.—Noreport need be filed if either of the following conditions
exists:
(1) If the total value of all property of any national which any one person would otherwise
be required to report was on both June 1, 1940, and June 14, 1941, and, in case of
property required to be reported on Series I, on July 26, 1941, less than $1,000, provided that this exemption shall not apply to the lease of a safe deposit box, to patents,
trade-marks, copyrights, and franchises, to interests in partnerships and profit-sharing
agreements, nor to property the value of which cannot readily be determined, and
provided further, that when reports on several series for one national would be required from any one person, the exemption applies only if the total of all property on
all the series is less than $1,000. In arriving at the value of $1,000, no deduction shall
be made for offsets, liens, or other deductions from gross value; or
(2) If the national concerning whose property a report would otherwise be required, is a
generally licensed national pursuant to General License No. 42 or General License
No. 68, under Executive Order No. 8389, as amended.
General License No. 42 reads in part:

who have been domiciled in and residing only in the United States at all times on and since
the effective date of the Order and at all times on and since June 17, 1940, if such effective
date is subsequent to June 17, 1940: provided, however, that this license shall not be deemed to
license as a generally licensed national any individual who is a national of a foreign country
by reason of any fact other than that such individual has been a subject or citizen of a foreign
country at any time on or since such effective date.

The "effective dates" of the Order which are not "subsequent to June 17, 1940" are, as to
Norway and Denmark and nationals thereof, April 8, 1940, as to the Netherlands, Belgium,
and Luxembourg and nationals thereof, May 10, 1940, and as to France, including Monaco,
and nationals thereof, June 17, 1940.
General License No. 68 reads in part:
A general license is hereby granted licensing as generally licensed nationals individuals
who are nationals of China and Japan and who have been residing only in the United States
at all times on and since June 17, 1940; provided, however, that this license shall not be deemed
to license as a generally licensed national any individual who is a national of China or Japan
by reason of any fact other than that such individual has been a subject or citizen of China or
Japan at any time on or since such date.

G. Penalties.—
(1) Section 5 (b) of the Act of October 6, 1917 (40 Stat. 415), as amended, applicable
hereto, provides in part:
«* * * Whoever willfully violates any of the provisions of this subdivision or of any license, order, rule or regulation issued thereunder, shall, upon
conviction, be fined not more than $10,000, or, if a natural person, may be imprisoned for not more than ten years, or both; and any officer, director, or agent,

called for must be given. When there is nothing to report under any question or if information
is lacking, state "no", "none", or "unknown", as the case may be, with an explanation if required,
except that in Part C spaces not needed for reporting should be left blank. No person is excused
from furnishing information he reasonably should have.

the name of each country of which the person whose property is being reported is a national,
as defined in Section 5E of Executive Order No. 8389, as amended.

be filled out further than to insert the name of the national on the line provided for the name of
the person reporting.

give both the actual name and the trade name.
(c) Nationality.—If the person reporting is a national as defined in Section 5E of Executive
Order No. 8389, as amended, state the name of each country of which he is a national.
6. Part C.—Schedule I.—This Schedule requires the valuation of all the property of the
national within each property type contained in the classification set out in Section III of this
Circular, which must be followed strictly, but property not falling under any of the other types of
the classification must be reported under type 30. No property shall be reported under type 30,
Class J, if it constitutes property reportable as any other type in any other class.
Enter in Column (a) the total value of the items of each type of property held on June 14,
1941, at the market price at the opening of business on June 14, 1941, or if such price is not
available, at the estimated value on that date. In estimating value, the last sale price or bid,
if reasonably close to June 14, 1941, may be used as a basis. Property, the value of which was
expressed in a foreign currency, or which was to be paid or liquidated in a foreign currency, shall




10
be valued at the dollar value if dollar market value existed therefor; if not, the foreign currency
value thereof shall be converted into dollars, in accordance with the instructions relating to
exchange rates given in Section XIII of this Circular. Enter in Column (b) the total value of
the items of each type of property reported as being held on June 1, 1940. The June 14, 1941,
unit value shall be used in boih Column (a) and Column (b). In other words, if the same number

of units of a particular kind of property was held on both June 14, 1941, and June 1, 1940,
enter the same amount in Column (b) as in Column (a). If the number of units of a kind of
property held on June 1, 1940, was different from the number held on June 14, 1941, likewise
use the same per unit value in Column (b) as is used in Column (a). In any case where property
was held only on June 1, 1940, none of it being held on June 14, 1941, the value should be reported
on the basis of tbe value on June 14, 1941, unless such value is not determinable, in which event
the value of such property on June 1, 1940, should be entered in Column (b). In the latter
event an appropriate notation should be made that the June 1, 1940, value was used.
All values should be given in dollars. Do not enter fractions of a dollar.

With respect to goods delivered to a common carrier or other carrier for hire, on or prior
to June 1, 1940, or June 14, 1941, and in transit on either day, (a) a national reporting for himself
shall report the goods if title therein had then been acquired, and if not, his contract right or
other interest in the goods, (b) all persons (other than carriers for hire) who had received such
goods from a national for the national's account, or had forwarded such goods to or for the
account of a national, or to whom such goods had been consigned for a national shall report
such goods or interest therein, (c) common carriers and other carriers for hire having temporary
custody of the goods solely for transportation and actually engaged on June 1, 1940, and June
14, 1941, respectively, in transporting the same, need make no report of such goods. Goods
held by a carrier in a warehouse, or otherwise stored under its control, must be reported by tho
carrier.
Producers and sellers of goods who are not themselves nationals need not report unfilled
orders received from or given to a national, but they must report long-term merchandise contracts with nationals. Such orders, as well as such contracts, must be reported by nationals
themselves.
7. Part C—Schedule II.—This Schedule requires a statement of the indebtedness of the
national payable to persons in the United States, within each indebtedness type as classified and
described in the Schedule. State under each type number only the total amount of indebtedness
of each type being reported. Nationals reporting for themselves should enter all their indebtedness of each type. Persons reporting concerning nationals should enter only the indebtedness
owed by the national to them.

All values should be given in dollars. Do not enter fractions of a

dollar. Indebtedness payable in a foreign currency should be converted into dollars in accordance with the instructions relating to exchange rates given in Section XIII of this Circular.
Note that a person whose sole relation to a national is that the national owes him an unsecured
debt need not file any report whatever on Form TFR-300.
8. Part C—Schedule III.—-List in this Schedule, in the order in which the property types are
given in Schedule I of this part, each item of property of the value of $1,000 or more either on
June 1, 1940, or on June 14, 1941, or both, concerning which report is being made. Property
items included in Class F, i. e., patents, trade-marks, copyrights, and franchises, and in Class PI,
i. e., partnership and profit-sharing agreements, shall be listed even though valued at less than
$1,000. However, no reference whatever should be made to any invention with respect to which
a secrecy order has been issued by the Commissioner of Patents pursuant to the Act of October
6, 1917 (40 Stat. 394), as amended. Also list all items of property the value of which is not
readily determinable A property item is any unit of property commonly bought, sold, assigned,
released, or alienated, except that the total of essentially similar units of the same kind is regarded
as one item, such as a number of certificates each for shares of stock of the same issue, or a
number of separate bonds of the same issue, or several head of cattle. The total number of
certificates or instruments, if available, shall be stated with regard to financial securities and
appropriate designation shall be made of other units of property, but in other respects the property may, when practicable, be treated entirely as one item. Several bank accounts with the




11
same institution, or several debts payable by the same debtor shall be itemized separately in this
Schedule if the aggregate amount thereof exceeds $1,000 even though each individual item is
less than $1,000. Inventories of non-identical items commonly making up one group, such as
household furniture and furnishings, shall not be reported as one item. Except as provided in
this paragraph, property items of a lesser value than $1,000 should not be listed specifically in
this Schedule, although the value of each must be included in determining the total value of
property of each type in Schedule I.
Enter in Column (a) the number of the property type in which the item is included. Enter
in Column (b) a short description or identification of the property item. In case of property,
such as a patent, commonly referred to by number or other similar designation, state briefly the
object or nature of the property in addition to the number or other designation. With regard to
property other than debts and claims, enter in Column (c) the name and address of the person
with whom the property was deposited or by whom it was held, and give the number or other
designation of any safe deposit box or similar receptacle in which the property was kept. With
regard to debts to and claims by the national, state the name and address of the debtor. If the
property is held by or owed by the person reporting, it will suffice to state "Person reporting"
in place of the name and address. Enter in Columns (d) and (e) the value of each property
item on June 14, 1941, and June 1, 1940, as determined in accordance with the instructions for
valuation given above for Schedule I.
Additional sheets identical in form with Schedule III are provided for the use of persons
reporting who find the space in Schedule III insufficient.
9. Part D.—All the information called for in the questions under this part must be given
as of both June 1, 1940, and June 14, 1941, for each of the property items listed in Part C,
Schedule III. If a property item was held on only one date, give the information as of that
date. In the answers each item of property shall be designated by the number of its type and
by its description in Part C, Schedule III.
10. Affidavit.—
(a) Necessity and manner of execution.—The report will not be accepted unless it is properly
signed and sworn (affirmed) to before an officer authorized to administer oaths, whose seal
must be affixed. The affidavit need be attested only on the original of the report, but the
affidavits on copies must be fully conformed, except as to the notarial seal.
(b) Who shall execute.—Affidavits in behalf of partnerships shall be executed by a partner.
Affidavits in behalf of any organization shall be executed by the president, vice president, secretary, or some other principal officer authorized to make the report on behalf of the organization.
SECTION V—INSTRUCTIONS FOR SERIES B
1. Reading indruetions.—Read these instructions in full before beginning to prepare Series B.
If you have not also read carefully Sections I, II, and III of this Circular, do so before reading
these instructions. File all reports in quadruplicate.
2. Scope oj Series B.—This Series is to be used:
(a) By all nationals to report for themselves, except individuals not engaged in business,
and
(6) By other persons to report property interests of such nationals or of foreign countries
except as to property which the person reporting is required to report on one or more of Series
C through Series H.
A person employed by another or engaged in rendering service in a recognized profession is
deemed not to be "engaged in business", and therefore his property should be reported on
Series A. For the scope of all Series of Form TFR-300, see Instruction C in Part II of this
Circular.
Trustees and other representatives of estates and trusts (other than trustees of business
trusts in which the interests of beneficiaries were represented by financial securities) in which an
existing national, or nationals, as beneficiary had any interest, vested or contingent, obliged to
be reported, including interests in income, shall report the property of the trust on this Series
when the total national interests on either or both June 1, 1940, and June 14, 1941, had an




12
immediate value, determined in accordance with standard actuarial practice, of over $50,000,
or when the national interests exceeded ten percent of comparable interests in the trust, regardless of the value of the interests. If the trust is itself a national for any reason, report must be
made for the trust on Series B, irrespective of whether a national was a beneficiary. The report
for the trust should contain on a suitable attached sheet a brief but definite description of the
rights of all existing beneficiaries who were nationals. In any event a trustee shall report any
reportable interest of a beneficiary under a trust on Series A or B, as appropriate, with a clear
reference to the report for the trust on Series B, when such a report is required. A description
of the rights of the beneficiary, similar to that required on reports for trusts, should in any case
be given on the report for the beneficiary. None of the assets of the trust should be entered on
the report for the beneficiary but the total amount of such assets should be given with the
description of the beneficiary's rights. If more than one national was a beneficiary, a separate
report must be made for ea,ch.
Similar principles should be applied wTith respect to partnerships in which a national is a
partner of any sort.
Trustees of business trusts in which the interests of beneficiaries are represented by financial
securities need report the property of the trust only when the trust is itself a national, but the
interests of beneficiaries of such a trust who are nationals shall in any event be reported on
Series C.
3. Answers required.—Each question must be answered and all of the specific information
called for must be given. When there is nothing to report under any question or if information
is lacking, state "no," "none," or "unknown," as the case may be, with an explanation if required, except that in Part C spaces not needed for reporting should be left blank. No person
is excused from furnishing information he reasonably should have. All information required
must be given in the manner prescribed by the Series and by this Circular, and so far as possible,
in the spaces provided on the Series. The filing of a balance sheet or similar statement may
not be substituted for a report on the Series itself.
4. Nationality of person concerning whose property report is being made.—Enter in this space
the name of each country of which the person whose property is being reported is a national, as
defined in Section 5E of Executive Order No. 8389, as amended. Reports for estates and trusts,
other than business trusts in which the interests of the beneficiaries were represented by financial
securities, shall state the country or countries of which the trust itself is a national, if it is a
national, and shall then state the country or countries of which each beneficiary of the trust is
a national. (See Instruction 2.)
5. Part A.—In addition to the other information required, state the business of the national
and the country, state, district, territory, or possession under the laws of which it is incorporated,
or if unincorporated, in which it has its principal place of business. If the national is an individual doing business under a trade name, give that name in addition to the actual name of the
national.
6. PartB.—
(a) General.—If this report is being made by the national for itself, this Part need not be
filled out further than to insert the name of the national on the line provided for the name of
the person reporting. If the national is a partnership, corporation, or other entity, the report
will be deemed to have been made by the national for itself when it is executed in accordance
with Instruction 11 (b).
(b) Name.—If the person reporting is an individual doing business under a trade name,
give both the actual name and the trade name.
(c) Nationality.—If the person reporting is a national as defined in Section 5E of Executive Order No. 8389, as amended, state the name of each country of which it is a national.
7. Part C—Schedule I.—This Schedule requires the valuation of all the property of the national within each property type contained in the classification set out in Part III of this Circular,
which must be followed strictly, but property not falling under any of the other types of the
classification must be reported under type 30. No property shall be reported under type 30,
Class J, if it constitutes property reportable as any other type in any other class.




13
Enter in Column (a) the total value of the items of each type of property held on June 14,
1941, at the market price at the opening of business on June 14, 1941, or if such price is not available, at the estimated value on that date. In estimating value, the last sale price or bid, if
reasonably close to June 14, 1941, may be used as a basis. Property, the value of which was
expressed in a foreign currency, or which was to be paid or liquidated in a foreign currency, shall
be valued at the dollar value if dollar market value existed therefor; if not, the foreign currency
value thereof shall be converted into dollars, in accordance with the instructions relating to
exchange rates given in Section XIII of this Circular. Enter in Column (b) the total value of
the items of each type of property reported as being held on June 1, 1940. The June 14, 1941,
unit value shall be used in both Column (a) and Column (b). In other words, if the same number
of units of a particular kind of property was held on both June 14, 1941, and June 1, 1940, enter
the same amount in Column (b) as in Column (a). If the number of units of a kind of property
held on June 1, 1940, was different from the number held on June 14, 1941, likewise use the same
per unit value in Column (b) as is used in Column (a). In any case where property was held only
on June 1, 1940, none of it being held on June 14, 1941, the value should be reported on the basis
of the value on June 14, 1941, unless such value is not determinable, in which event the value of
such property on June 1, 1940, should be entered in Column (b). In the latter event an appropriate notation should be made that the June 1, 1940, value was used.
All values should be given in dollurs. Do not enter fractions of a dollar.
If, however, in the regular course of its business, the national prepared inventories of merchandise, and machinery and equipment, or either, between December 31, 1940, and July 1, 1941,
and between December 31, 1939, and July 1, 1940, or during either of the foregoing periods,
and if the information required to be furnished in Part C, Schedule I, is not available from other
existing records of the national, such prepared inventories and the values indicated thereon
may be used in Part C, Schedule I, with appropiiate notation of such use.
In respect to goods delivered to a common carrier or other carrier for hire, on or prior to
June 1, 1940, or June 14, 1941, and in transit on either day, (a) a national reporting for itself
shall report the goods if title therein had then been acquired, and if not, its contract right or
other interest in the goods, (b) all persons (other than carriers for hire) who had received such
goods from a national for the national's account, or had forwarded such goods to or for the
account of a national, or to whom such goods had been consigned for a national shall report such
goods or interest therein, (c) common carriers and other carriers for hire having temporary
custody of the goods solely for transportation and actually engaged on June 1, 1940, and June
14, 1941, respectively, in transporting the same, need make no report of such goods. Goods
held by a carrier in a warehouse, or otherwise stored under its control, must be reported by the
carrier.
Producers and sellers of goods who are not themselves nationals need not report unfilled
orders received from or given to a national, but they must report long-term merchandise contracts
with nationals. Such orders, as well as such contracts, must be reported by nationals themselves.
8. Part C—Schedule II.—This Schedule requires a statement of the indebtedness of the national payable to persons in the United States, within each indebtedness type as classified and
described in the Schedule. State under each type number only the total amount of indebtedness
of each type being reported. Nationals reporting for themselves should enter all their indebtedness of each type. Persons reporting concerning nationals should enter only the indebtedness
owed by the national to them. All values should be given in dollars. Do not enter fractions of
dollar. Indebtedness payable in a foreign currency should be converted into dollars in accordance with the instructions relating to exchange rates given in Section XIII of this Circular.
Note that a person whose sole relation to a national is that the national owes him an unsecured
debt need not file any report whatever on Form TFR-300.
A national reporting for itself must file a financial statement (consisting, wherever possible,
of balance sheet, profit-and-loss statement, and surplus reconciliations) for each of its fiscal years
ending nearest to June 14, 1941, and June 1, 1940, respectively, if such statements have been
prepared by or for the national in the course of its business. A person reporting concerning a
401092°—41




3

14
national shall file financial statements of the national if such statements have been received.
The filing of such statements may not be substituted for a report on the Series itself but is merely
in addition thereto. (Compare Instruction 3.)
9. Part C—Schedule III.—List in this Schedule, in the order in which the property types
are given in Schedule I of this Part, each item of property of the value of $1,000 or more either
on June 1, 1940, or on June 14, 1941, or both, concerning which report is being made. Property
items included in Class F, i. e., patents, trade-marks, copyrights, and franchises, and in Class H,
i. e., partnership and profit-sharing agreements, shall be listed even though valued at less than
$1,000. However, no reference whatever should be made to any invention with respect to
which a secrecy order has been issued by the Commissioner of Patents pursuant to the Act of
October 6, 1917 (40 Stat. 394), as amended. Also list all items of property, the value of which is
not readily determinable. A property item is any unit of property commonly bought, sold,
assigned, released, or alienated, except that the total of wholly similar units of the same kind is
regarded as one item, such as a number of certificates each for shares of stock of the same issue,
or a number of separate bonds of the same issue, or several head of cattle. The total number of
certificates or instruments, if available, shall be stated with regard to financial securities and
appropriate designation shall be made for other units of property, but in other respects the
property may be treated entirely as one item. Several bank accounts with the same institution,
or several debts payable by the same debtor, shall be itemized separately in this Schedule if
the aggregate amount thereof exceeds $1,000, even though each individual item is less than
$1,000. Inventories of non-identical items commonly making up one group should not be reported as one item. Except as provided in this paragraph, property items of a lesser value than
$1,000 should not be listed specifically in this Schedule, although the value of each must be
included in the total value of property of each type in Schedule I.
Enter in Column (a) the number of the property type in which the item is included. Enter
in Column (b) a short description or identification of the property item. In case of property,
such as a patent, commonly referred to by number or other similar designation, state briefly
the object or nature of the property in addition to the number or other designation. With regard
to property other than debts and claims, enter in Column (c) the name and address of the person
with whom the property was deposited or by whom it was held, and give the number or other
designation of any safe deposit box or similar receptacle in which the property was kept. With
regard to debts to and claims by the national, state the name and address of the debtor. If the
property is held by or owed by the person reporting, it will suffice to state "Person reporting"
in place of the name and address. Enter in Columns (d) and (e) the value of each property item
on June 14, 1941, and June 1, 1940, as determined in accordance with the instructions for valuation given above for Schedule I.
Additional sheets identical in form with Schedule III are provided for the use of persons
reporting who find the space in Schedule III insufficient.
10. Part D.—All the information called for in the questions under this part must be given as
of both June 1, 1940, and June 14, 1941, for each of the property items listed in Part C, Schedule
III. If a property item was held on only one date, give the information as of that date.
In the answers each item of property shall be designated by the number of its type and by its
description in Part C, Schedule III.
11. PartE —
(a) Trustees.—Trustees and other representatives of trusts and estates should answer the
questions in this Part only with respect to the trusts or estates and not with respect to the
trustees or representatives themselves in their individual capacities. Questions 8 through 1
G
need be answered only by those trustees who have employed trust assets in a business or in control of a business.
(b) Question 11.—For the purposes of this report, an "affiliate" of a specified person is a
person that directly, or indirectly through one or more intermediaries, controls, or is under
common control with, a person specified. A "subsidiary" of a specified person is a person
controlled by such person directly, or indirectly through one or more intermediaries.




15
12. Affidavit.—
'
(a) Necessity and manner of execution.—The report will not be accepted unless it is properly
signed and sworn (affirmed) to before an officer authorized to administer oaths, whose seal must
be affixed. The affidavit need be attested only on the original of the report, but the affidavits
on copies must be fully conformed except as to the notarial seal.
(b) Who shall execute.—Affidavits in behalf of partnerships shall be executed by a partner.
Affidavits in behalf of any organization shall be executed by the president, vice president, secretary, or some other principal officer authorized to make the report on behalf of the organization.
SECTION VI—INSTRUCTIONS FOR SERIES C
General.
1. Reading instructions.—Read these instructions in full before beginning to prepare Series
C. If you have not also read carefully Sections I, II, and III of this Circular, do so before
reading these instructions. File all reports in quadruplicate.
2. Scope of Series C.—
(a) Subdivision of Series.—This Series is to be used by organizations, including partnerships, trusts, associations, and corporations, organized or existing under the laws of the United
States or any State, territory, or district of the United States, or having their principal place of
business in the United States, only to report financial securities issued by them in which a
national had an interest on either or both June 1, 1940, and June 14, 1941. Securities outstanding on one date but not on the other must be reported. The Series is divided into two
parts: Series C-l is to be used to report information concerning each issue of securities in general;
Series C-2 is to be used to report the interests of particular nationals in securities of an issue
described in Series C-l. A separate set of reports in quadruplicate on Series C-l and Series
C-2 must be rendered for each issue of securities. For the scope of all Series of Form TFR-300,
see Instruction C under Section II of this Circular.
(6) Property to be reported.—Report on this Series financial securities as defined in Class B
of Section III of this Circular and unpaid interest and dividends on such securities. Bearer
securities must be reported when the organization reporting has any reason to believe that a
national had an interest in them, as through a mailing address for dividends or for remittance of
interest. This Series is not to be used to report the interest of partners under the partnership
contract, or obligations of other business enterprises which do not constitute financial securities.
Instructions for Series C-l.
3. Part A.—In the space provided under Part A, the organization reporting should state
(a) its name; (b) its address; (c) its business; (d) the state or country of which it is a citizen
or under the laws of which it is incorporated, or if unincorporated, in which it has its principal
place of business; and (e) if the organization reporting is a national, as defined in Section 5E
of Executive Order No. 8389, as amended, the name of each country of which it is a national.
The information may be given by any method producing a readily legible impression, including
a rubber stamp.
4. Part B—Question 2.—In answering this question, state:
(a) In the case of stock, the full designation of the class of stock, and, if not included therein,
the rate of dividends, if fixed, and whether cumulative or noncumulative, and whether
convertible;
(b) In the case of funded debt, the full designation of the issue, and, if not included therein,
the rate of interest and the date of maturity, and if the debt matures serially, a brief
indication should be given of the serial maturities, for example, "maturing serially
from 1936 to 1941"; and
(c) In the case of any other security, an analogous designation.
5. Part B—Question 5.—For the purposes of this report, an "affiliate" of a specified person
is a person that directly, or indirectly through one or more intermediaries, controls, or is under
common control with, a person specified. A "subsidiary" of a specified person is a person
controlled by such person directly, or indirectly through one or more intermediaries.




16
6. Part B—Question 7.—State the market price at the opening of business on June 14, 1941,
or if such price is not available, at the last sale price or bid, if reasonably close to June 14, 1941,
clearly indicating the date and the nature of the value used. If there is no market for the security,
state the estimated or book value and indicate which is being used. If the book value on June 14,
1941, cannot be readily ascertained from the records of the organization reporting, the value
shown in a statement, audit, or report made between December 31, 1940, and June 14, 1941, may
be used, but when no such statement, audit, or report is available the book or estimated value on
June 14, 1941, must be used. If the value used is based on such a statement, audit, or report, so
indicate and state the date thereof. The value should be given in dollars. Do not disregard
cents. Securities, the value of which was expressed in a foreign currency, or which were to be
paid or liquidated in a foreign currency, shall be valued at the dollar value if dollar market value
existed therefor; if not, the foreign currency value thereof shall be converted into dollars, in
accordance with the instructions relating to exchange rates given in Section XIII of this Circular.
7. Part C.—This Part requires a summary of the information furnished on Series C-2.
Duplication should be avoided, i. e., units of a security issue included on more than one report
on that Series (Compare Instruction D under Section II of this Circular) should be taken into
account only once under this question, except when nationals of different countries are interested
in the same units of a security issue. If a^person interested in securities was a national of more
than one foreign country, report the securities only with respect to the country of which he
was a national because of citizenship, or when he had no nationality through citizenship, only
with respect to the country with which his relationships determinative of nationality were
most extensive.
Enter in Column (c) (1) the total value of items held on June 14, 1941, at the price or value
stated under question 7 in Part B. Enter in Column (c) (2) the total value of the items reported
as being held on June 1, 1940. The entries in Column (c) (2) should, however, represent values
of such items on the same basis as was used in Column (c) (1), that is, the price or value stated in
Question 7 should be applied to the items reported as being held on June 1, 1940. Thus, where
the same items are reported for both dates, enter the same amount in Column (c) (2) as in Column
(c) (1). Disregard fractions of a dollar in the totals, but not in the price or value used in computation.
8. Part C—Alternative data.—If desired, the organization reporting may give the security
holdings of nationals, but not the values of those holdings, as of the nearest date before June 1,
1940, on which a record was established of the holders of securities of the issue, provided, however, that such date shall not be prior to December 31, 1939. In such case, state the date in
the space provided under Part C.
9. Affidavit —
(a) Series covered.—The affidavit provided on Series C-l covers Series C-2 as well. Only
one affidavit need be executed by any reporting organization for each issue of securities regardless of the number of persons with respect to whose interests in securities of that issue reports
are being made on Series C-2. The affidavit need be attested only on the original of the report,
but the affidavits on the copies must be fully conformed, except as to the notarial seal. The
reports submitted on Series C-2 shall be numbered consecutively and the numbers shall be
stated in the affidavit.
(b) Necessity and manner oj execution.—The report will not be accepted unless it is properly
signed and sworn (affumed) to before an officer authorized to administer oaths, whose seal must
be affixed.
(c) Who shall execute.—Affidavits in behalf of partnerships shall be executed by a partner.
Affidavits in behalf of other organizations shall be executed by the president, vice president, secretary, or some other principal officer authorized to make the report on behalf of the organization.
Instructions for Series C-2.
10. Nationality oj person concerning whose security interests report is being made.—Enter in
this space the name of each country of which the person whose security interests are being reported is a national, as defined in Section 5E of Executive Order No. 8389, as amended.




17
11. Part B.—In the space provided under this part, enter precisely the same information
given under Part A of Series C-l in compliance with Instruction 3.
12. Part C.—Enter without any change whatever the information given under questions
1, 2, and 7 of Part B of Series C-l, viz., (a) type of security, (b) full title of the issue, (c) market

2. Scope of Series D.—This Series is to be used by banks and safe deposit companies, only to
report safe deposit boxes. In any case where a bank or safe deposit company has access to

property contained therein. For the scope of all Series of Form TFR-300, see Instruction C

6. Part C.—In listing safe deposit boxes in which a person other than the one with respect
to whose property report is being made has an interest, the person reporting should not lose sight
of the requirement that a separate report must be made for each national having any interest
in any particular property. (Instruction D, Section II of this circular.) If the national for
whom report is being made had an interest only in a safe deposit box or boxes rcportable solely
in one subdivision of this Part, write "none" or "unknown", as may be appropriate, in the other
subdivision.
7. Part D.—All the information called for in the questions under this Part must be given as
of both June 1, 1940, and June 14, 1941, for each of the safe deposit boxes listed in Part C. If a
box is listed as of only one date, give the information as of that date. When the person reporting has no knowledge regarding the matters required under any heading, it must so indicate clearly, but no person reporting is excused from furnishing required information it reasonably
should have. In the answers, each safe deposit box shall be designated by the number of its
subdivision and its line number in Part C and by the name in which it was carried if the name
differs from that of the national of whose property report is being made.

6. Part C—Schedule I.—This Schedule requires statement of the amount of the property of
the national in each property type being reported. Types 1, 2, 4, 5, and 6 are classified in accordance with property types in Section III of this Circular, which must be followed strictly.
The numbers in parentheses after the property types in this Part correspond to the type numbers
in Section III of the Circular. Type 3 does not correspond to any one type in Section III, but
includes any kind of property whatever received for collection by the reporting bank. All values
should be given in dollars. Do not enter fractions of a dollar. Property, the value of which was
expressed in a foreign currency, shall be converted into dollars in accordance with the instructions
relating to exchange rates given in Section XIII of this Circular. The following detailed instructions should be observed:
(a) Property types 1 and 2—Deposits.—Under these types give the total balance of the
credit accounts of the national. The amount of items received for collection for the account of
the national and credited to his account, whether provisionally or finally, should be included
under these types. Include also sight or cash items in process of collection for deposit, but the

with appropriate indication of the fact under the Column for that date.
(d) Property type 5—Bank acceptances.—Under this type give the total amount of all drafts

20
(e) Property type 6—Letters of credit.—Under this type give the total unexpended or unused
and then available amount of all letters of credit, whether or not prepaid, including travelers'
checks, outstanding on either or both June 1, 1940, and June 14, 1941, under which the national
had any rights, contingent or absolute, to receive any payments in any amount pursuant to the
terms of the letter of credit or in reimbursement for any unused portion thereof. In determining
the unexpended or unused available amount of a letter of credit deduct from the face amount
thereof or from the upper limit of credit, if greater than the face amount thereof, the amount of
any drafts drawn and accepted thereunder, whether or not paid. No deduction or other adjustment should be made for any cash or other collateral or for any contingent liability under the
letter of credit on the part of the person at whose request the credit was opened. Cash collateral
should be reported under deposits. Other collateral should be reported on Series F if it consists
solely of financial securities, but if not, on either Series A or B, as appropriate.
If the information called for as of June 1, 1940, is not readily available, it may be omitted,
with appropriate indication of the fact under the Column for that date.
7. Part C—Schedule II—(1) Demand deposits.—Itemize in this portion of the Schedule
the deposits totalled under property type 1 in Schedule I. (See instruction 6 (a).) If an account

8. Part C—Schedule II—(2) Time or savings deposits.—Itemize in this portion of the
Schedule the deposits totalled under property type 2 in Schedule I. (See instruction 6 (a).)
If an account was opened before January 1, 1935, enter in the appropriate space, "Prior to

9. Part C—Schedule II—(3) Collection items.—Itemize in this portion of the Schedule the
uncollected items totalled under property type 3 in Schedule I. (See instruction 6 (b).) In the
column "Description of item," give a description of each item sufficient to insure its ready
identification.
10. Part C—Schedule II—(4) Cashier's and certified checks.—Itemize in this portion of the
Schedule the checks totalled under property type 4 in Schedule I. (See instruction 6 (c).)
11. Part C—Schedule II—(5) Bank acceptances.—Itemize in this portion of the Schedule the
acceptances totalled under property type 5 in Schedule I. (See instruction 6 (d).) If an
accepted draft was drawn under a letter of credit, identify the letter of credit in the space provided for description of the acceptance.
12. Part C—Schedule II.—(6) Letters of credit.—Itemize in this portion of the Schedule the
letters of credit totalled under property type 6 in Schedule I. (See instruction 6 (e).) In the
column "Description of item," state (a) the type of the letter of credit, as for example whether
"confirmed" or "unconfirmed," revocable or irrevocable, or revolving (cumulative or noncumulative); (b) the terms of payment, as for example "at sight" or "acceptance, thirty, sixty, and
ninety days"; (c) the person who could draw under the letter of credit; (d) the person at whose

specified.
If the national concerning whom report is being made was liable to the reporting bank for
any drafts which thereafter might be drawn by the national and accepted under the unused
portion of the letter of credit, enter under the caption "Contingent liability of national under
letters of credit" the excess of the total "unused balance", as stated in this portion of the Schedule
over the total unused prepayment, if any, for the letter of credit. Liability of the national for
acceptances actually outstanding and for the unused portion of letters of credit not required to
be reported in this Schedule should be included under Question 4 in Part E.
13. Part D.—All the information called for in the questions under this Part must be given
as of both June 1, 1940, and June 14, 1941, for each of the property items listed in Part C. If a
property item was held on only one date, give the information as of that date. Interests additional to those of the national which are clearly revealed in Part C need not be again described.
If the person reporting has no knowledge regarding the matters required under any heading,
it must so indicate clearly, but no person reporting is excused from furnishing required information it reasonably should have. In the answers, each property item shall be designated




21
by its type number and line number in Part C and by the name in which it was carried if the
name differs from that of the national.
In preparing this Part, the bank reporting should not lose sight of the requirement that
a separate report must be made for each national having any interest in any particular property (Instruction D, Section II, of this Circular). Such a report is additional to and does
not excuse the giving of the information called for in this Part. If the bank knows or has
reason to believe that any national other than the person in whose name a deposit account or
other property was carried had any interest in or claim to the account or other property, a
report must be filed for that national if his identity is known or can be ascertained in the immediate exercise of reasonable diligence, regardless of whether a report is required for the person
in whose name the account or property was carried.
14. Part E.—If the answer to any of the questions in this Part is unknown or is negative,
so state, but no person reporting is excused from furnishing required information it reasonably
should have. With respect to Question 4, see Instruction 12.
15. Affidavit.—
(a) Number of affidavits.—Only one affidavit, on the form supplied with this Series, need
be executed by any person reporting, regardless of the number of persons concerning whose
property reports are being made. The affidavit need be attested only with respect to the original
set of reports, but the affidavit with respect to each set of copies must be fully conformed, except
as to the notarial seal. The reports submitted shall be numbered consecutively and the numbers
shall be stated in the affidavit.
(b) Necessity and manner oj execution.—The report will not be accepted unless it is properly
signed and sworn (affirmed) to before an officer authorized to administer oaths, whose seal must
be affixed.
(c) Who shall execute.—Affidavits in behalf of partnerships shall be executed by a partner.
Affidavits in behalf of an organization shall be executed by the president, vice president, secretary, or some other principal officer authorized to make the report on behalf of the organization.
SECTION IX—INSTRUCTIONS FOR SERIES F
1. Reading Instructions.—Read these instructions in full before beginning to prepare Series
F. If you have not also read carefully Sections I, II, and III of this Circular, do so before reading
these instructions. File all reports in quadruplicate.
2. Scope of Series F.—This Series is to be used by banks, only to report financial securities,
as defined in Section III of this Circular, in their custody or held by them as collateral. For
the scope of all Series of Form TFR-300, see instruction C under Section II of this Circular.
Reports by a bank as trustee or other representative of a trust or estate shall in no case be
made on this Series. (See Instruction 2 of Section V of this Circular.)
3. Definitions.—For the purposes of this Series, the term—
(a) "Bank" shall mean any branch or office within the United States of any national
banking association, bank, private banker, trust company, or savings bank, organized under the
banking laws of the United States, or of any state, territory, district, or possession thereof, or
authorized under such laws to conduct the business of banking subject to supervision and examination pursuant to such laws.
(b) "Custody" shall include customer's securities accounts, security depot or deposit
accounts, safe-keeping accounts, safe deposit boxes to which the bank has access and the contents of which are known to the bank, and any other form of custody in which a bank holds
securities as agent, either alone or jointly with others.
4. Nationality of person concerning whose property report is being made.—Enter in this space
the name of each country of which the person whose property is being reported is a national, as
defined in Section 5E of Executive Order No. 8389, as amended. Compare the second paragraph of Instruction 8 following, with regard to separation of reports for different nationals
having an interest in the same property.
5. Part B.—In the space provided under Part B, the person reporting should state (a) its
name; (b) its address; (c) its business; (d) the state or country of which it is a citizen or under




22

the laws of which it is incorporated, or if unincorporated, in which it has its principal place of
business; and (e) if the person reporting is a national as denned in Section 5E of Executive
Order No. 8389, as amended, the name of each country of which it is a national. The information may be given by any method producing a readily legible impression, including a rubber
stamp.
6. Part C.—Schedule I.—This Schedule requires the valuation of the property in each type
being reported, as classified in Classes A and B of Section III of this Circular, which must be
followed strictly. The numbers in parentheses after the property types in Schedule I correspond
to the type numbers in Classes A and B of Section III.
Enter in Column (a) the total value of the items of each type of property held on June 14,
1941, at the market price at the opening of business on June 14, 1941, or if such price is not
available, at the estimated value on that date. In estimating value, the last sale price or bid, if
reasonably close to June 14, 1941, may be used as a basis. Property, the value of which was
expressed in a foreign currency, or which was to be paid or liquidated in a foreign currency, shall
be valued at the dollar value if dollar market value existed therefor; if not, the foreign currency
value thereof shall be converted into dollars, in accordance with the instructions relating to
exchange rates given in Section XIII of this Circular. Enter in Column (b) the total value of
the items of each type of property reported as being held on June 1, 1940. The June 14, 1941,
unit value shall be used in both Column (a) and Column (6). In other words, if the same number
of units of a particular kind of property was held on both June 14, 1941, and June 1, 1940, enter
the same amount in Column (b) as in Column (a). If the number of units of a kind of property
held on June 1, 1940, was different from the number held on June 14, 1941, likewise use the same
per unit value in Column (b) as is used in Column (a). In any case where property was held
only on June 1, 1940, none of it being held on June 14, 1941, the value should be reported on
the basis of the value on June 14, 1941, unless such value is not determinable, in which event
the value of such property on June 1, 1940, should be entered in Column (b). In the latter
event an appropriate notation should be made that the June 1, 1940, value was used.
All values should be given in dollars. Do not enter fractions oj a dollar.

If the securities held in a custody or collateral account on June 1, 1940, cannot be ascertained with reasonable facility from the records of the bank, the securities, but not the values
thereof, shown in the latest statement, audit, or reconcilement, if any, of the account made between
December 31, 1939, and June 1, 1940, may be used in the Schedule. If values given in Column (b) of the Schedule are based on a statement, audit, or reconcilement of a date other than
June 1, 1940, so indicate and state the date thereof in the space provided below the Schedule.
7. Part C—Schedule II.—list in this Schedule, in the order in which the property types
are given in Schedule I of this Part, each item of property of the value of $1,000 or more on
either June 1, 1940, or June 14, 1941, or both, concerning which this report is being made. Also
list all items of property the value of which is not readily determinable. A property item is
any unit of property commonly bought, sold, assigned, released, or alienated, except that the
total of essentially similar units of the same kind is regarded as one item, such as a number
of certificates each for shares of stock of the same issue, or a number of separate bonds of the
same issue. In such a case, the total number of certificates, etc., shall be stated if feasible, but
otherwise the property may be treated entirely as one item. Except as provided in this paragraph, property items of a lesser value than $1,000 shall not be listed specifically in this Schedule,
although the value of each must be included in determining the total value of property of each
type in Schedule I.
Enter in Column (a) the number of the property type in which the item is included. Enter
in Column (b) a short description or identification of the property item. Enter in Columns (c)
and (d) the value of each property item on June 14, 1941, and June 1, 1940, as determined in
accordance with the instructions for valuation given for Schedule I above. If property items
appearing in any statement, audit, or reconcilement relied on under Schedule I are listed in
Schedule II, appropriate indication must be made.
Additional sheets similar in form to Schedule II are provided for the use of persons reporting who find the space in Schedule II insufficient.




23
8. Part D.—All the information called for in the questions under this Part must be given as
of both June 1, 1940, and June 14, 1941, for all of the securities listed in Part C, Schedule II.
If a property item was held on only one date, give the information as of that date. When
the person reporting has no knowledge regarding the matters required under any heading, it
must so indicate clearly, but no person reporting is excused from furnishing required information it reasonably should have. In the answers, each security shall be designated by its type
number and description in Schedule II.
In preparing this Part, the bank reporting should not lose sight of the requirement that a
separate report must be made for each national having any interest in any particular property.
(Instruction D, Section II, of this Circular.) Such a report is additional to and does not excuse
the giving of the information called for in this Part. If the bank knows or has reason to believe
that any national other than the person in whose name a security account was maintained
had any interest in or claim to the securities in the account, a report must be filed for that
national if his identity is known or can be ascertained in the immediate exercise of reasonable
diligence, regardless of whether a report is required for the person in whose name the account
was held. When the interest or claim of such an additional national was clearly confined to some
particular portion of the securities contained in the account, a report is necessary only as to that
portion, but otherwise the report must include all securities in the account. If any securities held
by the bank as collateral were pledged under a hypothecation agreement executed by a national,
a report must be made of the securities for that national, and if the person primarily liable to
the bank is also a national, another report of the securities must be filed for him.
9. Part E.—If the answer to any of the questions in this part is unknown or is negative
so state, but no person reporting is excused from reporting what it reasonably should know.
10. Affidavit.—
(a)~ Number of affidavits.—Only one affidavit, on the form supplied with this Series, need be
executed by any person reporting, regardless of the number of persons concerning whose property reports are being made. The affidavit need be attested only with respect to the original
set of reports, but the affidavit with respect to each set of copies must be fully conformed, except
as to the notarial seal. The reports shall be numbered consecutively and the numbers shall be
stated in the affidavit.
(b) Necessity and manner of execution.—The report will not be accepted unless it is properly
signed and sworn (affirmed) to before an officer authorized to administer oaths, whose seal must
be affixed.
(c) Who shall execute.—Affidavits in behalf of partnerships shall be executed by a partner.
Affidavits in behalf of any other organization shall be executed by the president, vice president,
secretary, or some other principal officer authorized to make the report on behalf of the
organization.
SECTION X—INSTRUCTIONS FOR SERIES G
1. Beading instructions.—Read these instructions in full before beginning to prepare Series
G. If you have not also read carefully Sections I, II, and III of this Circular, do so before
reading these instructions. File all reports in quadruplicate.
2. Scope of Series G.—This series shall be used by brokers, only to report credit balances,
securities, and commodities, and securities and commodities contracts, held for customers, as
such property is defined in Section III of this Circular. For the scope of all Series of Form
TFR-300, see Instruction C under Section II of this Circular.
3. Nationality of person concerning whose property report is being made.—Enter in this space
the name of each country of which the person whose property is being reported is a national, as
defined in Section 5E of Executive Order No. 8389, as amended.
4. Part B.—In the space provided under Part B, the person reporting should state: (a)
its name, (b) its address; (c) its business; (d) the state or country of which it is a citizen or
under the laws of which it is incorporated or, if unincorporated, in which it has its principal
place of business; and (e) if the person reporting is a national'as defined in Section 5E of Executive Order No. 8389, as amended, the name of each country of which it is a national. This




24

information may be given by any method producing a readily legible impression, including a
rubber stamp.
5. Part C.—Schedule I.—This Schedule requires the valuation of the property of the national
in each property type being reported, as classified in Classes A, B, and D in Section III of this
Circular. The numbers in parentheses after the property types in Part C, Schedule I, correspond
to the type numbers in Section III.
Enter in Column (a) the total value of the items of each type of property held on June 14,
1941, at the market price at the opening of business on June 14, 1941, or if such price is not available, at the estimated value on that date. In estimating value, the last sale price or bid, if
reasonably close to June 14, 1941, may be used as a basis. Property, the value of which was
expressed in a foreign currency, or which was to be paid or liquidated in a foreign currency,
shall be valued at the dollar value if dollar market value existed therefor; if not, the foreign
currency value thereof shall be converted into dollars, in accordance with the instructions
relating to exchange rates given in Section XIII of this Circular. The value of contracts included in type 9, viz., puts and calls and similar contracts, in type 10, viz., unissued securities
contracts, and in type 12, viz., options and futures in commodities, should represent the national's
equity in the contract, that is, it should be based upon the difference between the market price
of the property covered by the contract, on either date for which report is required, and the
delivery price specified in the contract, without regard to any amounts actually paid for the
contract. Enter in Column (b) the total value of the items of each type of property reported as
being held on June 1, 1940.

The June 14, 1941, unit value shall be used in both Column (a) and

Column (6). In other words, if the same number of units of a particular kind of property was
held on both June 14, 1941, and June 1, 1940, enter the same amount in Column (b) as in Column
(a). If the number of units of a kind of property held on June 1, 1940, was different from the
number held on June 14, 1941, likewise use the same per-unit value in Column (b) as is used in
Column (a). In any case where property was held only on June 1, 1940, none of it being held
on June 14, 1941, the value should be reported on the basis of the values on June 14, 1941, unless
such value is not determinable, in which event the value of such property on June 1, 1940, should
be entered in Column (b). In the latter event an appropriate notation should be made that the
June 1, 1940, value was used.
All values should be given in dollars. Do not enter fractions of a dollar.

No deduction shall be made for debit balances or other offsets or claims by the broker
reporting, that is, if the national had two accounts with the broker, one of which showed a
credit balance and the other a debit balance, the full amount of the credit balance must be
entered. Debit balances should be entered in Schedule II of this Part.
If the securities or other property held for a customer on June 1, 1940, cannot be ascertained
from the records of the broker, the securities, but not the values thereof, shown in the latest
statement, audit, or reconcilement, if any, of the account made between December 31, 1939,
and June 1, 1940, may be used in the Schedule. In case of inactive accounts, audited not
more often than once in six months, the statement, audit, or reconcilement nearest to June 1,
1940, made between December 31, 1939, and July 1, 1940, may be used. If values given in
Column (b) of the Schedule are based on a statement, audit, or reconcilement of a date other
than June 1, 1940, so indicate and state the date thereof in the space provided below the
Schedule.
6. Part C—Schedule II.—Enter in Column (a) the total amount of indebtedness in dollars
as of June 14, 1941, and in Column (b) the total amount in dollars as of June 1, 1940. Unrealized
losses on puts, calls, and similar contracts on which the national is obligated, as well as unrealized
losses on unissued securities, should be entered under Type 15 of this Schedule.
7. Part C—Schedule III.—List in this Schedule, in the order in which the property types
are given in Schedule I of this Part, each item of property of the value of $1,000 or more on
either June 1, 1940, or June 14, 1941, or both, concerning which this report is being made. Also
list all items of property, the value of which is not readily determinable. A property item is
any unit of property commonly bought, sold, assigned, released, or alienated, except that the
total of essentially similar units of the same kind is regarded as one item, such as a number of
certificates each for shares of stock of the same issue, or a number of separate bonds of the same



25
issue. In such a case, the total number of certificates, etc., shall be stated if feasible, but otherwise the property may be treated entirely as one item. Several credit balances payable to the
same customer shall be itemized separately in this Schedule if the aggregate amount thereof
exceeds $1,000, even though each individual balance is less than $1,000. Except as provided
in tliis paragraph, property items of a lesser value than $1,000 shall not be listed specifically
in this Schedule, although the value of each must be included in determining the total value
of property of each type in Schedules I and II.
Enter in Column (a) the number of the property type in which the item is included. Enter
in Column (b) a short description or identification of the property item. Enter in Columns
(c) and (d) the value of each property item on June 14, 1941, and June 1, 1940, as determined
in accordance with the instructions for valuation given for Schedule I above. If property items
appearing in any statement, audit, or reconcilement relied on under Schedule I are listed in
Schedule II, appropriate indication must be made.
Additional sheets similar in form to Schedule III are provided for the use of persons reporting who find the space in Schedule III insufficient.
8. Part C—Schedule IV.—Enter in this Schedule each item of indebtedness in excess of
$1,000 on either June 1, 1940, or June 14, 1941, or both, taken into account in Schedule II of
this Part. Indebtedness items of a lesser amount than $1,000 shall not be listed separately in
this schedule, although the value of each must be included in determining the totals of indebtedness types in Schedule II.
Enter in Column (a) the type of indebtedness in which the item is included. Enter in
Column (b) a short description or identification of the indebtedness item, including whether its
terms were time or demand. Enter in Columns (c) and (d) the amount of each indebtedness
item owed, as of June 14, 1941, and June 1, 1940.
All amounts should be given in dollars. Do not enter fractions of a dollar.
9. Part D.—All the information called for in the questions under this Part must be given
as of both June 1, 1940, and June 14, 1941, for each of the property items listed in Part C,
Schedule III. If a property item was held on only one date, give the information as of that
date. When the person reporting has no knowledge regarding any of the matters required under
any heading, it must so indicate clearly, but no person reporting is excused from furnishing
required information it reasonably should have. In the answers each item of property shall
be designated by its type number and description in Part C, Schedule III.
In preparing this Part, the broker reporting should not lose sight of the requirement that a
separate report must be made for each national having any interest in any particular property.
(Instruction D, Section II, of this Circular.) Such a report is additional to and does not excuse
the giving of the information called for in this Part. If the broker knows or has reason to believe
that any national other than the person in whose name a security account was maintained had
any interest in or claim to the securities in the account, a report must be filed for that national
if his identity is known or can be ascertained by the immediate exercise of reasonable diligence,
regardless of whether a report is required for the person in whose name the account was held.
When the interest or claim of such an additional national was clearly confined to some particular portion of the securities contained in the account, a report is necessary only as to that
portion, but otherwise the report must include all securities in the account. If any securities
held by the broker as collateral were pledged under a hypothecation agreement executed by a
national, a report must be made of the securities for that national, and if the person primarily
liable to the broker is also a national, another report of the securities must be filed for him.
10. Part E.—If the answer to any of the questions in this part is unknown, so state, but
no person reporting is excused from furnishing required information it reasonably should have.
11. Affidavit.—
(a) Number of affidavits.—Only one affidavit, on the form supplied with this Series, need
be executed by any person reporting, regardless of the number of persons concerning whose
property reports are being made. The affidavit need be attested only with respect to the original
set of reports, but the affidavit with respect to each set of copies must be fully conformed, except
as to the notarial seal. The reports submitted shall be numbered consecutively and the number
shall be stated in the affidavit.




26
(6) Necessity and manner of execution.—The report will not be accepted unless it is properly
signed and sworn (affirmed) to before an officer authorized to administer oaths, whose seal must
be affixed.
(c) Who shall execute.—Affidavits in behalf of partnerships shall be executed by a partner.
Affidavits in behalf of any organization shall be executed by the president, vice president, secretary, or some other principal officer authorized to make the report on behalf of the organization.

not include policies of insurance, such as fire insurance, having no immediate value other than
unearned or return premiums.

SECTION XII—INSTRUCTIONS FOR SERIES I
1. Reading instructions.—Head these instructions in full before beginning to prepare Series I.
If you have not also read carefully Sections I, II, and III of this Circular, do so before reading
these instructions. File all reports in quadruplicate.
2. Scope oj Series I.—This Series is to be used by any person, only to report property subject
to the jurisdiction of the United States on July 26, 1941, in which on said date China or Japan
or any national of either thereof had any interest. For the purpose of this Series, "national"
shall mean, except where inappropriate, a national of China or a national of Japan. A report
on this Series is required in addition to any report with respect to property of China, Japan,
and nationals of either thereof required to be filed on any of Series A through H. Series I is
to be used to report any property as of July 26, 1941, irrespective of the Series which the person
reporting may have been required to employ as of June 14, 1941. For the scope of all Series
of Form TFR-300, see Instruction C in Section III of this Circular.
Trustees and other representatives of estates and trusts (other than trustees of business
trusts in which the interests of beneficiaries were represented by financial securities) in which




28
an existing national, or nationals, as beneficiary had any interest, vested or contingent, obliged
to be reported, including interests in income, shall report the property of the trust on this Series
when the total national interests on July 26, 1941, had a value, determined in accordance with
standard actuarial practice, of over $50,000, or when the national interests exceeded ten percent
of comparable interests in the trust, regardless of the value of the interests. If the trust is
itself a national for any reason, report must be made for the trust, irrespective of whether a
national was a beneficiary. The report for the trust should contain on a suitable attached sheet
a brief but definite description of the rights of all existing beneficiaries who were nationals. In
any event a trustee shall report any reportable interest of a beneficiary under a trust on a separate report on this Series, with a clear reference to the report for the trust, when such a report
is required. A description of the rights of the beneficiary, similar to that required on reports for
trusts, should in any case be given on the report for the beneficiary. None of the assets of
the trust should be entered on the report for the beneficiary but the total amount of such assets
should be given with the description of the beneficiary's rights. If more than one national was
a beneficiary, a separate report must be made for each.
Similar principles should be applied with respect to partnerships in which a national is a
partner of any sort.
Trustees of business trusts in which the interests of beneficiaries are represented by financial
securities need report the property of the trust only when the trust is itself a national, but the
interests of beneficiaries of such a trust who are nationals shall in any event be reported on
this Series.
3. Nationality of person concerning whose property report is being made.—Enter in this space
the name of each country whatever of which the person whose property is being reported is a
national, as defined in Section 5E of Executive Order No. 8389, as amended.
4. Part A.—In addition to the other information required, state the profession, occupation,
or business of the national and the country, state, district, territory, or possession under the
laws of which it is incorporated, or if unincorporated, in which it has its principal place of business. If the national is an individual doing business under a trade name, give that name in
addition to the actual name of the national.
5. PartB —
(a) General.—If this report is being made by the national for itself, this Part need not be
filled out further than to insert the name of the national on the line provided for the name of
the person reporting. If the national is a partnership, corporation, or other entity, the report
will be deemed to have been made by the national for itself when it is executed in accordance
with Instruction 8 (b).
(b) Name.—If the person reporting is an individual doing business under a trade name,
give both the actual name and the trade name.
(c) Nationality.—If the person reporting is a national as denned in Section 5E of Executive
Order No. 8389, as amended, state the name of each country of which it is a national. Reports
for estates and trusts, other than business trusts in which the interests of the beneficiaries were
represented by financial securities, shall state the country or countries of which the trust itself
is a national, if it is a national, and shall then state the country or countries of which each beneficiary of the trust is a national. (See Instruction 2.)
(d) Relationship of person reporting.—Without limitation of the information required of other
persons reporting, organizations reporting holdings of financial securities issued by them shall
clearly indicate the fact in this space.
6. Part C—Schedule I.—This Schedule requires the valuation of the property of the national
within each property type contained in the classification set out in Section III of this Circular,
which must be followed strictly, but property not falling under any of the other types of the
classification must be reported under type 30. No property shall be reported under type 30,
class J, if it constitutes property reportable as any other type in any other class.
Enter in the column for property holdings the total value of the items of each type of property
held on July 26, 1941, at the market price at the opening of business on July 26, 1941, or, if such
price is not available, at the estimated value on that date. In estimating value, the last sale




29
price or bid, if reasonably close to July 26, 1941, may be used as a basis. All values should be
given in dollars. Do not enter fractions of a dollar. Property, the value of which was expressed

in a foreign currency, or which was to be paid or liquidated in a foreign currency, shall be valued
at the dollar value if dollar market value existed therefor; if not, the foreign currency value
thereof shall be converted into dollars, in accordance with the instructions relating to exchange
rates given in Section XIII of this Circular.
In respect to goods delivered to a common carrier or other carrier for hire, on or prior to
July 26, 1941, and in transit on that day, (a) a national reporting for itself shall report the
goods if title therein had then been acquired, and if not, its contract right or other interest in
the goods, (b) all persons (other than carriers for hire) who had received such goods from a
national for the national's account or had forwarded such goods to or for the account of a national,
or to whom such goods had been consigned for a national, shall report such goods or interest
therein, (c) common carriers and other carriers for hire having temporary custody of the goods
solely for transportation and actually engaged on July 26, 1941, in transporting the same,
need make no report of such goods. Goods held by a carrier in a warehouse, or otherwise
stored under its control, must be reported by the carrier.
Producers and sellers of goods who are not themselves nationals need not report unfilled
orders received from or given to a national, but they must report long-term merchandise contracts with nationals. Such orders, as well as such contracts, must be reported by nationals
themselves.
7. Part C—Schedule II.—List in this Schedule, in the order in which the property types
are given in Schedule I of this Part, each item of property of the value of $1,000 or more on
July 26, 1941, concerning which report is being made.
Property items included in Class F, i. e., patents, trade-marks, copyrights, and franchises,
and in Class H, i. e., partnership and profit-sharing agreements, shall be listed even though valued
at less than $1,000. However, no reference should be made to any invention with respect to
which a secrecy order has been issued by the Commissioner of Patents pursuant to the Act of
October 6, 1917 (40 Stat. 394), as amended. Also, list all items of property the value of which
is not readily determinable. A property item is any unit of property commonly bought, sold,
assigned, released, or alienated, except that the total of essentially similar units of the same
kind is regarded as one item, such as a number of certificates each for shares of stock of the
same issue, or a number of separate bonds of the same issue, or several head of cattle. The
total number of certificates or instruments shall be stated, if feasible, with regard to financial
securities, and appropriate designation shall be made for other units of property, but in other
respects the property may, when practicable, be treated entirely as one item. Several bank
accounts with the same institution, or several debts payable by the same debtor shall be itemized
separately in this Schedule if the aggregate amount thereof exceeds $1,000 even though each
individual item is less than $1,000. Inventories of non-identical items commonly making up
one group, such as household furniture and furnishings, shall not be reported as one item.
Except as provided in this paragraph, property items of a lesser value than $1,000 should not
be listed specifically in this Schedule, although the value of each must be included in determining
the total value of property of each type in Schedule I.
Enter in Column (a) the number of the property type in which the item is included. Enter
in Column (b) a short description or identification of the property item. In case of property, such
as a patent, commonly referred to by number or other similar designation, state briefly the object
or nature of the property in addition to the number or other designation. With regard to property other than debts and claims, enter in Column (c) the name and address of the person with
whom the property was deposited or by whom it was held, and give the number or other designation of any safe deposit box or similar receptacle in which the property was kept. With regard
to debts to and claims by the national, state the name and address of the debtor. If the property
is held or owed by the person reporting, it will suffice to state "Person reporting" in place of
the name and address. Enter in Column (d) the value of each property item on July 26, 1941,
as determined in accordance with the instructions for valuation given above for Schedule I.
Additional sheets identical in form with Schedule II are provided for the use of persons
reporting who find the space in Schedule II insufficient.



30
8. Affidavit.—
(a) Necessity and manner of execution.—The report will not be accepted unless it is properly
signed and sworn (affirmed) to before an officer authorized to administer oaths, whose seal must
be affixed. The affidavit need be attested only on the original of the report, but the affidavits
on copies must be fully conformed, except as to the notarial seal.
(b) Who shall execute.—Affidavits in behalf of partnerships shall be executed by a partner.
Affidavits in behalf of any organization shall be executed by the president, vice president,
secretary, or some other principal officer authorized to make the report on behalf of the organization.

SECTION Xin—TABLE OF EXCHANGE RATES
Where the value of property is expressed in terms of foreign currency, such values should be
converted into dollars at the rates of exchange set forth below. Where no rate is given for a
country, the latest rate next before June 14, 1941, as generally quoted by foreign exchange
dealers or other recognized sources of information, shall be used. Such rate should be clearly
stated in the report. The exchange rates given in this table are for use only in preparing reports
on Form TFR-300 and are not intended to be used or relied upon in any other connection or for
any other purpose whatsoever.

TREASURY DEPARTMENT
Office of the Secretary
August 18, 1941.

To all Banks in the United States:
This Department has issued Form TFR-300 for the reporting of all property subject to the jurisdiction
of the United States on either or both June 1, 1940, and June 14,1941, in which any foreign country whatever or any national thereof had any interest of any nature whatsoever, direct or indirect. Report must be
made regardless of whether a report on Form TFR-100 with respect to any such property shall have previously been filed. Additional reports are required regarding all property subject to the jurisdiction of
the United States on July 26, 1941, in which on said date China or Japan or any national thereof had any
interest. All reports are to be filed on or before September 30, 1941.
For your information there is enclosed a copy of Public Circular No. 4, dated August 16,1941, entitled
'' Instructions for Preparation of Reports on Form TFR-300 of All Foreign-owned Property Subject to the
Jurisdiction of the United States''. As stated in Section I of the Circular, Form TFR-300 has been issued
in nine series, Series A to Series I, inclusive, each series being designed for the use of particular groups and
classes of persons under a duty to report. The purpose of each series is summarized in Section II of the
Circular.
Reports must be filed by nationals themselves, by persons having property of nationals, by organizations
whose securities are held by nationals, and by persons acting as agents or representatives of nationals. However, no report need be filed if the total value of all property of any national which any one person would
otherwise be required to report was less than $1,000, except that this exemption does not apply to leases
of safe deposit boxes, patents, trademarks, copyrights, franchises, interests in partnerships or profit-sharing
agreements or property the value of which cannot readily be determined. No reports are required regarding
the property of nationals who are '' generally licensed nationals'' under General License No. 42 or General
License No. 68, pertinent portions of which appear on page 5 of the Circular.
It will be necessary for banks to file reports regarding property held by them for nationals on the
specified dates. If a bank held several types of property for a particular national, it may be obliged to make
a report on more than one series of Form TFR-300 for that national. In addition to preparing such reports
as may be required of them, banks can lend valuable assistance by disseminating information regarding the
necessity of filing reports to such of their customers as may be concerned and should make available to such
customers Public Circular No. 4 containing the instructions regarding reports.
Additional copies of Public Circular No. 4 and the various series of Form TFR-300 may be obtained
from any Federal Reserve Bank. Enclosed are order blanks which may be used to obtain the copies of these
materials needed by you. Such order blanks should be sent to the Federal Reserve Bank in your district.

Acting Secretary of the Treasury.

The Control of Foreign Funds
Answers to Some Questions About "Freezing"
The "freezing" of certain foreign funds by the United
States Government presents a number of problems vitally
important to banks. In this interview with two Treasury
officials the questions that are of first importance in this
field are raised and answered.
The answers in the interviezv are by EDWARD H.
General Counsel of the Treasury Depart-

FOLEY, JR.,

ment, and JOHN W. PEHLE, Assistant to the Secretary

of the Treasury. The questions were asked for

BANKING

by HERBERT M. BRATTER.

1. What is the purpose of "freezing" control?
1 HE two words most aptly answering that question are
"economic defense". Beyond that, reference might be
made to the press release issued by the White House on
June 14, 1941, relative to the extension of "freezing"
control. In such release it was stated:
"The Executive Order is designed, among other
things, to prevent the use of the financial facilities of the
United States in ways harmful to national defense and
other American interests, to prevent the liquidation in
the United States of assets looted by duress or conquest, and to curb subversive activities in the United
States."
2. Does "freezing" control affect anything other than
transactions in foreign exchange and similar transactions in the field of international finance and
trade ?
JLHE answer to this question is very definitely "yes".
The "freezing" control imposed by Executive Order No.
8389, as amended, affects transactions of a purely domestic character as well as those of international scope
if any blocked country or any national thereof has an
interest in the domestic transaction. Thus a bank may
not, except under general or specific license, permit withdrawals from blocked accounts even though the withdrawals are for purely domestic purposes or permit with-




drawals from a blocked account where the blocked
national is in the United States rather than in Europe.
3. Is there any rule of thumb which might be employed by banks for their general guidance and
protection in determining whether transactions
require a license in order to be effected?
OBVIOUSLY there is no substitute for a thorough knowledge of the Order, regulations, rulings, general licenses
and public circulars relating to freezing control. That is
the only way for banks to protect themselves fully and
at the same time perform a necessary service for their
customers. Pending complete familiarity with the freezing regulations the following rule of thumb may be used
as a general guide by banks:
"Any transaction which involves a banking institution
and in which any blocked country or any national of a
blocked country has any interest of any nature whatsoever,
direct or indirect,is prohibited except pursuant to license."
In applying this rule of thumb, banks should keep in
mind that the terms "banking institution" and "national" are defined in section 5 of the Executive Order
and are very comprehensive in scope. These definitions
should be studied at once.
It cannot be emphasized too strongly that the
freezing order affects the operation of every bank in
the United States, and a thorough understanding of the
documentation furnished each bank by the several
Federal Reserve banks is imperative not only to protect
the bank and its customers against violations of the
Order but also to enable the banks to play the important
role assigned to them in this vital defense measure.
Many banks have a large staff engaged exclusively on
freezing control matters. Other banks not having the
need for a department of this character have found it
highly desirable to assign to one of their senior officers
the responsibility for keeping fully abreast of all developments in this increasingly important field and for guiding other members of the bank's staff, as well as the
public, regarding such matters.

4. What is a "blocked account"?
J.HE term "blocked account" has been denned in General Ruling No. 4 as follows:
"The term 'blocked account' shall mean an account
in which any blocked country or national thereof has an
interest, with respect to which account payments,
transfers or withdrawals or other dealings may not be
made or effected except pursuant to a license authorizing such action. The term 'blocked account' shall not be
deemed to include free dollar accounts of the type referred to in General License No. 32, as amended, or the
accounts of generally licensed nationals."
The same general ruling defines the term "blocked
country" as any foreign country designated in the
Executive Order, i.e., any country to which the freezing
control has been extended.
5. What are the obligations of a bank in connection
with the blocking of accounts?
J. HE Executive Order imposes a definite obligation
upon banking institutions in the United States to block,
and thus to require licenses with respect to, every account in which any blocked country or any national
thereof has an interest of any nature whatsoever, direct
or indirect. In certain specified cases this obligation has
been lifted by general and specific licenses, as for example General Licenses No. 42 and 51. In all other cases
banking institutions should utilize all the resources at
their disposal in determining which account should be
blocked. This, of course, would include not only the information in their files but also the knowledge of the
officers of the institution. A knowledge of the definition
of "national" appearing in section 5 of the Order is a
prerequisite to knowing which accounts are required to
be blocked. In this connection attention is invited to the
fact that such definition expressly provides that the
term "national" includes:
"Any other person who there is reasonable cause to
believe is a 'national' as herein defined."
The successful operation of the Executive Order requires the fullest cooperation, resourcefulness and
initiative on the part of banks in blocking accounts.
6. What should a bank having an account for a certain person do when it learns that another bank
has blocked the account of such person?
X F the first bank has not already blocked the account in
question it is immediately placed on notice that the
account should probably be blocked and, in the absence




of definite information to the contrary, it should accordingly block the account pending further study of
the case. Certainly the fact that one bank has blocked
the account of an individual will be cause for other
banks to have reasonable cause to believe the party in
question is a national of a blocked country. Having reasonable cause to believe that a person is a national of a
blocked country requires a bank to block an account unless there is an outstanding general or specific license
lifting such obligation.
7. What if a bank blocks an account and subsequently discovers information leading it to conclude that the account should not be blocked?
J. N other than clear-cut cases the bank should advise the
Treasury Department of the facts through the appropriate Federal Reserve Bank and if the Treasury Department agrees, it will authorize the account to be
freed. Banks may assume that the Treasury Department will employ fully its large powers to protect them
where they have blocked accounts in good faith.

8. Is it true that the Executive Order and Regulations require census reports, for instance with respect to British and Latin American assets in the
United States, as well as those of all the blocked
countries like Germany, France, Switzerland, the
Netherlands, etc.?
YES. The Regulations require that census reports on
Form TFR-300 be filed by banks and all other persons
with respect to property in which any foreign country, or
nationals thereof, have an interest. Of course General
License No. 42 has specifically lifted this obligation in
certain cases but banks and other persons must be satisfied that the general license applies before relying upon
it to excuse them from filing a report in any given case.

9. What should banks do in cases where they are in
doubt as to what they are required to do under
the "freezing" orders with respect to a particular
transaction?
I T is suggested that they either get in touch with the
Federal Reserve bank in their district or write directly
to the Treasury Department for advice. In most cases
they probably will find it more convenient and expeditious to communicate with the appropriate Federal
Reserve bank.
