It is urged that tenders be made on the printed forms and forwarded in the special envelopes which will
be supplied by Federal Reserve Banks or Branches on application therefor.
Tenders will be received without deposit from incorporated banks and trust companies and from responsible and recognized dealers in investment securities. Tenders from others must be accompanied by payment of 10 percent of the face amount of Treasury bills applied for, unless the tenders are accompanied
by an express guaranty of payment by, an incorporated bank or trust company.
Immediately after the closing hour, tenders will be opened at the Federal Reserve Banks and Branches,
following which public announcement will be made by the Secretary of the Treasury of the amount and

exempt from all taxation now or hereafter imposed on the principal or interest thereof by any State, or any

FEDERAL RESERVE B A N K
OF N E W YORK

April 10,
LETTER S 3 I T TO ALL MSffiER BANKS

Gentlemen:
The Board of Governors and the Federal Reserve Banks have undertaken
to make a survey of commercial and industrial losns made by member banks between
April 16 and Llay 15 (both d&tes inclusive), Copies of ttirra to be filled out aid
of instructions are enclosed. The purpose of this survey is to provide information, now unavailable, concerning the kinds of loans that are currently being
made by banks. This TH.11 be of particular value at the present tine. In view of
the importance of the natter, the scarcity of data on this subject, and the fact
that this is a one-time inquiry rather than a series of regular reports, the
information called for is in somewhat more detail than ia customary in Federal
Reserve statistical inquiries. The infomation obtained will be published only
in the form of aggregates so as not to reveal operations of individual brmks.
As you will note from the form and the instructions, information is to
be entered on the form for each commercial and industrial loan above a specified
size made during the period covered. Commercial and industrial loans are defined
in the same way as fcr reporting item 1 in schedule A of the call report of condition. Names of individual borrowers are not requested; the perforated stub
attached to the form, which provides space for names, is for the convenience of
banks that may wish to use it in filling out the report, and should be detached
before forwarding the report to the Federal Reserve Bank. Data are requested
as to the anount of each loan, the business and size of the borrower, the maturity
of the loan, the interest rate charged, and whether the loan is for defense purposes* 'There precise information on any of these items is not readily available
to your bank, please give us the benefit of your best estimate.
Information may be entered as each loan is made, or may be taken from
the records later, in accordance with your preference or convenience. In the
case of branch banks, separate reports may be submitted for each branch, or the
reports for all branches in any one city or county may be consolidated. In case
more than one lorn is made to a single borrower in the period, they may be reported separately or combined. Information is requested for loans that are
renewed, in whole or in part, within the period covered by the report, as well
as for new loans made. Details are not requested for individual loans which are
on the books on April 15 but are not renewed during the reporting period,
The total of all commercial and industrial loans outstanding as of the
beginning and end of the period should be reported in the upper ri^ht-hand corner
of the form. This is to provide a measure of the net change in the totd of
such loans during the period. While detailed information concerning loans below
the specified size need not be listed, the total amount of such loans made during
the period is also requested.



The Board of Governors and the Federal Reserve Banks fully appreciate
the trouble and cost to member banks of submitting reports and are considering
how this may be diminished. On the other hand they are under the necessity of
making important decisions that may affect not only the welfare of banks and
their customers but the economy as a whole, and need as full and accurate information as possible, on which to base these decisions. It is expected that
the information obtained froin the reports now requested will be very helpful
in meeting this responsibility. Your cooperation in supplying this information,
therefore, will be much appreciated. If, however, by reason of the circumstances
of your present situation, you feel that the recording of the information requested would involve an unreasonable degree of interference with your operations,
it will be understood if you will advise me to that effect. Completed reports
should be forwarded to this Federal Reserve Bank, if practicable, by May 22.
Very truly yours,
Allan Sproul,
President.

Note: In case the number of copies of the report form enclosed is not sufficient,
please indicate on the attached card the number of additional copies desired, and mail the card to this Federal Reserve Bank.

the month are, if practicable, to be mailed to your Federal Reserve Bank
not later than May 22• In no case is the name of the borrower to be
jiven. Information on individual loans and for individual banks vail
be treated as strictly confidential, and the data will be published only
in the form of aggregates which will not reveal the operations of any
individual bank. Branches may report separately, as if they were separate banks* if this is more convenient. In such cases branches will
use the minimum reporting loan size limit applicable to individual
banks of that size.




In answering question 1 at the top of the report form, report
the total amount of commercial and industrial loans outstanding at the
close of business on April 15 and the amount outstanding at the close
of business on May 15* In answering question 2, report against item
(a) the total amount of commercial and industrial loans (including renewals) made during the reported month which are reported individually
in the spaces below, and report against item (b) the total amount o£
commercial and industrial loans (including renewals) made during the
reported month which are not reported individually. The sum of these
two items reported for question 2 should equal the total amount off commercial and industrial loans made during the reported month*
Column It For each commercial and industrial loan made or
renewed during the month of or above the minimum reporting size indicated in the column heading, the amount advanced or renewed is to be
indicated in this column. Only loans actually made are to be listedj
commitments are not to be included. If the reporting bank is participating with other banks in a loan, it should report only its own participation. If several loans are made to the same borrower during the
reporting period, these may be reported as one loan or listed separately. Receivables discounted for the same borrower should be reported
as one loan each day or each monthly reporting period, whichever is
more convenient. Receivables arising out of consumer credit are not
to be reported, even though later discounted by the business firm receiving them, since such paper is included as "All other loans" in the
Call Report,
If you have made less than 10 loans larger than the minimum
reporting limit during the month, list the 10 largest commercial and
industrial loans (including renewals) which you made during the month.
Column 2. In this column insert for each loan the number
from 1 to 13 from the classification code in the upper left-hand corner
of the form which best describes the business of the borrower. In case
the borrower is engaged in more than one of these businesses, make the
best possible judgment as to which phase of his business the loan is
intended for. If you wish to make any special comments on the classification of particular loans, they should be written on the back of
the report form.
Columns3 to 6, inclusive. The size of the borrowing firm,
as measured by approximate total assets on some recent date, should be
shown by a check in the appropriate column. Estimate assets if no
balance sheet is available.
Column 7. A check should be placed in this column if the
maturity ox the loan is one year or over.




Column 8. This column should be checked only if the transaction is entirely a renewal of outstanding loans. If any portion of
the transaction constitutes an addition to the amount already outstanding to the' borrower, this column should not be checked.
Column 9. Indicate in this column the interest or discount
rate charged on this loan.
Columns 10 and 11. In drawing the distinction between "defense" and ""non-defense" loans use the following method. Include as
defense loans all loans made di.rectly or indirectly for national defense purposes, whether made to prime contractors or to subscontractors
and whether or not secured by assigned Government contracts. In the
absence of information to the contrary, it may be assumed that if a
borrower is engaged to a substantial extent directly or indirectly in
providinc facilities, supplies or equipment for national defense, new
loans to such a borrower may be considered as defense loans. All loans
not so classifiable are to be considered non-defense loans. Check both
sub-columns only in case the proceeds of the loan are to be used to a
substantial extent partly for defense and partly for non-defense purposes*

In case loan appears to be p a r t i a l l y in more than one of these categories, use your best judgment as to which one best represents the major use of the funds.
^ Do not check both columns unless the loan is substantially for both defense and non-defense purposes.
