qualified f o r sale o f S e r i e s E W a r S a v i n g s B o n d s :
1. All sales of Savings Bonds made on and after September 1 and prior to the close of
the Drive will be included in the totals for the Drive.
2. A substantially greater number of Series E Bonds will be issued during the month of
September than has been issued in any previous month. I n anticipation of this increase,
issuing agents are urged to requisition in advance an adequate supply of bond stock so that
they will be prepared to make prompt delivery of bonds during the Drive. I f the maximum
amount of bond stock which any agent is authorized to have on hand is considered insufficient
to meet the demands anticipated during the Drive, we will consider a temporary increase in
such maximum upon receipt of a written request therefor accompanied by a statement of the
facts indicating the necessity for the increase.
3. For the duration of the Drive all issuing agents, except those issuing bonds exclusively
to persons enrolled in payroll allotment plans, are requested to report and remit for sales
not less frequently than tivice each iveek. Agents issuing bonds exclusively to persons under
payroll allotment plans should report sales as frequently as possible. More frequent reporting
by all agents will facilitate our work and will enable us to furnish accurate and up-to-date
sales reports to the State W a r Finance Committees which will disseminate such information
among the County Chairmen throughout the Second Federal Reserve District.
