SIXTH W A R LOAN
GENERAL INFORMATION AND TREASURY CIRCULARS

To all Banking Institutions
in the Second Federal Reserve

District:

The Treasury Department has established for the Sixth War Loan Drive a goal of
14 billion dollars, to be raised through the sale of United States Government securities to
investors other than banking institutions accepting demand deposits.
individuals, included in this amount, is 5 billion dollars.

The quota for

The drive will start on

November 20 and will run through December 16, 1944, but all subscriptions to Savings
Bonds and Savings Notes processed by the Federal Reserve Banks or the Treasury
Department during the months of November and December will be credited to the drive.
With critical phases of the war still ahead, it is urgent that the objectives of the drive be
attained and exceeded. Special emphasis will be placed upon the attainment of the quota for
individuals. The efficient cooperation of the banks of the country and of this District will continue to be a major factor in the solicitation and entering of subscriptions, particularly for
their customers.
In accordance with our procedure in previous drives, this circular contains general
information regarding the drive and the official offering circulars relating to each of the
issues to be sold. If the members of your staff will study carefully the material on pages 2 to 8
of this circular prior to the opening of the drive and retain copies for ready reference during the drive, we believe that their work will be facilitated and the success of the drive
promoted.

SPROUL,

President.

Restrictions on subscriptions by commercial banks for own account
The 14 billion dollar goal of the Sixth War Loan Drive is to be raised entirely from nonbanking sources.
Accordingly, commercial banks (banking institutions accepting demand deposits) will not be permitted to
enter cash subscriptions for their own account to the securities offered in the drive except to the limited extent
provided in this paragraph. Commercial banks holding savings deposits or issuing time certificates of
deposit, as defined in Regulation Q of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, may enter cash
subscriptions to 2y 2 % Treasury Bonds of 1966-71 and 2% Treasury Bonds of 1952-54, during the period
November 20 to December 16, 1944, and to United States Savings Bonds of Series F-1944 or Series G-1944,
during the period November 17 to December 30, 1944, but the amount of such subscriptions may not exceed in
the aggregate 10% of the combined amount of time certificates of deposit (but only those issued in the names
of individuals, and of States, municipalities, political subdivisions, corporations, associations and other
organizations not operated for profit) and of savings deposits, as shown on the bank's books as of the date
of the most recent call statement required by the supervisory authorities prior to the date of subscription
for such bonds, or $500,000, whichever is less. In any event, a bank may not hold more than $100,000
(issue price) of Savings Bonds of Series F-1944 and Series G-1944 combined. If 10% of the combined amount
of savings deposits and eligible time certificates of deposit is an odd amount, the aggregate amount of its
subscriptions may be adjusted to the next highest $1,000. Commercial banks may subscribe for their own
account to Treasury Savings Notes, Series C*, in any amount. Subscriptions to any of these issues by
commercial banks for their own account will not be counted toward the goal of 14 billion dollars and will
not be credited to any quota.
Except for the subscriptions in limited amounts in relation to savings deposits and time certificates
of deposit, the 2 % % Treasury Bonds of 1966-71 may not be held by commercial banks for their own account
before December 1, 1954.
The Treasury has requested that there be no trading in any of the marketable securities and no purchases of such securities other than on direct subscription until after December 16,1944. Commercial banks
may acquire 2% Treasury Bonds of 1952-54,1*4% Treasury Notes of Series C-1947 or % % Treasury Certificates of Indebtedness of Series H-1945 for their own account in the open market after December 16, 1944.
Receipt of applications for securities and submission of subscriptions
During the drive, banking institutions will receive applications on forms provided by the State War
Finance Committees for securities to be purchased for account of customers and others. These forms should
not be forwarded to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York but should be retained by the banking institution. In cases of applications for Series E War Savings Bonds, the banking institution should issue the
bonds directly; in cases of applications for any other securities, the banking institution should submit to the
Federal Reserve Bank of New York a subscription on the appropriate subscription form furnished by the
Federal Reserve Bank.
* Any sueh notes purchased by commercial banks bear interest only if used in the payment of Federal taxes.

Subscriptions for 21/2% Treasury Bonds of 1966-71, 2% Treasury Bonds of 1952-54, PA% Treasury
Notes of Series C-1947, and %% Treasury Certificates of Indebtedness of Series H-1945, for account of
customers may be submitted only by banking institutions. Security dealers, brokers, savings and loan associations and others may not enter subscriptions to such issues for account of customers except through
banking institutions.
Subscriptions for Treasury Savings Notes of Series G for account of customers may be submitted by
banking institutions and security dealers.
Subscriptions for Series E War Savings Bonds may be filled directly by any organization duly authorized to issue such bonds. Subscriptions for Series F and Series G Savings Bonds for account of customers
may be submitted to the Federal Reserve Bank by any banking institution or by any other organization
authorized to issue Series E bonds.
In order to permit the full use of War Loan Deposit Accounts and to minimize the amount of accrued
interest payable, customers and others should be encouraged to submit their subscriptions through banking institutions. Where this is not feasible, however, a purchaser may submit a subscription for his own
account directly to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
Subscriptions submitted to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York should be made on the official
forms furnished by it. The appropriate forms for use in subscribing to each type of security offered,
are as follows:

A sample of each of these forms is. enclosed; additional supplies will be furnished to all banking institutions in the Second Federal Reserve District in advance of the opening of the Sixth War Loan Drive.
Since the limited subscriptions by commercial banks for their own account to 2 y 2 % Treasury Bonds of
1966-71, 2% Treasury Bonds of 1952-54, and United States Savings Bonds of Series F-1944 and Series
G-1944 are considered outside the goal of the drive, copies of Form No. 7 to be used in entering such subscriptions will be sent under separate cover to all commercial banks in the district.
Payment for securities
Subscriptions must be accompanied by payment in full, except in the limited cases of deferred payment referred to on page 5.
Banking institutions qualified as special depositaries of public moneys under Treasury Department
Circular No. 92 (Revised) may pay the full purchase price (both principal and accrued interest) of any
securities subscribed for during the drive by credit to their War Loan Deposit Accounts. Credit for the purchase price of the 2 y 2 % Treasury Bonds of 1966-71, the 2% Treasury Bonds of 1952-54, the 1 % % Treasury
Notes of Series C-1947 and the % % Treasury Certificates of Indebtedness of Series H-1945, may be entered
in a War Loan Deposit Account on or after November 20, 1944, the date of the opening of the drive. Qualified depositaries are urged to make full use of their War Loan Deposit Accounts.
A banking institution qualified as a special depositary of public moneys, which receives an application
for United States Government securities accompanied by a check payable to the order of the Treasurer
of the United States or to the order of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York as fiscal agent of the United
States, may endorse such check as follows:




For credit to War Loan Deposit Account
Federal Reserve Bank of New York
Fiscal Agent of the United States
in payment for U. S. Government securities
(Name of Bank)
Page 3

and credit the proceeds of such check to its War Loan Deposit Account in payment for the securities.
Checks drawn in substantially similar forms, such as to the order of "Secretary of the Treasury", "United
States Treasury", " W a r Finance Committee", or "Federal Reserve Bank", may be handled in the same
manner. In any such case, the War Loan Deposit Account should not be credited and the subscription
should not be submitted to the Federal Reserve Bank (or, in the case of Series E War Savings Bonds, the
bonds should not be delivered) until the banking institution is satisfied that the check has been paid in
actually and finally collected funds.
Any member bank of the Federal Reserve System or any nonmember clearing bank may pay for securities by authorizing a charge to the reserve account or nonmember clearing account maintained by it with
the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
Any banking institution may pay for securities by check. Checks should be drawn by the banking
institution either to the order of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York or to the order of the Treasurer
of the United States. Checks payable to the order of others will not be accepted even though they are
endorsed to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York or to the Treasurer of the United States.
If payment for more than one issue is made by charge to a reserve or nonmember clearing account
or by check, it is desirable that a separate authorization to charge such account or a separate check be
submitted for each issue.

Calculation and payment of accrued interest
The 2 y 2 % Treasury Bonds of 1966-71, the 2 % Treasury Bonds of 1952-54, the 1 % % Treasury Notes
of Series C-1947, and the % % Treasury Certificates of Indebtedness of Series H-1945 will be sold at par
plus accrued interest from December 1 to the date payment is received ~by the Federal Reserve Bank, except
that accrued interest is waived on $500 and $1,000 subscriptions to the 2 y 2 % Treasury Bonds of 1966-71
and the 2% Treasury Bonds of 1952-54. One day's accrued interest per $1,000 on each of the issues is
as follows:

The date on which payment is received by the Federal Reserve Bank will depend upon the method by
which payment for the subscription is made by the banking institution, that is:
If payment is made by credit to a War Loan Deposit Account, payment is considered received on
the date the account is credited; and accrued interest should be paid to that date.
If payment is made by charge to a reserve account or nonmember clearing account maintained with
 4
Page


the Federal Reserve Bank, payment is considered received on the date the authorization to charge
the account is received by the Federal Reserve Bank; and accrued interest should be paid to that date.
If payment is made by check drawn on the Federal Reserve Bank, accrued interest should be
paid to the date such check is received by the Federal Reserve Bank.
If payment is made by check drawn on a bank other than the Federal Reserve Bank, accrued
interest should be paid to the date on which funds in payment of such check will be available to the
Federal Reserve Bank in the normal course of collection.
Although a savings bank may submit subscriptions for account of itself and its customers directly to
the Federal Reserve Bank, a savings bank may minimize the amount of accrued interest on such subscriptions by entering them through its correspondent bank and making arrangements for the correspondent to
pay by credit to its War Loan Deposit Account.
No accrued interest is payable on subscriptions for Savings Bonds of Series E, F or G or Treasury
Savings Notes of Series C. Where subscriptions for such securities are submitted to the Federal Reserve
Bank at the end of the month, it is important that the following instructions be observed in order to assure
the issuance of the securities dated as of the first day of that month:
If payment is made by credit to a War Loan Deposit Account, the credit should be entered not
later than the last business day of the month, and the subscription form and advice of such credit
should be mailed to the Federal Reserve Bank on the day of entry.
If payment is made by charge to a reserve account or nonmember clearing account maintained
with the Federal Reserve Bank, the subscription form and authorization to make such charge should
be received by the Federal Reserve Bank not later than the last business day of the month.
If payment for Savings Bonds is made by check, the subscription form and check should be
received by the Federal Reserve Bank not later than the last business day of the month.
If payment for Treasury Savings Notes is made by check, the subscription form and the check
should be received by the Federal Reserve Bank in sufficient time so that the proceeds of collection of the cheek will be available to the Federal Reserve Bank in finally collected funds not later than
the last business day of the month.
Deferred payment of certain subscriptions
Payment for the 2 y 2 % Treasury Bonds of 1966-71 and the 2% Treasury Bonds of 1952-54 subscribed
for by a life insurance company, savings institution, State, municipality, political subdivision or
similar public corporation, or agency thereof, may be made, in whole or in part, at par and accrued
interest, at any time or times, with payment to be completed not later than February 28, 1945. If payment
is to be deferred, the subscription for the bonds should be submitted on the regular subscription form which
should be modified by striking out the sections which commence with the words ' 1 Classification of subscriptions f o r computation of interest accrual" and " P a y m e n t in full for such securities is made as indicated
below". The subscription form so modified should be accompanied in each case by a letter from the subscriber signed by a duly authorized officer stating that in consideration of the acceptance of such subscription by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York the subscriber agrees to make payment in full on or before
February 28, 1945, at par and accrued interest from December 1,1944, to the date or dates of payment, for
the bonds allotted on the subscription.
The subscription form and letter may be forwarded through a banking institution or sent directly to
the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Each payment should include interest on the principal amount
covered by the payment to the date on which payment is received by the Federal Reserve Bank. Each
payment should be clearly identified with the related subscription, and if such payment is to be made by a
banking institution by credit to its War Loan Deposit Account, the institution should furnish the Federal
Reserve Bank at that time with a letter advising it of the date and amount of such credit. If payment is
made in more than one instalment, the subscriber will have the option (a) of taking delivery in the normal
course, following each instalment payment, of bonds of a par amount equal to the principal amount covered by such payment, or (b) of taking the receipt of the Federal Reserve Bank for the amount of each
instalment payment and deferring delivery of the bonds until the final payment is made. In the absence
of advice to the contrary, it will be assumed that the subscriber has elected the second alternative.
Registration of securities
In all cases, the registration should express the true ownership of the security, that is, full legal title
with complete power of disposition; registration is not permitted in the name of an agent, nominee or
attorney-in-fact.



Page 5

The registration of securities in the name of a woman should include the prefix Miss or Mrs., and the
Christian name of a married woman should be given, e.g. "Mrs. Mary B. D o e " , not "Mrs. John A. D o e " .
The regulations regarding the registration of United States Savings Bonds differ from those regarding the registration of other Government securities.
United States Savings Bonds of Series E, F and G are not transferable and are issued in registered form
only. The permissible forms of registration for each series are set forth in detail in Subpart B of Treasury
Department Circular No. 530, Fifth Revision, as amended, which appears on pages 22 and 23 of this
circular.
The 2^/2% Treasury Bonds of 1966-71 and the 2% Treasury Bonds of 1952-54 are issued in either
registered or coupon form. Such bonds may be registered in the name o f —
one individual, e.g. "Mrs. Mary B. D o e " ;
two individuals as coowners without right of survivorship, e.g. " J o h n A. Doe or Mrs. Mary B. Doe,
or either of t h e m " ;
two individuals as joint owners with right of survivorship, e.g. " J o h n A. Doe and Mrs. Mary B. Doe,
or the survivor";
a corporation, e.g. "Smith and Jones, Inc., a corporation";
a partnership, e.g. "Smith & Doe, a partnership";
an unincorporated association, lodge, society, or similar body, e.g. " T h e Lotus Club, an unincorporated
association";
a fiduciary, e.g. " J o h n A. Smith, trustee under will of John B. Doe, deceased";
a custodian of public funds, e.g. "Treasurer, City of Buffalo, New Y o r k " .
In all cases, the complete post-office address (including the postal unit number, if any) of the registered
owner should be given in order to assure the proper mailing of interest checks.
The P-/^fo Treasury Notes of Series C-1947 and the 7/8% Treasury Certificates of Indebtedness
Series H-1945 are issued in bearer form only.

of

Treasury Savings Notes, Series C, are not transferable and are inscribed in the name of a single owner.
Notes may be inscribed in the name of an individual, corporation, partnership, unincorporated association
or society, fiduciary, town, city, county or other governmental body. Notes which the purchaser expects to
use in making payment of Federal estate, income or gift taxes should be inscribed in the exact form used by
the purchaser in making Federal tax returns. Where two individuals make a joint tax return, the notes
should be inscribed in the name of one of them. Notes inscribed in the name of a partnership or other
entity, which is not a Federal taxpayer, are not acceptable in payment of taxes.
If questions arise concerning forms of registration not specifically covered by this summary or by the
following Treasury circulars, it is suggested that they be referred directly to the Federal Reserve Bank.
Purchase of securities for resale
It is the Treasury's aim to obtain during the drive the maximum investment of funds of individuals
and other nonbank investors, and to avoid unnecessary redistribution of securities in the Government
security market following the close of the drive. Persons other than security dealers and brokers should
not enter subscriptions for such securities with the intention of selling them during the period immediately
following the close of the drive. As stated on page 7, banking institutions are requested to take steps to
help prevent subscriptions being submitted for the purpose of acquiring securities for resale shortly after
the drive.
Subscriptions by security dealers and brokers
Subscriptions by dealers and brokers in securities are to be limited to an amount not in excess of (a)
50 per cent of their net worth, or (b) the amount of securities included in the Fifth War Loan Drive sold by
them directly to customers other than commercial banks and dealers and brokers during the first thirty days
following the close of the Fifth War Loan Drive, whichever is greater. Generally speaking, the volume of
purchases for subsequent resale to customers should be small regardless of the size of the investment firm,
as most customers will have ample opportunity to subscribe during the drive. Dealers and brokers are
requested to discourage subscriptions by their customers for the purpose of resale in the market.
Loans to purchase securities
In order to help in achieving the Treasury's objective of selling as many securities as possible to investors
other than commercial banks, all banking institutions have been requested by the Treasury to decline to
make speculative loans for the purchase of Government securities. In particular, commercial banks have
Page
 6


been requested not to make loans for the purpose of acquiring drive securities later for their account. On
the other hand, the Treasury favors banks making loans to facilitate permanent investment in Government securities if such loans are made in accord with the joint statement issued by the National and State
bank supervisory authorities in November 1942, which reads in part as follows:
' ' In connection with Government financing, individual subscribers relying upon anticipated income
may wish to augment their subscriptions by temporary borrowings from banks. Such loans will not be
subject to criticism but should be on a short term or amortization basis fully repayable within
periods not exceeding six months."
The Treasury is requesting each banking institution to examine subscriptions for the four marketable issues placed through it to see if the amounts of the subscriptions are in excess of the ability of
the subscribers to pay. If, in the opinion of the banking institution, any such subscription is in excess of
the ability of the subscriber to pay or appears to have been submitted for the purpose of acquiring the
securities for resale shortly after the drive, the banking institution should write the Federal Reserve Bank
of New York stating the circumstances and all available information. The subscription should not be entered
with the Federal Reserve Bank until instructions have been received from it.

Limitations on amount of purchases
The limitations affecting subscriptions by commercial banking institutions and security dealers and
brokers for their own account are set forth on pages 2 and 6, respectively. Except as stated under the three
preceding headings, there is no limitation on the amount of subscriptions by any other eligible investor for
the 2i/ 2 % Treasury Bonds of 1966-71, the 2% Treasury Bonds of 1952-54, the 1 ^ % Treasury Notes of
Series C-1947, the % % Treasury Certificates of Indebtedness of Series H-1945, or the Treasury Savings
Notes, Series C.
In the case of War Savings Bonds of Series E, the amount of bonds of such series issued during any
one calendar year (January 1—December 31) that may be held by any one person at any one time is
limited to $5,000 (maturity value). Additional holdings are permitted, however, in certain circumstances
where bonds are registered in coownership form. In the case of Series E bonds so registered, no excess
exists if in a particular group of coowners the holdings are such that the entire amount held can be allocated among the several coowners without apportioning an aggregate amount in excess of $5,000 (maturity
value) to any one person, including any amount chargeable to that person individually. For example, if
a married man with two children has already purchased in 1944 $5,000 maturity value of Series E bonds
registered in his own name, and his wife and children are not named as the registered owners or coowners of
any Series E bonds issued in 1944, he may purchase an additional $15,000 maturity value of such bonds
registered as follows: $5,000 in his name with his wife as coowner, $5,000 in his name with one child as
coowner, and $5,000 in his name with the other child as coowner. In such circumstances, the man as the
sole owner of $5,000 maturity value and as a coowner of $15,000 maturity value of bonds would be entitled
under the regulations to redeem all or part of such bonds without obtaining the signature of any of the
other coowners.
The amount of Savings Bonds of either Series F or Series G, or of the combined aggregate of both,
issued during any one calendar year (January 1—December 31) that may be held by any one person,
whether registered in his name individually or as a coowner, at any one time is $100,000 (issue price).
Subscriptions to be entered where funds are located
The respective State quotas making up the 14 billion dollar goal for nonbanking subscriptions in the
Sixth War Loan Drive are based in large measure upon the location of bank deposits. For this reason, and
to avoid disturbances to bank reserve positions which might otherwise occur through unnecessary shifts of
deposit balances from one locality to another, or from one institution to another, subscribers to Government
securities should enter their subscriptions through the banks where the funds to be used in payment are
located. A transfer of funds for the purpose of entering a subscription elsewhere not only constitutes a
possible disturbance to bank reserve positions but customarily involves substantial and unnecessary work.
Such a transfer serves no proper purpose which cannot be accomplished by a statistical allocation of credit
for the sale. In order to make transfers of funds unnecessary, the Treasury has established the procedure
described below under which credit for sales may be allocated to other localities upon appropriate request
by the purchasers.
Reporting of sales and geographical distribution of credits therefor
Reports of sales of securities during the drive, and the distribution and allocation of geographical
credits in respect of such sales, will be handled as follows:



Page 7

A.

Reports of Sales. The Federal Reserve Bank of New York will report each day to the War
Finance Committees of the States in the Second Federal Reserve District sales classified by
counties according to the following investor groups: (1) individuals, partnerships and personal
trusts; (2) savings banks; (3) insurance companies; (4) dealers and brokers; (5) Federal agencies and trust funds; (6) State and local governments, including local housing agencies; (7)
building and loan and savings and loan associations; (8) all other investors, including corporations not falling in the foregoing groups, charitable institutions, unions, fraternal benefit associations, national farm loan associations, etc. Any questions regarding local quotas or sales credits,
including credits expected to be allocated to a particular cminty, should be referred to the appropriate War Finance Committee.

B.

Series E War Savings Bonds. Credit for sales of Series E War Savings Bonds will be given to the
county in which the issuing agent is located, except that sales of such bonds issued directly by
the Federal Reserve Banks and the office of the Treasurer of the United States will be credited
to the addresses of the registered owners. No allocation of credit may be made in respect of a
sale of a Series E War Savings Bond.

C.

All Other Issues. In the absence of a specific request for the allocation of geographical credit
elsewhere, credits for sales of all issues other than Series E War Savings Bonds will be given to
the counties indicated by the addresses of the owners as shown on the subscription forms received
by the Federal Reserve Bank, except that credits for subscriptions to marketable issues and savings notes entered by New York City banks for the account of investors in Group 8, referred to
in paragraph A above, will be given to the counties in which such subscriptions are entered.

D.

Allocation of Geographical Credit. If a purchaser (other than an insurance company or a commercial bank) desires that credit for the sale of any security (other than a Series E War Savings Bond) be allocated to a county or counties other than the county to which credit would be
given under the provisions of the preceding paragraph, such allocation may be made provided
the request for such allocation is made on Form RA and such form accompanies the related subscription when filed with the Federal Reserve Bank. Form RA should be prepared in quadruplicate.
The first three copies should be transmitted to the Federal Reserve Bank, stapled or otherwise
firmly attached to the related subscription form, and the fourth retained by the subscribing bank
as its record. Where more than two separate allocations are requested in connection with a single
subscription, additional pages of coupons, designated Form RA-1, will be available. Copies of
Form R A have been furnished to all banking institutions in the Second Federal Reserve District,
and additional copies will be supplied to any interested person in the Second Federal Reserve District upon request to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. A request for allocation of credit
to a county outside the Second Federal Reserve District will be transmitted through the Federal
Reserve System to the Chairman of the War Finance Committee in the State involved.

E.

Allocation to Several Communities in Single County. A purchaser wishing to distribute credit
among several communities within a single county should arrange with the Chairman of the War
Finance Committee in such county for the distribution desired, since a single credit for the combined total will be given to the county in the sales report made by the Federal Reserve Bank.

F.

Credit for Sales to Insurance Companies and Commercial Banks. No allocation may be made in
respect of any sale to an insurance company; such a sale will be credited to the county in which the
head office of the company is situated. Since subscriptions by commercial banks for their own
account are not considered part of the drive and will not be applied against any quota, no geographical credit will be given for such subscriptions and no allocations may be made.

Department Circular No. 653
Second Revision

TREASURY

I.

DEPARTMENT,

OFFICE OF THE SECRETARY,

Fiscal Service
Bureau of the Public Debt

Washington, August 31, 1943.

OFFERING OF U N I T E D STATES SAVINGS BONDS OF SERIES E

1. The Secretary of the Treasury, pursuant to the authority of the Second Liberty Bond Act, as amended, offers
for sale, to the people of the United States, United States Savings Bonds of Series E, currently designated War
Savings Bonds, -which may hereinafter be referred to as bonds of Series E, and their sale will continue until terminated by the Secretary of the Treasury. Bonds of a new design, without change in terms, will be provided for issue
hereunder in regular course without further notice as stocks of the prior bonds of Series E become exhausted.
2. United States Savings Bonds of Series E include all bonds issued as Defense Savings Bonds under this circular
as originally published, and all those issued as War Savings Bonds under this circular as previously or as now revised.
As their terms are identical, no distinction is to be made between any bonds of Series E so issued.

II.

DESCRIPTION A N D TERMS OF BONDS

1. Bonds of Series E will be issued only in registered form, in denominations of $25, $50, $100, $500, and $1,000
(maturity values), at prices hereinafter set forth. Each bond will bear the facsimile signature of the Secretary of
the Treasury, and will bear an imprint (in red) of the Seal of the Treasury. At the time of issue, on the face of each
bond the issuing agent will inscribe the name and address of the owner, and the name of the coowner or beneficiary,
if any, will enter the issue date (which is the first day of the month in which payment of the issue price is received
by the Treasury or an authorized issuing agent), and will imprint his dating stamp (to show date the bond is actually
inscribed). Bonds of Series E shall be valid only if duly inscribed and dated, as above provided, and delivered by the
Treasury or an authorized issuing agent following receipt of payment therefor.
2. The bonds will, in each instance, be dated as of the first day of the month in which payment of the issue price
is received by an agent authorized to issue the bonds, whieh date is hereinafter referred to as the issue date; the bonds
will mature and be payable at face value 10 years from such issue date. The issue date is the basis for determining
the redemption or maturity period of the bond, and the date appearing in the issuing agent's stamp should not be
confused therewith. The bonds may not be called for redemption by the Secretary of the Treasury prior to
maturity, but they may be redeemed prior to maturity, after 60 days from the issue date, at the owner's option, at
fixed redemption values. No interest as such will be paid on the bonds, but they will increase in redemption value
at the end of the first year from issue date, and at the end of each successive half-year period thereafter until
their maturity, when the face amount becomes payable. The increment in value will be payable only upon redemption of the bonds. A table of redemption values appears on each bond. The purchase price of bonds of Series
E has been fixed so as to afford an investment yield of about 2.9 percent per annum compounded semiannually if
the bonds are held to maturity; if the owner exercises his option to redeem a bond prior to maturity the investment yield will be less. The table at the end of this circular shows: (1) How bonds of Series E, by denominations, increase in redemption value during the successive half-year periods following issue; (2) the approximate
investment yield on the issue price from issue date to the beginning of each half-year period; and (3) the approximate investment yield on the current redemption value from the beginning of each half-year period to maturity at the
end of the 10-year period.
3. Bonds of Series E will not be transferable, and will be payable only to the owner named thereon, except in
case of death or disability of the owner or as otherwise specifically provided in the regulations governing savings
bonds, and in any event only in accordance with said regulations. Accordingly, after they are duly issued they may
not be sold, discounted, hypothecated as collateral for a loan or the performance of a service, or disposed of in any
manner other than as provided in the regulations governing savings bonds, and, except as provided in said regulations,
the Treasury Department will recognize only the inscribed owner, during his lifetime, and thereafter his estate or heirs.
4. TAXATION.—For the purpose of determining taxes and tax exemptions, the increment in value represented by
the difference between the price paid for bonds of Series E (which are issued on a discount basis), and the redemption
value received therefor (whether at or before maturity) shall be considered as interest, and such interest is not
exempt from income or profits taxes now or hereafter imposed by the United States.1 The bonds shall be subject to
estate, inheritance, gift, or other excise taxes, whether Federal or State, but shall be exempt from all taxation now
or hereafter imposed on the principal or interest thereof by any State, or any of the possessions of the United States,
or by any local taxing authority.
1 For information concerning the taxable and exempt status under Federal tax laws of the interest (increment in value) on United States
Savings Bonds issued on a discount basis (including bonds of Series E ) , and alternate methods of reporting such interest, see Internal Revenue
Mimeograph, Coll. No. 5299, R. A. No. 1177, dated December 17, 1941. For credits on account of Victory Tax, see Internal Revenue Regulations
103. Sees. 19.453 and 19.454, as amended by Treasury Decision 5249.

1. The Secretary of the Treasury, pursuant to the authority of the Second Liberty Bond Act, as
amended, offers for sale, to the people of the United States, through the Federal Reserve Banks,
United States Savings Bonds of Series F and Series G, which may hereinafter be referred to as bonds
of Series F and Series G. Bonds of a new design, without change in terms, will be provided for issue
hereunder in regular course without further notice as stocks of the prior bonds of Series F and Series
G become exhausted. The sale of bonds of Series F and Series G will continue until terminated by the
Secretary of the Treasury.
2. United States Savings Bonds of Series F and Series G include bonds of any designation
issued under this circular as originally published and amended, and those issued under this circular
as previously or as now revised. As their terms are identical, no distinction is to be made between
any bonds of Series F or Series G so issued.

II.

D E S C R I P T I O N

T E R M S

B O N D S

1. Bonds of Series F and Series G will be issued only in registered form, in denominations of
$25 (for Series F only), $100, $500, $1,000, $5,000 and $10,000 (maturity values), at prices hereinafter set forth. Each bond will bear the facsimile signature of the Secretary of the Treasury, and
will bear an imprint in color (brown for Series F and blue for Series G) of the Seal of the Treasury.
At the time of issue, on the face of each bond, the issuing agent will inscribe the name and address of
the owner and the name of the coowner or beneficiary, if any, will enter the issue date (which is the
first day of the month in which payment of the issue price is received by the Treasury or an authorized
issuing agent), and will imprint his dating stamp (to show the date the bond is actually inscribed).
Bonds of Series F and Series G shall be valid only if duly inscribed and dated, as above provided, and
delivered by an authorized agent following receipt of payment therefor.
2. The bonds of each series will, in each instance, be dated as of the first day of the month in
which payment of the issue price is received by an agent authorized to issue the bonds, which date
is herein referred to as the issue date; the bonds will mature and be payable at face value 12 years
from such issue date. The issue date is the basis for determining the redemption or maturity period
of the bond, and the date appearing in the issuing agent's stamp should not be confused therewith.
The bonds of either series may not be called for redemption by the Secretary of the Treasury prior
to maturity, but they may be redeemed prior to maturity, after 6 months from the issue date, at
the owner's option, at fixed redemption values.
3. Borids of Series F will be issued on a discount basis at 74 percent of their maturity value. No
interest as such will be paid on the bonds, but they will increase in redemption value at the end of the
first year from issue date, and at the end of each successive half-year period thereafter until their
maturity, when the face amount becomes payable. The increment in value will be payable only upon
redemption of the bonds. A table of redemption values appears on each bond. The purchase price
of bonds of Series F has been fixed so as to afford an investment yield of about 2.53 percent per
annum compounded semiannually if the bonds are held to maturity; if the owner exercises his option
to redeem a bond prior to maturity the investment yield will be less.



Page 13

4. Bonds of Series G will be issued at par, and will bear interest at the rate of 2y 2 percent per
annum, payable semiannually from issue date. Interest will be paid by check drawn to the order of
the registered owner. Interest will cease at maturity, or, in case of redemption before maturity, at
the end of the interest period next preceding the date of redemption. A table of redemption values
appears on each bond, and the difference between the face amount of the bond and the redemption
value fixed for any period represents an adjustment (or refund) of interest. Accordingly, if the
owner exercises his option to redeem a bond prior to maturity, the investment yield will be less than
the interest rate on the bond. Bonds of Series G may be redeemed at par, in whole or in part, (1)
upon the death of the owner, or a coowner, if a natural person, or (2) as to bonds held by a trustee
or other fiduciary, upon the death of any person which results in termination of the trust. If the
trust is terminated only in part, redemption at par will be made only to the extent of the pro rata
portion of the trust so terminated, to the next lower multiple of $100. In any case request for
redemption at par must be received by the Treasury Department, Division of Loans and Currency,
Merchandise Mart, Chicago 54, Illinois, or by a Federal Reserve Bank or Branch within 4 months
after the date of death and in accordance with the regulations governing savings bonds.
5. Tables at the end of this circular show separately for bonds of Series F and those of Series G :
(1) The redemption values, by denominations, during the successive half-year periods following
issue, (2) the approximate investment yield on the issue price from issue date to the beginning of
each half-year period, and (3) the approximate investment yield on the current redemption value
from the beginning of each half-year period to maturity at the end of the 12-year period.
6. Bonds of Series F and Series G will not be transferable, and will be payable only to the owner
named thereon, except in case of death or disability of the owner or as otherwise specifically provided
in the regulations governing savings bonds, and in any event only in accordance with said regulations. Accordingly they may not be sold, discounted, hypothecated as collateral for a loan or the performance of a service, or disposed of in any manner other than as provided in the regulations governing savings bonds, and, except as provided in said regulations, the Treasury Department will
recognize only the inscribed owner, during his lifetime and competency, and thereafter his estate or
heirs.
7. Taxation.—For
the purpose of determining taxes and tax exemptions, the increment in
value represented by the difference between the price paid for bonds of Series F (which are issued
on a discount basis), and the redemption value received therefor (whether at or before maturity)
shall be considered as interest, and that interest and interest on bonds of Series G, are not exempt
from income or profits taxes now or hereafter imposed by the United States.1 The bonds shall be
subject to estate, inheritance, gift, or other excise taxes, whether Federal or State, but shall be
exempt from all taxation now or hereafter imposed on the principal or interest thereof by any State,
or any of the possessions of the United States, or by any local taxing authority.

T o OWNERS OF UNITED STATES SAVINGS BONDS, AND OTHEBS CONCERNED:

Department Circular No. 530, Fourth Bevision, Dated April 15, 1941 (6 F. B. 2191), as amended, is hereby further amended
and issued as a Fifth Be vision to read as follows:
The following regulations governing United States Savings Bonds are published for the information and guidance of all
concerned:
Subpart A-APPLICABILITY
Sec. 315.1. Applicability of regulations.—These regulations apply generally to all United States Savings Bonds of all series
of whatever designation and bearing any issue dates whatever except as otherwise specifically provided herein.

Subpart B—REGISTRATION
Sec. 315.2. General.—United States Savings Bonds will be issued only in registered form. The name and complete post office
address of the owner, as well as the name of the coowner or designated beneficiary, if any, and the date as of which the bond is issued
will be inscribed thereon at the time of issue by an authorized issuing agent.1 The form of registration used must express the
actual ownership of and interest in the bond and, except as otherwise specifically provided in these regulations, will be considered
as conclusive of such ownership and interest. The Treasury Department can recognize no notices of adverse claims to savings
bonds and will enter no stoppages or caveats against payment in accordance with the registration of the bonds. No designation of
an attorney, agent or other representative to request or receive payment on behalf of the owner, nor any restriction on the right
of such owner to receive payment of the bond, other than as provided in these regulations, may be made in the registration or
otherwise.

Sec. 315.3. Restrictions.—Only residents (whether individuals or others) of the United States (which for the purposes of
this section shall include the territories, insular possessions and Canal Zone), citizens of the United States temporarily residing
abroad, and nonresident aliens employed in the United States by the Federal Government or an agency thereof, may be named as
owners, coowners or designated beneficiaries on bonds originally issued on or after April 1, 1940, or on authorized reissues thereof:
"Provided, however, That on original issues of bonds, but not on reissues, a nonresident alien (not a citizen of an enemy nation)
may be named as coowner or designated beneficiary, and Provided further, That a nonresident alien, whether owner, coowner or
beneficiary succeeding to title on the death of the owner, or succeeding to title upon the death of a surviving coowner or beneficiary,
will be entitled only to request and receive payment either at or before maturity.*
Sec. 315.4. Authorised forms of registration, Series S.—Bonds of Series E may be registered only in the names of individuals
(natural persons), whether adults or minors, in their own right in one of the following forms of registration:
(a) ON* PERSON: In the name of one person, for example:
" J o h n A. Jones."
(b) Two PERSONS—COOWNERSHIP FORM: In the names of two (but not more than two) persons in the alternative as coowners, for example:
" J o h n A. Jones OB Mrs. Ella S. Jones."
No other form of registration establishing coownership is authorized.
(o) Two PERSONS—BENEFICIARY FORM: In the name of one (but not more than one) person, payable on death to one (but
not more than one) other person, for example:
" J o h n A. Jones, payable on death to Miss Mary E. Jones."
"Payable on death t o " may be abbreviated as " p . o. d . " The first person named is hereinafter referred to as the owner
or registered owner, and the second person named as the beneficiary or designated beneficiary. If it is desired that
a bond revert to the United States upon the death of the owner as a donation, it may be registered in the name of the
owner with the Treasurer of the United States named as beneficiary.
The full name of the owner and that of the coowner or beneficiary, if any, should be used and should be the name by which the
person is ordinarily known and under which he does business; if there are two given names the initial of one may be used, and
if a person is habitually known and does business by initial only of his given names, registration may be in such form. The name
may be preceded by any applicable title such as " D r . " , " B e v . " , etc., and in the case of women should be preceded by " M r s . " or
" M i s s " . A married woman's own name should be used, not that of her husband, for example, " M r s . Mary A. Jones", not " M r s .
Frank B. Jones". A minor, whether or not under legal guardianship, may be named as owner or coowner if the bonds are purchased as a gift to him and a minor may name a coowner or beneficiary on bonds purchased by him from his wages, earnings or
other money in his possession; but bonds purchased by a parent or guardian with funds already belonging to a minor must be
registered in the minor's name alone without the addition of a coowner or beneficiary. If a person named in the registration < f
>
the bond is under legal disability and a guardian or similar representative of his estate has been appointed by a court or is otherwise
legally qualified, the registration should indicate such facts by the addition of appropriate wordB, for example, " F r a n k Jones, a
minor under legal guardianship of Henry Smith". Bonds should not be registered in the name of a person under disability for
reasons other than minority unless a legal representative of his estate has been appointed.
Sec. 315.5. Authorized forms of registration, Series F and O.—Bonds of Series F or G may be registered in the names of individuals in their own right as set forth in Sec. 315.4 above, and subject to the same conditions as therein set forth. Bonds of these
1 The date of maturity is also inscribed on Savings Bonds of Series A Series B. and Series D.
2 Under the terms of Executive Order No. 8389, as amended, and the regulations issued thereunder, bonds may not be issued or paid to nationals
(aa defined in said Order) of blocked countries or to nationals of enemy countries, whether or not residing in the United States, unless such nationals
are generally or specially licensed under the terms of the Order.

two series may also be registered in the names of fiduciaries, corporations, associations and partnerships as owners (not as coowners
or beneficiaries), but may not be registered in the names of commercial banks, which are defined for this purpose as those accepting
demand deposits, except to such extent and under such conditions as may have been or may hereafter be provided specifically in
official circulars governing the offering of other Treasury securities.1 The following forms are authorized for such registration:
(a) Executors, administrators, guardians, etc.—In the name of one or more executors, administrators, guardians, conservators or other representatives of a single estate appointed by a court of competent jurisdiction or otherwise legally
qualified, all of whose names must be included in the registration, followed by adequate identifying reference to the
estate, for example:
" J o h n Smith, executor of the will (or administrator of the estate) of Henry J. Smith, deceased", or " W i l l i a m
C. Jones, guardian (or conservator, etc.) of the estate of James D. Brown, a minor (or an incompetent)".
If a guardian or other legal representative holds a common fund for the account of two or more estates or wards,
bonds should be registered in the name of the representative for each such estate or ward separately, even though
the representative was appointed in a single proceeding. A father or mother, as such, or as natural guardian, is not
considered a fiduciary for purposes of registration.
(b)

Trustees.—In the name or names of one or more trustees or other fiduciaries of a single duly constituted trust estate,
which will be considered as an entity, followed by adequate identifying reference to the trust instrument or other
authority creating the trust, for example:
" J o h n C. Brown and the First National Bank, trustees under the will of Henry C. Brown, deceased", or " T h e
Second National Bank, trustee under an agreement with George E. White, dated February 1, 1 9 3 5 " .
The names of all trustees must be given, unless they are too numerous, act as a board, or hold office for a limited period
of time. Registration may be in the title without the names of the trustees in the case of unincorporated lodges,
churches, societies or similar organizations, title to whose property is held by trustees, and in the case of public officers,
corporations or bodies acting as trustees under express authority of law, for example:
"Trustees of the First Baptist Church, Akron, Ohio, an unincorporated association", or "Treasurer of the
State of Nebraska, in trust for the policyholders of X Corporation, under Section
of Nebraska Statutes".
If the instrument or other authority creating the trust establishes a board of trustees acting as a board and not as
individuals, registration may be in the name of the board as such, for example:
" B o a r d of Trustees for the State Hospital for the Insane, under Section
of Nebraska Statutes".
Registration may not be made in the names of trustees under a statute, regulation, agreement, or other instrument purporting to create a trust where the funds used represent merely security for the performance of a duty or obligation.

(e)

Pension or retirement funds, etc.—Registration may be made in the names and title, or title alone, of trustees of a pension
or retirement fund or of an investment, savings, insurance, annuity, or similar fund or trust, but in all such cases the
fund will be regarded as an entity regardless of the number of beneficiaries or the manner in which their respective
interests are established or determined. Segregation of individual shares as a matter of bookkeeping or as a result
of individual agreements with beneficiaries will not operate to constitute separate trusts under these regulations.

(d) Private corporations and associations.—In the name of any private organization, whether incorporated or unincorporated
(except that bonds originally issued prior to January 1, 1944, may not be registered in the name of a commercial bank
as hereinbefore defined), using in each case the full legal name of the organization without mention of any officer or
member but making reference, if desired, to a particular bookkeeping account or fund (not a trust), as follows:
(1) A private corporation, followed by the words " a corporation," for example: " S m i t h Manufacturing Company,
a corporation";
(2) An unincorporated association, lodge, church or society, or similar body, followed by the words " a n unincorporated association," for example: " T h e Lotus Club, an unincorporated association." The term " a n unincorporated association" should not be used to describe a trust fund, a partnership or a business conducted
under a trade name;
( 3 ) A partnership, considered as an entity, followed by the words " a partnership," for example: " S m i t h and
Brown, a partnership."
(e)

States and public corporations.—In the full legal name or title of the owner or custodian of public funds, other than
trust funds, as follows:
( 1 ) Any sovereignty, as a State, or any public corporation, as a county, city, town or school district, for example: " S t a t e of M a i n e " , or " T o w n of Rye, New Y o r k " .
(2) Any board, commission or other public body duly constituted by law, for example: "Maryland State Highway
Commission'
(3) Any public officer designated by title only, for example: "Treasurer, City of Chicago".

Registration may include reference to a particular bookkeeping account, if desired.
( f ) Schools.—Registration is not authorized in the name of an unincorporated or public school, or class or activity tnereor.
Bonds held for the benefit of such school, class or activity should be registered in the name of a school principal or
other school officer, as trustee, by title only, for example: "Principal, Western High School, in trust f o r Class of 1940
Library F u n d " ; a written agreement of trust will not be required in cases of small amounts.
Sec. 315.6. Unauthorized registration.—Savings
bonds inscribed in a form not substantially in agreement with those authorized by this subpart will not be considered as validly issued and will be accepted only for a refund of the purchase price, except
in those cases in which reissue can be made under the provisions of these regulations.
Sec. 315.7. Forms of registration on reissue.—Bonds reissued under the provisions of these regulations may be reissued in
any form of registration permitted by the regulations in effect on the date of original issue.
1 Circulars heretofore issued making provisions for subscription to Series F and Series G bonds by commercial banks are Circulars Nos. 729 and 740,
offering 2Vi°/o Treasury Bonds of 1965-70; Circular No. 730, offering 2J4% Treasury Bonds of 1956-59; and Circular No. 741, offering 2 % Treasury
Bonds of 1952-54. Circular No. 755, offering 2 T r e a s u r y Bonds of 1966-71, and Circular No. 756, offering 2 % Treasury Bonds of 1952-54, will
also contain similar provisions.

Subpart C—LIMITATION ON TRANSFER
Sec. 315.8. Not transferable.—United States Savings Bonds are not transferable and are payable only to the owners named
thereon except in case of the disability or death of the owner or as otherwise specifically provided herein, but in any event only in
accordance with the provisions of these regulations. Accordingly, savings bonds may not be sold or hypothecated as collateral
for a loan and may not be used as security for the performance of an obligation except as expressly provided in these regulations.
Subpart D—LIMITATION ON HOLDINGS
Sec. 315.9. Amount which may be held.—As provided by section 22 of the Second Liberty Bond Act, as added February 4,
1935 (U. S. C. 1940 Ed., title 31, section 757c), and by regulations prescribed by the Secretary of the Treasury pursuant to the
authority of that section, as amended by the Public Debt Act of 1941, 55 Stat. 7, the amounts of savings bonds of the several series
issued during any one calendar year that may be held by any one person at any one time are limited as follows:
(a) Series A, B, C, and D—$10,000 (maturity value) of each series.
(ft) Series E—$5,000 (maturity value).
(c) Series F and G—$50,000 (issue price) for the calendar year 1941, and $100,000 (issue price) for each calendar year thereafter, of either series or of the combined aggregate of both, except that, in the case of commercial banks authorized to
acquire such bonds in accordance with Section 315.5, the limitation shall be such as may have been or may hereafter be
provided specifically in official circulars governing the offering of other Treasury securities, but in no event in excess of
$100,000 (issue price) for any calendar year.
The term " p e r s o n " shall mean any legal entity, including but not limited to, an individual, a partnership, a corporation (public or private), an unincorporated association or a trust estate.
Sec. 315.10. Calculation of amount.—In computing the amount of savings bonds of any one series issued during any one
calendar year held by any one person at any one time for the purpose of determining whether the amount is in excess of the
authorized limit as set forth in the next preceding section, the following rules shall govern:
(a) The holdings of each person, as defined in the next preceding section, individually and in a fiduciary capacity, shall be computed separately.
(b) In the case of bonds of Series A, B, C, D and E, the computation shall be based upon maturity values. In the case of
bonds of Series F and G, the computation shall be based upon issue prices.
(c) There must be taken into account: (1) all bonds originally issued to and registered in the name of that person alone;
(2) all bonds originally issued to and registered in the name of that person as a coowner or reissued to add his name as
coowner under the provisions of Section 315.29 ( o ) , or to designate him as coowner instead of as a beneficiary under
the provisions of Section 315.35 hereof: Provided, however, That with respect to bonds of Series E held in coownership form, the amount thereof may be applied to the holdings of either of the coowners, but will not be applied to both,
or the amount may be apportioned between them; and (3) all bonds acquired by him before March 1, 1941, upon the
death of another or the happening of any other event.
(d) There need not be taken into account: (1) bonds of which that person is merely the designated beneficiary; (2) those in
which his interest is only that of a beneficiary under a trust; or (3) those to which he is entitled as an heir or legatee
of the deceased registered owner, or by virtue of the termination of a trust or the happening of any other event unless
he became entitled to any such bonds in his own right before March 1, 1941.
(e) Nothing herein contained shall be construed to invalidate any holdings within or, except as provided in subsection ( c )
above, to validate any holdings in excess of, the authorized limits, as computed under the regulations in force at the
time such holdings were acquired.
Sec. 315.11. Disposition of excess.—If any person at any time acquires savings bonds issued during any one calendar year in
excess of the prescribed amount the excess must be immediately surrendered for refund of the purchase price.
Subpart E—LOST, STOLEN, MUTILATED, DEFACED OR DESTROYED BONDS
Sec. 315.12. Belief in case of loss, etc.—Under the provisions of the Government Losses in Shipment Act, relief either by the
issue of a substitute bond or by payment may be given in case of the loss, theft, destruction, mutilation or defacement of a savings
bond. In any such case immediate notice of the facts, together with a complete description of the bond (including series, year of
issue, serial number and name and address of the registered owner) should be given to the Treasury Department, Division of
Loans and Currency, Merchandise Mart, Chicago, Illinois. The Department will thereupon furnish an appropriate form and full
instructions for presenting the evidence necessary to secure relief under the law and the regulations as contained in Department
Circular No. 300, as amended. If such bond is subsequently recovered immediate notice of such recovery should be given to the
Division of Loans and Currency (at the address above), iD order that delay may be avoided upon a later presentation of the bond
for payment.
Subpart F—SAFEKEEPING FACILITIES
Sec. 315.13. Safekeeping of bonds.—Arrangements may be made for the safekeeping of a savings bond by the Treasury or
by a Federal Beserve Bank as fiscal agent of the United States. Application forms for safekeeping may be secured from postmasters, Federal Beserve Banks or the Treasury Department.
Subpart G—INTEREST
Sec. 315.14. General.—United States Savings Bonds are issued in two forms: (1) appreciation bonds, issued on a discount
basis and redeemable before maturity at increasing fixed redemption values; and (2) current income bonds, bearing interest
payable semiannually and redeemable before maturity at fixed redemption values less than the face amount of the bond. At
present Series G constitutes the only issue of current income savings bonds.
Sec. 315.15. Appreciation "bonds.—No interest as such is paid on savings bonds issued on a discount basis. Such bonds increase
in redemption value at the end of the first year from issue date and at the end of each successive half-year period thereafter until

Digitized forPage 24
FRASER


their maturity, -when the full amount becomes payable. The increment in vaiue represents interest and is payable only on redemption of the bonds, whether at or before maturity.
Sec. 315.16. Current income bonds.—Each such bond bears interest at a specified rate computed on the face amount of the
bond and payable semiannually, beginning six months from issue date. Except for redemption at par as provided in See.
315.18 ( c ) of Subpart H hereof, full advantage of interest at the rate specified may be secured only if the bonds are held to
maturity; if bonds are redeemed before maturity at current redemption values the difference between the face or full maturity
value and the current redemption value then payable in accordance with the table printed on the face of each bond, will represent an adjustment of interest for the rate appropriate for the shorter term, as set forth in the tables attached to the circular
announcing the issue of such bonds.
(а) Method of interest payments.—Interest due on current income bonds will be paid on each interest payment date by
check drawn to the order of the person or persons in whose name the bond is inscribed in the same form as their names
appear in the inscription on the bond, except that in the case of a bond registered in the form " A , " payable on death
to " B , " the check will be drawn to the order of A alone until the Treasury receives notice of A ' s death, from which
date the payment of interest will be suspended until such time as the bond is presented for payment or reissue. Interest
so withheld will be paid to the person entitled to payment of the bond, or in case of reissue to the person in whose name
the bond is reissued. Interest checks on bonds registered in the names of coowners will be mailed to the payee first
named at his address of record unless otherwise specifically directed.
( б ) Reissue during interest period.—If a current income bond is reissued for any reason between interest payment dates,
interest for the entire period will be paid, on the next interest payment date, by check drawn to the person in whose
name the bond is reissued. Ordinarily, if a bond is received for reissue less than a month prior to an interest payment
date, reissue cannot be effected until after such interest payment date.
(o) Change of address.—Prompt notice should be given to the Treasury Department, Division of Loans and Currency, Merchandise Mart, Chicago, Illinois, of any change of address by the owner of current income bonds. The notice should
refer to all bonds for which it is desired that the address be changed and should describe each bond by date, serial
number, series (including year of issue) and inscription appearing on the face of the bond.
(d) Termination of interest.—In case of redemption prior to maturity of current income bonds interest will cease on the last
day of the interest period next preceding the date of redemption. In case of partial redemption interest on the amount
redeemed will cease on the last day of the interest period next preceding the date of partial redemption, and interest
due thereafter will be paid only on the lower amount remaining after partial redemption.
(e) Consolidation of checks.—Whenever possible a single check will be issued on each payment date for interest on all current income bonds of a single series due to any owner on that date.
(/) Endorsement of checks.—Interest cheeks must be endorsed in accordance with the requirements of the Treasurer of the
United States, by the payees, either personally or by an attorney in fact, or in case of the death of the payee, by his
executor or administrator. Forms for the appointment of such attorney may be obtained from the Treasurer of the
United States or from any Federal Reserve Bank.

of the registered owner or other person entitled and mailed to him at the address given in his request for payment.
Sec. 315.24. Partial redemption.—A savings bond of any series in a denomination other than the lowest authorized for that

presentation and surrender of the bond in accordance with this subpart* In any such case, before the request for payment is
signed there should be added to the first sentence of the request the words " t o the extent of $
(maturity value), and
reissue of the remainder". Upon partial redemption of a savings bond the remainder will be reissued as of the original issue date

Payment at banks and trust companies: Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this subpart, the provisions of Treasury
Department Circulars Nos. 529, 554, 571, 596, and 653, all as supplemented, amended, or revised, and any instructions on the bonds,
an individual (natural person) whose name is inscribed on the face of a bond of Series A, B, C, D, or E, either as owner or
coowner in his own right, may present such bond (unless marked 'duplicate') to any incorporated bank or trust company which
has qualified as a paying agent under the provisions of Department Circular No. 750, dated September 5, 1944, and upon identification to the satisfaction of such paying agent and upon signing the request for payment, may receive immediate payment
for the bond at the current redemption value if presented prior to maturity, or at full maturity value if presented at or after
maturity. No charge will be made to the owner.
Payment at qualified banks or trust companies is confined to bonds of Series A, B, C, D, and E and will be made only to a
person named on the face of the bond as owner or coowner in his own right. Redemption of bonds of Series F and G, and partial
redemption of bonds of any series, may not be effected at incorporated banks or trust companies.
The provisions of this supplement do not supersede the procedure heretofore established for the redemption of savings bonds,
which will continue in full force and effect. However, they provide certain additional facilities for the redemption of savings
bonds, which may be availed of by owners concerned, under the conditions set forth herein and when offered by qualified banks
and trust companies.
Subpart I—MINORS AND PERSONS UNDER OTHER LEGAL DISABILITY
See. 315.25. Payment to legal guardians.—If the form of registration of a savings bond indicates that the owner is a minor
or has been judicially declared to be incompetent to manage his estate and that a guardian or similar representative has been
appointed for the estate of such minor or incompetent by a court having jurisdiction or is otherwise legally qualified, payment will
be made only to such guardian or similar legal representative. In such case the request for payment appearing on the back of the
bond should be signed by the guardian or other legal representative as such, for example, " J o h n A. Jones, guardian (committee) of
the estate of Henry W. Smith, a minor (an incompetent)." Unless the form of registration gives the name of the representative,
there must be submitted in support of the request a certificate or a certified copy of the letters of appointment from the court
making the appointment under the seal of the court, establishing that the appointment is in full force. Such certificate or certification (except in the case of corporate fiduciaries) should be dated not more than 6 months prior to the date of presentation of
the bond for payment. See Subpart M hereof for payment provisions applicable to bonds registered in the names of guardians
and similar fiduciaries. Where the form of registration does not indicate that the owner is a minor for whose estate a guardian
has been appointed, a notice that such guardian has been appointed will not be accepted by the Treasury for the purpose of preventing payment to the minor or his parent as provided in the two following sections.
Sec. 315.26. Payment to minors.—Unless the form of registration of a savings bond indicates that the owner is a minor for
whose estate a guardian or similar legal representative has been appointed or is otherwise duly qualified, payment will be made
direct to such minor, provided he is, at the time payment is requested, of sufficient competency and understanding to sign his name
to the request and to comprehend the nature of such act. In general the fact that the request for payment has been signed by a
minor and duly certified in accordance with Subpart H hereof will be accepted as sufficient proof of such competency and
understanding.
See. 315.27. Payment to parents of minors.—If the owner of a savings bond is a minor and the form of registration does not
indicate that a guardian or similar legal representative of the estate of such minor owner has been appointed or is otherwise
legally qualified, and if such minor owner is not of sufficient competency and understanding to execute the request for payment,
payment will be made to either parent of the minor with whom he resides, or if the minor does not reside with either parent, then
to the person who furnishes his chief support. The parent or such other person should sign the request for payment in his own
name, on behalf of the minor, in the form " M r s . Mary Jones, on behalf of John C. Jones," and should sign a certificate, in substantially the following form, which may be typed on the back of the bond:
" I certify that I am the
whom he resides. He is
sign this request."




(relationship) of John C. Jones and the person with
years of age and is not of sufficient competency and understanding to
Page 27

If a person other than a parent signs the request on behalf of the minor he should also certify that the minor does not reside with
either parent and that he furnishes his chief support. The Treasury Department may in any particular case require further
proof that the minor is not of sufficient competency and understanding to execute the request for payment and of the right of the
person executing the request to act on behalf of the minor.
See. 315.28. Payment to voluntary guardian of person under disability.—In any case where the adult owner of a bond has
been judicially declared incompetent or such incompetency, in the opinion of the Secretary of the Treasury, is otherwise established, and no duly qualified legal representative of his estate is acting, and the entire gross value of his personal e®t?.te
not
exceed $500, payment will be made to a member of his family or other person acting as voluntary guardian, upon presentation
of proof satisfactory to the Secretary of the Treasury that the proceeds of the bond are necessary for the purchase of necessaries
for the incompetent or for his wife or minor children or other persons dependent upon him for support. Applications for such
payment should be made only on appropriate forms, which may be obtained from the Treasury Department, Division of Loans
and Currency, Merchandise Mart, Chicago, Illinois, or any Federal Reserve Bank. The request for payment should not be
executed, nor the bond presented, until the application has been approved and instructions have been given by the Treasury
Department.
Subpart J—SINGLE NAME—ADDITION OF COOWNER, ETC.
See. 315.29. 1Reissue for certain purposes.—A savings bond of any series registered in the name of one person in his own
right, or to which one person is shown to be entitled in his own right under these regulations, may be reissued upon appropriate
request for the following purposes:
(a) Addition of coowner.—Reissue in the name of the owner with that of another natural person as coowner, provided that
bonds reissued in accordance with this subsection will be considered for the purposes of computation of holdings under
Subpart D of these regulations as originally issued in both names and no reissue will be effective which results in any
one person holding bonds in excess of the established limitation for the series to which the bonds belong. Requests for
reissue under this subsection should be made on Form PD 1762.
(ft) Addition of a beneficiary.—Reissue in the name of the owner with the name of another natural person as designated
beneficiary. Applications for reissue under the provisions of this subsection should be made on Form PD 1077.
(c) Reissue in living trust.—Reissue in the name of a trustee of a living trust created by the registered owner for his benefit
in whole or in part, during his lifetime whether or not containing an absolute power of revocation in the grantor; but
such reissue will be allowed only in the case of bonds of those series which may be originally issued in the name of a
trustee.
Sec. 315.30. Reissue upon request of a minor.—Reissues under the provisions of this Subpart will be made upon request of
owners, notwithstanding the fact that they are minors, provided they are of sufficient competency and understanding, and are under
no legal disability other than minority.
See. 315.31. Reissue only at Federal Reserve Banks and Treasury.—Reissues in accordance with the provisions of this Subpart may be made only at Federal Reserve Banks or at the Treasury Department. A coowner may be added only by reissue of the
bond. Federal Beserve Banks, however, may, in appropriate cases, add the name of a beneficiary to bonds already outstanding
without reissue, providing such addition is properly certified by the Federal Beserve Bank.
Subpart K—TWO NAMES—COOWNERSHIP FORM
Sec. 315.32. Payment or reissue.—A savings bond registered in the names of two persons as coowners in the form " J o h n A.
J ones OR Mrs. Mary C. Jones'' will be paid or reissued as follows:
(a) Payment during the lives of both coowners.—During the lives of both coowners the bond will be paid to either coowner upon
his separate request without requiring the signature of the other coowner; and upon payment to either coowner the other
person shall cease to have any interest in the bond. The bond will also be paid to both coowners upon their joint
request, in which ease payment will be made by cheek drawn to the order of both coowners in the form " J o h n A. Jones
and Mrs. Mary C. Jones", and the check must be endorsed by both payees.
(\b) Reissue during the lives of both coowners.—If one of the coowners is unmarried at the time of issue of the bond and subsequently marries, the bond may be reissued upon the request of both coowners to substitute the husband and wife as
coowners. Such request should be on a form provided for that purpose by any Federal Reserve Bank or Branch or by the
Treasury Department, Division of Loans and Currency, Merchandise Mart, Chicago 54, Illinois. No other reissue will be
permitted in any form during the lives of both coowners except as specifically provided in these regulations.
(c) Payment or reissue after the death of one coowner.—If either coowner dies without having presented and surrendered the
bond for payment to a Federal Reserve Bank or the Treasury Department, the surviving coowner will be recognized as
the sole and absolute owner of the bond, and payment will be made only to him: Provided, however, That if a coowner
dies after he has properly executed the request for payment and after the bond has actually been received by a Federal
Reserve Bank or the Treasury Department, payment of the bond, or check if one has been issued, will be made to his estate
(see Subpart P hereof). Upon proof of the death of one coowner and appropriate request by the surviving coowner
(unless a nonresident alien, in which case see Section 315.3) the bond will be reissued in the name of such survivor alone,
or in his name with another individual as coowner, or in his name payable on death to a designated beneficiary.
(d) Payment or reissue on death of both coowners in common disaster.—If both coowners die in a common disaster under such
conditions that it cannot be established, ejiher by presumption of law or otherwise, which coowner died first, the bond
will be considered as belonging to the estates of both coowners, and payment or reissue will be made accordingly.
(e) Payment or reissue after the death of the surviving coowner.—If a surviving coowner who became solely entitled to the
bond under the provisions of subsection (c) of this section dies without having submitted the bond for payment or reissue,
the bond will be paid or reissued as though it were registered in the name of such last deceased coowner alone. In this
case proof of the death of both coowners and of the order in which they died will be required.
Sec. 315.33. Place of reissue.—Reissues authorized in this Subpart will be made in accordance with the provisions of Subpart S hereof, but only at a Federal Reserve Bank or the Treasury Department, and applications for such reissues should be
made on forms provided for that purpose.
Page 28



Subpart L—TWO NAMES—BENEFICIARY FORM
Sec. 315.34. Payment to registered owner.—A bond registered in the name of one person payable on death to another, for
example, "Henry W. Ash, payable on death to John C. Black", will be paid to the registered owner during his lifetime upon his
properly executed request as though no beneficiary had been named in the registration.
Sec. 315.35. Reissue during the lifetime of a registered owner.—A bond registered in the name of one person payable on death
to another may be reissued, on the duly certified request of the registered owner, to name a beneficiary designated on the bond as
coowner subject to the same restrictions and conditions contained in Section 315.23 (a). A bond may also be reissued upon the
duly certified request of the registered owner, together with the duly certified consent of the designated beneficiary, to eliminate
such beneficiary or to substitute another person as beneficiary, or to name another person as coowner. If the beneficiary should
predecease the registered owner, upon proof of such death and upon request of the registered owner the bond may be reissued in his
name alone or in his name with another individual as coowner, or in his name payable on death to a designated beneficiary.
Requests should preferably be made upon the forms provided for such purpose.
Sec. 315.36. Payment or reissue to beneficiary.—If the registered owner dies without having presented and surrendered the
bond for payment or authorized reissue to a Federal Reserve Bank or the Treasury Department, and is survived by the beneficiary,
upon proof of such death and survivorship, the beneficiary will be recognized as the sole and absolute owner of the bond, and it will
be paid only to him at or before maturity, or (unless such beneficiary be a nonresident alien, in which case see Section 315.3) may
be reissued in his name alone, or otherwise reissued in accordance with Subpart J as though it were registered in his name alone:
Provided, however, That if the bond with a properly executed request by the registered owner for payment or authorized reissue has
actually been received by a Federal Reserve Bank or the Treasury Department, payment of the bond, or check, if one has been
issued, will be made to the estate of the deceased owner in accordance with Section 315.49.
See. 315.37. Payment or reissue after death of the surviving beneficiary.—After the death of a surviving beneficiary who
became entitled under the provisions of this Subpart, the bond will be paid or (except in the case of a nonresident alien) reissued
in accordance with Subpart J as though it were registered in the name of the surviving beneficiary alone. In this case proof of
the death of both the registered owner and the beneficiary and of the order in which they died will be required.
Sec. 315.38. Conditions of reissue.—Reissue under this Subpart will be made in accordance with Subpart S hereof, but only
at a Federal Reserve Bank or the Treasury Department and applications for such reissue should be made on forms provided for
that purpose.
Subpart M—FIDUCIARIES
See. 315.39. Payment to fiduciaries.—A savings bond registered in the name of, or otherwise belonging to, a fiduciary estate,
will be paid to the fiduciaries of such estate upon their request. The request for payment must be signed by all acting fiduciaries,
except for payment at maturity, when a request by any one or more acting fiduciaries will be accepted, but payment will be made
to all. If the bond is registered in the names of individual fiduciaries of the estate who are still acting, no further evidence of
authority will be required. In other cases the request for payment must be supported by evidence as specified below:
(a) Fiduciaries—By title only.—If the bond is registered in the titles without the names of the fiduciaries, satisfactory proof
of the incumbency of the fiduciaries must be furnished, except in the case of public officers.
(b)

Succeeding fiduciaries.—If the fiduciaries in whose names the bonds were registered have been succeeded by other fiduciaries, satisfactory proof of successorship must be furnished.

(c) Boards, committees, etc., as fiduciaries.—If the fiduciaries consist of a board, committee, commission, or public body, or
are otherwise empowered to act as a unit, a request for payment before maturity must be supported by a duly certified
copy of a resolution "of the board or other body authorizing such action, except that in the case of a public board or
commission a request signed in its name by a duly authorized officer thereof will ordinarily be accepted without further
proof of the officer's authority. In any case the request must be signed in the name of the board or other body by an
authorized officer or agent thereof.
(d) Corporate fiduciaries.—If a public or private corporation or a political body, such as a State or county, is acting as a
fiduciary, a request for payment must be signed in the name of the corporation or other body, in the fiduciary capacity
in which it is acting, by an authorized officer thereof.
(e)

Registration not disclosing trust.—If the form in which the bond is registered does not show that it belongs to a fiduciary estate or does not identify the estate to which it belongs, satisfactory proof of ownership must be furnished.

Sec. 315.40. Reissue in the name of a succeeding fiduciary.—If a person in whose name a savings bond is registered as a fiduciary has been succeeded as such fiduciary by another person, the bond will be reissued in the name of the succeeding fiduciary
upon appropriate request and satisfactory proof of successorship.
Sec. 315.41. Reissue in the name of, or payment to, the person entitled.—
(a) Distribution of trust estate in Icind.—A savings bond to which a beneficiary of a trust has become lawfully entitled, in
whole or in part, under the terms of the trust, will be reissued in his name to the extent of his interest, as a distribution in kind, upon the request of the trustee or trustees and their certification that such person is entitled and has
agreed to reissue in his name: Provided, That if a trustee himself is so entitled in his own right, his request for reissue
in his name must be supported by an order of court or other satisfactory proof that he is so entitled, unless a cofiduciary joins in the request: Provided further, That if the form in which the bond is registered does not show that it
belongs to a trust estate, the request for reissue must be supported by satisfactory proof of ownership.
(b) After termination of trust estate.—If the person who would be lawfully entitled to a savings bond upon the termination
of a trust does not desire to have such distribution to him in kind, as provided in the next preceding subsection, the
trustee or trustees should redeem the bond in accordance with the provisions of Sec. 315.39 hereof before the estate
is terminated. If, however, the estate is terminated without such payment or reissue having been made, the bond will
thereafter be paid to or reissued in the name of the person lawfully entitled upon his request and satisfactory proof of
ownership, supplemented, if there are two or more persons having any apparent interest in the bond, by an agreement
executed by all such persons.




Page 29

(c)

Upon termination of guardianship estate.—A savings bond registered in the name of a guardian or similar legal representative of the estate of a minor or incompetent, if the estate is terminated during the ward's lifetime, will be reissued
in the name of the former ward upon the representative's request and certification that the former ward is entitled and
has agreed to reissue in his name, or will be paid to or reissued in the name of the former ward upon his own request,
supported in either case by satisfactory proof that his disability has been removed. Certification by the representative that a former minor has attained his majority, or that the legal disability of a female ward has been removed by
marriage, if the State law so provides, will ordinarily be accepted as sufficient, but if the disability is removed by court
order a duly certified copy of the order will be necessary. Upon the death of the ward a bond registered in the name

personal estate, or upon compliance with the provisions of Subpart I hereof governing payment of savings bonds registered in the names of such persons.

owner's interest, or to the extent of the creditor's claim, whichever is smaller, through valid judicial proceedings: Provided, however, That no such proceedings will be recognized if they would give effect to an attempted voluntary transfer inter vivos of the
bond or would defeat or impair the rights of survivorship conferred by these regulations upon coowners and beneficiaries. Payment, or partial payment in an amount not in excess of that to which the creditor is entitled, will be made upon presentation and

only in authorized denominations. The Treasury can accept no notices of pending judicial proceedings and cannot undertake to
protect the interests of litigants who do not have possession of the bonds.
Sec. 315.53. Evidence necessary.—To establish the validity of judicial proceedings there must be submitted a certified copy
of the judgment or decree of court and of any necessary supplementary proceedings, as well as a certificate from the clerk of the

than the Secretary of the Treasury will be permitted. A savings bond may also be deposited as security with a Federal Reserve
Bank under the provisions of Department Circular No. 657 by an institution certified under that circular as an issuing agent for

OF

1. General.—Treasury Savings Notes, Series C, will in each instance be dated as of the first day
of the month in which payment, at par, is received and credited by an agent authorized to issue the
notes. They will mature three years from that date, and may not be called by the Secretary of the
Treasury for redemption before maturity. All notes issued during any one calendar year shall constitute a separate series indicated by the letter " C " followed by the year of maturity. At the time
of issue the authorized issuing agent will inscribe on the face of each note the name and address of
the owner, will enter the date as of which the note is issued and will imprint his dating stamp (with
current date). The notes will be issued in denominations of $100, $500, $1,000, $5,000, $10,000,
$100,000, $500,000 and $1,000,000. Exchange of authorized denominations from higher to lower,
but not from lower to higher, may be arranged at the office of the agent that issued the note.
2. Acceptance for Taxes or Cash Redemption.—If inscribed in the name of an individual, corporation, or other entity paying Federal estate, income or gift taxes, the notes will be receivable, subject to the provisions of Section IV of this circular, at par and accrued interest, in payment of such
Federal taxes assessed against the owner or his estate. If not presented in payment of taxes, or if
not inscribed in the name of a Federal taxpayer, and subject to the provisions of Section V of this
circular, the notes will be payable at maturity or, at the owner's option and request, they will be
redeemable before maturity, at par and accrued interest.

each month from the month of issue, on a graduated scale, as follows:

Twenty-fifth to Thirty-sixth months, inclusive.

$0.50 each month.

beyond its maturity. Interest will be paid only with the principal amount.

also be inscribed in the name of a town, city, county or State or other governmental body and in the
name of a partnership, but notes in the name of a partnership are not acceptable in payment of taxes,
since a partnership is not a Federal taxpaying entity. The notes will not be inscribed in the names
of two or more persons as joint owners or coowners; or in the name of a public officer, whether or
not named as trustee, where the notes would in effect be held as security.

II. DESCRIPTION OF BONDS
1. The bonds will be dated December 1, 1944, and will bear interest from that date at the rate

December 1,1954, be transferred to or be held by commercial banks, which are defined for this purpose
as banks accepting demand deposits; however, the bonds may be pledged as collateral for loans,
including loans by commercial banks, but any such bank acquiring such bonds before December 1,
1954, because of the failure of such loans to be paid at maturity will be required to dispose of them in
the same manner as they dispose of other assets not eligible to be owned by banks.
5. Any bonds issued hereunder which upon the death of the owner constitute part of his estate,
will be redeemed at the option of the duly constituted representatives of the deceased owner's estate, at
par and accrued interest to date of payment, 1 Provided:

(a) that the bonds were actually owned by the decedent at the time of his death; and
(b) that the Secretary of the Treasury be authorized to apply the entire proceeds of redemption
to the payment of Federal estate taxes.
Registered bonds submitted for redemption hereunder must be duly assigned to " T h e Secretary
of the Treasury for redemption, the proceeds to be paid to the Collector of Internal Revenue at
for credit on Federal estate taxes due from estate of
" Owing to the periodic closing of the transfer books
and the impossibility of stopping payment of interest to the registered owner during the closed period,
registered bonds received after the closing of the books for payment during such closed period will be
paid only at par with a deduction of interest from the date of payment to the next interest payment
date ; 2 bonds received during the closed period for payment at a date after the books reopen will be paid
at par plus accrued interest from the reopening of the books to the date of payment. In either case
checks for the full six months' interest due on the last day of the closed period will be forwarded to
the owner in due course. All bonds submitted must be accompanied by Form P D 1782,3 properly
completed, signed and sworn to, and by a certificate of the appointment of the personal representatives,
under seal of the court, dated not more than six months prior to the submission of the bonds, which
shall show that at the date thereof the appointment was still in force and effect. Upon payment of the
bonds appropriate memorandum receipt will be forwarded to the representatives, which will be followed
in due course by formal receipt from the Collector of Internal Revenue.
6. Except as provided in the preceding paragraphs, the bonds will be subject to the general regulations of the Treasury Department, now or hereafter prescribed, governing United States bonds.

District:

For your information in connection with the Sixth War Loan Drive, which starts November 20, 1944,
the following material is set forth in this circular:
Announcement by the Secretary of the Treasury, released for publication October 6, 1944.
Treasury Department Circular No. 755, dated November 20, 1944, with respect to an offering of 21/& Percent
Treasury Bonds of 1966-71.

Treasury Department Circular No. 758, dated November 20, 1944, with respect to an offering of 7/s Percent
Treasury Certificates of Indebtedness of Series H-1945.

Subscriptions to be entered where funds are located
The respective State quotas making up the 14 billion dollar goal for nonbanking subscriptions in the
Sixth War Loan Drive are based in large measure upon the location of bank deposits. For this reason, and
to avoid disturbances to bank reserve positions which might otherwise occur through unnecessary shifts of
deposit balances from one locality to another, or from one institution to another, subscribers to Government securities should enter their subscriptions through the banks where the funds to be used in payment
are located. A transfer of funds for the purpose of entering a subscription elsewhere not only constitutes
a possible disturbance to bank reserve positions but customarily involves substantial and unnecessary work.
Such a transfer serves no proper purpose which cannot be accomplished by a statistical allocation of credit
for the sale. In order to make transfers of funds unnecessary, the Treasury has established a procedure
under which credits for sales may be allocated to other localities upon appropriate request by the purchasers.
Full information regarding such procedure, and supplies of forms for use in requesting allocations of credits,
have been furnished to all banking institutions in the Second Federal Reserve District.
Submission of subscriptions
Subscriptions to any of such issues for account of customers may be submitted to us by banking institutions only. Accordingly, security dealers, brokers, savings and loan associations and others should enter
subscriptions for account of customers through banking institutions. Where, however, it is not feasible f o r
a subscription to be entered through a banking institution, it may be submitted by the purchaser directly
to us.
Subscriptions should be submitted only on the appropriate forms provided by us, as follows:

Application forms provided by the State War Finance Committees should not be forwarded to us.
Payment for securities and computation of accrued interest
Subscriptions must be accompanied by payment in full at par and accrued interest, if any, except
in those cases for which deferred payment is permitted as provided below. Each such issue will be sold at
par plus accrued interest from December 1 to the date payment is received by us, except that accrued interest
is waived on $500 and $1,000 subscriptions to the 21/£ Percent Treasury Bonds of 1966-71 and the 2 Percent
Treasury Bonds of 1952-54. One day's accrued interest per $1,000 on each of the issues is as follows:

In the case of a subscription submitted through a banking institution, the purchaser should consult
such institution regarding the amount of accrued interest payable. In the case of a subscription submitted
directly to us with a check in payment therefor, accrued interest should be paid to the date on which funds
in payment of the check will be available to us in the normal course of collection. Subscriptions will be
allotted in full.
Deferred payment of certain subscriptions
Payment for 2 y 2 % Treasury Bonds of 1966-71 and 2% Treasury Bonds of 1952-54 subscribed for by
a life insurance company, savings institution, State, municipality, political subdivision or similar public
corporation, or agency thereof, may be made, in whole or in part, at par and accrued interest, at any time
or times, with payment to be completed not later than February 28, 1945. If payment is to be deferred,
the subscription for the bonds should be submitted on the regular subscription form which should be modified by striking out the sections which commence with the words "Classification of subscriptions for computation of interest accrual" and "Payment in full for such securities is made as indicated below". The
subscription form so modified should be accompanied in each case by a letter from the subscriber signed
by a duly authorized officer stating that in consideration of the acceptance of such subscription by us the
subscriber agrees to make payment in full on or before February 28, 1945, at par and accrued interest
from December 1, 1944, to the date or dates of payment, for the bonds allotted on the subscription.
The subscription form and letter may be forwarded through a banking institution or sent directly to
us. Each payment should include interest on the principal amount covered by the payment to the date
on which payment is received by us. Each payment should be clearly identified with the related subscription. If payment is made in more than one instalment, the subscriber will have the option (a) of taking
delivery in the normal course, following each instalment payment, of bonds of a par amount equal to the
principal amount covered by such payment, or (b) of taking our receipt for the amount of each instalment
payment and deferring delivery of the bonds until the final payment is made. In the absence of advice
to the contrary, it will be assumed that the subscriber has elected the second alternative.
Purchase of securities for resale
It is the Treasury's aim to obtain during the drive the maximum investment of funds of individuals
and other nonbank investors, and to avoid unnecessary redistribution of securities in the Government
security market following the close of the drive. Persons other than security dealers and brokers should
not enter subscriptions for such securities with the intention of selling them during the period immediately
following the close of the drive.
Subscriptions by security dealers and brokers
Subscriptions by dealers and brokers in securities are to be limited to an amount not in excess of (a)
50 per cent of their net worth, or (b) the amount of securities included in the Fifth War Loan Drive sold
by them directly to customers other than commercial banks and dealers and brokers during the first thirty
days following the close of the Fifth War Loan Drive, whichever is greater. Generally speaking, the volume of purchases for subsequent resale to customers should be small regardless of the size of the investment
firm, as most customers will have ample opportunity to subscribe during the drive. Dealers and brokers are
requested to discourage subscriptions by their customers for the purpose of resale in the market.
Loans to purchase securities
In order to help in achieving the Treasury's objective to sell as many securities as possible to investors
other than commercial banks, all banking institutions have been requested by the Treasury to decline to
 2
Page


make speculative loans for the purchase of Government securities. On the other hand, the Treasury favors
bank loans to facilitate permanent investment in Government securities if such loans are made in accord
with the joint statement issued by the National and State bank supervisory authorities in November 1942,
which reads in part as follows:
" I n connection with Government financing, individual subscribers relying upon anticipated
income may wish to augment their subscriptions by temporary borrowings from banks. Such loans
will not be subject to criticism but should be on a short term or amortization basis fully repayable
within periods not exceeding six months."
Period during which subscription books will remain open
The books for receipt of subscriptions to each such issue will open on November 20, 1944. The Secretary of the Treasury has announced that the drive will run through December 16, 1944, but the right
is reserved to close the books as to any or all subscriptions at any time without notice.
Other issues offered during the drive

ANNOUNCEMENT BY THE SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY
Regarding the
SIXTH WAR LOAN

Released for publication October 6, 1944
Henry Morgenthau, Jr., Secretary of the Treasury, announced today the terms of the securities
to be sold in the Sixth W a r Loan which will start on November 20 and will run through December 16.
The goal will be $14,000,000,000, of which $5,000,000,000 is to come from sales to individuals and
$9,000,000,000 to other non-bank investors.
"Since January 1, 1944," the Secretary said, "the direct costs of the war have exceeded
$69,000,000,000. The critical phases of the war are still ahead of us, and for that reason we cannot
expect any material decline in expenditures during the next several months. The $14,000,000,000 is,
therefore, urgently needed."
The Secretary pointed out that the major emphasis throughout the entire period of the drive
will be placed on the quota of $5,000,000,000 for individuals.
During the period from November 20 to December 1, only sales to individuals will be reported
by the Treasury, although subscriptions will be received from all non-banking investors during the
entire period of the drive. The campaign to sell to individuals will be supplemented starting
December 1 with an intensive campaign to sell all other non-banking investors.
The Secretary said that subscriptions for Savings Bonds and Savings Notes processed through
the Federal Reserve Banks between November 1 and December 31 will be counted towards the
drive in order that the millions of persons employed in the nation's industrial corporations may be
permitted to participate in the drive through the purchase of bonds acquired by weekly or semimonthly deductions from their pay during this period.
The goal and the securities to be offered were determined by the Treasury after consultation
with a group of chairmen of the State W a r Finance Committees, officials of the Federal Reserve
System, a Committee of the American Bankers Association, and other investment authorities.
The securities, which will be sold under the direction of the State War Finance Committees,
are as follows:
Series E, F and G Savings Bonds
Series C Savings Notes
2 y 2 % Bonds of 1966-71
2 % Bonds of 1952-54
1 % % Notes of 1947
% % Certificates of Indebtedness.
The 2y2°/o Bonds to be offered in the drive will be dated December 1, 1944, due March 15, 1971,
callable March 15, 1966. The bonds will be issued in coupon or registered form at the option of the
buyers, in denominations from $500 to $1,000,000.
The 2 % Bonds will be dated December 1, 1944, due December 15, 1954, callable December 15,
1952, and will be issued in coupon or registered form at the option of the buyers, in denominations
of $500 to $1,000,000.
The
Notes will be dated December 1, 1944, due September 15, 1947, and will be issued in
denominations of $1,000 to $1,000,000 and in coupon form only.
The } i % Certificates of Indebtedness will be dated December 1, 1944, due December 1, 1945, and
will be issued in denominations of $1,000 to $1,000,000 and in coupon form only.

Page


The Treasury will request that there be no trading in the marketable securities and no purchases of such securities other than on direct subscription until after the closing of the drive.
The procedure for handling subscriptions of dealers and brokers will be similar to that prescribed
in the Fifth War Loan Drive.
T o avoid unnecessary transfers of funds from one locality to another, the Treasury again urges
that all subscriptions by corporations and firms be entered and paid for through the banking institutions where funds are located. This request is made to prevent disturbance to the money market
and the banking situation. The Treasury will undertake, as in the Fifth W a r Loan Drive, to see that
statistical credit is given to any locality for such subscriptions as the purchaser may request; except
that subscriptions from insurance companies will be credited to the State of the Home office as in
the past.
In order to help in achieving its objective of selling as many securities as possible outside of the
banking system, the Treasury requests the cooperation of all banking institutions in declining to
make speculative loans for the purchase of Government securities. The Treasury is in favor of the
banks making loans to facilitate permanent investment in Government securities provided such loans
are made in accord with the joint statement issued by the National and State Bank Supervisory
Authorities on November 23, 1942.* However, the Treasury requests the banks not to make loans
for the purpose of acquiring the drive securities later for their own account.
Concurrently with the drive, but not as a part of it, the holders of the Certificates maturing
December 1, 1944 will be offered on or about November 20th a 0.90% Treasury Note dated December
1, 1944 and maturing January 1, 1946, in exchange for such Certificates. Also the commercial bank
holders of the 4% Treasury Bonds of 1944-54 called for redemption on December 15, 1944 will be
offered on or about November 20 the 1 % % Note and the 2 % Bond offered in the drive, in
exchange for such bonds; all other holders will be offered the 1 % % Note, the 2% Bond and the
2 x /2% Bond. The exchanges for the 4 % bonds will be made as of December 15, 1944 in available denominations, and accrued interest will be charged from December 1 to December 15 on
the new securities.
Commercial banks, which are defined for the purpose as banks accepting demand deposits,
will not be permitted to own the 2y2°/o Bonds offered in the drive until December 1, 1954, nor to own
the 2 % Bonds (other than those acquired in exchange for the called 4 % Bonds) until December 18,
1944, except for a limited investment of time deposits in these issues under a formula to be prescribed in the official offering circulars.

* The joint statement referred to reads as follows:
The Comptroller of the Currency, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Board of Governors of the
Federal Reserve System, and the Executive Committee of the National Association of Supervisors of State Banks
make the following statement of their examination and supervisory policy with special reference to investments in
and loans upon Government securities.
1. There will be no deterrents in examination or supervisory policy to investments by banks in Government
securities of all types, except those securities made specifically ineligible for bank investment by the terms of
their issue.
2. In connection with Government financing, individual subscribers relying upon anticipated income may wish
to augment their subscriptions by temporary borrowings from banks. Such loans will not be subject to criticism
but should be on a short term or amortization basis fully repayable within periods not exceeding six months.
3. Banks will not be criticized for utilizing their idle funds as far as possible in making such investments and
loans and availing themselves of the privilege of temporarily borrowing from or selling Treasury bills to the
Federal Reserve Banks when necessary t« restore their required reserve positions.

INSTRUCTIONS

Complete information and permissible forms of registration will be
found in Treasury Department Circular No. 530, Fifth Revision, and amended.
Strict compliance with the terms of the circular will avoid delay in
issuing bonds.
For the general guidance of issuing agents accepting orders, United
States Savings Bonds of Series F may be registered as follows:
(1) In the names of natural persons (that is, individuals), in their own right, as
follows:
(a) In the name of one person;
(b) In the names of two (but not more than two) persons in the alternative as
coowners; or
(c) In the name of one person payable on death to one (but not more than one)
designated person.
(2) In the name of a private corporation followed by the words "a corporation", for
example: "Smith Manufacturing Co., a corporation." Bonds may not be registered in the name of a bank or trust company which accepts demand deposits
except when held by such bank or trust company in fiduciary capacity.
(3) In the name of an unincorporated association or other body followed by the
words "an unincorporated association," for example: "The Lotus Club, an unincorporated association." The term "an unincorporated association" should not
be used to describe a trust fund, a partnership or a business conducted under
a trade name.
(4) In the name of a partnership, considered as an entity, followed by the words
"a partnership", for example: "Smith Brown & Co., a partnership."
(5) In the name of any public officer designated by title only, for example:
"Treasurer, City of Chicago".
(6) In the name of one or more executors, administrators, guardians, committees,
conservators or other representatives of a single estate appointed by a court of
competent jurisdiction or otherwise legally qualified, all of whose names must
be included in the registration, followed by adequate identifying reference to
the estate, for example:
"John Smith, executor of the will (or administrator of the estate) of Henry
J. Smith, deceased", or "William C. Jones, guardian (or committee, etc.)
of the estate of James D. Brown, a minor (or an incompetent)".
A father or mother, as such, or as natural guardian, is not considered a
fiduciary for the purposes of registration.

Registration is restricted to residents of the Continental United States,
the Territories and Insular Possessions of the United States, the Canal Zone,
the Philippine Islands, or citizens of the United States temporarily residing
abroad; provided, however, that a non-resident alien (not a citizen of an
enemy nation) may be named as coowner or designated beneficiary, but will
be entitled only to request and receive payment either at or before maturity.
The full name of the owner and that of the coowner or beneficiary, if
any, should be used and should be the name by which the person is ordinarily
known and under which he does business; if there are two given names the
initial of one may be used, or if a person is habitually known and does
business by initial only of his given names, registration may be in such form.
In the case of women, the name must be preceded by "Miss" or "Mrs." and
a married woman's own given name should be used, not that of her husband,
for example, "Mrs. Mary A. Jones", not "Mrs. Frank B. Jones".
The form of registration used must express the actual ownership of an
interest in the bonds; they may not be registered in the name of an agent,
attorney-in-fact or nominee.
C A U T I O N : Ownership in Savings Bonds of Series F, either alone or in combination
with those of Series G, is limited to $100,000 (cost price) originally issued in any
one calendar
 year.

SIXTH WAR LOAN
Subscriptions By Dealers and Brokers
To All Dealers and Brokers in the
Second Federal Reserve District:

During- the Sixth War Loan Drive, wliich will start November 20 and will run through
December 16, 1944, every effort will be made to sell as many securities as possible to investors
other than commercial banks and to obtain the maximum investment of funds which are
currently available or shortly to become available to such investors. To help in achieving this
objective all banking institutions have been requested by the Treasury Department to take
appropriate steps to help prevent subscriptions being submitted for the purpose of acquiring
securities for resale shortly after the drive, and to decline to make loans to finance speculative
subscriptions or any other loans on Government securities which cannot be paid out of anticipated income within a period not exceeding six months.
Subscriptions by dealers and brokers in securities are to be limited to an amount not in
excess of (a) 50 per cent of their net worth, or (b) the amount of securities included in the Fifth
War Loan Drive sold by them directly to customers other than commercial banks and dealers
and brokers during the first thirty days following the close of the Fifth War Loan Drive, whichever is greater. Generally speaking, the volume of purchases for subsequent resale to customers
should be small regardless of the size of the investment firm, as most customers will have
ample opportunity to subscribe during the drive. In order that there can be no misunderstanding
as to the amount subscribed by a dealer or broker for his own account, subscriptions for account
of customers must not be entered in the name of the dealer or broker.
If you propose to enter subscriptions to any of the marketable issues offered during the
Sixth War Loan Drive, we shall appreciate your informing us of the amount of your net worth
or the amount of marketable securities included in the Fifth War Loan Drive which you sold to
your customers during the thirty day period following the close of that drive. For your convenience in furnishing this information, we are enclosing a form which should be filled in and
returned to us prior to entering a subscription.
In further support of the Treasury's program for the Sixth War Loan Drive, and in
order to avoid an unnecessary redistribution of securities in the Government security market
following the drive, the public has been requested to refrain from entering subscriptions if
subsequent prompt sale of the securities is intended. Dealers and brokers are requested to
cooperate with the Treasury in discouraging subscriptions for Government securities by their
customers for this purpose.
