They will be issued in bearer f o r m only, and in denominations of $1,000, $5,000, $10,000, $100,000, $500,000, and $1,000,000

war time, Monday, March 19, 1945.
Tenders will not be received at the Treasury Department, Washington.
Each tender
must be f o r an even multiple of $1,000, and the price offered must be expressed on the basis of 100, with not more than
three decimals, e. g., 99.925. Fractions may not be used. It is urged that tenders be made on the printed forms and forwarded
in the special envelopes which will be supplied by Federal Reserve Banks or Branches on application therefor.
Tenders will be received without deposit f r o m incorporated banks and trust companies and from responsible and
recognized dealers in investment securities.
Tenders f r o m others must be accompanied by payment of 2 percent of the
face amount of Treasury bills applied f o r , unless the tenders are accompanied by an express guaranty of payment by an
incorporated bank or trust company.
Immediately after the closing hour, tenders will be opened at the Federal Reserve Banks and Branches, following which
public announcement will be made by the Secretary of the Treasury of the amount and price range of accepted bids. Those
submitting tenders will be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof.
The Secretary of the Treasury expressly reserves
the right to accept or reject any or all tenders, in whole or in part, and his action in any such respect shall be final. Subject
to these reservations, tenders f o r $200,000 or less f r o m any one bidder at 99.905 entered on a fixed-price basis will be accepted
in full. Payment of accepted tenders at the prices offered must be made or completed at the Federal Reserve Bank in cash
or other immediately available funds on March 22, 1945.
T h e income derived f r o m Treasury bills, whether interest or gain f r o m the sale or other disposition of the bills, shall
not have any exemption, as such, and loss f r o m the sale or other disposition of Treasury bills shall not have any special
treatment, as such, under Federai tax Acts now or hereafter enacted.
The bills shall be subject to estate, inheritance, gift,
or other excise taxes, whether Federal or State, but shall be exempt f r o m 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
F o r purposes of taxation the amount of discount at which Treasury bills are originally sold by the United States shall be
considered to be interest. Under Sections 42 and 117 ( a ) ( 1 ) of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended by Section 115 of
• the Revenue A c t of 1941, the amount of discount at which bills issued hereunder are sold shall not be considered to accrue
until such bills shall be sold, redeemed or otherwise disposed o f , and such bills are excluded f r o m consideration as capital
assets.
Accordingly, the owner of Treasury bills (other than life insurance companies) issued hereunder need include in
his income tax return only the difference between the price paid f o r such bills, whether on original issue or on subsequent
purchase, and the amount actually received either upon sale or redemption at maturity during the taxable year f o r which
the return is made, as ordinary gain or loss.
Treasury Department Circular N o . 418, as amended, and this notice, prescribe the terms of the Treasury bills and
govern the conditions of their issue.
Copies of the circular may be obtained f r o m any Federal Reserve Bank or Branch.

In accordance with the above announcement tenders will be received at the Securities Department of this bank (9th
floor, 33 Liberty Street) New York 7, N. Y . , or at the Buffalo Branch of this bank (270 Main Street) Buffalo 5, N. Y.

on special form printed on reverse side and returned in special envelope enclosed herewith. Attention is invited to the
fact that payment for the Treasury bills cannot be made by credit through the War Loan Deposit Account. Payment must
be made in cash or other immediately available funds.
