basis of 100, w ith not more than three decimals, e.g., 99.925. F ractions may not be used. (N otw ithstanding the fact th a t th e oneyear bills will run for 365-days, the discount rate will be com puted on a bank discount basis of 360-days, as is currently the
practice on all issues of T reasury bills.) I t is urged th a t tenders be m ade on th e p rinted forms and forwarded in th e special
envelopes which will be supplied by Federal R eserve B anks or Branches on application therefor.
B anking institutions generally m ay subm it tenders for account of customers provided th e nam es of th e

tru st company.
Im m ediately a fter the closing hour, tenders will be opened a t th e Federal R eserve B anks and Branches, following which
public announcem ent will be made by th e T reasury D epartm ent of th e am ount and price range of accepted bids. Only those sub­
m itting com petitive tenders will be advised of th e acceptance or rejection thereof. T he Secretary of the T reasury 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, noncom petitive tenders for each issue for $200,000 or less w ithout stated price from any one
bidder will be accepted in full a t the average price (in three decim als) of accepted com petitive bids for the respective issues.
S ettlem ent for accepted tenders in accordance w ith th e bids m ust be m ade or com pleted a t th e Federal Reserve B ank on June
1, 1970, in cash or other im m ediately available funds or in a like face am ount of T reasury bills m aturing M ay 31, 1970.
Cash and exchange tenders will receive equal treatm ent. Cash adjustm ents will be m ade for differences between the p ar value
of m aturing bills accepted in exchange and th e issue price of th e new bills.
T he income derived from T reasury bills, w hether interest or gain from th e sale or other disposition of th e bills, does not
have any exemption, as such, and loss from the sale or other disposition of T reasury bills does not have any special treatm ent,
as such, under the Internal Revenue Code of 1954. T he bills are subject to estate, inheritance, gift or other excise taxes, w hether
Federal or State, but are exem pt from all taxation now or hereafter imposed on th e principal or interest thereof by any State,
or any of the possessions of the U nited States, or by any local taxing authority. F or purposes of taxation the am ount of discount
at which T reasury bills are originally sold by the U nited States is considered to be interest. U nder Sections 454 (b ) and 1221 (5 )
of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 th e am ount of discount a t which bills issued hereunder are sold is not considered to
accrue until such bills are sold, redeem ed or otherwise disposed of, and such bills are excluded from consideration as capital
assets. Accordingly, the owner of Treasury bills (other than life insurance com panies) issued hereunder need include in his
income tax return only the difference between the price paid for such bills, w hether on original issue or on subsequent purchase,
and the am ount actually received either upon sale or redem ption a t m atu rity during the taxable year for which th e return is
made, as ordinary gain or loss.
T reasury D epartm ent C ircular No. 418 (cu rren t revision) and this notice, prescribe th e term s of the T reasury bills and
govern the conditions of th eir issue. Copies of th e circular may be obtained from any Federal R eserve B ank or Branch.

In accordance with the above announcement, tenders will be received at this bank an d its branches a t El Paso,
Houston and San Antonio up to twelve-thirty p.m., Central Daylight Saving Time, Tuesday, May 26, 1970. Tenders may not

Yours very truly,
P. E. Coldwell
