Federal or State, b u t are exem pt from all taxation now or hereafter imposed on the principal or interest thereof by any State,
or any of the possessions of the U nited States, or by any local taxing authority. For purposes of taxation the am ount of discount
a t 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 the am ount of discount a t which bills issued hereunder are sold is not con­
sidered 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 T reasury bills (other th a n 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 aturity during the taxable year for which the
return is made, as ordinary gain or loss.
T reasury D epartm ent Circular No. 418 (current revision) and this notice, prescribe the 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 F ederal Reserve B ank or Branch.

In accordance with the above announcement, tenders will be received a t this bank and its branches a t El Paso,
Houston an d San Antonio up to twelve-thirty p.m., Central Daylight Saving Time, Monday, June 15, 1970. Tenders may
not be entered by telephone.
