T enders will be received a t Federal R eserve B anks and B ranches up to th e closing hour, one-thirty p.m., E astern
D aylight Saving Tim e, T hursday, July 23, 1970. T enders will not be received a t the T reasury D epartm ent, Washington. Each
tender m ust be for an even m ultiple of $10,000, and in the case of com petitive tenders th e price offered m ust be expressed on the
basis of 100, with not more than three decimals, e.g., 99.925. Fractions m ay not be used. (N otw ithstanding the fact th a t th e oneyear bills will run for 365-days, th e 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.) It is urged th a t tenders be m ade on the printed forms and forwarded in th e special
envelopes which will be supplied by Federal Reserve B anks or B ranches on application therefor.
Banking institutions generally m ay subm it tenders for account of customers provided th e names of the customers are
set forth in such tenders. O thers than banking institutions will not be perm itted to subm it tenders except for th eir own account.
T enders will be received w ithout deposit from incorporated banks and tru st com panies and from responsible and recognized

tru st company.
Im m ediately after th e closing hour, tenders will be opened a t th e Federal R eserve Banks and Branches, following which
public announcem ent will be m ade by the 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 the 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.
S ubject 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 decimals) of accepted com petitive bids for the respective issues.
Settlem ent for accepted tenders in accordance w ith the bids m ust be m ade or com pleted a t the Federal Reserve Bank on Ju ly
31, 1970, in cash or other im m ediately available funds or in a like face am ount of T reasury bills m aturing Ju ly 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 the issue price of th e new bills.
T he income derived from T reasury bills, w hether interest or gain from the sale or other disposition of th e bills, does not
have any exemption, as such, and loss from the sale or other disposition of Treasury bills does not have any special treatm ent,
as such, under the Internal R evenue Code of 1954. T he bills are subject to estate, inheritance, gift or other excise taxes, whether
Federal or State, b u t are exem pt from all taxation now or hereafter im posed 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
a t which Treasury 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 R evenue Code of 1954 the 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, th e owner of T reasury bills (other th an life insurance com panies) issued hereunder need include in his
income tax retu rn 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 th e T reasury bills and
govern th e conditions of their issue. Copies of the circular m ay be obtained from any Federal R eserve B ank or Branch.

In accordance with the above announcement, tenders will be received a t this bank a n d its branches a t El Paso,
Houston and San Antonio up to twelve-thirty p.m., Central Daylight Saving Time, Thursday, July 23, 1970. Tenders may
not be entered by telephone.

Yours very truly,
P. E. Coldwell
President
