365-D A Y B IL L S for $1,200,000,000, or thereabouts, to be dated August 31, 1970, and to m ature August 31, 1971.
T h e bills of both series w ill be issued on a discount basis under com petitive and noncom petitive bidding as hereinafter
provided, and at m aturity their face am ount w ill be payable w ithout interest. T h ey w ill be issued in bearer form only, and in
denom inations of $10,000, $50,000, $100,000, $500,000 and $1,000,000 (m aturity v a lu e ).
Tenders w ill be received at F ederal R eserve Banks and Branches up to th e closing hour, one-thirty p.m ., Eastern
D aylight Saving T im e, Tuesday, August 25, 1970. T enders w ill not be received at the Treasury D epartm ent, W ashington. Each
tender m ust be for an even m ultiple of $10,000, and in the case of com petitive tenders the price offered m ust be expressed on the
basis of 100, w ith not m ore than three decim als, e.g., 99.925. Fractions m ay not be used. (N otw ithstanding the fact that the oneyear bills w ill run for 365-days, the discount rate w ill be com puted on a bank discount basis of 360-days, as is currently the
practice on all issues o f Treasury b ills.) It is urged that tenders be m ade on the printed forms and forwarded in the special
envelop es which w ill be supplied b y F ederal R eserve Banks or Branches on application therefor.
Banking institutions generally m ay subm it tenders for account of custom ers provided the nam es of the custom ers are
set forth in such tenders. Others than banking institutions w ill not be perm itted to subm it tenders except for their own accou n t
Tenders w ill be received w ithout deposit from incorporated banks and trust com panies and from responsible and recognized
dealers in investm ent securities. T enders from others m ust be accom panied by paym ent of 2 percent of the face am ount of
Treasury bills app lied for, unless the tenders are accom panied by an express guaranty of paym ent by an incorporated bank or
trust com pany.
Im m ediately after the closing hour, tenders w ill be opened at the Federal R eserve Banks and Branches, follow ing which
public announcem ent w ill be m ade by the Treasury D epartm ent of the am ount and price range of accepted bids. O nly those sub­
m ittin g com petitive tenders w ill be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof. T he 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, noncom petitive tenders for each issue for $200,000 or less w ithout stated price from any one
bidder w ill be accepted in full at the average price (in three decim als) 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 at the Federal R eserve B ank on August
31, 1970, in cash or other im m ediately available funds or in a like face am ount of Treasury bills m aturing A ugust 31, 1970.
Cash and exchange tenders w ill receive equal treatm ent. Cash adjustm ents w ill be m ade for differences betw een th e par value
of m aturing bills accepted in exchange and the issue price of the new bills.
T he incom e derived from Treasury bills, whether interest or gain from the sale or other disposition o f the bills, does not
have any exem ption, 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 h e bills are subject to estate, inheritance, gift or other excise taxes, whether
Federal or State, but 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 th e U n ited States, or by any local taxing authority. For purposes of taxation th e am ount of discount
at which Treasury bills are originally sold by the U n ited States is considered to be interest. Under Sections 454 (b ) and 1221 (5 )
of the Internal R evenue Code of 1954 the am ount o f discount at which b ills 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
incom e tax return only th e difference betw een the price paid for such bills, whether on original issue or on subsequent purchase,
and the am ount actually received either upon sale or redem ption at m aturity during the taxable year for which the return is
m ade, as ordinary gain or loss.
Treasury D epartm ent Circular No. 418 (current revision) and th is notice, prescribe the term s of th e Treasury bills and
govern th e conditions of their issue. Copies of the circular m ay be obtained from any Federal R eserve Bank or Branch.

In accordance w ith the a b ove announcem ent, tenders w ill be received a t this b a n k a n d its branches a t El Paso,
Houston an d San Antonio up to tw e lv e -th irty p.m ., Central D aylight Saving Time, Tuesday, August 25, 1970. Tenders m ay

Yours very truly,
P. E. Coidw ell
