NEW OFFERING — TREASURY BILLS
To All Banking Institutions and Others Concerned
in the Eleventh Federal Reserve District:
Your attention is invited to the following statement giving details of two issues of Treasury bills:
The Treasury Department, by this public notice, invites tenders for two series of Treasury bills to the aggregate amount
of $3,300,000,000, or thereabouts, for cash and in exchange for Treasury bills maturing December 17, 1970, in the amount of
$3,104,050,000, as follows:
91-DAY BILLS (to maturity date) to be issued December 17, 1970, in the amount of $1,900,000,000, or there­
abouts, representing an additional amount of bills dated September 17, 1970, and to mature March 18, 1971
(C USIP No. 912793 JZ 0), originally issued in the amount of $1,401,635,000, the additional and original bills
to be freely interchangeable.
182-DAY BILLS for $1,400,000,000, or thereabouts, to be dated December 17, 1970, and to mature June 17, 1971
(CUSIP No. 912793 K N 5).
The bills of both series will be issued on a discount basis under competitive and noncompetitive bidding as hereinafter
provided, and at maturity their face amount will be payable without interest. They will be issued in bearer form only, and in
denominations of $10,000, $15,000, $50,000, $100,000, $500,000 and $1,000,000 (maturity value).
Tenders will be received at Federal Reserve Banks and Branches up to the closing hour, one-thirty p.m., Eastern
Standard Time, Monday, December 14, 1970. Tenders will not be received at the Treasury Department, Washington. Each
tender must be for a minimum of $10,000. Tenders over $10,000 must be in multiples of $5,000. In the case of competitive tenders
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.
Banking institutions generally may submit tenders for account of customers provided the names of the customers are
set forth in such tenders. Others than banking institutions will not be permitted to submit tenders except for their own account.
Tenders will be received without deposit from incorporated banks and trust companies and from responsible and recognized
dealers in investment securities. Tenders from others must be accompanied by payment of 2 percent of the face amount of
Treasury bills applied for, 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 Treasury Department of the amount and price range of accepted bids. Only those
submitting competitive 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. Sub­
ject to these reservations, noncompetitive tenders for each issue for $200,000 or less without stated price from any one bidder will
be accepted in full at the average price (in three decimals) of accepted competitive bids for the respective issues. Settlement for
accepted tenders in accordance with the bids must be made or completed at the Federal Reserve Bank on December 17, 1970,
in cash or other immediately available funds or in a like face amount of Treasury bills maturing December 17, 1970. Cash and
exchange tenders will receive equal treatment. Cash adjustments will be made for differences between the par value of matur­
ing bills accepted in exchange and the issue price of the new bills.
Under Sections 454 (b ) and 1221 (5 ) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 the amount of discount at which bills issued
hereunder are sold is considered to accrue when the bills are sold, redeemed or otherwise disposed of, and the bills are excluded
from consideration as capital assets. Accordingly, the owner of Treasury bills (other than life insurance companies) issued here­
under must include in his income tax return, as ordinary gain or loss, the difference between the price paid for the 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 for which the return is made.
Treasury Department Circular No. 418 (current revision) and this notice, prescribe the terms of the Treasury bills and
govern the conditions of their issue. Copies of the circular may be obtained from any Federal Reserve Bank or Branch.

In accordance with the above announcement, tenders will be received at this bank and its branches at El Paso,
Houston and San Antonio up to twelve-thirty p.m., Central Standard Time, Monday, December 14, 1970. Tenders may
not be entered by telephone.
Yours very truly,
P. E. Coldwell
