To All Banking Institutions and Others Concerned
in the Eleventh Federal Reserve District:

Your attention is invited to the following statement giving details of an issue of Treasury bills:
The Treasury Department, by this public notice, invites tenders for $2,000,000,000, or thereabouts, of 191-day Treasury
bills to be issued on a discount basis under competitive and noncompetitive bidding as hereinafter provided. The bills o f this series
will be dated December 13, 1971, and will mature June 21, 1972 (CU SIP No. 912793 N S 1 ). They will be accepted at face value in
payment of income taxes due on June 15, 1972, and to the extent they are not presented for this purpose the face amount of
these bills will be payable without interest at maturity. Taxpayers desiring to apply these bills in payment of June 15, 1972,
income taxes may submit the bills to a Federal Reserve Bank or Branch or to the Office of the Treasurer of the United States,
Washington, not more than fifteen days before that date. In the case of bills submitted in payment of income taxes of a corporation
they shall be accompanied by a duly completed Form 503 and the office receiving these items will effect the deposit on June
15, 1972. In the case of bills submitted in payment of income taxes of all other taxpayers, the office receiving the bills will issue
receipts therefor, the original of which the taxpayer shall submit on or before June 15, 1972, to the District Director of Internal
Revenue for the District in which such taxes are payable. The bills 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, Wednesday, December 8, 1971. Tenders will not be received at the Treasury Department, Washington. Each
tender must be for a minimum o f $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 Treas­
ury bills applied for, unless the tenders are accompanied by an express guaranty of payment by an incorporated bank or trust
All bidders are required to agree not to purchase or to sell, or to make any agreements with respect to the purchase
or sale or other disposition of any bills of this issue at a specific rate or price, until after one-thirty p.m., Eastern Standard
Tim e, Wednesday, December 8, 1971.
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 sub­
mitting competitive tenders will be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof. The Secretary o f 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, noncompetitive tenders for $300,000 or less without stated price from any one bidder will be
accepted in full at the average price (in three decimals) o f accepted competitive bids. Settlement for accepted tenders in
accordance with the bids must be made or completed at the Federal Reserve Bank in cash or other immediately available funds
on December 13, 1971. Any qualified depositary will be permitted to make settlement by credit in its Treasury Tax and Loan
Account for not more than 50 percent of the amount of Treasury bills allotted to it for itself and its customers.
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 o f 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 w ill be received at this bank and its branches at El Paso,
Houston and San Antonio, up to twelve-thirty pm., Central Standard Time, Wednesday, December 8, 1971. Tenders
may not be entered by telephone.
Yours very truly,
P. E. Coldwell
