A PROCLAMATION B Y THE PRESIDENT

To the Bank Addressed:
Your attention is invited to the appended proclamation, which was issued by the PRESIĀ­
DENT OF THE UNITED STATES under date of September 28, 1935.
Yours very truly,

Federal Reserve Agent

Executive Office,
September 28,1935

All Banks:
The nation-wide works program whieh the federal government has
launched in order to give employment to men and women on the relief rolls
is now under way. The program will naturally involve the issuance o f a large
number o f pay checks, which checks will be drawn on the Treasurer o f the
United States by federal disbursing officers in the states.
In order to prevent delays in the payment o f wages and in order that
these workers, practically all of whom have been on the relief rolls, may
receive the fullest benefit from their employment, it is essential that our
banks throughout the country extend every possible cooperation by cashing
their checks at par upon proper identification, which will in most cases be
the identification card given the payee by the employing office. I urge
bankers to extend to this program the fullest cooperation to the end that
these checks will be cashed promptly and in full.
