FEDERAL RESERVE BANK OF DALLAS October 10,1935 A PROCLAMATION B Y THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES To the Bank Addressed: Your attention is invited to the appended proclamation, which was issued by the PRESI DENT OF THE UNITED STATES under date of September 28, 1935. Yours very truly, (QjtMcUaX, 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.
