OPPORTUNITY DRIVE

To Qualified Issuing Agents in the
Eleventh Federal Reserve District:
The Opportunity Drive for the sale of United States Savings Bonds will
start on May 16 and will close on July 18, 1949.
In anticipation of increased sales, it is suggested that issuing agents check
their present stocks of bonds, estimate their needs in advance as far as practi­
cable, and file requisitions for additional stock at this time to insure an adequate
supply of all denominations. As the bonds are received from the Treasury in
lots of 250 pieces to the package, it will assist us in making shipment if requi­
sitions for bonds are made in multiples of 250 where the need approximates or
exceeds that figure.
All issuing agents, except those issuing bonds exclusively to persons en­
rolled in payroll allotment plans, are requested to report and remit for sales
not less frequently than once a week, during the drive. Agents issuing bonds
exclusively to persons under payroll allotment plans, should report as frequently
as possible. More frequent reporting by all agents will facilitate the compilation
of accurate and up-to-date sales reports to the State Savings Bonds Divisions,
which will disseminate such information among the County Chairmen through­
out the Eleventh Federal Reserve District.
This bank and its branches will endeavor to render prompt service at all
times to issuing agents and to assist them in every way possible.
