This 27-minute, 16 mm., color-sound film is designed to inform the general public of the purposes, organization and operations of the Federal Reserve System. There are scenes taken in each of the 12 Federal Reserve Districts and in Washington to illustrate the diversified activities of the Federal Reserve System. The viewer is taken on a tour of the Nation’s central banking system to see how its activities affect and serve the national interest. It may be borrowed, free, by schools and colleges, clubs and community groups, business, industry, farm and labor organizations and TV stations. We think your bank would benefit by sponsoring showings of this film. It should be of interest to high schools and colleges, luncheon and civic clubs, women’s clubs, bank employees and others. If your city has a TV station, it might wish to program the film. If your bank wishes to sponsor a presentation of the film, please write to our Bank and Public Relations Department indicating the date or dates upon which you would like to have it. There is enclosed a leaflet which describes the film and contains an order blank for ordering it. As the number of prints is limited, it will be necessary to honor requests in the order of their receipt; therefore, an alternate date should be indicated. Member banks served by one of our branches should send their requests to the branch. On the reverse of this letter, there is a list of other films available, without charge, from this bank. We will be happy to send any of these films to your bank for your use or for the use of any group interested in a visual education program. Yours very truly, Watrous H.

THE FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM. A 16 mm., black and white sound picture, running approximately 23 minutes. This film explains the purposes and functions of the Federal Reserve System. It shows how the System, growing naturally out of a national need, was devised to meet certain eco nomic conditions. The period from the money panic of 1907 through World War II is covered, with emphasis on historical high spots in the System’s development. 2. THE FEDERAL RESERVE BANK AND YOU. A 16 mm., black and white, sound motion picture film. This film presents a 30-minute story built around the Federal Reserve System and what it means to the individual citizen as a result of its relation to commercial banking, business, industry and agriculture. We believe the film will be a valuable aid to students of eco nomics, money and banking, and other social studies in high schools, colleges and universities. 3. YOUR MONEY’S WORTH. A 16 mm., colored, sound motion picture, which takes 38 minutes for showing. The film presents graphically through the use of flannel boards an explanation of inflation and deflation and their causes together with several methods that can be used which, at least in part, act as remedies. The film is considered to be of value as a college and American Institute of Banking teaching aid, and also an instructive feature for banking and business organizations. 4. YOU AND YOUR MONEY.
