T enders will be received a t Federal R eserve Banks and Branches up to the closing hour, one-thirty p.m., E astern
D aylight Saving Tim e, Monday, June 1, 1970. T enders will not be received a t the T reasury D epartm ent, Washington. Each

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 m ay subm it tenders for account of customers provided the names of the customers are
set forth in such tenders. Others than banking institutions will not be perm itted to subm it tenders except for their own account.
Tenders will be received w ithout deposit from incorporated banks and tru st companies and from responsible and recognized
dealers in investm ent securities. T enders from others m ust be accompanied by paym ent of 2 percent of the face am ount of

tru st company.
Im m ediately after the closing hour, tenders will be opened a t the Federal R eserve Banks and Branches, following which
public announcem ent will be made by the T reasury D epartm ent of the am ount and price range of accepted bids. Only those
subm itting com petitive tenders will be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof. T he Secretary of 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. Sub­
ject to these reservations, noncom petitive tenders for each issue for $200,000 or less w ithout stated price from any one bidder will
be accepted in full a t the average price (in three decimals) of accepted com petitive bids for the respective issues. S ettlem ent for
accepted tenders in accordance with the bids m ust be m ade or com pleted a t the Federal Reserve B ank on Jun e 4, 1970, in
cash or other im m ediately available funds or in a like face am ount of T reasury bills m aturing Ju ne 4, 1970. Cash and
exchange tenders will receive equal treatm ent. Cash adjustm ents will be m ade for differences between the p ar value of m atu r­
ing bills accepted in exchange and the issue price of the new bills.
T he income derived from T reasury bills, w hether interest or gain from the sale or other disposition of the bills, does not
have any exemption, as such, and loss from the sale or other disposition of T reasury bills does not have any special treatm ent,
as such, under the Internal Revenue Code of 1954. T he bills are subject to estate, inheritance, gift or other excise taxes, w hether
Federal or State, b u t are exem pt from all taxation now or hereafter imposed on the principal or interest thereof by any State,
or any of the possessions of the U nited States, or by any local taxing authority. For purposes of taxation the am ount of discount
a t which T reasury bills are originally sold by the U nited States is considered to be interest. U nder Sections 454 (b ) and
1221 (5 ) of the Internal R evenue Code of 1954 the am ount of discount a t which bills issued hereunder are sold is not con­
sidered to accrue until such bills are sold, redeem ed or otherwise disposed of, and such bills are excluded from consideration as
capital assets. Accordingly, the owner of T reasury bills (other th an life insurance com panies) issued hereunder need include
in his income tax return only the difference between the price paid for such bills, w hether on original issue or on subsequent
purchase, and the am ount actually received either upon sale or redem ption a t m aturity during the taxable year for which the
return is made, as ordinary gain or loss.
T reasury D epartm ent Circular No. 418 (current revision) and this notice, prescribe the term s of the T reasury bills and
govern the conditions of th eir issue. Copies of the circular m ay be obtained from any Federal Reserve Bank or Branch.
