Tenders will be received a t Federal Reserve Banks and Branches up to the closing hour, one-thirty p.m., E astern
D aylight Saving Tim e, Friday, August 29, 1969. Tenders will not be received a t the Treasury 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 th e names of th e 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.
T enders will be received without deposit from incorporated banks and trust companies and from responsible and recognized
dealers in investm ent securities. Tenders from others must be accompanied by paym ent of 2 percent of th e face am ount of

tru st company.
Im m ediately after th e closing hour, tenders will be opened a t th e Federal Reserve B anks 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. Those
subm itting 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. Subject to
these reservations, noncom petitive tenders for each issue for $200,000 or less without stated price from any one bidder will be
accepted in full at the average price (in three decimals) of accepted competitive bids for the respective issues. Settlem ent for
accepted tenders in accordance with the bids m ust be made or com pleted a t the Federal R eserve B ank on Septem ber 4, 1969,

exchange tenders will receive equal treatm ent. Cash adjustm ents will be made for differences between the par value of m atur­
ing bills accepted in exchange and the issue price of th e new bills.
T he income derived from Treasury bills, w hether interest or gain from the sale or other disposition of th e 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, but 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. F or purposes of taxation the am ount of discount
a t which Treasury bills are originally sold by the U nited States is considered to be interest. U nder Section 454 (b ) and
1221 (5 ) of the Internal Revenue 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, redeemed or otherwise disposed of, and such bills are excluded from consideration as
capital assets. Accordingly, the owner of Treasury bills (other than life insurance companies) issued hereunder need include
in his income tax return only the difference between the price paid for such bills, whether 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.
Treasury D epartm ent Circular No. 418 (current revision) and this notice, prescribe the terms of th e T reasury bills and
govern the conditions of their issue. Copies of the circular m ay be obtained from any Federal Reserve Dank or Branch.
In accordance with the above announcement, tenders w ill be received a t this b ank and its branches a t El Paso,
Houston an d San Antonio up to tw elve-thirty p.m., Central Daylight Saving Time, Friday, August 29, 1969. Tenders m ay

Yours very truly,
P. E. Coldwell
