from consideration as capital assets. Accordingly, the owner of T reasury bills (other th an life insurance com panies) issued here­
under m ust include in his income tax return, as ordinary gain or loss, the difference between the price paid for th e 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 a tu rity during
the taxable year for which the retu rn is made.
