T O A L L B A N KS A N D BANKERS, ELE V E N TH FED ERAL RESERVE DISTRICT. W e are just in receipt of the following telegram from the Foreign Exchange Division of the Federal Reserve Board: “ Bankers, merchants, manufacturers, exporters and importers, and all others car rying accounts with or for foreign correspondents, either in account current or securi ties, who have not made application for registration certificates by March 18, as re quired by Executive Order of the President, will be prohibited from continuing trans actions covered by the order.” So far, in this District, only a small percentage of those effected by this order have applied for registration certificates, and in order that there may be no interruption to their foreign exchange business after March 18 (whether it is carried on direct or through a domestic cor respondent) it is urged that applications be filed at once for registration certificates by those who require same. Requests for application blanks should be made immediately to this bank. Yours very truly, Governor.
