A total of $1 billion Treasury bills will be added to the outstanding weekly issues maturing from October 15 through December 17, inclusive. The offering will be divided into equal amounts of $100 million for each of those weekly maturities. Tenders for the $1 billion strip of bills will be received on Friday, July 24, at the Federal Reserve Banks and Branches, and payment will be required in immediately available funds on Wednesday, July 29, at those same locations. Payments by credit to Treasury Tax and Loan Accounts will not be permitted. In inviting tenders next Wednesday, July 22, for the regular weekly Treasury bill auction on Monday, July 27, the Treasury will offer $2.1 billion, $100 million more than the amount maturing. In addition, an announcement will be made on Thursday, July 23, of the Treasury’s plans for completing the cycle of one-year bills maturing at monthly intervals. The Treasury also presently expects to announce on Wednesday, July 29, plans for further short-term financing to replace the securities maturing on August 15 that were not exchanged in the advance refunding for which the subscription books closed last week. The full results of that refunding are not yet available. Reports in hand, however, indicate that public holders of the eligible issues subscribed for almost $9 billion, including over $3V2 billion of the reopened 4 % bonds of 1969, about $4 1 billion of the new 4V s% bonds of 1973, and over $1.1 billion /4 of the reopened 4V4% bonds of 1987-92. A full report of the preliminary results of that refund ing will be made available tomorrow. The official announcement and tender forms for the $1 billion strip of Treasury bills to be issued on July 29, 1964, are enclosed. Tenders for the additional bills will be received at this bank and its branches at El Paso, Houston and San Antonio, up to eleven-thirty a.m., Central Standard time, Friday, July 24, 1964.

The additional bills will be issued July 29, 1964, will be in the amounts, and will be in addition to the bills originally issued and maturing, as follows: Amount of Additional Issue $100,000,000 100,000,000 100,000,000 100,000,000 100,000,000 100,000,000 100,000,000 100,000,000 100,000,000 100,000,000 Original Issue Dates 1964 April 16 April 23 April 30 M ay 7 M ay 14 M ay 21 M ay 28 June 4 June 11 June 18 Maturity Dates 1964 October 15 October 22 October 29 November 5 November 12 November 19 November 27 December 3 December 10 December 17 Days from July 29 , 1964 to Maturity Amount Outstanding (in millions) 78 85 92 99 106 113 121 127 134 141 $2,102 901 900 900 900 900 900 905 901 901 $1,000,000,000 The additional and original bills will be freely interchangeable. Each lender submitted must be in the amount of $ 1 0,00 0 , or an even multiple thereof, and the amount tendered w ill be applied to each of the above series of bills on the basis of the ratio of each series to the total of all series. (For example, an accepted tender for $50,000 will be applied $5,000 to the issue with original date of April 16, 1964, and $5,000 to each of the additional weekly issues through the issue with original date of June 18, 1964.) The bills offered hereunder will be issued on a discount basis under competitive and noncompetitive bidding as hereinafter provided, and at maturity their face amount will be payable without interest. They will be issued in bearer form only, and in denominations of $1,000, $5,000, $10,000, $50,000, $100,000, $500,000 and $1,000,000 (maturity value). Tenders will be received at Federal Reserve Banks and Branches up to the closing hour, one-thirty p.m., Eastern Daylight Savings time, Friday, July 24, 1964. Tenders will not be received at the Treasury Department, Washington. In the case of competitive tenders the price offered must be expressed on the basis of 100, with not more than three decimals, e.g., 99.925. Fractions may not be used. A single price must be submitted for each unit of $10,000, or even multiple thereof. A unit represents $1,000 face amount of each issue of bills offered hereunder, as previously described. It is urged that tenders be made on the printed forms and forwarded in the special envelopes which will be supplied by Federal Reserve Banks and Branches on application therefor. Banking institutions generally may submit tenders for account of customers provided the names of the customers are set forth in such tenders. Others than banking institutions will not be permitted to submit tenders except for their own account. Tenders will be received without deposit from incorporated banks and trust companies and from responsible and recognized dealers in investment securities. Tenders from others must be accompanied by payment of 2 percent of the face amount of Treasury bills applied for, unless the tenders are accompanied by an express guaranty of payment by an incorporated bank or trust company. Immediately after the closing hour, tenders will be opened at the Federal Reserve Banks and Branches, following which public announcement will be made by the Treasury Department of the amount and price range of accepted bids. Those submitting tenders will be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof. The 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. Noncompetitive tenders for $100,000 or less (in even multiples of $10,000) without stated price from any one bidder will be accepted in full at the average price (in three decimals) of accepted competitive bids, provided, however, that if the total of noncompetitive tenders exceeds $200,000,000, the Secretary of the Treasury reserves the right to allot less than the amount applied for on a straight percentage basis with adjustments where necessary to the next higher multiple of $10,000. Settlement for accepted tenders in accordance with the bids must be made or completed at the Federal Reserve Bank or Branch in cash or other immediately available funds on July 29, 1964. The income derived from Treasury bills, whether 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 Treasury bills does not have any special treatment, as such, under the Internal Revenue Code of 1954. The bills are subject to estate, inheritance, gift or other excise taxes, whether Federal or State, but are exempt from all taxation now or hereafter imposed on the principal or interest thereof by any State, or any of the possessions of the United States, or by any local taxing authority. For purposes of taxation the amount of discount at which Treasury bills are originally sold by the United States is considered to be interest. Under Sections 454 (b ) and 1221 (5 ) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 the amount of discount at which bills issued hereunder are sold is not considered 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 amount actually received either upon sale or redemption at maturity during the taxable year for which the return is made, as ordinary gain or loss. Purchasers of a strip of the bills offered hereunder should, for tax purposes, take such bills on to their books on the basis of their purchase price prorated to each of the ten outstanding issues using as a basis for proration the closing market prices for each of the issues on July 29, 1964. (Federal Reserve Banks will have available a list of these market prices, based on the mean between the bid and asked quotations furnished by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.) Treasury Department Circular No. 418, Revised, and this notice, prescribe the terms of the Treasury bills and govern the conditions of their issue. Copies of the circular may be obtained from any Federal Reserve Bank or Branch. Payment for these Treasury bills must be made or completed at this bank or appropriate branch in cash or other immediately available funds on July 29, 1964. In accordance with the above announcement, tenders will be received at this bank and its branches at El Paso, Houston and San Antonio, up to eleven-thirty a.m., Central Standard time, Friday, July 24, 1964. Tenders may not be entered by telephone. Yours very truly, Watrous H.
