NOTICE OF CALL FOR REDEMPTION
HOME OWNERS' LOAN CORPORATION
To all Banks and Trust Companies in the
Second Federal Reserve District and Others Concerned:

Following is a copy of a press statement containing the text of a public notice
of call dated April 30, 1942, sent to you at the request of the Secretary of the
Treasury:
FEDERAL HOME LOAN BANK ADMINISTRATION
For release in A.M.
Newspapers of May 1, 1942
Washington, May 1—A call for the payment on July 1 of $875,000,000 Series G
21/4 Percent Bonds of the Home Owners' Loan Corporation was announced today
by John H. Fahey, Commissioner of the Federal Home Loan Bank Administration, which directs the HOLC.

^

The bonds have a maturity date of July 1, 1944, but are subject to call July
1, 1942. They must be presented for payment on or before the latter date to
Federal Reserve Banks or their Branches, or to the United States Treasury in
Washington, Mr. Fahey announced. With this action, the HOLC will have reduced
by some $936,000,000 its liability for unmatured bonds since the close of its lending period in June, 1936. Outstanding unmatured bonds after July 1 will total
about $2,109,000,000.
The HOLC will have available with the Treasury about $300,000,000 obtained
from repayments on HOLC loans and investments, made in accordance with the
provisions of the Home Owners' Loan Act, as amended. After July 1, about
$575,000,000 will be due the Treasury, which it is anticipated the HOLC will be
able to pay back to the Treasury at the rate of about $20,000,000 a month.
The official text of the notice to holders of the bonds is as follows:
"Public notice is hereby given that all outstanding Home Owners' Loan Corporation 2% Percent Bonds, Series G, 1942-44, dated July 1, 1935, are hereby
called for redemption on July 1, 1942, and will cease to bear interest on that
date. Full information regarding the presentation and surrender of the bonds
for redemption under this call is given in Treasury Department Circular No.
666 governing payment or redemption of securities.
An offering of interest bearing obligations of the United States may be made
available to holders of the bonds now called for redemption, concerning which
public announcement will be made at a later date by the Secretary of the
Treasury.
