To A ll Incorporated Banks and Trust Companies, and Others

Following is the text of a notice issued by the Treasury Department, released for publication today at 4 p.m.,
Eastern Standard time:
The Treasury Department, by this public notice, invites
tenders for two series of Treasury bills to the aggregate amount
of $2,700,000,000, or thereabouts, for cash and in exchange for
Treasury bills maturing April 10, 1969, in the amount of
$2,707,655,000, as follow s:
91-day bills (to maturity date) to be issued April 10,
1969, in the amount of $1,600,000,000, or thereabouts,
representing an additional amount of bills dated Janu­
ary 9, 1969, and to mature July 10, 1969, originally
issued in the amount of $1,101,815,000, the additional
and original bills to be freely interchangeable.
182-day bills, for $1,100,000,000, or thereabouts, to be
dated April 10, 1969, and to mature October 9,
1969.
The bills of both series 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
Standard time, Monday, April 7, 1969. Tenders will not be
received at the Treasury Department, Washington. Each tender
must be for an even multiple of $1,000, and in the case of com­
petitive 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. 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 or 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 sub­
mitting 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. Subject to
these reservations, noncompetitive 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. Settlement
for accepted tenders in accordance with the bids must be made
or completed at the Federal Reserve Bank on April 10, 1969,
in cash or other immediately available funds or in a like face
amount of Treasury bills maturing April 10, 1969. Cash and
exchange tenders will receive equal treatment. Cash adjust­
ments will be made for differences between the par value of
maturing bills accepted in exchange and the issue price of
the new bills.
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 treat­
ment, 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 taxa­
tion 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 com­
panies) 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.
Treasury Department Circular No. 418 (current revision)
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.

This Bank will receive tenders for both series up to 1:30 p.m., Eastern Standard time, Monday, April 7, 1969,
at the Securities Department of its Head Office and at its Buffalo Branch. Tender forms for the respective series
are enclosed. Please use the appropriate forms to submit tenders and return them in the enclosed envelope marked
“ Tender for Treasury Bills.” Tenders may be submitted by telegraph, subject to written confirmation; they may not be
submitted by telephone. Payment for the Treasury bills cannot be made by credit through the Treasury Tax and Loan

Account. Settlement must be made in cash or other immediately available funds or in maturing Treasury bills.
Results of the last weekly offering of Treasury bills (91-day bills to be issued April 3, 1969, representing an
additional amount of bills dated January 2, 1969, maturing July 3, 1969; and 182-day bills dated April 3 1969
