More than $15,000,000 semi-annual
interest on the First Libert
Loan Bonds and Victory Liberty
Loan acts was due on the 15th of
June in the Twelfth Reserve district,
according to figure complied by the
Federal Reserve bank of San Fran
cisco. Interest coupons of both is
sues can be cashed at any bank. The
exact total sum due on the amount
of First Loan bonds and Victory
Loan notes sold in the twelfth dis
trict is $15,291,591.
"For those who have been dis
creet enough to hold their Liberty
Loan securities," said Theodore Har
dee, director of the government sav
ings organization for the twelfth
Federal Reserve district, "this wind
fall may be termed the fruit of vic
tory. Of course, there is no way of
knowing just how much of this in
terest money is due people now re
siding in the twelfth Federal Re
serve district, because many people
have sold their bonds and notes and
many of these securities have gravi
tated to eastern financial centers,
where they are being absorbed wise
ly by wealthy persons and estates."
Director Hardee advised all hold
ers of First Loan Bonds and Victory
Loan Notes to take the time to clip
their coupons due and cash them.
"Undipped coupons represent idle
money," he said, "which ought to
be re-invested immediately in gov
ernment savings securities, such as
the $5 War Savings stamp and the
$25, $100, and $1,000 Treasury Sav
ings certificates. These government
savings securities pay four per cent
interest, compounded quarterly, and
inature in five years. They have a
guaranteed value at all times and
are not subject to market fluctua
tions, as they are redeemable upon
short notice. As a rule, government
savings securities can be bought at
the bank where you cash your cou
pons if not, they can be obtained
at all post offices."
Liberty Bonds at the present at
tractive market prices are also sug
gested by Director Hardee as an ex
cellent investment for the semi-annual
interest money on the first loan
bonds and Victory loan notes where
the interest return is enough to pur
chase Liberty bonds. Some issues of
Liberty bonds will net purchasers
at present market prices a premium
of $15 plus the interest rate if held
until maturity.
Dates of other semi-annual in-
I teres! payments due on the Liberty
issues during 1921 are as follows:
Third loan September 15
Fourth Loan October 15
Second Loan November 15
First Loan and Victory
Loan December 1 5
All banks and post offices in the
twelfth Federal Reserve district have
been requested to stress the Liberty
I loan interest payments due now and
to co-operate by aiding owners of
these issues to re-invest their inter
est money in government savings
securities or Liberty bonds.
