Tho privilogo of conversion which
nroso in conscQuenco of tho lssuo of
4l,i per cent bonds of tho Third Lib
erty Loan will expire on Novembor 9
and, under existing law cannot bo ox
tended or renowod. Holders of theso
4 por cent bonds lose nothing by ex
ercising tho prlvllego of conversion
and gain per cent interest por
annum. Holders of 4 per cent bonds
should not wait until tho last mo
mont to oxerclso tho privilogo of con
version, but proceed to do so prompt
ly. Delay will result in overburden
ing tho banking institutions of tho
country and tho Treasury Depart
ment by making It necessary to han
dle all conversions at tho last mo
mont, and may result in tho loss of
tho privilogo of conversion alto
gether. Holders of coupon bonds aro
strongly advised to request issuo of
registered bonds to protect them
selves against tho risk of loss, theft
nnd destruction of their bonds.
Official Department Circular No
111, with forms of application, has
boon distributed to Federal Itoservo
banks and banks and trust companies
throughout tho United States. Theso
institutions aro askod, as a matter of
patriotic sorvlco, to assist bond
holders in exchanging 1 per cent
bonds for VA per cent bonds and In

ISTRATION OF BONDS
Important Information concerning
the registration of Liberty Loan bonds,
as given out by tho bond department
of tho Federal Rcservo Bank of Chi
cago contains tho following quotation
from a letter from tho Treasury de
partment: "With roferenco to accoptlng sub
scriptions for bonds to bo registered
in tho names of persons giving only
initials rather than tho full name, I
havo to say that It Is tho Intont of tho
Department, not for Its own sako, but
for tho suko of holders of roQlstored
bonds, to havo thorn registered In such
manner as to enablo tho snld holdors,
or their legal representatives, to dis
pose of them In tho slmplost and
rcndlcst manner. Bonds Issued to
women under their Initials, or under
tho Initials of their husbands, aro not
readily transferable In caso of tho
death of tho holder. ,
"Though letters of administration
would bo lssuod In tho legal namo of
tho docoaBod, and tho bonds would bo
Inscribed' in hor namo, under her In
itials, or thoso of hor husband, as tho
caso might bo. Tho letters of admin
istration and tho bonds would not
ngrco ns to tho namo, and therefore
tho administrator of Mrs. Snrah A.
Smith, say, would havo to provo that
sho and Mrs. Thomas W. Smith (or
Mrs. S. Smith) woro ono nnd tho samo
person. It Is to avoid troubles of this
chnrnctor that tho Dopartmont has In
slstnd on receiving tho legal namo of
porsons subscribing for rcglstored
"Of courso, tho Dopartmont cannot
rofuso to Issuo bonds under Initials If
tho parties Interested Insist upon it,
but it is requested that you, in all
casosi whoro it Is possible insist on
receiving tho full names of persons
subscribing for roglstorod bonds."
