Important Information concerning tho registration of Liberty Loan bonds, as given out by the bond department of tho Federal Reservo Bank of Chi cago contains the following quotation from a letter from tho Treasury de partment: "With refcronca to accoptlng nub scrlpttons for bonds to bo registered in tho names of persons giving only initials rather than tho full namo, I havo to say that it is tho intent of tho Department, not for its own sako, but for tho Bako of holders of registered bonds, to havo them registered in such manner as to enable tho said holders, or their legal representatives, to dis pose of them In tho simplest and readiest manner. Bonds issued to women under their initials, or under tho Initials of tholr husbands, aro not readily transferable in caso of tho death of tho holdor. "Though letters of administration would bo Issued in tho logal namo of tho deceased, and tho bonds would be Inscribed In her name, under her In itials, or thoso of her husband, aa tho caso might be. Tho letters ot admin istration and tho bonds would not agroo as to tho namo, and thorcforo tho administrator ot Mrs. Sarah A. Smith, say, would havo to provo that sho and Mrs. Thomas W. Smith (or Mrs. S. Smith) wero ono and tho same person. It is to avoid troubles of this character that tho Department has in sisted on receiving the legal namo of persons subscribing for registered bonds. "Of course, tho Department cannot rofuso to issuo bonds under initials if tho parties lntorosted Insist upon it, but it is requested that you, in all cases whero It is possible, insist on receiving tho full names of persons subscribing for registered bonds."
