To U.S. Bonds Locst cffiffifls wfifl fiftvfi ftrads en deposit in the abolished Postal Savings System were urged today to convert their holdings into United States Savings Postmaster Charles S. Stan fieltgissued a statement in which fta sfildt "Postmaster General Lawrence P. O'Brien, who is chairman of the Federal Savings Bonds Campaign, has appealed to the 930,000 Americans who have 1285,000,000 on deposit with the Post Office Department to convert tfretf investments Into United States Savings Bonds". "I Join him in urging local citizens who have Postal Savings accounts to make that change which will be of great benefit to both themselves and our country. Savings Bonds offer ev- ery advantage of convenience and security formerly available through Postal Savings Certificates plus many other advantages unique to Savings Bonds." Among those special advantages, the Clovis Postmaster said, are Savings Bonds' new, higher interest rate of 4. IS per cent and "The great intanbible benefit of supporting our country In the fight for freedom in the world and for economic progress and security here at home." Stanfiefd said details about the procedure for conversion can be obtained from the postmaster of any Postal Savings Depository Post Office. Clovis is the one in this area. The Postal Savings System, in operation since Jan. 1,1911, was discontinued April 27, 1966, by Act o? Congress. The Post Office presently is liquidating its accounts and on July 1, 1967, will transfer all unclaimed assets of the System to the Treasury Department. "The original puposes of the Postal Savings System have long since been fulfilled", Postmaster Stanfield commented, and, as Mr. O'Brien has emphasized, no greater new purpose could now be served by funds on deposit in the Postal Savings System than to put them to work for America in the Form of United States Savings Bonds."
