YIELDS DECLINE ON 4-WEEK T-BILLS

The Treasury Department sold $12 billion in four-week bills at a discount rate of 2.250 percent Tuesday, down from 3.430 percent last week. It was the lowest rate since the four-week bills became available on July 31.

The new discount rates understate the actual return to investors -- 2.285 percent for four-week bills with a $10,000 bill selling for $9,982.50.

Individual investors can purchase new bills from banks and brokerage houses.
