        order), for any purpose, to a demand deposit account of the

                construed to prevent an account offered pursuant to

        Governors of the Federal Reserve System may determine by rule 
        or order under section 19(i) to be permissible for member 
        banks), for any purpose, to a demand deposit account of the
