(a)  These distributions were declared on July 19, 2002.  They had an

Aug. 1, 2002, ex-dividend date and were paid on Aug. 28, 2002, to

shareholders of record on Aug. 5, 2002.

(b)  Calculated by dividing preferred distributions paid during the month

by the number of common shares outstanding.

©  Based on a three-month average.

(d)  Accumulated, undistributed net investment income is reflected in a

fund's net asset value.  Any reduction of this amount will reduce net

asset value penny for penny.

(e)  The difference between net assets and total assets for CXT, MNB, XAA

and MXA is primarily due to the issuance of preferred stock; net

assets reflect common stock only.  For ASP, BSP, CSP, SLA and MRF,

the difference is primarily due to the funds' use of borrowings.
