(a)  These distributions were declared on May 20, 2002. They had a

June 3, 2002, ex-dividend date and were paid on June 26, 2002,

to shareholders of record on June 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.
