paragraph any imported material, used in the production of an

article in the United States, shall be considered as having been

used in the production of an article subsequently produced in the

United States, which is the product of a chain of production in

connection with importation unless the law of the country

imposing it designates or imposes it as a customs duty or

contains a provision to the effect that it shall be treated as

a duty imposed under the customs laws.

(b) For the purposes of sections 1271(b) and 1311(b) of this

title, any material, used in the production of an article, shall be

considered as having been used in the production of an article

subsequently produced, which is the product of a chain of

production in the course of which an article, which is the product

by law, treaty, trade agreement, or otherwise, with respect to

any article, shall be converted into the equivalent reduction in

the rate of ordinary customs duty otherwise applicable to such

Sec. 1393. Supplementary sinking fund for bond payments; purchase

of bonds by United States; creation of special trust account

-STATUTE-

(a) to (f). Repealed. Apr. 30, 1946, ch. 244, title V, Sec.

511(2), 60 Stat. 158.

(g)(1) The Philippine Government shall pay to the Secretary of

the Treasury of the United States, at the end of each calendar

quarter, all of the moneys received during such quarter from export

taxes (less refunds), imposed and collected in accordance with the

provisions of this section, and said moneys shall be deposited in

an account with the Treasurer of the United States and shall

constitute a supplementary sinking fund for the payment of bonds of

the Philippines, its Provinces, cities, and municipalities, issued

prior to May 1, 1934, under authority of Acts of Congress:

Provided, however, That moneys received from any export tax imposed

on any article which is shipped from the Philippines to the United

States prior to July 4, 1946, and which is entered, or withdrawn

from warehouse for consumption, on or after July 4, 1946, shall be

refunded by the independent Government of the Philippines.

(2) The said Secretary of the Treasury is authorized to accept

the deposits of the proceeds of the export taxes referred to in

subdivision (1) of this subsection in accordance with section 1333

(!1) of this title.

(3) The Secretary of the Treasury of the United States, with the

approval of the Philippine Government, is authorized to purchase

with such supplementary sinking-fund bonds of the Philippines, its

Provinces, cities, and municipalities, issued prior to May 1, 1934,

under authority of Acts of Congress and to invest such fund in

interest-bearing obligations of the United States or in obligations

guaranteed as to both principal and interest by the United States.

Whenever the Secretary of the Treasurer (!2) finds that such fund

is in excess of an amount adequate to meet future interest and

principal payments on all such bonds, he may, with the approval of

the Philippine Government, purchase with such excess any other

bonds of the Philippines, its Provinces, cities, municipalities,

and instrumentalities. For the purpose of this subsection

obligations may be acquired on original issue at par, or by

purchase of outstanding obligations at the market price. Any

obligations acquired by the fund may, with the approval of the

Philippine Government, be sold by the Secretary of the Treasury at

the market price and the proceeds of such sale and the proceeds of

the payment upon maturity or redemption of any obligations held in

the supplementary sinking fund, as well as all moneys in any manner

earned by such fund or on any obligations acquired by said fund,

shall be paid into the said fund.

(4) During the three months preceding July 4, 1946, the

Philippine Government and the Secretary of the Treasury of the

United States shall confer to ascertain that portion of the bonds

of the Philippines, its Provinces, cities, and municipalities,

issued prior to May 1, 1934, under authority of Acts of Congress,

which will remain outstanding on July 4, 1946; and the Philippine

Government shall turn over to the Secretary of the Treasury of the

United States for destruction all such bonds that are then held,

canceled, or uncanceled, in any of the sinking funds maintained for

the payment of such bonds. After such outstanding portion of this

indebtedness is thus determined, and before July 4, 1946, (i) there

shall be set up with the Treasurer of the United States a special

trust account in the name of the Secretary of the Treasury of the

United States to pay future interest and principal payments on such

bonds; (ii) the Philippine Government shall pay to the Secretary of

the Treasury of the United States for deposit in this special trust

account all of the sinking funds maintained for the payment of such

bonds; and (iii) the Secretary of the Treasury of the United States

shall transfer into this special trust account all of the proceeds

of the supplementary sinking fund referred to in subdivision (1) of

this subsection. Any portion of such special trust account found by

the Secretary of the Treasury of the United States on July 4, 1946,

to be in excess of an amount adequate to meet future interest and

principal payments on all such outstanding bonds shall be turned

over to the Treasury of the independent Government of the

Philippines to be set up as an additional sinking fund to be used

for the purpose of liquidating and paying all other obligations of

the Philippines, its Provinces, cities, municipalities, and

instrumentalities. To the extent that such special trust account is

determined by the Secretary of the Treasury of the United States to

be insufficient to pay interest and principal on the outstanding

bonds of the Philippines, its Provinces, cities, and

municipalities, issued prior to May 1, 1934, under authority of

Acts of Congress, the Philippine Government shall, on or before

July 3, 1946, pay to the Secretary of the Treasury of the United

States for deposit in such special trust account an amount which

said Secretary of the Treasury determines is required to assure

payment of principal and interest on such bonds: Provided, however,

That if the Secretary of the Treasury of the United States finds

that this requirement would impose an undue hardship upon the

Philippines, then the Philippine Government shall continue to

provide annually the necessary funds for the payment of interest

and principal on such bonds until such time as the Secretary of the

Treasury of the United States determines that the amount in the

special trust account is adequate to meet interest and principal

payments on such bonds.

(5) On and after July 4, 1946, the Secretary of the Treasury of

the United States is authorized, with the approval of the

independent Government of the Philippines, to purchase at the

market price for the special trust account bonds of the

Philippines, its Provinces, cities, and municipalities, issued

prior to May 1, 1934, under authority of Acts of Congress. The

Secretary of the Treasury of the United States is also authorized,

with the approval of the independent Government of the Philippines,

to invest all or any part of such special trust account in any

interest-bearing obligations of the United States or in any

obligations guaranteed as to both principal and interest by the

United States. Such obligations may be acquired on original issue

at the issue price or by purchase of outstanding obligations at the

market price, and any obligations acquired by the special trust

account may, with the approval of the independent Government of the

Philippines, be sold by the Secretary of the Treasury at the market

price, and the proceeds of the payment upon maturity or redemption

of such obligations shall be held as a part of such special trust

account. Whenever the special trust account is determined by the

Secretary of the Treasury of the United States to be adequate to

meet interest and principal payments on all outstanding bonds of

the Philippines, its Provinces, cities, and municipalities, issued

prior to May 1, 1934, under authority of Acts of Congress, the

Secretary of the Treasury is authorized to pay from such trust

account the principal of such outstanding bonds and to pay all

interest due and owing on such bonds. All such bonds and interest

coupons paid or purchased by the special trust account shall be

canceled and destroyed by the Secretary of the Treasury of the

United States. From time to time after July 4, 1946, any moneys in

such special trust account found by the Secretary of the Treasury

of the United States to be in excess of an amount adequate to meet

interest and principal payments on all such bonds shall be turned

over to the treasurer of the independent Government of the

Philippines.
