Decided December 4, 1944

323 U.S. 111


1. An open account claim of a creditor of the United States, representing a balance claimed to be due under Army construction contracts, held not a credit instrumentality of the United States, and not constitutionally immune from nondiscriminatory state taxation. P. 323 U. S. 113.

2. R.S. § 3701, exempting from state and local taxation "[a]ll stocks, bonds, Treasury notes, and other obligations of the United States" held inapplicable to an open account claim of a creditor of the United States. P. 323 U. S. 116.

3. Under the rule of ejusdem generis, the words "other obligations" in R.S. § 3701 are to be construed as referring only to obligations or securities of the same type as those specifically enumerated, and not as extending to noninterest-bearing claims or obligations which the United States does not use or need for credit purposes. P. 323 U. S. 117.
