(AN INDIANA CORPORATION)

ARTICLE I

SHAREHOLDERS

SECTION 1.0. Annual Meetings. The annual meeting of the shareholders of
the Corporation for the election of directors and for the transaction of such
other business as properly may come before the meeting shall be held on such
date as the Board of Directors shall set.

SECTION 1.1. Special Meetings. Special meetings of the shareholders may
be called at any time by the Board of Directors, the Chairman of the Board of
Directors, or the President. Shareholders shall not have the right to call
special meetings.

SECTION 1.2. Time and Place of Meetings. Each meeting of the
shareholders shall be held at such time of day and place, either within or
without the State of Indiana, as shall be determined by the Board of Directors.
Each adjourned meeting of the shareholders shall be held at such time and place
as may be provided in the motion for adjournment.

SECTION 1.3. Notice of Meetings. The Secretary shall cause a written or
printed notice of the place, day and hour and the purpose or purposes of each
meeting of the shareholders to be delivered or mailed at least ten (10) but not
more than sixty (60) days prior to the meeting, to each shareholder of record
entitled to vote at the meeting, at the shareholder's post office address as the
same appears on the records maintained by the Corporation. Notice of any such
shareholders meeting may be waived by any shareholder by delivering a written
waiver to the Secretary before or after such meeting. Attendance at any meeting
in person or by proxy when the instrument of proxy sets forth in reasonable
detail the purpose or purposes for which the meeting is called, shall constitute
a waiver of notice thereof. Notice of any adjourned meeting of the shareholders
of the Corporation shall not be required to be given unless otherwise required
by statute.

SECTION 1.4. Quorum. At any meeting of the shareholders a majority of
the outstanding shares entitled to vote on a matter at such meeting, represented
in person or by proxy, shall constitute a quorum for action on that matter. In
the absence of a quorum, the holders of a majority of the shares entitled to
vote present in person or by proxy, or, if no shareholder entitled to vote is
present in person or by proxy, any officer entitled to preside at or act as
Secretary of such meeting, may adjourn such meeting from time to time, until a
quorum shall be present. At any such adjourned meeting at which a quorum may be
present any business may be transacted which might have been transacted at the
meeting as originally called.

SECTION 1.5. Voting. Except as otherwise provided by statute or by the
Articles of Incorporation, at each meeting of the shareholders each holder of
shares entitled to vote shall have the right to one vote for each share standing
in the shareholder's name on the books of the Corporation on the record date
fixed for the meeting under Section 1.7. Each shareholder entitled to vote shall
be entitled to vote in person, by proxy executed in writing (which shall include
telegraphing, cabling or facsimile transmission) by the shareholder or a duly
authorized attorney in fact, or by proxy voted through electronic voting methods
(which shall include by telephone and by the Internet). Except as otherwise
specifically required by the Articles of Incorporation, these By-Laws, or by
statute, the vote of


<PAGE> 5

shareholders approving any matter shall require that the votes cast in favor of
the matter exceed the votes cast opposing the matter at a meeting at which a
quorum is present. In the event that more than one group of shares is entitled
to vote as a separate voting group, the vote of each group shall be considered
and decided separately.

SECTION 1.6. Voting Lists. The Secretary shall make or cause to be
made, after a record date for a meeting of shareholders has been fixed under
Section 1.7 and at least five (5) business days before such meeting, a complete
list of the shareholders entitled to vote at such meeting, arranged in
alphabetical order, with the address of each such shareholder and the number of
shares so entitled to vote held by each, which list shall be on file at the
principal office of the Corporation and subject to inspection by any shareholder
entitled to vote at the meeting. Such list shall be produced and kept open at
the time and place of the meeting and subject to the inspection of any such
shareholder during the holding of such meeting or any adjournment. Except as
otherwise required by law, such list shall be the only evidence as to who are
the shareholders entitled to vote at any meeting of the shareholders. In the
event that more than one group of shares is entitled to vote as a separate
voting group at the meeting, there shall be a separate listing of the
shareholders of each group.

SECTION 1.7. Fixing of Record Date. For the purpose of determining
shareholders entitled to notice of or to vote at any meeting of shareholders or
any adjournment thereof, or entitled to receive payment of any dividend, or in
order to make a determination of shareholders for any other proper purpose, the
Board of Directors shall fix in advance a date as the record date for any such
determination of shareholders, not more than seventy (70) days prior to the date
on which the particular action requiring this determination of shareholders is
to be taken. When a determination of shareholders entitled to vote at any
meeting of shareholders has been made as provided in this section, the
determination shall, to the extent permitted by law, apply to any adjournment
thereof. However, if any meeting of shareholders is adjourned to a date more
than 120 days from the original meeting date, the Board of Directors shall fix a
new date as the record date for purposes of determining shareholders.

SECTION 1.8. Notice of Shareholder Business. At an annual meeting of
the shareholders, only such business shall be conducted as shall have been
properly brought before the meeting. To be properly brought before an annual
meeting, business must be (a) specified in the notice of meeting (or any
supplement thereto) given by or at the direction of the Board of Directors, (b)
otherwise properly brought before the meeting by or at the direction of the
Board of Directors, or (c) otherwise properly brought before the meeting by a
shareholder. For business to be properly brought before an annual meeting by a
shareholder, the shareholder must have the legal right and authority to make the
proposal for consideration at the meeting and the shareholder must have given
timely notice thereof in writing to the Secretary of the Corporation. To be
timely, a shareholder's notice shall be delivered to or mailed and received at
the principal executive offices of the Corporation not less than 90 days prior
to the date in the current year that corresponds with the day on which the
Corporation held its annual meeting of shareholders in the previous year. A
shareholder's notice to the Secretary shall set forth as to each matter the
shareholder proposes to bring before the annual meeting (a) a brief description
of the business desired to be brought before the annual meeting and the reasons
for conducting such business at the annual meeting, (b) the name and record
address of the shareholder proposing such business, (c) the class and number of
shares of the Corporation's capital stock which are beneficially owned by such
shareholder, and (d) any material interest of such shareholder in such business.
Notwithstanding anything in these By-laws to the contrary, no business shall be
conducted at an annual meeting except in accordance with the procedures set
forth in this Section 1.8. The Chairman of an annual meeting shall, if the facts
warrant, determine and declare to the meeting that business was not properly
brought before the meeting in accordance with the provisions of this Section
1.8., and if he or she should so determine, he or she shall so declare to the
meeting and any such business not properly brought before the meeting shall not
be transacted. At any special meeting of the shareholders, only such business
shall be conducted as shall have been brought before the meeting by or at the
direction of the Board of Directors.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS

SECTION 2.0. General Powers. The property, affairs and business of the
Corporation shall be managed under the direction of the Board of Directors.

SECTION 2.1. Number and Qualifications. The number of directors which
shall constitute the whole Board of Directors shall be eight (8), which number
may be either increased or diminished by resolution adopted by not less than a
majority of the directors then in office; provided that the number may not be
less than seven (7) or more than 19, and no reduction in number shall have the
effect of shortening the term of any incumbent director. Neither ownership of
stock of the Corporation nor residence in the State of Indiana shall be required
as a qualification for a director.

SECTION 2.2. Classes of Directors and Terms. The directors shall be
divided into three classes as nearly equal in number as possible. Except as
provided in Article 5 of the Articles of Incorporation fixing one, two, and
three year terms for the initial classified board, each class of directors shall
be elected for a term of three (3) years. In the event of vacancy, either by
death, resignation, or removal of a director, or by reason of an increase in the
number of directors, each replacement or new director shall serve for the
balance of the term of the class of the director he or she succeeds or, in the
event of an increase in the number of directors, of the class to which he or she
is assigned. All directors elected for a term shall continue in office until the
election and qualification of their respective successors, their death, their
resignation in accordance with Section 2.6, their removal in accordance with
Section 2.7, or if there has been a reduction in the number of directors and no
successor is to be elected, until the end of the term.

SECTION 2.3. Election of Directors.

a. Election at Annual Meeting. At each annual meeting of shareholders,
the class of directors to be elected at the meeting shall be chosen by a
plurality of the votes cast by the holders of shares entitled to vote in the
election at the meeting, provided a quorum is present. The election of directors
by the shareholders shall be by written ballot if directed by the chairman of
the meeting or if the number of nominees exceeds the number of directors to be
elected.

b. Notice of Shareholder Nominees. Only persons who are nominated in
accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 2.3(b) shall be
eligible for election as Directors. Nominations of persons for election to the
Board of Directors may be made at a meeting of shareholders by or at the
direction of the Board of Directors, by any nominating committee or person
appointed by the Board of Directors or by any shareholder of the Corporation
entitled to vote for the election of Directors at the meeting who complies with
the notice procedures set forth in this Section 2.3(b). Such nominations, other
than those made by or at the direction of the Board of Directors, shall be made
pursuant to timely notice in writing to the Secretary of the Corporation. To be
timely, a shareholder's notice shall be delivered to or mailed and received at
the principal executive offices of the Corporation not less than 90 days prior
to the date in the current year that corresponds with the day on which the
Corporation held its annual meeting of shareholders in the previous year. A
shareholder's notice to the Secretary shall set forth (a) as to each person whom
the shareholder proposes to nominate for election or re-election as a Director,
(i) the name, age, business address and residence address of such person; (ii)
the principal occupation or employment of such person, (iii) the class and
number of shares of the Corporation's capital stock which are beneficially owned
by such person, and (iv) any other information relating to such person that is
required to be disclosed in solicitations of proxies for election of Directors,
or is otherwise required, in each case pursuant to Regulation 14A under the

3

<PAGE> 7


Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (including without limitation such
person's written consent to being named in the proxy statement as a nominee and
to serving as a Director if elected); and (b) as to the shareholder giving the
notice (i) the name and record address of such shareholder and (ii) the class
and number of shares of the Corporation's capital stock which are beneficially
owned by such shareholder. No person shall be eligible for election as a
Director of the Corporation unless nominated in accordance with the procedures
set forth in this Section 2.3(b). The Chairman of the meeting shall, if the
facts warrant, determine and declare to the meeting that a nomination was not so
declared in accordance with the procedures prescribed by these By-laws, and if
he or she should so determine, he or she shall so declare to the meeting and the
defective nomination shall be disregarded.

c. Vacancies. Any vacancy on the Board of Directors shall be filled by
the affirmative vote of a majority of the remaining directors.

SECTION 2.4. Meetings of Directors.

a. Annual Meeting. Unless otherwise provided by resolution of the Board
of Directors, the annual meeting of the Board of Directors shall be held at the
place of and immediately following the annual meeting of shareholders, for the
purpose of organization, the election of officers and the transaction of such
other business as properly may come before the meeting. No notice of the meeting
need be given.

b. Regular Meetings. The Board of Directors by resolution may provide
for the holding of regular meetings and may fix the times and places (within or
outside the State of Indiana) at which those meetings shall be held. Notice of
regular meetings need not be given. Whenever the time or place of regular
meetings shall be fixed or changed, notice of this action shall be mailed
promptly to each director not present when the action was taken, addressed to
the director at his or her residence or usual place of business.

c. Special Meetings. Special meetings of the Board of Directors may be
called by the Chairman of the Board or the President and shall be called by the
Secretary at the request of any three (3) directors. Except as otherwise
required by statute, notice of each special meeting shall be mailed to each
director at his or her residence or usual place of business at least two (2)
days before the day on which the meeting is to be held, or shall be sent to the
director at such place by telegram, facsimile transmission, or cable, or
telephoned or personally delivered, not later than the day before the day on
which the meeting is to be held. The notice shall state the time and place
(which may be within or outside the State of Indiana) of the meeting but, unless
otherwise required by statute, the Articles of Incorporation or these By-laws,
need not state the purposes thereof.

d. Waiver of Notice. Notice of any meeting need not be given to any
director, however, who shall attend the meeting, or who shall waive notice
thereof, before, at the time of, or after the meeting, in a writing signed by
the director and delivered to the Corporation. No notice need be given of any
meeting at which every member of the Board of Directors shall be present.

SECTION 2.5. Quorum and Manner of Acting. A majority of the actual
number of directors established pursuant to Section 2.1, from time to time,
shall be necessary to constitute a quorum for the transaction of any business
except the filling of vacancies on the Board of Directors under Section 2.3 or
voting on a conflict of interest transaction under Section 2.11. The act of a
majority of the directors present at a meeting at which a quorum is present,
shall be the act of the Board of Directors, unless the act of a greater number
is required by statute, by the Articles of Incorporation, or by these By-laws.

4

<PAGE> 8

Under the provisions of Article 6 of the Articles of Incorporation, certain
actions by the Board of Directors therein specified require not only approval by
the Board of Directors, but also approval by a majority of the Continuing
Directors, as therein defined. Any or all directors may participate in a meeting
of the Board of Directors by means of a conference telephone or similar
communications equipment by which all persons participating in the meeting may
simultaneously hear each other, and participation in this manner shall
constitute presence in person at the meeting. In the absence of a quorum, a
majority of the directors present may adjourn the meeting from time to time
until a quorum shall be present. No notice of any adjourned meeting need be
given.

SECTION 2.6. Resignations. Any director may resign at any time by
giving written notice of resignation to the Board of Directors, the Chairman of
the Board, the President, or the Secretary. Unless otherwise specified in the
written notice, the resignation shall take effect upon receipt thereof.

SECTION 2.7. Removal of Directors. Any director may be removed from
office at any time, with or without cause, but only upon the affirmative vote of
at least 80% of the votes entitled to be cast by holders of all of the
outstanding shares of Voting Stock (as defined in Article 6 of the Articles of
Incorporation), voting together as a single class.

SECTION 2.8. Action without a Meeting. Any action required or permitted
to be taken at any meeting of the Board of Directors or of any committee thereof
may be taken without a meeting, if taken by all members of the Board of
Directors or such committee, as the case may be, evidenced by a written consent
signed by all such members and effective on the date, either prior or subsequent
to the date of the consent, specified in the written consent, or if no effective
date is specified in the written consent, the date on which the consent is filed
with the minutes of proceedings of the Board of Directors or committee.

SECTION 2.9. Attendance and Failure to Object. A director, who is
present at a meeting of the Board of Directors, at which action on any corporate
matter is taken, shall be presumed to have assented to the action taken, unless
(a) the director's dissent shall be entered in the minutes of the meeting, (b)
the director shall file a written dissent to such action with the Secretary of
the meeting before adjournment thereof, or (c) the director shall forward such
dissent by registered mail to the Secretary immediately after adjournment of the
meeting. The right of dissent provided for by the preceding sentence shall not
be available, in respect of any matter acted upon at any meeting, to a director
who voted in favor of such action.

SECTION 2.10. Special Standing Committees. The Board of Directors, by
resolution adopted by a majority of the actual number of directors elected and
qualified, may designate from among its members one or more committees. Such
committees shall have those powers of the Board of Directors which may by law be
delegated to such committees and are specified by resolution of the Board of
Directors.

SECTION 2.11. Transactions with Corporation.

a. Conflict of Interest Transaction. A conflict of interest
transaction is a transaction with the Corporation in which a Director of the
Corporation has a direct or indirect interest. A conflict of interest
transaction is not voidable by the Corporation solely because of the Director's
interest in the transaction if any one (1) of the following is true:

(i) The material facts of the transaction and the Director's
interest were disclosed or known to the Board of Directors or a
Committee of the Board of Directors and the Board of Directors or
committee authorized, approved, or ratified the transaction.


5

<PAGE> 9

(ii) The material facts of the transaction and the Director's
interest were disclosed or known to the shareholders entitled to
vote and they authorized, approved, or ratified the transaction.

(iii) The transaction was fair to the Corporation.

b. Indirect Interest. For purposes of this Section 2.11, a Director of
the Corporation has an indirect interest in a transaction if:

(i) Another entity in which the Director has a material financial
interest or in which the Director is a general partner is a party
to the transaction; or

(ii) Another entity of which the Director is a director, officer,
or trustee is a party to the transaction and the transaction is, or
is required to be, considered by the Board of Directors of the
Corporation.

c. Action by the Board of Directors. For purposes of Section
2.11(a)(i), a conflict of interest transaction is authorized, approved, or
ratified if it receives the affirmative vote of a majority of the Directors on
the Board of Directors (or on the committee) who have no direct or indirect
interest in the transaction, but a transaction may not be authorized, approved,
or ratified under this section by a single Director. If a majority of the
Directors who have no direct or indirect interest in the transaction vote to
authorize, approve, or ratify the transaction, a quorum shall be deemed present
for the purpose of taking action under this section. The presence of, or a vote
cast by, a Director with a direct or indirect interest in the transaction does
not affect the validity of any action taken under Section 2.11(a)(1), if the
transaction is otherwise authorized, approved, or ratified as provided in such
subsection.

d. Action by Shareholders. For purposes of Section 2.11(a)(ii), a
conflict of interest transaction is authorized, approved, or ratified if it
receives the affirmative vote of the holders of shares representing a majority
of the votes entitled to be cast. Shares owned by or voted under the control of
a Director who has a direct or indirect interest in the transaction, and shares
owned by or voted under the control of an entity described in Section 2.11(b)
may be counted in such a vote of shareholders.

SECTION 2.12. Compensation of Directors. The Board of Directors is
empowered and authorized to fix and determine the compensation of directors and
additional compensation for such additional services any of such directors may
perform for the Corporation.

Corporation shall be entitled to have a certificate evidencing the shares owned
by the shareholder, signed in the name of the Corporation by the Chairman of the
Board, the President or a Vice President and the Secretary or an Assistant
Secretary, certifying the number of shares owned by the shareholder in the
Corporation. The signatures of the Chairman of the Board, the President, Vice
President, Secretary, and Assistant Secretary, and the signature of the transfer
agent and registrar may be facsimiles. In case any officer or employee who shall
have signed, or whose facsimile signature or signatures shall have been used on,
any certificate shall cease to be an officer or employee of the Corporation
before the certificate shall have been issued and delivered by the Corporation,
the certificate may nevertheless be adopted by the Corporation and be issued and
delivered as though the person or persons who signed the certificate or whose
facsimile signature or signatures shall have been used thereon had not ceased to
be such officer or employee of the Corporation; and the issuance and delivery by
the Corporation of any such certificate shall constitute an adoption thereof.
Every certificate shall state on its face the name of the Corporation and that
it is organized under the laws of the State of Indiana, the name of the person
to whom it is issued, and the number and class of shares and the designation of
the series, if any, the certificate represents, and shall state conspicuously on
its front or back that the Corporation will furnish the shareholder, upon
written request and without charge, a summary of the designations, relative
rights, preferences and limitations applicable to each class and the variations
in rights, preferences and limitations determined for each series (and the
authority of the Board of Directors to determine variations for future series).
Every certificate shall state whether such shares have been fully paid and are
nonassessable. Subject to the foregoing provisions, certificates representing
shares in the Corporation shall be in such form as shall be approved by the
Board of Directors. There shall be entered upon the stock books of the
Corporation at the time of the issuance or transfer of each share the number of
the certificates representing such share, the name of the person owning the
shares represented thereby, the class of such share and the date of the issuance
or transfer thereof

SECTION 5.1. Transfer of Shares. Transfer of shares of the Corporation
shall be made on the books of the Corporation by the holder of record thereof,
or by the shareholder's attorney thereunto duly authorized in writing and filed
with the Secretary of the Corporation or any of its transfer agents, and on
surrender of the certificate or certificates representing such shares. The
Corporation and its transfer agents and registrars, shall be entitled to treat
the holder of record of any share or shares the absolute owner thereof for all
purposes, and accordingly shall not be bound to recognize any legal, equitable
or other claim to or interest in such share or shares on the part of any other
person whether or not it or they shall have express or other notice thereof,
except as otherwise expressly provided by the statutes of the State of Indiana.
Shareholders shall notify the Corporation in writing of any changes in their

<PAGE> 15

certificate theretofore issued by it alleged to have been lost or destroyed upon
such terms and under such regulations as may be adopted by the Board of
Directors, and the Board of Directors may require the owner of the lost or
destroyed certificate or the owner's legal representatives to give the
Corporation a bond in such form and for such amount as the Board of Directors
may direct, and with such surety or sureties as may be satisfactory to the Board
of Directors to indemnify the Corporation and its transfer agents and registrars
against any claim that may be made against it or any such transfer agent or
registrar on account of the alleged loss or destruction of any such certificate
or the issuance of such new certificate. A new certificate may be issued without
requiring any bond when, in the judgment of the Board of Directors, it is proper
so to do.

SECTION 5.5. Redemption of Shares Acquired in Control Share
Acquisitions. Any or all control shares acquired in a control share acquisition
shall be subject to redemption by the Corporation, if either:

(a) No acquiring person statement has been filed with the Corporation
with respect to the control share acquisition, or

(b) The control shares are not accorded full voting rights by the
Corporation's shareholders as provided in IC 23-1-42-9.

A redemption pursuant to Section 5.5(a) may be made at any time during
the period ending sixty (60) days after the date of the last acquisition of
control shares by the acquiring person. A redemption pursuant to Section 5.5(b)
may be made at any time during the period ending two (2) years after the date of
the shareholder vote with respect to the voting rights of the control shares in
question. Any redemption pursuant to this Section 5.5 shall be made at the fair
value of the control shares and pursuant to such procedures for the redemption
as may be set forth in these By-laws or adopted by resolution of the Board of
Directors.
