-2-


33
his option, convert all or any part of such Class B Common Stock

principal office, or to any agency maintained for the transfer of Class B Common
Stock, of the certificates for such Class B Common Stock so to be converted,
duly endorsed for transfer; and thereupon the holders of such Class B Common
Stock shall be entitled to receive in exchange therefor, a certificate or
certificates for fully paid and non-assessable shares of Common Stock. The Class
B common Stock shall be deemed to have been converted and the person converting
the same to have become a holder of record of Common Stock for the purpose of
receiving dividends and for all other purposes whatsoever, as of the date when
the certificate or certificates for such Class B Common Stock are presented and
surrendered to the corporation as aforesaid, provided, however, that no share of
Class B Common Stock surrendered for conversion after the date of declaration of
and before or on the record date for a dividend on Common Stock shall be
converted into Common Stock during such period.

(3) The corporation shall, so long as any of the Class B Common
Stock is outstanding, reserve and keep available out of its authorized and
unissued Common Stock, solely for the purpose of effecting the conversion of the
Class B Common Stock, such number of shares of Common Stock as shall from time
to time be sufficient to effect the conversion of all shares of the Class B
Common Stock then outstanding. The corporation shall, from time to time, if
necessary, amend its Articles of Incorporation to increase its authorized
capital stock and take such other action as may be necessary to permit the
issuance from time to time of the shares of Common Stock as fully paid and
non-assessable shares, upon the conversion of the Class B Common Stock as herein
provided.

(4) The corporation shall pay any and all taxes which may be
imposed upon it with respect to the issuance and delivery of Common Stock upon
conversion of Class B Common Stock as herein provided. The corporation shall not
be required, however, to pay any transfer or other taxes by reason of the
issuance of such Common Stock in names other than those in which the Class B
Common Stock surrendered for conversion may stand, and no conversion or issuance
of Common Stock shall be made unless and until the person requesting such
issuance has paid to the corporation the amount of any such tax or has
established to the satisfaction of the corporation and its transfer agent, that

into a different number of shares of the same or any other class or classes of
stock shall be made unless, and only unless, at the same time a split-up or
change in the shares of Common Stock shall be made in the same precise ratable
manner and amount.

(7) Subject to any limitations prescribed in accordance with
Article 5A above, in the event of any liquidation, dissolution or winding up of
the affairs of the corporation, whether voluntary or involuntary, the holders of
