the  voting  power  of  the shares of Class A Stock and  of  Class  B  Stock

entitled to vote, each voting separately as a class.

    

           (3)  No shareholder shall have the right to cumulate votes in the

      (4)   Any  transfer of shares of Class B Stock not permitted hereunder

     D.   Conversion Rights.

 

       (1) Subject to the terms and conditions of this Section D, each share

of  Class B Stock shall be convertible at any time or from time to  time  at

the  option of the respective holders thereof, at the office of any transfer

agent  for Class B Stock, and at such other place or places, if any, as  the

Board  of Directors may designate, or, if the Board of Directors shall  fail

so  to  designate, at the principal office of the Corporation (attention  of

the Secretary of the Corporation), into one (1) fully paid and nonassessable

share  of  Class  A Stock.  Upon conversion the Corporation  shall  make  no

payment or adjustment on account of dividends accrued or in arrears on Class

B  Stock  surrendered for conversion or on account of any dividends  on  the

Class  A  Stock issuable on such conversion. Before any holder  of  Class  B

Stock  shall  be entitled to convert the same into Class A Stock,  he  shall

surrender  the  certificate or certificates for such Class B  Stock  at  the

office  of  said  transfer agent (or other place as  provided  above)  which

certificate or certificates, if the Corporation shall so request,  shall  be

duly  endorsed  to  the  Corporation or in blank or  accompanied  by  proper

instruments of transfer to the Corporation (such endorsements or instruments

of  transfer to be in form satisfactory to the Corporation), and shall  give

written  notice  to  the Corporation at said office that  he  elects  so  to

convert  said Class B Stock in accordance with the terms of this Section  D,

and  shall state in writing therein the name or names in which he wishes the

certificate  or  certificates for Class A Stock to be  issued.   Every  such

notice of election to convert shall constitute a contract between the holder

of  such Class B Stock and the Corporation, whereby the holder of such Class

B  Stock shall be deemed to subscribe for the amount of Class A Stock  which

he  shall  be entitled to receive upon such conversion, and, in satisfaction

of  such subscription, to deposit the Class B Stock to be converted  and  to

release  the  Corporation  from all liability thereunder,  and  thereby  the

Corporation  shall be deemed to agree that the surrender of the  certificate

or  certificates therefor and the extinguishment of liability thereon  shall

constitute full payment of such subscription for Common Stock to  be  issued

upon  such  conversion.  The Corporation will as soon as  practicable  after

such deposit of a certificate or certificates for Class B Stock, accompanied

by  the written notice and the statement above prescribed, issue and deliver

at  the office of said transfer agent (or other place as provided above)  to

the  person for whose account such Class B Stock was so surrendered,  or  to

his  nominee  or nominees, a certificate or certificates for the  number  of

full  shares  of Class A Stock to which he shall be entitled  as  aforesaid.

Subject  to  the  provision  of  subsection (3)  of  this  Section  D,  such

conversion  shall  be  deemed to have been made  as  of  the  date  of  such

surrender  of the Class B Stock to be converted; and the person  or  persons

entitled to receive the Class A Stock issuable upon conversion of such Class

B Stock shall be treated for all purposes as the record holder or holders of

such Class A Stock on such date.

 

          (2)  The issuance of certificates for shares of Class A Stock upon

conversion of shares of Class B Stock shall be made without charge  for  any

stamp  or  other similar tax in respect of such issuance.  However,  if  any

such certificate is to be issued in a name other than that of the holder  of

the  share  or  shares  of Class B Stock converted, the  person  or  persons

requesting the issuance thereof shall pay to the Corporation the  amount  of

any  tax  which may be payable in respect of any transfer involved  in  such

issuance or shall establish to the satisfaction of the Corporation that such

tax has been paid.

 

                                     39

<PAGE>

         

          (3)   The  Corporation shall not be required to  convert  Class  B

Stock,  and  no  surrender  of Class B Stock shall  be  effective  for  that

purpose,  while the stock transfer books of the Corporation are  closed  for

any  purpose; but the surrender of Class B Stock for conversion  during  any

period  while such books are so closed shall become effective for conversion

immediately upon the reopening of such books, as if the conversion had  been

made on the date such Class B Stock was surrendered.

 

          (4)   The  Corporation covenants that it will at all times reserve

and  keep available, solely for the purpose of issue upon conversion of  the

outstanding shares of Class B Stock, such number of shares of Class A  Stock

as  shall  be  issuable upon the conversion of all such outstanding  shares,

provided  that nothing contained herein shall be construed to  preclude  the

Corporation from satisfying its obligations in respect of the conversion  of

the  outstanding shares of Class B Stock by delivery of shares  of  Class  A

Stock  which  are held in the treasury of the Corporation.  The  Corporation

covenants  that  all  shares of Class A Stock which  shall  be  issued  upon

conversion  of the shares of Class B Stock, will, upon issue, be fully  paid

and nonassessable and not entitled to any preemptive rights.  All shares  of

Class  A  Stock  acquired in exchange for shares of Class B  Stock  and  all

shares of Class B Stock converted into Class A Stock shall be cancelled  and

restored to the status of authorized but unissued shares of Class A Stock or

Class B Stock, as the case may be.

 

            (5) At any time when the Board of Directors and the holders of a

majority  of the outstanding shares of Class B Stock approve the  conversion

of  all of the Class B Stock into Class A Stock, then the outstanding shares

of  Class B Stock shall be converted into shares of Class A Stock.   In  the

event  of  such a conversion, certificates formerly representing outstanding

shares  of  Class  B  Stock  shall thereupon and  thereafter  be  deemed  to

represent the like number of shares of Class A Stock.

 

     E.   Liquidation Rights.

 

     In  the  event  of any dissolution, liquidation or winding  up  of  the

affairs  of the Corporation, whether voluntary or involuntary, after payment

or  provision  for  payment  of  the debts  and  other  liabilities  of  the

Corporation,  the  remaining assets and funds of the  Corporation,  if  any,

shall be divided among and paid ratably to the holders of Class A Stock  and

the  holders of Class B Stock.  A merger or consolidation of the Corporation

with  or  into any other corporation or a sale or conveyance of all  or  any

part of the assets of the Corporation (which shall not in fact result in the

liquidation   of  the  Corporation  and  the  distribution  of   assets   to

shareholders)  shall  not  be  deemed  to  be  a  voluntary  or  involuntary

liquidation  or  dissolution  or winding up of the  Corporation  within  the

meaning of this Section E.

     F.   Preemptive Rights.

 

     Subject  to any conversion rights of the holders of Class B  Stock,  no

holder of either Class A Stock or Class B Stock of the Corporation shall  be

entitled  as of right to subscribe for or receive any part of the authorized

stock  of  the  Corporation or any part of any new, additional or  increased

issues  of  stock  of any class or of any obligations convertible  into  any

class  or classes of stock, but the Board of Directors may, without offering

any  such  shares  of  stock  or  obligations  convertible  into  stock   to

shareholders  of any class, issue and sell or dispose of the  sale  to  such

persons and for such considerations permitted by law as it may from time  to

time in its absolute discretion determine.

     Corporation except as conferred by statute or bylaw or as authorized by

     resolution of the shareholders or Board of Directors;

         

          (v)  to authorize the payment of compensation to the directors for

          (vii)      to  authorize  the  guaranty  by  the  Corporation   of

     securities,  evidences  of  indebtedness,  and  obligations  of   other

     II.   Except  to the extent prohibited by law, the Board  of  Directors

establish the rights, powers, duties, rules and procedures that from time to

time shall govern the Board of Directors and each of its members, including,

without  limitation, the vote required for any such action by the  Board  of

Directors, and that from time to time shall affect the directors'  power  to

manage  the business and affairs of the Corporation; and no Bylaw  shall  be
