ITEM 5.  OTHER EVENTS
- ---------------------

     On August 7, 1996, the registrant announced that it is extending the 
expiration date of its outstanding warrants to September 22, 1997.  The 
warrants were due to expire on September 22, 1996.

     The warrants give the holder the option to purchase one share of the 
registrant's Common Stock at an exercise price of $1.50 per share. The 
registrant's board of directors believes that this extension is in the best
interest of the company's shareholders because it will preserve a source of 
capital to the company upon exercise of the warrants.

     The warrants were originally issued as part of Unit offering in September 
1991.  Each Unit consisted of three shares of Common Stock and two Redeemable 
Common Stock Purchase Warrants.  Since February 1992, the shares and warrants 
have traded separately.  All remaining terms and conditions of the warrants 
will remain the same.






                                   SIGNATURES

     Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, 
the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the 
undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
