auditors for the Company for the current fiscal year, and recommends that the
shareholders vote for ratification of such appointment.  

     Neither Ernst & Young nor any of its members have ever had any direct or
indirect financial interest in the Company or been connected with the Company
as promoter, underwriter, voting trustee, director, officer, or employee.  It
is anticipated that a representative of Ernst and Young will attend the
Annual Meeting and will be available to respond to questions.  It is not
anticipated that the representative will make any statement or presentation.

	   THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS UNANIMOUSLY RECOMMENDS A VOTE FOR
	 RATIFICATION OF THE APPOINTMENT OF THE INDEPENDENT AUDITORS.


				OTHER MATTERS

     The Company knows of no other matters to be submitted to the meeting. 
If any other matters properly come before the meeting, it is the intention of
the persons named in the enclosed proxy to vote the shares they represent as
the Board of Directors may recommend.

     It is important that your stock be represented at the meeting,
regardless of the number of shares which you hold.  You are, therefore, urged
to execute and return the accompanying proxy in the postage-prepaid envelope
enclosed for that purpose at your earliest convenience.
