Part II - Rules 12b-25(b) and (c)


If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable
effort or expense and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to
Rule 12b-25(b), the following should be completed.  (Check box if

      (a)    The reasons described in reasonable detail in Part III
             of this form could not be eliminated without
             unreasonable effort or expense;
      (b)    The subject annual report, semi-annual report,

             N-SAR, or portion thereof will be filed on or before

      Please note that in response to Part II paragraph (b) of
this form the registrant filed its report on Form 10-Q at 9:33pm
Eastern Standard Time on November 14, 1994.
      (see Part III of this form).

Part III - Narrative                                              

State below in reasonable detail the reasons why the Form 10-K,
20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, N-SAR or the transition report or portion
thereof could not be filed within the prescribed period.
                                  (Attach Extra Sheets if Needed)

     The registrant experienced difficulties with its internal 
consolidation system on November 14th.  By the time the
difficulties were corrected, the 5:30pm filing deadline had
expired. Upon rectifying the difficulties with the internal
consolidation system, the 10-Q was promptly filed at 9:33pm
E.S.T., November 14, 1994.  The registrant delayed in filing for
an extension at that time because it believed that the due date
was November 15, 1994.
