will not recognize income, gain or loss for federal income tax purposes as a

Covenant Defeasance, the Issuers shall have delivered to the Trustee an opinion
of counsel in the United States reasonably acceptable to the Trustee confirming

and at the same times as would have been the case if such Covenant Defeasance
had not occurred; (iv) no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be
continuing on the date of such deposit (other than a Default or Event of Default

as Events of Default from bankruptcy or insolvency events are concerned, at any
time in the period ending on the 91st day after the date of deposit; (v) such
Legal Defeasance or Covenant Defeasance will not result in a breach or violation

Subsidiaries is a party or by which any of the Issuers or any of their
Restricted Subsidiaries is bound; (vi) the Issuers must have delivered to the

generally; (vii) the Issuers must deliver to the Trustee an Officers'

Issuers or others; and (viii) the Issuers must deliver to the Trustee an
Officers' Certificate and an opinion of counsel, each stating that all

Transfer and Exchange
 
   A Holder may transfer or exchange Notes in accordance with the Indenture.
The Registrar and the Trustee may require a Holder, among other things, to
furnish appropriate endorsements and transfer documents and the Issuers may
require a Holder to pay any taxes and fees required by law or permitted by the
Indenture. The Issuers are not required to transfer or exchange any Note
selected for redemption. Also, the Issuers are not required to transfer or
exchange any Note for a period of 15 business days before a selection of Notes
to be redeemed.
 
   The registered Holder of a Note will be treated as the owner of it for all
purposes.
 
Amendment, Supplement and Waiver
 
   Except as provided in the next two succeeding paragraphs, the Indenture or
the Notes may be amended or supplemented with the consent of the Holders of at
least a majority in principal amount at maturity of the Notes then outstanding
(including, without limitation, consents obtained in connection with a purchase
of, or tender offer or exchange offer for, Notes), and any existing default or
compliance with any provision of the Indenture or the Notes may be waived with
the consent of the Holders of a majority in principal amount at maturity of the
then outstanding Notes (including consents obtained in connection with a tender
offer or exchange offer for Notes).
 
   Without the consent of each Holder affected, an amendment or waiver may not
(with respect to any Notes held by a non-consenting Holder): (i) reduce the
principal amount of Notes whose Holders must consent to an amendment,
supplement or waiver, (ii) reduce the Accreted Value or principal of or change
the fixed maturity of any Note or alter the provisions with respect to the
redemption of the Notes (other than provisions relating to the covenants
described above under the caption "--Repurchase at the Option of Holders"),
(iii) reduce the rate of or change the time for payment of interest on any
Note, (iv) waive a Default or Event of Default in the payment of principal of
or premium, if any, or interest on the Notes (except a rescission of
acceleration of the Notes by the Holders of at least a majority in aggregate
principal amount at maturity of the Notes and a waiver of the payment default
that resulted from such acceleration), (v) make any Note payable in money other
