      (f) that, unless the Issuers default in making such redemption payment,
interest on Notes called for redemption ceases to accrue on and after the
redemption date;

      (g) the paragraph of the Notes and/or Section of this Indenture pursuant
to which the Notes called for redemption are being redeemed; and

      (h) that no representation is made as to the correctness or accuracy of
the CUSIP number, if any, listed in such notice or printed on the Notes.

      At the Issuers' request, the Trustee shall give the notice of redemption
in the Issuers' name and at their expense; provided, however, that each of the
Issuers shall have delivered to the Trustee, at least 45 days prior to the
redemption date, an Officers' Certificate requesting that the Trustee give such
notice and setting forth the information to be stated in such notice as provided
in the preceding paragraph.

Section 3.04. Effect of Notice of Redemption.

      Once notice of redemption is mailed in accordance with Section 3.03, Notes
called for redemption become irrevocably due and payable on the redemption date
at the redemption price. A notice of redemption may not be conditional.

Section 3.05. Deposit of Redemption Price.

      At or prior to 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on the redemption date, the
Issuers shall deposit with the Trustee or with the Paying Agent money sufficient
to pay the redemption price of and accrued interest on all Notes to be redeemed
on that date. The Trustee or the Paying Agent shall promptly return to the
Issuers any money deposited with the Trustee or the Paying Agent by the Issuers
in excess of the amounts necessary to pay the redemption price of, and accrued
interest on, all Notes to be redeemed.

      If the Issuers comply with the provisions of the preceding paragraph, on
and after the redemption date, interest shall cease to accrue on the Notes or
the portions of Notes called for redemption. If a Note is redeemed on or after
an interest record date but on or prior to the related interest payment date,
then any accrued and unpaid interest shall be paid to the Person in whose name
such Note was registered at the close of business on such record date. If any
Note called for redemption shall not be so paid upon surrender for redemption
because of the failure of the Issuers to comply with the preceding paragraph,
interest shall be paid on the unpaid principal, from the redemption date until
such principal is paid, and to the extent lawful on any interest not paid on
such unpaid principal, in each case at the rate provided in the Notes and in
Section 4.01.

Section 3.06. Notes Redeemed in Part.

      Upon surrender of a Note that is redeemed in part, the Issuers shall issue
and, upon the Issuers' written request, the Trustee shall authenticate for the
Holder at the expense of the Issuers a new Note equal in principal amount to the
unredeemed portion of the Note surrendered.

Section 3.07. Optional Redemption.

      (a) Except as set forth in clause (b) of this Section 3.07, the Issuers
shall not have the option to redeem the Notes pursuant to this Section 3.07
prior to April 1, 2004. Thereafter, the Issuers shall have the option to redeem
the Notes, in whole or in part, upon not less than 30 nor more than 60 days'
notice, at the redemption prices (expressed as percentages of principal amount)
set forth below plus
