      7.09  EMPLOYEE BENEFIT PLANS.

      For the purposes of this Article VII, references to "other enterprises"
shall include employee benefit plans; references to "fines" shall include any
excise taxes assessed on a person with respect to any employee benefit plan; and
references to "serving at the request of the Corporation" shall include any
service as a director, officer, employee or agent of the Corporation which
imposes duties on, or involves services by, such director, officer, employee or
agent with respect to an employee benefit plan, its participants or
beneficiaries; and a person who acted in good faith and in a manner he
reasonably believed to be in the interest of the participants and beneficiaries
of an employee benefit plan shall be deemed to have acted in a manner "not
opposed to the best interests of the 'Corporation' " as referred to in this
Article VII.

      7.10  BROADEST LAWFUL INDEMNIFICATION.

      In addition to the foregoing, the Corporation shall, to the broadest and
maximum extent permitted by Delaware law, as the same exists from time to time
(but, in case of any amendment to or change in Delaware law, only to the extent
that such amendment or change permits the Corporation to provide broader rights
of indemnification than is permitted to the Corporation prior to such amendment
or change), indemnify each person who was or is a party or is threatened to be
made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding,
whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative by reason of the fact
that he is or was a director or officer of the Corporation, or is or was serving
at the request of the Corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of
another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise,
against expenses (including attorneys' fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid
in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by him in connection with such
action, suit or proceeding. In addition, the Corporation shall, to the broadest
and maximum extent permitted by Delaware law, as the same may exist from time to
time (but, in case of any amendment to or change in Delaware law, only to the
extent that such amendment or change permits the Corporation to provide broader
rights of payment of expenses incurred in advance of the final disposition of an
action, suit or proceeding than is permitted to the Corporation prior to such
amendment or change), pay to such person any and all expenses (including
attorneys' fees) incurred in defending or settling any such action, suit or
proceeding in advance of the final disposition of such action, suit or
proceeding upon receipt of an undertaking by or on behalf of the director or
officer, to repay such amount if it shall ultimately be determined by a final
judgment or other final adjudication that he is not entitled to be indemnified
by the Corporation as authorized in this Section 7.10. The first sentence of
this Section 7.10 to the contrary notwithstanding, the Corporation shall not
indemnify any such person with respect to any of the following matters: (a)
remuneration paid to such person if it shall be determined by a final judgment
or other final adjudication that such remuneration was in violation of law; or
(b) any accounting of profits made from the purchase or sale by such person of
the Corporation's securities within the meaning of Section 16(b) of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and amendments thereto or similar provisions of
any federal, state or local statutory law; or (c) actions brought about or
contributed to by the dishonesty of such person, if a final judgment or other
final adjudication adverse to such person establishes that acts of active and
deliberate dishonesty were committed or attempted by such person
