     described above under "-- Procedures for Tendering" at any time prior to
     the expiration date.
     Notwithstanding any other term of the exchange offer, we will not be
required to accept for exchange, or exchange, any new notes for any original
notes, and may terminate or amend the exchange offer before the expiration date,
if the exchange offer violates any applicable law or interpretation by the staff
of the Securities and Exchange Commission.
     If we determine in our reasonable discretion that the foregoing condition
exists, we may
          (1) refuse to accept any original notes and return all tendered
     original notes to the tendering holders,
          (2) extend the exchange offer and retain all original notes tendered
     prior to the expiration of the exchange offer, subject, however, to the
     rights of holders who tendered such original notes to withdraw their
     tendered original notes, or
          (3) waive such condition, if permissible, with respect to the exchange
     offer and accept all properly tendered original notes which have not been
     withdrawn. If such waiver constitutes a material change to the exchange
     offer, we will promptly disclose such waiver by means of a prospectus
     supplement that will be distributed to the holders, and we will extend the
     exchange offer as required by applicable law.
     Harris Trust and Savings Bank has been appointed as exchange agent for the
exchange offer. Questions and requests for assistance and requests for
