                 (h)  to determine whether to require payment of tax
         withholding requirements in shares of Common Stock subject to the
         award; and

                 (i)  to impose any holding period required to satisfy Section
         16 under the Exchange Act.

         The Committee shall have the authority to adopt, alter, and repeal
such rules, guidelines, and practices governing the Plan as it shall, from time
to time, deem advisable; to interpret the terms and provisions of the Plan and
any award issued under the Plan (and any agreements relating thereto); and to
otherwise supervise the administration of the Plan.

         All decisions made by the Committee pursuant to the provisions of the
Plan shall be subject to ratification by the Board, which shall act only on the
recommendation of the Committee as to all matters as to which the Committee has
discretion pursuant to the provisions of the Plan.  Subject to such
ratification, the decisions of the Committee shall be final and binding on all
persons, including the Corporation and Plan participants.


         (a)     As of the Effective Date, the aggregate number of shares of
Common Stock that may be issued under the Plan shall be 1,950,000 shares.  The
shares of Common Stock issuable under the Plan may consist, in whole or in
part, of authorized and unissued shares or treasury shares.  No officer of the
Corporation or other person whose compensation may be subject to the
limitations on deductibility under Section 162(m) of the Code shall be eligible
to receive awards pursuant to this Plan relating to in excess of 600,000 shares
of Common Stock in any fiscal year (the "Section 162(m) Maximum").

         (b)     If any shares of Common Stock that have been optioned cease to
be subject to a Stock Option, or if any shares of Common Stock that are subject
to any Restricted Stock or Other Stock-Based Award granted hereunder are
forfeited prior to the payment of any dividends, if applicable, with respect to
such shares of Common Stock, or any such award otherwise terminates without a
payment being made to the participant in the form of Common Stock, such shares
shall again be available for distribution in connection with future awards
under the Plan.

         (c)     In the event of any merger, reorganization, consolidation,
recapitalization, extraordinary cash dividend, stock dividend, stock split or
other change in corporate structure affecting the Common Stock, an appropriate
substitution or adjustment shall be made in the maximum number of shares that
may be awarded under the Plan, in the number and option price of shares
subject to outstanding Options granted under the Plan, in the number of shares
underlying grants of Restricted Stock and Outside Director Restricted Stock,
the Section 162(m) Maximum and in the number of shares subject to other
outstanding awards granted under the Plan as may be determined to be
appropriate by the Committee, in its sole discretion, provided that the number
of shares subject
