We enclose a new proxy card with respect to the 1995 annual meeting scheduled
for April 22, 1995. The purpose of the new proxy is twofold: to substitute
Mr. John Huhtala for Mr. William Dudley as one of the proxies to vote your
shares at the meeting if you choose to vote by proxy; and to correct an error
on the voting side of the card. With regard to the first change, please be
advised that Mr. Dudley has requested that we appoint another representative
as proxy. With regard to the second change, on the old proxy card the caption
for the second row of boxes with respect to proposals 2,3, and 4 was labeled
"withhold"; it should have been labeled "against."
We recommend that you mark, sign, date and return the enclosed proxy card in
the enclosed self-addressed envelope. By executing the enclosed card, you
will automatically revoke any earlier-executed and returned card.
If you have previously executed and returned a proxy card and fail to execute
and return the enclosed card, your shares will be voted at the meeting as
you have previously instructed, and any votes indicated in the "withhold"
column with respect to proposals 2,3, and 4 will be voted as "against" at the
We urge you to mark, sign and return the enclosed proxy as promptly as
possible, whether or not you plan to attend the meeting in person.
