          SECTION 1.  Annual Meeting.

            The annual meeting of stockholders of the company (the "Annual
Meeting") for the election of directors and the transaction of such other
business as may properly come before the meeting shall be held at the offices of
the company in the City of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, or at such other place where
the company has business operations, as the Chairman may designate, on the first
Tuesday of June in each year, unless the directors designate a different date.

          (b)  At an Annual Meeting, only such business shall be conducted, and
only nominations for the election of directors shall be made, as shall have been
properly brought before the meeting in accordance with these By-Laws. To be
properly brought before an Annual Meeting, business or nominations must (i) be
specified in the notice of the meeting (or any supplement thereto) given by or
at the direction of the Board of Directors; (ii) otherwise properly be brought
before the meeting by or at the direction of the Board of Directors; or (iii)
otherwise (A) properly be requested to be brought before the meeting by a
stockholder of record of the company (a "Stockholder") entitled to vote in the
election of directors generally and (B) constitute a proper subject to be
brought before such meeting. For nominations or other business to be properly
requested to be brought before an Annual Meeting by a Stockholder, any
Stockholder who intends to bring any matter before an Annual Meeting and is
entitled to vote on such matter must deliver written notice of such
Stockholder's intent to bring the matter before the Annual Meeting, either by
personal delivery or by United States mail, postage prepaid, to the Secretary of
the company. Such notice must be received by the Secretary by (x) March 15,
1996, in the case of the Annual Meeting scheduled to be held on June 4, 1996, or
(y) 90 days prior to the first anniversary of the immediately preceding Annual
Meeting in the case of any other Annual Meeting; provided, however, that in the
event that the date for which the Annual Meeting is called is advanced by more
than 30 days or delayed by more than 60 days from the date specified in clause
(x) or (y), as the case may be, notice by the Stockholder to be timely must be
so delivered not earlier than the close of business on the 100th day prior to
the date of such Annual Meeting and not later than the close of business on the
later of the 75th day prior to the date of such

Annual Meeting or the 10th day following the day on which public announcement of
the date of such meeting is first made. In no event shall the announcement of an
adjournment of an Annual Meeting commence a new time period for the giving of a
Stockholder notice as described above.

          (c)  A Stockholder's notice to the Secretary required by this Section
1 shall set forth as to each matter the Stockholder proposes to bring before the
