               in accordance with the provisions of Section 4.1. Company
               Contributions shall be allocated and deposited to the Company
               Contributions Accounts of Participants pursuant to the provisions
               of Sections 4.6 and 6.1.

               4.1, 6.1, and 7.3.

                     (9) The term "COMPENSATION" shall mean the total wages

               to the cash option election described in Section 4.2 and which a
               Participant elects to receive in cash, any amounts received under
               the Company's dependent scholarship program, and all non-cash
               remuneration; provided, however, that for Plan Years beginning on
               or after January 1, 1994, the annual Compensation of a
               Participant taken into account under the Plan shall not exceed
               the OBRA `93 annual compensation limit of $150,000, as adjusted
               for increases in the cost of living in accordance with the
               provisions of Section 401(a)(17)(B) of the Code. The cost of
               living in effect for a calendar year applies to any period, not
               exceeding 12 months, over which Compensation is determined (a
               "determination period") beginning in such calendar year. If a
               determination period consists of fewer than 12 months, the OBRA
               `93 annual compensation limit will be multiplied by a fraction,
               the numerator of which is the number of months in the
               determination period and the denominator of which is 12.

               modified by Section 401(a)(17) of the Code. If as a result of the
               application of such rules the adjusted Section 401(a)(17)
               limitation is exceeded, then the limitation shall be prorated in
               proportion to each such individual's compensation as determined
               under such paragraph prior to the application of such limitation.

                     (10)  The term "ELIGIBLE RETIREMENT PLAN" shall mean:

                           (a)    an individual retirement account described in
                                  Section 408(a) of the Code;

                           (d)    an annuity plan described in Section 403(a) of
                                  the Code.

               In the case of an Eligible Rollover Distribution to a beneficiary
               who is the Participant's surviving spouse, an Eligible Retirement
               Plan is only an individual retirement account or individual
               retirement annuity described in (a) or (b) above.

                     (11) The term "ELIGIBLE ROLLOVER DISTRIBUTION" shall mean

               or an alternate payee under a qualified domestic relations order;
               provided that such alternate payee is a Participant's spouse or
               former spouse; and provided further that such distribution is not
               (i) one of a series of substantially equal periodic payments made
               at least annually for a specified period of ten or more years or
