      Reserve for any week, such average rate shall be determined
      by the Administrative Agent on the basis of quotations
      received by it from three New York City negotiable




                                                                     3

      determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error)
      that it is unable to ascertain the Base CD Rate or Federal
      Funds Effective Rate, or both, for any reason, including,

      Alternate Base Rate shall be determined without regard to
      clause (b) or (c), or both, until the circumstances giving

      Lender under Regulation D.  Statutory Reserves shall be

      any change in any reserve percentage.

      corporation, association, joint venture, partnership or
      other business entity (whether now existing or hereafter

      time as of which any determination is being made, owned or
      controlled by such Person or one or more subsidiaries of




                                                                         18



      such Person or by such Person and one or more subsidiaries
      of such Person; provided that for purposes of Sections 6.1,
      6.2, 6.5, 6.7 and 6.8 hereof, Avis and its Subsidiaries
      shall be deemed not to be Subsidiaries of the Borrower.

            "364-Day Credit Agreement" shall mean the 364-Day
      Competitive Advance and Revolving Credit Agreement, dated as

      aggregate amount of the Lenders' Commitments as in effect at
      such time.

2.  THE LOANS

            SECTION 2.1.  Commitments.

            (a)  Subject to the terms and conditions hereof and
relying upon the representations and warranties herein set forth,
each Lender agrees, severally and not jointly, to make Revolving
Credit Loans to the Borrower, at any time and from time to time
on and after the Closing Date and until the earlier of the
Maturity Date and the termination of the Commitment of such
Lender, in an aggregate principal amount at any time outstanding
not to exceed such Lender's Commitment minus the sum of such
Lender's pro rata share of the then current L/C Exposure plus the
amount by which the Competitive Loans outstanding at such time
shall be deemed to have used such Lender's Commitment pursuant to
Section 2.18 subject, however, to the conditions that (a) at no
time shall (i) the sum of (A) the outstanding aggregate principal
amount of all Revolving Credit Loans made by all Lenders plus (B)
the then current L/C Exposure plus (C) the outstanding aggregate
principal amount of all Competitive Loans made by all Lenders
exceed (ii) the Total Commitment and (b) at all times the
outstanding aggregate principal amount of all Revolving Credit
Loans made by each Lender shall equal the product of (i) the
percentage that its Commitment represents of the Total Commitment
times (ii) the outstanding aggregate principal amount of all
Revolving Credit Loans made pursuant to a notice given by the
Borrower under Section 2.5.  The Commitments of the Lenders may
be terminated or reduced from time to time pursuant to Section
2.12 or Article 7.

            (b)  Within the foregoing limits, the Borrower may
borrow, pay or repay and reborrow hereunder, on and after the
Closing Date and prior to the Maturity Date, upon the terms and
subject to the conditions and limitations set forth herein.

            SECTION 2.2.  Loans.

            (a)  Each Revolving Credit Loan shall be made as part
of a Borrowing consisting of Loans made by the Lenders ratably in
accordance with their Commitments; provided, however, that the




                                                                          19



failure of any Lender to make any Revolving Credit Loan shall not
in itself relieve any other Lender of its obligation to lend
hereunder (it being understood, however, that no Lender shall be
responsible for the failure of any other Lender to make any Loan
required to be made by such other Lender).  Each Competitive Loan
shall be made in accordance with the procedures set forth in
Section 2.4.  The Revolving Credit Loans or Competitive Loans
comprising any Borrowing shall be (i) in the case of Competitive
Loans and LIBOR Loans, in an aggregate principal amount that is
an integral multiple of $5,000,000 and not less than $10,000,000
and (ii) in the case of ABR Loans, in an aggregate principal
amount that is an integral multiple of $500,000 and not less than
$5,000,000 (or if less, an aggregate principal amount equal to
the remaining balance of the available Total Commitment).

            (b)  Each Competitive Borrowing shall be comprised
entirely of LIBOR Competitive Loans or Fixed Rate Loans, and each
Revolving Credit Borrowing shall be comprised entirely of LIBOR
Revolving Credit Loans or ABR Loans, as the Borrower may request
pursuant to Section 2.4 or 2.5, as applicable.  Each Lender may
at its option make any LIBOR Loan by causing any domestic or
foreign branch or Affiliate of such Lender to make such Loan,
provided that any exercise of such option shall not affect the
obligation of the Borrower to repay such Loan in accordance with
the terms of this Agreement and the applicable Note.  Borrowings
of more than one Interest Rate Type may be outstanding at the
same time; provided, however, that the Borrower shall not be
entitled to request any Borrowing that, if made, would result in
an aggregate of more than 9 separate Revolving Credit Loans of
any Lender being outstanding hereunder at any one time.  For
purposes of the calculation required by the immediately preceding
sentence, LIBOR Revolving Credit Loans having different Interest
Periods, regardless of whether they commence on the same date,
shall be considered separate Loans and all Loans of a single
Interest Rate Type made on a single date shall be considered a
single Loan if such Loans have a common Interest Period.

            (c)  Subject to Section 2.6, each Lender shall make
each Loan to be made by it hereunder on the proposed date thereof
by making funds available at the offices of the Administrative.

shall be made by the Lender or Lenders whose Competitive Bids
therefor are accepted pursuant to Section 2.4 in the amounts so
accepted and Revolving Credit Loans shall be made by all the

Lenders pro rata in accordance with Section 2.1 and this Section
2.2.

            (d)  Notwithstanding any other provision of this
Agreement, the Borrower shall not be entitled to request any
Borrowing if the Interest Period requested with respect thereto
would end after the Maturity Date.

            SECTION 2.3.  Use of Proceeds.

              The proceeds of the Loans shall be used for working
capital and general corporate purposes of the Company and its
Subsidiaries, including, without limitation, for acquisitions,
support of the Borrower's commercial paper program and
refinancing of the Borrower's indebtedness under the Existing
Credit Agreement.

            SECTION 2.4.  Competitive Bid Procedure.

            (a)  In order to request Competitive Bids, the Borrower
shall hand deliver or telecopy to the Administrative Agent a duly
completed Competitive Bid Request in the form of Exhibit E-1, to
be received by the Administrative Agent (i) in the case of a
LIBOR Competitive Borrowing, not later than 10:00 a.m., New York
City time, four Business Days before a proposed Competitive
Borrowing and (ii) in the case of a Fixed Rate Borrowing, not
later than 10:00 a.m., New York City time, one Business Day
before a proposed Competitive Borrowing.  No ABR Loan shall be
requested in, or made pursuant to, a Competitive Bid Request.  A
Competitive Bid Request that does not conform substantially to
the format of Exhibit E-1 may be rejected in the Administrative
Agent's sole discretion, and the Administrative Agent shall
promptly notify the Borrower of such rejection by telecopier.
Such request for Competitive Bids shall in each case refer to
this Agreement and specify (i) whether the Borrowing then being
requested is to be a LIBOR Borrowing or a Fixed Rate Borrowing,
(ii) the date of such Borrowing (which shall be a Business Day)
and the aggregate principal amount thereof, which shall be in a
minimum principal amount of $10,000,000 and in an integral
multiple of $5,000,000, and (iii) the Interest Period with
respect thereto (which may not end after the Maturity Date).
Promptly after its receipt of a Competitive Bid Request that is
not rejected as aforesaid, the Administrative Agent shall invite
by telecopier (in the form set forth in Exhibit E-2) the Lenders
to bid, on the terms and subject to the conditions of this
Agreement, to make Competitive Loans pursuant to the Competitive
Bid Request.

            (b)  Each Lender may, in its sole discretion, make one
or more Competitive Bids to the Borrower responsive to a
Competitive Bid Request.  Each Competitive Bid by a Lender must
be received by the Administrative Agent via telecopier, in the
form of Exhibit E-3, (i) in the case of a LIBOR Competitive
Borrowing, not later than 9:30 a.m., New York City time, three




                                                                          21



Business Days before a proposed Competitive Borrowing and (ii) in
the case of a Fixed Rate Borrowing, not later than 9:30 a.m., New
York City time, on the day of a proposed Competitive Borrowing.
Multiple bids will be accepted by the Administrative Agent.
Competitive Bids that do not conform substantially to the format
of Exhibit E-3 may be rejected by the Administrative Agent after
conferring with, and upon the instruction of, the Borrower, and
the Administrative Agent shall notify the Lender making such
nonconforming bid of such rejection as soon as practicable.  Each
Competitive Bid shall refer to this Agreement and specify (i) the
principal amount (which shall be in a minimum principal amount of
$10,000,000 and in an integral multiple of $5,000,000 and which
may equal the entire principal amount of the Competitive
Borrowing requested by the Borrower) of the Competitive Loan or
Loans that the Lender is willing to make to the Borrower, (ii)
the Competitive Bid Rate or Rates at which the Lender is prepared
to make the Competitive Loan or Loans and (iii) the Interest
Period or Interest Periods with respect thereto.  If any Lender
shall elect not to make a Competitive Bid, such Lender shall so
notify the Administrative Agent via telecopier (i) in the case of
LIBOR Competitive Loans, not later than 9:30 a.m., New York City
time, three Business Days before a proposed Competitive Borrowing
and (ii) in the case of Fixed Rate Loans, not later than
9:30 a.m., New York City time, on the day of a proposed
Competitive Borrowing; provided, however, that failure by any
Lender to give such notice shall not cause such Lender to be
obligated to make any Competitive Loan as part of such proposed
Competitive Borrowing.  A Competitive Bid submitted by a Lender
pursuant to this paragraph (b) shall be irrevocable.

            (c)  The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the
Borrower by telecopier of all the Competitive Bids made, the
Competitive Bid Rate or Rates and the principal amount of each
Competitive Loan in respect of which a Competitive Bid was made
and the identity of the Lender that made each bid.  The
Administrative Agent shall send a copy of all Competitive Bids to
the Borrower for its records as soon as practicable after
completion of the bidding process set forth in this Section 2.4.

            (d)  The Borrower may in its sole and absolute
discretion, subject only to the provisions of this paragraph (d),
accept or reject any Competitive Bid referred to in paragraph (c)
above.  The Borrower shall notify the Administrative Agent by
telephone, promptly confirmed by telecopier in the form of a
Competitive Bid Accept/Reject Letter whether and to what extent
it has decided to accept or reject any or all of the bids
referred to in paragraph (c) above, (i) in the case of a LIBOR
Competitive Borrowing, not later than 10:30 a.m., New York City
time, three Business Days before a proposed Competitive Borrowing
and (ii) in the case of a Fixed Rate Borrowing, not later than
10:30 a.m., New York City time, on the day of a proposed
Competitive Borrowing; provided, however, that (A) the failure by
the Borrower to give such notice shall be deemed to be a
rejection of all the bids referred to in paragraph (c) above, (B)




                                                                          22



the Borrower shall not accept a bid made at a particular
Competitive Bid Rate if the Borrower has decided to reject a bid
made at a lower Competitive Bid Rate, (C) the aggregate amount of
the Competitive Bids accepted by the Borrower shall not exceed
the principal amount specified in the Competitive Bid Request,
(D) if the Borrower shall accept a bid or bids made at a
particular Competitive Bid Rate but the amount of such bid or
bids shall cause the total amount of bids to be accepted by the
Borrower to exceed the amount specified in the Competitive Bid
Request, then the Borrower shall accept a portion of such bid or
bids in an amount equal to the amount specified in the
Competitive Bid Request less the amount of all other Competitive
Bids accepted at lower Competitive Bid Rates with respect to such
Competitive Bid Request (it being understood that acceptance in
the case of multiple bids at such Competitive Bid Rate, shall be
made pro rata in accordance with the amount of each such bid at
such Competitive Bid Rate) and (E) except pursuant to clause (D)
above, no bid shall be accepted for a Competitive Loan unless
such Competitive Loan is in a minimum principal amount of
$10,000,000 and an integral multiple of $5,000,000; provided
further, however, that if a Competitive Loan must be in an amount
less than $10,000,000 because of the provisions of clause (D)
above, such Competitive Loan shall be in a minimum principal
amount of $1,000,000 or any integral multiple thereof, and in
calculating the pro rata allocation of acceptances of portions of
multiple bids at a particular Competitive Bid Rate pursuant to
clause (D), the amounts shall be rounded to integral multiples of
$1,000,000 in a manner that shall be in the discretion of the
Borrower.  A notice given by the Borrower pursuant to this
paragraph (d) shall be irrevocable.

            (e)  The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify
each bidding Lender whether its Competitive Bid has been accepted
(and if so, in what amount and at what Competitive Bid Rate) by
telecopy sent by the Administrative Agent, and each successful
bidder will thereupon become bound, subject to the other
applicable conditions hereof, to make the Competitive Loan in
respect of which its bid has been accepted.

            (f)  A Competitive Bid Request shall not be made within
four Business Days after the date of any previous Competitive Bid
Request, or such shorter period as may be agreed upon by the
Borrower and the Administrative Agent.

            (g)  If the Administrative Agent shall elect to submit
a Competitive Bid in its capacity as a Lender, it shall submit
such bid directly to the Borrower one quarter of an hour earlier
than the latest time at which the other Lenders are required to
submit their bids to the Administrative Agent pursuant to
paragraph (b) above.

            (h)  All notices required by this Section 2.4 shall be
given in accordance with Section 9.1.





                                                                         23



            (i)  Notwithstanding any other provision of this
Agreement, the Borrower shall not be entitled to request any
Competitive Loans unless at the time the Borrower has a senior
unsecured long-term debt rating of BBB- or better from S&P or
Baa3 or better from Moody's.


            SECTION 2.5.  Revolving Credit Borrowing Procedure.

            In order to effect a Revolving Credit Borrowing, the
Borrower shall hand deliver or telecopy to the Administrative
Agent a Borrowing notice in the form of Exhibit F (a) in the case
of a LIBOR Borrowing, not later than 12:00 (noon), New York City
time, three Business Days before a proposed Borrowing, and (b) in
the case of an ABR Borrowing, not later than 12:00 (noon), New
York City time, on the day of a proposed Borrowing.  No Fixed
Rate Loan shall be requested or made pursuant to a Revolving
Credit Borrowing Request.  Such notice shall be irrevocable and
shall in each case specify (a) whether the Borrowing then being
requested is to be a LIBOR Borrowing or an ABR Borrowing, (b) the
date of such Revolving Credit Borrowing (which shall be a
Business Day) and the amount thereof and (c) if such Borrowing is
to be a LIBOR Borrowing, the Interest Period with respect
thereto.  If no election as to the Interest Rate Type of a
Revolving Credit Borrowing is specified in any such notice, then
the requested Revolving Credit Borrowing shall be an ABR
Borrowing.  If no Interest Period with respect to any LIBOR
Borrowing is specified in any such notice, then the Borrower
shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one
month's duration.  If the Borrower shall not have given notice in
accordance with this Section 2.5 of its election to refinance a
Revolving Credit Borrowing prior to the end of the Interest
Period in effect for such Borrowing, then the Borrower shall
(unless such Borrowing is repaid at the end of such Interest
Period) be deemed to have given notice of an election to
refinance such Borrowing with an ABR Borrowing.  The
Administrative Agent shall promptly advise the Lenders of any
notice given pursuant to this Section 2.5 and of each Lender's
portion of the requested Borrowing.

            SECTION 2.6.  Refinancings.

            The Borrower may refinance all or any part of any
Borrowing with a Borrowing of the same or a different Interest
Rate Type made pursuant to Section 2.4 or pursuant to a notice
under Section 2.5, subject to the conditions and limitations set
forth herein and elsewhere in this Agreement, including
refinancings of Competitive Borrowings with Revolving Credit
Borrowings and Revolving Credit Borrowings with Competitive
Borrowings; provided, however, that at any time after the
occurrence, and during the continuation, of a Default or an Event
of Default, a Revolving Credit Borrowing or portion thereof may
only be refinanced with an ABR Borrowing.  Any Borrowing or part
thereof so refinanced shall be deemed to be repaid in accordance





with Section 2.8 with the proceeds of a new Borrowing hereunder
and the proceeds of the new Borrowing, to the extent they do not
exceed the principal amount of the Borrowing being refinanced,
shall not be paid by the Lenders to the Administrative Agent or
by the Administrative Agent to the Borrower pursuant to Section
2.2(c); provided, however, that (a) if the principal amount
extended by a Lender in a refinancing is greater than the
principal amount extended by such Lender in the Borrowing being
refinanced, then such Lender shall pay such difference to the
Administrative Agent for distribution to the Borrower or any
Lenders described in clause (b) below, as applicable, (b) if the
principal amount extended by a Lender in the Borrowing being
refinanced is greater than the principal amount being extended by
such Lender in the refinancing, the Administrative Agent shall
return the difference to such Lender out of amounts received
pursuant to clause (a) above, and (c) to the extent any Lender
fails to pay the Administrative Agent amounts due from it
pursuant to clause (a) above, any Loan or portion thereof being
refinanced with such amounts shall not be deemed repaid in
accordance with Section 2.6 and, to the extent of such failure,
the Borrower shall pay such amount to the Administrative Agent as
required by Section 2.10; and (d) to the extent the Borrower
fails to pay to the Administrative Agent any amounts due in
accordance with Section 2.10 as a result of the failure of a
Lender to pay the Administrative Agent any amounts due as
described in clause (c) above, the portion of any refinanced Loan
deemed not repaid shall be deemed to be outstanding solely to the
Lender which has failed to pay the Administrative Agent amounts
due from it pursuant to clause (a) above to the full extent of
such Lender's portion of such Loan.

            SECTION 2.7.  Fees.

            (a)  The Borrower agrees to pay to each Lender, through
the Administrative Agent, on each March 31, June 30, September 30
and December 31, commencing December 31, 1996, and on the date on
which the Commitment of such Lender shall be terminated as
provided herein, a facility fee (a "Facility Fee",) at the rate
per annum from time to time in effect in accordance with Section
2.22, on the amount of the Commitment of such Lender, whether
used or unused, during the preceding quarter (or shorter period
commencing with the Closing Date, or ending with the Maturity
Date or any date on which the Commitment of such Lender shall be
terminated).  All Facility Fees shall be computed on the basis of
the actual number of days elapsed in a year of 360 days.  The
Facility Fee due to each Lender shall commence to accrue on the
Closing Date, shall be payable in arrears and shall cease to
accrue on the earlier of the Maturity Date and the termination of
the Commitment of such Lender as provided herein.

            (b)  The Borrower agrees to pay the Administrative
Agent, for its own account, the fees at the times and in the
amounts provided for in the letter agreement dated August 28,
1996 among the Borrower, Chase and Chase Securities Inc.




                                                                          25




            (c)  All fees shall be paid on the dates due, in
immediately available funds, to the Administrative Agent for
distribution, if and as appropriate, among the Lenders.  Once
paid, none of the fees shall be refundable under any
circumstances.

            SECTION 2.8.  Repayment of Loans; Evidence of Debt.

            (a) The Borrower hereby unconditionally promises to pay
to the Administrative Agent for the account of each Lender the
then unpaid principal amount of each Revolving Credit Loan of
such Lender on the Maturity Date (or such earlier date on which
the Revolving Credit Loans become due and payable pursuant to
Article 7).  The Borrower hereby further agrees to pay interest
on the unpaid principal amount of the Revolving Credit Loans from
time to time outstanding from the date hereof until payment in
full thereof at the rates per annum, and on the dates, set forth
in Section 2.9.

            (b) The Borrower unconditionally promises to pay to the
Administrative Agent, for the account of each Lender that makes a
Competitive Loan, on the last day of the Interest Period
applicable to such Competitive Loan, the principal amount of such
Competitive Loan.  The Borrower further unconditionally promises
to pay interest on each such Competitive Loan for the period from
and including the date of Borrowing of such Competitive Loan on
the unpaid principal amount thereof from time to time outstanding
at the applicable rate per annum determined as provided in, and
payable as specified in, Section 2.9.

            (c)  Each Lender shall maintain in accordance with its
usual practice an account or accounts evidencing indebtedness of
the Borrower to such Lender resulting from each Revolving Credit
Loan and Competitive Loan of such Lender from time to time,
including the amounts of principal and interest payable and paid
to such Lender from time to time under this Agreement.

            (d)  The Administrative Agent shall maintain the
Register pursuant to Section 9.3(e), and a subaccount therein for
each Lender, in which shall be recorded (i) the amount of each
Revolving Credit Loan and Competitive Loan made hereunder, the
Interest Rate Type thereof and each Interest Period applicable
thereto, (ii) the amount of any principal or interest due and
payable or to become due and payable from the Borrower to each
Lender hereunder and (iii) both the amount of any sum received by
the Administrative Agent hereunder from the Borrower and each
Lender's share thereof.

            (e)  The entries made in the Register and the accounts
of each Lender maintained pursuant to Section 2.8 shall, to the
extent permitted by applicable law, be prima facie evidence of
the existence and amounts of the obligations of the Borrower
therein recorded; provided, however, that the failure of any
Lender or the Administrative Agent to maintain the Register or




                                                                          26



any such account, or any error therein, shall not in any manner
affect the obligation of the Borrower to repay (with applicable
interest) the Revolving Credit Loans and Competitive Loans made
to the Borrower by such Lender in accordance with the terms of
this Agreement.

            (f)  The Borrower agrees that, upon the request to the
Administrative Agent by any Lender, the Borrower will execute and
deliver to such Lender a promissory note of the Borrower
evidencing the Revolving Credit Loans of such Lender,
substantially in the form of Exhibit A-1 with appropriate
insertions as to date and principal amount (a "Revolving Credit
Note").

            (g)  The Borrower agrees that, upon the request to the
Administrative Agent by any Lender, the Borrower will execute and
deliver to such Lender a promissory note of the Borrower
evidencing the Competitive Loans of such Lender, substantially in
the form of Exhibit A-2 with appropriate insertions as to date
and principal amount (a "Competitive Note").

            SECTION 2.9.  Interest on Loans.

            (a)  Subject to the provisions of Section 2.10, the
Loans comprising each LIBOR Borrowing shall bear interest
(computed on the basis of the actual number of days elapsed over
a year of 360 days) at a rate per annum equal to (i) in the case
of each LIBOR Revolving Credit Loan, LIBOR for the Interest
Period in effect for such Borrowing plus the applicable LIBOR
Spread from time to time in effect and (ii) in the case of each
LIBOR Competitive Loan, LIBOR for the Interest Period in effect
for such Borrowing plus the Margin offered by the Lender making
such Loan and accepted by the Borrower pursuant to Section 2.5.
Interest on each LIBOR Borrowing shall be payable on each
applicable Interest Payment Date.

            (b)  Subject to the provisions of Section 2.10, the
Loans comprising each ABR Borrowing shall bear interest (computed
on the basis of the actual number of days elapsed over a year of
365 or 366 days, as the case may be, when determined by reference
to the Prime Rate and over a year of 360 days at all other times)
at a rate per annum equal to the Alternate Base Rate.

            (c)  Subject to the provisions of Section 2.10, each
Fixed Rate Loan shall bear interest at a rate per annum (computed
on the basis of the actual number of days elapsed over a year of
360 days) equal to the fixed rate of interest offered by the
Lender making such Loan and accepted by the Borrower pursuant to
Section 2.4.

            (d)  Interest on each Loan shall be payable in arrears
on each Interest Payment Date applicable to such Loan.  The LIBOR
or the Alternate Base Rate for each Interest Period or day within
an Interest Period shall be determined by the Administrative




                                                                          27



Agent, and such determination shall be conclusive absent manifest
error.

            SECTION 2.10.  Interest on Overdue Amounts.

            If the Borrower shall default in the payment of the
principal of, or interest on, any Loan or any other amount
becoming due hereunder, the Borrower shall on demand from time to
time pay interest, to the extent permitted by Applicable Law, on
such defaulted amount up to (but not including) the date of
actual payment (after as well as before judgment) at a rate per
annum computed on the basis of the actual number of days elapsed
over a year of 365 or 366 days, as applicable, in the case of
amounts bearing interest determined by reference to the Prime
Rate and a year of 360 days in all other cases, equal to (a) in
the case of the remainder of the then current Interest Period for
any LIBOR Loan or Fixed Rate Loan, the rate applicable to such
Loan under Section 2.9 plus 2% per annum and (b) in the case of
any other amount, the rate that would at the time be applicable
to an ABR Loan under Section 2.9 plus 2% per annum.

            SECTION 2.11.  Alternate Rate of Interest.

            In the event, and on each occasion, that on the day two
Business Days prior to the commencement of any Interest Period
for a LIBOR Loan, the Administrative Agent shall have determined
that Dollar deposits in the amount of the requested principal
amount of such LIBOR are not generally available in the London
Interbank Market, or that the rate at which such Dollar deposits
are being offered will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost
to any Lender of making or maintaining its portion of such LIBOR
Loans during such Interest Period, or that reasonable means do
not exist for ascertaining LIBOR, the Administrative Agent shall,
as soon as practicable thereafter, give written or telecopier
notice of such determination to the Borrower and the Lenders.  In
the event of any such determination, until the Administrative
Agent shall have determined that circumstances giving rise to
such notice no longer exist, (a) any request by the Borrower for
a LIBOR Competitive Borrowing pursuant to Section 2.4 shall be of
no force and effect and shall be denied by the Administrative
Agent and (b) any request by the Borrower for a LIBOR Borrowing
pursuant to Section 2.5 shall be deemed to be a request for an
ABR Loan.  Each determination by the Administrative Agent
hereunder shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

            SECTION 2.12.  Termination and Reduction of
Commitments.

            (a)  The Commitments of all of the Lenders shall be
automatically terminated on the earlier of (a) the Maturity Date
or (b) October 31, 1996 if the Closing Date has not occurred on
or prior to such date.





                                                                          28



            (b)  Subject to Section 2.13(b), upon at least three
Business Days, prior irrevocable written or telecopy notice to
the Administrative Agent, the Borrower may at any time in whole
permanently terminate, or from time to time in part permanently
reduce, the Total Commitment; provided, however, that (i) each
partial reduction of the Total Commitment shall be in an integral
multiple of $5,000,000 and in a minimum principal amount of
$10,000,000 and (ii) the Borrower shall not be entitled to make
any such termination or reduction that would reduce the Total
Commitment to an amount less than the sum of the aggregate
outstanding principal amount of the Loans plus the then current
L/C Exposure.

            (c)  Each reduction in the Total Commitment hereunder
shall be made ratably among the Lenders in accordance with their
respective Commitments.  The Borrower shall pay to the
Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders on the date
of each termination or reduction in the Total Commitment, the
Facility Fees on the amount of the Total Commitment so terminated
or reduced accrued to the date of such termination or reduction.

            SECTION 2.13.  Prepayment of Loans.

            (a)  Prior to the Maturity Date, the Borrower shall
have the right at any time to prepay any Revolving Credit
Borrowing, in whole or in part, subject to the requirements of
Section 2.17 but otherwise without premium or penalty, upon prior
written or telecopy notice to the Administrative Agent before
12:00 noon New York City time at least one Business Day in the
case of an ABR Loan and at least three Business Days in the case
of a LIBOR Loan; provided, however, that each such partial
prepayment shall be in an integral multiple of $5,000,000 and in
a minimum aggregate principal amount of $10,000,000.  The
Borrower shall not have the right to prepay any Competitive
Borrowing without the consent of the relevant lender.

            (b)  On any date when the sum of the aggregate
outstanding Loans (after giving effect to any Borrowings effected
on such date) plus the then current L/C Exposure exceeds the
Total Commitment, the Borrower shall make a mandatory prepayment
of the Revolving Credit Loans in such amount as may be necessary
so that the aggregate amount of outstanding Loans plus the then
current L/C Exposure after giving effect to such prepayment does
not exceed the Total Commitment then in effect.  Any prepayments
required by this paragraph shall be applied to outstanding ABR
Loans up to the full amount thereof before they are applied to
outstanding LIBOR Revolving Credit Loans.

            (c)  Each notice of prepayment pursuant to Section
2.13(a) shall specify the specific Borrowing(s), the prepayment
date and the aggregate principal amount of each Borrowing to be
prepaid, shall be irrevocable and shall commit the Borrower to
prepay such Borrowing(s) by the amount stated therein.  All
prepayments under this Section 2.13 shall be accompanied by




                                                                          29



accrued interest on the principal amount being prepaid, to the
date of prepayment.

            SECTION 2.14.  Eurodollar Reserve Costs.

            The Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent for
the account of each Lender, so long as such Lender shall be
required under regulations of the Board to maintain reserves with
respect to liabilities or assets consisting of, or including,
Eurocurrency Liabilities (as defined in Regulation D of the
Board), additional interest on the unpaid principal amount of
each LIBOR Loan made to the Borrower by such Lender, from the
date of such Loan until such Loan is paid in full, at an interest
rate per annum equal at all times during the Interest Period for
such Loan to the remainder obtained by subtracting (i) LIBOR for
such Interest Period from (ii) the rate obtained by multiplying
LIBOR as referred to in clause (i) above by the Statutory
Reserves of such Lender for such Interest Period.  Such
additional interest shall be determined by such Lender and
notified to the Borrower (with a copy to the Administrative
Agent) not later than five Business Days before the next Interest
Payment Date for such Loan, and such additional interest so
notified to the Borrower by any Lender shall be payable to the
Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender on each
Interest Payment Date for such Loan.

            SECTION 2.15.  Reserve Requirements; Change in
Circumstances.

            (a)  Notwithstanding any other provision herein, if
after the date of this Agreement any change in Applicable Law or
regulation or in the interpretation or administration thereof by
any Governmental Authority charged with the interpretation or
administration thereof (whether or not having the force of law)
(i) shall subject any Lender to, or increase the net amount of,
any tax, levy, impost, duty, charge, fee, deduction or
withholding with respect to any LIBOR Loan or Fixed Rate Loan, or
shall change the basis of taxation of payments to any Lender of
the principal of or interest on any LIBOR Loan or Fixed Rate Loan
made by such Lender or any other fees or amounts payable
hereunder (other than (x) taxes imposed on the overall net income
of such Lender by the jurisdiction in which such Lender has its
principal office or its applicable Lending Office or by any
political subdivision or taxing authority therein (or any tax
which is enacted or adopted by such jurisdiction, political
subdivision or taxing authority as a direct substitute for any
such taxes) or (y) any tax, assessment, or other governmental
charge that would not have been imposed but for the failure of
any Lender to comply with any certification, information,
documentation or other reporting requirement), (ii) shall impose,
modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit or similar
requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account
of, or credit extended by, any Lender, or (iii) shall impose on
any Lender or the London Interbank Market any other condition




                                                                          30



affecting this Agreement or any LIBOR Loan or Fixed Rate Loan
made by such Lender, and the result of any of the foregoing shall
be to increase the cost to such Lender of making or maintaining
any LIBOR Loan or Fixed Rate Loan or to reduce the amount of any
sum received or receivable by such Lender hereunder (whether of
principal, interest or otherwise) in respect thereof by an amount
deemed in good faith by such Lender to be material, then the
Borrower shall pay such additional amount or amounts as will
compensate such Lender for such increase or reduction to such
Lender upon demand by such Lender.

            (b)  If, after the date of this Agreement, any Lender
shall have determined in good faith that the adoption after the
date hereof of any applicable law, rule, regulation or guideline
regarding capital adequacy, or any change therein, or any change
in the interpretation or administration thereof by any
Governmental Authority, central bank or comparable agency charged
with the interpretation or administration thereof, or compliance
by any Lender (or any Lending Office of such Lender) with any
request or directive regarding capital adequacy (whether or not
having the force of law) of any such Governmental Authority,
central bank or comparable agency, has or would have the effect
of reducing the rate of return on such Lender's capital or on the
capital of the Lender's holding company, if any, as a consequence
of its obligations hereunder to a level below that which such
Lender (or its holding company) could have achieved but for such
applicability, adoption, change or compliance (taking into
consideration such Lender's policies or the policies of its
holding company, as the case may be, with respect to capital
adequacy) by an amount deemed by such Lender to be material,
then, from time to time, the Borrower shall pay to the
Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender such
additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender for
such reduction upon demand by such Lender.

            (c)  A certificate of a Lender setting forth in
reasonable detail (i) such amount or amounts as shall be
necessary to compensate such Lender as specified in paragraph (a)
or (b) above, as the case may be, and (ii) the calculation of
such amount or amounts referred to in the preceding clause (i),
shall be delivered to the Borrower and shall be conclusive absent
manifest error.  The Borrower shall pay the Administrative Agent
for the account of such Lender the amount shown as due on any
such certificate within 10 Business Days after its receipt of the
same.

            (d)  Failure on the part of any Lender to demand
compensation for any increased costs or reduction in amounts
received or receivable or reduction in return on capital with
respect to any Interest Period shall not constitute a waiver of
such Lender's rights to demand compensation for any increased
costs or reduction in amounts received or receivable or reduction
in return on capital with respect to such Interest Period or any
other Interest Period.  The protection of this Section 2.14 shall




                                                                          31



be available to each Lender regardless of any possible contention
of invalidity or inapplicability of the law, regulation or
condition which shall have been imposed.

            (e)  Each Lender agrees that, as promptly as
practicable after it becomes aware of the occurrence of an event
or the existence of a condition that (i) would cause it to incur
any increased cost under this Section 2.15, Section 2.16, Section
2.21 or Section 2.24(g) or (ii) would require the Borrower to pay
an increased amount under this Section 2.15, Section 2.16,
Section 2.21 or Section 2.24(g), it will use reasonable efforts
to notify the Borrower of such event or condition and, to the
extent not inconsistent with such Lender's internal policies,
will use its reasonable efforts to make, fund or maintain the
affected Loans of such Lender, or, if applicable to participate
in Letters of Credit, through another Lending Office of such
Lender if as a result thereof the additional monies which would
otherwise be required to be paid or the reduction of amounts
receivable by such Lender thereunder in respect of such Loans or
Letters of Credit would be materially reduced, or any inability
to perform would cease to exist, or the increased costs which
would otherwise be required to be paid in respect of such Loans
or Letters of Credit pursuant to this Section 2.15, Section 2.16,
Section 2.21 or Section 2.24(g) would be materially reduced or
the taxes or other amounts otherwise payable under this Section
2.15, Section 2.16, Section 2.21 or Section 2.24(g) would be
materially reduced, and if, as determined by such Lender, in its
sole discretion, the making, funding or maintaining of such Loans
or Letters of Credit through such other Lending Office would not
otherwise materially adversely affect such Loans or Letters of
Credit or such Lender.

            (f)  In the event any Lender shall have delivered to
the Borrower a notice that LIBOR Loans are no longer available
from such Lender pursuant to Section 2.16, that amounts are due
to such Lender pursuant to paragraph (c) hereof or that any of
the events designated in paragraph (e) hereof have occurred, the
Borrower may (but subject in any such case to the payments
required by Section 2.17), provided that there shall exist no
Default or Event of Default, upon at least five Business Days'
prior written or telecopier notice to such Lender and the
Administrative Agent, but not more than 30 days after receipt of
notice from such Lender, identify to the Administrative Agent a
lending institution reasonably acceptable to the Administrative
Agent which will purchase the Commitment, the amount of
outstanding Loans and any participations in Letters of Credit
from the Lender providing such notice and such Lender shall
thereupon assign its Commitment, any Loans owing to such Lender
and any participations in Letters of Credit and the Notes held by
such Lender to such replacement lending institution pursuant to
Section 9.3.  Such notice shall specify an effective date for
such assignment and at the time thereof, the Borrower shall pay
all accrued interest, Facility Fees and all other amounts
(including without limitation all amounts payable under this




                                                                          32



Section) owing hereunder to such Lender as at such effective date
for such assignment.

            SECTION 2.16.  Change in Legality.

            (a)  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein
contained, if any change in any law or regulation or in the
interpretation thereof by any Governmental Authority charged with
the administration or interpretation thereof shall make it
unlawful for any Lender to make or maintain any LIBOR Loan or to
give effect to its obligations as contemplated hereby, then, by
written notice to the Borrower and to the Administrative Agent,
such Lender may:

             (i)        declare that LIBOR Loans will not thereafter be
      made by such Lender hereunder, whereupon such Lender shall
      not submit a Competitive Bid in response to a request for
      LIBOR Competitive Loans and the Borrower shall be prohibited
      from requesting LIBOR Revolving Credit Loans from such
      Lender hereunder unless such declaration is subsequently
      withdrawn; and

            (ii)        require that all outstanding LIBOR Loans made by
      it be converted to ABR Loans, in which event (A) all such
      LIBOR Loans shall be automatically converted to ABR Loans as
      of the effective date of such notice as provided in Section
      2.16(b) and (B) all payments and prepayments of principal
      which would otherwise have been applied to repay the
      converted LIBOR Loans shall instead be applied to repay the
      ABR Loans resulting from the conversion of such LIBOR Loans.

            (b)  For purposes of this Section 2.16, a notice to the
Borrower by any Lender pursuant to Section 2.16(a) shall be
effective on the date of receipt thereof by the Borrower.

            SECTION 2.17.  Reimbursement of Lenders.

            (a)  The Borrower shall reimburse each Lender on demand
for any loss incurred or to be incurred by it in the reemployment
of the funds released (i) by any prepayment (for any reason) of
any LIBOR or Fixed Rate Loan if such Loan is repaid other than on
the last day of the applicable Interest Period for such Loan or
(ii) in the event that after the Borrower delivers a notice of
borrowing under Section 2.5 in respect of LIBOR Revolving Credit
Loans or a Competitive Bid Accept/Reject Letter under Section
2.4(d), pursuant to which it has accepted bids of one or more of
the Lenders, the applicable Loan is not made on the first day of
the Interest Period specified by the Borrower for any reason
other than (I) a suspension or limitation under Section 2.16 of
the right of the Borrower to select a LIBOR Loan or (II) a breach
by a Lender of its obligations hereunder.  In the case of such
failure to borrow, such loss shall be the amount as reasonably
determined by such Lender as the excess, if any of (A) the amount
of interest which would have accrued to such Lender on the amount



                                                                      33



not borrowed, at a rate of interest equal to the interest rate
applicable to such Loan pursuant to Section 2.9, for the period
from the date of such failure to borrow, to the last day of the
Interest Period for such Loan which would have commenced on the
date of such failure to borrow, over (B) the amount realized by
such Lender in reemploying the funds not advanced during the
period referred to above.  In the case of a payment other than on
the last day of the Interest Period for a Loan, such loss shall
be the amount as reasonably determined by the Administrative
Agent as the excess, if any, of (A) the amount of interest which
would have accrued on the amount so paid at a rate of interest
equal to the interest rate applicable to such Loan pursuant to
Section 2.9, for the period from the date of such payment to the
last day of the then current daily Interest Period for such Loan,
over (B) the amount equal to the product of (x) the amount of the
Loan so paid times (y) the current daily yield on U.S. Treasury
Securities (at such date of determination) with maturities
approximately equal to the remaining Interest Period for such
Loan times (z) the number of days remaining in the Interest
Period for such Loan.  Each Lender shall deliver to the Borrower
from time to time one or more certificates setting forth the
amount of such loss (and in reasonable detail the manner of
computation thereof) as determined by such Lender, which
certificates shall be conclusive absent manifest error.  The
Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of
each Lender the amount shown as due on any certificate within
thirty (30) days after its receipt of the same.

            (b)  In the event the Borrower fails to prepay any Loan
on the date specified in any prepayment notice delivered pursuant
to Section 2.13(a), the Borrower on demand by any Lender shall
pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender
any amounts required to compensate such Lender for any loss
incurred by such Lender as a result of such failure to prepay,
including, without limitation, any loss, cost or expenses
incurred by reason of the acquisition of deposits or other funds
by such Lender to fulfill deposit obligations incurred in
anticipation of such prepayment.  Each Lender shall deliver to
the Borrower and the Administrative Agent from time to time one
or more certificates setting forth the amount of such loss (and
in reasonable detail the manner of computation thereof) as
determined by such Lender, which certificates shall be conclusive
absent manifest error.

            SECTION 2.18.  Pro Rata Treatment.

            Except as permitted under Sections 2.14, 2.15(c), 2.16,
2.17 and 2.23, (i) each Revolving Credit Borrowing, each payment
or prepayment of principal of any Revolving Credit Borrowing,
each payment of interest on the Revolving Credit Loans, each
payment of the Facility Fees, each reduction of the Total
Commitment and each refinancing of any Borrowing with, or
conversion of any Borrowing to, a Revolving Credit Borrowing, or
continuation of any Borrowing as a Revolving Credit Borrowing,



                                                                         34



shall be allocated pro rata among the Lenders in accordance with
their respective Commitments (or, if such Commitments shall have
expired or been terminated, in accordance with the respective
principal amount of their outstanding Revolving Credit Loans).
Each payment of principal of any Competitive Borrowing shall be
allocated pro rata among the Lenders participating in such
Borrowing in accordance with the respective principal amounts of
their outstanding Competitive Loans comprising such Borrowing.
Each payment of interest on any Competitive Borrowing shall be
allocated pro rata among the Lenders participating in such
Borrowing in accordance with the respective amounts of accrued
and unpaid interest on their outstanding Competitive Loans
comprising such Borrowing.  For purposes of determining the
available Commitments of the Lenders at any time, each
outstanding Competitive Borrowing shall be deemed to have
utilized the Commitments of the Lenders (including those Lenders
that shall not have made Loans as part of such Competitive
Borrowing) pro rata in accordance with such respective
Commitments.  Each Lender agrees that in computing such Lender's
portion of any Borrowing to be made hereunder, the Administrative
Agent may, in its discretion, round each Lender's percentage of
such Borrowing computed in accordance with Section 2.1, to the
next higher or lower whole dollar amount.

            SECTION 2.19.  Right of Setoff.

            If any Event of Default shall have occurred and be
continuing and any Lender shall have requested the Administrative
Agent to declare the Loans immediately due and payable pursuant
to Article 7, each Lender is hereby authorized at any time and
from time to time, to the fullest extent permitted by Applicable
Law, to set off and apply any and all deposits (general or
special, time or demand, provisional or final) at any time held
by such Lender and any other indebtedness at any time owing by
such Lender to, or for the credit or the account of, the
Borrower, against any of and all the obligations now or hereafter
existing under this Agreement and the Loans held by such Lender,
irrespective of whether or not such Lender shall have made any
demand under this Agreement or such Loans and although such
Obligations may be unmatured.  Each Lender agrees promptly to
notify the Borrower after any such setoff and application made by
such Lender, but the failure to give such notice shall not affect
the validity of such setoff and application.  The rights of each
Lender under this Section 2.19 are in addition to other rights
and remedies (including other rights of setoff) which such Lender
may have.

            SECTION 2.20.  Manner of Payments.

            All payments by the Borrower hereunder and under the
Notes shall be made in Dollars in Federal or other immediately
available funds at the office of the Administrative Agent's Agent
Bank Services Department, 140 East 45th Street, New York, New
York 10017, Attention:  Sandra Miklave, for credit to HFS




                                                                          35



Incorporated Clearing Account, Account No. 144812905 (Reference:
HFS Incorporated Credit Agreement dated October 2, 1996) no later
than 12:00 noon, New York City time, on the date on which such
payment shall be due.  Interest in respect of any Loan hereunder
shall accrue from and including the date of such Loan to, but
excluding, the date on which such Loan is paid or refinanced with
a Loan of a different Interest Rate Type.

            SECTION 2.21.  United States Withholding.

            (a)  Prior to the date of the initial Loans hereunder,
and from time to time thereafter if requested by the Borrower or
the Administrative Agent or required because, as a result of a
change in Applicable Law or a change in circumstances or
otherwise, a previously delivered form or statement becomes
incomplete or incorrect in any material respect, each Lender
organized under the laws of a jurisdiction outside the United
States shall provide, if applicable, the Administrative Agent and
the Borrower with complete, accurate and duly executed forms or
other statements prescribed by the Internal Revenue Service of
the United States certifying such Lender's exemption from, or
entitlement to a reduced rate of, United States withholding taxes
(including backup withholding taxes) with respect to all payments
to be made to such Lender hereunder and under the Notes.

            (b)  The Borrower and the Administrative Agent shall be
entitled to deduct and withhold any and all present or future
taxes or withholdings, and all liabilities with respect thereto,
from payments hereunder or under the Notes, if and to the extent
that the Borrower or the Administrative Agent in good faith
determines that such deduction or withholding is required by the
law of the United States, including, without limitation, any
applicable treaty of the United States.  In the event the
Borrower or the Administrative Agent shall so determine that
deduction or withholding of taxes is required, it shall advise
the affected Lender as to the basis of such determination prior
to actually deducting and withholding such taxes.  In the event
the Borrower or the Administrative Agent shall so deduct or
withhold taxes from amounts payable hereunder, it (i) shall pay
to or deposit with the appropriate taxing authority in a timely
manner the full amount of taxes it has deducted or withheld; (ii)
shall provide evidence of payment of such taxes to, or the
deposit thereof with, the appropriate taxing authority and a
statement setting forth the amount of taxes deducted or withheld,
the applicable rate, and any other information or documentation
reasonably requested by the Lenders from whom the taxes were
deducted or withheld; and (iii) shall forward to such Lenders any
receipt for such payment or deposit of the deducted or withheld
taxes as may be issued from time to time by the appropriate
taxing authority.  Unless the Borrower and the Administrative
Agent have received forms or other documents satisfactory to them
indicating that payments hereunder or under the Notes are not
subject to United States withholding tax or are subject to such
tax at a rate reduced by an applicable tax treaty, the Borrower




                                                                         36



or the Administrative Agent may withhold taxes from such payments
at the applicable statutory rate in the case of payments to or
for any Lender organized under the laws of a jurisdiction outside
the United States.

            (c)  Each Lender agrees (i) that as between it and the
Borrower or the Administrative Agent, it shall be the Person to
deduct and withhold taxes, and to the extent required by law it
shall deduct and withhold taxes, on amounts that such Lender may
remit to any other Person(s) by reason of any undisclosed
transfer or assignment of an interest in this Agreement to such
other Person(s) pursuant to paragraph (g) of Section 9.3 and (ii)
to indemnify the Borrower and the Administrative Agent and any
officers, directors, agents, or employees of the Borrower or the
Administrative Agent against, and to hold them harmless from, any
tax, interest, additions to tax, penalties, reasonable counsel
and accountants' fees, disbursements or payments arising from the
assertion by any appropriate taxing authority of any claim
against them relating to a failure to withhold taxes as required
by Applicable Law with respect to amounts described in clause (i)
of this paragraph (c).

            (d)  Each assignee of a Lender's interest in this
Agreement in conformity with Section 9.3 shall be bound by this
Section 2.21, so that such assignee will have all of the
obligations and provide all of the forms and statements and all
indemnities, representations and warranties required to be given
under this Section 2.21.

            (e)  In the event that any withholding taxes shall
become payable solely as a result of any change in any statute,
treaty, ruling, determination or regulation occurring after the
Initial Date in respect of any sum payable hereunder or under any
other Fundamental Document to any Lender or the Administrative
Agent (i) the sum payable by the Borrower shall be increased as
may be necessary so that after making all required deductions
(including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under
this Section 2.21) such Lender or the Administrative Agent (as
the case may be) receives an amount equal to the sum it would
have received had no such deductions been made, (ii) the Borrower
shall make such deductions and (iii) the Borrower shall pay the
full amount deducted to the relevant taxation authority or other
authority in accordance with Applicable Law.  For purposes of
this Section 2.21, the term "Initial Date" shall mean (i) in the

            SECTION 2.22.  Certain Pricing Adjustments.

            The Facility Fee and the applicable LIBOR Spread in
effect from time to time shall be determined in accordance with
the following table:

            In the event the S&P rating on the Borrower's senior
unsecured long-term debt is not equivalent to the Moody's rating
on such debt, the higher rating will determine the Facility Fee
and applicable LIBOR Spread, unless the S&P and Moody's ratings
are one or more levels apart, in which case the rating one level
below the higher rating will be determinative.  In the event that
the Borrower's senior unsecured long-term debt is rated by only
one of S&P and Moody's, then that single rating shall be
determinative.  In the event that the Borrower's senior unsecured
long-term debt is not rated by either S&P or Moody's, then the
Facility Fee and the applicable LIBOR Spread shall be deemed to
be calculated as if the lowest rating category set forth above
applied.  Any increase in the Facility Fee or the applicable
LIBOR Spread determined in accordance with the foregoing table
shall become effective on the date of announcement or publication
by the Borrower or either such rating agency of a reduction in
such rating or, in the absence of such announcement or
publication, on the effective date of such decreased rating, or
on the date of any request by the Borrower to either of such
rating agencies not to rate its senior unsecured long-term debt
or on the date either of such rating agencies announces it shall
no longer rate the Borrower's senior unsecured long-term debt.
Any decrease in the Facility Fee or applicable LIBOR Spread shall
be effective on the date of announcement or publication by either
of such rating agencies of an increase in rating or in the
absence of announcement or publication on the effective date of
such increase in rating.

            SECTION 2.23.  Increase of Commitments.  (a)  At the
request of the Borrower to the Administrative Agent, the combined
Commitments hereunder may be increased after the Closing Date on
one or more occasions by not more than $250,000,000 provided that
(i) the aggregate of all such increases pursuant to this Section




                                                                          38



2.23 and pursuant to Section 2.23 of the 364-Day Credit Agreement
may total no more than $500,000,000, (ii) so long as the 364-Day
Credit Agreement is in effect, any increase of the Commitments
hereunder is in the same amount as any increase of the
Commitments under the 364-Day Credit Agreement, (iii) each such
increase is in a minimum amount of $25,000,000, (iv) each Lender
whose Commitment is increased consents and (v) the consent of the
Administrative Agent is obtained.

            (b)  In the event that the Borrower and one or more of
the Lenders (or other financial institutions which may elect to
participate with the consent of the Administrative Agent) shall
agree, in accordance with Section 2.23(a), upon such an increase
in the aggregate Commitments, the Borrower, the Administrative
Agent and each financial institution in question shall enter into
a Commitment Increase Supplement setting forth the amounts of the
increase in Commitments and providing that the additional
financial institutions participating shall be deemed to be
included as Lenders for all purposes of this Agreement.  Upon the
execution and delivery of such Commitment Increase Supplement as
provided above, and upon satisfaction of such other conditions as
the Administrative Agent may specify (including the delivery of
certificates and legal opinions on behalf of the Borrower
relating to the amendment and, if requested, new Notes), this
Agreement shall be deemed to be amended accordingly.

            (c)  No Lender shall have any obligation to increase
its Commitment in the event of such a request by the Borrower
hereunder.

            SECTION 2.24.  Letters of Credit.

            (a) (i)  Upon the terms and subject to the conditions
hereof, each Issuing Lender agrees to issue Letters of Credit
payable in Dollars from time to time after the Closing Date and
prior to the earlier of the Maturity Date and the termination of
the Commitments, upon the request of the Borrower, provided that
(A) the Borrower shall not request that any Letter of Credit be
issued if, after giving effect thereto, the sum of the then
current L/C Exposure plus the aggregate Loans then outstanding
would exceed the Total Commitment, (B) in no event shall any
Issuing Lender issue (x) any Letter of Credit having an
expiration date later than five Business Days before the Maturity
Date or (y) any Letter of Credit having an expiration date more
than one year after its date of issuance, provided that any
Letter of Credit with a one-year tenor may provide for the
renewal thereof for additional one-year periods (which shall in
no event extend beyond the date referred to in clause (x) above),
(C) the Borrower shall not request that an Issuing Lender issue
any Letter of Credit if, after giving effect to such issuance,
the L/C Exposure would exceed $100,000,000, and (D) an Issuing
Lender shall be prohibited from issuing Letters of Credit
hereunder upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an
Event of Default. In addition to the foregoing, the Borrower may

5


                                                                      39



request the issuance of the Avis L/C in an aggregate amount not
exceeding $400,000,000, which may have an expiration date no
later than eighteen months after the first date of issuance
thereof, for use solely in connection with the Borrower's
acquisition of Avis, provided that in no event shall the sum of
the total L/C Exposure at any time exceed $400,000,000.

            (ii)        Immediately upon the issuance of each Letter of
Credit, each Lender shall be deemed to, and hereby agrees to,
have irrevocably purchased from the applicable Issuing Lender, a
participation in such Letter of Credit in accordance with the
percentage which its Commitment represents to the Total
Commitment.

            (iii)       Each Letter of Credit may, at the option of the
applicable Issuing Lender, provide that such Issuing Lender may
(but shall not be required to) pay all or any part of the maximum
amount which may at any time be available for drawing thereunder
to the beneficiary thereof upon the occurrence of an Event of
Default and the acceleration of the maturity of the Loans,
provided that, if payment is not then due to the beneficiary,
such Issuing Lender shall deposit the funds in question in an
account with such Issuing Lender to secure payment to the
beneficiary and any funds so deposited shall be paid to the
beneficiary of the Letter of Credit if conditions to such payment
are satisfied or returned to the Administrative Agent for
distribution to the Lenders (or, if all Obligations shall have
been paid in full in cash, to the Borrower) if no payment to the
beneficiary has been made and the final date available for
drawings under the Letter of Credit has passed.  Each payment or
deposit of funds by an Issuing Lender as provided in this
paragraph shall be treated for all purposes of this Agreement as
a drawing duly honored by such Issuing Lender under the related
Letter of Credit.

            (iv)        Letters of Credit issued under the Existing Credit
Agreement and outstanding on the Closing Date shall be deemed to
be Letters of Credit issued under this Agreement on the Closing
Date.

            (b)  Whenever the Borrower desires the issuance of a
Letter of Credit, it shall deliver to the Administrative Agent
and the applicable Issuing Lender a written notice no later than
1:00 p.m. (New York time) at least five Business Days prior to
the proposed date of issuance provided, however, that the
Borrower and the Administrative Agent and such Issuing Lender may
agree to a shorter time period.  That notice shall specify (i)
the Issuing Lender for such Letter of Credit, (ii) the proposed
date of issuance (which shall be a Business Day under the laws of
the jurisdiction of the applicable Issuing Lender), (iii) the
face amount of the Letter of Credit, (iv) the expiration date of
the Letter of Credit and (v) the name and address of the
beneficiary. Such notice shall be accompanied by a brief
description of the underlying transaction and upon the request of




                                                                         40



the applicable Issuing Lender, the Borrower shall provide
additional details regarding the underlying transaction.
Concurrently with the giving of written notice of a request for
the issuance of a Letter of Credit, the Borrower shall specify a
precise description of the documents and the verbatim text of any
certificate to be presented by the beneficiary of such Letter of
Credit which, if presented by such beneficiary prior to the
expiration date of the Letter of Credit, would require the
applicable Issuing Lender to make payment under the Letter of
Credit; provided that the applicable Issuing Lender, in its
reasonable discretion, may require customary changes in any such
documents and certificates.  Upon issuance of any Letter of
Credit, the applicable Issuing Lender shall notify the
Administrative Agent of the issuance of such Letter of Credit.
Promptly after receipt of such notice, the Administrative Agent
shall notify each Lender of the issuance and the amount of each
such Lender's respective participation therein.

            (c)  The payment of drafts under any Letter of Credit
shall be made in accordance with the terms of such Letter of
Credit and, in that connection, any Issuing Lender shall be
entitled to honor any drafts and accept any documents presented
to it by the beneficiary of such Letter of Credit in accordance
with the terms of such Letter of Credit and believed by such
Issuing Lender in good faith to be genuine.  No Issuing Lender
shall have any duty to inquire as to the accuracy or authenticity
of any draft or other drawing documents which may be presented to
it, but shall be responsible only to determine in accordance with
customary commercial practices that the documents which are
required to be presented before payment or acceptance of a draft
under any Letter of Credit have been delivered and that they
comply on their face with the requirements of that Letter of
Credit.

            (d)  If any Issuing Lender shall make payment on any
draft presented under a Letter of Credit, such Issuing Lender
shall give notice of such payment to the Administrative Agent and
the Lenders and each Lender hereby authorizes and requests such
Issuing Lender to advance for its account pursuant to the terms
hereof its share of such payment based upon its participation in
the Letter of Credit and agrees promptly to reimburse such
Issuing Lender in immediately available funds for the Dollar
equivalent of the amount so advanced on its behalf.  If such
reimbursement is not made by any Lender in immediately available
funds on the same day on which such Issuing Lender shall have
made payment on any such draft, such Lender shall pay interest
thereon to such Issuing Lender at a rate per annum equal to the
Issuing Lender's cost of obtaining overnight funds in the New
York Federal Funds Market.

            (e)  In the case of any draft presented under a Letter
of Credit which is required to be paid at any time on or before
the Maturity Date and provided that the conditions specified in
Section 4.2 are then satisfied, such payment shall constitute an




                                                                        41



ABR Loan hereunder, and interest shall accrue from the date the
applicable Issuing Lender makes payment of a draft under the
Letter of Credit.  If any draft is presented under a Letter of
Credit and (i) the conditions specified in Section 4.2 are not
satisfied or (ii) if the Commitments have been terminated, then
the Borrower will, upon demand by the Administrative Agent, pay
to the applicable Issuing Lender, in immediately available funds,
the full amount of such draft.

            (f) (i)  The Borrower agrees to pay the following
amount to each Issuing Lender with respect to Letters of Credit
issued by it hereunder:

            (A)  with respect to drawings made under any Letter of
      Credit, interest, payable on demand, on the amount paid by
      such Issuing Lender in respect of each such drawing from the
      date of the drawing to, but excluding, the date such amount
      is reimbursed by the Borrower at a rate which is at all
      times equal to 2% per annum in excess of the Alternate Base
      Rate; provided that no such default interest shall be
      payable if such reimbursement is made from the proceeds of
      Revolving Credit Loans pursuant to Section 2.24(e);

            (B)  with respect to the issuance, amendment or
      transfer of each Letter of Credit and each drawing made
      thereunder, documentary and processing charges in accordance
      with such Issuing Lender's standard schedule for such
      charges in effect at the time of such issuance, amendment,
      transfer or drawing, as the case may be; and

            (C)  a fronting fee computed at the rate agreed to by
      the Borrower and the applicable Issuing Lender, on the daily
      average face amount of each outstanding Letter of Credit
      issued by such Issuing Lender, such fee to be due and
      payable in arrears on and through the last day of each
      fiscal quarter of the Borrower, on the Maturity Date and on
      the expiration of the last outstanding Letter of Credit.

            (ii)        The Borrower agrees to pay to the Administrative
Agent for distribution to each Lender in respect of all Letters
of Credit outstanding, such Lender's pro rata share of a
commission on the maximum amount available from time to time to
be drawn under such outstanding Letters of Credit calculated at a
rate per annum equal to the applicable LIBOR Spread from time to
time in effect hereunder.  Such commission shall be payable in
arrears on and through the last day of each fiscal quarter of the
Borrower and on the later of the Maturity Date and the expiration
of the last outstanding Letter of Credit.

            (iii)       Promptly upon receipt by any Issuing Lender or the
Administrative Agent (as applicable) of any amount described in
clause (i)(A) or (ii) of this Section 2.24(f), or any amount
described in Section 2.24(e) previously reimbursed to the
applicable Issuing Lender by the Lenders, such Issuing Lender or




                                                                        42



the Administrative Agent (as applicable) shall distribute to each
Lender its pro rata share of such amount.  Amounts payable under
clauses (i)(B) and (i)(C) of this Section 2.24(f) shall be paid
directly to the Issuing Lender and shall be for its exclusive
use.

            (g)  If by reason of (i) any change after the date
hereof in Applicable Law, or in the interpretation or
administration thereof (including, without limitation, any
request, guideline or policy not having the force of law) by any
Governmental Authority charged with the administration or
interpretation thereof, or (ii) compliance by any Issuing Lender
or any Lender with any direction, request or requirement (whether
or not having the force of law) issued after the date hereof by
any Governmental Authority or monetary authority (including any
change whether or not proposed or published prior to the date
hereof), including, without limitation, Regulation D of the
Board:

            (A)  any Issuing Lender or any Lender shall be subject
      to any tax, levy, charge or withholding of any nature (other
      than withholding tax imposed by the United States of America
      or any political subdivision or taxing authority thereof or
      therein or any other tax, levy, charge or withholding (i)
      that is measured with respect to the overall net income of
      such Issuing Lender or such Lender (or is imposed in lieu of
      a tax on net income) or of a Lending office of such Issuing
      Lender or such Lender, and that is imposed by the United
      States of America, or by the jurisdiction in which such
      Issuing Lender or such Lender is incorporated, or in which
      such Lending Office is located, managed or controlled or in
      which such Issuing Lender or such Lender has its principal
      office (or any political subdivision or taxing authority
      thereof or therein) or (ii) that is imposed solely by reason
      of such Issuing Lender or such Lender failing to make a
      declaration of, or otherwise to establish, non-residence, or
      to make any other claim for exemption, or otherwise to
      comply with any certification, identification, information,
      documentation or reporting requirements prescribed under the
      laws of the relevant jurisdiction, in those cases where such
      Issuing Lender or such Lender may properly make the
      declaration or claim or so establish non-residence or
      otherwise comply) or to any variation thereof or to any
      penalty with respect to the maintenance or fulfillment of
      its obligations under this Section 2.24, whether directly or
      by such being imposed on or suffered by any Issuing Lender
      or any Lender;

            (B)  any reserve, deposit or similar requirement is or
      shall be applicable, imposed or modified in respect of any
      Letter of Credit issued by any Issuing Lender or
      participations therein purchased by any Lender; or





                                                                         43



            (C)  there shall be imposed on any Issuing Lender or
      any Lender any other condition regarding this Section 2.24,
      any Letter of Credit or any participation therein;

and the result of the foregoing is directly or indirectly to
increase the cost to any Issuing Lender or any Lender of issuing,
making or maintaining any Letter of Credit or of purchasing or
maintaining any participation therein, or to reduce the amount
receivable in respect thereof by any Issuing Lender or any
Lender, then and in any such case the Issuing Lender or such
Lender may, at any time, notify the Borrower, and the Borrower
shall pay on demand such amounts as such Issuing Lender or such
Lender may specify to be necessary to compensate such Issuing
Lender or such Lender for such additional cost or reduced
receipt.  The determination by any Issuing Lender or any Lender,
as the case may be, of any amount due pursuant to this Section
2.24 as set forth in a certificate setting forth the calculation
thereof in reasonable detail shall, in the absence of manifest
error, be final, conclusive and binding on all of the parties
hereto.

            (h)  If at any time when an Event of Default shall have
occurred and be continuing, any Letters of Credit shall remain
outstanding, then either the applicable Issuing Lender(s) or the
Required Lenders may, at their option, require the Borrower to
deposit Cash Equivalents in a Cash Collateral Account in an
amount equal to the full amount of the L/C Exposure or to furnish
other security acceptable to the Administrative Agent and the
applicable Issuing Lender(s).  Any amounts so delivered pursuant
to the preceding sentence shall be applied to reimburse the
applicable Issuing Lender(s) for the amount of any drawings
honored under Letters of Credit issued by it; provided, however,
that if prior to the Maturity Date, no Event of Default is then
continuing, the Administrative Agent shall return all of such
collateral relating to such deposit to the Borrower if requested
by it.

            (i)  If at any time, the L/C Exposure exceeds the
aggregate Commitments, then the Required Lenders may, at their
option, require the Borrower to deposit Cash Equivalents in a
Cash Collateral Account in an amount sufficient to eliminate such
excess or to furnish other security for such excess acceptable to
the Administrative Agent and the Issuing Lender(s).  Any amounts
so delivered pursuant to the preceding sentence shall be applied
to reimburse the applicable, Issuing Lender(s) for the amount of
any drawings honored under Letters of Credit; provided, however,
that if subsequent to any such deposit such excess is reduced to
an amount less than the portion of such deposited amounts and no
Default or Event of Default is then continuing, the Borrower
shall be entitled to receive such excess collateral if requested
by it.

            (j)  Upon the request of the Administrative Agent, each
Issuing Lender shall furnish to the Administrative Agent copies




                                                                          44



of any Letter of Credit issued by such Issuing Lender and such
related documentation as may be reasonably requested by the
Administrative Agent.

            (k)  Notwithstanding the termination of the Commitments
and the payment of the Loans, the obligations of the Borrower
under this Section 2.24 shall remain in full force and effect
until the Administrative Agent, each Issuing Lender and the
Lenders shall have been irrevocably released from their
obligations with regard to any and all Letters of Credit.

infringe upon the rights of any other Person, except for any such




                                                                         46



infringements that, individually or in the aggregate, could not
reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect.

            SECTION 3.8.  Title to Properties.

            Each of the Borrower and its Material Subsidiaries will
have at the Closing Date good title or valid leasehold interests
to each of the properties and assets reflected on the balance
sheets referred to in Section 3.4, except for minor defects in
title that do not interfere with its ability to conduct its
business as currently conducted or to utilize such properties for
their intended purposes, and all such properties and assets will
be free and clear of Liens, except Permitted Encumbrances.

            SECTION 3.9.  Litigation.

            Except as set forth on Schedule 3.9, there are no
lawsuits or other proceedings pending (including, but not limited
to, matters relating to environmental liability), or, to the
knowledge of the Borrower, threatened, against or affecting the
Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries or any of their respective
properties, by or before any Governmental Authority or
arbitrator, which could reasonably be expected to have a Material
Adverse Effect.  Neither the Borrower nor any of its Subsidiaries
is in default with respect to any order, writ, injunction,
decree, rule or regulation of any Governmental Authority, which
default would have a Material Adverse Effect.

            SECTION 3.10.  Federal Reserve Regulations.

            Neither the Borrower nor any of its Subsidiaries is
engaged principally, or as one of its important activities, in
the business of extending credit for the purpose of purchasing or
carrying any Margin Stock.  No part of the proceeds of the Loans
will be used, whether immediately, incidentally or ultimately,
for any purpose violative of or inconsistent with any of the
provisions of Regulation G, T, U or X of the Board.

            SECTION 3.11.  Investment Company Act.

            The Borrower is not, and will not during the term of
this Agreement be, (x) an "investment company", within the
meaning of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended or (y)
subject to regulation under the Public Utility Holding Company
Act of 1935 or the Federal Power Act.

            SECTION 3.12.  Enforceability.

            This Agreement and the other Fundamental Documents when
executed will constitute legal, valid and enforceable obligations
(as applicable) of the Borrower (subject, as to enforcement, to
applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or
other similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors' rights
generally and to general principles of equity).




                                                                         47




            SECTION 3.13.  Taxes.

            The Borrower and each of its Subsidiaries has filed or
caused to be filed all federal, state and local tax returns which
are required to be filed, and has paid or has caused to be paid
all taxes as shown on said returns or on any assessment received
by them in writing, to the extent that such taxes have become
due, except (a) as permitted by Section 5.4 hereof or (b) to the
extent that the failure to do so could not reasonably be expected
to result in a Material Adverse Effect.

            SECTION 3.14.  Compliance with ERISA.

            Each of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries is in
compliance in all material respects with the provisions of ERISA
and the Code applicable to Plans, and the regulations and
published interpretations thereunder, if any, which are
applicable to it.  Neither the Borrower nor any of its
Subsidiaries has, with respect to any Plan established or
maintained by it, engaged in a prohibited transaction which would
subject it to a material tax or penalty on prohibited
transactions imposed by ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code.  No
liability to the PBGC that is material to the Borrower and its
Subsidiaries taken as a whole has been, or to the Borrower's best
knowledge is reasonably expected to be, incurred with respect to
the Plans and there has been no Reportable Event and no other
event or condition that presents a material risk of termination
of a Plan by the PBGC.  Neither the Borrower nor any of its
Subsidiaries has engaged in a transaction which would result in
the incurrence of a material liability under Section 4069 of
ERISA.  As of the Closing Date, neither the Borrower nor any of
its Subsidiaries contributes to a Multiemployer Plan, and has not
incurred any liability that would be material to the Borrower and
its Subsidiaries taken as a whole on account of a partial or
complete withdrawal (as defined in Sections 4203 and 4205 of
ERISA, respectively) with respect to any Multiemployer Plan.

            SECTION 3.15.  Disclosure.

            As of the Closing Date, neither this Agreement nor the
Confidential Information Memorandum dated September 1996, at the
time it was furnished, contained any untrue statement of a
material fact or omitted to state a material fact, under the
circumstances under which it was made, necessary in order to make
the statements contained herein or therein not misleading.  At
the date hereof, there is no fact known to the Borrower which,
individually or in the aggregate, could reasonably be expected to
result in a Material Adverse Effect.  The Borrower has delivered
to the Administrative Agent certain projections relating to the
Borrower and its Consolidated Subsidiaries.  Such projections are
based on good faith estimates and assumptions believed to be
reasonable at the time made, provided, however, that the Borrower
makes no representation or warranty that such assumptions will
prove in the future to be accurate or that the Borrower and its




                                                                         48



Consolidated Subsidiaries will achieve the financial results
reflected in such projections.

            SECTION 3.16.  Environmental Liabilities.

            Except with respect to any matters, that, individually
or in the aggregate, could not reasonably be expected to result
in a Material Adverse Effect, neither the Borrower nor any of its
Subsidiaries (i) has failed to comply with any Environmental Law
or to obtain, maintain or comply with any permit, license or
other approval required under any Environmental Law, (ii) has
become subject to any Environmental Liability, (iii) has received
notice of any claim with respect to any Environmental Liability
or (iv) knows of any basis for any Environmental Liability.

            (e)  No Material Adverse Change.  The Administrative
      Agent shall be satisfied that no material adverse change
      shall have occurred with respect to the business, assets,
      operations or condition, financial or otherwise, of the
      Borrower and its Consolidated Subsidiaries, taken as a
      whole, since December 31, 1995.

            (f)  Payment of Fees.  The Administrative Agent shall

      to the transactions contemplated hereby have been or are
      simultaneously being paid.

            (g)  Litigation.  No litigation shall be pending or
      threatened which would be likely to have a Material Adverse
      Effect, or which could reasonably be expected to materially
      adversely affect the ability of the Borrower to fulfill its
      obligations hereunder or to otherwise materially impair the
      interests of the Lenders.

            (h)  Existing Credit Agreement.  Simultaneously with
      the making of the initial Loans, all obligations of the
      Borrower under the Competitive Advance and Revolving Credit
      Agreement, dated as of December 16, 1993, as amended, among
      the Borrower, the lenders named therein and The Chase
      Manhattan Bank, as administrative agent (the "Existing
      Credit Agreement") shall have been paid in full and the
      commitments of the lenders pursuant to the Existing Credit
      Agreement shall have been terminated.

            (i)  Officer's Certificate.  The Administrative Agent
      shall have received a certificate of the Borrower's chief

      of the initial Letters of Credit, compliance with the
      conditions set forth in paragraphs (b) and (c) of Section
      4.2.





                                                                         50



            (j)  Other Documents.  The Administrative Agent shall
      have received such other documents as the Administrative
      Agent may reasonably require.

            SECTION 4.2.  Conditions Precedent to Each Loan and
Letter of Credit.

            The obligation of the Lenders to make each Loan and of
any Issuing Lender to issue a Letter of Credit, including the
initial Loan hereunder, is subject to the following conditions
precedent:

            (a)  Notice.  The Administrative Agent shall have
      received a notice with respect to such Borrowing or Letter
      of Credit as required by Article 2 hereof.

            (b)  Representations and Warranties.  The
      representations and warranties set forth in Article 3 hereof
      (other than those set forth in Section 3.5, which shall be
      deemed made only on the Closing Date) and in the other
      Fundamental Documents shall be true and correct in all
      material respects on and as of the date of each Borrowing
      hereunder (except to the extent that such representations
      and warranties expressly relate to an earlier date) with the
      same effect as if made on and as of such date; provided,
      however, that this condition shall not apply to a Revolving
      Credit Borrowing which is solely refinancing outstanding
      Revolving Credit Loans and which, after giving effect
      thereto, has not increased the aggregate amount of
      outstanding Revolving Credit Loans.

            (c)  No Event of Default.  On the date of each
      Borrowing or the issuance of a Letter of Credit hereunder,
      the Borrower shall be in material compliance with all of the
      terms and provisions set forth herein to be observed or
      performed and no Event of Default or Default shall have
      occurred and be continuing; provided, however, that this
      condition shall not apply to a Revolving Credit Borrowing
      which is solely refinancing outstanding Revolving Credit
      Loans and which, after giving effect thereto, has not
      increased the aggregate amount of outstanding Revolving
      Credit Loans.

Each Borrowing or issuance of a Letter of Credit shall be deemed
to be a representation and warranty by the Borrower on the date
of such Borrowing or Letter of Credit as to the matters specified
in paragraphs (b) and (c) of this Section.

5.  AFFIRMATIVE COVENANTS

            From the date of the initial Loan and for so long as
the Commitments shall be in effect or any amount shall remain

      year, accompanied by an opinion of Deloitte & Touche LLP or

      accepted auditing standards relating to reporting and which
      report and opinion shall (A) be unqualified as to going

      all adjustments necessary to present fairly the financial
      position of the Borrower and its Consolidated Subsidiaries,
      as the case may be, as at the end of the fiscal quarter and
      the results of their operations for the quarter then ended
      in conformity with GAAP consistently applied, subject only
      to year-end and audit adjustments and to the absence of
      footnote disclosure;




                                                                         52

      stating whether or not the signer has knowledge of any
      Default or Event of Default and, if so, specifying each such
      Default or Event of Default of which the signer has

      investigation or arbitration by any Governmental Authority
      or other Person against or affecting the Borrower or any of
      its Subsidiaries or any of their assets, or (ii) any
      material development in any such action, suit, proceeding,
      investigation or arbitration (whether or not previously
      disclosed to the Lenders), which, in each case might

      the Borrower shall promptly give notice thereof to the
      Lenders and provide such other information as may be
      reasonably available to it (without waiver of any applicable
      evidentiary privilege) to enable the Lenders to evaluate

      or Event of Default has come to their attention, and if such
      a Default or Event of Default has come to their attention,
      specifying the nature and period of existence thereof, and
      (ii) stating that based on their audit nothing has come to
      their attention which causes them to believe that the
      matters specified in paragraph (c)(ii) above for the
      applicable fiscal year are not stated in accordance with the
      terms of this Agreement.

            SECTION 5.2.  Corporate Existence; Compliance with
Statutes.

            Do or cause to be done all things necessary to
preserve, renew and keep in full force and effect its corporate

      Borrower (other than Indebtedness issued in connection with,
      or in anticipation of, such Subsidiary becoming a Subsidiary
      of the Borrower) if such default or circumstance arises
      solely as a result of a "change of control" provision
      applicable to such Indebtedness which becomes operative as a
      result of the acquisition of such Subsidiary by the Borrower
      or any of its  Subsidiaries;

            (f)  the Borrower or any of its Material Subsidiaries
      shall generally not pay its debts as they become due or

      creditors; or the Borrower or any of its Material
      Subsidiaries shall commence any case, proceeding or other
      action seeking to have an order for relief entered on its
      behalf as debtor or to adjudicate it a bankrupt or
      insolvent, or seeking reorganization, arrangement,

      allegations of any petition, complaint or similar pleading

      against the Borrower or any of its Material Subsidiaries
      shall be commenced seeking to have an order for relief
      entered against it as debtor or to adjudicate it a bankrupt
      or insolvent, or seeking reorganization, arrangement,
      adjustment, liquidation, dissolution or composition of it or
      its debts under any law relating to bankruptcy, insolvency,
      reorganization or relief of debtors, or seeking appointment
      of a receiver, trustee, custodian or other similar official
      for it or for all or any substantial part of its property,
      and such case, proceeding or other action (i) results in the
      entry of any order for relief against it or (ii) shall
      remain undismissed for a period of sixty (60) days;

      or any of its Subsidiaries which within thirty (30) days
      from the entry of such judgment shall not have been
      discharged or stayed pending appeal or which shall not have
      been discharged within thirty (30) days from the entry of a
      final order of affirmance on appeal; or

      shall not have been remedied within 45 days after the
      occurrence of such Reportable Event, if the occurrence
      thereof could reasonably be expected to have a Material
      Adverse Effect;

continuance of such event, the Administrative Agent may or shall,
if directed by the Required Lenders, take either or both of the
following actions, at the same or different times: terminate

notice of intent to accelerate or other notice of any kind, all
of which are hereby expressly waived, anything in this Agreement
or in the Notes to the contrary notwithstanding.  If an Event of
Default specified in paragraphs (f) or (g) above shall have

8.  THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT AND EACH ISSUING LENDER

            SECTION 8.1.  Administration by Administrative Agent.

            The general administration of the Fundamental Documents
and any other documents contemplated by this Agreement shall be
by the Administrative Agent or its designees.  Each of the
Lenders hereby irrevocably authorizes the Administrative Agent,
at its discretion, to take or refrain from taking such actions as
agent on its behalf and to exercise or refrain from exercising
such powers under the Fundamental Documents, the Notes and any
other documents contemplated by this Agreement as are delegated
by the terms hereof or thereof, as appropriates together with all
powers reasonably incidental thereto.  The Administrative Agent
shall have no duties or responsibilities except as set forth in
the Fundamental Documents.  Any Lender which is a co-agent (as
indicated on the signature pages hereto) for the credit facility
hereunder shall not have any duties or responsibilities except as
a Lender hereunder.

            SECTION 8.2.  Advances and Payments.

            (a)  On the date of each Loan, the Administrative Agent
shall be authorized (but not obligated) to advance, for the
account of each of the Lenders, the amount of the Loan to be made
by it in accordance with this Agreement.  Each of the Lenders
hereby authorizes and requests the Administrative Agent to
advance for its account, pursuant to the terms hereof, the amount
of the Loan to be made by it, unless with respect to any Lender,
such Lender has theretofore specifically notified the
Administrative Agent that such Lender does not intend to fund
that particular Loan.  Each of the Lenders agrees forthwith to
reimburse the Administrative Agent in immediately available funds
for the amount so advanced on its behalf by the Administrative
Agent pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence.  If any
such reimbursement is not made in immediately available funds on
the same day on which the Administrative Agent shall have made
any such amount available on behalf of any Lender in accordance
with this Section 8.2, such Lender shall pay interest to the
Administrative Agent at a rate per annum equal to the
Administrative Agent's cost of obtaining overnight funds in the
New York Federal Funds Market.  Notwithstanding the preceding
sentence, if such reimbursement is not made by the second
Business Day following the day on which the Administrative Agent
shall have made any such amount available on behalf of any Lender
or such Lender has indicated that it does not intend to reimburse
the Administrative Agent, the Borrower shall immediately pay such
unreimbursed advance amount (plus any accrued, but unpaid
interest at the rate applicable to ABR Loans) to the
Administrative Agent.

            (b)  Any amounts received by the Administrative Agent
in connection with this Agreement or the Notes the application of
which is not otherwise provided for shall be applied, in




                                                                          63



accordance with each of the Lenders' pro rata interest therein,
first, to pay accrued but unpaid Facility Fees, second, to pay
accrued but unpaid interest on the Notes, third, the principal
balance outstanding on the Notes and fourth, to pay other amounts
payable to the Administrative Agent and/or the Lenders.  All
amounts to be paid to any of the Lenders by the Administrative
Agent shall be credited to the Lenders, after collection by the
Administrative Agent, in immediately available funds either by
wire transfer or deposit in such Lender's correspondent account
with the Administrative Agent, or as such Lender and the
Administrative Agent shall from time to time agree.

            SECTION 8.3.  Sharing of Setoffs and Cash Collateral.

            Each of the Lenders agrees that if it shall, through
the operation of Sections 2.19, 2.24(h) or 2.24(i) hereof or the
exercise of a right of bank's lien, setoff or counterclaim
against the Borrower, including, but not limited to, a secured
claim under Section 506 of Title 11 of the United States Code or
other security or interest arising from, or in lieu of, such
secured claim and received by such Lender under any applicable
bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar law, or otherwise, obtain
payment in respect of its Loans as a result of which the unpaid
portion of its Loans or L/C Exposure is proportionately less than
the unpaid portion of any of the other Lenders (a) it shall
promptly purchase at par (and shall be deemed to have thereupon
purchased) from such other Lenders a participation in the Loans
or L/C Exposure of such other Lenders, so that the aggregate
unpaid principal amount of each of the Lenders' Loans and L/C
Exposure and its participation in Loans and L/C Exposure of the
other Lenders shall be in the same proportion to the aggregate
unpaid principal amount of all Loans and L/C Exposure then
outstanding as the principal amount of its Loans and L/C Exposure
prior to the obtaining of such payment was to the principal
amount of all Loans and L/C Exposure outstanding prior to the
obtaining of such payment and (b) such other adjustments shall be
made from time to time as shall be equitable to ensure that the
Lenders share such payment pro rata.

            SECTION 8.4.  Notice to the Lenders.

            Upon receipt by the Administrative Agent from the
Borrower of any communication calling for an action on the part
of the Lenders, or upon notice to the Administrative Agent of any
Event of Default, the Administrative Agent will in turn
immediately inform the other Lenders in writing (which shall
include telegraphic communications) of the nature of such
communication or of the Event of Default, as the case may be.

            SECTION 8.5.  Liability of Administrative Agent and
each Issuing Lender.

            (a)  The Administrative Agent or any Issuing Lender,
when acting on behalf of the Lenders may execute any of its




                                                                          64



duties under this Agreement by or through its officers, agents,
or employees and neither the Administrative Agent, the Issuing
Lenders nor their respective directors, officers, agents, or
employees shall be liable to the Lenders or any of them for any
action taken or omitted to be taken in good faith, or be
responsible to the Lenders or to any of them for the consequences
of any oversight or error of judgment, or for any loss, unless
the same shall happen through its gross negligence or willful
misconduct.  The Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lenders and
their respective directors, officers, agents, and employees shall
in no event be liable to the Lenders or to any of them for any
action taken or omitted to be taken by it pursuant to
instructions received by it from the Required Lenders or in
reliance upon the advice of counsel selected by it.  Without
limiting the foregoing, neither the Administrative Agent, the
Issuing Lenders nor any of their respective directors, officers,
employees, or agents shall be responsible to any of the Lenders
for the due execution, validity, genuineness, effectiveness,
sufficiency, or enforceability of, or for any statement,
warranty, or representation in, or for the perfection of any
security interest contemplated by, this Agreement or any related

            (c)  The Administrative Agent, and the Issuing Lenders,
in such capacities hereunder, shall be entitled to rely on any

                                                                         65



agents and employees paid for services rendered on behalf of the

Borrower or one of its Subsidiaries, and (ii) to indemnify and
hold harmless the Administrative Agent and any of its directors,
officers, employees, or agents, on demand, in the amount of its

            SECTION 8.7.  Rights of Administrative Agent.

            It is understood and agreed that Chase shall have the
same rights and powers hereunder (including the right to give
such instructions) as the other Lenders and may exercise such
rights and powers, as well as its rights and powers under other
agreements and instruments to which it is or may be party, and
engage in other transactions with the Borrower as though it were
not the Administrative Agent on behalf of the Lenders under this
Agreement.

            SECTION 8.8.  Independent Investigation by Lenders.

            Each of the Lenders acknowledges that it has decided to
enter into this Agreement and to make the Loans and participate
in the Letters of Credit hereunder based on its own analysis of

of the Borrower and agrees that neither the Administrative Agent
nor any Issuing Lender shall bear responsibility therefor.

            SECTION 8.9.  Notice of Transfer.

            The Administrative Agent and the Issuing Lenders may
deem and treat any Lender which is a party to this Agreement as

and until a written notice of the assignment or transfer thereof




                                                                         66



executed by any such Lender shall have been received by the
Administrative Agent and become effective pursuant to Section
9.3.

            SECTION 8.10.  Successor Administrative Agent.

            The Administrative Agent may resign at any time by
giving written notice thereof to the Lenders and the Borrower.
Upon any such resignation, the Required Lenders shall have the
right to appoint a successor Administrative Agent from among the
Lenders.  If no successor Administrative Agent shall have been so
appointed by the Required Lenders and shall have accepted such
appointment, within 30 days after the retiring Administrative
Agent's giving of notice of resignation, the retiring
Administrative Agent may, on behalf of the Lenders, appoint a
successor Administrative Agent, which with the consent of the
Borrower, which will not be unreasonably withheld, shall be a
commercial bank organized or licensed under the laws of the
United States of America or of any State thereof and having a
combined capital and surplus of at least $500,000,000.  Upon the
acceptance of any appointment as Administrative Agent hereunder
by a successor Administrative Agent, such successor
Administrative Agent shall thereupon succeed to and become vested
with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the
retiring Administrative Agent, and the retiring Administrative
Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations under
this Agreement.  After any retiring Administrative Agent's
resignation hereunder as Administrative Agent, the provisions of
this Article 8 shall inure to its benefit as to any actions taken
or omitted to be taken by it while it was Administrative Agent
under this Agreement.

            SECTION 8.11.  Resignation of an Issuing Lender.

            Any Issuing Lender may resign at any time by giving
written notice thereof to the Lenders and the Borrower.  Upon any
such resignation, such Issuing Lender shall be discharged from
any duties and obligations under this Agreement in its capacity
as an Issuing Lender with regard to Letters of Credit not yet
issued.  After any retiring Issuing Lender's resignation
hereunder as an Issuing Lender, the provisions of this Agreement
shall continue to inure to its benefit as to any outstanding
Letters of Credit or otherwise with regard to outstanding L/C
Exposure and any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while
it was an Issuing Lender under this Agreement.

            SECTION 9.3.  Successors and Assigns; Syndications;

the successors and assigns of such party (provided, however, that
the Borrower may not assign its rights hereunder without the
prior written consent of all the Lenders), and all covenants,

            (b)  Each of the Lenders may (but only with the prior

unless otherwise agreed by the Borrower and the Administrative
Agent and (4) the parties to each such assignment shall execute
and deliver to the Administrative Agent, for its acceptance and
recording in the Register (as defined below), an Assignment and
Acceptance, together with any Note or Notes subject to such
assignment (if required hereunder) and a processing and
recordation fee of $3,500.  Upon such execution, delivery,
acceptance and recording, and from and after the effective date
specified in each Assignment and Acceptance, which effective date
shall be not earlier than five Business Days after the date of
acceptance and recording by the Administrative Agent, (x) the
assignee thereunder shall be a party hereto and, to the extent
provided in such Assignment and Acceptance, have the rights and
obligations of a Lender hereunder and (y) the assigning Lender
thereunder shall, to the extent provided in such Assignment and
Acceptance, be released from its obligations under this Agreement
(and, in the case of an Assignment and Acceptance covering all or
the remaining portion of the assigning Lender's rights and
obligations under this Agreement, such assigning Lender shall
cease to be a party hereto).

            (c)  Notwithstanding the other provisions of this
Section 9.3, each Lender may at any time make a Ratable
Assignment or a Non-Ratable Assignment of its interests, rights




                                                                          69



and obligations under this Agreement to (i) any Affiliate of such
Lender or (ii) any other Lender hereunder.

            (d)  By executing and delivering an Assignment and
Acceptance, the assigning Lender thereunder and the assignee
thereunder confirm to and agree with each other and the other
parties hereto as follows: (i) other than the representation and
warranty that it is the legal and beneficial owner of the
interest being assigned thereby free and clear of any adverse
claim, the assigning Lender makes no representation or warranty
and assumes no responsibility with respect to any statements,
warranties or representations made in, or in connection with,
this Agreement or the execution, legality, validity,
enforceability, genuineness, sufficiency or value of the
Fundamental Documents or any other instrument or document
furnished pursuant hereto or thereto; (ii) such Lender assignor
makes no representation or warranty and assumes no responsibility
with respect to the financial condition of the Borrower or the
performance or observance by the Borrower of any of its
obligations under the Fundamental Documents; (iii) such assignee
confirms that it has received a copy of this Agreement, together
with copies of the most recent financial statements delivered
pursuant to Sections 5.1(a) and 5.1(b) (or if none of such
financial statements shall have then been delivered, then copies
of the financial statements referred to in Section 3.4 hereof)
and such other documents and information as it has deemed
appropriate to make its own credit analysis and decision to enter
into such Assignment and Acceptance; (iv) such assignee will,
independently and without reliance upon the assigning Lender, the
Administrative Agent or any other Lender and based on such
documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the
time, continue to make its own credit decisions in taking or not
taking action under this Agreement; (v) such assignee appoints
and authorizes the Administrative Agent to take such action as
agent on its behalf and to exercise such powers under the
Fundamental Documents as are delegated to the Administrative
Agent by the terms thereof, together with such powers as are
reasonably incidental thereto; and (vi) such assignee agrees that
it will be bound by the provisions of this Agreement and will
perform in accordance with its terms all of the obligations which
by the terms of this Agreement are required to be performed by it
as a Lender.

            (e)  The Administrative Agent, on behalf of the
Borrower, shall maintain at its address at which notices are to
be given to it pursuant to Section 9.1, a copy of each Assignment
and Acceptance delivered to it and a register for the recordation
of the names and addresses of the Lenders and the Commitments of,
and principal amount of the Loans owing to, each Lender from time
to time (the "Register").  The entries in the Register shall be
conclusive, in the absence of manifest error, and the Borrower,
the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lenders and the Lenders may
(and, in the case of any Loan or other obligation hereunder not
evidenced by a Note, shall) treat each Person whose name is




                                                                          70



recorded in the Register as the owner of a Loan or other
obligation hereunder as the owner thereof for all purposes of
this Agreement and the other Fundamental Documents,
notwithstanding any notice to the contrary.  Any assignment of
any Loan or other obligation hereunder not evidenced by a Note
shall be effective only upon appropriate entries with respect
thereto being made in the Register.  The Register shall be
available for inspection by the Borrower or any Lender at any
reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior
notice.

            (f)  Upon its receipt of an Assignment and Acceptance
executed by an assigning Lender and an assignee, any Notes
subject to such assignment (if required hereunder) and the
processing and recordation fee, the Administrative Agent (subject
to the right, if any, of the Borrower to require its consent
thereto) shall, if such Assignment and Acceptance has been
completed and is in the form of Exhibit C hereto, (i) accept such
Assignment and Acceptance, (ii) record the information contained
therein in the Register and (iii) give prompt written notice
thereof to the Borrower.  If a portion of the Commitment has been
assigned by an assigning Lender, then such Lender shall deliver
its Revolving Credit Note, if any, at the same time it delivers
the applicable Assignment and Acceptance to the Administrative
Agent.  If only Competitive Loans have been assigned by the
assigning Lender, such Lender shall not be required to deliver
its Competitive Note to the Administrative Agent, unless such
Lender no longer holds a Commitment under this Agreement, in
which event such assigning Lender shall deliver its Competitive
Note, if any, at the same time it delivers the applicable
Assignment and Acceptance to the Administrative Agent.  Within
five Business Days after receipt of the notice, the Borrower, at
its own expense, shall execute and deliver to the applicable
Lenders at their request, either (A) a new Revolving Credit Note
to the order of such assignee in an amount equal to the
Commitment assumed by it pursuant to such Assignment and
Acceptance and a Competitive Note to the order of such assignee
in an amount equal to the Total Commitment hereunder, and a new
Revolving Credit Note to the order of the assigning Lender in an
amount equal to the Commitment retained by it hereunder, or (B)
if Competitive Loans only have been assigned and the assigning
Lender holds a Commitment under this Agreement, then a new
Competitive Note to the order of the assignee Lender in an amount
equal to the outstanding principal amount of the Competitive
Loan(s) purchased by it pursuant to the Assignment and
Acceptance, or (C) if Competitive Loans only have been assigned
and the assigning Lender does not hold a Commitment under this
Agreement, a new Competitive Note to the order of such assignee
in an amount equal to the outstanding principal amount of the
Competitive Loans(s) purchased by it pursuant to such Assignment
and Acceptance and, a new Competitive Note to the order of the
assigning Lender in an amount equal to the outstanding principal
amount of the Competitive Loans retained by it hereunder.  Any
new Revolving Credit Notes shall be in an aggregate principal




                                                                         71



amount equal to the aggregate principal amount of the Commitments
of the respective Lenders.  All new Notes shall be dated the date
hereof and shall otherwise be in substantially the forms of
Exhibits A-1 and A-2 hereto, as the case may be.

            (g)  Each of the Lenders may without the consent of the
Borrower, the Administrative Agent or any Issuing Lender sell
participations to one or more banks or other entities in all or a
portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement
(including, without limitation, all or a portion of its
Commitment and the Loans owing to it and the Note or Notes held
by it); provided, however, that (i) any such Lender's obligations
under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, (ii) such
participant shall not be granted any voting rights under this
Agreement, except with respect to matters requiring the consent
of each of the Lenders hereunder, (iii) any such Lender shall
remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the
performance of such obligations, (iv) the participating banks or
other entities shall be entitled to the cost protection
provisions contained in Sections 2.14, 2.15 and 2.17 hereof but a
participant shall not be entitled to receive pursuant to such
provisions an amount larger than its share of the amount to which
the Lender granting such participation would have been entitled
to receive, and (v) the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and
the other Lenders shall continue to deal solely and directly with
such Lender in connection with such Lender's rights and
obligations under this Agreement.

            (h)  The Lenders may, in connection with any assignment
or participation or proposed assignment or participation pursuant
to this Section 9.3, disclose to the assignee or participant or
proposed assignee or participant, any information relating to the
Borrower furnished to the Administrative Agent by or on behalf of
the Borrower; provided that prior to any such disclosure, each
such assignee or participant or proposed assignee or participant
shall agree, by executing a confidentiality letter in form and
substance equivalent to the confidentiality letter executed by
the Lenders in connection with information received by such
Lenders relating to this transaction to preserve the
confidentiality of any confidential information relating to the
Borrower received from such Lender.

            (i)  Each Lender hereby represents that it is a
commercial lender or financial institution which makes loans in
the ordinary course of its business and that it will make the
Loans hereunder for its own account in the ordinary course of
such business; provided, however, that, subject to preceding
clauses (a) through (h), the disposition of the Notes or other
evidence of Indebtedness held by that Lender shall at all times
be within its exclusive control.

            (j)  The Borrower consents that any Lender may at any
time and from time to time pledge, or otherwise grant a security
interest in, any Loan or any Note evidencing such Loan (or any




                                                                         72



part thereof), including any such pledge or grant to any Federal
Reserve Bank, and this Section shall not apply to any such pledge
or grant; provided that no such pledge or grant shall release a
Lender from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any
such assignee for such Lender as a party hereto.

            SECTION 9.4.  Expenses; Documentary Taxes.

            Whether or not the transactions hereby contemplated
shall be consummated, the Borrower agrees to pay all reasonable
out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Administrative Agent in
connection with the syndication, preparation, execution, delivery
and administration of this Agreement, the Notes, the making of
the Loans and issuance and administration of the Letters of
Credit, including but not limited to any internally allocated
audit costs, the reasonable fees and disbursements of Simpson
Thacher & Bartlett, counsel to the Administrative Agent, as well
as all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Lenders
in connection with any restructuring or workout of this
Agreement, or the Notes or the Letters of Credit or in connection
with the enforcement or protection of the rights of the Lenders
in connection with this Agreement or the Notes or the Letters of
Credit or any other Fundamental Document, and with respect to any
action which may be instituted by any Person against any Lender
or any Issuing Lender in respect of the foregoing, or as a result
of any transaction, action or nonaction arising from the
foregoing, including but not limited to the fees and
disbursements of any counsel for the Lenders or any Issuing
Lender.  Such payments shall be made on the date of execution of
this Agreement and thereafter on demand.  The Borrower agrees
that it shall indemnify the Administrative Agent, the Lenders and
the Issuing Lenders from, and hold them harmless against, any
documentary taxes, assessments or charges made by any
Governmental Authority by reason of the execution and delivery of
this Agreement or the Notes or the issuance of any Letters of
Credit or any other Fundamental Document.  The obligations of the
Borrower under this Section shall survive the termination of this
Agreement and/or the payment of the Loans and/or expiration of
the Letters of Credit.

            SECTION 9.5.  Indemnity.

            Further, by the execution hereof, the Borrower agrees
to indemnify and hold harmless the Administrative Agent and the
Lenders and the Issuing Lenders and their respective directors,
officers, employees and agents (each, an "Indemnified Party")
from and against any and all expenses (including reasonable fees
and disbursements of counsel), losses, claims, damages and
liabilities arising out of any claim, litigation, investigation
or proceeding (regardless of whether any such Indemnified Party
is a party thereto) in any way relating to the transactions
contemplated hereby, but excluding therefrom all expenses,
losses, claims, damages, and liabilities arising out of or
resulting from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the

5


                                                                         73



Indemnified Party seeking indemnification, provided, however,
that the Borrower shall not be liable for the fees and expenses
of more than one separate firm for all such Indemnified Parties
in connection with any one such action or any separate but
substantially similar or related actions in the same
jurisdiction, nor shall the Borrower be liable for any settlement
of any proceeding effected without the Borrower's written
consent, and provided further, however, that this Section 9.5
shall not be construed to expand the scope of the Borrower's
reimbursement obligations specified in Section 9.4.  The
obligations of the Borrower under this Section 9.5 shall survive
the termination of this Agreement and/or payment of the Loans
and/or the expiration of the Letters of Credit.

            SECTION 9.6.  CHOICE OF LAW.

            THIS AGREEMENT AND THE NOTES HAVE BEEN EXECUTED AND
DELIVERED IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK AND SHALL IN ALL RESPECTS BE
CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH, AND GOVERNED BY, THE LAWS OF SUCH
STATE APPLICABLE TO CONTRACTS MADE AND TO BE PERFORMED WHOLLY
WITHIN SUCH STATE AND, IN THE CASE OF PROVISIONS RELATING TO
INTEREST RATES, ANY APPLICABLE LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES OF
AMERICA.

            SECTION 9.7.  No Waiver.

            No failure on the part of the Administrative Agent, any
Lender or any Issuing Lender to exercise, and no delay in
exercising, any right, power or remedy hereunder or under the
Notes or with regards to the Letters of Credit shall operate as a
waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any
such right, power or remedy preclude any other or further
exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or
remedy.  All remedies hereunder are cumulative and are not
exclusive of any other remedies provided by law.

            SECTION 9.8.  Extension of Maturity.

            Except as otherwise specifically provided in Article 8
hereof, should any payment of principal of or interest on the
Notes or any other amount due hereunder become due and payable on
a day other than a Business Day, the maturity thereof shall be
extended to the next succeeding Business Day and, in the case of
principal, interest shall be payable thereon at the rate herein
specified during such extension.

            SECTION 9.9.  Amendments, etc.

            No modification, amendment or waiver of any provision
of this Agreement, and no consent to any departure by the
Borrower herefrom or therefrom, shall in any event be effective
unless the same shall be in writing and signed or consented to in
writing by the Required Lenders, and then such waiver or consent
shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the

5


                                                                         74



purpose for which given; provided, however, that no such
modification or amendment shall without the written consent of
each Lender affected thereby (x) increase the Commitment of a
Lender or postpone or waive any scheduled reduction in the
Commitments, or (y) alter the stated maturity or principal amount
of any installment of any Loan, or decrease the rate of interest
payable thereon, or the rate at which the Facility Fees or letter
of credit fees accrue or (z) waive a default under Section 7(b)
hereof with respect to a scheduled principal installment of any
Loan; and provided, further that no such modification or
amendment shall without the written consent of all of the Lenders
(i) amend or modify any provision of this Agreement which
provides for the unanimous consent or approval of the Lenders, or
(ii) amend this Section 9.9 or the definition of Required
Lenders; and provided, further that no such modification or
amendment shall decrease the Commitment of any Lender without the
written consent of such Lender.  No such amendment or
modification may adversely affect the rights and obligations of
the Administrative Agent or any Issuing Lender hereunder without
its prior written consent; and provided, further that the consent
of the Lenders shall not be required with respect to any
amendment to this Agreement pursuant to Section 2.23.  No notice
to or demand on the Borrower shall entitle the Borrower to any
other or further notice or demand in the same, similar or other
circumstances.  Each holder of a Note shall be bound by any
amendment, modification, waiver or consent authorized as provided
herein, whether or not a Note shall have been marked to indicate
such amendment, modification, waiver or consent and any consent
