                  SEC File No. 005-87838

  Dear Mr. Lubowitz:

        We have limited our review of the filing to those issues we have 
addressed in our
  comments. In some of our comments, we may ask you to provide us with 
information so
  we may better understand your disclosure.

          Please respond to this letter by amending your filing, by providing 
the requested
  information, or by advising us when you will provide the requested response. 
If you do not
  believe our comments apply to your facts and circumstances or do not believe 
  amendment is appropriate, please tell us why in your response.

         After reviewing any amendment to your filing and the information you 
provide in
  response to these comments, we may have additional comments.

  1.      Your offer is currently a single offer made for an aggregate amount, 
in value, of
          two classes of securities without specifying the amount of securities 
you are
          seeking to purchase in each class. This does not meet the 
requirements of Item 4
          of Schedule TO and Rule 1004 of Regulation M-A, which require you to 
state the
          total number of securities of each class that you are seeking to 
purchase in the
          offer. Please revise and advise us as to how you plan to insure that 
          shareholders have the required information for the full twenty 
business days the
          offer is open.
