WOMEN INVESTORS COMMITTEE

On November 22, 1994, the Wall Street Journal cited efforts by the Women
Investors Committee to encourage companies to tap the very large pool of
female talent for top executive positions.  The pitch - with less than 1% of
the executive management positions and less than 7% of seats on Fortune 500
companies' boards of directors held by women, companies that look to the
reserve of female candidates for such positions will enjoy a competitive
advantage.

The Women Investors Committee believes that stockholder return will be
maximized if female talent is recognized in selecting leaders.  Women
investors who agree are invited to express their views about this important
subject to the public companies in which they invest.  Each person
participating in the effort is being urged to write letters that will be sent
out together on March 14, "Women Investors Day".  On the same day, receptions
will be held in major US cities to celebrate the effort and to initiate a
long term agenda.
