1985 Incentive Compensation Plan (the 'Plan') a copy of which is attached 
hereto as Exhibit 'A' and made a part hereof; and

         WHEREAS, the Executive Compensation and Stock Option Committee of

1.   This Option is granted under and pursuant to the Plan and is subject to
     each and all of the provisions thereof.

2.   The Option price shall be $_____________ per share.

3.   This Option is not transferable by the Employee otherwise than by will or
     the laws of descent and distribution, and is exercisable only by the
     Employee during his lifetime. This Option may not be transferred, assigned,
     pledged, or hypothecated by the Employee during his lifetime, whether by
     operation of law or otherwise, and is not subject to execution, attachment
     or similar process.

4.   This Option may not be exercised before the first anniversary of the date
     hereof, nor may it be exercised as to more than one-fourth the number of
     shares covered herein before the second anniversary hereof, nor may it be
     exercised as to more than one-half the number of shares covered herein
     before the third anniversary hereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing this
     Option shall become exercisable in full upon the retirement of the Employee
     because of age or permanent and total disability, or upon his death.

5.   This Option will expire ten (10) years from the date hereof, unless sooner
     terminated or cancelled in accordance with the provisions of the Plan.

6.   This Option shall be exercised by delivering to the Secretary of the
     Company at its head office a written notice stating the number of shares as
     to which the Option is exercised; provided, however, that no such exercise
     shall be with respect to fewer than twenty-five shares or the remaining
     shares covered by the Option if fewer than twenty-five. The written notice
     must be accompanied by payment of the full Option price for such shares.
     Payment may be in cash or shares of the Company's Common Stock, or a
     combination thereof; provided, however, that any payment in shares shall be
     in strict compliance with all procedural rules established by the
     Committee.

7.   All rights of the Employee in this Option, to the extent that it has not
     been exercised, shall terminate upon the death of the Employee (except as
     hereinafter provided) or termination of his employment for any reason other
     than retirement because of age or permanent and total disability, and in
     case of such retirement three (3) months from the date thereof; provided,
     however, the Employee may, by written notice to the Secretary of the
     Company, designate one or more persons, including his legal representative,
     who shall by reason of the Employee's death acquire the right to exercise
     all or a portion of the employee's rights under this Option. The person so
     designated must exercise the Option within one year after the death of the
     Employee. The person designated to exercise the Option after the Employee's
     death shall be bound by the provisions of the Plan.

8.   The Employee hereby designates the following person(s) as the one(s) who
