6.   NOTIFICATION AND PAYMENTS; COLLECTION OF COLLATERAL; USE 
     OF COLLATERAL BY DEBTOR

     6.1   Secured Party, before or after the occurrence of any Event of
Default, defined below, and without notice to Debtor, may notify any or all
Obligors of the existence of the Security Interest and may direct the Obligors
to make all payments on the Collateral to Secured Party. Until Secured Party has
notified the Obligors to remit payments directly to it, Debtor, at Debtor's own
cost and expense, shall collect or cause to be collected the accounts and monies

                                      -5-


due under the accounts, documents, instruments and general intangibles or 
pursuant to the terms of the chattel paper. Secured Party shall not be liable 
or responsible for any embezzlement, conversion, negligence or default by 
Debtor or Debtor's agents with respect to such collections; all agents used in 
such collections shall be agents of Debtor and not agents of Secured Party. 
Unless Secured Party notifies Debtor in writing that it waives one or more of 
the requirements set forth in this sentence, any payments or other proceeds of 
Collateral received by Debtor, before or after notification to Obligors, shall 
be held by Debtor in trust for Secured Party in the same form in which 
received, shall not be commingled with any assets of Debtor and shall be turned 
over to Secured Party not later than the next business day following the day of 
receipt.  All payments and other proceeds of Collateral received by Secured 
Party directly or from Debtor shall be applied to the Obligation in such order 
and manner and at such time as Secured Party, in its sole discretion, shall 
determine. In addition, Debtor shall promptly notify Secured Party of the 
return to or possession by Debtor of goods underlying any Collateral; Debtor 
shall hold the same in trust for Secured Party and shall dispose of the same as 
Secured Party directs.

     6.2   Secured Party, before or after the occurrence of an Event of Default,
may demand, collect and sue on the Collateral (either in Debtor's or Secured
Party's name), enforce, compromise, settle or discharge the Collateral and
endorse Debtor's name on any instruments, documents, or chattel paper included
in or pertaining to the Collateral; Debtor hereby irrevocably appoints Secured
Party its attorney in fact for all such purposes.

     6.3   Until the occurrence of an Event of Default, Debtor may: (i) use, 
consume and sell any inventory included in the Collateral in any lawful manner 
in the ordinary course of Debtor's business provided that all sales shall be at 
commercially reasonable prices; and (ii) subject to Paragraphs 6.1 and 6.2 
above, retain possession of any other Collateral and use it in any lawful 
manner consistent with this Agreement.

7.   COLLATERAL IN THE POSSESSION OF SECURED PARTY

     7.1   Secured Party shall use such reasonable care in handling, preserving 
and protecting the Collateral in its possession as it uses in handling similar 
property for its own account. Secured Party, however, shall have no liability 
for the loss, destruction or disappearance of any Collateral unless there is 
affirmative proof of gross negligence or a lack of due care; the lack of due 
care shall not be implied solely by virtue of any loss, destruction or 
disappearance.

     7.2   Debtor shall be solely responsible for taking any and all actions to 
preserve rights against all Obligors; Secured Party shall not be obligated to 
take any such actions whether or not the Collateral is in Secured Party's 
possession. Debtor waives presentment and protest with respect to any 
instrument included in the Collateral on which Debtor is in any way liable and 
waives notice of any action taken by Secured Party with respect to any 
instrument, document or chattel paper included in any Collateral that is in the 
possession of Secured Party.

8.   EVENTS OF DEFAULT; REMEDIES

     8.1   The occurrence of any of the following events or conditions shall 
constitute and is hereby defined to be an "Event of Default":

                                      -6-


           (a)  Any failure or neglect to perform or observe any of the terms,
               provisions, or covenants of this Agreement.

           (b)  The occurrence of any event of default under the Credit
               Agreement.

     8.2   Secured Party, so far as may be lawful, may purchase all or any part
of the Collateral offered at any public or private sale made in the enforcement
of Secured Party's rights and remedies hereunder consistent with the Uniform
Commercial Code.

     8.3   Any demand or notice of sale, disposition or other intended action
hereunder or in connection herewith, whether required by the Uniform Commercial
Code or otherwise, shall be deemed to be commercially reasonable and effective
if such demand or notice is given to Debtor at least ten (10) days prior to such
sale, disposition or other intended action, in the manner provided herein for
the giving of notices.

     8.4   Debtor shall pay all reasonable costs and expenses, including without
limitation costs of Uniform Commercial Code searches, court costs and reasonable
attorneys' fees, incurred by Secured Party in enforcing payment and performance
of the Obligation or in exercising the rights and remedies of Secured Party
hereunder. All such costs and expenses shall be secured by this Agreement and by
all deeds of trust and other lien and security documents securing the
Obligation. In the event of any court proceedings, reasonable court costs and
reasonable attorneys' fees shall be set by the court and not by jury and shall
be included in any judgment obtained by Secured Party.

     8.5   In addition to any remedies provided herein for an Event of Default,
Secured Party shall have all the rights and remedies afforded a secured party
under the Uniform Commercial Code and all other legal and equitable remedies
allowed under applicable law. No failure on the part of Secured Party to
exercise any of its rights hereunder arising upon any Event of Default shall be
construed to prejudice its rights upon the occurrence of any other or subsequent
Event of Default. No delay on the part of Secured Party is exercising any such
rights shall be construed to preclude it from the exercise thereof at any time
while that Event of Default is continuing. Secured Party may enforce any one or
more rights or remedies hereunder successively or concurrently. By accepting
payment or performance of any of the Obligation after its due date, Secured
Party shall not thereby waive the agreement contained herein that time is of the
essence, nor shall Secured Party waive either its right to require prompt
payment or performance when due of the remainder of the Obligation or its right
to consider the failure to so pay or perform an Event of Default.

9.   MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS

     9.1   The acceptance of this Agreement by Secured Party shall not be
considered a waiver of or in any way to affect or impair any other security that
Secured Party may have, acquire simultaneously herewith, or hereafter acquire
for the payment or performance of the Obligation, nor shall the taking by
Secured Party at any time of any such additional security be construed as a
waiver of or in any way to affect or impair the Security Interest; Secured Party

                                      -7-



may resort, for the payment or performance of the Obligation, to its several 
securities therefor in such order and manner as it may determine.

(the "UCC"). This Agreement shall be governed by and construed according to 
the laws of the State of Arizona. Each provision of this Agreement shall be 
interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law,

shall not affect the remainder hereof which shall be effective as though the 
void or invalid provision had not been contained herein.

     9.5 No modification, rescission, waiver, release or amendment of any 
provision of this Agreement shall be made except by a written agreement

effect until actual receipt by Secured Party of written notice of its 
revocation as to future transactions and shall remain in full force thereafter 
until all of the Obligation incurred before the receipt of such notice, and all 
of the Obligation incurred thereafter under commitments extended by Secured 
Party before the receipt of such notice, shall have been paid and performed in

acting or purporting to act on its behalf. Debtor is and shall continue to be 
fully informed as to all aspects of the business affairs of Borrower that it

request of any person primarily obligated therefor, to renew, compromise, 
extend, accelerate or otherwise change the time for payment or performance of,
