POWER OF SALE, to secure to the Lessor the payment of the Rent, the Termination
Value and all other sums owing to the Lessor under the Lease and the performance
and observance of the terms, covenants, warranties, conditions, agreements and
obligations under the Lease. If the Lessee shall pay all sums due under the
Lease when due according to the terms thereof and shall otherwise fully and
properly perform and comply withy all of the obligations, agreements, terms and
conditions of the Lease, then this conveyance shall become null and void.

      In the event of the occurrence of a Lease Event of Default, then the
Lessor shall have all rights and remedies set forth in the Lease including,
without limitation the right to foreclose its interest (or cause such interest
to be foreclosed) in any or all of the Property in accordance with

                                       4

preservation of the Property; provided, however, that Lessee shall be entitled,
up to 30 days after the termination of the Lessee's occupancy of the Property
to enter the property during normal business hours for the purpose of removing

but not limited to, reasonable Trustee's fees and then as provided in Section
22.2 of the Lease.

     If the Lessor so elects, the Trustee may sell any personal property
covered by this instrument at one or more separate sales in any manner

Lessor and the Lessee further intend and agree that, with respect to that
portion of the Property constituting personal property, for the purpose of

obligations to the Lessor, (i) the Lease shall also be deemed to be a security

and all proceeds of the conversion, voluntary or involuntary, of the foregoing
into cash, investments, securities or other property, whether in the form of
cash, investments, securities or other property to secure such obligations,
effective on the date hereof, to have and to hold such interests in the
Property unto the Lessor and its successors and assigns, forever, provided
always that these presents are upon the express condition that, if all amounts
due under the Lease shall have been paid and satisfied in full, then this
instrument and the estate hereby granted shall cease and become void; (iii) the
possession by the Lessor of notes and such other items of property as
constitute instruments, money, negotiable documents or chattel paper shall be
deemed to be 'possession by the secured party' for purposes of perfecting the
security interest pursuant to Section 9-305 of the UCC; and (iv) notifications
to Persons holding such property, and acknowledgments, receipts or
confirmations from financial intermediaries, bankers or agents (as


                                       5
