ITEM 4.  Changes in Registrant's Certifying Accountant.


     On March 13, 2000, the Registrant's board of directors decided to retain,
subject to the approval of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York, the accounting firm of Ernst & Young LLP ("E&Y") to act
as the principal accountant to audit the Registrant's financial statements,
effective March 13, 2000.  As previously reported on Form 8-K filed on
December 9, 1999, the Registrant filed in the United States Bankruptcy Court
for the Southern District of New York a petition and plan of reorganization
under Chapter 11 so as to implement the consensual prearranged financial
restructuring whereby, among other things, holders of the Registrant's 11-1/4%
Senior Subordinated Notes will convert that debt into shares of new common
stock.  Implementation of the restructuring is subject to consummation of the
Chapter 11 plan, which requires, among other things, Court approval, and no
assurances of such approval can be given.

     During the Registrant's two most recent fiscal years, the Registrant did
not consult with E&Y regarding either the application of accounting principles
to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit
opinion that might be rendered on the financial statements of the Registrant.
In addition, the Registrant did not consult with E&Y during the Registrant's
two most recent fiscal years regarding any matter that was the subject of a
disagreement or a reportable event within the meaning of Item 304 of the
Securities and Exchange Commission's Regulation S-K.
