          they have any or limber liability & obligation under any of the Loan
          Documents to which Borrower is a party, and Borrower shall fail to
          refract in writing such denial within three (3) days after Bank shall
          have notified Borrower that their denial of liability or obligation
          constitutes an Event of Default.

8.   RIGHTS AND REMEDIES

     8.1  Upon the occurrence of any Event of Default, Bank may, at its option
          and without notice to Borrower, enforce this Agreement enforce any of
          the Loan Documents in accordance with their terms, and/or exercise any
          and all rights and remedies available pursuant to the Loan Documents
          in such manner as Bank IN its sole and exclusive discretion
          determines.

     8.2  Upon The occurrence of any Event of Default Bank and any officer or
          agent of Bank, will hereby be constituted and appointed as true and
          lawful attorney-in-fact of Borrower with the power to sell, assign,
          sue for, collect or compromise payment of all or any part of the
          Collateral in the name of Borrower, or in its own name, or make any
          other disposition of Collateral, or any part thereof, which
          disposition may be for cash, credit or any combination thereof, and
          Bank may purchase all or any part of the Collateral at public sale or,
          if permitted by law, private sale, and in lieu of actual payment of
          such purchase price, may set-off the amount of such price against the
          Obligations.

     8.3  Bank shall have, in addition to any other rights and remedies
          contained herein, and/or in any Loan Document, all of the rights and
          remedies of a secured party under the Uniform Commercial Code in force
          in the State of New Jersey as of the Date of Agreement and all rights
          and remedies available at law or in equity, all of which rights and
          remedies shall be cumulative, to the extent permitted by law.

     8.4  Any notice required to be given by Bank of a sale or other disposition
          of the Collateral or other intended action by Bank made in accordance
          with the terms herein of any Loan Document at least ten (10) days
          prior to such proposed action, shall constitute fair and reasonable
          notice to Borrower of any such action. In the event that any of the
          Collateral is used in conjunction with any real estate, the sale of
          the Collateral in conjunction with and as one parcel with any such
          real estate of Borrower shall be deemed to be a commercially
          reasonable manner of sale. The net proceeds realized by Bank upon any
          such sale or other disposition, after deduction of the expenses of
          retaking, holding, preparing for sale, selling or the like and
          reasonable attorneys' fees and any other expenses incurred by Bank,
          shall be applied toward satisfaction of the Obligations hereunder.
          Bank shall account for and return to Borrower any surplus realized
          upon such sale or other disposition and Borrower shall remain liable
          for any deficiency. The commencement of any action, legal or
          equitable, shall not affect the security interest of Bank in the
          Collateral until the Obligations hereunder or any judgment therefore
          are fully paid.
