Mr. Board, age 47, received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Management

Engineering from Rensselar Polytechnic Institute in 1975 and has twenty-five

confident that Mr. Board will continue our efforts to capitalize and take full

advantage of the synergies that are possible between the two Divisions and
