                             PART III--NARRATIVE

State below in reasonable detail the reasons why the Form 10-K, 20-F, 11-K,
10-Q, N-SAR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed
within the prescribed time period.


The Registrant hereby represents that it is unable to file its Quarterly Report
on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2002 without unreasonable effort or
expense. The Company's auditors need additional time to complete their review of
certain schedules to the Company's financial statements. The Registrant further
represents that the Form 10-Q will be filed no later than May 20, 2002, which is
the 5th day following the date on which the Form 10-Q was due.

                                                 (ATTACH EXTRA SHEETS IF NEEDED)
                                                                SEC 1344 (11/91)

      MATTHEW PATRICK                           (503)         252-6233, Ext. 293
      -------------------------------        -----------      ------------------

(2)  Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of the
     Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment Company Act
     of 1940 during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter period that the
     registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed? If answer is no,
     identify report(s).

                                                                  [X] Yes [ ] No


(3)  Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from
     the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the
     earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion
                                                                  [ ] Yes [X] No

     If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively
     and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable
     estimate of the results cannot be made.
