the other covenants or conditions to be kept, observed and performed by
Tenant, and such default shall continue for thirty (30) days after
notice thereof in writing to Tenant by Landlord without correction

Landlord may declare the term of this Lease ended and terminated by
giving Tenant written notice of such intention, and if possession of the
Leased Premises is not surrendered, Lan dlord may reenter said premises.
Landlord shall have, in addition to the remedy above provided, any other
right or remedy available to Landlord on account of any Tenant default,
either in law or equity. Landlord shall use reasonable efforts to
mitigate its damages.

obligations hereunder, Landlord will keep and maintain Tenant in
exclusive, quiet, peaceable and undisturbed and uninterrupted possession
of the Leased Premis es during the term of this Lease.

17. Condemnation.

If any legally, constituted authority condemns the Building or such
part thereof which shall make the Leased Premises unsuitable for

hereby irrevocably vested with full power and authority to subordinate
this Lease to any mortgage, deed of trust or other lien now existing or
hereafter placed upon the Leased Premises of the Building, and Tenant
agrees upon demand to execute such further instruments subordinating
this Lease or attorning to the holder of any such liens as Landlord
may request. In the event that Tenant should fail to execute any
instrument of subordination herein require d to be executed by Tenant
promptly as requested, Tenant hereby irrevocably constitutes Landlord
as its attorney-in-fact to execute such instrument in Tenant's name,
place and stead, it being agreed that such power is one coupled with
an interest. Tenan t agrees that it will from time to time upon request
by Landlord execute and deliver to such persons as Landlord shall

modified), stating the dates to which rent and other charges

is not in default hereunder (or if Tenant alleges a default stating
the nature of such alleged default) and further stating such other
matters as Landlord shall reasonably require.

19. Security Deposit.

The Security Deposit shall be held by Landlord without liability
for interest and as security for the performance by Tenant of
Tenant's covenants and obligations under this Lease, it being expressly

advance payment of rental or a measure of Landlord's damages in case
of default by Tenant. Unless otherwise provided by mandatory non-waivable
law or regulation, Landlord may commingle the Security Deposit with
Landlord' s other funds. Landlord may, from time to time, without
prejudice to any other remedy, use the Security Deposit to the extent
necessary to make good any arrearages of rent or to satisfy any other
covenant or obligation of Tenant hereunder. Following any such
application of the Security Deposit, Tenant shall pay to Landlord on
demand the amount so applied in order to restore the Security Deposit
to its original amount. If Tenant is not in default at the termination
of this Lease, the balance of the Secu rity Deposit remaining after any
such application shall be returned by Landlord to Tenant. If Landlord
