the day of payment whereon the same ought to be paid as aforesaid, or if default
shall be made in any of the covenants or agreements herein contained to be kept
by Lessee, Lessee's heirs, personal representatives, assigns, and successors in
interest, it shall and may be lawful for the Lessor, Lessor's heirs, personal representatives,
agents, attorneys, assigns, or successors in interest, at Lessor's election, to
declare said term ended and to re-enter the said premises, or any part thereof,
either with or without process of law, and to expel, remove, and to put out the
Lessee, or any other person or persons occupying the demised premises, using such
force as may be necessary in so doing, and to repossess and enjoy the same premises
again as in its first and former state, and to distrain for any rent that may be
due thereon any property belonging to Lessee, whether or not the same be exempt
from execution and distress by law, and Lessee in that case hereby waives any and
all legal rights which Lessee now has or may have, to hold or retain any such property
under any exemption laws now or hereafter in force in the State of New Mexico, or
in any other way. It is the intent of the parties hereto to hereby recognize in
Lessor, Lessor's heirs, personal representatives, assigns or successors in interest,
a valid first lien as provided by the laws of New Mexico, upon any and all goods,
chattels, and other property belonging to Lessee and located in said premises, as
security for the payment of said rent and fulfillment of the faithful performance
of the agreements, covenants, terms, and conditions hereof as herein provided, anything
hereinbefore mentioned to the contrary notwithstanding. And if at any time said
term shall be ended at such election of Lessor, Lessor's heirs, personal representatives,

heirs, personal representatives, assigns, or successors in interest, do hereby covenant
and agree to surrender and deliver up the above-described premises and property

in interest, immediately upon the termination of said term as aforesaid, and if
Lessee shall remain in possession of the same ten (10) days after ,notice of such
default, or after the termination of the Lease in any or the ways above named, Lessee
shall be deemed guilty of a forcible detained of said premises under the laws of
New Mexico and shall be subject to all the conditions and provisions above named,
and shall also be subject to eviction and removal forcible or otherwise, with or
without process of law as above stated. Further, it is covenanted and agreed by
and between the parties hereto that at any time after any such termination, the
Lessor may relet the demised premises, or any part thereof, in the name of the Lessor
or otherwise, for such term and on such conditions as the Lessor, in Lessor's sole
and absolute discretion, may determine, and may collect and receive the rent therefor.
Moreover, in the event Lessor relets the demised premises, or any part thereof,
it is explicitly understood and agreed by and between the parties hereto that the
term may be greater or lesser than the period which would otherwise have constituted

of other concessions which may be reasonably required to induce another party to
lease the demised premises. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the
Lessor shall have no obligation hereunder to relet the demised premises, or any
part thereof, and shall in no way be responsible or liable for any failure to collect
any rent due upon such reletting. It is also covenanted and agreed by and between
the parties hereto that no such termination of this Lease shall relieve the Lessee
of its liabilities and obligations under this Lease, and such liabilities and obligations
shall survive any such termination. In the event of any such termination, whether
or not the demised premises, or any part thereof, shall have been relet, the total
remaining balance of the rent which would be due and payable for the remainder of
there term of this Lease, if this Lease were still in effect, less the net proceeds
of any reletting effected pursuant to the Lessor's sole discretion, after deducting
from the net proceeds all of the Lessor's expenses in connection with such reletting,
including, without limitation, all repossessions costs, brokerage commissions, legal
expenses, reasonable attorney's fees, alteration costs, and expenses of preparation
for such reletting, shall become immediately due and payable, as for liquidated
damages of the Lessee's default. Nothing herein contained, however, shall limit
or prejudice the right of Lessor to prove for and obtain as liquidated damages by
reason of such termination, an amount equal to the maximum allowed by any statute
or rule of law in effect at the time when, and governing the proceedings in which,
such damages are to be proved, whether or not such amount be greater than, equal
to, or less than the amount of the difference referred to above, and whether or
not such amount shall be immediately or otherwise due and payable. Further, it is
covenanted and agreed to by and between the parties hereto, that in addition to
other remedies provided for in this Lease, the Lessor shall be entitled to restraint
by injunction of the violation, or attempted or threatened violation, of any agreement
or covenant of this Lease, or to a decree specifically compelling performance of
any such agreement or covenant. The Lessee, the Lessee's heirs, personal representatives,
assigns and successors in interest, hereby expressly waives, so far as permitted
by law, the service of any notice of intention to re-enter provided for in any statute,
or of the institution of legal proceedings to that end. Lessee, the Lessee's heirs,
personal representatives, assigns, and successors in interest, also

breach or threatened breach by the Lessee of any of the agreements and covenants
herein contained.

premises, agrees and covenants with Lessor that the delay or omission in the enforcement
of any of the agreements and covenants herein contained, or in the exercise of any
Lessor's rights hereunder, shall not affect the duty of the Lessee to thereafter
faithfully fulfill and perform all of the agreements and covenants herein contained,
and that the failure, neglect, or omission of Lessor to terminate this Lease for
any one or more breaches of any agreements and covenants hereof, shall not be deemed
a consent by Lessor of such breach and shall not impede, impair, stop, bar, or prevent
Lessor from thereafter terminating this Lease, either for such violation, or for
prior or subsequent violations of any covenant or agreement hereof.

 XXI.     BINDING ON HEIRS, PERSONAL REPRESENTATIVES, ASSIGNS, AND SUCCESSORS IN
          INTEREST.
