               (2) Terminate LESSEE'S right to possession of said premises,
thereby terminating this Lease, and recover from LESSEE:

                 (a) The worth at the time of award or the unpaid rent which
had been earned at the time of termination of the Lease;

                 (b) The worth at the time of award of the amount by which
the unpaid rent which would have been earned after termination of the Lease

could have been reasonably avoided;

                 (c) The worth at the time of award of the amount by which
the unpaid rent for the balance of the term after the time of award exceeds
the amount of rental loss that LESSEE proves could be reasonably avoided; and

detriment proximately caused by LESSEE'S failure to perform LESSEE'S obligations

service voluntarily granted or performed by either party shall give the other
any contractual right by custom, estoppel or otherwise.

statement on or accompanying any payment after default, any payment shall be
deemed applied first to late payment charges then to the expenses of the LESSOR
resulting from the default or incurred to pursue this remedy; then to interest
and then to the earliest unpaid amount of any rent or obligation under this
Lease and acceptance of any payment shall not be deemed an accord and
satisfaction. The party entitled to payment may accept any payment without
prejudice to his right to recover the balance due or to pursue other remedies,
