by the parties hereto shall be and are hereby made a part of this lease.

          7.   CARE AND SURRENDER OF PREMISES.  Lessee shall take good care
of the Premises and shall promptly make all necessary repairs except those
required herein to be made by Lessor.  At the expiration or sooner
termination of this lease, Lessee, without notice, will immediately and
peacefully quit and surrender the Premises in good order, condition and
repair (damage by reasonable wear, the elements, or fire expected). Lessee
shall be responsible for removal of all personal property from the Premises,
(excepting fixtures being that which is attached to the Premises, and
property of the Lessor) including, but not limited to, the removal of
Lessee's communication cabling, telephone equipment and signage.  Lessee
shall be responsible for repairing any damage to the Premises caused by such

vacate the Premises and for a final cleaning of the Premises, including, but

caused by reasonable wear, and removal and disposal of Lessee's personal
property remaining in the Premises.

          8.   ALTERATIONS.  Lesser shall not make any alterations or
improvements in, or additions to said Premises without first obtaining the
written consent of Lessor, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. 
Subject to Paragraph 34. TENANT IMPROVEMENT ALLOWANCE, such alterations,
additions and improvements shall be at the sole cost and expense of Lessee
and shall become the property of Lessor and shall remain and be surrendered
with the Premises as a part thereof at the termination of this lease, without
disturbance, molestation or inquiry.  Lessor has physically inspected
Lessee's Premises located at 2013 Fourth Avenue, Seattle, Washington and
hereby grants approval to Lessee to construct tenant improvements of similar
design within Lessee's Premises.  Such approval by Lessor in no way limits
Lessee's right to revise and/or change the design standards of said tenant

          9.   RESTRICTIONS.  Lessee will not use or permit to be used in
said Premises anything that will increase the rate of insurance on said
building or any part thereof, nor anything that may be dangerous to life or
limb; nor in any manner deface or injure said building or any part thereof;
nor overload any floor or part thereof; nor permit any objectionable noise or


order to escape or to be emitted from said Premises, or do anything or permit
anything to be done upon said Premises in any way tending to create a
nuisance or to disturb any other tenant or occupant of any part of said
building.  Lessee, at Lessee's expense, will comply with all health, fire and
police regulations respecting said Premises, subject to Paragraph 37. ADA
COMPLIANCE/FIRE SAFETY.  The Premises shall not be used for lodging or
sleeping, and no animals or birds will be allowed in the building.

          10.  WEIGHT RESTRICTIONS.  Safes, furniture or bulky articles may
be moved in or out of said Premises only at such hours and in such manner as
will least inconvenience other tenants, which hours and manner shall be at
the discretion of Lessor.  No safe or other article of over 2,000 pounds
shall be moved into said Premises without the consent of Lessor, and Lessor
shall have the right to locate the position of any article of such weight in
said Premises if Lessor so desires.

          11.  SIGN RESTRICTION.  No sign, picture, advertisement or notice
shall be displayed, inscribed, painted or affixed to any of the glass or
woodwork of the building without the prior approval of Lessor.

          12.  LOCKS.  No additional locks shall be placed upon any doors of
the Premises.  Keys will be furnished to each door lock.  At the termination
of the lease, Lessee shall surrender all keys to the Premises whether paid
for or not.

          13.  KEY.  Lessor, his janitor, engineer or other agents may retain
a pass key to said Premises to enable him to examine the Premises from time
to time with reference to any emergency or to the general maintenance of said

          14.  TELEPHONE SERVICE.  If Lessee desires telephonic or any other
electric connection, Lessor will direct the electricians as to where and how
the wires are to be introduced, and without such directions no boring or
cutting for wires in installation thereof will be permitted.

          15.  SERVICES.  Lessor shall maintain Premises and the public and
common areas of building, such as lobbies, stairs, corridors and restrooms,
in reasonably good order and condition except for damage occasioned by the
act of Lessee.

          Lessor shall furnish Premises with electricity for lighting and
operation of office machines used in Lessee's business, heat and normal
office air-conditioning sufficient to maintain a reasonable temperature at
all times in all areas of the Premises, and elevator services, during the
ordinary business hours of the building.  Should Lessee or a division of
Lessee require HVAC services on a 24-hour basis, said after hours services
shall be subject to additional costs which may be determined by the extra
amount of electricity and water required over and above standard operating
hours.  Air-conditioning units and electricity therefore for special
air-conditioning requirements, such as for computer centers, shall be at
Lessee's expense.  Lessor


shall also provide lighting replacement for Lessor furnished lighting, toilet
room supplies, window washing with reasonable frequency, and customary
janitor service, in accordance with Exhibit "C", and window washing at least
two (2) times per year.  Lessee acknowledges the building's exterior window
washing schedule is in hiatus due to mechanical failure of window washing
riggings.  Lessor is pursuing corrective action and anticipates the next
window washing to commence no later than October 15, 1997, provided that if
washing of exterior windows of the Premises does not commence by such date,
or if window washing is not completed at least two (2) times per calendar
year, Lessee shall be entitled to reduce the monthly rent payable by fifty
percent (50%) for the entire Premises affected (Example: If the 18th floor
windows are not washed, then the reduction would be based upon 50% of the
monthly rent attributable to the 18th floor premises only; if the 5th and/or
18th floor windows are not washed, then the reduction would be based upon 50%
of the monthly rent attributable to the 5th and/or 18th floor premises only)
until washing of such windows commences and, each calendar year thereafter,
the second washing is completed.

          Lessor shall not be liable to Lessee for any loss or damage caused
by or resulting from any variation, interruption or any failure of said
services due to any cause whatsoever, unless caused by Lessor's negligence. 
No temporary interruption or failure of such services incident to the making
of repairs, alterations, or improvements, or due to accident or strike or
conditions or events not under Lessor's control shall be deemed as an
eviction of Lessee or relieve Lessee from any of Lessee's obligations
hereunder, unless caused by Lessor's negligence.

          In the event of any lack of attention on the part of Lessor and any
dissatisfaction with the service of the building, or any unreasonable
annoyance of any kind, Lessee is requested to make complaints at Lessor's
building office and not to Lessor's employees or agents seen within the
building.  Lessee is further requested to remember that Lessor is as anxious
as Lessee that a high grade service be maintained, and that the Premises be
kept in a state to enable Lessee to transact business with the greatest
possible ease and comfort. The rules and regulations are not made to
unnecessarily restrict Lessee, but to enable Lessor to operate the building
to the best advantage of both parties hereto.  To this end Lessor shall have
the right to waive from time to time such part or parts of these rules and
regulations as in his judgment may not be necessary for the proper
maintenance or operation of the building or consistent with good service, and
may from time to time make such further reasonable rules and regulations as
in his judgment may be needed for the safety, care and cleanliness of the
Premises and the building and for the preservation of order therein.

          16.  SOLICITORS.  Lessor will make an effort to keep solicitors out
of the building, and Lessee will not oppose Lessor in his attempt to
accomplish this end.

          17.  FLOOR PLAN.  The floor plan and specifications for Lessee's
occupancy shall be attached hereto and marked Exhibit "A" which shall be
approved by both Lessor and Lessee, both of whose approval shall not be
unreasonably withheld.


          18.  ASSIGNMENT.  Lessee will not assign this Lease or any part
thereof without first obtaining the written consent of Lessor, which shall
not be unreasonably withheld.  In the event such written consent shall be
given, no other or subsequent assignment shall be made without the previous
written consent of Lessor, which shall not be unreasonably withheld.

          Lessee may sublet all or any portion of the Premises at any time,
on such terms as Lessee deems appropriate, without the consent of Lessor,
provided that notwithstanding such sublease, Lessee shall remain liable for
all of its obligations under this Lease.

          19.  OPERATING SERVICES AND REAL ESTATE TAXES.  The annual base
rental rate per rentable square foot in Paragraph 3 includes Lessee's
proportionate share of Operating Services and Real Estate Taxes for the first
twelve months of the lease term, "Base Year Costs".  Only actual increases
from these Base Year Costs, if any, will be passed on to Lessee on a
proportionate share basis.  In no case will the cost of Operating Services
increase more than five percent (5%) per year over the Base Year amount.



For computing the Base Year Costs, the base year shall be the calendar year
stated herein or if a specific calendar year is not stated herein then the
base year shall be the calendar year in which the lease term commences.  The
base year for the 5th floor and 18th floor Premises shall be the calendar
year 1997.  The base year for the 6th floor Premises shall be the calendar
year 1998.


The Comparison Year(s) shall be the calendar year(s) subsequent to the base


"Operating Services" include, but are not limited to, the charges incurred by
Lessor for: building operation salaries, benefits, management fee of five
percent (5%) of gross income for the building, insurance, electricity,
janitorial, supplies, telephone, HVAC, repair and maintenance, window
washing, water and sewer, security, landscaping, disposal and elevator.
Operating Services shall also include the amortization cost of capital
investment items and of the installation thereof, which are primarily for the
purpose of safety, saving energy or reducing operating costs, or which may be
required by governmental authority (all such costs shall be amortized over
the reasonable life of the capital investment item, with the reasonable life
and amortization schedule being determined in accordance with generally
accepted accounting principles). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary
contained herein, Operating Services shall not include any of the following:


          (i)  real estate taxes

          (ii) legal fees, auditing fees, brokerage commissions, advertising
costs, or other related expenses incurred by Lessor in an effort to generate
rental income;

          (iii) repairs, alterations, additions, improvements, or
replacements made to rectify or correct any defect in the original design,
materials or workmanship of the building or common areas (but not including
repairs, alterations, additions, improvements or replacements made as a
result of ordinary wear and tear);

          (iv) damage and repairs attributable to fire or other casualty;

          (v)  damage and repairs necessitated by the negligence or willful
misconduct of Lessor, Lessor's employees, contractors or agents;

          (vi) executive salaries to the extent that such services are not in
connection with the management, operating, repair or maintenance of the

          (vii) Lessor's general overhead expenses not related to the

          (viii) legal fees, accountant's fees and other expenses incurred
in connection with disputes with tenants or other occupants of the building
or associated with the enforcement of the terms of any leases with tenants or
the defense of Lessor's title to or interest in the building or any part
thereof unless the outcome is to the financial benefit of all tenants;

          (ix) costs (including permit, license and inspection fees) incurred
in renovating or otherwise improving, decorating, painting or altering (1)
vacant space (excluding common areas) in the building or (2) space for
tenants or other occupants in the building and costs incurred in supplying
any item or service to less than all of the tenants in the building;

          (x)  costs incurred due to a violation by Lessor or any other
tenant of the building of the terms and conditions of a lease;

          (xi) cost of any specific service provided to Lessee or other
occupants of the building for which Lessor is reimbursed (but not including
Operating Services and Real Estate Tax increases above Base Year Costs to the
extent reimbursed Lessor) or any other expense for which Lessor is or will be
reimbursed by another source (i.e., expenses covered by insurance or

          (xii) costs and expenses which would be capitalized under
generally accepted accounting principles, with the exception of the capital
investment items specified hereinabove;


          (xiii) building management fees in excess of the management fees
specified hereinabove;

          (xiv) cost incurred with owning and/or operating the parking
lot(s) serving the building by independent parking operator(s);

          (xv) fees paid to Lessor or any affiliate of Lessor for goods or
services in excess of the fees that would typically be charged by unrelated,
independent persons or entities for similar goods and services;

          (xvi) rent called for under any ground lease or master lease;

          (xvii) principal and/or interest payments called for under any
debt secured by a mortgage or deed of trust on the building; and

Operating Services shall be adjusted for the Base Year and all Comparison
Year(s) to reflect the greater of actual occupancy or 95% occupancy.


Real Estate Taxes shall be the taxes paid by Lessor in the base year and each
respective Comparison Year.  Real Estate Taxes shall be a separate category
and shall be treated as such.


Lessee's share of Base Year and Comparison Year(s) Costs shall be a fraction,
the numerator of which shall be the number of rentable square feet contained
in the leased Premises on the last day of the year before the Comparison Year
and the denominator of which shall be the number of rentable square feet in
the building in which the leased Premises are located (390.659/RSF).


Any adjustment to Base Year Costs will commence to occur in Month 13 of the
lease term with subsequent adjustments commencing every twelve months of the
lease term or in Months 25, 37, 49, etc. as appropriate under the lease term.
Lessee shall be responsible for any increase between Lessee's proportionate
share of Base Year Costs and Lessee's proportionate share of each respective
Comparison Year(s) Costs.  The increase shall be the increase to each expense
individually.  These costs shall be initially calculated based on estimated
(projected) costs with reconciliation to actual costs when annual audited
numbers are completed. For the purpose of calculating projected increases to
Base Year Costs, Lessor shall review historical data to predict if any
estimated increases would be anticipated in a Comparison Year(s).  If they
are, then commencing in Month 13 and/or every twelve month period thereafter,
Lessor will assess a monthly charge to be paid together with monthly base
rent.  Once actual cost data for


Comparison year(s) Real Estate Taxes and Operating Services for the entire
building is formulated in accordance with generally accepted accounting
principles and adjusted to the greater of actual average occupancy over such
year or 95% occupancy, then Lessee's estimated pass-through costs shall be
corrected with Lessee or Lessor, as appropriate, reimbursing the other for
the difference between the estimated and actual costs, at that time in a lump
sum payment.

Upon termination of this lease, the amount of any corrected amount between
estimated and actual costs with respect to the final comparison year shall
survive the termination of the lease and shall be paid to Lessee or Lessor as
appropriate within thirty (30) days after final reconciliation.

Computation of or adjustment to Operating Services and/or Real Estate Taxes
pursuant to this paragraph or to rent pursuant to Paragraph 3 shall be
computed based on a three hundred sixty-five (365) day year.

For an example, see Exhibit B attached hereto.

          20.  ADDITIONAL TAXES OR ASSESSMENTS.  Should there presently be in
effect or should there be enacted during the term of this lease, any law,
statute or ordinance levying any assessment or any tax upon rents or the
income from real estate or rental property (other than federal or state
income or estate taxes), Lessee shall reimburse Lessor for Lessee's
proportionate share of said expenses at the same time as rental payments.

          21.  LATE PAYMENTS.  Any payment, required to be made pursuant to
this Lease, not made on the date the same is due shall bear interest at a
rate equal to three percent (3%) above the prime rate of interest charged
from time to time by Seafirst National Bank, or its successor.  In no case,
however, shall payment be considered late until after the 10th day.

          22.  RISK.  All personal property of any kind or description
whatsoever in the demised Premises shall be at Lessee's sole risk.  Lessor
shall not be liable for any damage done to or loss of such personal property
or damage or loss suffered by the business or occupation of the Lessee
arising from any acts or neglect of co-tenants or other occupants of the
building, or of Lessor or the employees of Lessor, or of any other persons,
or from bursting, overflowing or leaking of water, sewer or steam pipes, or
from the heating or plumbing or sprinklering fixtures, or from electric
wires, or from gas, or odors, or caused in any other manner whatsoever except
in the case of negligence on the part of Lessor, or Lessor's agents,
employees or servants.  Lessee shall keep in force throughout the term of
this lease such casualty, general liability and business interruption
insurance as a prudent tenant occupying and using the Premises would keep in

          23.  INDEMNIFICATION.  Lessee and Lessor will each defend,
indemnify and hold harmless the other from any claim, liability or suit
including attorney's fees on behalf of any person, persons, corporations
and/or firm for any injuries or damages occurring in or about the said
Premises or on or about the sidewalk, stairs, or thoroughfares adjacent
thereto where said


damages or injury was caused or partially caused by the ordinary or gross
negligence or intentional act of it and/or its agents, employees or servants.

          24.  WAIVER OF SUBROGATION.  Lessee and Lessor do hereby release
and relieve the other, and waive their entire claim of recovery for loss,
damage, injury, and all liability of every kind and nature which may arise
out of, or be incident to, fire and extended coverage perils, in, on or about
the Premises herein described, whether due to negligence of either of said
parties, their agents, or employees, or otherwise.

          25.  SUBORDINATION.  This lease and all interest and estate of
Lessee hereunder is subject to and is hereby subordinated to all present and
future mortgages and deeds of trust affecting the Premises or the property of
which said Premises are a part.  Lessee agrees to execute at no expense to
the Lessor, any instrument which may be deemed necessary or desirable by the
Lessor to further effect the subordination of this lease to any such mortgage
or deed of trust.  In the event of a sale or assignment of Lessor's interest
in the Premises, or in the event of any proceedings brought for the
foreclosure of, or in the event of exercise of the power of sale under any
mortgage or deed of trust made by Lessor covering the Premises, Lessee shall
attorn to the purchaser and recognize such purchaser as Lessor.  Said sale,
assignment or foreclosure shall in no way affect the validity of this Lease
and/or any amendments made thereto.  In such case, this Lease shall remain in
full force and effect.  Lessee agrees to execute, at no expense to Lessor,
any estoppel certificate deemed necessary or desirable by Lessor that is true
and accurate in all respects to further effect the provisions of this

          26.  CASUALTY.  In the event the leased Premises or the said
building is destroyed or injured by fire, earthquake or other casualty to the
extent that they are untenantable in whole or in part, then Lessor may, at
Lessor's option, proceed with reasonable diligence to rebuild and restore the
said Premises or such part thereof as may be injured as aforesaid, provided
that within sixty (60) days after such destruction or injury Lessor will
notify Lessee of Lessor's intention to do so, and during the period of such
rebuilding and restoration the rent shall be abated on the portion of the
Premises that is unfit for occupancy.  If necessary, Lessor will provide
access to any needed alternative space for Lessee at the fair market rate not
to exceed Lessee's rental rate hereunder.

          If the Premises are destroyed or damages and the damage or
destruction renders more than 40% of the Premises untenantable for 120 days
or more, either party may elect to terminate the Lease as of the date of the
damage or destruction by giving the other party written notice within 30 days
after the date of the damage provided, however, if Lessor can provide
comparable alternative space with comparable tenant improvements acceptable
to Lessee, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, as a substitute
for the damaged or destroyed premises, then Lessee shall not have the right
to terminate the Lease.  Lessee shall pay for the temporary space at the
market rate or at Lessee's existing rate whichever is lower and Lessor agrees
to pay the costs of relocation and required tenant improvements acceptable to
Lessee, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld.  In the event of
termination, all rights and


obligations of the parties shall cease as of the date of termination, and
Lessee shall be entitled to reimbursement of any prepaid rent.  If neither
party elects to terminate, Lessor shall promptly and diligently proceed to
restore the Premises to substantially the same form as prior to the damage or
destruction.  Work shall be commenced as soon as possible and shall proceed
without interruption except for work stoppages on account of labor disputes
and matters outside of Lessor's control.

          27.  INSOLVENCY.  If Lessee becomes insolvent, or makes an
assignment for the benefit of creditors, or a receiver is appointed for the
business or property of Lessee, or a petition is filed in a court of
competent jurisdiction to have Lessee adjudged bankrupt and such action is
not cured within sixty (60) days, then Lessor may at Lessor's option
terminate this lease. Said termination shall reserve unto Lessor all of the
rights and remedies available under Paragraph 28 ("Default") hereof, and
Lessor may accept rents from such assignee or receiver without waiving or
forfeiting said right of termination.  As an alternative to exercising his
right to terminate this lease, Lessor may require Lessee to provide adequate
assurances, including the posting of a cash bond, of Lessee's ability to
perform its obligations under this lease.

          28.  LESSEE'S DEFAULT.  If this Lease is terminated in accordance
with any of the terms herein (with the exception of Paragraph 27), or if
Lessee vacates or abandons the Premises or if Lessee shall fail at any time
to keep or perform any of the covenants or conditions of this lease for
thirty (30) days after written notice delivered to Lessee for such failure,
i.e., specifically the covenant for the payment of monthly rent, then, and in
any of such events Lessor may with or without notice or demand, at Lessor's
option, and without being deemed guilty of trespass and/or without
prejudicing any remedy or remedies which might otherwise be used by Lessor
for arrearanges or preceding breach of covenant or condition of this lease,
enter into and repossess said Premises and expel the Lessee and all those
claiming under Lessee.  In such event Lessor may eject and remove from said
Premises all goods and effects (forcibly if necessary). This lease is not
otherwise terminated may immediately be declared by Lessor as terminated. The
termination of this lease pursuant to this Article shall not relieve Lessee
of its obligations to make the payments required herein . In the event this
lease is terminated pursuant to this Article, or if Lessor enters the
Premises without terminating this lease and Lessor relets all or a portion of
the Premises, Lessee shall be liable to Lessor for all the costs of
reletting, including necessary renovation and alteration of the leased
Premises.  Lessee shall remain liable for all unpaid rental which has been
earned plus late payment charges pursuant to Paragraph 21 and for the
remainder of the term of this lease for any deficiency between the net
amounts received following reletting and the gross amounts due from Lessee,
or if Lessor elects, Lessee shall be immediately liable for all rent and
additional rent (Paragraph 19) that would be owing to the end of the term,
less any rental loss Lessee proves could be reasonably avoided, which amount
shall be discounted by the discount rate of the Federal Reserve Bank,
situated nearest to the Premises, plus one percent (1%). Lessor shall use its
best efforts to re-lease the Premises and otherwise mitigate the damages
suffered by Lessor from any breach by Lessee.


          29.  LESSOR'S DEFAULT.  Notwithstanding any other term or provision
of this Lease, if Lessor fails to comply with any term or provision of this
Lease for more than thirty (30) days after written notice from Lessee stating
the nature of the default, Lessee may direct all sums due Lessor under this
Lease to an escrow account until Lessor has cured the default to Lessee's
reasonable satisfaction; provided, however, if the default cannot reasonably
be cured within such 30-day period, Lessor shall not be in default of this
Lease if Lessor commences to cure the default within the 30-day period and
diligently and in good faith continues to cure the default and if the cure is
not completed with 90 days Lessee may terminate this Lease and all amounts in
the escrow account shall be returned to Lessee.

          30.  RIGHT OF FIRST REFUSAL.  During the initial lease term and any
renewal terms thereof, Lessor will provide Lessee with a right of first
refusal on all space which becomes available within the building.  This right
is subordinate to existing rights.  If Lessor has an interested party in such
space, Lessor will notify Lessee accordingly and Lessee shall have fifteen
(15) working days from receipt of said notice in which to respond either way.
 Rent for such space shall be at the same rate and on the same terms as a
bona fide written offer received by Lessor which shall be no greater than the
fair market value for comparable office space within the Denny Regrade area.

          31.  RENEWAL.  Lessee shall have the right to renew this lease
under the same terms as contained herein, except rent, for two (2), five year
periods, provided Lessee is not in default under the terms and conditions of
this Lease. Rent for the renewal terms shall be at 95% of fair market value
for comparable office space within the Denny Regrade area.  Lessee must
provide Lessor written notice of its election to renew at least six (6)
months prior to the expiration of the then current lease term.

          32.  SPACE POCKET.  Lessor extends to Lessee the right to designate
a portion of the Premises (which portion shall be mutually acceptable) as
space pockets.  Such acceptance shall not be unreasonably withheld.  The
space pocket shall not exceed 20,624 square feet.  These space pockets may be
located at various locations throughout the Premises.  Space pockets will be
rent free and not part of the leased Premises for the purposes of Section 19,
until the space is actually used for active conduct of Lessee's business,
which may be in whole or in part.  If the space pockets are actually used,
Lessee shall pay rent on only the portion used at the same rent that Lessee
is paying for the other space under this Lease.  The initial area space
pocketed shall be incorporated into rentable space on April 1, 1998 or upon
actual use of said space if sooner.  Lessee's use of space pockets as dead
storage shall not cause them to accrue rent.

          33.  RIGHT TO EARLY CANCELLATION.  At any time after October 1,
1997 Lessee may cancel their Lease obligation for the 18th floor Premises
only, by providing Lessor with sixty (60) days prior written notice.


          If Lessee elects to cancel this right, the tenant improvement
allowance described below will become applicable to the 18th floor premises
as well.

          34.  TENANT IMPROVEMENT ALLOWANCE.  Lessor shall provide a tenant
improvement allowance of $10.00 per square foot of space leased to modify and
upgrade the 5th, 6th and 18th floors of the Premises.  The 18th floor
allowance is more specifically detailed in the preceding Paragraph 33.  RIGHT
OF EARLY TERMINATION.  In the event Lessee does not use the entire tenant
improvement allowance to modify the Premises, Lessee may use the remaining
allowance to pay for other costs involved with occupying the Premises,
including rent.  Lessee will provide Lessor with supporting documentation for
such allowances.  Lessee shall have the right to select and contract directly
with a general contractor for all tenant improvement work.  Lessor shall have
the right to accept such general contractor.  Such acceptance shall not be
unreasonably withheld.  In such case Lessee shall pay for all tenant
improvements and shall have the right to offset its rent commencing at
anytime after November 1, 1997, for repayment of its actual costs. Lessee
shall be entitled to a monthly interest rate of two percent (2%) over
Seafirst National Bank's quoted Prime Rate until reimbursed in full for the
costs of improvements by means of the offset.  In the alternative, Lessor
shall have the right to pay for the tenant improvements either upon
completion or at any time, provided Lessor reimburses Lessee for any balance
owing Lessee for the costs of improvements incurred, plus accrued interest,
if any.

          35.  BUILDING SALE.  Lessor shall provide Lessee with prior notice
if Lessor intends to sell the building or formally place the building on the
market for sale.  At that time Lessor shall provide Lessee information
necessary to review a purchase of the building.

          36.  PARKING.  Lessor agrees to provide Lessee with parking stalls.
 The cost of such parking shall remain fixed at $150.00 per stall, per month
during the first lease year, then be subject to market increases.

          37.  ADA COMPLIANCE/FIRE SAFETY.  Lessor warrants that all common
areas and fire escape routes are in compliance with the Americans with
Disabilities Act (ADA) and other governmental acts and regulations, and any
improvements to the common areas and fire escape routes necessitated by the
ADA or other governmental acts and regulations shall be at the sole cost and
expense of Lessor.

          38.  REAL ESTATE LEASING FEE.  Lessor shall owe Colliers Macaulay
Nicolls a real estate leasing fee of $172,474.00.  It is agreed the fee shall
be paid as follows: Lessee shall pay directly to Colliers $73,758.00 upon
full execution of this Lease and offset it against the lease consideration
due and referenced in Paragraph 4.  CONSIDERATION. Lessee shall pay the
remaining commission, $98,716.00, directly to Colliers upon commencement of
the lease term referenced in Paragraph 2.  TERM.  The amount so paid shall be
offset by Lessee as a rent credit against the rents becoming due to Lessor
other than rents for the months for which credit is given under Paragraph 4. 
CONSIDERATION.  Lessee shall continue offsetting the rent until the entire
leasing fee is paid in full.


          Lessor shall be financially responsible for additional real estate
leasing fees equivalent to $3.50 per square foot if Lessee expands Lessee's
Premises beyond the square footage in Paragraph 1. DESCRIPTION.  Such fees
shall be owed Colliers upon Lessee providing notice to Lessor of their intent
to lease said expansion space.

          39.  BINDING EFFECT.  The parties hereto further agree with each
other that each of the provisions of this lease shall extend to and shall, as
the case may require, bind and inure to the benefit, not only of Lessor and
Lessee, but also of their respective heirs, legal representatives, successors
and assigns, subject, however, to the provisions of Paragraph 18. 
ASSIGNMENT, of this lease.

          It is also understood and agreed that the terms "Lessor" and
"Lessee" and verbs and pronouns in the singular number are uniformly used
throughout this lease regardless of gender, number or fact of incorporation
of the parties hereto. The typewritten riders or supplemental provisions, if
any, attached or added hereto are made a part of this lease by reference.  It
is further mutually agreed that no waiver by Lessor or Lessee of a breach by
Lessor or Lessee of any covenant or condition of this lease shall be
construed to be a waiver of any subsequent breach of the same or any other
covenant or condition.

          40.  HOLDING OVER.  If Lessee requires possession of the Premises
after expiration of the term of this lease, Lessee shall so notify Lessor
within sixty (60) days of the Lease expiration and Lessor shall then be
deemed to be a month-to-month tenant upon the same terms and conditions as
contained herein, except rent which shall be revised to reflect the then
current market rate.  During month-to-month tenancy, Lessee acknowledges
Lessor will be attempting to relet the Premises.  Lessee agrees to cooperate
with Lessor and Lessee further acknowledges Lessor's statutory right to
terminate the lease with proper notice. In the event Lessee disagrees with
the market rate established by Lessor, market rate shall be established as

          Within sixty (60) days after notice of holding over, the parties
shall mutually agree on an appraiser who shall determine the fair market
value for the Premises.  If the parties are unable to agree on an appraiser,
then each party shall select an appraiser.  The two appraisers shall then
select a third appraiser who shall determine the fair market value for the
Premises as of the commencement of the holding over term.

          All appraisers selected shall be M.A.I. appraisers with commercial
property experience in King County.

          41.  ANTENNAS.  Lessor shall provide a mutually agreed upon
location acceptable to Lessee for Lessee's antennas, dishes and other
communication equipment required by Lessee free of rent.  Lessee will bear
all expenses regarding installation of said equipment.  Such approval shall
not be unreasonably withheld.


          Location depends on which technically works best, available space
and located so as to not interfere with other antennas or equipment.

          42.  GENERATOR.  Lessor grants Lessee the right to install and
maintain at Lessee's expense a backup generator sufficient to provide Lessee
the necessary electricity during such times when the electrical service
provided by Lessor is disrupted.  Said generator shall be installed at a
location mutually acceptable to both Lessee and Lessor and shall be connected
to the existing power feed, if any, installed by R.W. Beck which may be
currently located in the loading dock area of the building.  Lessor shall not
unreasonably withhold consent as to the chosen location of the generator. 
Lessee shall maintain, at Lessee's sole cost and expense, a fence around such
emergency generator.  Lessee will not operate generator during standard
business hours, unless due to an emergency power outage.

          43.  ATTORNEY'S FEES.  If any legal action is commenced to enforce
any provision of this lease, the prevailing party shall be entitled to an
award of reasonable attorney's fees and disbursements.  The phrase
"prevailing Party" shall include a party who receives substantially the
relief desired, whether by dismissal, summary judgment, judgment or otherwise.

          44.  NO REPRESENTATIONS.  The Lessor has made no representations or
promises except as contained herein or in some future writings signed by

          45.  QUIET ENJOYMENT.  So long as Lessee pays the rent and performs
the covenants contained in this lease, Lessee shall hold and enjoy the
Premises peaceably and quietly, subject to the provisions of this lease.

          46.  RECORDATION.  Lessee shall not record this lease without the
prior written consent of Lessor.  However, at the request of Lessor, both
parties shall execute a memorandum or "short form" of this lease for the
purpose of recordation in a form customarily used for such purpose.  Said
memorandum or short form of this lease shall describe the parties, the
Premises and the lease term, and shall incorporate this lease by reference.

          47.  MUTUAL PREPARATION OF LEASE.  It is acknowledged and agreed
that this lease was prepared mutually by both parties. In the event of
ambiguity, it is agreed by both parties that it shall not be construed
against either party as the drafter of this lease.

          48.  GOVERNING LAW.  This lease shall be governed by, construed and
enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Washington.


          IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereof have executed this lease the
day and year first above written.

Martin Selig                       Its: V.P. Finance and Operations

                            EXHIBIT B


The intent is to include Lessee's proportionate share of all Base Year Costs
in Lessee's Annual Base Rental Rate.  It is further the intent to limit
adjustments to Lessee's Base Year Costs to actual increases in cost.  The
Operating Services are adjusted to the greater of actual average occupancy or
95% occupancy for the base year to fairly establish the Base Year Costs at an
equitable standard for comparison purposes.  Comparison Years are similarly
adjusted for purposes of fairness and equality.  To prevent any confusion
regarding computation of Base Year Costs, Comparison Year Costs and the
adjustment of those costs to 95% occupancy, if necessary, we have set forth
the following example.  It is important to note that if adjustment to 95%
occupancy is necessary, not all Operating Services are adjusted.

Expenses requiring adjustment are those which are 100% dependent upon the
change in footage and adjust with the change in occupied footage.  This
category includes electricity, water/sewer, superintendent, disposal
management, janitorial supplies, window washing, repair and maintenance, HVAC
maintenance, and janitorial labor.

Other expenses do not require adjustment nor are they dependent upon occupied
footage change.  These categories are the same whether the building is empty
or full.  They are, insurance, security, elevator, landscaping and telephone.

Real Estate Taxes are dependent upon independent assessment. Real Estate
Taxes are not adjusted to 95%, but are established for each respective year
based on the actual tax paid whether for the respective Base Year or each
subsequent Comparison Year (s).

Please note the expenses noted below which are and are not adjusted and the
adjustment to each expense to achieve 95% occupancy, if necessary.  The
method of adjusting expenses depicted in the example will be followed when
adjusting actual Operating Service Expenses for both the Base Year and
Comparison Year(s).
