 APRIL IS THE LAST MONTH FOR INVESTORS TO PURCHASE THE OBERWEIS
 EMERGING GROWTH FUND WITHOUT AN INITIAL SALES CHARGE
 CHICAGO, April 3 /PRNewswire/ -- For the first four months of 1992, Hamilton Investments, the distributor of the Oberweis Emerging Growth Fund, has been offering the fund without an initial sales charge. The sales charge, which is four percent for purchases below $50,000, will be re-instituted starting April 30, 1992.
 The sales charge was removed to generate new assets in the fund and the program has been very successful. Assets were almost $20 million at the end of 1991 and have grown to $35 million during the first quarter of 1992, a 75 percent increase. We are confident that assets will continue to increase, even with a sales charge.
 The fund placed in the top ten of all mutual funds for 1991, according to Lipper Analytical Services, with a total return of 87 percent. The net asset value of the fund increased 6.2 percent for the first quarter of 1992, while the S&P lost nearly 3.4 percent.
 This 5-year-old small-cap fund is managed by Jim Oberweis, who has been president and portfolio manager since inception. Oberweis is considered an expert in small-cap stocks and has been quoted in numerous financial publications, including The Wall Street Journal, Barrons', and Investor's Business Daily. Oberweis selects companies which he believes possess rapid revenue and earnings growth and strong relative strength.
 There is a minimum initial investment of $5,000 and $2,000 for Individual Retirement Accounts.
 The fund is recommended for long term investors. To discourage short term investors, the fund will impose a one percent redemption fee for investments made during this special offering period and held for less than one year. This fee will be the lesser of one percent of the NAV at the time of purchase or at the time of redemption.
 For more information, please contact Jim Oberweis or Mary Jane Murphy at 1-800-323-6166. Oberweis is available for interviews. Investors may obtain a prospectus by calling 1-800-323-6166 or by writing to Hamilton Investments, Inc. at 841 N. Lake Street, Aurora, Ill. 60506.
