 Branch Acquisition:
 On June 26, 1993, the Savings Bank finalized the purchase of the savings deposits and branch operations of another Thrift located at 6061 Dempster Street, Morton Grove, Ill. The transaction totaled $11.6 million in deposits with a total premium paid of 2.0 percent or $233,000.

The acquired branch is expected to be relocated in November 1993.
 Changes in Accounting Principles:
 The Holding Company adopted changes in accounting principles for income taxes and post-retirement benefits in the fourth quarter of 1992 retroactive to Jan. 1, 1992. The cumulative effect for periods prior to Jan. 1, 1992, was to reduce income tax expense by $936,000 and create an accrual for post-retirement benefits of $455,000. The amounts applicable to 1992 and 1993 are incorporated in operations. The quarterly and six-month consolidated statements of earnings for 1992 were restated to account for the opening and current year's adjustments. There were no comparable adjustments in 1993. Fully diluted earnings per share for the second quarter and the six months ending June 30, 1992, before the cumulative effect in changes in accounting principles, were $.51 and $.93 respectively.

The decrease in interest income is the direct result of lower rates on originations and refinancing of existing loans.

 Non-interest expense amounted to $2.3 million for the three months ending June 30, 1993, an increase of $23,000 or 1.03 percent. Primary increases in non-interest expense are related to salary and employee benefits of $98,000, partially offset by a reduction in Federal Deposit Insurance Premiums of $60,000.
 Federal and state income taxes amounted to $1.0 million, an increase of $185,000 or 22.21 percent as compared to 1992 of $832,000.
 Comments on Statement of Condition:
 During the six month period ending June 30, 1993, loans receivable net increased $26.5 million or 6.06 percent to $430.5 million from $404.0 million at Dec. 31, 1992. Prepaid expenses and other assets increased $978,000 or 15.79 percent to $7.2 million from $6.2 million for the same period. The increase in prepaid expenses and other assets are represented by such items as insurance premiums, deferred compensation and pension premiums and prepaid expenses paid during the first quarter and amortized throughout the year.
