printability, Printer will provide prompt notification to Publisher, by
telephone, upon discovery of such substandard or defective conditions,
confirming such notification to Publisher in writing within five (5) business

cost as a result thereof, said cost will be charged to and paid by Publisher.
Cores shall remain the property of Publisher and, if not damaged so as to be
unusable, shall be loaded in cars and returned to the respective mills by

damage to such paper and shall file claims on behalf of the Publisher for such
apparent defects or damage.

     8.02  Printer will maintain an accurate record of all paper received, used
and on hand, and shall submit a written monthly inventory to Publisher not later

Magazine or sooner if possible. Once each contract year, at Printer's sole cost,
Printer will effect a physical inventory of paper and submit to Publisher a
report of said inventory. "Contract year" for the purpose of this Agreement
means the twelve (12) month period beginning with the first day of the calendar
month in which the printing of the first monthly requirement of the Magazine

keep the wastage of paper at a minimum.

     8.03  Printer will, at the end of each contract year, pay Publisher for its
average cost of paper consumed in excess of that allowed by Exhibit D; provided,
however, that the value of underconsumption of one kind of paper will be used as
a credit against overconsumption of other kinds of paper. However, Printer shall
have the option to reimburse the Publisher for such excess in kind. If Printer
consumes less paper than allowed by Exhibit D, Publisher shall pay Printer an
amount equal to fifty percent (50%) of the average value of paper underconsumed
during the contract year, and the paper requirements set forth in Exhibit D
shall be amended to reflect fifty percent (50%) of such underconsumption in the
new or revised paper requirements for the next succeeding contract year.
However, Publisher shall have the option to settle such account in kind. Paper
which is damaged, defective or does not conform to the specifications in Exhibit
G shall be excluded from the computation of overconsumption and
underconsumption. The actual basis weight of the paper received and used for
each issue of the Magazine shall be the basis for the calculation of over and
underconsumption. Within ten (10) days of submitting each issue's invoice,
Printer shall submit the calculation of under or over consumption for the issue
of the Magazine to which the invoice applies.

     8.04  Printer shall purchase and store for Publisher ink in the amounts and
kinds consistent with Publisher's requirements hereunder.  Printer shall invoice

mutually agreed upon. Any discrepancies between the preliminary and final
invoices shall be adjusted by the parties within a reasonable time.

ink), set forth in Exhibit C for the period from the Commencement Date until
December 1, 1998 including but not limited to increases in costs resulting from

other working conditions experienced by Printer affecting the cost of performing
the Work or due to increases in the cost of materials (excluding ink),
utilities, fuel, operating supplies, service costs or any other materials or
services utilized by Printer in the performance of the Work. Changes in the cost
of ink shall be passed on as incurred. Rates for ink in the price schedule are

     10.05  If during the period of this Agreement (or any renewal) there shall
be any change to Printer in the price of materials (excluding ink), or labor
increases or decreases (any change in labor conditions), the prices contained in

1999 for production of the February, 2000 issue of the magazine), a competitive
situation should arise from a reliable and qualified source capable of producing
the volume and quality produced by Printer under this Agreement for the
production of the Magazine in whole and if there is a difference in Publisher's
net over-all cost for substantially identical services of more than five percent
(5%) on such total volume and quality described above in this Article 10.07, and
Printer and Publisher cannot agree on a satisfactory settlement, Publisher shall
have the right to terminate this Agreement by written notice, effective not less
than twelve (12) months after Printer is advised of such competitive situation.
In the event of dispute between the parties hereto as to the "cost for
substantially identical services,": such dispute shall be settled by arbitration

accounting firm using generally accepted accounting principles.

     10.09  In the event that Publisher desires to make changes in the
Manufacturing Specifications set forth in Exhibit B or the Production Schedule
set forth by the Publisher, Printer shall use its best efforts and cooperate
with Publisher in putting such changes into effect. In the event that any such

the cost of performing the Work, the prices for the Work set forth in Exhibit C
shall be adjusted to reflect a mutually acceptable increase or decrease.

     10.10  Printer shall make all reasonable efforts to improve the quality and
efficiency of the Work and to keep abreast of new developments in the printing
industry. The parties recognize that new developments in the printing industry
may result in cost savings, and that Printer with the approval of Publisher is

and Exhibit C (Price Schedule) resulting from any new developments shall be
subject to the mutual agreement of the parties.

the grounds that it does not consider such cause beyond its control to be
continuing. Printer shall, nevertheless, not deter, delay or impede Publisher
from such removal of property, but shall pursue its legal remedies after such
removal has taken place.

     12.03  In the event of any delay due to strikes, lockouts or other labor
difficulties, Publisher shall have the right to place the Work elsewhere. If
Printer anticipates any strike, lockout or other labor difficulties which may

Publisher sufficiently in advance so that Publisher can make alternate
arrangements for the production of the Magazine during any such period of
strikes, lockout or other labor difficulties. In such

or failures in furnishing materials occasioned by causes beyond its control and
not due to its fault or negligence, including, without limitation, war, natural

regulations.

     12.06  If any of the above-described causes beyond the control of Printer

         EXHIBIT G - QUAD/GRAPHICS' PAPER AND SHIPPING SPECIFICATIONS

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PRINTABILITY
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Roll-fed paper is to be wound tightly with uniform tension, free of scrap,
slitter dust, slime holes, spots, welts, piling tendencies, edge cracks, or
other defects.

Rolls must be uniform of moisture and caliper across the rolls and from roll to
roll. Offset paper must be suitable for heat set web offset printing with 4 and
5 colors, and drying ovens operating at 325-350 degrees. Gravure paper must be
suitable for printing with 4 and 5 colors using toluene based inks, and steam
dryers operating at 150 degrees.

All mill splices are to be flagged. The maximum allowable number of mill splices
in a 40" diameter roll is three (four splices in a 45" roll and five in a 50"
roll), with an average of no more than one per roll. No mill splices should be
within 2" of each other, the outside of the roll, or the core. Mill splices must
be diagonal and correctly made to run through heat set web offset, or
rotogravure presses. We suggest 3M splice materials. Dispersible type tape must
be used for splices.

WEB BREAKS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We will accept up to 5 web breaks per 100 rolls due to the condition of the
paper. Breaks beyond this limit are the responsibility of the mill together with
the cost of lost presstime.

WRAPPING, ROLL DIAMETER AND WEIGHT
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Roll stock should be properly wrapped to protect against moisture and mechanical
damage, particularly the edges, in normal handling and warehouse storage.

CORES
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All paper must be wound tightly on three inch (inside diameter) cores which are
the same width as the paper. Paper must be well fastened to the core to prevent
slipping. For cores requiring keyways, the keyways are 5/8" wide by 3/4" deep
with a maximum width of 3/4"

SHIPPING AND RECEIVING BY TRUCK AND RAIL
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Paper is received at all Quad/Graphics facilities 24 hours per day, 7 days per
week, and most holidays By Appointment Only,
                        -------------------

Appointments for each plant are to be made 24 hours in advance Monday through
                                           -------------------
Friday, 7:00 am through 5:00 pm. Because our Sussex and Pewaukee, WI facilities
and our Thomaston and The Rock, GA facilities are only 5 miles apart each, truck
drivers will be directed to the correct plant, upon arrival.

Railcars must have a minimum door opening of 8 feet and preferably have a
cushioned underframe. Container and truck/trailers are to have a minimum door
opening of 92".

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Most Important! Quad/Graphics requires all paper mills to send advance
notification of all railcars shipped. Although not required,
  Quad/Graphics preferred mode of delivery is rail. EDI is the preferred method
of notification. If this computer link has not yet been established, please
contact Peggy Kirby at (414) 691-9200.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PLEASE NOTE:  PAPER WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED IF DELIVERED MORE THAN FIVE DAYS BEFORE
THE DUE DATE UNLESS NOTIFIED OTHERWISE.
