          Betty, entered into a "Joint and Mutual Release".  Among other              
          things, that document recites:  "Bradish holds a forty percent              
          (40%) interest in the joint venture in trust for the children of            
          Larry and Betty Parker".  Among amendments made to the joint                
          venture agreement, (1) Thoner was given exclusive management                
          control over most aspects of the joint venture, (2) an additional           
          joint venture partner, Donald G. Murray, Jr. (Murray), was                  
          admitted to the joint venture, with an interest in profits and              
          losses of 10 percent, and (3) Bradish's interest was reduced to             
          40 percent.                                                                 
               By the end of 1980, disagreements had arisen between Murray,           
          who was on-site manager for the joint venture, and Parker.                  
          Thoner and Murray determined to buy out Bradish.  Murray                    
          undertook negotiations with Parker concerning that buyout.                  
          Bradish and Parker also began negotiating concerning the division           
          of the proceeds to be received by Bradish.  Among other things,             
          Bradish and Parker disagreed concerning the consequence of the              
          previous reduction in Bradish's interest in the joint venture               
          from 50 percent to 40 percent.  Bradish argued that he should               
          receive a share of the proceeds to be received equal to what he             
          would have received had the Bradish interest not been reduced               
          from 50 percent to 40 percent.  To end their disagreements,                 
          Bradish and Parker agreed to engage an arbitrator.  An agreement            
          to arbitrate (the arbitration agreement) was executed on                    
          January 4, 1981.  The arbitration agreement states that Bradish
