ALLTEL CORP: Files 10-Q Quarterly Report
----------------------------------------
Alltel Corporation filed its 10-Q quarterly report with the
SEC for the period ended March 31, 1998.

The Company's total capital structure was $4.2 billion at
March 31, 1998, compared to a capital structure of $4.1
billion at December 31, 1997.  The Company states that it
has adequate internal and external resources available to
finance its ongoing operating requirements, including
capital expenditures, business development and the payment
of dividends.

Revenues and sales increased $62.7 million or 8 percent and
$123.8 million or 4 percent for the three and twelve-month
periods ended March 31, 1998, respectively.

Net income increased $21.8 million or 21 percent and $220.4
million or 71 percent for the three and twelve-month
periods ended March 31, 1998,respectively.  


BRADLEES: Reports 10% Increase in Same Store Sales
--------------------------------------------------
Bradlees announced that its "smaller" first quarter net
loss of $24.7 million, compared to its $32 million loss for
the same period last year was the result of a 10 percent
increase in comparable store sales and continued expense
controls.  Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation
and amortization (EBITDA) was a loss of $10.3 million, a
36.4 percent improvement over the EBITDA loss of $16.2
million in the first quarter of last year.  The net loss
for the first quarter was $24.7 million, down from $32.0
million for the same period last year, with a net loss per
share of $2.18, down from a $2.81 loss per share in 1997.
There were strong sales in the first quarter in both
hardlines and softlines.


BRUNO'S: Key Employee Severance Plan
------------------------------------
PWS Holding Corporation, Bruno's Inc., et al., debtors,
seek court approval of a key employee severance plan.  The
plan is designed to reward non-store level management
employees of Bruno's for the attainment of corporate EBITDA
goals. The objective of the plan is to dissipate fears of  
termination without financial security to cover any period
of unemployment.

The debtors anticipate that coverage under the plan will
extend to 16 senior vice presidents and vice presidents, 17
directors and 77 other salaried, non-contract employees.  
The aggregate amount of severance payments if all employees
were terminated would be approximately $3,683,000.  The
amount does not include the cost of providing continued
insurance coverage.


CHERRY COMMUNICATIONS: Wins 30-Day Exclusivity Extension
--------------------------------------------------------
Cherry Communications Inc. won a 30-day extension of its
exclusive periods to file a reorganization plan and
solicit plan acceptances. At a May 21 hearing before the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Chicago, there were no objections
to Cherry's request to extend the exclusive filing and
solicitation periods to June 22 and Aug. 21, respectively.
The telecommunications wholesaler anticipates filing a plan
based on the company's merger with World Access Inc., and
an accompanying disclosure statement, during the first week
in June.  The company is hoping for a mid-July disclosure
statement hearing and a mid-August confirmation hearing.
(Federal Filings Inc. 26-May-98)


CONFEDERATION LIFE: Liquidator's Report
---------------------------------------
A notice was published in The Wall Street Journal on May
26, 1998 that KPMG Inc., the Liquidator of Confederation
Life Insurance Company will bring a motion before the
Ontario Court for an order approving and authorizing the
liquidator's entry into and participation in a proposed
plan of compromise or arrangement under the Companies'
Creditors Arrangement Act.  The following representative
counsel were appointed:

James H. Grout of Thornton Grout Finnigan in Toronto, to
represent policyholders of Confed holding policies issued
other than by Confed's branches in the US and the UK and

Nancy J. Spies of Stockwood Spies in Toronto, to represent
the interests of unsecured creditors and other claimants of
Confed, wherever located, who are unsecured and whose
claims rank subsequent to the claims of Canadian
Policyholders and U.S. Policyholders.

Addresses are given for a full copy of the Liquidator's
Report, and for filing an appearance.


D & L VENTURE: Seeks to Extend Exclusivity
------------------------------------------
D & L Venture Corp., et al., debtors, seeks an extension of
120 days to and including October 1, 1998 of the debtors'
exclusive period for filing a plan of reorganization and  
an extension of 120 days to and including November 30, 1998
of the exclusive period for soliciting acceptance of a plan
filed by October 1, 1998.

The debtors state that they need the extension to engage in
meaningful plan negotiations with creditors and to solicit
and negotiate for competitive exit financing for the
ultimate benefit of creditors.  The debtors state that they
have utilized the initial stage of the case to stabilize
operations, working towards restoring the confidence of
customers, suppliers and employees.   The debtors have
consolidated their operations from over 80 stores to 55
stores, reduced operating costs and are seeking approval of
an employee retention plan.


GENERAL WIRELESS: Seeks 60-Day Exclusivity Extension
----------------------------------------------------
General Wireless Inc., its GWI PCS Inc. affiliate, and
their subsidiaries said that while they are "negotiating
an overall transaction with numerous investors and
investment bankers which is necessary for the success of
their proposed Plan," this process "takes a significant
amount of time and coordinated effort among all parties."  
The companies asserted that "the prospects of a viable Plan
have increased dramatically" based on (a) the recent court
ruling avoiding as a fraudulent conveyance $954 million in
debt owed to the Federal Communications Commission, and (b)
progress made to date in discussions with creditors.
(Federal Filings Inc. 26-May-98)


GREATE BAY HOTEL: Tax Counsel Approved
--------------------------------------
The court entered an order on the application of Greate Bay
Hotel and Casino, Inc., debtor, authorizing the employment
of Rosenblum Wolf & Lloyd, PA as special real property tax
counsel nunc pro tunc to January 5, 1998.


GRIFFIN: Resolution of the Eli Witt Contingency
-----------------------------------------------
Griffin Land & Nurseries, Inc. announced today that the
bankruptcy court has approved a motion whereby Griffin
released all of its remaining claims against the Eli Witt
Company in exchange for the creditors of Eli Witt releasing  
Griffin from any liability in connection with the Chapter
11 filing by Eli Witt  in 1996.  The claims on Eli Witt
that Griffin released had been fully reserved  on Griffin's
balance sheet in previous years, therefore there
is no effect on  Griffin's financial statements as a result
of the current bankruptcy court ruling.

Griffin operates landscape nursery and real estate
businesses and has 25% equity investments in Centaur
Communications, Ltd. and Linguaphone Group plc.   
Griffin's common stock is traded under the symbol "GRIF" on
the Nasdaq National Market.


HOMESTAKE MINING: Offers to Acquire Prime Resources
---------------------------------------------------
Homestake Mining Company announced that it has proposed to
the Board of Directors of Prime Resources Group Inc. the
acquisition by Homestake of the 49.4% of Prime held by the
public and not already owned by Homestake. Under the terms
of the offer, Prime shareholders would receive 0.675
Homestake common shares -- or 0.675 Homestake exchangeable
shares which will be issued by Homestake Canada Inc. (HCI)
-- for each Prime share held by them. The offer represents
a 12.5% premium over Prime's closing price on May 22.

Homestake has proposed that the transaction would be
completed as a plan of arrangement under the Company Act
(British Columbia) and would be tax deferred to most
Canadian shareholders who elect to receive the Homestake  
exchangeable shares. In addition, the Homestake
exchangeable shares will not be foreign property for
purposes of Canadian tax law.

Homestake anticipates that Prime will soon convene a
meeting of its Board of Directors to consider Homestake's
offer. It is anticipated that Prime will establish a
committee of independent directors, assisted by financial
and legal advisors, to properly review this acquisition
proposal.

The offer is subject to customary conditions, including the
approval of British Columbia Supreme Court and the Prime
Board of Directors and the approval by the required
percentage of Prime's minority shareholders present  
and voting at a special shareholder meeting.


HYUNDAI: Axes 8000 Jobs
-----------------------
The Scotland Evening News reported on  05/25/98 that
Hyundai is sacking more than 8000 of a 45,000-strong  
workforce in its car-making operations.  The move comes as  
South Korean stocks tumbled to close at an 11-year low
today amid continuing fears about the nation's economy.

The job losses are part of what Hyundai describes as an
ambitious corporate restructuring drive.  Hyundai has said
it plans to dismiss 8189 - 18 per cent - of its 45,000  
workforce in the car making side of its business, in line
with free-falling domestic car sales.   Union leaders
opposed to the mass sackings said workers may stage an all-
out strike unless the plan is scrapped.   "We will boycott
all talks with the company unless the management withdraws  
its layoff plan," said a union spokesman.

Hyundai Motor said domestic vehicle sales during the first
four months of this year plunged nearly 50 per cent to
98,415 from 194,013 a year earlier.  The company said last
month it had lowered its vehicle production target for
this year to 900,000 cars from an earlier target of 1.5
million, but would almost certainly have to lower it
further.  Hyundai sold 1.25m vehicles in 1997, including
exports of 645,000.   Earlier in April the company said it
needed to cut its payroll by about 30 per cent to remain
competitive.


KIWI AIRLINES: Letter of Intent Signed with Coventry
----------------------------------------------------
Diversified holding company Coventry Industries Corp. said
yesterday from its Boca Raton, Fla., headquarters that it
would buy Kiwi International Holdings Inc., owner of Kiwi
International Airlines, for an undisclosed amount  
of stock.

Kiwi and Diversified said a letter of intent on the deal
was signed Friday by Dr. Charles Edwards, the Baltimore
surgeon who bought Kiwi for $16.5 million  last July, when
the Newark, N.J.-based airline was in bankruptcy
proceedings.

But Kiwi, which has about 650 employees, also is
negotiating a sale with Aviation Industries Corp. of
Roseland, N.J.; investment group Kiwi Holdings  
Inc., which is not related to Kiwi International; and two
undisclosed private suitors, a Kiwi spokesman said.


LEVITZ FURNITURE: Committee Seeks to Employ Consultant
------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of Levitz
Furniture Incorporated and its 11 affiliated debtors, is
seeking authority to retain and employ Bottom Line Focus
Consulting, ("BLF") a management consultant. BLF will be
compensated at the rate of $1,200 per day, or if less than
four hours of services in a day, BLF will be compensated at
the rate of $150 per hour.

The Committee is seeking to retain BLF for an initial
period of 45 days, subject to extension.  The Committee
believes that retaining BLF for a limited engagement will
enable the Committee to better assess the debtors' short
term and long term business plans.  Specifically, BLF will
review and advise the Committee with respect to the
debtors' implementation of their business plan, including,
without limitation, the debtors' advertising, marketing and
merchandising strategies and store operations.
     

MARINER'S INN: Restaurant Site May Serve as Local Park
------------------------------------------------------
After years of legal battles to block a proposed new and
expanded waterfront restaurant on Northport harbor, one of
which is still pending, the village is considering buying
the property and possibly keeping it as open space for
public use.

Much will depend on the outcome of a lawsuit that neighbors
filed against the zoning board of appeals in February,
after it gave approval for the inn to reopen as a
restaurant. If neighbors win, the Oyster Bay restaurateur
who is in contract to purchase the Mariner's Inn from
owners Ronald and Mary Ellen Karl of Northport might be
more amenable to negotiating with the village.

Ken Savin, a court-appointed bankruptcy attorney handling
the sale of Mariner's Inn to Paavo Raudkivi, an Oyster Bay
restaurateur, said the Karls are already in contract to
sell the 2-acre parcel for $1.3 million. Thomas Hession,
attorney for Raudkivi, said they are willing to listen to  
the village's plan to turn Mariner's Inn into a park. But,
more importantly, they are waiting for the outcome of the
lawsuit. Savin said that the restaurant already had
operated for the last 50 years until a few years ago when
it went out of business. (Newsday-05/24/98)


MEGO MORTGAGE: Operating With Negative Cash Flow
------------------------------------------------
The Atlanta-based specialty mortgage company restated its
second quarter results originally released Feb. 28. On May
20, the company noted it was operating with a negative cash
flow; that it has been named in a class-action lawsuit
alleging securities violations; and that it needs new
capital to avoid bankruptcy. (Atlanta Constitution -
05/23/98)


MIDCOM COMMUNICATIONS: Court Approves Disclosure Statement
----------------------------------------------------------
The court approved on May 20 the disclosure statement for
the reorganization plan proposed by the official committee
of Midcom Communications Inc.'s creditors, but postponed
the confirmation hearing until July 10. The U.S. Bankruptcy
Court in Detroit rescheduled the confirmation hearing
because the long distance provider's bondholders did not
receive copies of the plan and were unable to vote.  Since
the agent failed to serve them with the plan, the voting
period for bondholders has been extended to June 30.
(Federal Filings Inc. 26-May-98)


MOLTEN METAL: Extension of Exclusivity
--------------------------------------
Molten Metal Technology, Inc. and its affiliated companies
, with the assent of the Official Committee of Unsecured
Creditors, seek an extension to September 4, 1998 of the
company's exclusive period for filing a plan of
reorganization, and an extension to November 3, 1998 of the
exclusive period for soliciting acceptance of a plan filed
by September 4, 1998.

The company expects to complete the long-term business plan
in late July, and to share it with the Committee
immediately upon completion.  The business plan will serve
as a focal point for discussion of the future of the
enterprise.


PARAGON TRADE: Court OKs Employ of DWT - Not Nunc pro Tunc
----------------------------------------------------------
The court entered an order in the case of Paragon trade
Brands, Inc. approving the employment of special counsel
Davis Wright & Tremain to handle certain employment and
employee benefit matters.  The court did not approve the
employment nunc pro tunc to January 6, 1998, but rather
from May 5, 1998 - the date of the application.


PARAGON TRADE: Order Grants Procter & Gamble Relief
---------------------------------------------------
On May 18, 1998, the court entered an order modifying the
Automatic Stay to the extent necessary to:

(i) Allow Procter & Gamble (P& G) to file a motion to enter
a money judgment ($178,429,536) and damage calculation in
respect of P& G's claims in the Delaware action and

(ii) Allow P& G to file a motion to enter a permanent
injunction in respect of P& G's claims in the Delaware
action


QUADRAX CORP: Court Approves Special Counsel
--------------------------------------------
In the case of Quadrax Corporation, debtor, the court
entered an order approving the retention of the law firm of
Hale and Dore LLP as special corporate counsel to the
debtor.  


QUINCY'S: Investor Group Buys Quincy's Steakhouses                    
--------------------------------------------------
The owner of Peasant, City Grill and Mick's restaurants
plans to pay $85.7 million for the Quincy's Family
Steakhouse chain.  Buckley Acquisition Corp., an investor
group headed by former Quincy's president Gregory M.
Buckley, will acquire the 125-restaurant unit from  
Spartanburg, S.C.-based Advantica Restaurant Group and move
the division's headquarters to Atlanta.

Quincy's operates eight restaurants in Georgia, but none in
metro Atlanta. Buckley made an unsuccessful previous bid to
buy Quincy's. Then he formed Atlanta Dining Group and paid
$6.8 million to buy the Mick's and Peasant groups
in 1997 from Morton Restaurant Group.

In addition to eight Peasant restaurants and 11 Mick's, the
Peasant group includes City Grill and Dailey's downtown,
Country Place at Colony Square and Winfields at Cobb
Galleria.

The Quincy's deal includes $81.5 million in cash and $4.2
million in capital leases, plus the assumption of other
liabilities.   Advantica said it sold the Quincy's chain,
which closed 71 underperforming stores in the past 18
months, as part of a move to focus on family and  
specialty-chicken restaurants.

The company also sold 557 Hardee's restaurants last month,
leaving it with four restaurant brands: Denny's, El Pollo
Loco, Carrows and Coco's.  Advantica changed its name from
Flagstar Cos. in January after emerging from Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection. The company's stock rose 16 cents
Friday to $10.37 1/2. (Atlanta Constitution 05/23/98)


SAMSUNG MOTORS: Failure in Tie-Up Talks with Ford
-------------------------------------------------
South Korea's infant car maker, Samsung Motors Inc.,  
conceded a setback Monday in on-off negotiations with US
auto giant Ford Motor Co. for tie-ups in production, sales
and financing.

"Negotiations on joint-venture business came to a rupture,"
Samsung Motors' vice chairman Lee Dae-Won told reporters.
But Lee left the door open for strategic alliances with
other foreign firms to participate in the government-
initiated restructuring of South Korea's troubled auto
industry.

"We now think of establishing ties with other foreign firms
including Japanese and European car makers for joint
production or participation in the realignment of the
country's auto industry," he said.

In return for Ford's participation in Samsung's capital
increase, the Korean firm has offered to provide benefits
such as the free use of is sales network.

But Ford's response has been lackluster, with the company
putting priority on protecting its share in South Korea's
ailing Kia Motors Corp., which was placed under court
receivership last month. Ford holds a 16.9 percent
stake in Kia.  Kia officials said Ford was seeking to form
a consortium with Kia's creditors to increase its stake, in
line with its strategy to cope with ongoing mergers and
acquisitions among the world's major players.

Samsung managed to churn out passenger cars from March
after injecting more than four trillion won. But it is
still under pressure from rival firms to give up the money-
gulping auto unit. (Agence France-Presse; 05/25/98)


TRIDEL ENTERPRISES: Announces Financial Results
-----------------------------------------------
Tridel Enterprises Inc. announced its results for the  
three months ended March 31, 1998.  Net loss for the three
months ended March 31, 1998 was $3.3 million as compared to
a net loss of $2.7 million for the same period in 1997.
Total revenues decreased by $70.8 million from $119.0
million for the three months ended March 31, 1997 to $48.2
million for the three months ended March 31, 1998.

As part of the restructuring, the Company's board of
directors will be reconstituted so that a majority of the
directors will be persons independent of management.

The Company's ability to continue operations as a going
concern is dependent on the Company continuing to arrange
the necessary construction financing under current economic
conditions, obtaining the required consents, amendments and
waivers to its current defaults, completing the debt and
equity restructuring with the receipt of all requisite
approvals, and a return to profitable operations.


VENTURE STORES: Seeks Approval of Reclamation Claim Program
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Debtor presents to the Court its Reclamation Report,
pursuant to the Order Approving Omnibus Procedures for the
Resolution of Reclamation Claims, and seeks the Court's
approval of the amounts which it has proposed as Allowed
Reclamation Claims for each qualifying vendor, with certain
exceptions, along with information supplementing its
decisions on disallowed claims:

There are no Reclamation Claims which have been resolved.
The Debtor presents a list of vendors with the Allowed
Amounts of the Vendors' Reclamation Claims, as proposed by
the Debtor, accompanying each vendor's name; such allowed
amounts totaling in the aggregate approximately $5,200,000.
The Debtor also states in its Report that the Claims of
those Claimants who do timely respond in accordance with
the Reclamation Procedures Order will be resolved,
consensually if possible, or through trial as a contested
matter.

The Debtor tells the Court that, in accordance with the
Reclamation Procedures Order, it is seeking approval of the
Debtor's Reclamation Report, and thereby the allowance of
the proposed Allowed Amounts of the Vendors' Reclamation
Claims. (Venture Stores Bankruptcy News 23-May-1998)


WESTMORELAND COAL: Files Quarterly Report
-----------------------------------------
For the quarterly period ended March 31, 1998, Westmoreland
Coal Co. reported to the SEC in its Form 10-Q, $2.062
million in net income on $16.962 of total revenue.


ZENITH: LG Provides Zenith Funds - Sets Reorganization
------------------------------------------------------
South Korea's LG Electronics will provide $60 million in
fresh loans to Zenith Electronics to support the television
maker's restructuring. The move came as Zenith approved a
pre-packaged bankruptcy reorganization making it a  
subsidiary of LG. The company owns 19.1% of Zenith. The New
York Stock Exchange suspended trading in Zenith, which will
cancel common shares and no longer meets NYSE listing
requirements.
