ACDC INC: Filed For Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection
ACDC Inc., a Milford-based manufacturer and worldwide
distributor of ventilation dampers, filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection Wednesday, though it hopes to emerge
from its reorganization.

A turnaround specialist working with the 28-employee
company blamed rapid overseas expansion and thin margins
for the move to seek protection from creditors.

"We got involved in the case in January in an attempt to
reorganize the company informally," said Leonard Eppel, the
turnaround specialist. "In April, we called a creditors'
meeting with the unsecured creditors in Ohio."

He said a turnaround committee was formed to develop a
proposal for the settlement of debt over a period of time,
but two of the creditors rejected it and filed lawsuits.

ACDC listed preliminary assets of $3.3 million and
liabilities  of about $6.5 million. The secured lender,
Provident Bank, is owed an estimated $800,000.  
Unsecured creditors are owed about $3.4 million.

ACDC's problems began two years ago, when the domestic
market for dampers softened and it decided to seek business
abroad. It succeeded in finding customers in Korea and
Indonesia - more than it could handle. Sales rose to  
$7.8 million in 1997 from $3.6 million in 1996, and ACDC
began hiring to meet orders.  But it was bidding its
projects on tight margins, and when some orders fell  
through or payments were delayed, ACDC didn't have the
capital to cover the loss. Economic problems in the Far
East exacerbated the problem.

Meanwhile, ACDC's rapid expansion created management
problems.  Mr. Eppel said ACDC intends to emerge from
Chapter 11, and ship products on a cash-on-delivery or
short-return basis. It also is shifting more business
to the domestic market.(Cincinnati Enquirer - 07/30/98)

ALLIANCE ENTERTAINMENT: Concord Wins Exclusivity Extension
Alliance Entertainment Corp.'s Concord Records Inc. unit
won an extension of its exclusive periods to file a
reorganization plan and solicit acceptances to Sept. 30 and
Nov. 30, respectively. In seeking the 60-day extension,
Alliance said it is optimistic that negotiations to sell
the jazz record label will soon be completed, and the
company has received expressions of interest from several
potential buyers. Alliance said Concord has begun preparing
a plan, however, the subsidiary's major creditor
constituencies have not had a full opportunity to negotiate
plan issues due to the potential impact of the parent
company's plan. (The Daily Bankruptcy Review Copyright c

BARRY'S JEWELERS: Seeks to Reject Headquarters Lease

GARDEN CITY CASINO: Files Chapter 11
Owners of the Garden City Casino in San Jose, Calif., filed
chapter 11 on Friday to prevent the landlord from
confiscating millions in unpaid rent, according
to The San Jose Mercury News. The filing followed the
seizure of about $900,000.  Attorneys for the casino asked
Bankruptcy Judge Marilyn Morgan to protect the club by
assuring that $1 million loaned from the owner's
development company not be seized; she agreed. The landlord
filed a suit in May 1997 contending that the club owed more
than $3.6 million in unpaid rent, property taxes and other
expenses. During the past year the parties have been in
negotiations to combine ownership of the club and real
estate, but the landlord ended the discussions and instead
acted on a year-old writ to seize $1.3 million toward the
unpaid rent. The club feared it would go out of business if
it did not prevent further seizures. (ABI 05-Aug-98)

Officer, said, "As a result of the restructuring, we will

growth through an aggressive business strategy. Our
management team is eager to move ahead with its business
plan which seeks to capitalize on our Company's valuable
consumer recognition, excellent store locations and other  
assets to enhance the value of the Company over the long

Grand Union's restructuring plan received overwhelming
approval from the Company's senior noteholders and
preferred stockholders in a solicitation  
completed on June 22, 1998. In connection with the
restructuring, Grand Union has entered into an agreement
with UBS AG, Stamford Branch, and Lehman Commercial Paper

LIBERTY HOUSE: Reconsideration of Special Counsel
The "Incumbent Board" of Liberty House, Inc., composed of
Judd D. Malkin, Neil G. Bluhm, H. Rigel Barber, Peter B.
Foreman, Burton E. Glazov, and Steven E. Plonsker and JMB
Realty Corporation move for reconsideration of the court's
order authorizing the employment and retention of Cleary,
Gottlieb, Steen & Hamilton as special counsel to the
"putative board of directors" of Liberty House, Inc.

JMB and its affiliates are the beneficial owners of all of
the outstanding common and preferred stock of Liberty

The Incumbent Board is the board of directors of Liberty
House duly elected by JMB.  There is a "live and active
controversy" as to whether the Incumbent Board or the
Banks' Board is the true and legitimate board of Liberty

The objection states that the firm's retention was
authorized with a reasonable opportunity for the Movants to
be heard.  The Incumbent Board and JMB request that the
court reconsider and vacate its order authroizing the
retention of Cleary Gottlieb.  The Movants state that the
retention motion, packaged a s a routinge "no Hearing
Require" motion  raised a host of serious disinterestedness
and conflict issues.

PEGASUS GOLD: Objections to Disclosure Statement
The Gros Ventre and Assiniboine Tribes and the Fort Belknap
Community Council object to the Disclosure Statement of
Diamond Hill Mining, Inc., Florida Canyon Mining, Inc.,
Montana Tunnels Mining, Inc. and Pegasus Gold
International, Inc., debtors.

The objections are based on the fact that the Disclosure
Statement does not reflect Pegasus Gold International
Inc.'s liabilities as the corporate successor to Pegasus
Gold Company.

The Disclosure Statement does not disclose the effect of
the reorganization plan on property and creditors of
Pegasus Gold Company.

Further, the objection states that creditors of Pegasus
Gold Comp[any have sufficient stake in the property of the
company to be parties in interest in the Pegasus gold
International Inc.  reorganization with the ability to
object and vote on the reorganization plan.

The United States of America also filed an objection to the
Disclosure Statement on behalf of the EPA, the Bureau of
Land Management and the US Forest Service.

The United States is also concerned that the PGII Plan will
affect the property of PGC.  If the PGII Plan is confirmed,
PGC's rights to operate the proponents' mines and mining
interests and to sell the stock and assets of the
proponents would be stripped from PGC.  Further, valuable
property of PGC needed to conduct administrative functions
and to operate the Diamond Hill and Montana Tunnels Mines
would be transferred under the plan to the applicable

PIONEER OIL & GAS: Plan Confirmed By Court
Pioneer Oil and Gas (OTC Bulletin Board: PIOLQ) announced
today that the Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization
was  approved by the necessary votes of the creditors and
the plan was confirmed by the Court.

Speaking of the confirmation, Don J. Colton, President of
Pioneer stated, "We see a bright future for Pioneer now
that our legal battles with Unocal and Mobil have been
resolved.  We can get back to concentrating on exploring
for and developing gas and oil properties.  The Company's
emphasis will be on gas production, particularly coalbed
methane, throughout the Rocky Mountains.  Gas prices are
now at a ten year high and we feel that coalbed methane
with its low  risk, high reward potential is an exciting
way to generate good cash flow for the Company as it
emerges from Chapter 11."

RESURGENCE PROPERTIES: Announces Second Quarter Results
Resurgence Properties Inc. (Nasdaq: RPIA) announced today
that net assets in liquidation (total assets less total  
liabilities) at June 30, 1998 was approximately $7,307,000
($.73 per share).

On July 23, 1998 the Company sold its last remaining
significant asset, Cross Creek Business Center for net
proceeds of approximately $12,000,000 of which
approximately $4,410,000 was applied toward the full
repayment of the mortgage loan.  On July 27, 1998 the Board
of Directors declared the fifth liquidating dividend of
$.65 per share to common shareholders of record as of  
August 6, 1998 and approved the redemption of all of the

The Company currently has one asset remaining which it is
trying to sell. Assuming the sale of such asset and
satisfaction of its obligations, the Company anticipates
making a final liquidating distribution to shareholders in  
January 1999.

On September 26, 1997, the Shareholders of the Company
approved a plan of complete liquidation and dissolution of
the Company.  The amount and timing of any further
liquidating distributions will depend upon a variety  
of factors including, but not limited to, the actual
proceeds from the sale of the Company's remaining asset,
the ultimate settlement amounts of the Company's
liabilities and obligations, actual costs incurred in
connection with carrying out the Plan, including management
fees and administrative costs during the liquidation
period, and the timing of the liquidation and dissolution.

Resurgence was engaged in diversified real estate
activities including the ownership, operation and
management of retail, office, industrial/warehouse and
multi-family real estate located throughout the
United States, and investments in mortgage loans.  

Resurgence was formed as a result of the consummation of
the Chapter 11 reorganization of Liberte Investors (f/k/a
Lomas and Nettleton Mortgage Investors) on April 7,
1994. Pursuant to the reorganization, Liberte transferred
most of its assets to Resurgence.   Resurgence is managed
and administered by Wexford Management LLC.

REUTER MANUFACTURING: Reports Second Quarter Net Loss
Reuter Manufacturing, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: RTMF)
announced that it will report a net loss of $574,753 on
sales of $3,046,450 for the second  quarter of 1998,
compared to net income of $4,246,524 on sales of $5,713,985
during the same period in 1997. The net income reported for
the second quarter of 1997 included an extraordinary gain
of $3,431,052 resulting from the retirement of debt with
Sanwa Business Credit Corporation announced in April 1997.

The Company will report a net loss of $1,013,706 on sales
of $6,704,570 for the six months ended June 30,  
1998, compared with net income of $4,895,393 on sales of
$10,731,410 for the same period in 1997.  
The net income for the six months ended June 30, 1997
included an extraordinary gain of $3,431,052.

"The expected disappointment in the second quarter sales
and net loss was due to continued schedule softness from
several of our contract medical customers and the
finalization of production for one of the Company's  
industrial customers. We took corrective action to reduce
overhead in April, and again in June," said Michael J.
Tate, President and CEO. "We also reduced our direct labor
work force to match capacity with demand."

He added, "The level of sales we experienced during the
first six months of the year is expected to remain
relatively consistent for the remainder of 1998, due to the
continuing softness in medical product volume and a several
months  delay in the introduction of a new product by a
large engine customer. Our strong efforts to attract
industrial and cryogenic product volume may
result in  some improvement toward the end of 1998. Due to
the slow volume and its impact on cash, we are exploring
additional cash conservation and generation actions."

SSE TELECOM: Announces Third Quarter Results
SSE Telecom Inc. (Nasdaq/NMS:SSET) Wednesday announced that
for the third quarter ended June 27, 1998, the company
reported a net loss of $5,989,000.

This compares with a net loss of $3,939,000, for the same
period last year.

Revenue for the quarter was $6,160,000 compared with
$9,790,000 for the third  
quarter of fiscal 1997.

For the nine months ended June 27, 1998, the net loss was
$2,551,000, compared with a net loss of $2,617,000 last
year. Revenue was $29,592,000 compared with $33,252,000 for
the same period in fiscal 1997.

"The third-quarter loss is in line with previously
announced estimates for the quarter and is consistent with
our plan to refocus on the company's strengths in the
satellite transceiver and modem market. We have upgraded  
management, sales, operations and product development
capabilities with the recent hiring of seasoned Satcom
professionals and are in the process of consolidating
manufacturing facilities and processes," said Lee
Blachowicz, president and chief executive officer.

At June 27, 1998, SSE reported working capital of
$13,804,000, a current ratio of 2.2-to-1, long-term debt
and capital lease obligations of $2,829,000 and
stockholders' equity of $16,328,000. SSE currently owns
approximately  218,000 common shares of EchoStar
Communications Corp. (Nasdaq:DISH), which are  valued on
the company's balance sheet at approximately $5.3 million.

On July 16, 1998 the company reported it had reacquired
ownership of CTSI, a former subsidiary that had been held
in trust since 1989. As a result of this transaction, SSE
will receive approximately $5.8 million in cash, pre-
tax,  which will be reflected in the company's fourth-
quarter financials.

SSE Telecom is a leading satellite earth station component
and system manufacturer. To date, more than 35,000 of SSE's
transceivers or modems have been installed in satellite
earth stations in more than 110 countries worldwide.
