Item 3       THE PERSON FILING IS A:

             For Bankers Trust New York Corporation,

      (g)    [X] Parent Holding Company, in accordance with
                 Section 240.13d-1(b)(ii)(G)

             For Bankers Trust Company,

      (b)    [X] Bank as defined in section 3(a)(6) of the Act.

Item 4       OWNERSHIP:

      (a)    Amount Beneficially Owned:

             (i)   As of December 31, 1994, Bankers Trust Company,
             as Trustee for various trusts, and employee benefit
             plans (the "Bank"), was the beneficial owner of
             3,870,674 shares of common stock.  
             
             (ii)  It was also the record owner of 3,457,248 shares
             held by the Bank as Trustee of the Cincinnati Bell
             Management/Non Management Plan (the "Plan") with
             respect to which the bank disclaims beneficial
             ownership.
                   The Plan states that each Plan participant shall
             have the right to direct the manner in which shares of
             common stock shall be voted at all stockholders'
             meetings.  The Department of Labor has expressed the
             view that, under certain circumstances, ERISA may
             require the Trustee to vote shares which are not
             allocated to participants' accounts and unvoted
             shares.  Since, in the view of the Bank and Bankers
             Trust New York Corporation, such voting power is
             merely a residual power based upon the occurrence of
             an unlikely contingency and is not a sole or shared
             power to vote the securities, the Bank and Bankers
             Trust New York Corporation hereby disclaim beneficial
             ownership of such securities.

             constitutes 5.9% of the Issuer's outstanding Common

             disclaims beneficial ownership constitutes 5.3% of the
             Issuer's outstanding Common Stock.

             ANOTHER PERSON:

             As Trustee for various trusts, and employee benefit
             plans for which the Bank serves as Trustee, have the
             right to receive and/or the power to direct the
             receipt of dividends from, or the proceeds from the
             sale of, such securities.

Item 7       IDENTIFICATION AND CLASSIFICATION OF THE SUBSIDIARY
