 reasons stated below, it has been determined that the exceptions must be
 dismissed as untimely filed.
 
    The Arbitrator's award in this case is dated January 24, 1983, and
 appears to have been served on the parties by mail on the same day.  In
 the award the Arbitrator retained jurisdiction for a period of 60 days
 "for the purpose of supervising compliance . . . and resolving any

 submitted a request for clarification within the 60 day period asking
 that the Arbitrator clarify the actions necessary in order to comply
 with the award.  On July 20, 1983, the Arbitrator responded to the
