WX Cet superhumps update

   Using the preliminary analysis of the Nov. 13 run, we have obtained
the best superhump period of WX Cet on two-night basis as 0.05944 +/- 0.00005
day.  Superhumps have grown slightly, with an amplitude of 0.20 mag.
The obtained superhump period is significantly shorter than that obtained
during the 1996 superoutburst.  WX Cet had faded by ~0.2 mag compared to
Nov. 12.
