          Appeal No. 95-4722                                                          
          Application 07/946,226                                                      




          The examiner relies on the following references:                            
          Wah Lo                        4,800,407          Jan. 24, 1989              
          Hiraoka                       4,870,600          Sep. 26, 1989              
          Travis                        5,132,839          July 21, 1992              
          Claims 1-24 stand rejected under 35 U.S.C.  103.  As                       
          evidence of obviousness the examiner offers Wah Lo in view of               
          Travis with respect to claims 1-17 and 21-24, and Hiraoka in                
          view of Travis with respect to claims 18-20.                                
          Rather than repeat the arguments of appellants or the                       
          examiner, we make reference to the brief and the answer for                 
          the respective details thereof.                                             
          OPINION                                                                     
          We have carefully considered the subject matter on                          
          appeal, the rejections advanced by the examiner and the                     
          evidence of obviousness relied upon by the examiner as support              
          for the rejections.  We have, likewise, reviewed and taken                  
          into consideration, in reaching our decision, the appellants'               
          arguments set forth in the brief along with the examiner's                  
          rationale in support of the rejections and arguments in                     
          rebuttal set forth in the examiner's answer.
