          Appeal No. 96-1604                                                          
          Application 08/272,906                                                      


          teachings of Sproull Carpenter, Hancock and Sherk as set forth              
          above.  Therefore, the examiner's rejection of these claims under           
          35 U.S.C.  103 also cannot be sustained.                                   
               Accordingly, the decision of the examiner rejecting claims 6           
          through 9, 13, 14, 22 and 23 under 35 U.S.C.  103 is reversed.             
                                   REVERSED
