                                      ON BRIEF                                        
          Before McCANDLISH, Senior Administrative Patent Judge and

                                 DECISION ON APPEAL                                   
               This is a decision on appeal from the examiner's final                 
          rejection of claims 1 through 4, which are all of the claims                
          pending in this application.  In the examiner's answer, the                 
          examiner allowed claim 4 and objected to claim 3 as depending               
          from a rejected claim.  Accordingly, claims 1 and 2 remain on               

               Application for patent filed September 27, 1994.1
