          the examiner and the appellant regarding the rejections set forth           
          above, we make reference to the final rejection (Paper No. 17,              
          mailed November 25, 1994) and the examiner's answer (Paper No.              
          33, mailed July 10, 1996) for the examiner's complete reasoning             
          in support of the rejections, and to the appellant's brief (Paper           
          No. 30, filed August 8, 1995) and reply brief (Paper No. 36,                
          filed September 9, 1996) for the appellant's arguments                      
          thereagainst.                                                               


                                       OPINION
