          Application 08/500,091                                                      

          dence that descriptive support for the claimed subject may be               
          found in the dis-closure as originally filed, the appellants                
          have relied upon    an original declaration and a supplemental              
          declaration by                                                              
          Mr. John M. Collins.                                                        

                    We have carefully reviewed the appellants’ invention              
          as described in the specification, the appealed claims, the                 
          respective positions advanced by the appellants in the brief                
          and reply brief and by the examiner in the answer and supple-               
          mental answer,                                                              

          the prior art relied on by the examiner to support her posi-                
          and the declarations by Mr. Collins relied on by the appel-                 
          lants to support their position.  This review leads us to
