          Appeal No. 1997-0074                                                        
          Application No. 08/123,092                                                  

               Hunt has additionally been cited in the rejection of                   
          dependent claims 6, 12, 13 and 17-20, for its teaching of                   
          tucking the edges of the covering into a slot in the item                   
          being covered.  Even if one considers Hunt, which is directed               
          to covering a bowling pin with a fabric and lacquer, to be                  
          analogous art, it fails to alleviate the shortcomings                       
          discussed above with regard to the four references applied                  
          against the independent claims.  The rejection of these claims              
          is not sustained.                                                           

               Neither rejection is sustained.
