               Ex parte THOMAS W. HOLMQUIST-BROWN and PETER O. REKOW                  
                                Appeal No. 1997-0153

                                      ON BRIEF                                        
          Before COHEN, NASE, and LAZARUS, Administrative Patent Judges.              
          LAZARUS, Administrative Patent Judge.                                       

                                 DECISION ON APPEAL                                   
               This is a decision on appeal from the examiner's final                 
          rejection of claims 1-4 and 6-16 under 35 U.S.C.  103.1                    

               We affirm.                                                             

          1 At pages 1-2 of the examiner’s answer it is correctly noted that “The     
          statement of the status of the claims contained in the brief is incorrect…  
          this appeal involves claims 1-4 and 6-16… claim 5 has been indicated to be  
          allowable when written in independent form.”
