                 WARREN, Administrative Patent Judge.                                                                                              
                                                              Decision on Appeal                                                                   
                         This is an appeal under 35 U.S.C.  134 from the decision of the examiner finally rejecting                               
                 claims 1 through 10, which are all of the claims in the application.  Claims 11 and 6 are illustrative of the                     
                 claims on appeal:

                 amendment of August 22, 1995 (Paper No. 10; page 2), from which it is apparent that claim 1 as set                                
                 forth in the appendix to appellants’ brief is in error.                                                                           

                                                                   - 1 -
