                             Ex parte LOUIS J. SHRINKLE

                              Application 08/353,681                                  
                                   ON BRIEF                                           
          Before THOMAS, HECKER and GROSS, Administrative Patent Judges.              
          HECKER, Administrative Patent Judge.                                        
                                 DECISION ON APPEAL                                   
               This is a decision on appeal from the final rejection of               
          claims 1 and 12 through 21.  Claim 1 was canceled by an                     
          amendment after final rejection, Paper No. 13.  Thus, claims                
          12 through 21 remain finally rejected, and constitute all                   
          claims pending in the application.
