          Appeal No. 1997-1174                                                        
          Application 08/353,681                                                      


               The remaining claims on appeal, dependent directly or                  
          indirectly on claim 12, also contain the above limitation.                  
          Thus, we will not sustain the rejection as to these claims.                 
          We have not sustained the rejection of claims 12 through                    
          21 under 35 U.S.C.  103.  Accordingly, the Examiner's                      
          decision is reversed.
