                                               Application No. 08/068,256                                                    
                                                        ON BRIEF                                                             
              Before WINTERS, ROBINSON, and ADAMS, Administrative Patent Judges.                                             
              WINTERS, Administrative Patent Judge.                                                                          

                                                 DECISION ON APPEAL                                                          
                      This is a decision on the appeal under 35 U.S.C.  134 from the examiner’s final                       
              rejection of claims 1 and 8 through 12.  Claim 2 stands objected to and “would be                              
              allowable if rewritten in independent form” (final rejection, Paper No. 13, page 2).   Claims                  
              3 through 7, the only other claims pending in the application, have been withdrawn from                        
              further consideration under 37 CFR  1.142(b) as not readable on the elected claims.                           

                      Claim 1, which is illustrative of the subject matter on appeal, reads as follows:
