                               Application 08/390,029                                 
                                      ON BRIEF                                        

          Before KIMLIN, GARRIS, and OWENS, Administrative Patent                     
          OWENS, Administrative Patent Judge.                                         

                                 DECISION ON APPEAL                                   
               This is an appeal from the examiner’s refusal to allow                 
          claims 4, 5, 7, 9 and 10 as amended after final rejection.                  
          Claim 8, which is the only other claim remaining in the                     
          application, stands withdrawn from consideration by the                     
          examiner as being directed toward a nonelected invention.
