               This is an appeal from the examiner’s refusal to allow                 
          claims 1 through 9, as amended subsequent to the final                      
          rejection.  These claims constitute all of the claims pending               
          in this application.1

               1While the examiner has approved entry of the amendment after final    
          rejection (Paper No. 6, filed May 9, 1996), we note that this amendment has 
          not been clerically entered.
