          Appeal No. 1997-4279                                                        
          Application No. 08/486,702                                                  


                              The rejection of claim 14                               


               We affirm the rejection of claim 14 under 35 U.S.C.  103              
          as being unpatentable over the German reference in view of                  
          Klebanow and Pulskamp.                                                      


               Claim 14, dependent from claim 1, adds the feature of a                
          sheet injection station for periodically injecting a sheet                  
          between adhesive coated sheets.                                             


               Based upon the argument advanced in the brief (page 7),                
          it is quite apparent to us that appellant relies solely upon                
          argument previously addressed to the content of selected claim              
          1 to support the patentability of claim 14.  Accordingly, we                
          affirm the rejection of claim 14 since, as argued, it                       
          obviously stands or falls with claim 1, the rejection of which              
          has been affirmed, supra.                                                   




                              The rejection of claim 15                               


                                          9
