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


          the transferring means," as now claimed.  Since the evidence                
          proffered by the examiner would not have been suggestive of                 
          the noted feature of claim 15, the rejection thereof must be                
          reversed.                                                                   


               In summary, this panel of the board has:                               


               affirmed the rejection of claims 1 through 5, 7, 11                    
          through 13, and 27 through 30 under 35 U.S.C.  103 as being                
          unpatentable over the German reference in view of Klebanow;                 


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


               reversed the rejection of claim 15 under 35 U.S.C.  103               
          as being unpatentable over the German reference in view of                  
          Klebanow and Wahnschaff.                                                    


               The decision of the examiner is affirmed-in-part.                      


                                         11
