          Appeal No. 1998-1096                                                        
          Application No. 08/415,399                                                  


          Claims 5 and 6 stand finally rejected under 35 U.S.C.  102(b)              
          as being anticipated by Cannella.  Claims 8-10 stand finally                
          rejected under 35 U.S.C.  102(b) as being anticipated by                   
          Sugawara.  Claim 7 stands finally rejected under 35 U.S.C.                  
           103 as being unpatentable over Cannella in view of Sugawara.              
               Rather than reiterate the arguments of Appellants and the              
          Examiner, reference is made to the Brief and Answer for the                 
          respective details thereof.                                                 
                                       OPINION                                        
              We have carefully considered the subject matter on                     
          appeal, the rejections advanced by the Examiner, the arguments              
          in support of the rejections and the evidence of anticipation               
          and obviousness relied upon by the Examiner as support for the              
          prior art rejections.  We have, likewise, reviewed and taken                
          into consideration, in reaching our decision, Appellants’                   
          arguments set forth in the Brief along with the Examiner’s                  
          rationale in support of the rejections and arguments in                     
          rebuttal set forth in the Examiner’s Answer.                                
               It is our view, after consideration of the record before                                                                    
          us, that the claims particularly point out the invention in a               
          manner which complies with 35 U.S.C.  112, second paragraph.               
                                          3
