          Appeal No. 1998-1320                                                        
          Application No. 08/305,643                                                  


               For the reasons discussed supra, it is our opinion that,               
          since the Examiner has not established a prima facie case of                
          obviousness, the 35 U.S.C.  103 rejection of independent                   
          claims 1, 7, and 13, as well as claims 2-6, 8-12, and 14-18                 
          dependent thereon, cannot be sustained.  Accordingly, the                   
          decision of the Examiner rejecting claims 1-18 is reversed.                 
                                      REVERSED
