               BAHR, Administrative Patent Judge.                                                                               




                                                    DECISION ON APPEAL                                                          
                      This is a decision on appeal from the examiner's final rejection of claims 5-16 and 49-                   
               51.  Claims 1-4, the only other claims pending in this application, stand withdrawn from further                 
               consideration under 37 CFR  1.142(b) as being directed to a non-elected invention.  We note                     
               that the appellant requested cancellation of claims 17-48, at the top of the "Request Form for                   
               Continuation or Divisional Application Under 37 CFR  1.60" filed June 7, 1995 (Paper No.                        
               1), but a review of the application file reveals that this amendment has not been physically
