          Application 08/507,424                                                      


          withdrawn from further consideration under 37 CFR  1.142(b)                
          as not readable on the elected invention.                                   


               Appellants’ invention pertains to a wheel blocking                     
          device.  Details of the invention can be readily understood                 
          upon reading the appealed claims, a correct copy of which                   
          appears in an appendix to appellants’ brief.                                
               The references of record relied upon by the examiner in                
          support of a rejection under 35 U.S.C.  103 are:                           
          Cone                          4,207,019                     Jun.            
          10, 1980                                                                    
          Blunden                  4,679,974                     Jul. 14,             
          1987                                                                        
               Claims 1-8 and 14-16 stand rejected under 35 U.S.C.  103              
          as being unpatentable over Blunden in view at Cone.                         
               The teachings of the applied references are fully set                  
          forth on page 3 of appellants’ brief and need not be repeated               
          here.                                                                       
                                     Claims 1-8                                       
               Considering first the  103 rejection of claim 1, the                  
          essence of the rejection is the examiner’s position that it                 


                                          2
