                                Ex parte ROBERT L. WARD                               
                                 Appeal No. 1999-1485                                 
                              Application No. 08/317,355                              
                                       ON BRIEF                                       
          Before COHEN, ABRAMS, and NASE, Administrative Patent Judges.               
          Per Curiam.                                                                 

                                  DECISION ON APPEAL                                  

               This is an appeal from the final rejection of claims 21                
          through 34.  These claims constitute all of the claims                      
          remaining in the application.                                               

               Appellant's invention pertains to a structural assembly.               
          A basic understanding of the invention can be derived from a                
          reading of exemplary claims 21 and 29, copies of which appear               
          in the APPENDIX to the main brief (Paper No. 28).
