in Table 1 of which 21 (those marked with an asterisk in the table in Attachment D #s 1 , 
7-1 3, 1 6-1 8, 20, 21 , 27, 28, 30, 31 and 41 -44) do not contain one or more of a rare 
earth, a group III element or an alkaline earth element. Yet all 42 are made according 
to the general principals or ceramic science taught by applicants. Two of the 42 
materials have a Tc of 25K. Thus a person of skill in the art following applicants' 
teaching can fabricate materials which avoid the claims allowed by the examiner but not 
the claims not allowed by the examiner. 



Table 1 in attachment C list 7 references as the source of the information on the 
42 high Tc materials. Those references are listed below. For references 1-5 
Attachments C to H respectively, contain the title page and table of contents of the 
corresponding books. References 6 and 7 are articles, copies of which are in 
Attachments H and I respectively.
