(67)                   Deposit Account Authorization to
                              Charge Issue Fee

   This notice supplements the Official Gazette notice, dated July 1, 
1983, published at 1032 O.G. 33 on July 26, 1983.
   The rules of practice were amended effective Oct. 1, 1982, at 37 CFR
1.25(b) to state that: "A general authorization to charge all fees, or
only certain fees, set forth in 37 CFR 1.16 to 1.18 to a deposit account
may be filed in an individual application, either for the entire
pendency of the application or with respect to a particular paper filed."
   The Patent and Trademark Office will treat broad language to "charge
any additional fees which may be required at any time during the
prosecution of the application" as authorization to charge the issue fee
on applications filed on or after Oct. 1, 1982.
