(182)                       Notices of Abandonment

   The Trademark Operation has begun notifying trademark applicants when 
their pending applications have been abandoned by the Office. Under this 
new procedure, a computer-generated post card bearing the notice, serial 
number, applicant name and abandonment date will be sent to the 
correspondence address designated by the applicant. The post cards will 
be mailed within 2 to 4 weeks after the application is declared abandoned.
