The very most that can be said for the appellant's patent is that it discloses a mere mechanic's adaptation of a device in public use and on sale more than a year before the patent was applied for to make that earlier device more readily attachable to the basic structure with which it was designed to cooperate to produce a vibrating chair or bed. We see no need to elaborate upon the District Court's fully and carefully reasoned opinion. D.C., 232 F.Supp. 372.


Judgment will be entered affirming the judgment of the District Court dismissing count one of the plaintiff's complaint.
