Tyler & Mllford, plasters.- - PATENT OFFICE A new record for the number of applications received in the United State patent office was established during the last fiscal year, the annual report of Commissioner of Patents Thomas E. Robertson reveals. During that period a total 'of 11,961 applications were pre sented for consideration, an in crease of $168 over-1927, whicn was the peak year up to that time. The work of tho Patent Office, Commissioner Robertson declares, Is aerlogsly hampered because of the Insufficient number of technical examiners available. Although the applications for patents have Increased more than 11,000 since 1 925, the force of examiners Is actually less now than It was during that year. The delay In acting on the applications; it Is pointed out,' has a tendency to act aa a drag on the industries of this country. Because of insufficient personnel to handle the business, cases awaiting official action have rlaen to 106,676 the largest number ever recorded, and an Increase of approximately 42,000 over last year. In contrast to the situation pre vailing In the patent divisions of the service, the. report shows that the trade-mark and design divis ion are aoi to Keep their worn current, acting on new cases within 10 days.'
