MR. CHIEF JUSTICE TAFT delivered the opinion of the Court.

This is a review of the decree of the circuit court of appeals of the Second Circuit, sustaining the validity of claim No. 3 of the Vandenburgh patent, just considered in the previous case of Vandenburgh v. Truscon Steel Co., ante,261 U. S. 6, and awarding $15,000 for profits to Vandenburgh for defendant's infringement. The two cases cannot be distinguished. We must therefore reverse

Reversed.
