  1. The ornamental design for a can, as shown and described.
Description

FIG. 1 is a top perspective view of a can showing our new design with the top portion omitted and the neck in the unassembled position for clarity of illustration;

FIG. 2 is a side elevational view thereof, the other sides being the same as the side shown;

FIG. 3 is a top plan view thereof;

FIG. 4 is a bottom plan view thereof;

FIG. 5 is a cross-sectional view taken along the line 5--5 of FIG. 2;

FIG. 6 is a top perspective view of the can shown with the top portion in place and the neck in the assembled position;

FIG. 7 is a side elevational view of FIG. 6, the other sides being the same as the side shown; and,

FIG. 8 is a top plan view of FIG. 6.

The broken lines showing a can tab in FIG. 6 and 8 are for illustrative purposes only and form no part of the claimed design. The interior of the sidewall of the can that is partially shown in FIG. 1 has the same surface pattern as the exterior of the can except that the vertical flutes on the surface are convex as shown in FIG. 5.

The characteristic feature of the design resides in the specific configuration of the flutes in combination with the can as shown.
