WITNESSES: INVENTOR I %Z% M BY ATTORNEY v ALDEN L. MCMURTRY, OF SOUND BEACH, CONNECTICUT.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Mar. 26, 1912.
Application filed May 6, 1911. Serial No. 625,444.
To all whom it may voncern:
Be it known that I, ALDEN L. MCMUR- rnr, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Sound Beach, in Fairfield county, and State of Connecticut, United States of America, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Bubble- I-Iats, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to a device which may be called a bubble hat, which is an arrangement combined with a hat for producing soap bubbles therefrom. Its object is to provide a device of this kind for theatrical or scenic effects.
In the specification I will describe I the construction and the novel arrangement of parts which I have invented, and will point out the novel features thereof in the appended claims.
The drawing shows my invention in perspective with a portion thereof drawn in section. The hat is shown on a wearer in order to illustrate how it is to be used.
10 designates a cuplike receptacle which is arranged to be attached in some suitable manner to the head of a person. Preferably this receptacle is afiixed to the crown of a hat 11 which, for the purpose of more effectively concealing it, may be a. trimmed hat as shown.- A part ofthis hat is broken ried upon the person 0 the user of this .ap-.
paratus and is to be concealed. It is filled with some suitable light gas such as hydrogen under pressure. The cuplike receptacle is to be partly filled with a solution of soap and water.
. The wearer of this device may at will open the valve 15 momentarily, thus allowing some of the as from the tank 14 to escape up through t e tubing 13 and out through the end of the tube 12 which is under the soap and water'solution. This will cause a soap bubble to be formed which, on account of the lightness of the gas, will release itself and will ascend. This operation may be repeated at desired intervals, or, by holding the valve open, a plurality of bubbles may be formed in rap1d succession.
This device is designed primarily for the-' atrical purpose and it is to be understood that a number of persons such as the members of a chorus may be equipped with such apparatus so that they may together or singly cause bubbles to arise from their heads, either in conjunction with a song or otherwise. Thus, a strikingly novel scenic effect is produced which may be largely enhanced by having colored lightsprojected upon the bubbles.
What I claim is.
I 1; A cupilike receptacle, means for attaching said receptacle to a persons body, 'a
tube projecting through the lower portion of the receptacle, a portable gas tank connected with said tube, and a manually controlled valve.
2. A cuplike receptacle, means for attaching said receptacle to a persons head, a tube projecting throu h the lower port-ion of the receptacle, saic tube extending up ward on the outside of the receptacle, a portable gas tank, a manually controlled valve therefor, and a hollow flexible connection between the tank and the tube.
3. A hat, a cuplik-e receptacle therein, a tube projecting through the lower portion of the receptacle, a gas tank connected with said tube, and a manually controlled valve.
4.- A hat, a cu like receptacle therein, a
name to this specification in the presence of two subscribin witnesses.
