Application led September 22, 1922.

To all 'whom t may concern:

Be it known that I, CHARLES S. BURTON, a citizen of the United States, residing in Oak Park, in the county of Cook and the State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Music-Roll Containers, of which the following is aspecitication, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part thereof.

The purpose of this invention is to provide an improved construction of a box adapted for containing music rolls and like relatively long slender articles which may be withdrawn longitudinally from the box and which may therefore be accommodated in a tubular box. It consists in the elements and features of construction shown and described and as indicated by the claims.

In thedrawings Figure l is a longitudinal vertical section of a box embodying this invention in closed position, the music roll being indicated in dotted line therein.

Figure 2 is a similar View showing the interior member withdrawn in open position for removing or inserting the roll.

Figure 3 is a horizontal section of the box at fully withdrawn position of the closure as shown at line, 3 3, on Figure 2.

Figure 4 is a vertical longitudinal section of the box at open position of the closure, showing a modification.

Figure 5 is a detail vertical longitudinal section showing another slight modification.

Figure 6 is a view similar to Figure l showing the modification of Figure 5, the same being in respect to the slide-memberstopping abutment and showing the slide member at stopped position.

Figure 7 is a similar view of said modified construction with the slide member at open position, being a section on the line 7-7 of Figure 6.

The construction shown in the drawings comprises an exterior tubular box member, A, having one end closed and the other open and an interior open-to ped slide box member, B. The member, has its sides, b2, severed at the line b3, at a point intermediate the ends of said box member which may conveniently be about one-third of the length of the box back from the outward end, said sides being severed from the bottom, b, at b4 for a distance forward 'from the severance line, b3, of the sides, said severance, b4, stopping short of the forward end Serial No. 589,808.

sisting of fabric strips, D, D. But the severance of the bottom vis not essential for hinging as may be readily understood.k

rlhe sides, 510, of the drop-end, B1, it will be seen, extend inward beyond the hingeline,

b1, of the bottom, Z), to the severance line,

b3, of the sides, and said sides, 51, `are cut away at their upper edges as seen at Z211, to cause them to slope narrowingly downward and inward from a point substantially or approximately directly above the hinge line of the bottom.

It will be seen that the construction as thus far described results in giving the interior slide box member, B, a hinged dropend, B1, which upon withdrawing said slide box member a distance equal to the length of the bottom, L, from the forward Aend inward to the hinge line, may be swung down about the hinge through an angle determined by the slope of the upper edges,`b11, of the extensions of the .sides of said dropend portion; and this slope is made such that the drop-end may swing down as described far enough to bring the upper edge of the forward end substantially to the plane of the bottom, Z), of said slide box member which is still within the exterior tubular member, A. This permits the direct complete withdrawal of the roll, which it will be seen will have been withdrawn with the withdrawing movement of the interior slide box member to the extent of said withdrawing movement so that the end protrudes from the exterior tubular member, A, fark l enough to bey taken hold of to complete its withdrawal. i

For checking the withdrawing movement of the interior slide box member at the point at which the hinge line stands co-inoident with the forward end of the exterior tubular member, A, there are `provided abutments which in the form shown in Figures l, 2 and 3 are'lugs, E, E, projecting from the side walls of the tubular member, A, presenting rearwardly, or inwardly of said member, abrupt edges, e, for encounter with the forward edges, 62, of the rear portion of the sides, b2, formed by the severance of said sides at b3. These lugs, E, are convenlOO .withdrawing the slide member.

iently' produced byl making the pasteboard blank from which the tubular member, A, is formed, with the portion which forms the side walls extended beyond the portion which is to form the top and bottom, for a distance equal to the distance of the severance line, b3, back from the hinge line of the bottom of the interior slide box member, B, and folding said extensions back into the tubular box member as seen in Figure 3. To accommodate these lugs so that they may with certainty stand out in the tubular member into the path of the edges, 620, it is desirable to cut away the bottom, '221, of the drop-end, B1, at the edges along the line of severance of said bottom from the side extensions, as seen at b1?, an amount equal to the thickness of the pasteboard. The lugs, E, may be pasted against the inner sides of the outer tubular box member to prevent them from swinging so far inward as to stand in the path of the rear head of the roll in the withdrawal of the latter. Instead of the lugs, E, projecting from the sides of the tubular box member, a lug may be similarly formed projecting from the top Wall of the tubular box member for encounter with the upper corners of the edges, Z920, of the sides of the interior slide box member. rIhis construction is shown'in Figure 4, said lug being shown at a3. In Figures 5, 6 and 7 there is shown a modification in the form of an abutment which stops the slide member at withdrawn position., said modification consistsing in making the abutments, E* struck in from the sides yof the tubular member and preferably about midway in height, so that the box sides may readily be sprung outward for y As shown these abutments, EX, are in the form of narrow lugs severed at the forward end and at theupper and lower edges, and unsevered at the rear edge so that the lug may' be swung inward to present its rear end for encounter with the edge, b2", of the slide mem ber; and to insure that the lugs remain thus swung inwardly fillers, e, consisting` of. small pieces of pasteboard may be inserted in the space vacated by the inwardly sprung lugs and retained by the cover paper which is indicated by heavy lines, F.

I claim:-`

l. A container for music rolls and the like comprising an outer tubular box member and an open-topped inner box member telescoped in'to the outer member, said inner Amember having its opposite sides severed at a transverse plane intermediate the ends,

the rear part of one of the severed sides of y the inner member, positioned for such encounter at the withdrawn. position of the drop-end.

. 2. In the construction defined in claim l, the sides of the drop-end portion of the inner sliding box member beingvcut away slopingly at their upper edges from la point above the hinge line to permit thedrop-end to swing down for endwise withdrawal of the box contents and limit such down-swinging. y

3. In the construction defined in claim l,

the lug for stopping the withdrawal of the inner slidinf)` box member being carried byl a lateral waIl of the outermember.

, 4. In the construction dened in claim l foregoing,y each lateral wall of the outer tubular .member having an abutment for the encounter of the inner sliding member lto limit the withdrawal of the latter.

l5. In the construction defined in claim l foregoing, the abutnients being, formed by striking inwardly an unserved portion of the wall of the tubular member. y

6. In 'the construction defined lin claim l foregoing the abutments for stopping the sliding member being formed by inwardly struck unsevered portions of the side walls of the tubular member at substantially the middle point in Ithe height of said side walls.

7. In the construction defined iny claim l foregoing, the abutments for stopping the oriARLns s. BURToN.
