Application filed august so, 192s. Serial No. 132,571.

The present invention relates to golf tees and has for its object the provision of-agolfing accessory of this kind which is light in weight, strong, attractive in appearance,

and inexpensive'to manufacture. One embodiment of the invention is illustrated by way of example in the accompanying drawin in which:

igure 1 is a side elevation of; the tee showing a golf ball positioned thereon;

' figure 2 is an axial section therethrough; an

Figure 3 is a section on line 33 of Fig. 2. The tee comprises a single strip of paper wound spirally upon itself to form a trun'- cated cone. Preferably the ends of the strip are bevelled or are deckle edges so that the walls of the resulting cone are'substantiallycircular in transverse section, both in-- side and outside. The several convolutions of the cone are secured together by paste to form a unitary structure. After the truncated cone is formed its upper end is hollowed out,as shown, by a cutting or grinding operation, or even by pressure, so that a golf ball may rest securely upon the top of the cone. Preferably the cone iscolored to render it more attractive in appearanceand to enable it to be detected 'in the event that it is knocked from the tee.

In the manufacture of frustro-conical tubes to supply the needs of the textile industry, a paper blank is wound upon a man: drel into conical form, the paper being coated with paste so that the several convolutions adhere together and, before leaving the mantru'ly circular edges.

drel, the cone like tube has its ends trimmed by knives which press against the mandrel.

I sually a small portion is taken from the upper end and a small portion from the lower 40 end of the cone, leaving the larger cone with That portion of the large cone which is removed from its small end or tip is likewise a cone, although a small one, and- I prefer-to use these small cones, which would otherwise be valuable only as paper waste, in the manufacture of golf tees. This]: do by gathering the smaller conesas they fall from the mandrel after the trimming operation, drying them, and

hollowing out b suitable means the upper end to accommo ate the curved surface of a' golf ball. Golf tees made in this manner are very serviceable, light, and extremely cheap.

They meet all the requirements of a 'good golf tee. At the same time, an outlet is found foraproduct which would otherwise be only waste material and substantially without value.
