Application 'tiled March 7, i928. Serial No. 259,656.

'lhis invention relates devices, and has more particular reference to a novel "il: choice means for a fountain pen.

rifhe invention has for an object the provision of a device of the class mentioned, which is` of simple durable construction, desirable and efficient in action, and `which can be manufactured and sold at a reasonable cost.

rlhe device consists of a fountain pen barrel attached .at one end to a pencil barrel. The free end of the pen barrel is provided With a pen point Which is connected with an ink tube Within the pen barrel. ./i cap is provided to engage over the pencil end oit' the device to cover same when not in use, and a second cap having a projecting rubber, is provided to engage over the pen point end of the device to cover same when not in use. lli clip for supporting` the device to a users clothing is attached to the pen barrel. 'lfhe second mentioned cap when in place on the device holds cer 'ain pins in, which pins are connected with means for choking the intr tube of the pen to prevent init lealmge While the rubber of this cap is being used.

For further con'iprehension of the inven tion, and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.

Referring to the accompanying drawing, forming a material part of this disclosure:

Fig. l is a side elevational view of a device constructed according to this invention.

Fig. 2 is a vieuT similar to Fig. 1, but fith the pen cap of the device removed therefrom.

Fig. 3 is a fragmentary side view of the pen barrel per se.

Fig. fl is a horizontal sectional view, taken on the line 4 4 of Fig. 2.

F ig. 5 is a side view of the pen cap, a portion thereof being bro-lien away.

Fig. 6 is a fragmentary vertical sectional view of the pen end of the device.

Fig. 7 is an enlarged fragmentary detail vievv thereof.

rlhe 'reference numeral l2 indicates generally a fountain pen barrel connected at one end to a pencil barrel 13, as indicated at lll.

The free end ofthe pen barrel l2 has a tube 20` forced therein, and a pen point 2l and flow member 22 are forced in the tube 20. An ink tube 23 is attached to the tube 20.

frenin'ally to Writing rl. cap 2d is engaged on the pencil barrel, so that the pencil end of the device may be covered when. not in use. lli cap 27 is formed ivith threads 2li engageable with threads 29 on the pen barrel l2, so that the pen end of the device may be covered when not in use. il. rubber 2l() engaged in the tip of the cap .'iir apertures 3l are formed in the cap position, the cliche members 32 are in inclined position indicated by dot-dash lines 38 in (i, so that the ink tube 23 is not pressed in or choked. ll`he cap 27 has a flange 89 adapted to press the rods 36 in, When the cap 2i' is engaged upon the barrel l2. rFhis moves the members 32 into horizontal positions, and the tube 23 is pressed together, as a means for choking the flow of ink to the pen point so that the rubber 30 may be used Without inl-r leaking from the pen point. A clip l0 is attached to the barrel l2.

ln operation, the device may be carried in a persons pocket with both end caps in place, use being made of clips e() in the customary fashion. ln use, the cap 24- may be removed to expose the pencil. rllhe rubber 30 may be used in conjunction with the pencil for erasing. ln this condition of the device mehr bers l2 cholte the tube 23 to aid in preventing init from flowing olf the pen point 2l. Also the cap may be engaged on the device, and 2? removed for use as a fountain pen.

lilfhile ll have shown and described a preferred embodiment of my invention it is to be understood that l do not limit myself. to 'the precise construction herein disclosed and the rg it is reserved to all changes and modiiications coming Within the scope of the invention as detined in the appended claims.

l-laving thus described my invention, What l claim as neuv and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is l. ln a device of the class described, a fountain pen barrel, a pen point and a tloiv member engaged in tbe berieben ink tube connected Vwith the pen and flow member, Choke members pivozdly mouned to tbe barrel, and in horizontal posi'ions being Capable of choke ing` tbe ifiow of ink in tbe seid ink tube? spring actuated rods connected to norm ally urge the choke members to inoiined positions7 and u cai-p member engaged on be ber-rei, and bolding' the rods in restrained positions so that tbc Choke members ere horizonel.

2. in a device of the bless described7 fountain pen barrel, a pen point end flow member engaged in the berrei, an ink tube oonneced with the pen and riow member, choke members pivoeily mounted bo tbe barrel, and in horizontal posiions being` capable of choking the How of' ink in tbe said ink ibube7 spring actuated rods conneced o normally urge the cboke members to inoiined positions, The seid rodev projectin` from tbe barrel und a oep member engaged on the barrel, and holding tbe extended portions of the rods in resi: r-ined posiiions so timt tbe choke members ero horizontal.

3. I* zi'deviee of the class described, :i 'fountain pen barrel., z1- pen poinl' and How member onel red therein, and a, cup member enmrgrm able thereon, an ink tube wiebiu tbe barrel and connected with 'be pen :ind How member, and e. mea: s for choking u How of ink 'from tbe seid tube to tbe pen :ind flow member7 :um ranged for oeration upon en gzigement oi? the oep upon the ber el.

e. in e device of the dass described, n foun- 'nin pen barrel, :1 oep member engrzigeuble abolie-on, en i2 iube within *die burro]4` und :1 neens for forcing; opposii'e lglortions oi tbe urbe together so es to choke :i How of ink -bereiirom, and arranged for operation upon engegemenb of 1be cap upon the barrel.

in testimony wbereoi' l have :illixed my signature.
