Appncanon ined october 4,

My present invention relates to cartons intended for general use but especially adapted for use in connection with ice cream carton fillers of the type disclosed and broadly claim-ed iu the Huntley and l'rwin U. S. Letters Patent No. 1,532,055 of ldarch 31, 1925 and Huntley applications Serial No.' 116,833, filed June 18, 1926 and Serial No. 120,456 filed July 3, 1926.

Generally stated, the invention consists of the novel construction and arrangement of parts hereinafter described and defined in the claims.

The invention is illustrated in the accom panyng drawings, wherein lilre char eters indicate like parte throughout the several views.

Referring to the drawings:

Fig. 1 is a view of the improved carton in central longitudinal section with the covers separated from the body thereof;

Fig. i2 is a fragmentary view` corresponding to Fig. 1, but showing one of the covers in position on the body of 'the carton;

Fig. 3 is a view corresponding to Fig. i). but showing the several parts separated, the one from the other;

Fig. 4 is a vieiv in central longitudinal section showing the filled carton body removed from the filler and having the covers applied thereto; and

Fig. 5 is a View corresponding' to Fig. l but showing one of the covers removed from the body, and the other @over is shown pressed into the body of the carton, de tached from its capping flange and with the .ice cream partly projected from said body. i

The improved carton may be made from paper or any other suitable material and comprises a cylindrical body 7 With open ends to which are applied removable caps S. Said body 7 is smooth throughout its entire length 5 has a constant diameter from one end to the other.

Each cover 8 is in the form of a disc provided With an outwardly extended peripheral flange 9 and a capping flange 10. Said cover 8 is of such diameter as to snugly fit within the body 7 for axial movement therethrough. The outer end portion of the capping flange 10 is folded inward upon itn self to afford a channel 11 into which the outwardly extending peripheral flange 9 1926. Serial N0. 139,385.

extends with freedom for axial separation` therefrom.

The perioheral flange 9 and capping flange 10 are held in assembled relation by frictional Contact the one with the other, and to incre this frietional Contact the inturned portion of said @rapping flange is circuniferentially crin'iped at 12 onto the peripheral flange 9. l'ly `reference to Fig. 2 it Will be noted that the peripheral flange Q lis slightly circumferentially expanded `where it is teleseoped into the channel 11 and holdsthe cover S axially aligned 'fith the body 7. rThe covers 8, when applied to the body 7, are held by their capping flanges 10 snbetantially in the plane of the ends of said body.

The improved carton may be filled in any suitable manner, but when it is desired to fill the same by use lof an ice cream carton filler of the type disclosed in the previously noted pat-ents the caps 8 are renioved from the body 7 and said body placed in the filler. flaid filler is then. inserted. into a can and pressed into the body of' ice cream contained therein until tl carton body 7 is completely filled. fl-.t the completion of the filling of the on body 7 with ice cream the filler is ren'ioved from the can and the carton body 7 removed therefrom, and tl e caps 8 are aiplied as shown in` Fig. l; by telescoping thei 1f capping flanges 10 onto the body ,7. d carton is new ready to be 'ram f .1 to the custmner.

'.lo remove the ice cr im o from the carton, one of the covers 8 and its capping flange 10 is removed from the body 7 and the other cover 8 is used as a follower and pressed axially into said body toproject the ice cream from the other end thereof. The initial movement of one of the covers 8 into the body 7 Withdravs its peripheral flange 9 from the channel 11 and detaches said cover from its cappingl flange 10 which remains on the body 7, as shown in Fig. 6. As the ice cream a is projected from the body 7 the same may be cut into slices or the ent-ire body of said ice cream may be removed from the carton. To cause the ice cream a to freely move from its body 7 Water may be poured over the exterior of the carton before the covers 8 are remover therefrom.

In the use of carton filling devices such as above referred to it is very necessary that the carton applied in the filler be atrue cylinder .completely ope'n at both ends. To properly ll the carton it is necessary that the air be permitted freely to escape from the unfilled end thereof. n

In practice it is highly important also that it be made possible to readily remove as a cake the entire contents of the carton just before it is to be served. Hence the importance of the displaceable discs Which may be i forcedV from the heads through thecylindrical carton to press the ice cream cake .out of the carton. Obviously L cake removed as just indicatednmay be sliced substantially the same as a brick ofl ice cream. Vhereas, if not. removedl asV an entirety the crea-1n would have to be dug out of the carton with ay spoon.

Hence,` the importance of the carton of the character above described and herein claimed;-

VVhat I claim is: l". A carton comprising a cylindrical body open at both ends, and cap-like covers de# taehably telescoped around and onto the ends of said cylindrical body, at least one of said covers comprising' an annular rim portion `telescoped onto the exterior of the end 0f said body and having a displaceable discflike portion capable of being readily forced from said rim into and through said body.

2. A carton comprising a cylindrical body open at both ends, and caps defachably teleseoped around and onto the ends of said d I. d caps comprising rim portionsand c-lilre central portions,said rim and disc-` ine central portions having'V fricti'onally'in- 'erlapped fianges, and said disc-like portions being;v heldv against outward movements, but

boing readily displaced from the cooperating rims by inward pressure and capable of being forced through said cylindrical body in close contact therewith.

n testimony whereof I aflix my signature. i
