47 r M AFTCIRNEYS Patented Feb. 21, 11933 NTED STATES PATENT OFFICE WALTER M. LENNSTROM, OF DOUGLASTON, NEW vYCRK Application led April 15,

The invention aims primarily to provide a combined card case and score recorder which will be simple and compact in construction and easily operated to enable the score sheet to be progressively fed to writing position1 and removed from the case after use. Further objects and advantages of the invention will be in part obvious and in part specifically mentioned in the description hereinafter contained which, taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawing, discloses a preferred embodiment thereof. Such embodiment, however, is to be considered only as illustrative of its principles. In the drawing- Fig. 1 is a plan view of a combined card case and score recorder constructed in accordance with the invention;

Fig. 2 is a longitudinal vertical section thereof, and

Fig. 3 is a transverse section.

The invention is disclosed as applied to a combined card case and score recorder having a container of elongated rectangular shape and provided with a card-receiving space or compartment 1 and a score sheet supply space or compartment 2. In the present form of the invention the card-receiving compartment 1 is defined or bounded yby one wall 3 of the container, and an interior partition 4 which is bent to form an end portion 5 which separates the compartments 1 and 2. The end of the compartment 1 which appears at the top of Figs. 1 and 2 is left open, thus permitting the cards to be withdrawn from the upper end of the container. As shown, the cards are held in a drawer 6 which is removable from the container and which of itself is of well known construction and therefore need not be described in detail. Two packs of 0 cards 7 are shown as carried within the drawer 6. lt will be understood, however, that the specific details of construction as above described are not essential to the invention in its broader aspects.'

Room is left between the drawer 6 and the exterior wall 11 of the container, as hereinafter described in greater detail, for a passageway 10 which leads from compartment 2 past the drawer 6 to the open end of the container. The partition 4, when employed, may

constitute the bottom of this passageway 10. The score sheet supply in compartment 2 is shown in the form of a roll 8 of paper, from which roll the paper sheetl 9 is fed into a passageway 10 which leads from compartment 2 to the exterior of the container, preferably in such manner that the wall 4rof the container which overlies compartment 1, constitutes abaclring for the portion ofthe sheet 8 which is to be written upon. In theillus- R trated form of the inventionthe top exterior wall 11 of the container is provided with a window 12 which overlies passageway 10 and renders the sheet 9 accessible for score recording purposes. .5,5 The supply 8 of paper may be replenished through a door 13 leading to 'compartment 2, the end of the sheet being pushed into passageway 10 until it is accessible through window 12, aft-er which the window 12 affords access to thesheet to manually .push the latter along through passageway 10 as needed.

f In the present form of the invention the outlet 14 of passageway 10 is at the opposite h end of the container and preferably the adjacent edge 15 of the exterior wall'11 ofthe container is shaped as shown in Fig. 1 to provide a tearing edge against which used portions of the paper sheet 9 may be torn off.

While a specific form of the invention has 5 been described it should be understood that changes may be made therein without departing from the invention as defined in the appended claims.

I claim:

1.k A combined card case and score. re-` corder, including a container having at one end walls forminga score sheet supply compartment, a drawer adapted to contain cards fitting slidably within said container, said container' having an open face therein where' by said drawer may be removed, one of said container walls being interposed between said supply compartment and drawer and abutting the inner end of the drawer when the latter is within the container and said convtainer also having a window in another of s its sidewails overlying said drawer, the wall of said drawer adjacent said window being spaced therefrom, and the space thereby afforded being utilized to provide a score sheet receiving passageway interposed between the drawer and said last mentioned wall, said passageway communicating with said score sheet supply compartment and leading to the exterior of the container.

2. A combined card case and score recorder, including a container having at one end walls forming a score sheet supply compartment, a drawer adapted to contain cards itting slidably within said container, said container having an open face therein, whereby said drawer may be removed, one of said container walls being interposed between said supply compartment and drawer and abutting the inner end ofthe drawer when the latter is within the container one of the exterior walls of said container having a window overlying said drawer and said container having an interior wall interposed between said window and drawer, said interior wall being spaced from the window to provide a score sheet vreceiving passageway communicating with said score sheet supply compartment and leading to the exterior of the container.

3. A combined card case and score recorder including a container having at one end walls forming a score sheet supply compartment, a drawer adapted to contain cards titting slidably within said container, said container having an open face therein whereby said drawer may be removed, one of said container walls being interposed between said supply compartment and drawer and abutting the inner end of the drawer when the latter is within the container, and said container also having a window in another of its sidewalls overlying said drawer, the wall of said drawer adjacent said window being spaced therefrom, and the space thereby afforded being utilized to provide a score sheet receiving passageway interposed between the drawer and said last mentioned wall, said passageway communicating with A said score sheet supply compartment and leading to the exterior of the container, one of the irst mentioned walls of said container forming a removable door adapted to swing open to afford access to said score sheet supply compartment.

In testimony whereof I have signed my Y* name to this specication.
