With the construction shown in Fig. 4 of the drawing wherein a single rod 80 is employed, it will be apparent that the plate I I will be capable of longitudinal movement on the bowed rod 8c when mounted in connection with the poster, thus facilitating the arrangement of the poster in different angular positions in the vertical plane. At this time, it will also belapparent that the same result could be accomplished by having the leg member or rod frictionally engage its supporting socket in the plate 9, ill to provide for adjustment of the leg H! with respect to such plate. This is especially true in view of the fact that the poster has no material weight to be supported by the eas'elr e be apparent that my invention is not necessarily limited to the mounting of the poster in the particular position indicated, nor am I necessarily limited to the particular form of the coupling plates herein disclosed nor to the number of rods employed in conjunction with said plate, and various changes in and modifications ofthe structure shown and described may be made within the scope of the appended claims without departing from the spirit of my invention or sacrificing its advantages.

, Having fully described my invention, what l2 claim as new and desire to-secure by Letters Patent, is:

1. A supporting device for posters, of the class elongated spring rod member adapted to engage the poster to support the same in'extended position, a coupling plate on said member substantially centrally thereof,

aleg coupled with said plate and extending therefrom angularly with respect to said member, and said plate being rotatableon said member.

2. A supporting device for posters of the class described comprising an elongated. spring rod the poster to support a leg coupled with said' plate and extending therefrom angularly with respect to said member, and said plate being adjustable on said member longi- 3.- A-supporting device for posters of the class described comprising a coupling plate, one side edge of; which is curled to form a cylindrical socket and the other side edge having a curled cylindrical socket-disposed angularly with respect tothe first named socket, rods detachably coupled with the sockets of said plate, one of said rods projecting from both ends to support the same in extended position, and the rod attached to the other socket extending from one end of the plate only and adapted to form a said poster. '1

4. Asupportingdevice for posters of the, class coupling plate, one side edge of which is curled to form a cylindrical socket and the other side edge having a curled cylindricalsocket disposedangularly with respect to the first named socket, rods detachably coupled with the sockets of said plate, one of said {rods .having end portions projecting from both ends of the plate and adapted to engage the poster the poster,

to support the same in extended position, the rod attached to the other socket extending from one end of the plate only and adapted to form a supporting leg for said poster, and said plate being adjustable longitudinally of the first named rod to raise and. lower the second named rod with respect to a support to vary the inclination of the poster on said support.

- 5. A supporting device for postersofthe class described comprising a coupling plate, one side edge of which is curled to form a cylindrical socket and the other side edge having a curled cylindrical socket disposed angularly. with respect to the first named socket, rods detachably coupled with the sockets of said plate, one of said rods having endportions projecting from both ends of the plateand adapted to engage the poster to support the same in extended position, the rod attached to the other socket extending from one 'end of the plate only and adapted to form a supporting leg for said poster, said plate being adjustable longitudinally of the first named rod to raise and lower the second named rod with respect to a support to vary the inclination of the poster on said support, and said plate beingrotatableon the firstnamed rod in the different positions of adjustment thereof;

6. In'an easelof the class I gated coupling plate having angularly disposed side edges, one edge being at right anglesto the ends of said'plate and the other edge at an angle greater than ninety degreesto one of said ends,

each side edge being curled toform atubular described, an elongated coupling plate having angularly disposed side edges, each side edge being curled to form a tubular socket, the tubular socket at each edge extending throughout the full length of the plate or the edge ,thereotthe body portion of the plate joining the-tubular sockets throughout the length of the plate, and one of said tubular sockets being arc-shaped in form.

8. A display device of the class described comprising a flexible sheethaving relatively rigid end portions, an easel for supporting said sheet in extended position, said easel comprising a rod member of a length greater than the distance between the ends of said sheet, said member being placed under tension in coupling the endsthereof with the rigid ends of said sheet and maintained under tension when attached to the sheet ,to maintain the sheet in extended position, said easel including another rodforming a leg for to arrange the leg angularly with respect to said member. a

9. A display device of the class described comprising a flexible sheet having relatively rigid end portions, an easel for supporting said sheet in extended position,said easel comprising a rodmember of a length greater than the distance between the ends of said sheet, said member being. placed under tension in coupling the. ends thereof with the rigid ends of said sheet and maintained under tension when attached to the sheet to maintain the sheet in extended position, said easel including another rod forming a leg for supporting the sheet in upright position, a sheet metal plate coupling said member and leg together, opposed side edges of the plate being curved to form bearings, one for said member and the other for said leg, said bearings being angularly disposed with reference to each other to arrange the leg angularly with respect to said member, and said plate being rotatable and longitudinally adjustable on a said member.
