July 27, 1943. P. M. PUNG COPY HOLDER Filed Dec.` 8, 1942 is P L'gl INVENTOR PAL/LA MERKER PU/VG HER ATTORNEY means are formed especiallyon numbered paper..

when the parts are folded out or extended as shown in the side view Figure 5. Fromthis position they are readily disengaged and folded back into the plane of the box bottom, when desired..

Holding means are provided on the top or cover of the box for lightly clamping the upper edge of the paper to be copied. vSuch holding or clamp by a pair of tabs 26 made by U-shaped .cuts H21 through the body ofthe cover near theedgegof the box which is farthest re-`A moved from the free end of the easel leg. The

cuts are spaced on each side of a longitudinal cen-v ter line and preferably terminate in small holes 28, so that the paper to be held can be pushed up 1 tight against a definite stop. ience of thecover board is hold paper inserted under enforcement, I like to push a small'wire paper clip through a small slot 29, located just above each tab. Y Inorder to suggest this procedure' to the copyistg'a picture 3|- of acommon form .of

wire clip is rprintedacross each slot -as shown inV Figurel. i Marker, means arerprovided for convenience infollowing down =the sheet of' copy.1 -Sucha marker is conveniently made offa heavyzkraft paperstriphaving its vends 32 adhesivelyi united to forma band 33 of such size'as will readily slide .back and forth on the closed box. rA'ilange' 34 extending kfrom one edge of the band,-and foldedy down yinside between band'y and box exerts enough: resilient pressure against the Vcovervto hold the band in {Whateverpo'sition it is pushed to. When 'access tothe box for morecarbon is' wanted, `the marker vband'fis`push`edup abovefthe hinge linev 9`to permit the,v hinged portion offthe cover to ybe lifted. It Will sliding the band, iirstr downwardlyover the fold#l ed in tie-piece and then upwardly over the folded in leg, that the ,marker retain the leg and tie-piece snugly in foldedor y retracted positions, and the cover sition so that theibox' and tight and' compact"package,v shipment'or for storage betweenperic'ds of use.

`i's'anfadvantage to .the-..aidedweight "'copyist 'wishes to put the box away in a drawer, it

then acting as a convenient means for keeping the cover tightly closed. When the need arises for mounting material for copying, it is the work of but a moment to the paper to be copied under the clamp tabs either with or without the reenforcing wire clip. With manual adjustment of the marker as required the copying may then proceed. At no timeisfthefunction of the box as a container interferedA with; and access toitfis `merely a matter of slipping the marker band oif the box or up over the nxed cover partk so that the movable cover may be raised. In fact a load of paper in the box its use as a copy holder, since adds to its stability.
