Still another very important object of the inIi for swinging movement in a vertical plane are

'swingingloops, novel means for connecting said
loops together for operation in unison. '
Other objects of the invention are to provide

All of the foregoing and still further objects
and advantages of the invention will become apparent from a study of the following speci?cation,
element l6 which may be utilized for supp0rting25 the article as well as for drawing the loops l2 in

capable'of assuming a large number of di?erent
shapes, such as those illustrated in Figs. 3 to 6; 35 -
Figures 3 to 6,v inclusive, are phantom views
