Like parts are indicated by similar characters under side of the writing tablet or cover 8, and
of reference throughout the several views.
Referring to the drawings, 1 is a box-like re
ceptacle or container to receive a packet of record
40 strips 2, which usually contains printed forms
and which are reversely folded to and fro into
zigzag formation. The record strips 2 are pro- ‘
vided with weakening lines, preferably coincident
with the folds 3, upon which the strips are
divisible into succeeding sets of sheets or slips.
The record strips 2 are apertured at spaced
intervals, the holes 4 being usuable during the
advancement of the strips and while in writing
position to insure registry of the superposed
50 printed forms and after detachment of succes
sive sheets or slips, the holes 4 may be used for
?ling purposes.
Interleaved between the terminal portions of
the record strips 2 is a sheet 5 of transfer or
55 carbon material of somewhat greater length than
that of the succeeding forms, comprising the
record strips 2, and hence the transfer sheet 5
extends somewhat beyond the initial fold and
division line 3 of the strips into overlapping rela
60 tion with the next succeeding detachable portion
of the strips. At its inner end the transfer sheet
5 carries a transversely arranged bar or strip 6
. preferably, though not necessarily, of cardboard,
the ends of which project laterally beyond the
85 longitudinal margins of the record strips 2 and
interleaved transfer sheet 5 for engagement in
pockets or recesses ‘I interiorly of the side walls
of the receptacle or box I. 'By this means the
transfer sheet or sheets, as the case may be,
70 are securely anchored interiorly of the box or.
receptacle I and extend therefrom in interleaved
relation with the terminal portions of the super—
posed record strips 2, and are thence reversely
folded collectively with the withdrawn portions of
75 the record strips into writing position upon the
they are so positioned as to engage in the aper
tures 4 of the second set of sheets or slips, com—
prising the record strips 2,. when the initial set
of such slips or sheets has been withdrawn from
the box or receptacle I. As pulling tension is
applied to the record strips to withdraw them
from the receptacle or box I, the detent plungers
I2 will be automatically depressed against the
tension of the spring bar I3 to allow the record
strips to progress through the ‘exit opening II.
When a full length of printed form or detach
able sheet or slip has been withdrawn from the
container, thus bringing the apertures 4 of the
next succeeding set of sheets or slips into registry
with the detent plungers I2, the latter will auto
matically enter such apertures 4,1 which are
spaced to agree therewith, thus serving to arrest
the advancement or withdrawal of the strips.
During such advancement the transfer sheet 5
remains stationary intermediate the record
strips 2, and the latter are moved relative there
to. Such transfer sheets 5 are provided with
apertures 4a in agreement with the detent studs
or plungers I2 which project therethrough into
engagement with the apertures 4 of the strips.
The withdrawn portions of the record strips 2
and the interleaved transfer sheets 5 are‘ folded
reversely over the lid or writing tablet 8 while
their free ends are engaged ‘beneath a spring
actuated clamp plate I5 which serves to station
arily hold the terminal portions of ‘the strips inv

In Fig. 7 there is shown a modi?cation where
in, in lieu oi’ the hinged clamp plate ll, swinging
arms I‘! .are mounted upon stationary perpen
' dicular studs II for oscillatory motion into and
mounted in a bridge bar 25 extending transversely
exit opening from the receptacle. The reciproca
tory plungers 24' project at their lower ends
through suitable openings in the bridge bar 2!

same manner as the arresting and aligning
of overlying relation with the ends of the record
plungers or studs l2. When, inthe advancement
of the strips, the apertures 40 are brought into
registry with such arresting and detent plung~
ers, they are projected by the tension of the spring
bar 21 into such apertures thereby temporarily
strips.
In Figs. 8 and 9 there is shown further modi
25 ?cations wherein, in lieu of the studs l0, spring
actuated plungers 2| are provided which project
through the holes 4 in the terminal ends of the‘
record strips and engage the top of the writing
tablet-or cover I. _By engaging in the apertures
30 4, the plungers 2O serve to assure proper align
ment and registry of the superposed forms, which
are thus doubly engaged. The aligning and ar
resting plungers or‘studs l2 engage the apertures
4 of the second set of forms within the container:
85 or receptacle while the plungers 2| engage the
apertures 4 inv theterminal set of forms on top
or the writing tablet‘exteriorly of the container.
Various other adaptationsv oi’ ‘this inventive idea
may be employed ‘as for-example the studs l6,
40 illustrated in Fig. 2, may-.abe extended through
the clamp plate II with which they are relatively
?xed, and the protruding ends 2| of such' studs
beneath the plate I I are engageable through the
apertures 4 in ‘the ends of the record strips 2 and
45. thence through corresponding apertures 4b in the
lid or writing tablet I, as is illustrated in Fig. 10.
In Fig. 11 there is illustrated a‘ further varia
tion wherein the swinging plate li'carries spring
pressed yieldable studs 22. Such studs are si
50 multaneously engageable with corresponding ap
, ertures in two sets of forms to whichthe engag
' ing studs are common. The spring pressed studs

Upon increased pulling tension being applied to'
the strips, the detent and aligning plungers 24 30v
are automatically retracted against the tension
of the spring bar 21 to release the strips for fur
ther advancement until the apertures 4c of the
next succeeding set of forms are brought into
position for reception or the' plungers. ‘Upon re 35
versely folding the withdrawn portions of the
strips into writing position upon the cover or
writing tablet 2, the apertures 4vln the terminal
ends of the strips are engageable over the outer
ends of the plungers 24 for the purpose of holding
such ends in properly registering relation.
In Figs. 14 to 17 inclusive there is shown afur- ’
thermodi?cation of thepresentmanifoldingregis
ter or strip dispensing apparatus employing but a
single pair of detent plungers located interiorly
of the box or container for arresting, and aligning
the advancement of the strips.
.
In the manifolding register illustrated in Figs.
14 to 1'1 inclusive, the ends of the record strips
after being extended over the writing tablet are
passed through a slot therein to the under side
of the writing tablet where such terminal ,ends
22 not only engage the terminal portions of the
of the strips are engaged by the automatic detent
strips by projecting through the apertures 4

retarding the advancement of the strips and as
11 engaging in other apertures 4c in the succeed
ing set of forms, comprising the strips 2, interior
ly oi the box or receptacle. Thus the studs 22
are common to two succeeding sets of such print
ed formsand simultaneously engage therewith to
insure accurate alignment and registry. It will
be understood that the apertures 4c must be

The portions or the record strips withdrawn 65
from the supply packet within the container I
pass about the guide rod 9 and thence through
the exit openiiig II and are reversely folded col;
lectively with the interleaved sheets or transfer
material 5’ therebetween over the writing tablet 3‘
in the same manner as’ before described. The
writing. tablet 8 is provided witha transverse slot
28 adjacent to its free end through which the ex
tremities of the record strips 2 are passed to the
arranged in the ends of the forms opposite the
under side of the writing tablet and are with 65
drawn through an exit opening 23 in the end of
apertures 4.¢_That is to say, the forms usable with
the construction shown in Fig. 11 and also with
that shown in Figs. 12 and‘ 13, .must necessarily

versely disposed within the container l inter
be provided with like apertures at each end of
the forms.

In Figs. 12 and 13 there is shown a variation of
‘the construction illustrated vin 11g. 11, wherein
the duo-functional studs or plungers are located
interiorly or the box or receptacle. These ar
mediate the slot 24 and the exit opening 2! is a
transverse bridge bar Ill. quite similar to the 70
bridge bar I! over which the withdrawnportions
of Ithepstrips pass. This bridge bar v30 may be ?x
edly mounted in the box or container’ i, as illus
trated in Fig. 1, or it may be hinged to the under
side of the cover or writing tablet 4 as is shown 75

in Fig. 15. Carried by the bridge bar 30 is a pair
of detent plungers I2 projected into the path of
travel of the strips 2 by a spring bar l3 in the
opposite sides of the packet will be presented with
the reverse faces uppermost.
In lieu of the de
tent pins, metal balls subjected to spring pres
sure may be employed. The pins or balls as the
manner and for the purpose hereinbefore de
scribed. However,the present construction di?fers ‘ case may be. of which there is a set associated
from that formerly described in that whereas the
detent members interiorlyof thebox,as heretofore
mentioned, engage with the apertures of the sec
ond set of forms or strips, such plungers l2 in the
10 register illustrated in Figs. 14 to 17 engage the
apertures 4 in the extreme ends of the record
strips. The free end of the writing tablet 8 is
indented at 3| to enable the ends of the strips to
be grasped for withdrawal.
The initial pulling
15 tension upon the strips will serve to depress the
with each writing tablet, are spring pressed
against the lid or top of the register, and the I
forms are withdrawn between them and the lid.
When the ?le holes in the forms register with
the detents, they automatically engage therein 10
and temporarily arrest the advancement of the ‘
forms. The detents being beveled or rounded
are yieldingly cammed out of the holes by further
advancement of the strips under increased pulling
tension thereby permitting the next succeeding
plungers l2 out of engagement with the terminal
apertures 4 and the strips may be withdrawn over
the writing tablet and thence through the slot 28
to the under side thereof and through the exit 29
until the inscribed set of forms or slips is with-:
drawn from the register and the next succeeding
set of forms or slips is advanced into writing posi
tion and until the apertures 4 thereof are brought
into registry with the detent plungers l2 carried
set of forms to advance to writing position.
From the above description it will be apparent
that there is thus provided a device of the char
acter described possessing the particular features
of advantage before enumerated as desirable, but 20
which obviously is susceptible of modification in
its form, proportions, detail construction and
arrangement of parts Without departing from the
principle involved or sacrificing any of its advan
by the bridge bar 30, whereupon such plungers

While in order vto comply with the statute, the
invention has been described in language more
or less specific as to structural features, it is to,
be understood that the invention is not limited
to the speci?c features shown, but that the 30
means and construction herein'disclosed com
prise the preferred form of several modes of
putting the invention into effect, and the inven
porarily arrest the advancement of the strips in
registry with each other and by the increased re
sistance of the strips indicate to the operator that
30 a predetermined length of material has been with
drawn.
In the form of dispensing apparatus illustrated
in Figs. 14 to 1'7 inclusive, the lid or_ cover is
opened to extended position as shown in Fig. 15
35 preparatory to withdrawing the strips which
could not be pulled satisfactorily nor easily about
the edge of the cover or writing tablet when the
latter is closed.
In Figs. 18 and 19 there is shown a. further
modi?cation wherein aligning studs 32 project
through arcuate slots 33 in the writing tablet for
engagement in the apertures 4 in the free ends
of the record strips. These engaging studs 32
are carried upon interpivoted levers 34 on the
under side of the writing tablet, which levers have
their ends oppositely disposed to those carrying
the studs, and on the other side of the pivotal
mountings separated by a compression spring 35
and which tends to oscillate the levers about
=' their pivotal mounting to move the studs away
from each other. In engaging the free ends of
the strips over such studs 32, the studs are ?rst
manually drawn slightly together to facilitate
their entry into the terminal apertures 4 of ‘the
strips, after which the spring automatically
spreads the studs to place the strip under tension
and hold the pins tightly in engagement in the
apertures to prevent displacement of the strips
therefrom.
‘
tion is therefore claimed in any of its forms or
modi?cations within the legitimate and valid 35
scope of the appendedclaims.
Having thus described our invention, we claim:
