Referring now >to the drawing, in Fig. 1` there
,35 is shown a portion of a javelin including the
usual wooden handle 5, a tapered steel ferrule 6,
and our improved shaft point 1. -The ferrule 6
has a plunger 8 therein, which is rtapered to fit
smoothly inside the ferrule and which is large
40 enough to prevent its passing out the small end
of the ferrule. This plunger is not secured in the
» ferrule and may be forced toward‘the large end
of the ferrule by pressure applied at the small
vcient width to enable the plunger action to take
-place evenly and in perfect alignment. By in
serting weights such as lead washers or shot- in the
space I1, the weight and balance of the javelin 25
may be adjusted, should necessity arise. The
pointv III may be made-of any suitable material.
It isnot necessary that it bevrubber or'even.’

resilient nature of the point construction, there
is little danger of the point being broken or bent
The plunger 8 carries a screw threaded member

In the form -ofthe invention shown in Fig. 4,
the point of the javelin is of a more permanent
construction, in that the ferrule 6 has the plung
er 8 permanently fixed therein by a plurality of 1
rivets I4, and instead of using a series of rubber~
washers around the member 9, we may use a mul-.
tiplicity of `fiberl washers I5. The rubber tip ’ I0
hasthe screw threaded metal sleeve I I, the same
as in the ñrst form. This form of the invention
does not have the same degree of yield under '
shock that the plunger type has, since the pri--`
mary yield in this case must come from the
rubber tip I0. In order to take up any uneven-v
ness, a brass bushing I6 may be inserted betweenv »
the plunger body 8 and the ferrule.
The present invention is capable of being ap- «

the member 9. Interposed betweenfthe tip I0
and the plunger 8 are a plurality of resilient
washers I2 which may be constructed of any
suitable material, such as rubber, and a protec
tive member I3 that is hard enough to protect
the resilient washers from the adjacent edge

material of the plunger 8 in both forms prefer
ably should be light, such as for example, alumi
