A further object is the production of e holder which when seated on the index card will engage the top edge thereof and be properly aligned with the edge of the card and which engagement will eo also tend to provide a more secure and sensfeetory mounting of the strip. _ y The invention has as a further object the production of a strip holderwhieh is reenforced by rounding the top edge or_forming a. tubular heed 'thereat so as to stiiîen the holder and improve its durability and the utilization of the rounded over portion to form o, strong grip or clamp which wm securely retain the index strlpiln the holden' l Many other objects and advantages of the con.lo struction herein shown and described will be obvious to those skilled in the art from the disclosure herein given X DlOyed- l5 efficient manner and which will not in any wey .~ which is Preferably made of Celluloid or any equivalent transparent material vof suitable or preferred color.
