In the drawing, reference numeral l indicates
an elongated transverse strut member preferably
‘formed of tubular paper stock although other
materials may be used.
The strut has axially open ends 2 adapted to

‘at 4 adjacent each end, the cord being threaded
from the end openings 2 through radial aper
tures 4 and extending axially parallel to strut I
throughout the greater portion of its length.
The said axially extending portion is indicated
by the reference numeral 5, and the portion of
the cord between the end openings 2 and radial
apertures 4 by the reference numeral 6. The
portion 1 of the cord extending outside the strut l
55 throughout its entire length is of greater length
namely, by simply threading the portion l3
through the hollow strut l without using radial
apertures 4 or by omitting the same, the cord

this modi?ed form is employed, the assembly of
the cord and strut is simpli?ed in view of the
