get out oi order.
With the above and other objects in View the
invention consists of certain novel details of con
struction and combinations of partshereinafter
fully described and claimed, it being understood
that various modiñcations may be resorted to

on the line 4_4 of Figure 3.
Figure 5 is a rear elevation of a modiñed form
of panel.
Referring now to the drawing in which like
characters of reference designate similar parts in
the various Views, the easel is shown to comprise
a frame including side members I@ and longitudi
nal members Il. The frame is supported at the
ends by feet I2.
A panel I3 or" laminated wood or other material
is ñtted at the edges into a rabbet I4 formed on
