It will still further be observed that the present invention
provides a combined clip-board and marking apparatus in
which the plurality of containers for marking ?uid of
different colors are mounted in upright position in holders

This invention will be useful in routing packages. For
example, a dispatcher may mark all packages in a ware
house that are to be routed to a certain locality with one
color and may mark the bill of lading with the same color.
This will enable the carrier immediately to recognize the
packages and identify them with the appropriate bili of
While a single embodiment of the invention is herein
illustrated and described, it will be understood that
changes may be made in the constmction and arrange
ment of elements without departing from the spirit or
scope of the invention. Therefore, without limitation in
this respect the invention is de?ned by the following
_ 1. A portable, one-hand-held marking set comprising
a plurality of felt nib type marking devices, all identical
in construction, but each containing a different color ink,
each pen comprising a relatively short, cylindrically
shaped ink storing container of a relatively wide diam
eter so as to be short and squat in shape and a cylin
drically shaped, elongated, tubular neck secured to, and
opening into, one end of the container and being co-iaxial
therewith, and through which the nib extends; a cap for 50
the neck in the form of an elongated cylinder, longer in
length than the neck, having one open end for ?tting
which is greater than the frictional force which holds
each cap upon its marked device neck, whereby the
marking devices may each be secured to the member by
being frictionally locked within a socket consisting of its
respective cap which is frictionally locked within a hole,
with the marking devices being substantially vertically
arranged and inverted relative to the flat face, and being
removable, for use, from their respective sockets by a
manually applied force, and the caps being removable
from the member by a manually applied force which is
considerably greater than the ?rst mentioned manually
applied force, for replacing the respective marking device
and its cap; and both forces being considerably greater
than the force of gravity so that the member may be
carried in any plane without the marking devices falling
out of their respective sockets and off the member.
2. A construction according to claim 1 wherein the
member has a longitudinally extending groove centered
along one edge, and including a clip board thinner than
the member and having a clip at one end, with one edge
of the clip board being friction ?tted in the groove of
the member whereby the member forms a one hand
holder for the clip board upon which a user may write
with his other hand with a marking device selected from
the plurality mounted in the member, each of two paral
lel edges of the clip board being dimensioned to ?t fric
tionally in the member groove as desired.
