wardly therefrom and inserting the end portions into the
absorbent material again. This adjustment is done while
the clip 31 and absorbent material are out of the head 7.
The absorbent material is always substantially rigid rela
tive to the head 7 since the base portion 33 of the clip
member 31 is always in engagement with the closed end
16 of the head 7 and a portion of the sides 35 and 37
are adjacent side 13 of head 7. As will be apparent,
substantially all of the absorbent material 27 can be
utilized and the pen can be constructed so that a relatively
long piece of material 27 is used, thus making the pen
means usable over a relatively long period of time.
The head and handle portions of the pen of the in
