JAMES L. MOCLUSKEY, OF PITTSBURG, KANSAS.

CALL FOR DUCKS.

11.,ttet2h123.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, JAMES L. N[(JCLUSKEY,.

a citizen of United States, residing at Pittsburg, in the county of Crawford and State of Kansas, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Calls for Ducks, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to a device for calling birds, and particularly to a duck call, which is capable of closely imitating the sounds made by ducks.

An import-ant object of this invention is to provide a device of the above character, which is formed of readily separable parts, whereby said device-may be easily cleansed or repaired when necessary.

A further object of this invention is to provide a duck call embodying means whereby certain parts may be adjusted to alter the tone of the sounds produced by said duck call. a

The final object of this invention is to provide a duck call, which is simple in construction, efficient in operation, and cheap to manufacture.

In the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification, and in which like numerals are employed to designate like parts throughout the same- Figure 1 is a side view ofthe device. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional view taken on line 2-2 of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a cross sectional view taken on line 33 of Fig. 2. Fig. 1 is a bottom plan view of one of the twin members of the device. Fig. 5 is a side elevation of the reed. Fig. 6 is an end view of the clamping ring.

In the drawings, wherein is illustrated a preferred embodiment of my invention, the numeral 1 designates the body portion of the device, which is formed of twin members 2. Each of these twin members is approximately semi-cylindrical and is provided with an inner flat face 3, which is beveled longitudinally of the member 2, as shown. Each of the members 2 is provided upon its inner face 3 with a longitudinally arranged emi-cylindrical groove 4, extending through the outer end 5 and terminating at a point 6, spaced from the inner end 7 of said member. The flat faces 3 are beveled longitudinally of the members 2, such beveling being a little more pronounced near the inner ends 7, as shown at 8. The faces 3 are not beveled beyond a flange 13, to be described. As shown in Fig. 1, the faces 3 are spaced Specification of Letters Patent.

from each other beyond the flange 18, the distance therebetween increasing toward the inner ends 7. The members 2 are to be formed of any suitably flexible material such as wood. A flat thin reed 11 is disposed between the members 2 and is of a cor responding size to said members. As illustrated in Fig. 2, the outer end of the reed 11 is flush with the outer ends of the members 2 while the inner reduced end 17 terminates preferably at a point spaced from the inner ends 7.

Each of the members 2 is provided near its outer end with a flange 13, which forms a shoulder 14:, as shown. Upon the outer ends of the members 2 is arranged a cylindrical horn 15, having its inner end in on gagement with the shoulders 14. It is to be understood that this horn fits sufiiciently snug upon the outer ends of members 2, to prevent accidental displacement therefrom, while the horn may be readily removed when desired. The horn serves to hold the outer end portions of the members 2 in firm engagement with each other, since the corresponding portions of the faces 3 are not beveled, as above stated. Arranged upon the members 2 is a clamping ring 16, which may be moved longitudinally of these members. The clamping ring has its free ends 17 bent outwardly, as shown. These ends 17 are provided with suitable openings formed therethrough for receiving a screw 18, whereby the clamping ring may be reduced in size. In Fig. 1 the members 2 are shown as being spaced from each other and not provided with the clamping ring 16. In Fig. 2 this clamping ring is applied and the members 2 brought close together whereby the reed is held by the faces 3 at a point adj acent the clamping ring.

From the construction of the above referred to parts, it is obvious that by moving the ring 16 longitudinally of the members 2 and tightening screw 18, the reed 11 will be held by the faces 8 in adjustment at a point adjacent the clamping ring 16. The length of vibration of the reed 11 will thus be varied and the tone of the sound given out altered. This feature of the invention is very important, as the instrument may be employed to call old ducks and young ducks.

In assembling the various parts of the de vice, the reed 11 is placed between the flat faces 3 of the members 2, and the horn 15 arranged upon the outer ends of these members. The clamping ring 16 is then placed upon the members 2 and adjusted by actuating screw 18. The operator may then place the inner ends of the members 2 between his lips, and by blowing through the opening 9, cause the reed 11 to vibrate. This vibration of the reed 11, will produce a sound very closely resembling that of the call of a duck. The tone of this sound may be altered as above described by proper manipulation of the clamping ring 16.

I have found that the best results are obtained by forming the members 2, and the horn 15 out of wood, while the reed 11 may preferably be formed of a thin section of metal, such as brass. It is to be understood, however, that I do not restrict myself to the employment of the above named materials alone, as any other suitable material may be used when desired.

I Iaving fully described my invention, I

claim having fiat inner adjacent faces which are enlarged end portions and limited. in move- I ment in one direction by engagement with said flanges, a flat reed disposed between the body members, a split ring longitudinally adjustably mounted upon the body me1nbers, tial size of the ring.

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
