JACOB SCHUL'IHESS, OI SALT LAKE CITY, UT

COPY-GUIDE.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, JACOB SCHULTHESS, a citizen of the United States, residing at Salt Lake City in the county of Salt Lake and 5 State of liltah, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Copy-Guides,

of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawings.

This invention relates to an improved copy guide and an object of the invention is to provide a device of this kind particularly designed for use by typists, aiding materially in copying typewriting or other printed matter line for line, with accuracy and also to prevent extra strain on the eyes.

A further object of the invention is to provide a guide having means, whereby only one line at a time is visible, there being a O graduated scale on the guide, to insure proper spacing, or position of the words of the line, corresponding to the scale on the typewriter, thereby avoiding counting, guessing or calculating mentally on the 5 necessary spacing, whereby an accurate copy may be produced.

A further object of the invention is to provide a guide of this kind comprising a pair of strips, securely fastened together at guide, the upper strip being longitudinally slotted, the lower edge of the slot having a conventional form of typewriter scale to indicate the proper spacing of the words of the line which appears through the slot, the sheet of copy being arranged between the two strips.

A further object of the invention is the provision of a device of this kind which may be employed as an advertising novelty.

8 The design of the invention as now illustrated is deemed preferable. However, in reducing the same to a practical form for commercial purposes alterations may be found necessary, and the right to these altera- 5 tions is claimed, provided they are comprehended by what is claimed.

The invention comprises further features and combination of parts, as hereinafter set forth, shown in the drawingsi and claimed.

In the drawings:'

separated, to show how the sheetlof copy ma be placed between the parts.

1g. 3 is a longitudinal sectional view on line 3-3 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 4 is a transverse sectional view on line H of Fig. 1, clearlyshowing the fastenmg means.

. Referring to the drawings, 1 designates a. base strip, which may be constructed of any suitable material, preferably cardboard, celluloid or the like and 2 designates an upper strip which may likewise be constructed of similar material.

These two strips at one end of the guide are fastened together by a conventional form of clamps 3, the arms of the clamps being clenched as shown at 4:. The upper strip 2 has an elongated slot 5, and adjacent the lower edge of the slot on the upper face of the strip 2 a graduated scale 6 is supplied. This scale 6 has its graduations correspondmg to those used on typewriters. It is obvious that by placing the typewritten or printed copy between the two strips, whereby each line one at a time is visible through the slot 5, the line may be easily copied without being confused with any of the other lines, and the words of the line may be properly spaced with accuracy, without'relying upon counting, guessing or calculating mentally, where the words should be positioned in making the copy. It is further obvious that adjacent where the two strips are fastened together, a slight frictional clamping action is afforded on the page of copy, so as to prevent slipping of the guide.

Furthermore, the device being constructed of flexible material, it can readily be at tached to a leaf in a book or to a loose sheet, and move up or down the page, showing one or two lines at a time of the matter which it is desired to copy, while covering up enough of the remaining lines on either side to eliminate the danger of skipping from one line to another, which frequently happens where similar words occur near each other on adjoining lines.

By closing a book with the guide in place, it serves as a bookmark and indicates not only the page, but the particular place to which reference is desired.

In writing financial statements or statistical-reports, the scale on the guide will show the proper spacing between columns, thus effecting a great saving of time by making Patented Sept. 21, 1920. Application filed March 5, 1919.' Serial No..280,785. v I

it unnecessary to count the number of figures in a column or the spaces between columns in order to make them uniform. a When copying from other typewritten matter, the scale on the guide will enable the copyist to determine the proper spacing, showing the point at which any figure or letter should be written in order to make it uniform with the balance of the figures.

It will indicate the point at which to begin headings in order to bring lines of unequal length in the proper space, so that the center of each line will be exactly in line with that of the preceding ones.

It is of particular value in copying horizontal or vertical columns of figures, by showing a column or part of a column, shutting off from view, for the time being, the remaining figures.

The guide may be inserted from either end, and used in copying from either the left hand or right hand side of a book or sheet.

The invention having been set forth, what is claimed as new and useful is:

' A copy guide comprising base and top strips of light pliable cardboard material of lengths greater relatively than the width of legal-cap paper, the top strip of thin pliable cardboard material having an elongated slot of a length greater relatively than the maximum typewritten line and being of a height greater relatively to the height of a single typewritten line, whereby but a single typewritten line is visible through the slot as the guide is adjusted down the page, the upper face of the top strip of cardboard adjacent the lower edge of the slot having a scale of I graduations for indicating the proper spacing of words on the line, and detachable means clenchingly penetrating the top and base strips for clamping the two strips at one end of the guide, whereby the adjacent faces of the strips, particularly adjacent the clenching means, may grip the page with friction greater relatively than the weight of the free unattached ends of the two strips, whereby the guide may remain placed relatively to the page.

In testimony whereof I hereunto afiix my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
