FLAGPOLE.

APPLICATION FILED APR.5,1919.

1,383,234. Patented June 28, 1921.

[raven/or lum'rlal) s'm'rlfi-is ERNEST H.. RAG-USE, OF SUMMIT, ILLINOIS.

FLAGPOLE.

l Application iuled April 5, 1919. Serial No. 287,783.

To all 'whom t may conce/m.'

Be it known that I, ERNEST H. RAGUSE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Summit, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have' invented certain new and useful Improvements in Flagpoles; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make'and use the same.

This .invention relates to flag poles and the primary object of the invention is to provide an improved flag pole especially adapted for supporting service ags, and so constructed that the flag can be readily raised and lowered. l

Another object of the invention is to provide an improved flag pole, in which the flag is so mounted thereon as to serve the purpose of a wind vane.

A further object of the invention is to provide a Hag pole'which is so constructed that the flag can be raised to a point`abovel the hoisting pulley and allowed to rotate free in a horizontal plane, so as to act as a wind vane. A still further object of the invention is to provide an improved metallic flag ole of the above character, which is eXtreme y simple and durable in construction, one which can be manufactured and placed upon the market at a low cost; Y.

With these and other objects in View, the invention consistsin the novel construction, arrangement and formation of parts, as will be hereinafter more specifically described, claimed and illustrated lin the accompany-y ing drawings, forming a part thereof, in which- Figure 1 is a perspective view ofthe ag ole, and A Fig. 2 isa vertical section through the same. l, y

Referring to the drawings in detail, wherein similar reference characters desi nate corresponding parts throughout t e several views, the numeral 1 generally indicates the improved flag pole which is adapted to be constructed of a plurality of tubular sections 2 which are threadedly 'connected together, as at 4. The 'sections 2 are provided with ,inclined apertures 3 in which may be inserted a suitable peg so as to permit the pole to be readily climbed when so desired. A

Specification of Letters Patent.

The upper end of the pole has secured thereto some'suitable emblem of the Army Patented June 2s, 1921.

collars or bearing .members 6 and 7 which have their terminals gradually tapered as aty 8 so as to permit the sleeves 9 and 10 to read- "ily slide on the same when the sleeves are being raised. The bearing members or collars- 6 and 7 form means whereby the sleeves may readily rotate around the pole. The upper collar 7 has the upper surface thereof substantially Hat and provided withan annular shoulder 11, which limits the upward movement of the sleeves 9 and 10. The sleeves 9 and 10 are connectedl together in such a manner, that the upper sleeve 9 may readily rotate without turningthe lower collar, and the lower collar is provided with an annular groove 12, which receives al plurality of ball bearings 13 and the upper sleeve 9 is. providediwith a downwardly. extending annular rib 14:l which is received in the groove 12 and bears against thev bearings 13. 'The upper sleeve 9 carries the rods 15 and 16 which e'xtendoutwardly from opposite sides of the upper sleeve 9 and these rods are formed so as to represent an arrow and the rods 1,5 and 16 are' provided respectively with an arrowy head1? and feather 18. The rod 16 supports the flag 19 which, as shown, is the ordinary service flag, but it is to be understood that any suitable flag can be hung that may be desired. The arm 16 and the sleeve 9 are provided with a plurality of snap hooks 20, and the same are ladapted tobe received in eyes 21 formed in the edges of the service lHag so as toei'ectively hold the same in positlon. A pulley wheel 21 is journaled in the uppermost section of the flag pole adjal lar 10. The opposite end of the cable is Wound around a suitable drum 23, which is mounted in brackets 24 secured to the lowermost section of the pole. The drum is readily rotated by means of the ordinary hand crank 25. ldy this construction it can. be seen that the sleeves can Be readily raised and lowered so that the lagmay be readily'placed in position and at the same time j permit the upper sleeve to readily rotate so l as to act in ordinary weather as a wind vane. This construction also permits of the flag to be raised above the pulley 21, so that the fiag can be raised to the eXtreme height of the flag pole.

The upper end of the pole is provided with right. angularly disposed arms 26 which support the incandescent lamps 27, so as to effectively illuminate thef upper end of the flag pole. These arms, if so desired, can be arranged so as to represent the points of a compass. so as to effectively show which direction the wind is blowing.

Suitable 4electric wires 28 are extended through the hollow pole to the lamps 27 and the wires '28 are connected to any suitable electrical source 29,'and the circuit is controlled by a switch 30, set in the lowermost section of the fiag pole.

From the foregoing description, it can be seen that an improved flag pole is provided which is specially adapted for supporting service 'flags and the like in which the flag is so mounted, that the same may be readily raised and lowered and at the same time permitted to rotate in a horizontal plane.

In practice, I have found that the form of my invention `illustrated in the accompanying drawings and referred to in the above description, as' the preferred embodiment, is the most efiicient and practical; yet realizing the conditions concurrent with the adoption of my device will necessarily vary, I desire to emphasize that various minor changes in details of construction, proportion andarrangement of parts may be resorted to, when required without sacrificing any of the -advantages of my'inventon as set forth.

AWhat I claim as new'is:

1. In a device of the class described, a flag pole, bearing members thereon, sleeves slidably mounted on the pole, one of the sleeves being rotatable with reference to the other, means for raising and lowering the sleeves into and out of engagement with the bearing members, and an object displayed by one of the sleeves. A

2. In a device of the class described, a flag pole, bearing members thereon, a two# part sleeve slidably mounted on the pole, means for raising and lowering the sleeve, means for mounting one element of the sleeve for independent rotation about the other, arms carried by the uppermost element of the sleeve, and a flag secured to one of the arms, as and for the'purpose specified.

3. A device of the class described having a pole with an abutment thereon', a lsleeve slidable and rotatable on the pole to display an object, a second sleeve on which the first sleeve' rotates, and means operable to maintain the second sleeve in contact with the first sleeve to urge-it toward the abutment.

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

ERNEST H. RAGUSE.
