PHNOGRAPHIC TABLET.

i Specification of Letters Patent.

Application led August 6, 1919. Serial No. 315,632.

To all whom it may concern.'

Be it known that l, VICTOR H. EMERSON, a citizen of the United States, residing in the city, county, and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Phonographic Tablets, of which the following is a specification. t

yMy invention relates to improvements in phonographic tablets, particularly tablets having a special shape and capable of repro flucing sounds of special character.

An aim of my invention is to provide a tablet made in imitation of the appearance of a well known animate or inanimate ob ject, and comprising a phonographic record that can reproduce sounds which the hearer generally associates with that object. F or example, if the `tablet represents a living creature, the record will be adapted to reproduce sounds characteristic of that crea-- ture or pertaining toit, or appropriate in some other way. Hence, the tablet can be used for purposes both of entertainment and instruction; especially when the `record is played in the presence of young persons.

@ther advantages of my invention will be fully set lforth in the following description, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, which form a part of same; and

the novel features of my idea will be pre'- cisely defined in the appended claims. rThis disclosure however is explanatory only; and l reserve the right to utilize embodiments of my invention in addition towhat lf actually show, within the scope and spirit of my invention, to the full'extent ,indicated and by the general meanings of the terms in which the claims are expressed.

On the drawings,

Figure l is a plan view of a phonographic tablet made in accordance with my inven` tion, and

Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section through hi Y l.

lhe same reference characters identify the same parts throughout.

The tablet is shown at l. lt may be for the most part of card board, or any other suitable substance; and it embraces a member 2, affixed preferably in central position, as by means of an eyelet rivet 3. This rivet .not only secures the member 2 in place, but

also furnishes the central aperture which enables the tablet to be applied to the central stud or projection of the turn-table of a talk ing machine. It will be understood that the member 2 can be of any material suitable for inscribing the grooves of the record that en- `gages the needle of the sound boX of the talking machine; and such grooves are indicated by the numeral 4 As shown in Fig. 1, the tablet has the general appearance of a bird, such as a parrot; sitting upon a perch 5. The head of the parrot is shown at 6 on one side of the mem'- ber 2; and the tail 7 on the opposite side; while the member 2 is secured over rto the body of the bird. lf give the tablet the general shape or Aoutline of a parrot occupying the position indicated and mark upon the surface, by painting, printing or otherwise, in suitable colors, the features 4and other physical traits of the creature to give it a natural and life-like appearance. A large part of the surface is covered by the record 4; or, more properly speaking, by the member 2 which carries said record. lin practice the sound grooves 4 will of course be capable of reproducing the call of the bird, or in some cases the song or chirp of the same.

ln its finished form, the tablet will be very attractive in appearance; and will be capable of use for purpose of amusement, entertainment or instruction. I can of course make the tablet in imitation of birds that are known for the sweetness of their songs, as well as birds which are unableto emit anything but harsher cries; and lf can likewise use the tablet to reproduce both the notes of song birds and the sounds of birds which, though not classed as song birds, are gifted with distinctive and interesting cries; for the benefit of persons wishing to hear such sounds for educational and other purposes.

ll can further make the tablet in imitation of the appearance of animals other than birds and inscribe thereon a record that will be appropriate in each case. l can even make the tablet to represent an inanimateobject and cause the phonograph record to `reproduce sounds which are in some way connected with or descriptive of same.

Having described my lnvention, what lf ratenteu ee. ra, roei.
