ARTHUR G. PALMER, OF HASTINGS-UPCN-HUDSON, NEW YORK.

FAVOR AND SNAPPING I/IOTTO.

Application filed May 22, 1920. Serial No. 383,583.

To all/whom it may concern Be it .known that I, ARTHUR G. PALMER, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at Hastings-upon-Hudson, Wesa chester County, State of New York, have invented new and useful Improvements in Favors and Snapping Mottoes, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to favors used. at dinners and on other occasions and has special reference to that class of favors which are pulled apart by grasping their ends. The pulling apart of the favors as described usually has the effect of producing a motto or a snapping or explosive noise.

The present invention contemplates manipulation of a favor in the manner as indicated but the device is so constructed and arranged that such manipulation will cause an object, which may vary greatly in character and significance, to unexpectedly appear whereby the pleasure derived from the favor is greatly increased.

Other and ancillary objects of the invention will appear hereinafter.

In the accompanying dravv'ings which illustrate the invention;

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a structure embodying the invention;

Fig. 2 is a longitudinal, central section;

Fig. 3 is a section on the line 33 of Fig. 2;

Fig. 4 is a section on the line 4-4- of Fig. 2 but modified as will hereinafter appear; and with certain parts omitted.

Fig. 5 is a central. longitudinal section of one end of a modified structure with the outer covering removed; and

Figs. 6 to 13 inclusive show the blank parts from which the device is made as will hereinafter more fully appear.

Referring to the drawings, the apparatus comprises a cylindrical body portion 1 formed by taking a sheet of stiff paper or cardboard ,as shown in Fig. 6, and rolling it into the form of a cylinder. In the sheet 1 are formed two holes 2 and 3 by cutting away a rectangular section of the material exceptv at an edge so that the tongues 4 and 5 maybe moved out of the plane of the sheet to form the holes and in the completed device may be bent down and gummed to the sheet 1, leaving the holes Qand 3 open and .reinforcingthe bottom of the cylinderwhen isattached. The sheet as thus conthen rolled into the form of a middle as above referred form. The triangular flaps 9 are turned inwardly around the edges of-the hole 6 and gummed to the interior of the body 1. This prevents the presentation of any raw edges of the thin paper at the margin of the hole so that danger of tearing of this thinner enclosing paper is avoided.

In the side of the cylindrical body 1 0p posite the hole 6 is secured by gumming or otherwise, a strip of pasteboard 1O furnishing the base upon which devices upon the interior ofthe body may be mounted. The blank constituting this strip is shown in plan in Fig. 7 having slits 11 for a purpose as will be hereinafter referred to. At each end of the cylindrical body 1 is arranged a snapping device. That at one end comprises the strip 12 of p asteboard having its ends overlapping the pasteboard strip 13 which is secured by gluing or otherwise to the strip '10. The overla 'a-ping ends of the strips 12 and 13 are provided with a snapping composition, or explosive which is adapted to be set off when the members 12 and 13 are drawn apart by pulling upon the member 12, these overlapping ends being covered with a wrapping 14 as shown. The structure and treatment'of the overlapping ends with a snapping compound or explosive so that the snap or explosion occurs upon the drawing apart of the members, is well understood in the art and need not be described further here.

At the other end of the body a similar arrangement is provided comprising the pasteboardstrip 15 secured to the strip 10, the explosive ,or snapper at 16 and the other member 17 havingits en'd overlapping that of the strip 15 as previouslydescribed in connection witha similar, device'at the other end of the body.

Fig. 9 shows a structure which maybe employed at each end of the favor 8fco mprising twostrips with the'snapper in the spring device Comprising a flat, steel spring 18 and'the weight 19 at one end, has the end opposite the weight inserted through the slots 11 in the strip and then has'its Weighted and free end bent into the posi tion as shown in Fig. 2. A loop of paper '20 is passed over the spring and is secured by guniming or otherwise to the strip 10 and gecured to the weighted end of the spring acts to h old the weighted end of the spring in retracted position as shown. The blank forming this strip of paper is shown in may be any desired figure such as the convent onal illustration of Unclebam as indic ate d, a flag, or other desired miniature figure or emblem, or if a gift more substanwire is looped about the paper strip so that as. the members 12 and 17 are drawn apart the paper band 20 is severed and the end of. the spring held thereby released. The result is that the figure, emblem or other article carried by the spring is caused to move quickly through the opening 6 and be eX- posed at the side of the cylinder.

In manufacturing this device. after the spring-18has been inserted inthe slots 11 of the strip 10, the figure or gift is secured to the spring 18 .whichis bent into retracted position and secured by the paper strip 20 which passes over the spring and has its ends glued to the strip 10. Thesnapping devices as shown in Fig. 9 are then glued to the strip .10, as shown in Fig. 2 and the wire 21 is looped about the paper strip 20 and has its ends wrapped about the snapper members 12 and 17 as shown in Fig. 2. The article thus assembled may be inserted endwise into the Cylinder and secured in position by gumming or gluing the strip 10 to the cylinder 1. The

crape paper being then applied. the article willf-becomplete. p

With the parts arranged as shown in Fig. 2. a sheet of colored crape paper may be .wrapped about the cylinder and project'beyond its ends'to a considerable extent. An-

--,o,ther'sheet of crape paperof a different color may be then wrapped about the first and still.

another sheet of'paper of a different color may be wrapped about the last. The paper may then be gathered at, the ends of-thecyL inder by tying strings or ribbons as 22 about kthea-crapezpaper which extends beyond the lends 'of the cylinder l so as to close the end of the-cylinder. 'T'Tha-l'i portion of the crape paper extending beyond thepoint where it is tied may be slitted to form tassle-like struc-.

tureslas 23 and 2 1- and. where the layers of crape paper are of difierent colors as described these tassles will be composed of strips of different colors so as to givea very pleasing appearance. Thus, the-device may have three layers ofjcrape'pa-per, the layers being of-red, white and blue respectively.

The tassles will then be composed of red,

white and blue filaments or strips. Where 1 the crape paper overlies the opening 6 it may be slit or shredded so that the spring and its carried parts may easily force its way'therei through and where'the layers of crapepaper are off different colors as described the interming'ling of the shreds willforma pleasing ornamentation and back ground for apicture or appropriate decoration upon the side ofthe favor. i 1

' The members 12 and'17 extend out into the if) I tassles 2 3 and 2 1-.so that upon grasping the tassles and ends 12 and 17 and pulling them in opposite directions along theaXis of the device. the release of the springand operation of the snappers or explosiyes as before referred to will be effected. i Y

It will now appear that with the [device constructed as described if the -t'assels" and ends 12 and 13 at the ends of the device are grasped and pulled in opposite directions,

the members 12 and 13 willbeseparatedioperating'the snapper 14; and thejmembers 15 and 17 will be separated operating; the

snapper 16, while the separation of the inembe severed, thereby releasingthe steel spring, the free and weighted end of which will fly upwardly bringing); whateyer'is carried by t (in this case the conventional figure of Uncle Sam) into a position substantially at right angles'to the cylinder as indicated by the dotted lines in F1gs. 2 and 3. In some instances it may be desired-to here 12 and 17 I will cause the paper loop 20 to place a covering or lid over the opening 6 in which case a blank as shown in Fig. 10 may.

be employed. This blank comprises a relatively stiff piece 25 of paper or s1m1larniaterial. the stiffness and thickness of which may be substantially that of the material of the cylinder l and toy this piece 25 may" be gummed a separate piece of thinner paper 26 toforin a hinge. The lid may then be 5e-v cured to the cylinder so as {to cover the openint: 6 when. closed, by cumming the; free edge of the'paper 26 to the side of the cylinder-as shown in Fig. 41. Normally the lid would be closed as shown but would be thrown open by the flying of the spring and its figure into vertical position as before. referred to the,

cylinder with the lid is covered withfthc colored crepe paper as before described. c It may enhance (the amusement der ved from the device to placea whistle or similar device within the. cylinder 1' and to this end.

blank as shown in Fig 13 y e. r.. ctlf.v

about an axis when t will 1 one-"" shaped member as shown at 27 in Fig. 5. In the smaller end of this member may be placed a whistle 28 which will be sounded if one blows in the end of the cylinder. A combination favor and musical toy is thus formed.
