- MEMORANDUM DEVICE Filed March 28, 1928 I Q 7 a 4 F- WWW HACARom MATCHES Patented Oct. 1, 1929 PATENT. OFFICE WILLIAM F. VERNON, OF NEWTON, IOWA MEMORANDUM nnvrcn Application filed March 28, 1928. Serial No. 265,458.

This invention provides a memorandum device especially designed for household use to facilitate the listing of needs and the jotting down of items for future reference.

The invention contemplates a device including a stiff back, a stout base having a dark surface coated with paraflin, or other nonharde'ning adhesive, an opaque light colored tissue, spaced strips at the marginal edges of the device, and a transparent covering of thin flexible material having its surface glazed to prevent marking thereon with a lead pencil, the marginal strips bearing a list ofLhousehold necessities which may be checked in the space therebetween, and said space being adapted to receive memoranda of any nature.

\Vhile the drawing illustrates a preferred embodiment of the invention it is to be understood that in adapting the means to meet specific needs and requirements, the design may be varied and-such other changes in the minor details of construction may be resorted to within the scope of the invention as claimed, without departing from the spirit thereof. Y

For a full understanding of the invention and the merits thereof, reference is to be had to the following description and the drawing hereto attached, in Which,-

Figure 1 is a plan view of'a memorandum device embodying the invention, parts being broken away to show more clearly the relation of the different sheets.

Figure 2 is a longitudinal sectional view on the line 2-2 of Figure 1.

Figure 3 is an enlarged fragmentary sectional view.

Figure 4 is a transverse sectional view on the line 4-4 of Figure 1, looking in the direction of the arrows.

Corresponding and like parts are referred to in the following description and designated in the several views of the drawing by like reference characters.

The numeral 1 denotes the back of the device, 2 the base, 3 an opaque light colored tissue, 4 strips at the sides or marginal ed of the device and adapted to receive a list of-household necessities and 5 a covering of 0 thin transparent material, having a glazed .ceive advertising matter besides serving to secured adjacent their lower ends, as indisurface and sufficiently flexible to yield under the point of a stylus to admit of writing appearing on the opaque tissue. A stub sheet 6 at the top of the device and intermediate the covering 5 and tissue 3 is adapted to rereinforee and stiffen the device adjacent the top. The several. sheets are bound together by means of staples 7. These sheets may be cated at 8. A band 9 is slidably mounted upon the base 2 and is of a length to project slightly beyond the sides of the device to be gripped between .the thumb and finger of the human hand when moving the band over the base 2 to strip or detach the tissue 3 therefrom and eil'acc the writing. The band 9 usually consists of a strip of stoutpaper extending across the base 2 and having its end portion bent to occupy a position against the rear side thereof.

Loss of the band 9 is prevented by having the several sheets bound adjacent the top and bottom of the device.

The base 2 consists of card board and its 7,

surface is black, or dark, and covered with a coating of paraflin, or other non-hardening adhesive to cause the tissue 3 to stick thereto under the pressure of a stylus, with the result that the writing will show through the tissue and appear to bewriting thereon, but which disappears when the tissue 3 is separated from the base. The band 9 provides convenient means for stripping or separating the tissues 3 from the base. However, the same 5 result may be effected by omitting the lower fastening means 8 and movin the tissue away from the base, as will be readily appreciated.

The stri s e are adapted to receive a printed list of iousehold necessities, thereby e11 9a abling the articles wanted to be indicated by check marks, as indicated in Figure 1 of the drawings. The space provided between the list bearing strips t may be utilized to receive memoranda of any nature. The covering 5 as usually consists of a thin sheet of celluloid or analogous material, the surface of which is glazed so as, not to show any mark when passing the point of -a lead pencil thercover in the act of cheeking'thc articles desired and 1 the tracing of the memoranda to appear on the tissue 3, and which is subsequently effaced by manipulating the band 9 or moving the tissue 3 away from the base 2 in any deter- 5 minate Way.

Having thus described the invention, I claim:

1. A memorandum device comprising a back, a base thereon presenting a dark surface coated with parafiin, a light colored opaque tissue placed against the outer side of the base, strips along the sides of the tissue and bearing a list of needed articles, a stub sheet at the top of the device and a thin is transparent covering of flexible material having its outer surface glazed, the several sheets being bound adjacent opposite ends, and a band slidable on and embracing the base and projecting slightly at its ends bei yond the sides of the device.

2. A memorandum device comprising a base presenting a dark surface covered with paraffin, or other non-hardening adhesive, a tissue in contact with the front of the base,

memorandum strips covering and reinforcing edge portions of the tissue, and a covering of thin transparent material having an outer glazed surface extending over the tissue and the strips at the sides thereof.

In testimony whereof I affix my si 'nature.

WILLIAM F. VERhoN.
