The longitudinal strip of the blank lying between the line 33 connecting the inner ends of the slits 19, and the line 34 connecting the angles 13` and the .inner ends of the notches 21 and 22 will form the periphery of the frame 11 when the sections of the folded blank are formed into a-rectangle. The folded blank has the side containing the openings 12 and the notches 21 and 22 provided with a bead 35, the slits 18 and 18 coming at the inner ed e of the bead;` Y

The b ank doubled as shown in` FU. 7 is bent at the placesor portionsy 20 to orm a rectangular figure or frame thetwo sides about the ang e 13 of each opening 20. come `together to form mitrej joints 36,. while the 'corresponding sides of the notches 21 and`22 come t ther to form the .mitre joints 36a.

The tongue 37 at lthe left handend of the blank passes through the s lit18. Y

The rectangular wire fabric 32 has itsedges between thelopposed folded members' of 'each side of thel frame.' It will be noted thatthe sides of the frame have the intermediate portion bowed outwardly initially as shown in Fig; 5.

I claim:

' 1. In a window screen, two rectangular frames slidably connected together, and wire fabric secured to the frames and tongues integral with the opposite ends of the screens, the free endsof the tongues formed' into hinge members.

2. In a window screen, two rectangular frames slidably connectedj together, and wire fabric secured to the frames and tongues integral with the opposite ends of thescreens,

the free ends of the tongues formed in-toA hinge members, and the tongues having openings for a fastening means.v

3. In a: window screen', two` rectangular frames slidably connected together,l wire fabric secured tjo the frames, andv arten-gue integral with the side of one frame and-standing in the path of the other' frame when the frames are collapsed; to a. predetermined degree.

4. A rect-angular. frame for as vwindow screen compris-ing a strip of sheet metal; folded lengthwiseV upon itself and. lying in only two planes, providingv two: oppositel)7 diieposed spaced-apart walls., and a wire fabric having its edges secured between and by the said. walls, the said walls beingl cut trans- ,.versely; at the corners of the' frame and the folded edge being continuous and bent atthe corners to form right angle corners and the walls` adjacent tothe cuts overlapping each otherl at thecornersfto form four thicknesses.

5. A rectaiigula-rv framef for a window screen comprising a strip ofv sheet metal' fold- -ed lengthwise upon itself andi lyingin only two planes, providingv twoa oppositelyl disposed spaced-apart walls, and ay wirel fabric having itsedges secured: between and bythe saidy wallsr the:- said4 walls'. being cut Vtransversely at the. corners of' the frame and the folded edge being continuous and bent at the corners to form right anglecorners and the walls adjacent to the cuts Voverlappin g each other at the corners to form four. thiclmesses and the" walls having lateral beads forming miter joints at tliecorn'ersof the frame..

f6. A. rectangular Aframe for a window screen 'comprisingja strip of sheet metal vfolded lengthwise uponitselff and lying in only two. planes, prclavidingl two oj'gposit'ely d-isposed separated-@art walls, and a wire fabrie having its edges secured between and by the said walls, the saidwalls being eut transversely at the Corners of the frame and the folded edge being continuous and bent at the corners to form right angle corners and the walls adjacent to the cuts overlapping l each other at the Corners to form four`thicknesses, and the sides of the frame being under elastic tension tending to move the fabric outwardly in the plane thereof.
