GAME PADDLE Filed Dec. 10, 1932 wit Patented Sept. 26, 1933 GAME PADDLE ing, Memphis, Tenn.

Guy M. Young, Joe P. Bowers, and Roy W. Zear- Application December 10, 1932 Serial No. 646,676

2 Claims. (01. 27397) This invention relates to devices for playing games and particularly to paddles of that character in which a ball is attached to the paddle by a string and in which the object of the game is to so manipulate the paddle and ball that the "ball will strike against a selected portion of the paddle, if possible.

' The general object of the present invention is to provide a paddle of this character having a ball attached thereto by means of a string and having at the centerof the paddle, or at any other desired point, a plunger against which the player endeavors to project the ball, the plunger in turn being operatively connected to a bell clapper so that when the ball strikes the plunger, the bell will ring.

Our invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing, whereinF- Fig. 1 'is a longitudinal sectional view of the game paddle constructed in accordance with our invention;

Fig. 2 is a face view of the paddle;

Fig. 3 is a rear face view of the paddle;

Fig. 4 is a fragmentary section through the center of the paddle and through the bell;

Fig. 5 is an edge elevation of a modified form of our paddle.

Referring to the drawing-10 designates the paddle generally which is provided with the handle 11 and with the approximately circular paddle portion 12.

I A ball 13 is attached to one face of the paddle by means of the elastic 14 which is shown as being attached to the face of the paddle by means of the staple 15. Extending loosely through the center of the paddle portion 12 is a plunger 16 which may be in the form'of an ordinary rivet having the relatively wide head 17 and at its other end being spread over a small washer 18. The shank of this rivet has a length greater than the thicknessof the paddle so that when the ball strikes the rivet, the rivet will be moved inward 'in the manner of a plunger. Mounted on therear face of the paddle at any desired point is aasuppor't 19'which is shown as a strip of metal bent into an approximate V-shape and having its'extre'mities attached to the face of the paddle.

as by tacks or brads 20. This support carries upon it the bell 21. Also attached to this face strip of resilient metal held at one endby' the tacks 23 and at the other end having a slight head. The resilience of this metal strip acts to force it toward the paddle and force the plunger 6 to have the ball strike the plunger,- forcing the of the paddle is a tappet 22 consisting of a thin plunger inward and ringing the bell. The object of the game, of course, is to ring the bell as many times as possible without a miss.

Obviously certain details of this construction might be modified without departing from the spirit of the invention as defined in the appended claims.

Thus, for instance, while we design that the paddle'shall be made of ply wood and have so shown it, we do not wish to be limitedto this nor 1 to the particular form of the bell 21 nor the means for supporting the bell except 'as called for in the claims. Thus the clapper 22 might be omitted, in which case the plunger 16 would be disposed to impact against the gong as illustrated in Figure 5. In this instance, the plunger strikes the bell directly and the plunger is held forward by a cone-shaped coil spring" 24 which is disposed around the plunger under its head and against the face side of the paddle; Neither do I wish to be limited to'the use of a bell as a signal showing that the ball has hit the mark as some other noise producer might be disposed behind the plunger to be sounded thereby.

We claim: v

1. A paddle game of the character described, comprising a paddle having a handle and a paddle portion, an elastic cord attach'ed to the faceof thepaddle and carrying a ball, a "plunger movable through the center of the paddle portion and having a head on'the face of the paddle and with which the ball is adapted to contact, a V-shaped support mounted upon the back of the paddle and carrying a bell and a clapper attachedto the rear face of the paddle and resiliently bearing against 5 the plunger and urging it outward, the clapper being arranged to strike the bell when the plunger is forced inward by contact with the ball.

2. A game paddle of the character described, having a handle, a paddle portion, a ball, a string connecting the ball to one face of the paddle portion, a plunger mounted for movement through the center of the paddle portion and having an enlarged head on that face of the paddle to which the cord is attached against which the ball may impact, a spring attached to the rear face of the paddle portion and down over the plunger, the free end of the spring constituting a bell clapper and a bell 'mounted upon the rear face of the paddle and against which the end of the spring clapper is adapted to engage when the plunger is struck by the ball.
