2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Filed Sept. 29, 1931 gmmtoc 'TZEC/ia 1/1 12 Patented Mar. 20, 1934 UNITED STATES rArar Fries 4 Claims.

7 This invention relates to receptacles, and more particularly to a receptacle which is adapted for use in receiving small articles of paper.

, An object of this invention is to provide a receptacle having a number of compartments therein which may be suitably adjusted at various angles one with respect to another, so that articles may be transferred from one compartment to another.

- Another object of this invention is to provide a device of this kind which is particularly adapted for use in copy work where data or the like is copied off of articles disposed within one of the compartments comprising this device.

A further object of this invention is to provide a device of this kind which is so constructed that it will securely hold small slips of paper or the like in a position for use by a typist or other machine operator, the slip being so held as to be readily removed from one of the compartments forming the device and transferred to another compartment without danger of the slip of paper being blown away.

A still further object of this invention is to provide a device of this kind which is relatively light in weight and which includes means whereby the device may be maintained in operative position, and also means for folding or collapsing the device.

The above and various other objects and advantages of this invention will in part be described in and in part be understood from the following detailed description of the present preferred embodiment, the same being illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein:--

Figure l is a detail perspective view of a device constructed according to the preferred embodiment of this invention;

I Figure 2 is a fragmentary elevation of the lock-- ing member for locking the hinged door to one of the compartments of the device;

Figure 3 is a longitudinal section taken substantially through the center of the device when in closed or collapsed position;

Figure 4 is an elongated fragmentary longitudinal section taken substantially through the center of the device showing a portion of the device in partly opened position.

Referring to the drawings wherein like numerals of reference designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, the numeral 10 designates generally a boxing or housing which is of substantially rectangular cross sectional configuration having a closed lower end portion 13 .55 and an open upper end portion 11. The side walls 12 of the housing or boxing 10 are preferably cut away at an angle, as at 14, and a second housing or article receiving member, generally designated as 15, is hingedly secured as by a hinge 15 to the rear or fixed rack member 10.

This swingable rack member 15 constitutes the forward or working rack or housing and the opposite end walls 17 of this working rack 15 are also beveled, as at 18, so that when the working rack 15 is swung into inoperative position, the opposite sides thereof will be in substantial alinement with the adjacent sides of the fixed or rear housing 10 and the inclined edges 18 thereof will engage the inclined edges 14 of the rear housing 10.

The front wall of the working rack 15 is provided with a substantially transparent member 19 which is cut away, as at 20, so as to permit articles in the form of slips of paper, or the like, to be readily removed therefrom and deposited into 76 the rear rack or boxing 10. This forward or working rack 15 is held in adjusted position with respect to the rear or fixed rack 10 by means of a notched bar 21 which is pivotally secured, as at 22, to one of the side walls 12 of the rear rack member 10. The opposite end of this notched locking member 21 engages a headed pin 23 carried by the'adjacent side wall 17 of the working rack 15. In this manner, the two racks 10 and 15 may be angularly adjusted one with respect to the other, so that the working rack 15 will be positioned in the desired inclination to facilitate not only the removal of articles from the interior thereof but to also facilitate the reading of matter carried by the slips of paper positioned there- A second rack member generally designated as 24: is hingedly secured, as at 25, to the upper or open end of the rear rack member 10. This up- I per rack 24 comprises a bottom 26, side walls 2'7 and a rear wall 28. The side walls 27 are of angular configuration, as disclosed in Figures 1, 3 and 4, and this member 24, when in operative position, constitutes a shelf or upper rack for holding or supporting desired articles in the form of slips of paper, or the like.

As disclosed in Figure 3, the upper rack 24 is adapted to partially telescope the working rack 15 when the device is in inoperative position and is adapted to close the front wall 19 of the working '10:: rack 15, so that no articles will fall out thereof when the device is in closed or collapsed position. The rear rack 10 is provide-d with a door or closure 29 hingedly secured thereto by means of a hinged member 30 and a segmental looking or latch member 31 is pivotally carried by the closure 29 and engages a keeper 32 carried by the rear wall of the rack 10, so as to releasably lock the closure 29.

. This device may be made in various sizes so as to hold not only relatively small slips of paper in the form of coupons which have been cut out of magazines, or the like, and which have addresses inserted thereon, but may be made in larger sizes so as to receive any desired size of paper. This rack construction may be made out of any desired material such as heavy cardboard, wood, metal, composition material or the like.

In the use of this device, the operative position will be as disclosed in Figure 1, wherein the working rack 15 will be disposed in upwardly and rearwardly inclined position with respect to a person sitting forwardly thereof, so that the articles positioned within the rack 15 can be readily viewed by a person, for instance, sitting at a typewriter or positioned beside any other desired machine. Due to the transparent construction of the front wall 19 of the working rack 15, it will not be necessary to remove the articles or slips of paper from the working rack 15 in order to take off the desired data from the slips of paper. When the desired data has been removed or taken off of the paper, the forward slip may be moved upwardly and dropped into the rear or receiving rack 10 where the slips of paper will be held without danger of being blown away or otherwise disturbed. Certain articles or slips of paper may be placed in the upper rack or shelf 24, this rack being particularly adapted for use in receiving articles of a smaller nature than are held in the working rack 15. When all the articles have been removed from the working rack 15, the door or closure member 29 may be'opened by turning the latch 31.

In order to prevent the rack construction herein disclosed from marring or otherwise injuring the top of a polished desk or the like, I have provided cushioning members 33 on one edge portion of the working rack 15 and similar cushioning members 34 on the rear rack 10. These cushioning elements may be made of rubber, composition material or the like, and operate also to prevent sliding movement of the rack constructions during the use thereof on a smooth surface.

It will be obvious, from the foregoing, that an exceedingly simple and practical rack construction has been disclosed which will greatly facilitate the handling of small slips of paper, saving a very considerable loss of time which is new occasioned in the handling of these small slips wherein it is now necessary to assert the slips in piles and maintaining paper weights or other heavy articles on the slips so as to prevent their being blown away or otherwise disturbed. This procedure is at best laborious and frequently results in the loss of important slips of paper,

whereas in the use of the device herein disclosed, the slips of paper are maintained in the working rack 15 in a position where the data thereon can be taken ofi without touching the slips of paper, and after the data has been taken off, the slip may be removed from the forward or working rack 15 and deposited in the receiving rack 10, where it will be maintained in secure position until the door or closure 29 has been opened so as to permit the ready emptying of the contents of this receiving member 10.

It is, of course, understood that various changes and modifications may be made in the details of construction and design of the above specifically described embodiment of this invention without departing, from the spirit thereof, such changes and modifications being restricted only by the scope of the following claims.

What is claimed is:-

l. A rack of the character described comprising a pair of substantially box-like members having open abutting end portions, means for hingedly securing said members together, one of said members having a partially cut out wall portion for facilitating removal of articles disposed therein, and means carried by the other of said members for closing the out out portion of said first member upon movement of two members into folded position.

2.
