Referring now in detail to these drawings, and referring first particularly to Figures 1 through 6, :the combination desk and chair structure there shown generally comprises a standard having a pedestal I, a laterally extending supportrearwardly extending supporting leg 3 secured to the'bottom of the pedestal as and extending in parallelism to the supporting legs 2 and 3 respectively. A desk top generally designated 8 of the box-type, is mounted on the brackets 4 and 5 as by means of bolts or rivets I.

The rearward end of the supporting leg 3 is formed to provide a circular bearing surface 8 having a central, upstanding. annular spindle 8 formed integrally with the leg 3 and provided with internal screw-threads. A chair-carrying arm III has one of its ends similarly formed to provide a circular bearing surface ll having a central, annular bore which receives the spindle 9 on the leg 3, and these parts are secured together in pivotally connected assembly by means of a washer l2 and a machine screw l3 whose shank passes through the washer l2 and is screw threaded into the spindle 9. A depending stop M on the arm it travels in an arcuate way I5 in the leg 3, and the ends of the way I5 serve as cooperating stops with the stop l4v to limit forward and rearward swinging movements of the arm I0.

The outer end of the chair-carryin-g arm l0 is supported in its swinging movement on a conical roller i6 hereinafter more fully described, and a chair generally designated I1 is mounted on an upstanding post It the lower end of which is secured as by welding to the arm l0 and the upper end of which is provided with a circular bracket 19 (see Figure 2) on which the chair is mounted rotatably about a vertical axis in any conventional manner. It will be seen that the arrangement above described provides a unitary structure in which the chair is movable at the will of the occupant so that he may position the same in desired relation to the desk.

Figures 4-6 inclusive show the construction and arrangement of the roller It on the arm to. This roller is of conical formation and comprises spaced hubs 20, 2! adapted to be Journalled on a spindle 22 at the outer end of the arm it, to which hubs are secured as by welding a pair of annular discs or webs 23, 24 having inner portions 25, 28 secured together as by rivets 2'! and outer retaining flanges 28 which retain therebetween a conically formed rubber tire 29. The roller is thus formed is tur'nably secured on the spindle 22 as by means of a. disc 30 and machine screw 3i passing through the disc and threaded in the spindle 22. The axis of the roller's tuming movement, which is indicated in Figure 4 by a broken line 32, is inclined to such a degree that it intersects the point where the vertical axis of the turning movement of arm I0 meets the floor. By this arrangement, there is a true rolling movement of the roller it on the floor, without any sliding movement, and the wear on the roller and on the floor is thus reduced to a minimum.

Figure? illustrates a modification of the chaircarrying arm in which two rollers 33 and 34 are provided for increasing the support of the post 35 on which the chair is mounted, and which post is secured to the chair-carrying arm between the two rollers.

Glides 36 are secured as by screws 31 to the underside of the laterally extending leg 2 of the standard. These glides facilitate movement of the structure across a floor when placing units of this type in position in a classroom. According to the present invention, these glides serve an additional function in maintaining the units in predetermined positions, and this is of especial importance when it is desired that the units be arranged in arcuate rows as illustrated in Figure 9. To this end, floor plates 3! (see Figures 10 and 11) are set into the floor and secured as by wood screws 39 in an arrangement conforming to the desired layout of the classroom; The floor plates 38 have sockets 40 whirh conform to the shape of the glides 2B, and it will be seen that as the structure is moved into position over the pre-installed floor plates, the glides 38 will readily enter the sockets 40 and will maintain the structure in its proper location until such time as it is desired to move the same, whereupon the structure may be lifted slightly to disengage the glides from the sockets.

As best seen in Figures 12-18 inclusive, the box-type desk top 5 comprises a bottom 4|, a front wall 42, side walls 43 having inwardly turned, slotted angle portions 44 at the rear thereof, a fixed cover 45 over the forward portion of the top having a conventional inkwell 4i anda rearwardly extending lip 41. A lid 48 is provided with brackets 49 secured to the underside of the lid as by screws 50, and the rearward ends of the brackets 49 are pivotally connected to the rearward ends of bars 5| which bars are in turn slidably mounted on the side walls 43 of the dsk top by means of pins 52, 53 on the side walls which extend into forward slots 54 and rearward slots 55 in the bars 5|. It will be seen that the lid 48 is thus mounted for forward and rearward sliding movement and for turning movement about a horizontal axis near its rearward edge to a lowered position covering the desk top and to a raised position adapted to support 4 a book or the like. As best seen in Figures 15-18, the lid 48 has a forwardly projecting lip 56 which engages under the lip 41 on the cover 45 when the lid is in its forward position, and in this position the lid is prevented from turning movement. The rear portion of the rear slot 55 in each bar 5| is turned upwardly so that initial rearward movement of the lid raises the rear portion of the lid but lowers the front thereof so that the lips 41 and 58 are disengaged, after which the lid may be swung upwardly to an inclined position wherein it is adapted to support a book or other item, the lid being provided with a ledge 51 for this purpose.

The chair 11 comprises a seat 58 and a back rail 59 secured to stamped sheet metal side frames 50 in any conventional manner. The back rail 59 is of rearwardly bowed arcuate cross section, and the rearward edge of the desk top lid 48 above the rear opening in the desk top, is similarly arcuately shaped. By this arrangement the back rail 59 serves as a closure for the rear opening in the desk top when the lid 48 is in its lowered, forwardly slid position and the chair I! is in its extreme forwardly moved position. Means are provided for locking the chair to the desk top with the back rail thus closing the rear opening in the desk top in order to prevent theft of articles from the interior of the desk top. These locking means comprise a mounting plate 6| secured to the underside of the desk tops bottom H as by means of screws 62, an oval-shaped wire hasp 63 slidably mounted in the mounting plate ii for forward movement beneath the desk and for rearward movement through a slot 64 in the ohairs back rail 59, and a padlock 65 which may be of the combination type adapted for insertion in the rearward loop of the hasp 63 after after said rearward loop has been passed through the slot II in the back rail 59. ment of the hasp 63 is stopped the forward loop thereof with a shoulder tion the mounting plate 6|. The back rail 59 is thus locked in closing position in the desk top. in which ment of the desk top's lid by engagement of desk top is thus positively prevented. As seen in Figure 19, the slot 64 in the back rail 59 may be lined with protective sheet metal members 61 and 68 to prevent marring of the back rail by the locking mechanism.

purpose of the transparent lid is to permit inspection of the contents of the desk top when the structure is locked. Still another purpose is to preclude the occupant from raising the lid to the position indicated in Figures 17 and 18, and

' obscuring himself from his instructor's view.

The glass pane may be constructed and installed in the lid in any known manner. As shown the pane 68 has strengthening ribs 10 and a marginal edge H to which a metal moldin 12 has been applied, and the metal molding is in turn secured to the frame 13 of the lid as by means of brads 14.

Figure'23 illustrates a modification of the invention in which the supporting standard for the structure is fabricated from metal tubing. As shown a single length of tubing is bent to form a pair of pedestals 15,16 connected by an upper, front, desk-top supporting portion I1, and a rearwardly extending leg 18 to which the chaircarrying arm 19- is pivotally connected. Other lengths of tubing are shown welded to the main length and comprise an upper rearwardly extending side support 80 for the desk top 8|, and a strengthening brace 82 in the angle formed between the pedestal and the leg I8.

It will thus be seen that the present invention provides a combination desk and chair structure which has many utilitarian features shown and described, further modifications might be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the appended claims.
