A further object of. this invention is to provide a; paper or sheet holder which: will frictionaliy holdthe: paper at anypoiirtorr the: surface of the top and will also provide an antislip means for the book holder" or controller when the top is tilted.
A further object of this invention is to provide a desk or table top which constitutes a sight saving. device wherein the. book holder andpaper holder work with the top in. the, angular. adiustmentlof thelatter so that a. student will; sit-properly while. adjusting these devices, to needs as tothe arms, eyes and shoulders.
With the above and other objects in View my invention consists in the arrangement,,combination and details of construction disclosed in. the drawings and specification, and then more: particularly pointed out in the, appended claims;
In the drawings,
Figure 1 is a plan view partly broken aware, of a desk topconstructed according to an embodiment of this invention, including a book holder and paper holder,
Figure 2 is a detail end elevation of the desk top and holder,
Figure 3 is a front elevation of the book holder,

Figure 5 is a fragmentary plan view showing the book holder in a second position on the surface of the top,
Figure 6 is a fragmentary sectional view taken on the line 6-6 of Figure 5,
Figure 7 is a fragmentary plan view showing the paper holder engaged with the trough at the front of the top,
Figure 8 is a fragmentary sectional view taken on the line 88 of Figure '7,
Figure 9 is a plan view, partly broken away, of
the paper harder and friction base for thebook lioId'en figure'l fl is a bottom plan view or the top,
Figurellliisa diagrammatic view showing: the adgiustedi position of the top relative tothebook holder,
Figure l2i is: a diagrammatic view: showing the top in am extrema tilted positionv and showing? in dotted lines the elevated position of the top.
to the drawings, the numerali. I25 desienates: genemliliv a topstructure which includes a, plate t6 having:- ppcsite end depending flanges lt'k and I18; a rear flange IE9; Erie ton l5i is termed. with! at rearwardly' projecting 20 art cneend: thereof, andisal'so formedwithasecond rearwardiy; projecting! am? M which is slightly shorter in; length than: thearm 2.0.
flange ii! is; continued about the arm 21; as; indicated at 22'. and" the, flange 22: merges with; the: flange: 59a The; flange; l8: extends along the outer edge of the arm 20 and continues about the: margin; 01: the 211;, as indicated at 23. The; flange 2,3 mergesswith the adjacent end; or the rear" flange 95..
A transversely extendmgz' bracingrib: 24. pro; i'eets from. the top plate Ht rearwardly from the forward edge thereon. and; longitudinal; flanges 2&-
26% extend; from the flange 245 rearwardly. The'flamge 26? connects; with a; transverse flange H which extends: from the. adjacent end? of the rear flange t9} A fiorlced flange. 28 extends from the flange I5 and! comrects. at. the open forward end thereof with: the forwardflange 24. A similar forked flange. extends from the forward end of flange me One side of forked flange 28 extends forwardly, as indicated at 30, and is connected with a downwardly offset trough 3| disposed at the forward end of the top IS. A flange 32 extends from one side of the forked flange 29 and also connects with the trough 3|.
The trough 3| also includes a front wall 34 which projects upwardly above the surface of the plate 16. The forked flanges 28 and 28 provide a means for securing a lifting or elevating means 35 to the lower side of the plate I6.
A book holder generally designated as 36 is adapted to !be disposed on the upper side of the top l5 and includes a plate 31 having a right angular lower wall 38, and an upwardly inclined book retaining flange 39. The book holder 38 includes an adjustable supporting arm 40 which is pivoted on a transversely disposed bar 4! carried by a slide 42. The slide 42 engages a verti cally disposed guide 43 disposed on the rear side sheet S will be firmly held on the surface 3 of the plate 31, and plate 31 is provided with a plurality of spaced keeper openings 44.
The supporting arm 40 is provided with a locking lug 45 which is engageable in a selected one of the keeper openings 44. The arm 4|] is yieldably held in either collapsed or extended position by means of a spring 46. The forward or lower end of the arm 40 is provided with a hook 41 engageable in the trough 3| and with the undercut or inclined rear wall 33 so that the holder will be held against downward sliding movement when the top' I5 is inclined downwardly and rearwardly from its forward end.
The book holder 36 also includes a pair of feet members 48 formed with notches 49. In order to provide a means whereby the book holder 36 4 forward wall 34 of the trough 3| provides means whereby in the event the rear of the top I5 is raised above the horizontal, any books, papers or the like on the upper surface of the top |5 will be held by the wall 34 against sliding ofi from the forward end of the top l5.
The elevating means 35 comprises a pair of levers pivoted as at 56 to the forward wall of the box 55, and the elevating means 35 is pivotallj secured as at 57 to the lower side of the top l5. This double and spaced pivotal mounting of the top l5 provides a means whereby the top may be tilted upwardly at its forward edge, and the top may also be elevated to a parallel position with may be firmly and immovably mounted on the upper surface of the top l5 when the hook 4! is disengaged from the trough 3|, I have provided an anti-sli member generally designated as 50. The anti-slip member 50 includes an elongated :plate 5| having ribbed rubber plates 52 and 53 fixed to the opposite faces thereof. An upwardly projecting flange 54 extends from one longitudinal edge of the plate 5| and the flange 54, as :shown in Figure 6, is adapted to engage in one of the notches 49 of each foot member 48.
The anti-slip member 50, as shown in Figure 1,
.may also be used to hold a paper sheet S on the inverted, as shown in Figure 8, wherein the flange 54 projects downwardly into the trough 3|. 'The weight of the anti-slip member 50, togetherwith the ribbed construction of the rubber members 52 and 53 will provide a means whereby the top l5.
Referring now to Figures 11 and 12, the top [5 is shown in full lines in Figure 11, in substantially horizontal position, and in Figure 12 is shown in full lines in the extreme tilted position. The dotted lines in Figure 11 show the several ad'- justed positions which may be assumed by the top l5 and it will be noted particularly in Figure -11, that as the forward edge of the top I5 is raised of the upwardly, the rear edge thereof will be proporrespect to the box |5 by rocking the top on the pivot 51. v t I "I do not mean to confine myself to the exact .details of construction herein disclosed, but claim all variations falling within the purview of the appended claims.
What I claim is:
1. A paper holder for holding paper on a flat inclined.- surface comprising an elongated plate, a serrated cushion member fixed to one face of said plate, and a flange projecting from one longitudinal edge of said plate beyond the face of said cushion member for engagement with the upper edge of said inclined surface.
2. In combination, an inclined desk top, and an anti-slip paper holder engageable on the upper surface of said top, said holder including an elongated plate, a cushion member fixed on one face of said plate, a, right angular flange carried by one-longitudinal edge of said plate and projecting from'said one face of said plate, said cushion member holding a fiat sheet between the desk top against movement and said flange engageable with the top edge of the desk top to thereby hold the holder adjacent the top edge of the desk top.
