Application January 24, 1956, Serial No. 561,129

3 Claims. (Cl. 40--10.5)

This invention relates to calendars.

It is an object of the present invention to provide a calendar attachment for telephones which may be easily and readily mounted upon conventional telephones.

It is another object of the present invention to provide a calendar attachment of the above type wherein the angle of the calendar may be easily and readily adjusted to accommodate the calendar to telephones of varying height.

Other objects of the invention are to provide a calendar attachment for telephones bearing the above objects in mind which is of simple construction, has a minimum number of parts, is inexpensive to manufacture and efiicient in use.

For other objects and for a better understanding of the invention, reference may be had to the following detailed description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, in which:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of a preferred embodiment of the present invention shown in operative use;

Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional view thereof taken along the line 2-2 of Fig. 1;

Fig. 3 is a rear perspective view of the invention shown alone; and

Fig. 4 is a top plan view of a blank from which the invention is formed.

Referring now more in detail to the drawing, indicates generally a conventional telephone hand set including the usual pedestal 11, the rockers 12 and the finger receiving opening 13 intermediate the rockers, substantially as illustrated.

In the practice of my invention, a calendar attachment is provided for the telephone 10 and includes the rectangular wall 14 of flexible tough paper, plastic, thin sheet metal or any other suitable material. As shown in Fig. 4, the rectangular wall 14 along its lower edge is integrally formed with the central rectangular, elongated tongue 15 along the fold line 16. The wall 14 along its lower edge on either side of the tongue 15 is also integrally formed with the rectangular base portions 17 along the fold lines 18, the base portion 17 being in turn integrally formed with the supports 19 along the fold lines 20. The ends of the supports 19 remote from the base portions 17 are formed with the reduced extensions 21.

The wall 14 is provided with two vertical rows of slots 22, the slots of each row being vertically spaced and vertically aligned and being adapted to receive therein selectively the reduced ends 21 of the supports 19, as shown in Fig. 3, whereby to vary the angle of the wall 14.

A small paper calendar 23 of conventional design is stapled to the front face of the wall 14 as shown in Fig. 1. The blank of Fig. 4 is assembled, as shown in Fig. 3, by folding the rectangular wall 14 upwardly against the horizontal tongue 15 and supporting the same by means of the rearwardly folded base portion 17 and the supports 19 thereof, the reduced extensions 21 being received within the selected slots 22. The device is then positioned on the sloping portion 24 (Fig. 2) of the pedestal 11 with the tongue 15 extending into the finger opening 13 and the forward edge thereof being looped rearwardly to engage the lip 25. The tongue 15 is slightly wider than the width of the finger opening 13 whereby to firmly position the calendar attachment on the pedestal rearwardly of the rockers 12.

The calendar will be provided in various colors to harmonize with the present day telephone color schemes, providing a color-full calendar pad 23 which will fit right on to the telephone set.

While various changes may be made in the detail construction, it shall be understood that such changes shall be within the spirit and scope of the present invention as defined by the appended claims.

Having thus set forth and disclosed the nature of my invention, what is claimed is:

1. A calendar attachment for telephones, having a rearwardly opening finger grip housing and an inclined pedestal surface extending downwardly therefrom comprising, in combination, a pair of transversely spaced base portions adapted to be supported upon the inclined pedestal surface, an upwardly and rearwardly extending calendar supporting wall secured to the forward edge of said base portions, a substantially vertical support secured at their lowermost extremities to the rearward edge of each of said base portions and engaged at their uppermost extremities with said supporting wall, and a forwardly extending flexible tongue secured at its rearmost edge to the bottom edge of said supporting wall between said base portions, said tongue being adapted to be folded upwardly and rearwardly within the finger grip opening.

2. A calendar attachment as set forth in claim 1, wherein said vertical supports include extensions of reduced size at their upper extremities, and said supporting wall comprises a plurality of vertically spaced slots for selectively receiving said extensions to vary the angle of inclination of said supporting wall.

3. A calendar as set forth in claim 2, wherein said supporting wall together with said base portions and said vertical supports comprise a substantially rigid structure, said tongue being operative to resiliently resist rearward movement of said rigid structure and rotation thereof about said rearmost edge of said base portions.
