invention resides in certain features of construc
il tion which form an improvement in the structure
disclosed in the copending application Serial
Number 32,544, ?led by me and Ellsworth B.
Dreher on July 22, 1935.
In said application, there is disclosed a com
10 blned check and cash book having sheets divided
into three separable parts, an outer part forming
a bank check or series of bank checks, an inter
mediate part having suitably designated spaces
to be ?iled in as a cash book and an inner part
15 forming the check stub.
In the closed position of the book. the checks
are folded against the intermediate portions and
ings or perforations a near the inner end of each
of the sheets d to permit the sheets when re- I
moved to be mounted in a loose leaf binder.
The check portions of the sheets ii are ruled
as indicated in Figure 2 with suitable designations
for the ?lling out of the check. The front side of
the cash book sheets at are ruled with spaces 1' for 19
information in regard to the corresponding
check, the number of the check, date, the party
in whose favor the check is drawn and, if de
sired, dates of invoices and accounts to which
the same is chargeable. To the right of the 1‘
spaces r are three columns 1. m and n respec
tively. Column l is entitled “Amount of check"
sheets and the back cover of the book is pro
vided with an extension to provide a backing
20 for the check while it is being ?lled out, this
and columns in and n Jointly entitled “Distribu
tion". While titles of the individual columns m
extension in the closed position being folded
ducted by the drawers of the checks, convenient
and generally applicable titles are “Accounts
payable” or "Special accounts” for the column
around the sheets onto the front cover.
The present invention as applied to the book
above described comprises an improvement of
25 the construction of the hinged connection be
tween the back cover and the extension, which
permits the extension to be raised into contact
with the uppermost or front checks. thus forming
a ?rm backing for the check while it is being
30 filled out.
For this purpose I connect the extension with
the back cover by a still’ strip having a width
equal approximately to the thickness of the book,
this strip being hinged along one edge to the
35 back cover and along its opposite edge to the
sti? extension.
Various other objects and advantages of my
invention will appear from the following descrip
tion taken in connection with the accompanying
40 drawing, which shows one embodiment of the
invention and wherein;
Figure 1 is a perspective view of the combined
cash and check book in closed position;
Figure 2 is a perspective view of the book open
45 with one of the sheets unfolded and the cover
extension raised into contact with the top check;
and
Figure 3 is an end view of the back open show
ing the arrangement of parts when approximately
50 half of the checks have been removed, the top
most of the remaining checks unfolded. and the
rear cover extension is raised into contact there
with.
The sheets ii of the book It shown in Figure
55 2 are divided by perforations along lines a to
and n may vary with different businesses con- 20
or columns m and "Other” for column n, this
latter indicating a disbursement chargeable to 25
accounts other than "Accounts payable” or
"Special accounts”.
,
The front of the stub portions contain the
number of the check and have spaces for the in
sertion of the amount of the check.
30
The back of the cash sheet as shown at the
left of Figure 2 contains spaces for the insertion
of bank deposits and information relative there
to. This side of the cash sheet is ruled with a
date column 0, a column 9 for the names of the 35
sources from which the deposits were received,
a column q giving the deposit total brought for
ward and individual deposits and columns r’ and
3 showing the distribution of deposits, the col
umns 1" being "Special accounts" or "Accounts 40
receivable" and the column 3 being marked
“Other", and containing accounts other than the
“Accounts receivable" or "Special accounts”.
The back of the stub portion contains a col-‘
umn for the insertion of the balance brought 45
forward and the amounts of the individual de
posits.
The amounts brought forward on the stub
show the actual cash balance and this sum may
be checked by subtracting the amount brought 50
forward on the check side of the cash sheet from
the amount brought forward from the deposit
side of the cash sheet.
Where more complete distribution of the
items shown in columns a and s are desired, I 55

sheets which extend the length of the sheets ii.
The former sheets are ruled on the left for credit
distribution and on the right for debit distribu
tion. I preferably provide a column between the
credit and debit distribution columns for the
items to be distributed. The distribution sheets
are weakened along lines near the inner edge so
that they can also be removed and are suitably
punched for insertion in the loose leaf binder.
The check cash book when closed is approxi
mately one third its length when opened. The
check portions fold back upon the intermediate
or inner portions of the leaves or sheets II and
the back distribution sheets also fold at ap
proximately the center.
One form of cover for the cash check book is
shown at H in Figure 1. It comprises stiif front
portions it and It, the portion it being formed
decreasing the space necessary for the storage of
the stub portions.
Having now described my invention, what I
claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
l. A book comprising a cover and leaves fold
ed each against itself and adapted to be unfolded
to form respectively inner and outer portions
and said leaves being weakened along lines of the
folds whereby the outer portions may be suc
cessively removed from the inner portions and
said outer portions being adapted for writing on
one side thereof, a. stiff strip hinged at one edge
to one edge of the cover approximately in line
with said folds and of a width approximately
equal to the thickness of the book, an extension
hinged to the opposite edge of the strip, the
hinged connections between the strip and cover
and extension being such that the strip may as
sume positions at acute angles to the cover and
20 as a foldable extension of the back portion II.

The extension It is connected to the back por
tion I‘! by a stiff strip III which is hinged along
one edge at 2| to the back cover I‘! and along
the opposite edge at 22 to the extension II.
The stiii' connecting strip II permits the ex
25
tension It to be raised into contact with the
check to form a backing therefor while the check
is being ?lled out. Figure 2 ‘shows the extension
with three of the first checks in the book un
30 folded and it will be seen that the strip I0 is
substantially vertical. As more checks are used
and torn out, the opening of the book at the
uppermost of the remaining checks causes the
a leaf unfolded, the strip may be swung to move
the inner edge of the extension to the level of
said last named leaf and the extension may be
used for a backing for the outer portion of said
last named leaf.

each against itself and adapted to be unfolded to
form an outer part and intermediate part and a
small inner part, the inner part having suitably
designated spaces. on one side for ?lling out
with the amount of the checks and on the other
side for ?lling out with amounts of deposits, the
intermediate having suitably designated spaces on
one side for distribution of disbursements and on
the other side for distribution of receipts, and the
plane along which the strip 20 lies, is aproxi
outer part having suitably designated spaces to be
mately the same width regardless of the number
filled out as a bank check, the leaf being weak
ened along the fold which is between the check
of checks left in the book as will be seen for ex
ample in Figure 3. The extension ll may there
40 for be moved into facial contact with check re
gardless of the number of checks remaining in
the book.
While I have described my invention as ap
plied to a combined check and cash hook, it is
45 obvious that it may be applied to other books
having folded sheets and it may be applied to
either, or to both, front and back covers.
The portions l5 and II are preferably weak
ened along lines ll adjacent the stub section
50 so that when the check and cash portions are
removed from the book all of the cover except
the back binding may be removed, thus greatly
and intermediate parts, a still’ strip hinged at one
edge to one edge of the cover approximately in
line with said folds and of a width approximately
equal to the thickness of the book, an extension
hinged to the opposite edge of the strip, the
hinged connections between the strip and cover
and extension being such that the strip may
assume positions at acute angles to the cover and
extension, whereby when said book is opened and
a leaf unfolded, the strip may be swung to move
the inner edge of the extension to the level of
said last named leaf and the extension may be
used as a backing for the outer part of said last
named sheet.
