in the iront 3 from where it may be taken by
the purchaser. At the same time the operating
arm 2E is moved forward to contact and actuate
the pencil release 22 and the angular plats 26,
causing a pencil in the slot 24 of the release 22
to move into the stop chamber I8 where it falls
onto the angular plate 26. Upon release of the
mechanism 9, the pencil falls into an inclined
trough 3i). There is an opening 3l in the front 3
to accommodate the trough 30 and the width of
a pencil whereby the latter may roll to the outer
end of the said trough outside of the device. The
trough 36 is secured to the front of the card con
