Abstract: This invention concerns a game board apparatus comprising a checkerboard pattern of a multiplicity of parallel rows and columns of alternately-colored spaces and a pair of continuous pathways running horizontally and vertically from space-to-space in opposite directions by devious routes from one corner of the board to a diagonally-opposite corner of the board, and means providing a maze of several alternative and dead-end paths deviating from each pathway and designed to confuse the players with respect to the most direct route for movement of a play piece from start to finish of each pathway, the rate of a player's play piece progess from start to finish being determined entirely by chance and player perception.
Abstract: A replaceable individual proofing cup for use in proofing English muffin doughballs and comprising a flanged, flat-bottomed, cylindrical receptacle formed of porous, interlocked-fiber wool felt and having minimum draft in its sidewalls giving good doughball release characteristics for depositing proofed doughballs into grilling cups of a conventional traveling English muffin griddle and minimum lay in its bottom so as not to restrict lateral growth of the doughballs when proofing.
Abstract: A pilot for a 1 to 2 million btu/hr. gas burning ignitor having a chamber for mixing gas and air in combustible proportions with an annular flame retaining and stabilizing device at its outlet. This device comprises two conical surfaces configured together in back-to-back relation within a cylindrical shroud, one a converging inlet to a restricted flow area and the other a diffusing outlet surface therefrom with a sharp circumferential lip inbetween. A distribution head at the inlet to the mixing chamber directs jets of gas at the lip of said cones which aspirate turbulent air through ports in the wall of the chamber. A high voltage elecrode ingites the gas/air mixture at the cone lip. A ported extension of the mixing chamber downstream of the stabilizing device contains the pilot flame and shrouds additional aspirated air for control of secondary combustion in the pilot.
Abstract: A seamless expandable bag filter of nonwoven material using conventional filtering media and having 62% greater extended area than other commercially available extended arm filters and incorporating broad, flat sealing collars or plates on each side of the neck of the bag and sealing them together to insure a no-leak installation.

Abstract: In the operation of an air atomized jet engine augmentor oil burner, the herein disclosed improvement typically comprises a means for modulating the fuel-air ratio of the wake combustion in the jet engine augmentor according to ambient pressures and densities of the supplied air to that ratio which will sustain the highest wake combustion thermal efficiency, and in the process to vaporize and ignite the fuel-air mixture therein instantly and completely into an intense and turbulent flame spread.
Abstract: A self-contained amusement ride designed for use on a mobile unit can be folded into a compact assembly for highway transport. During operation of the ride, an angularly off-set undercarriage allows the front portion of the mobile unit to support the entire weight of the ride on the ground with essentially no weight on the rear wheels. A pivoted kingpin plate allows transport with adequate ground clearance and a retractable landing gear on the front end of the mobile unit provides for raising and lowering the mobile unit for connection and disconnection from a prime mover. Hydraulically assisted lockable supports tie the main sweep arms to the mobile unit during transit.Pins with integral sliding hammers are provided to perform certain locking and pinning functions during assembly and disassembly of the ride.

Abstract: The present invention concerns a combination of mutually interfitting die and press-block elements adapted for manual use and operation with each other to produce a finished and permanent assembly of the separate components of a pin-back button or badge.
Abstract: A new and distinct variety of kalanchoe particularly suitable for year-around four or six inch pot plant production and distinguished by its dark red flowers held high above an abundant display of large, shiny, dark green leaves. This plant has a ten to twelve week response, a strong, vigorous and upright growth habit, and a profuse production of blooms borne on strong, rigid stems.
Abstract: A new variety of poinsettia plant having the important characteristics of the red variety Gutbier's V-14 (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 4,384), known commercially as "Glory", including the unique ability to produce numerous side shoots on its stem and the production of bracts with short petioles which prevent tubing, but distinguished by the fact that its bracts have a distinctive pink color.
Abstract: A new variety of poinsettia plant distinguished by having the unique characteristics of the red GUTBIER'S V-10 (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 4,235) in all respects except that the new plant has a distinct white color.
Abstract: A new and distinctive variety of poinsettia plant distinguished by the distinctive coloration of its bracts, which are marbled with shades of white and pink, and further characterized by being substantially identical with the red GUTBIER'S V-10 (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 4,235) except with respect to color of the bracts.
Abstract: A new poinsettia cultivar which is substantially the same as the variety Gutbier's V-10 (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 4,235) with respect to form, growth and blooming habits, differing only that this new variety has a pleasing and distinctive pink coloration of its bracts.
Abstract: A new and unique chrysanthemum for Fall gardens (early response) or for year-around four inch pot production (four weeks response), distinguished by its many vibrant pink daisy-like flowers, having bright yellow centers, borne on strong, upright stems; the plant having a vigorous, upright growth and profuse blooming habit whereby the plant forms a mound of color when garden bloomed in the Fall.
