Abstract: A ball-point pen for water-soluble ink having a barrel with a vent hole, a cylindrical ink reservoir covered except at its exposed front and rear ends, and an ink feed core for supplying ink from the reservoir to a ball at the pen writing tip is provided with a hollow inner cover member comprising a cylindrical holding part for covering and holding a relatively long front portion of the reservoir and a cylindrical shielding part for partitioning the front exposed part of the reservoir and the feed core from the vent hole, the inner cover member being secured within the barrel by press-fitting the front end of the shielding part into a bore of the front end part of the barrel. Passages are provided for communication between the vent hole and the rear exposed end of the reservoir. Leakage of ink due to causes such as temperature change and impact force imparted to the barrel in the longitudinal direction thereof is thereby prevented.
Abstract: A white or grayish white substance can be formed by dipping, in the first step, aluminum or an aluminum alloy having an anodically oxidized film in a first solution containing a specific salt or electrolyzing with said first solution, thereby causing the product from this salt to enter into the micropore of said film and then, in the subsequent second step, dipping the product from the first step in a second solution containing a substance which reacts with the product from the salt to be converted into a white or grayish white compound or electrolyzing with said second solution.

A liquid sealing space is provided between two substrates sealed by an adhesive in which space a dispersing liquid having a yield value of at least 5 dyne/cm.sup.2 is filled. The dispersing liquid is composed of fine magnetic particles, a colorant, a dispersion medium and the organic and inorganic thickeners.
