She has appeared many times with Fred Waring. Her theatrical career has been limited in the past year to allow her to continue hereducatlon. Enrolled In Rosarian Academy at West Palm Beach, she soon found as a Junior she was heading her class In typing speed. "I could make It to 40 words a minute wlihout errors," said Miss Keene. "However, when I tried to develop real speed, not being able to hear the margin bell warning slowed me down." Hearing aids were useless in her case. Taught to read before she was five years old, she progressed rapidly In school. She became an efficient lip reader. She has always attended a school for normal-hearing children. Very early in life, she discovered that music "got through" to her. She developed an acute sense of rhythm and this lead to her career. tf 'WJ? I'M i U . M.. X ' - Jacob I. Gottlieb has been promoted to president of J.M. Fields. Inc., the62 unlt department store chain operating In 11 eastern seaboard states.

SIGHT SIGNALS - The Winking light devised by Hank Keene, right, signals when the end of the line is reached in typing instead of using a conventional bell. He made it for t TEQUESTA A blinking light on a typewriter has made possible another achievement for Kathijean Keene, 17, who has already overcome a hearing defect to become a featured dancer on television and stage. The blinking light, substituted for the warning bell that signals when the end of the line nears when typing, may seem a simple mechanical change, but to Miss Keene, who has only 10 per cent hearing, it was the difference between success as a typist and being second rate. The gadget Is not available in normal trade channels. Unable to locate one even among those firms which cater to haid of hearing, her father, Hani Keene, succeeded in produc- ing such a device. Still to be patented, the Keenes hope it may help others master typewriting speed. "Even typewriter repair and service shops discouraged the Idea," said Keene. "One shop took Kathijean's typewriter for several days, then returned it saying the conversion could not be made." Keene, who is a building contractor, insisted he is neither an Inventor or even mechanically inclined for tinkering. He had never seen the inside of an electric typewriter before, but in a few days had solved the problem. With the light installed on his daughter's typewriter at home, her typing speed jumped immediately from 35 words a minute to 65, almost double. "The device is self-contained," said Keene. "It can be worked from the usual house current or with minor adaptations It can operate with a six-volt lantern battery. "I am now looking Into patent arrangements."
