NEW YORK—(/I*)—My contribution lo the day's news on Korea is Ibnt tbe Korean language is the only one in the world which has to be typed horizontally and read vertically. There arc Chinese and Japanese typewriters which type those languages both horizontally and vertically. But the only Korean keyboard developed so far insists you tyne across the page, from right to left, although you read Its words up and down, Th is in f o mia t Ion conies from Martin K. Tylcll. a 36-year-old New York w!?,ard who can tear apart a typewriter and make it perform ti any one ol 147 languages and dia- locls. Including Dinka, Sanskrit am Urdu. He has more than 2,000,00 foreign type fnces in his shon anc if von coax him. he'll whip you v a Korean Job. KuL he doesn't rec omnicnd it. "After you get through inn kin ono," he complains, "nobortv know how to use it. IIV probably be muc faster to write the language In long hand." Only a Half T)ozen Tytell guesses there aren't more ! than hflf a dozen ICnrean typewriters in the world. He made onr for tlie Army in 1944. He's grateful he never had Lo use it. Yon see. the Chinese 1 language Is cnmplfrated cnaugh. But Korean uses Chinese ideographic characters, plus a native character .called "en-mun," phis a combination of the. two. Some years ago, Tyt«ll says, a Korean scholar named Dr. Song devised a keyboard which em- nlnys, Hmong other things, 42 dead kevs. That is. you hit one of them nnci the carriage doesn't move. In some cases, you have to hit eight or 10 different keys lo form one character. Korean Secretaries "By the time you get a secretary to learn this, even a Korean secretary," says Tytell, "she'll up an/ ominon have so many differences. : and American typewriters iffcr It's not just a case of pounds crsus dollars. On most of our key- oards, we have just two fractions —the quarter nud half. The BrHish iave one-elshlh, three-eiphth, five- ighths and seven-elchths.
