This invention relates tocasement Windows and window screens'therefor and itis in the nature of an improvement'on the Casement window and Window screen which is illus- 7 "fm 'grated in my co-pending 'application Serial No. 372,931, filed Junel22 ,l929. Y
The device illustrated Vin vsaid application comprises a casement Window with a Window screen therefor and Window-operating mechaof theroom.
' featureswillbe pointed'out in therappended n 10` nism constructed so that the Window can be lopened and closed from within the room withoutremoving the screen. This mechanism includes an operating membersecured to the casement Window and 'extending through a notch formed inthe screen so that said member is accessible Vfrom the interior In the construction 'shown in said patentit is necessary to makeV each screen with a notch to receive the operating'member and this, obviously,- necessitates Window` screens of special manufacture. By my present invention I have provided a construction'` wherein the same result can be secured,'that 1s, lof
opening and closing the windowfrom Within Y the room without removing or disturbing the screen, but which does not involve any special construction of'screen. a
In order to give an understanding of the invention I have illustrated inthe drawing thereof a. selected embodiment thereof which will now be described after `Which the'novel claims. Y

f The 'Window screen `is indicated generally at and'this is fitted to theinsideofthe' casement frame 2 as usual in Window screens;
8 indicates the lock or latch'for locking the I Window'shut and this is constructed as shown 4-in' the above-mentioned application so 'that it z-f can be manipulated Without'disturbing-.fthe
"Window screen.v For this purpose this `lock or latch 8is pivoted to a bracket 9 that is secured 'to the casement i'rame'224 and Yitco-,operates with a keeper 10 which is fcarried bythe swinging casement Window, the lockor latch Silbeing situated on the insideof thescreen and thus 'be-ing operable While the screen is inf place and without disturbing the screen.
