ST WOMAN SERVED THE JAPS Mrs. Velvalee Dickinson, 50 years old, has been sentenced to serve ten years in prison by a Federal judge in New York upon her plea of guilty to a charge of violating the censorship law. The Government charged that she was an agent through whom the Japanese were to secure naval information, that she -was paid "over $60,000," by the Japanese, and that, as late Thanksgiving, 1941, she "could have given our Government incontestable proof that the Japanese were expecting to be at war with the United States in a few days." It sems almost imposible to believe that a woman, a citizen of this country, would have been willing to serve the Japanese at the expense of her country. While she pleaded guilty to violating the censorship law, the Government dismissed an espionage charge because the evidence could not be brought out in open court without endangering the national security.
