TOKYO ROSE (Con&mied from Page 1) lifce an exclusive girls' college than a reforms tory. little has been known of her life. Prison authorities, in keeping with established policy,, have said only that she has been treated like any other prisoner. Her brother, Fred Toguri, a Chicago grocer, disclosed yesterday she has spent a good bit of the time here working in the prison hospital, possibly as a medical technician for which she had some training. The Immigration Service said ^Mrs. D'Aqulno also signed a parole agreement permitting her to go to Chicago, where a deportation hearing would be held at a date as yet undetermined. Before World War n started. Mrs. D'Aquino went to Japan to visit relatives and was married there to Pilipe D'Aquino, a Tokyo newspaper man who holds a Portuguese passport. She remained in Japan during the war and was identified as one of a half dozen Women who staged'the Tokyo Rose broadcasts over the powerful government radio. All the other participants were Japanese. The possible Portuguese citizenship-of her husband, who was born in Japan and remains there, poses one of the problems precipitated oy the deportation action. If Tokyo Rose should be deported, where would she go? Immigration officials say thi« problem will be dealt with after the main question of deportation is settled. They said It is possible Japan may recognize her as a citizen. They suggested it is also possible she became a Portuguese national through her marriage. They are basing the deportation action on a provision of the 1940 nationality statutes which says: "A person who is a national of the United States whether by birth or naturalization shall lose his nationality by ... committing any act oi treason against the United States, if and when he is convicted by a court of competent Jurisdiction."

An observer who might be standing directly under the track of the satellite will have to look fastr— it will travel from Horizon to horizon in from eipht to 12 minutes. The IGY plans to issue a timetable in advance of each satellite launching, to shoiv the time and place • at which the satellite may be expected to be seen. No date has yet been .set.
