MRS. DICK GOES TO RENO

New York Times

Her Secretary Refuses to Comment on Divorce Report
---
Mrs. William K. Dick, widow of the late John Jacob Astor, who was lost in the Titanic disaster, left last night for Reno.

At her home at 7 East Eighty-fourth Street Mrs. Dick's secretary declined to discuss published reports that Mrs. Dick's departure was the first step in a plan to divorce her second husband.

Mrs. Dick was married to her first husband in 1911. A son, John Jacob Astor Jr., was born to her a short time after Mr. Astor's death the following year. In 1916 she was married to Mr Dick, a childhood fiancé, sacrificing a great part of the fortune left to her by Mr. Astor. Mr. and Mrs. Dick have two sons, William R. [sic] Jr., and John H. Dick.
