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.
