Blood Mixture Cause of Deportation


May 15 (AP) For lack of an additional one per cent of British blood, two young Pacific war brides who married Hawaii veterans of the Second World War face deportation.

Both women are half British, but they are not 51 per cent Caucasian of a mixture of races eligible for United States citizenship.

Monica Dias, 18 is half British and half Polynesian and Lena White, 24 is half British and half Samoan.
