This article published in the Topeka Capital covers the decision to restrict the movement of non-naturalized German American women in Topeka, Kansas, as long as the U.S. was at war with Germany. Non-naturalized women living in, or near, restricted zones were required to obtain a permit from the U.S. Marshall's office in order to continue to reside or conduct business in the restricted zones.
