Arrested as spy

The photo page of the November 8 1933 edition of the Toronto Daily Star contained these photographs of women arrested in Finland as part of a spy ring.

A search didn’t turn up much, and what I could find was behind paywalls, but it seems that Mary Louise Martin (also referred to as Marie Louise Martin) was the head of a group of Soviet spies. She was sentenced to eight years in prison, and her confederates (presumably including Mrs. Jacobson) were given lesser sentences.
