On this day in 1947… (June 14)

In our continuing series on the Censored Newspaper Articles (CNAs), we are featuring articles that were submitted to the Civil Censorship Detachment (CCD) “on this day” in 1947.  Below is a CCD document from June 14, 1947.  The deleted portion states, “Since the advance censorship has been banned…”, which may be a reference to the lifting of pre-censorship by GHQ SCAP.

This censorship document was accompanied by a galley proof of the original Japanese newspaper article (not available here).  The headline on the galley is “光る取締りの眼. 惡の温床ダンスホール” and the censored portion reads, “…内容の事前検閲ができなくなったので….”.
