On this day in 1947… (October 20)

This post is a part of continuing series on the Censored Newspaper Articles (CNAs).

On October 20, 1947, Tokyo Shimbun submitted one article about the launch of “Sakura” –  English written graphical magazine introducing Japan.  The Civil Censorship Detachment(CCD) allowed Tokyo Shimbun to publish the article with a condition to delete some passage.   Click the image to see the CCD documents stored with the Japanese galley.  In the Japanese galley, the deleted section reads “誕生早々バイヤー、[や]GI間に大もてでPXに毎月二万部、米本國にも貿易品として第一号から渡ることになった.” (Prange Call No. 47-loc-1276)

The Prange Collection holds the galley of October 1947 issue of Sakura (Prange Call No. Za39).  See the images below.
