This document consists of three scraps of paper taped to a blank sheet. The first two scraps are a typewritten copy of a news item reporting Australia's intention to investigate Japanese war atrocities and to prosecute all Japanese war criminals regardless of standing or rank. The third scrap is a typewritten copy of a news item reporting China's support of Australia's contention that Japanese Emperor Hirohito should be prosecuted as a war criminal. This item looks forward to China's becoming a market for Australian goods once exported to Japan.
