This document is a typewritten copy of a telegram providing a Press roundup for August 30, 1945. The leading news stories concern the occupation of Japan and De Gaulle's visit to Canada. As the correspondent reports, "Aside from these two items little universality appears, and papers carry enormous variety of features and trivialia [sic]." The correspondent does note, however, that "Most papers report with gusto the 'first listing of war criminals, who will be tried in October'" (p.2)obviously the reason for this telegram's having been included in this section of the Donovan Archive.
