"Passing events." the letter said, "warn of distinct danger In tin use by communism of the media of public Information to propagate its tenets of subversion and violence." MncArthur declared Communist propaganda would have no effect nn most Japanese but the Reds would use the paper to Incite "the irresponsible and lawless minority element. 1 ;." "In these circumstances." he wrote, "it becomes obvious that the free and unrestricted use of Ihe media of public Information for the dissemination of propaganda to such an end by a minority so dedicated In Japan would be a travesty upon the concept of prce freedom, ..."
