* Hirohito - Emperor of Japan

The front page has a three column photo with heading: "Supreme Allied Chief Receives Japanese Ruler" (see images) Also a two column heading: "Japanese Try to Minimize Hirohito Call on M'Arthur" First report coverage continues on page 4. This is a somewhat famous photo shortly after the end of World War II and this was when it was first made public. This was unprecedented. In Japanese culture, people went to the emperor – not the other way around.
