Presently, there are 736 editorials from the first half of 1940; about ten more will be added, for Jan. 25 and Jan. 28. (Because of uncertain attribution to W. J. Cash, about 70 additional editorials were omitted from May and June, 1940. They also will be subsequently added.) All dates marked "+" were added July, 2001; those marked "|F|" through "|Je|" were added February through June, 2002; those marked "{Aug}", added August, 2005; those marked "╣Jan╠", "╣Feb╠", "╣Mar╠", "╣May╠", "╣Jun╠", "╣Jul╠", "╣Aug╠", "╣Sept╠", and "╣Oct╠" added January-March, May-October, 2007; those marked ╬Mar╬, ╬Apr╬, added March-April, 2008. Full page marked ï)Jun(ð, added June, 2010. Articles marked "*" are of probable but uncertain attribution to Cash. Last additions, April, 2008.

The referent "[c]" indicates a corrected editorial in August, 2005, filling in previously indiscernible words or passages.

Missing from the extant microfilm records of the newspaper for the first half of 1940 are the following 4 dates:

Jan. 1, 2;
Feb. 15, 23.

Because for some time we have not as yet been updating editorials to the subject divisions, beginning in 2005 we are adding subject notations to the additions to the chronological listings:

"W"=War in Europe and Generally;
"WP"=War in the Pacific;
"IP"=International Politics;
"NP"=National Politics;
"SL"=State and Local Politics;
"G"=General Subjects.
