All 1947 editorials are after W. J. Cash's associate editorship. Stuart Rabb became Associate Editor after Cash resigned at the end of May, 1941 and continued in that capacity for a year at which point, at the end of May, 1942, Burke Davis became Associate Editor. At the end of December, 1942, Editor J. E. Dowd enlisted in the Navy and turned over the editorial reins of the newspaper to Burke Davis until August 18, 1944, at which point Mr. Davis resumed his position as Associate Editor, thereby responsible for most of the editorial column. On October 6, 1945, Harry Ashmore became Associate Editor, and Burke Davis, eventually to join The Baltimore Evening Sun, became special assignments writer. In 1958, Mr. Ashmore won a Pulitzer Prize as Editor of The Arkansas Gazette, for his editorials and leadership regarding the Little Rock school integration crisis of September, 1957.

On January 9, 1947, The News was sold by the Dowds to a group of investors, including W. C. Dowd, Jr. and J. E. Dowd. Thomas L. Robinson became Publisher, J. E. Dowd became General Manager, and Harry Ashmore remained as Associate Editor until April 16, 1947. Mr. Ashmore at that time became Editor of the newspaper, and then left The News on July 26, 1947 to become Associate Editor of The Gazette. William M. Reddig, formerly of The Kansas City Star, then became Editor.

There are no Sunday editions of the newspaper in 1947. Weeks labeled (?͏͏☼JAN◙͏), (?͏͏☼FEB◙͏), (?͏͏☼MAR◙͏), (?͏͏☼APR◙͏), (?͏͏☼MAY◙͏), (?͏͏☼JUN◙͏), (?͏͏☼JUL◙͏), (?͏͏☼AUG◙͏),(?͏͏☼SEP◙͏), (?͏͏☼OCT◙͏), (?͏͏☼NOV◙͏), and (?͏͏☼DEC◙͏) were added in the denoted month of 2014. Dates marked "&$O'Ð♪" have a website note on editorials. (If you want to know the significance of the hieroglyph, you will have to ask the website publisher. We have no idea.) Last additions, December, 2014.

The following date is missing from the microfilm of 1947: November 29. The News did not publish on Christmas Day.

To facilitate reading organization, the headings of the editorials on the pages after June 19, 1944 are in bold print, visible in the "Engravers Bold" font, which on later versions of Windows is not included as a font. Blame Mr. Gates, not us. The font is available here for free. Once downloaded, simply click "install" at the top of the box and it will quickly load.
