The news was confirmed regarding the sale, by order from Tokyo, of the TVT and Roces Publications to the Manila Simbunsya, a subsidiary of the Osaka Mainichi.

According to an official announcement from Tokyo, the imperial army has assigned the publication of dailies and magazines in occupied areas to leading publishing houses in Japan. The Asahi has taken over the newspaper in Java now called Djawa; the Formuiri in Burma; and the Domei in Malaya, Sumatra and Borneo.

What the Press does not explain is the manner by which the transactions were made, which of course, could easily be speculated on.
