As you read, bear in mind the obvious--that the War and the dreadful Thirties and first half of the Forties are long over and nothing herein is meant to disparage any modern civilized nation, state, town, or peoples, but lest we forget...
As the Bard said in The Tempest,
"We were all
sea-swallow'd, though some cast again,
And by that destiny to perform an act
Whereof what's past is prologue, what to come
In yours and my discharge."

*Where an editorial bears an asterisk, the editorial is of uncertain ascription to W.J. Cash. Except where otherwise indicated, however, it is highly probable, given the style and/or subject matter of the editorial, that it is by Cash.
Each link of a particular date accesses all articles of the same date.
There are 5,669 unascribed Cash editorials presently online from November, 1935 through May, 1941. As of December, 2008, about 250 remain.

We are also uploading in Adobe format only the editorial pages from June, 1941 through 1946. As of the end of 2012, the pages through 1945 are online.

BOOK REVIEWS AND BOOK-PAGE EDITORIALS
(Note that Cash's contributions to the Book-Page of The News were quite often broader editorials, having little or nothing to do with books per se or literature in general; it was here that he could write his by-lined editorials and expound more fully on a topic often started more cursorily in the regular editorial column of the paper.)
