OK, disregarding the last message from V, which is completely off topic and
is totally meant to be trollish...

I also checked a bunch of online academic-institution subscriptions with no
success.

As to Aaron's inquiry:

*You could attempt to write Mainichi, perhaps
under the guise of a researcher or something academic sounding, and see if
they could provide the text.  And then you could share with the rest of
us.  Sound like a plan?*

Luckily this is for academic research, and while I could be all
記事を出していただけないでしょうか?, I don't think my Japanese honorific skills are up to par
to contact the Shinbun directly. I do, however, have a professorial contact
at my former university who has access to Harvard's archives of Japanese
newspapers, so perhaps I can go through her. I'm a bit low on bandwidth at
the moment, but if I get the chance, I'll let y'all know.
