- Additional text in Transcription. EDITORIAL COMMENT: This was a general letter to all studio heads. Emmanuel Cohen replied 25 April 1934.
Confirming AMPP agreement that each studio provide "a strong man" for the purpose of Production Code enforcement to liaise with Breen - comments on opposition - some of it is constructive criticism - not suggesting "rededication of purpose," but more detailed attention - results will speak for themselves. J.J. McCarthy is appointed as MPPDA liaison with the heads of story departments in the East. Also, Hays requests the appointment of a specialist censorship advisor at each of the studios to liaise with Breen. Fox already has Joy, Universal has Zehner and Paramount has Hammell. Note especially Cohen's comments of the efficacy of Hammell.
