In the 1950s each Catholic daily, weekly and monthly journal had its own censor, a sort of spiritual advisor, who had the task of checking the publication for moral correctness. Until 1950 it was not permitted in these magazines to portray a woman wearing a dress with bare shoulders in an advertisement. It was thus possible that the same advertisement on the same day had a quite different appearance in two publications with different religious leanings.
