    Rich,

    Here's my read:


    Award (top middle)

    (Left edge vertically) Presented by Asahi Shimbun (Newspaper) Company

    (to) Asahi Shimbun Tosu (City) Franchise

    Takesada Newspaper Store

    (Notes: Asahi means rising sun hence the symbol. Tosu City is in Saga Prefecture located on the NNW part of Kyushu Island.)

    Happy Labor Day,

    Rich,

    This is a calligraphy that has the characters "Smile," "Happiness," and "Meeting."

    I would translate it Cheerful/Happy Encounter. The vertical column says: Written by Lieutenant General Mitaku.

    Unfortunately, cannot tell you LTG MitaKu since his first name is not given.

    Rich,

    Here is what it sez:

    (Character in the middle) Wa/harmony

    Taiki Owakai (Taiki is an abbreviation for the Osaka Electric Railway, a private company that disappeared after the end of WWII; the three characters for owakai are cherry (blossom), harmony and association/club. This would be an organization within the company and probably was sponsored by the company. This name is still popular and used by hospitals, homes for the elderly, businesses, etc.)
