March 6, 1908
Fritz Kreisler and ostriches, with the White Sox thrown in. No shortage of things to do in 1908 Los Angeles ... Below, in an ideal world The Times would have packaged its three stories about red activists, two on the cover of the second section and one inside. All are worth reading. One talks about immigration agents targeting socialists and malcontents--native and foreign-born. In another, a fire official traveling with the White Sox talks about revolutionaries in Chicago. The third reports on a meeting of activists. To be sure, the writing is incredibly slanted. But the account is vivid and immediate.
