Sept. 4, 1919: "Somebody Is Always Taking the Joy Out of Life" by Clare Briggs (1875-1930). I would imagine the anti-union message resonated with The Times' editorial policy.

Sept. 4, 1919, Horse
Turner Hall at 321 S. Main St. becomes the Los Angeles Men's Club, a "dry saloon" mainly for servicemen returning from World War I ... A horse frightened by a piece of paper runs away with a wagon that is "smashed to splinters" at Alameda Street and Florence Avenue, injuring four young passengers.
