Jan. 13, 1911: The population of Los Angeles is 319,198, The Times says. In our bustling city, USC fraternity pledges are caught stealing spittoons from hotels … a post office official is accused of taking items from the mail to give to women …. some Mission Indians come to Los Angeles to search record books for information on their tribal lands… and The Times reports on an ailing city employee hidden away in a small room in the tower of City Hall.
The Times’ slogan is: The Best Paper, Read by the Best People.
