Laguna Beach Communists?

Came across this in a Judge’s opinion from the early 1930s:

“Harris, painter and decorator, board president, addressing the Rotary Club here, said: “Why should kids save, anyway? We are going to have old-age pensions, and kids should spend their money and let the government take care of them when they are old.’ Laguna Beach includes several hundred Communists, some of whom are movie stars who commute the fifty-seven miles daily to Hollywood.”
