Factors responsible, said the editor of Diario de Costa Rica, include: 1. The press, and he specifi- cally mentioned the New York Times. 2. The state department. 3. The professional revolution- aries.

In both cases it was done with the the- ory that social reformers should not be ridiculed as Commu- nists."
