50 YEARS AGO: Employment in the Modesto-Turlock area dropped, totaling 53,975 for December, down 875 from November. The state department of employment credited the rise in the unemployment rate to seasonal lulls in food processing, trucking and retail sales. The department predicted no sign of relief until spring.
