75 YEARS AGO: C. F. Olinger, a member of the statewide flood control committee, talks flood damage to Newman Exchange club members at their monthly luncheon. Olinger illustrates where Stanislaus County has suffered over $500,000 in flood damage in which 33,000 acres of land have been inundated. The committee plans to present an outline for repair at the next meeting.
