100 YEARS AGO: Through the efforts of the entertainment committee of the Chamber of Commerce, led by S.P. Elias, it was arranged for a group of dentists, heading to the Yosemite Valley for a conference by train, to make their only stop in Modesto. The committee members were to meet dentists at the train and present to each of them a glass of lemonade and ice cream cones with slips of paper reading, “Modesto Welcomes the Tooth Pullers.”
