75 YEARS AGO: It was reported that the Stanislaus County Farm Production Committee determined there would be a shoratge of labor that would affect the fruit processing plants. The committee’s preliminary estimates showed that the shortage would reduce the cannery output by 50 percent. Members of the committee felt that only men and boys should work in the orchards, thus freeing up women and girl for processing work.
