Life in Lodi 85 years ago in May 1920 was a mix of news about post-World War I conditions of gas, sugar and farm labor shortages, a new organ at the Methodist Church, two Acampo moonshiners and the arrest of a judge for turning his automobile in the middle of a street.

On Saturday, May 1, 1920, the Lodi Sentinel carried news about a political rally to be held that night for Republican presidential candidate Herbert Hoover supporters at the Beckman-Thompson Hall. About 300 turned out to hear speeches about "Hooverizing your politics" in the effort to get voters to select Hoover as their nominee for president in the primary election the next week. As it turned out, Lodi voted nearly three to one in favor of rival candidate Sen. Hiram W. Johnson on the May 4 primary.
