Since preparation and planning of the proper observance of a 75th anniversary entails much time and work, it was well that Roy Solberg, president of the Commercial Club, laid the ground work in 1956 for the organization which is now functioning in presenting this Jubilee. After taking the office of president of this civic club in 1957 Carrol Torgerson has shouldered the responsibility which this position necessitates.
