SeventyFifth Anniversary celebration is now like the events of the years that led up to history It is scarcely necessary to waste adjectives and superlatives on this celebration for those who attended which to judge by tlje magnitude of the crowds included everybody in Mason City and nearly everybody in northern Iowa The celebration was in brief a huge success In the be ginning there was the idea and to give credit where credit is due the idea was first sponsored by the official staff of the Chamber of Commerce Then there was careful plan ning and layifigbf groundwork by a limited number of in terested men and women But all this would have gone for nothing or at best for a half hearted success except for one thing That one thing was the teamwork of the whole bloomin town The folks who worked or rode on floats as well as those who financed them the folks who marched the bandsmen band boys and girls the various committees and above all else to the spirit of the town which took the celebration to its heart and made the cause its The spirit that cheered and applauded the various floats the spirit that groaned when it rained Monday evening the spirit which scanned the skies anxiously all Wednesday afternoon waiting for the clouds to clear away and the rain to stop pulling for this to happen and believing confidently that it it did In the beginning the men who proposed the Seventy Fifth Anniversary celebration gave as their purpose the de sire to resell Mason City to itself No on can remember the events of the last three days without believing That these men and
