Hours, weeks, months goes into planning the Northwest Water Carnival each year. The Jaycees put on the biggest event in Detroit Lakes of the summer, and there's always one person -- up until the last 10 years or so anyway -- who answers to the highest rank -- admiral.


Starting in 1935, the Water Carnival has had a leader. That year it was F.C. Schroeder. In 1936, it was Dick Glaholt, in 1937, the event was canceled and then in 1938, Glaholt served as admiral once again.
