1918-20 - Chris Ludvig Rohne attends Luther College. This the same college that his brother Magnus Rohne attends. 
Chris does not receive a degree but starts his career as a cashier at the local Cranfills Gap bank.  He eventually works his way up to "Banker".  He was probably instrumental in providing loans to local farmers for new equipment, land purchased and other farm improvements.
