STATE OF DELAWARE
WHEREAS, the week beginning November 6th, 1938, has been designated by National decree as American Education Week, in order to increase interest in all matters of Public Education. This should be an important observance as no institution in our country has more responsibility for the future generation than the Public Schools, and
WHEREAS, it is conceded that Public Education is a means of making the world a better place in which to live; that Public Education is necessary in the development of a Nation, and that many of our evils are corrected in a State having a good system of free Public Schools, and
WHEREAS, during the observance of this period many of our citizens will be given an opportunity of considering the many advantages which arise from this important subject;
NOW, THEREFORE, I, Richard C. McMullen, Governor of the State of Delaware, do recommend that State and local authorities cooperate with the civic and religious bodies in our State, to secure the most general and helpful observance of
AMERICAN EDUCATION WEEK
during the period commencing November 6th and ending November 12th with the thought of acquainting ourselves with our present Educational System.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I, Richard C. McMullen, Governor
of the State of Delaware, have hereunto set my
hand and caused the Great Seal of this State to be
hereunto affixed this Fourth day of November, in
(Great Seal) the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred
and thirty-eight, and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and sixty-third.
By the Governor:
RICHARD C. McMULLEN. CHARLES L. TERRY, JR., Secretary of State.
