CHAPTER 322 - STATE OF DELAWARE – EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT PROCLAMATION
WHEREAS, the week beginning November 5, 1939 has been designated as American Education Week. There is no observance in our country more significant toward the future of American democracy and the coming generations than our public schools, and
WHEREAS, the general theme this year is "Education for the American Way of Life". The period set apart for American Education Week is the most important annual period of educational interpretation for the nation's schools. It is the time when our schools report to the people in concert.
WHEREAS, during this period many of our citizens will have the opportunity to consider the many important advantages which result from our educational system.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, Richard C. McMullen, Governor of the State of Delaware urge and recommend that State and local authorities cooperate with the civic and religious bodies of our State to secure the most general and unanimous observation of
AMERICAN EDUCATION WEEK
during the period commencing November 5th and ending November 11th, and that teachers in the schools arrange special programs during this time so we may all know more of our present day methods of education.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the said State to be affixed at Dover, this thirtieth day of October in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and thirty-nine and of the Independence of the United States the one hundred and sixty-fourth.
By the Governor:
RICHARD C. McMULLEN
JOSIAH MARVEL, JR., Secretary of State.
