CHAPTER 355 - STATE OF DELAWARE - EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT PROCLAMATION
WHEREAS, the National Safety Council is conducting a nation-wide campaign to cut down the huge December traffic toll, which last year exceeded all months with a cost of 3,540 lives; and
WHEREAS, this slaughter on our streets and highways is due not only to bad weather conditions, but to the very rush and geniality of the Christmas holiday season;
THEREFORE, I, Richard C. McMullen, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby call upon every citizen to do his part in this drive to stop traffic tragedy by exercising unusual care during this extra hazardous month, so that Christmas joy shall reign untouched by sorrow.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of this State to be affixed at Dover this fifth clay of December, in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and forty, and of the Independence of the United States the one hundred and sixty-fifth.
By the Governor:
RICHARD C. McMULLEN
JOSIAH MARVEL, JR., Secretary of State
