WHEREAS the President has specifically called upon the Governors of the several states and territories and all officers and agents of the states and territories, and political subdivisions thereof, and all local boards and agents thereof appointed under the provisions of the Selective Training and Service Act of 1940, as amended, or the Selective Service Regulations prescribed thereunder, to do and perform all acts and services necessary to accomplish effective and complete registration:

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Walter W. Bacon, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby proclaim the following:

1. The fifth registration under the Selective Training and Service Act of 1940, as amended, shall take place in the State of Delaware on the thirtieth day of June, 1942, between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 p. m.

2. Every male citizen of the United States and every other male person, except those exempted by the President's proclamation, is hereby required to present himself for and submit to registration before a duly designated registration official or Selective Service local board in the area in which he has his permanent home, or in which he may happen to be on that day, if such male citizen or other male person has attained the eighteenth or the nineteenth anniversary of the day of his birth on or before June 30, 1942, or the twentieth anniversary of the day of his birth after December 31, 1941, and on or before June 30, 1942,

and has not heretofore been registered under the Selective Training and Service Act of 1940, as amended, and the regulations prescribed thereunder.

3. I call upon the people of the State of Delaware and officers and agents of the State, and any of its political subdivisions, to give all necessary aid and assistance to the Selective Service local boards of the State in conducting a successful registration.

4. I shall deem it a discharge of a patriotic obligation if all newspapers, radio stations, and other disseminators of public information give full and complete publicity to the facts of registration on June 30, 1942, in order that all eligible males will place their names on the Selective Service lists.

5. In order that there may be complete cooperation, I urge all employers and governmental agencies of all kinds to give those under their charge sufficient time in which to fulfill the obligations of registration.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand, and caused the Great Seal of the said State to be hereunto affixed, this tenth day of June, in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred

(GREAT SEAL) and forty-two, and the year of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and sixty-sixth.

By the Governor:

WALTER W. BACON EARLE D. WILLEY, Secretary of State.
