STATE OF DELAWARE
WHEREAS, it is right and proper that our citizens should express thanks for the American way of life, and show their continued devotion to the principles of our Founding Fathers; and
WHEREAS, it is fitting that these citizens should by peaceful assembly call attention to these God-given rights and proclaim publically their opposition to all subversive groups and anti-American influences; and
WHEREAS, the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States, acting on the slogan "Loyalty--Our First Line of Defense," has urged that a week be set aside dedicated to these premises:
NOW, THEREFORE, I, Elbert N. Carvel, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby proclaim the week of April 27, 1952, as
in Delaware, and urge all citizens to stand up and be counted as Loyal Americans at such ceremonies as will effectively mark this observance in each of our Counties throughout the State.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I, Elbert N. Carvel, Governor of the State of Delaware, have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the said State to be hereunto affixed at Dover this First day of April, in the Year of Our Lord, One Thousand Nine Hundred and Fifty-two, and of the Independence of the United States of America, the One Hundred and Seventy-sixth.
By the Governor:
ELBERT N. CARVEL
HARRIS B. McDOWELL, JR., Secretary of State.
