STATE OF DELAWARE
WHEREAS, accidents caused by indifference and thoughtlessness continue to rob the nation of the lives and services of thousands of farm residents each year; and
WHEREAS, the number of these unnecessary casualties can be greatly reduced by the exercise of caution and intelligent effort on the part of each farm family; and
WHEREAS, the conservation of manpower and property is vital to national defense:
NOW, THEREFORE, I, Elbert N. Carvel, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby call upon the citizens of our State to observe the week of July 20, 1952, as
NATIONAL FARM SAFETY WEEK
and I urgently request every farm resident to cooperate in carrying out effective safety measures. I also request all organizations and persons interested in farm life to join with the Delaware Safety Council, in a campaign to emphasize the importance of developing attitudes toward safety which will help prevent accidents on the farm and elsewhere.
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 Eleventh day of July 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-seventh.
