EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT

PROCLAMATION

WHEREAS, the first Monday of September is traditionally set aside to honor the workers of America; and

WHEREAS, it is fitting that the contributions of working men and women, both organized and unorganized, to the economy and welfare of the State be suitably recognized by its citizens; and

WHEREAS, in a world threatened by an aggressive form of slavery, free American labor has demonstrated that it is a bulwark of strength in the drive of free peoples everywhere in the world for a just and lasting peace:

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Elbert N. Carvel, Governor of the State of Delaware, do proclaim Monday, September 1, 1952, as

LABOR DAY

and urge the observance of this day by all the people of the state in appropriate ceremonies; and I further request that state, county, city and town governments display on that day the flags of the United States and the State of Delaware.

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 Twenty eighth day of August, 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.

(GREAT SEAL)

By the Governor:
