STATE OF DELAWARE
WHEREAS, It has become the annual custom of the Delaware Association of Police to sponsor an event in which the youth of our state may pit their competitive skill in the construction and operation of pushmobiles; and
WHEREAS, this most worthy program on the part of our law enforcement officers acts as a great deterrent to juvenile delinquency, and therefore should have the support of every citizen; and
WHEREAS, public spirited men in the state have this year established a permanent pushmobile track near Newark, which will be used for the first time at the Seventh Annual running of these races;
NOW, THEREFORE, I, J. Caleb Boggs, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby set aside Saturday, August 21, 1954, as
PUSHMOBILE DERBY DAY IN DELAWARE
I urge that all of our citizens who possibly can, will attend this outstanding competition, where our young people learn the value of true sportsmanship as taught to them by our law enforcement officers, all of whom serve voluntarily aside from the regular duties in the promotion of activities for our young people.
And be it further resolved that those who assisted in the "Push-A-Buck-Campaign" to raise funds for the construction of a permanent place of competition for our youth be heartily commended for their genuine interest and devoted work in bringing this project to completion.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I, J. Caleb Boggs, 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 Twelfth day
(Great Seal) of August in the year of Our Lord One thousand nine hundred and fifty-four, and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one-hundred and seventy-ninth.
J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor JOHN N. McDOWELL, Secretary of State
