STATE OF DELAWARE

EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT

PROCLAMATION

WHEREAS, Delaware's future in the field of industrial development seems assured, through the many expressions of interested businesses and firms which are seeking sites and buildings within the area; and

WHEREAS, the State may well be proud of its workers, who are noted for their loyalty and devotion to the organizations and firms in which they are employed; and

WHEREAS, the standards of production in the First State have always met with high approval of employers whose wares are marketed throughout the nation and the world; and

WHEREAS, it is an annual custom to set aside one day each year dedicated to those men and women through whose efforts we continue a high degree of productivity which in turn makes our state one of the most prosperous in the nation and which in 1953 again provided us with the highest per capita income in the United States;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, J. Caleb Boggs, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby proclaim that Monday, September 6, 1954, shall be observed as

LABOR DAY

I urge that our national and state flags be displayed in honor of this occasion and that each of us join with workers' organizations, employers and all of those who contribute so much to our well being. May this day be marked with tribute to the continued enterprise and loyalty of our thousands of workers whose daily performance carries the good will of the First State to all lands and all peoples.

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 Thirtieth

(Great Seal) day 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.
