STATE OF DELAWARE
WHEREAS, the skill, ingenuity and courage of the American worker and his determination through organization to resist encroachments upon his liberties and to raise the standard of living for himself and his fellow toilers have been major factors in providing the comforts, security and happiness we enjoy today; and
WHEREAS, these benefits are enjoyed to such an extent in no other part of the earth, as is evidenced through continuous reports of spreading deprivation of untold millions in other lands; and
WHEREAS, the Union Label is labor's guarantee of expert craftsmanship and is our assurance that the product was manufactured, or the services rendered, under conditions which will preserve, protect and extend the benefits which have accrued to workers:
NOW, THEREFORE, I, J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby proclaim the week of September 3 to 9, 1956, as
UNION LABEL WEEK
and call upon all citizens to give their full cooperation to this effort to focus attention upon the importance of the Union Label, as an example of fine workmanship, honest endeavor and fair play.
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 Fifth
(Great Seal) day of September in the year of Our Lord One
thousand nine hundred and fifty-six and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and eighty-first.
J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor JOHN N. McDOWELL, Secretary of State
