WHEREAS, here, in Delaware, wages are now at an all-time high, employment is very close to peak levels and a general pattern of labor peace prevails, affording our economy the opportunity to thrive and prosper; and

WHEREAS, these conditions are due, in large measure, to responsible labor leadership and sound attitudes on the part of management, together with a governmental atmosphere of cordial co-operation; and

WHEREAS, this climate of co-operation between management and labor is being expanded through the apprenticeship and training program, sponsored by the U. S. Department of Labor and insuring the First State adequate trained personnel; and

WHEREAS, it is fitting that the contributions of working men and women to the economy and welfare of our state should be suitably recognized; and

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

THEREFORE, I, J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby proclaim Monday, September 2, 1957, as


and urge the observance of this day by all our citizens with appropriate ceremonies and the display, on all state and public buildings, of the flags of the United States and the State of Delaware.

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 twenty-first day of August in the year of Our Lord one thousand nine hundred and fifty-seven and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and eighty-second.
