During this week our home builders plan an exhibit to show the progress in their field, and it is my hope that this attempt to inform the public of housing opportunities, will be well received.
I further urge that all of us extend our gratitude to the state's home builders during this week mentioned above for having kept abreast of housing needs and having fulfilled their mission in providing attractive, adequate and economical facilities for our Delaware people.
