WHEREAS, it is proper that we honor the homemakers--commonly called housewives--of our state because in this period of great tension they can and do exert within our individual and community life a great influence, and contribute to the stability of our populace; and

WHEREAS, it is fitting during the Thanksgiving season as we give thanks for the blessings that have been bestowed upon us, that we include in our thoughts and prayers all those homemakers to whom we look for spiritual guidance, daily nourishment and constant loyalty, and for the proper training of our future citizens; now

THEREFORE, I, J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby set aside the period from November 17 to 23, 1957, as


in the State of Delaware, and call upon all citizens, schools and organizations to observe this period in a proper manner. We should pay tribute to those homemakers who try to improve the health, happiness and morals of their families. I also urge all other homemakers or housewives to emulate their example.

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 Seventh day of November 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.


J. CALEB, BOGGS, Governor

JOHN N. McDOWELL, Secretary of State
