WHEREAS, it is fitting that all Delawareans, rural and urban, should recognize their interdependence in contributing to the strength, character and prosperity of our Nation; and

WHEREAS, it is increasingly important that everyone should understand the mutuality of interests of those who live on farms and those who live in cities; and

WHEREAS, the productivity of the farms and of urban labor and business continues to provide the food, the tools, the services, and the goods that afford our citizens the highest standard of living in the world; and

WHEREAS, the Congress of the United States, by joint resolution, and the President of the United States, by appropriate action, have designated the week of November 22-28 as National Farm-City Week; now

THEREFORE, I, J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby proclaim the week of November 22-28, 1957, as


and request that the State Board of Agriculture, the Agricultural Extension Service, the University of Delaware, Delaware State College and all other appropriate agencies and officials of state government cooperate with National, State and local farm organizations and groups in preparing and carrying out programs for the observance of this special week. I also request that urban groups join in this observance as evidence of our appreciation of the efforts of those on the farms and in the cities in providing us with the food, fiber and products we all now enjoy.

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 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
