WHEREAS, Saturday, October 4, 1958, has been designated as "National Newspaperboy Day" in fitting tribute to the 600,000 American youths who are preparing for their role as "leaders of tomorrow" by being newspaperboys today; and

WHEREAS, thousands of leaders in government, business and the professions received their first training in our American principles of free enterprise while serving newspaper routes in their youth; and

WHEREAS, it is no accident that these leaders achieved success, since the personal qualities that help a boy to serve a newspaper route efficiently are the same personality traits that contribute to his success as he goes through life; and

WHEREAS, as young men in business for themselves, newspaper boys learn the beneficial qualities of loyalty, dependability, honesty and thrift, a background which no other leisure-time activity can give them; now

THEREFORE, I, J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor of the State of Delaware, in recognition of the more than 1400 news-paperboys in this state, do hereby proclaim October 4, 1958 as


in Delaware, and urge the citizens of our state to join in this salute to the young men who keep us informed by their daily delivery of the world's events to our front doors.

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-ninth day of September in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and fifty-eight and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and eighty-third.


J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor

GEORGE J. SCHULZ, Secretary of State
