STATE OF DELAWARE

EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT

PROCLAMATION

WHEREAS, it is necessary to employ every possible man and woman to meet the needs of our ever-expanding economy; and

WHEREAS, it has been proven that specially trained and equipped handicapped persons are real assets when placed on jobs for which they have been rehabilitated and educated; and

WHEREAS, it is the purpose of the Governor's Committee for Employment of the Handicapped to find specific jobs for those ready to assume self-reliance through employment; now

THEREFORE, I, J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor of the State of Delaware, set aside the week of October 4 through 10, 1959, as

NATIONAL EMPLOY THE HANDICAPPED WEEK

During this week I call upon all our citizens, organizations, newspapers and radio stations to continue the program of education which will eventually lead to more employment for handicapped person.

I further hope that the slogan "Hiring the Handicapped is Good Business" will become more meaningful for our employers throughout the state and that special effort will be made to place handicapped persons on-the-job to assist in greater productivity for our economy.

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

(GREAT SEAL)
