WHEREAS, it is desirable to set aside a week to honor the homemakers of our state, who try to provide a better home life for their families; and

WHEREAS, a good homemaker must be an executive, worker, part-time dietitian and nurse, companion, counselor; and, if she is a mother--a moral and spiritual leader and teacher; and

WHEREAS, the homemaker is interested in her community because it has a great influence on the lives of her family; and

WHEREAS, it is important to encourage other homemakers to emulate this example, and inspire young women to look upon homemaking as a worthwhile career; now

THEREFORE, I, J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby proclaim the week of November 15-21, as


in the State of Delaware, and urge all our people to observe this week with recognition of homemakers, who make a big contribution to our way of life by looking after the health, happiness and morals of their families and their communities.

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 fourth day of November 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.
