EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT

PROCLAMATION

WHEREAS, the United States Committee for Refugees accomplishes a work of compassion which appeals to the hearts of Americans and merits public recognition; and

WHEREAS, it is shocking to realize that today the world still feels the dislocation of the greatest war in history; and

WHEREAS, despite efforts to ameliorate this condition by numerous benevolent agencies, there are still more than 21/2 million displaced people; and

WHEREAS, effective participation in the work of the U. S. Committee for Refugees must be based on the full support of the American people; now

THEREFORE, I, J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby join President Eisenhower in proclaiming the period July 1, 1959 to June 30, 1960, as

WORLD REFUGEE YEAR

and I commend its observance to the people of this state.

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-eighth day of December 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.
