CHAPTER 470

STATE OF DELAWARE

EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT

PROCLAMATION

WHEREAS, men at work represent buying power and buying power maintains Delaware's business and industry; and

WHEREAS, there are some 15,000 unemployed workers in Delaware; and

WHEREAS, this high rate of unemployment is a waste of human resources which tends to hold back a more rapid rise in Delaware's economy; and

WHEREAS, our State Employment Service is seeking to overcome this unemployment problem by conducting, through its three job placement offices, an intensive "Hire Now!" job-finding campaign; and

WHEREAS, our employment staff estimates there are manifold instances where our employers in business and industry have need for additional personnel but for one reason or another have not crystallized their decisions to hire these needed workers now; and

WHEREAS, concerted action by such employers to hire now would mean prompt re-employment for thousands of our citizens and consequent increased purchasing power, increased profits and would benefit our entire economy,

NOW, THEREFORE, I, ELBERT N. CARVEL, as Governor of the State of Delaware, call upon the entire business community of the State to cooperate in this campaign by listing all possible job needs now with the nearest State Employment Service office and by hiring the people they need now in order to realize for themselves and for all our citizens the promise of the campaign slogan: "When They Work—you Profit. Hire Now!"

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I, Elbert N. Carvel, 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 eleventh day of May in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and sixty-one and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and eighty-fifth.
