PROCLAMATION

Whereas, in Delaware we are blessed with one of the Na tion's highest per capita incomes; and

Whereas, the labor-management relationship in our State is such that it assures continued economic growth as well as maintaining a high level of employment; and

Whereas, the American worker, through his skill and ingenuity, strives to raise the standard of living for everyone; and

Whereas, it is fitting that the vital contributions of work ing men and women to the welfare of the State be suitably recog nized; and

Whereas, the first Monday in September i s additionally set aside to honor America's labor force;

Now, therefore, I, Russell W . Peterson, Governor of the Sta te of Delaware , do hereby proclaim Monday, September 7, 1970, as

LABOR DAY

in Delaware, and I urge all residents of The First State to join me in saluting our labor force with appropriate observances. I order that the American Flag and the flag of the State of Dela ware be properly displayed from all government and public build ings on this day.

Further, I urge that all motorists drive with their headlights on from noon Friday, September 4, through Monday, September 7, u s ing low beams during daylight hours to forcefully remind us of the mounting high way accidents resulting in far too many fatalities.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I, Russell W. Peterson, 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 fourteenth day of August in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and seventy, and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and ninety-fifth.
