Whereas, in Delaware, we are signally blessed with one of the Nation's highest per capita incomes indicative of a thriving economy; and

Whereas, the skill, ingenuity and courage of the American worker and his determination to raise the standard of living for himself and his associates have been major factors in providing the high standards of living which we presently enjoy; and

Whereas, the generally good labor-management relationship in our State assures continuation of our economic growth and also the attainment of new highs in employment and personal income; and

Whereas, it is fitting that the contributions of working men and women to the economy and welfare of our State should be suitably recognized; and

Whereas, the first Monday in September is traditionally set aside to honor the workers of America;

Now, therefore, I, Charles L. Terry, Jr., Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby proclaim Monday, September 2, 1968, as


and I order that the flag of the United States of America and the flag of the State of Delaware shall be properly displayed from all public buildings on this day, and I urge the observance of this clay by all our citizens with appropriate ceremonies.

Further, I invite everyone to join me in saluting those whose daily work makes possible the abundant life we all enjoy. I also request that all motorists drive with their headlights on from 3 p.m. Friday, August 30th through Monday, September 2nd, using low beams during the daylight hours, to forcefully remind us of the mounting highway accidents leading to far too many fatalities.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I, Charles L. Terry, Jr., 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 30th clay of August in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and sixty-eight, and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and ninety-third.


By the Governor:
