Calling upon the people of this State to display the National Colors annually on Mother's Day, the second Sunday in May, in honor of the Homes of our State and Country.

WHEREAS, The service rendered the United States by the American mother is a supreme source of the Country's strength and inspiration; and

WHEREAS, we honor ourselves and the mothers of America when we do anything to give emphasis to the home as the fountain head of the State; and,

WHEREAS, the American mother has done, and is doing, so much for the home, the moral uplift and religion, hence so much for goad government, patriotism and humanity,

Therefore be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring therein:

That the Governor of this State is hereby authorized and requested to issue annually a proclamation calling upon the State officials to display the United States flag on all State and School buildings, and the people of the State to display the flag at their homes, lodges, churches and places of business, and other suitable places, on the second Sunday in May, known as Mother's Day, founded by Anna Jarvis, as a public expression of love and reverence for the mothers of our State and the women serving it, and as an inspiration for better homes and closer ties between them and the State.

Approved June 2, A. D. 1920.
