LABOR DAY PROCLAMATION
One of the holidays set apart by the national and state law
for general observance is Labor Day, and no holiday is more
typically American, and this day is calculated to bring our people
to a serious realization of the rights, duties and privileges of
the American people.
Upon the workman in the shop, factory and on the farm
depends for weal or woe the structure of civilization, and it is
in this degree that man secures his rights, and as he performs
the duties which fall to his lot progress is made among things
that insure to our country's greatness and moral welfare.
Knowing that the nation possesses no better asset than men
and women who ,earn their daily bread by the sweat of their
brow, there is nothing more fitting than on this day we should
lay aside our everyday employment and join in a proper and
fitting celebration.
Now, therefore, I, L. F. Johnson, mayor of the City of
Bemidji, Minnesota, do hereby designate and set apart Monday,
September Sixth, Nineteen Hundred Twenty, as Labor Day, and
ask that all our people join and make it a day of cheer and
enjoyment. I would ask that all our workshops, factories and
mills be closed for the day, and would ask that all business
places be closed between the hours of 10 a. m. and 2 p. m.
L. F. JOHNSON, Mayor.
