DF.CI.AKKU PUH1.IC HOLIDAYS.
Now, therefore, 1. Elliot W. Ma
jor, governor of the state of Missouri,
do hereby set apart Wednesday and
Thursday, August 20 and 2 r, 1913,
for road work in Missouri, and
designate these two days as "Good
Road Days," and declare same
public holidays and request that all
other business be suspended as far
as possible, and that every able
bodied citizen labor upon the public
ighways of the state those two days,
and that the work performed be such
as will make a lasting and permanent
improvement, such as road grading,
ditching, graveling, dragging, etc.
I call upon the county court of
each county to issue a proclamation,
calling upon thc people to turn out
and labor, and see to it that thc
county is fully and completely or
ganized, so the work will reach to
every neighborhood, and be con
ducted in a systematic and business
way, to the end that when the sun
shall have set the second day there
will be left no community in all the
state where the hand of progress
aud toil has not left its mark in
permanent road improvement, and
the progressive spirit its impress in
the hearts and minds of the people.
I call upon the country and the
city press to assist in organizing and
bringing to the roads for work an
army of labor volunteers, grander far
than the brilliant pageantry of mar
tial splendor, and whose song of
progressive achievements will be
sweeter than the rattle of arms.
CAI.I.S ROAD ORGANIZATIONS TO AID.
I also call upon the road overseers,
road associations, commercial and
booster clubs of the common-wealth
to give us their active and united sup
port in carrying to a successful com
pletion this undertaking.
Let the women of Missouri share
iu the work and glory. I therefore
call upon them to prepare dinners
and see that they arc served to the
laborers along the way. These two
good road days will mark a new
epoch in thc history of Missouri,
and in our zeal for road building, it
will be the most stupendous two
days' public work ever given in the
history of the republic and will stand
unequaled, unique and absolutely
Let every Missourian show by his
work he is for the internal improve

we may enjoy the fruits today and
our children a fuller fruition to
morrow. There is no more certain
way of advancing our state and inter
ests of all than through our roads.
