To give ini|etus to this clean up movement, and to encourage those engaged therein, I, Frank Byrne, governor of the State of South Dakota, do hereby designate the week of May 1 to 6„ inclusive as Clean-Dp Week and ask the people of the state during that week to give thought to, and take part in a general clean up campaign. The springtime, when nature is taking on a new garb, is especially appropriate for cleaning, renovat ing, renewing and beautifying. Let us give nature a chance by re I moving the repellant and hazard ous refuse and debris accumulated by our carelessness. Let us clean up the streets and alleys, the cor nets and angles about buildings and the yards and spaces surround ing our homes, using a little fresh paint where needed, and thus add to the attractiveness, comfort and security of our surroundings.
