A PROCLAMATION Friday, July fourth, will be the 165th anproer-arv of freedom in our country and it is entirely fitting that every American pause’for rededication to the liberty, freedom and independence proclaimed on July 4, 1776, in Philadelphia. x. , The national office of Civilian Defense, throupfh F. H. La Guardia, director, has planned for a rededication ceremony to be held^ on the afternoon of July fourth throughout the country. It will occur at four p. m., eas tern standard time, and will be featured by an address by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, after which the U. S. Marine band will play the national anthem. Follow ing the anthem the President of the United States will lead all citizens in repeating the oath of allegiance to the United States. A rededication of each and everj’ one df us to defend and preserve the inalienable rights so well expres.sed by patriots on July 4, 1776, is of tremendous importance at this time when liberty and justice have been banished from so much of the earth. I respectfully ask that as a part of this great nation wide movement we pau.se on July fourth, at the appoint ed hour, have a radio turned on and join in the simul taneous declaration for perpetuation of liberty through out America.
