I request the Department of Agriculture, the land-grant universities and colleges, the cooperative extension services, and all other appropriate agencies and officials of the Government to cooperate with National, State, and local farm organizations and other groups in preparing and carrying out programs for the appropriate observance of National Farm-City Week, including public meetings, discussions, exhibits, pageants, and press, radio, and television features, with special emphasis on the interdependence of producers, processors, distributors, and consumers of agricultural products. I also request urban groups to join in this observance along with farm groups, as evidence of America's appreciation of all those on the farms and in the cities who provide us with our daily bread and other necessities of life. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States of America to be affixed.
