'Background: Back and side walls are covered with flag blue no seam matting edged with red, white and blue braided silk. Floor is covered with red crystalline cloth and draped over a partial platform in the rear of the window. Display: In the center of the back wall is a map of the United States raised a bit from the wall to make it stand out. All around this map are photographs of 50 Governors, 47 from the States and 3 from the Territories and under these photos are the names and states of all the Governors. Some are place on the platform on the floor in the back with the Chairman of the Conference at one end and the Host at the other. A welcome banner is placed in front behind which is a stand containing a small state flag for each of the 48 states and 4 territories. Remarks: This window is our best so far I believe, from the standpoint of attracting attention and being talked about. The coloring at night is particularly attractive with the two spot lights bringing out the colors quite vividly. We have had many residents call in and stop in to remark on the window and there have been as many as 25 people at one time looking at it out front. It has proven timely for two events, the Governors Conference and the Republican Convention in Philadelphia this week. The majority of the Governors as well as their parties also stopped by to see our display.'
