                    in annual sales provides jobs for thousands of citizens and uses
                    nearly 10 per centum of the milk produced by United States dairy
                    farmers, thereby contributing substantially to the economic well-
                    being of the Nation's dairy industry; and
                  Whereas ice cream enjoys a reputation as the perfect dessert and
                    snack food, and over eight hundred and eighty-seven million
                    gallons of ice cream were consumed in the United States in 1983:
                    Now, therefore, be it
                    Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United
                  States of America in Congress assembled. That July 1984, is hereby
                  proclaimed as "National Ice Cream Month", and July 15, 1984, as

                  appropriate ceremonies and activities.
