[Draft of article by John J. Herrera - 1956-10-22]

[Draft of article by John J. Herrera - 1956-10-22]

Date: October 22, 1956
Creator: Herrera, John J.
Description: Onionskin paper carbon copy draft of an article by John J. Herrera dated October 22, 1956. This article was Herrera's rebuttal to Felix Tijerina's article on support of the Eisenhower-Nixon administration. "We have bitterly realized in their past administrations that we were the last to be hired and the first to be hired. We will continue to support the Democratic party and their nominees, Stevenson and Kerauver." Herrera also writes: "the great majority of the Latinos do not share his enthusiasm for the Republican Party, as 97 percent of the Latinos work for a living and do not own their business (as Mr. Tijerina does), or are professional people." At the top of this article in Spanish, there is a note which reads as such in English: "(Note: Despite certain Mexican 'leaders' knowing that Nixon 'was of the tricky politics' since October of 1956 many here in Houston on the radio or the TV begged 'Now more than ever four more years of Nixon': The least they should do is now after the failure, is to ask for forgiveness from the people before continuing to make recommendations on who to vote for."
