[Letter from Albert Armendariz to Frank M. Pinedo - 1955-02-17]

Date: February 17, 1955
Creator: Armendariz, Albert
Description: Onionskin paper carbon copy of letter from Albert Armendariz, League of United Latin American Citizens National Officer, to Frank M. Pinedo, stating that Armendariz no longer wishes to be National Officer of LULAC due to unfair acts committed against members of LULAC. The letter outlines the impeachment of John J. Herrera and David Longoria and mentions the action taken against the LULAC lodge. "It is no longer safe to act on behalf of the Lulac Organization, for the danger of impeachment without a hearing will menace our every action or inaction [...] it pains me greatly to know that our Organization, the Supreme Council, would be guilty of condemning without an opportunity to be heard."

[Letter from F.A. Hernandez to Frank M. Pinedo - 1955-02-03]

Date: February 3, 1955
Creator: Hernandez, F.A.
Description: Letter from F.A. Hernandez, President of League of United Latin American Citizens Council Number 132, to Frank M. Pinedo, asking Pinedo to please "absolve Council No. 132 publicly of any connotation of guilt" in relation to a crime committed by LULAC Council No. 8. According to the letter, LULAC Council 8 Lodge was raided by the Texas Liquor Board, which found the operation of an open saloon at the LULAC lodge. This resulted in a "flow of bad publicity" as well as being "subjected to considerable embarrassment and criticism." Hernandez calls on Pinedo to take swift and "stern corrective measures" to resolve the matter of Council No. 8 to bring order and stability back to other LULAC councils as well as Council No. 132. "We cannot sacrifice our past accomplishments and future goals, because a few deviate from the only known course leading toward our Aims and Purposes."
