Description: Copy of a telegram and articles from Danny Olivas to Pete Tijerina dated October 23, 1956 which include a telegram from Olivas to Tijerina: "We are not endorsing the Ike Dick Slate." Above the telegram, there are two articles and a telegram copied onto a piece of paper. One article with Felix Tijerina expressing his support for the Eisenhower-Nixon administration. The other article was John J. Herrera's rebuttal to Tijerina's 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 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."
