CASE 9, 2nd FLOOR, item 1

Perales Circus Has Arrived from San Antonio, Texas –
Shows in McAllen, Pharr, Mercedes, Harlingen, Edinburg and Mission

The goat circus presents for the entertainment of the public the clown Perales, who comes from San Antonio promoting a political campaign in favor of the $425,000.00 goat (fattened in the valley) and telling our people to vote against the town people's candidate, Judge Yarborough, because Yarborough wants to represent Latin-Americans and veterans.

This little clown has always insisted on serving as an instrument so that the Latin-Americans and the veterans don't receive representation in Texas. Thirty days ago he came speaking against a Mexican-Texan to take from him a public post and now he comes speaking against representation for the Mexican-Texans.

If you want to entertain yourselves, take your children to the circus this evening and you shall see the clown claw his hands, twist his head, twist his mouth, and act like a puppet to the rhythm of 30 coins. After the meeting, tell him that you shall vote for YARBOROUGH, because he is the town people's candidate.

There will be popcorn, candy, balloons and free soft drinks at the circus tonight.
