"Estoy muy contenta de estar aqui...." Thus began Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy in the last speech she was to make in public with her husband, the president of the U. S. Mrs. Kennedy's speech in Spanish was received with wild cheers and applause. This took place in Houston, Texas on Nov. 21, 1963, sometime between 8:30 p. m. and 9 p. m. Fifteen hours later an assassin's bullet took the life of John F. Kennedy, first U. S. President ever to become an honorary member of Lulac or to even attend a Lulac function. To the left of the president is John J. Herrera, who served as Master of Ceremonies at the ball and to his left is David Adame. (Lulac News Photo by Gustavo Garza)
