A wheel on a locomotive broke, derailling the engine and two cars of an I.&G.N. train near San Antonio.

1907
More skyscrapers will do more to advertise San Antonio than anything else that can be suggested.

1935
Sheriff Albert West went on vacation and bookie joints and gambling houses opened all over the city.

1936
Church officials were preparing today to direct the removal of the altar of San Fernando Cathedral in the hope that excavation beneath the floor of the church might produce the bones of the Alamo heroes.
