August 31 in San Antonio history...

1731
First recorded baptism in the parish of San Fernando, Ignacia Agustina Munoz y Morillo.

1898
A party who read in the Sunday Light the proposition of the doctors to be allowed right-of-way when calling on patients, suggests that they be compelled to put gongs on their vehicles to prevent accidents.

1928
San Antonio's first talking picture, "The Perfect Crime," will open at the [old] Majestic Theatre tomorrow. It is not a conglomeration of noises, but a dialogue spoken so you can understand it. Clive Brook and Irene Rich star.
