August 6 in San Antonio history...

1938
A spectacular head-on collision today between two huge fire department pumper trucks racing to a fire sent 10 firemen to San Antonio hospitals, two seriously injured and one near death.

1958
There may be no place like home, but a comfy cot in a cool calaboose was the complaint of Dist. Atty. Jose Ross, who is charged with the prosecution of fathers who refused to support their children. "If they air condition that jail, I'll never be able to get those birds out and to work."

1968
Hemisfair holds the world premiere electric cart rally around the Hemisfair grounds. More of a gimmick than an actual race, it is based on European style road rallies.
