August 8 in San Antonio history...

1908
San Antonio policement made considerable fun of a new school for policemen in Fort Worth. The idea of full-grown husky cops going to school struck the local boys as amusing. Chief Mauermann made it clear that he feels his men need no schooling.

1938
San Antonio taxicab companies today appeared doomed to disappointment in their request for street stands as acting Mayor Phil Wright indicated that he would recommend that the City Council refuse the petition.

1958
A petition signed by 40 leading businessmen concerning the site for the new county jail and police headquarters was presented to the Commissioners Court today. The petition sees the new buildings as a downtown civic center which would render a more efficient and more economical operation.
