October 5 in San Antonio history...


1873
San Fernando Cathedral consecrated and reopened after extensive renovation. The second tower would not be completed until 1902.

1918
The food administration headquarters at the chamber of commerce has a supply of posters urging the saving of fruit pits for use in the manufacture of gas masks.

1945
Both local and long-distance phone service was temporarily suspended here as Telephone Company employees conducted a strike vote.

1958
The University of Mississippi racked up a 21-0 victory over the Trinity Tigers before a disappointing gathering of 6,511 at Alamo Stadium Saturday night. The Rebels, number 6 in the nation, no doubt could have rolled to a larger margin had Coach Johnny Vaught desired to play his first unit a little more.
