December 10 in San Antonio history...

1920
San Antonio had close to 18,000 soldiers, more than four times as many as the year before.

1940
Proponents of the council-manager form of municipal government opened their final week of campaigning. A special election was scheduled for Dec. 17, when the proposal was to be submitted to a vote.

1970
San Antonio's three major railroads remained idle despite orders from national leaders of three striking unions to send their men back to work. A fourth union, the Brotherhood of Railway and Airline Clerks, had not yet issued a back-to-work order.
