December 15 in San Antonio history...

Street dancing and a colorful parade on the San Antonio River were among the attractions tentatively added to the schedule of opening day festivities at the Fiesta de San Jacinto.

The new ultra-modern science hall of Incarnate Word College was ready for use. Dedication ceremonies were held, attended by Francis Cardinal Spellman, archbishop of New York and military vicar of the U.S. Armed Forces.

The 10-cent comic book joined the ranks of the deposed 5-cent cigar, nickel glass of beer and the cigar store Indian. Dell comic books on San Antonio newsstands went up to 15 cents.

The University of the Texas Medical School at San Antonio submitted an application for $16,016,134 in federal funds for construction of a new dental school to the Department of Health, Education and Welfare.
