February 13 in San Antonio history...

1911
A change which augurs well for the comfort of weary travelers between San Antonio and Corpus Christi will be made when 16 section standard sleepers are installed on the Davy Crockett night trains on the SA & AP.

1916
In an effort to reduce accidents, all slow-moving traffic will be compelled to keep to the right-hand curb on downtown streets.  Buggies and wagons can't compete with fast-moving autos.

1952
Hotelman Nicky Hilton, in San Antonio for the Texas Open, wasn't saying much about his headlined romance with starlet Betsy Von Furstenberg.  [Hilton is the granduncle of celebutantes, Paris & Nicky Hilton.]
