March 18 in San Antonio history...

1928
Partial organization of a Four Square Gospel Church here to be patterned after the Angelus Temple founded in Los Angeles by Aimee Semple McPherson has been effected by W. E. Cleveland.  A church building for the new congregation has been secured on Pine and Commerce.

1968
A full force of workmen was on the job Monday for the construction of Hemisfair.  Members of Local 93 of the Laborers International Union of America had picketed several jobs last Friday, complaining that some subcontractors were paying less than the prevailing wage.

1976
San Antonio Public Library trustees have decided to open the main library from 1-5 on Sundays if they can get money from the City Council.  A request for $7,000 to fund the extra operating hours through July 31 will be submitted to council, according to library Director Irwin Sexton.  He said if the money is approved, the main library will also be open the same hours on holidays.
