March 28 in San Antonio history...

1908
T. J. Hickey, of Arizona, an organizer for the Socialist Party, was arrested last night as he was delivering a lecture at Houston and Avenue E.  He was talking about "Frenzied Finance."  Officers said he had no permit.

1948
If population were calculated on the basis of pit privies, San Antonio would be the largest city in Texas.  According to the last count, this city has more than 11,400 privies, about 9,000 more than any other Texas city.

1958
The courthouse had its liveliest awakening in years Saturday as 13 roosters in its basement met the dawn with traditional crows.  They were seized late Friday night in a cockfight in an old gravel pit near Highway 90 West and Kiddy Road.  Also seized was a box of fighting gaffs and a scale for weighing in fighting roosters.
