March 4 in San Antonio history...

1900
San Antonio has a new fad in the shape of a little trash can the size of a U.S. letter box attached to telephone poles.  They have been put up by a sanitary association.

1920
All but one San Antonio distributor was selling gasoline at 28 cents a gallon, the price advancing in conformity with the recent advace in crude oil from $3 to $3.25 a barrel.

1956
Marjoe, the world's most unusual 12-year-old boy evangelist, will conduct services at the Alamo Revival Center.  Marjoe sings, plays the drums, saxophone, accordion and string bass, and preaches like Billy Sunday.
