March 5 in San Antonio history...

1731
Mission Nuestra Señora de la Purísima Concepción de Acuña is founded.

1950
By 1960, 1970 and 1980, weapons capable of striking from as far away as 5,000 miles will be available, according to British scientist, A.M. Low, in town for a speaking engagement with the Optimist Club.

1960
A San Antonio construction worker, Valentine Gomez, was saved by fellow workers after being buried under tons of dirt when a 12-foot deep ditch  at the freeway storm sewer project in the 1600 block of North Hackberry caved in on him.  Other workers tunneled through the dirt, threw Gomez a rope and pulled him to safety about 25 minutes later.
