May 21 in San Antonio history...

1908
Within less than a week, the deadly six-shooter has claimed three victims in Texas.  It would seem about time we quit that sort of thing.

1918
The pasteurization of all milk sold in San Antonio is to be required under new regulations to be issued by the U.S. Public Health Service.  The cost to dairies of installing the necessary equipment will be considerable.

1958
Chuck Jefferson, Woodridge School third grader, was homeward bound with $32,000 he won on the "$64,000 Question" TV show.  "I wanted to go on (for $64,000), but my parents decided I should quit.  It's too big of a risk.  Sometimes I think parents are too nervous."
