May 24 in San Antonio history...

1898
The citizens residing on Main are complaining about the disagreeable dust arising from the street.  It is macadamized with white soft rock and that part of it which has become pulverized is especially injurious to the eyes.

1918
The tornado season is now at hand.  San Antonio has no tornadoes, our worst blows being Gulf breezes every afternoon.

1958
Those viewing "The Brothers Karamazov" at the Broadway Theater are nearly all making the discovery that Karamazov is not pronounced in the movie like they thought it was pronounced.  Nor can we figure out how to write the name to make it clear.  You'll just have to go to the show and hear it for yourself.
Братья Карамазовы
