June 12 in San Antonio history...

1898
The fire department boys have received their new summer straw hats, all of the Alpine shape, in brown straw.

1938
After a decade of construction, the Sunken Garden Theater, one of San Antonio's beauty spots, today stood completed.  The project was started in 1928 with erection of a 30x40 foot stage.

1948
San Antonio spigots are going to drip instead of gush if water users don't practice conservation, city engineers predicated today.  There's little chance summer rains will eliminate the drought, they say, and the postwar demands on a pre-war water system drain the supply.
