June 20 in San Antonio history...

While in the act of giving a lady his seat on the Hot Wells street car last night, C.B. Christians fell from the car and suffered severe bruises.  He was trolley riding with his wife when the accident occurred.

Randolph Field is dedicated.

Ray Ashworth, 35, Evanston, IL., one of the nation's outstanding safety experts, today was named chief of the San Antonio Police Department.  He succeeds W.A. Harvey, an acting chief since June 1.

The headline of the San Antonio Express newspaper read "60 cent gas looms in San Antonio."
($0.60 in 1975 works out to $2.40 per gallon today after inflation.  It would still be a bargain.)
