1918 – World War I
San Antonians are preparing for the Daylight Savings time change tonight. The San Antonio Light reports that there “will be no change in working hours, railroad train schedules or anything else. People will rise early in the coolness of a summer morning, finish their work an hour earlier in the day, devote the remaining daylight hours to recreation or the planting of “war gardens” and save fuel and electricity by going to bed early at night.”
Four masked and armed bandits entered the San Antonio National Bank at noon today and escaped with $19,000.
The Dallas Times Herald said today that a San Antonio group has reached satisfactory terms for purchase of the Dallas Chaparrals of the American Basketball Association. The newspaper said the sale price is around $1 million and is expected to be announced over the weekend if the ABA approves.
