June 7 in San Antonio history…
The roof of the Gunter Hotel is now open for dancing.
A steam shovel is used for the first time in San Antonio in construction of Commercial National Bank.
The San Antonio Light reports that a “well-known Major General” has been demoted to Lt. Colonel for stating at a cocktail party in London, “On my honor, the invasion will begin no later than June 15.” This former General, Henry J. F. Miller, had commanded the San Antonio Air Depot at Duncan Field until 1941. He was demoted by General Eisenhower, a former classmate at West Point.
