August 22 in San Antonio history…

World War I – 1915
Joseph P. Tumulty, Secretary of President Wilson, in an address delivered today spoke of the situation with Germany as extremely critical and said that President Wilson stands as the defender of the inalienable rights of Americans on land and sea:  “In this hour of a great international crisis our hopes, our hearts, and our prayers are with our beloved President. If the necessity arises our lives and our sacred honor will follow him.”

1918
Military police have been ordered to keep soldiers out of close to a score of eating and drinking places in the carnival district of W. Houston because their women employees lack certificates attesting to their moral character.

1980
San Antonio Dodgers pitcher Fernando Valenzuela fans 15 batters in a 3-0 win over Amarillo.  The 19-year-old lefty allowed just two hits in the second half of the season and struck out 162 batters in 174 innings.
