October 5 in San Antonio history…
Texas A&M defeats Tulsa, 41-6, in the first college football game at the brand new Alamo Stadium. The first Aggie to score a touchdown was Derace Moser.
Both local and long-distance phone service was temporarily suspended here as Telephone Company employees conducted a strike vote.
The University of Mississippi racked up a 21-0 victory over the Trinity Tigers before a disappointing gathering of 6,511 at Alamo Stadium Saturday night. The Rebels, number 6 in the nation, no doubt could have rolled to a larger margin had Coach Johnny Vaught desired to play his first unit a little more.
