November 26 in San Antonio history…
World War I – 1915
One week after leaving Ft. Sill, Oklahoma, five members of the American Aeroplane Squadron completed the last leg of their 450-mile trip and landed at Ft. Sam Houston between 9 and 10 a.m. this morning. The sixth machine, piloted by Lieut. C. G. Chapman, did not reach the field until 10:10 o’clock. After leaving Austin, Lieutenant Chapman discovered that mechanics who had filled his gasoline tank had forgotten to replace the top and he was forced to return. This caused his delay in reaching San Antonio.
The city health officer today urged that San Antonians desist from kissing until the current epidemic of colds go away. He admitted his proposal is impractical.
The first pedestrian crossing lanes in San Antonio have been painted at the intersection of Alamo and Houston streets.
