January 1 in San Antonio history…
The first law requiring automobiles in Bexar County to be titled and registered takes effect.
The Randolph Field Ramblers, a team made up of former college athletes serving in the military, play the University of Texas to a 7-7 tie in the Cotton Bowl. This is the only San Antonio team to ever play in the Cotton Bowl and this was the first tie in the bowl game’s history. Only 15,000 spectators witnessed the game due to heavy rain.
Due to a new state law in effect today, San Antonio drivers of passenger cars or light trucks carrying a child not secured in a car seat will be subject to a fine of between $25 and $50.
