February 7 in San Antonio history…


A by-product of the jet age rocked the Highland Park area.  What happened was that an F-100 Super Sabre pilot cut in his afterburner and the explosive sound echoed off low-lying clouds, rattled windows, shook houses and jangled nerves.

The newly remodeled sections of the St. Anthony Hotel are opened today, including the new Charles V Dining Room.  Remodeling was begun in March 1964.

George Gervin scores 12 points in his first game as a San Antonio Spur (right).  The Utah Stars win the game, however, 86-83.
