May 24 in San Antonio history…

1932
Two thousand trees, bearing markers in memory of veterans, will be planted in Bexar County along Highway 3-A, which connects the Alamo and San Jacinto battlefield near Houston.

1936
The rerouting and consolidation of all but seven of the San Antonio Public Service Co. bus lines was begun.

1973
Fifteen truckloads of oil, each carrying 175 barrels, arrived at the City Public Service Board’s Sommers plant late last night.  Spokesman Jerry Spengler said emergency shipments of much-needed fuel oil will be coming in regularly from various companies and will hopefully offer “some relief” to the city as it wrestles with its energy crisis.
