May 24 in San Antonio history…
1917 – World War I
John W. Tobin and City Clerk Fred Fries have issued a joint call for a final meeting of the presiding judges who are to serve as registrars in the various places to take the military census June 5. The meeting of the registrars from the 44 country precincts will be held Saturday, June 2, at 10 a.m. in the Commissioners’ Courtroom while that of the registrars for the city precincts will be held June 4, at 10 a. m. in the council chamber at the city hall.
Tonight is the grand opening of the Roaring 20’s Teen Club (formerly Shadowlands), three miles north of Loop 410 on Blanco Road. Along with Gene Thomas, headliners will be The Missiles band and vocal group along with San Antonio’s own Denny Ezba. This will mark the first time that a Teen Nite Spot has been put into operation and we’re betting everybody will dig the idea.
