The first step is a movement to secure the assistance of every woman in the city, stimulating more efficient work, co-ordinating all endeavors, giving every individual her part in the great undertaking on which this country is launched, was taken at the mass meeting of women this morning in the Gunter Hotel.

1918
In broad daylight under the eyes of detectives and scores of patrolmen, a daring San Antonio thief stole a policeman’s horse, tired directly in front of police headquarters. A general pursuit failed to catch him.

1926
