September 9 in San Antonio history…

1916
After being officially known as “Camp Cecil A. Lyon” for a single week, the encampment of state troops on the Fort Sam Houston reservation is again “Camp Wilson” and will retain that name as long as it exists.

1918 – World War I
The San Antonio Light reports that the proprietor of a large Houston street restaurant has been called by the Food Administration to explain violations of the rule that prohibits the serving of more than two ounces of wheat at one meal.  For example, if a sandwich is served, then pie cannot be served at the same meal.  However, if the bread is corn bread, then pie may be served as long as the total amount of wheat included in the bread and pie does not exceed two ounces.

2002
KMOL-TV restores their call letters to WOAI-TV, the original call letters from 1949 to 1975.
