November 25 in San Antonio history…

San Antonio Transit Co. workmen began to clear Tech field in preparation for the company’s construction of a new maintenance shop and garage facilities. This ends all hopes of the San Antonio Missions using the area as a playing field in 1947.

The City Council gave brief consideration to a resolution that would urge merchants to stay closed on Sundays.  The resolution died when Mayor McAllister failed to ask for a seconding. Jack Martin, president of the San Antonio Building Trades Council, predicted San Antonio’s economy “will fall” if it is based on a seven-day week. “There is something wrong with the moral fiber of this community if we must work seven days a week,” he said.
