January 27 in San Antonio history...

1918 - World War I
President Wilson issues a proclamation putting the nation on war rations.  He called for observance of two wheatless days, Monday and Wednesday, one wheatless and one meatless meal daily, meatless Tuesday and porkless Saturday. Simultaneously the food administration announced its new “victory bread” to contain 20 per cent of cereals other than wheat, after February 24. It also announced Tuesday would be a porkless day in addition to Saturday.

1875
The construction of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church is completed.

1910
A petition is being circulated in which citizens pledge not to eat meat for 30 days in order to reduce prices.  One man said: “A year ago, 20 cents worth of meat would keep my whole family going all day, but now it costs 40 cents.”

1941
Two wrought iron signs bearing the inscription Arneson River Theater have been placed on the San Antonio River beautification project, J. A. Hazelrigg, manager of the WPA in the San Antonio district, reported today. Made by the WPA crafts project, one of the signs is six feet long with lettering eight inches in height. This sign has been placed over the archway entrance to the river beautification project at the La Villita entrance. The second sign, 10 to 20 inches in size, has been placed on the theater building.
