The new state law in effect today requires San Antonio automobile owners to report to the county clerk, register their names and obtain a number for their machine. County Clerk Newton says this law affects all vehicles – gas, electric and even motorcycles.
Mayor John W. Tobin decreed that all idlers and vagrants found in San Antonio would either be jailed or forced to go to work in the cotton fields of South Texas.
San Antonio was one of the hot spots of the nation as the temperature soared to 102. There seemed to be no relief in sight for a few days.
