News & Announcements

August 7 in San Antonio history...

1939
Mayor Maury Maverick issues a proclamation today refusing to cancel a permit allowing a Communist meeting in Municipal Auditorium on August 24.  Maverick said, “There is no way under the law that Emma Tenayuca can be denied use of any public property for public meetings.  I respect very deeply the opinion of those who oppose Emma Tenayuca.  I oppose her myself.  I oppose Communism myself.”

1945
The San Antonio Express and Light newspapers both report that a bomb, larger than any previously known, was dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima causing great damage and loss of life.  However, back on July 16, the San Antonio newspapers did not pick up a little-publicized story printed in the Gallup, NM;  Santa Fe, NM and El Paso newspapers that mentioned a huge explosion at a munitions dump near the Alamogordo Army Air Base.  This was actually the first nuclear test and would have been quite a scoop.  News of the July 16 test was finally printed today along with the news of the Hiroshima bombing.
