October 6 in San Antonio history...

1918 – World War I
The funeral of David B. Sarran, the first San Antonio boy cited for bravery by Secretary Daniels of the U.S. Navy, who died of pneumonia last Monday at the Navy Hospital in Chicago, will be held with military honors at 10:00 a.m. this morning.  Burial will be at the National Cemetery.

The San Antonio Express announces that a new $1,000,000 theater building, to adjoin the Texas Theater, will be built on Travis Street near the San Antonio River.  Plans for the building have been completed by Robert Boller of Kansas City, architect of the Texas Theater.  Construction work will be underway in 60 to 75 days.  (Due to the stock market crash that began on Oct. 24 and the Great Depression that followed, this theater was never built.)

HemisFair ’68 comes to a close with a final total of 6,384,482 attendees.
