November 26 in San Antonio history...

The first regular trip in San Antonio of an electric motor car was made on the Alamo Electric Street Railway Company’s track from Navarro Street to the International Fair Grounds, south of the city (Thompson-Houston system).  Since the date, all the main street car lines adopted electric motor cars of this and the Sprague system, replacing mule-drawn streetcars.

The city health officer today urged that San Antonians desist from kissing until the current epidemic of colds go away. He admitted his proposal is impractical.

Hertzberg's, San Antonio jeweler's since 1878, has completed extensive remodeling of its 113 E. Houston St. store that returns it to turn-of-the-century atmosphere.  Alvin Golding, executive director of Hertzberg's, said remodeling is part of the firm's plans to participate in HemisFair '68.
