January 9 in San Antonio history...

San Antonio has at last been placed on the list of Andrew Carnegie and will get $50,000 for a new library.

Arleigh Templeton, president of UTSA, announces that the hours of the new university will be from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on
Saturdays “so the working kids and the housewives can go to school.”  The university is slated to open on Sept. 1, 1973 with an estimated 5,000 to 6,000 students.  Currently, San Antonio is the largest city in the nation without a state-sponsored university.

The San Antonio Light reports that the St. Anthony Tower, an 18-story luxury hotel with 300 rooms will be constructed across Jefferson Street from the current St. Anthony Hotel.  The two hotels will be connected by a second-floor walkway over Jefferson Street.
