April 3 in San Antonio history...

To celebrate their 11 years in business, Academy Army Surplus Company, with stores at 117 Soledad and 1301 S. Flores St., is holding a big anniversary sale.   The company began in 1939 as Academy Tire Shop on S. Flores and is named for nearby St. Henry’s Academy.  (It is known today as Academy Sports and Outdoors.)

The Grand Dragon of the KKK, Charles Lee, tells the San Antonio Light that the Klan will be in San Antonio on May 1 to “protect the Alamo from Communists.”

The mercury reaches an all-time low for the date of 31 degrees, the latest freeze in San Antonio history.  (Still a record today.)
