April 10 in San Antonio history...

Water was struck in the new excavation for the new Alamo National Bank building at Commerce and Presa.

The new African-American newspaper, the San Antonio Register, owned by Valmo C. Bellinger, publishes its first issue.

Rev. Bob Harrington, “The Chaplain of Bourbon Street,” preaches a sermon at halftime of a critical playoff game between the Spurs and the Indiana Pacers. “You’re going for your Pearl [beer] and I am talking about the pearly gates,” said Harrington. The Spurs won, 102-86.  “Bring Harrington to Indiana,” said one Spur as he left the court. Harrington resumed preaching after the game and about 3,000 of the 12,304 spectators stayed to listen.
