March 13 in San Antonio history...

1884
The Vaudeville Theater, closed by police after the shooting of Ben Thompson and King Fisher two days ago, was reopened. Few people attended, however.

1917
A stolen automobile collided with a popcorn wagon at 12:10 o’clock this afternoon, badly damaging the latter vehicle. The automobile, a service car, was owned by Joe Krum, 1111 West Travis Street, and was being operated by Joe Page, 631 Mission Street. The latter stopped the car Avenue C and Third Street. Hardly had the chauffeur left the automobile when the thief bounded into it and rapidly drove away. The collision with a popcorn wagon on Avenue C, two blocks from the scene of the theft, brought the machine to a standstill.

1974
The file “Don’t Leave Go My Hand,” an adaptation of Arthur Roberson’s play, first produced in California in 1969, and directed by Vantile Whitfield, has its world premiere at the Woodlawn Theater.
