This silent news film from the KCTV News Collection includes footage for several news stories, including men at a speaking engagement, a race car promoting the San Angelo Speedway, a grass fire at North Concho Lake (now O.C. Fisher Lake), and an office where personnel are selling tickets to a football game. Race car driver Kenny Myers parks his car at a local business to promote the beginning of the season at San Angelo Speedway, then three beautiful young women, including Myers' wife, perch on the hood of his car to help advertise! The fire at North Concho Lake is of special significance because the popular television show, Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, awarded San Angelo the Flying Fickle Finger of Fate Award for having a lake that caught on fire.
