re: Houston Texas APS Convention 1953

I was not alive then, but some friends that are well into their old ages say
that there were a lot of larger conventions at the Sam Houston Coliseum, which
no longer exists. The place had everything from car shows, to rodeos, to the
WHA Houston Aeroes and Gordie Howe with his kids. Even had chicken wire above
the boards the first year instead of glass.
