From the archives of The Daily News for May 29:

• In 1914, floods bathed southeast Texas but were not likely to cause damage, although all of the rivers in the state were high.

• In 1914, the festival of Shavuot was observed at Temple B’nai Israel, and 10 children were presented for confirmation.

• In 1964, county officials were checking the names on a petition from Clear Lake Shores to unincorporated the city.

• In 1989, Galveston’s relatively peaceful Memorial Day weekend was marred when a 20-year-old Houston man drowned after tripping while wading in less than a foot of water east of Stewart Beach. Five friends were wading past the second sand bar when a wave pushed the victim down and into deeper water. His friends’ attempts to pull him to the surface were unsuccessful.
