The work will be don by the J. W. Thompson Company, the camp contractor. The plan provides for sewing rooms, storage rooms and other comforts and conveniences, as well as for an assembly hall and library. – Deming Headlight Newspaper – July 5, 1918

Deming, New Mexico Candy Store Closed – 1918

Filed under: Camp Cody Deming — Michael Kromeke @ 10:36 am

Under the orders of the federal  food administrator for New Mexico the Cody Confectionery on West Pine Street was closed from June 28th until July 4th , the reason being that the firm was carrying more sugar than it was entitled to have at one time. It is the intention of the food administrator to enforce the sugar regulations inflexibly and to punish anyone found violating them. Deming Headlight Newspaper – July 5, 1918
