General Mauldin to Hooverize Camp Cody

Filed under: Camp Cody Deming — Michael Kromeke @ 1:52 am

Brigadier General Frank G. Mauldin commander of the Sandstorm Division, is again calling attention to the necessity of economy in the use of  foods in this training camp, and will see to it that it is thoroughly Hooverized. Every effort will be made to reduce the wastage of food to a minimum. Conservation of foodstuffs is of the utmost importance now, and he has impressed on the various commanders again the fact that no pains are to be spared in conforming to the orders issued previously on the subject. Major O. A. McGee, division inspector, will be on the lookout constantly to observe if General Mauldin’s instructions are being carried out. – El Paso Herald Newspaper – Saturday, November 17, 1917
