Six Post Office Clerks from Minnesota Arrive at Camp Cody, Deming

Filed under: Camp Cody Deming — Michael Kromeke @ 4:50 am

The six clerks from the Minneapolis, Minnesota, post office for service in the Camp Cody branch arrived this morning and reported for duty. The fifteen clerks from Dallas, New Orleans and Texarkana, who came with the establishment of the camp, have not been able to take care of the heavy mail that followed the arrival of the soldiers, except by working from twelve to sixteen hours per day, and it was hoped that these additional men would relieve the tension. However, the two Texarkana men have been recalled and one clerk entered the railway mail service, which leaves the force below the number contemplated. Postmaster Fulks says that the best service possible will be given until more clerks can be secured. – El Paso Herald Newspaper – Tuesday, October 30, 1917
