Camp Cody has exceeded the highest expectations of those in charge of the Liberty Loan campaign. More than $110,000 worth of bonds have been subscribed for up to Thursday night, according to Lieutenant Ira M. Sprecher, loan officer for the camp.  He now believes that the total probably will reach $150,000, though not exceed that figure. – El Paso Herald Newspaper – Saturday, May 4, 1918

Camp Cody Boys Will Now Have Hair Cut in a “Fashion Military”

Filed under: Camp Cody Deming — Michael Kromeke @ 8:37 pm

Hereafter it will not be a question of personal taste how you wear your hair, if you happen to be a member of the 135th infantry. Colonel Erie D. Luce, commander of that regiment and at present acting commander of the 68th infantry brigade, has issued a regimental memorandum direction uniform cut for the hair of every man in his outfit. There will be no more convict clips, marcel waves, von Hindenberg pompadours and other types of hair dressing in the regiment; nothing but the prescribed style of haircut will be permitted and the last bar to strict uniformity in appearance will have been let down. – El Paso Herald Newspaper – Thursday, April 25, 1918
