Deming maintains its lead as the healthiest army camp location in the United States, for the Official Bulletin quotes the surgeon general of the United States as follows, the statement being authorized by the war department:

“Camp Cody again has the lowest sick rate of all camps of this group (divisional camps), camps Sevier, Beauregard and Shelby having the highest sick rates. The largest number of new cases of pneumonia reported from a single camp is 13 (camp Cody).”

At Camp Cody, in addition to the 13 new cases of pneumonia there were 21 new cases of venereal disease, 17 cases of measles, and no deaths, while the noneffective rate was only 18 per thousand. – El Paso Herald Newspaper – Monday August 12, 1918
