Filed under: Camp Cody Deming — Tags: — Michael Kromeke @ 2:43 pm

In commenting upon the constant decrease in the number of non-effective members of the 34th division, Major H. M. Nelly, division adjutant, says in Weekly Bulletin No. 82.

“The constantly decreasing non-effective rate is very gratifying to all who are vitally interested in the health and effectiveness of this division. The improvement is not only seasonal, but reflects the intelligence and devotion to duty of the regimental medical officers and the company officers.”

“The early detection of bad habits and of minor ailments is a characteristic if the officers of those organizations which have the low non-effective rates and it is also noticeable that in these same organizations the men are very loyal to their officers. The conclusion is not difficult to draw.”

“The number of sick per thousand for this camp as a whole for Friday, April 19, 1918, was 26.14. – El Paso Herald Newspaper – Monday, April 22, 1918

“No need of enthusiasm at Deming and Camp Cody. They are already enthused,” stated C. H. Finley on his return from a trip to those points to boost the Bliss-Cody football game at the high school stadium Thanksgiving. “Gen. Lindsay, of Camp Cody, is about the most enthusiastic booster of the big game. He says that such a worthy event is a great thing for the morale of the soldiers, and I want to assure Fort Bliss fans and players that nothing is being left undone over there to win Thursday. They are clean sports out to win. I am assured that they will bring between 2,000 and 3,000 on their special.

“All the details of the game were completed, all the officials decided on except one. Until complete the list will not be announced. We did not succeed in getting the exact lineup of the Camp Cody team, but ascertained that it is composed largely of collegians and well know professionals. We were treated royally, but when official business was over, we were done. Nobody is allowed to witness their practice.

“What we need here now is for the big downtown public to get on their mettle for this big annual charity event and all buy tickets now. There is an abundance of enthusiasm at Fort Bliss, plenty of it at the high school. With our business men, clerks and everybody taking hold, the stadium must be filled. It all goes for charity, the cause could not be more worthy. Buy tickets now. That helps. – El Paso Herald Newspaper – Monday, November 25, 1918
