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
