Instructions have been received by Garnett King, chairman of the El Paso traffic committee, to give attention to the demobilization of 2,200 soldiers at Camp Cody, Deming, New Mexico. Richard Warren, of the E. P. & S. W. system, has been sent there to attend to the matter.

“Each day 500 must be moved,” said Mr. King. “I hope to complete the movement by making additional equipment to the schedule.”

There are 15,000 troops at Camp Cody, and 12,800 will be there after the present movement, it was reported. – El Paso Herald Newspaper – November 23, 1918
