J. W. Thompson, contractor, who for several months has been putting in big improvements in Camp Cody, has practically completed the work and the office force is now finishing its work. It is said that the work under the Thompson contract this time cost well over $1,750,000.

Among the principal items were a sewer system costing about $550,000; increasing and improving the water system, over $40,000, and installing ranges in kitchens for the new 97th division, which was to have been trained there if the war had continued as was expected, over $40,000.

Then there were bath houses with cement floors and with hot water equipment, and the like, considerable building, and other construction work. – El Paso Herald Newspaper – Monday, December 2, 1918
