The local reclamation branch of the camp quartermaster’s department continues to add to its already demonstrated efficiency.

This branch is under the command of Captain Stanley Eiseman, under Major R. B. Sturkie, camp quartermaster. He says he has in the clothing repair shop is running a double shift, the women working in the day time and the enlisted men, who have been employed right along, working at night.

In addition to the regular shoe repair shop, there has been established temporarily a shop where some 45 civilians are employed. These came from El Paso mostly. This shop is due to a great accumulation of shoes caused by various changes in the camp.

In the matter of garbage waste from the kitchen and mess halls, the reclamation branch has instituted a system of segregation so as to check up on the amount of wastage of different articles. These separate articles, bread for instance, are weighed. Also, four inspectors are out all the time examining and checking up on the matter of kitchen waste. – El Paso Herald Newspaper – Thursday, July 4, 1918
