Filed under: Camp Cody Deming — Tags: — Michael Kromeke @ 2:27 pm

Lieutenant Colonel Fred W. Palmer, commanding the base hospital at Camp Kearny, California, arrived in Camp Cody Sunday, being the guest of Lieutenant Colonel Jacob N. Coffin, division surgeon. He is engaged in making a tour of inspection of the various base hospitals in the southern departments, in order to observe the methods in use as well as to consult the heads of each base hospital. Upon his return to Kearny he intends to adopt the best features, or such of them as may be applied to the California institution.

This inspection is in line with the policy of the surgeon general’s office to promote better understanding between the various units of the medical and sanitary corps, and to standardize the methods, while always seeking for improvement.

Before coming here, Colonel Palmer toured the camps at San Antonio and Houston, Texas. – El Paso Herald Newspaper – Tuesday, May 14, 1918

In his weekly bulletin No. 10, Major H. M. Nelly, 34th division adjutant, calls attention to men in the army who may think they have ideas valuable to the service as how they may get those ideas or information before the proper military recognition. The adjutant says: “Members of the service having new ideas or information which they believe of value to the service in general may forward through military channels to the adjutant general of the army for submission to the general staff a brief outline of their ideas or the publication desired. If the ideas or information are desirable for publication, every facility will be given for perfecting the same and for presenting them to the service. Proper military recognition will be give to the individual concerned. The division commander will consider any proposed publication of the nature described above with a view to forwarding it to the war department, if it be deemed advisable.” – El Paso Herald Newspaper – Wednesday, January 23, 1918

Hostess House at Camp Cody Burns

Y.W.C.A. Cottage is Destroyed, Only Veranda Being Left

At 8:20 o’clock Sunday morning, when a strong east wind was blowing, fire broke out in the northwest corner of the Y.W.C.A. hostess house on Pine street, totally destroying the building. All that is left is the big veranda on the east side.

Miss J. M. Beattie, the director; Miss Elizabeth Brown, business director, and Mrs. Miller, in charge of the kitchen, do not know how the fire started. They said it seemed to come from beneath the floor.

The Deming fire department responded, but saving a dry frame building in such a wind was impossible. Soldiers from the camp and vicinity saved practically all the personal property. Miss Brown said that the building cost about $5,000 and was insured by the New York office of the organization. Nothing is known about rebuilding. Mayor R. F. Hamilton, of Deming, stated that the fire limits having been extended no frame building could be put up on the present site. – El Paso Herald Newspaper – Monday, July 1, 1918
