superstitious had breathed a sigh of
relief, when on June 19 a count
showed only 12 surveyors instead of
the fatal 13. Their relief was short-
lived, however, for Director Harry
Bouchard soon made it known that
Edwards would arrive late because
of the unusually long distance it was
necessary for him to travel.
Edwards, who is in the survey de-
partment of the Jamaican govern-
ment, has already dispelled the
doubts of the superstitious as he has
begun his work as unconcernedly as
a fourteenth or fifteenth engineer
would. As a matter of fact, since
Edwards is here primarily to do spe-
cial work in practical astronomy and
triangulation, he has been reclassi-
fied as an astronomer in order to re-
store peace of mind.
Edwards, whose selection of a
school site so far-removed from his
home is surprising, thinks Camp
Davis the logical place to continue
his studies. "London," he said, "was
too far away and not particularly in-
viting at this time, so the States was
the only place. And the curricula
offered at this camp was the best
foi my needs, so here I am."
New York is the only city in the
United States that Edwards had vis-
ited previous to his journey here, but
the west has already gained another
admirer. "It's the only place I've ever
been where I've found a person who
wouldn't take a tip."
