Chapter 1 Summary

Jim Prideaux's arrival at Thurgood's School was witnessed by Bill Roach, a student as Jim drove his Alvis trailer to the "dip" and parked. If Major Dover had not died, Jim would not be here. Bill goes and introduces himself to Jim and thinks that Jim must have back problems. Jim asks Bill what he is good and and Bill replies he does not know. Bill blames himself for his parent's divorce and in general feels inadequate. Jim says he is a loner and figures Bill is also and compliments Bill as a good watcher. The all-boys school like Jim and nickname him Rhino, which was a compliment. There are gaps in Jim's resume, which Mr. Thurgood complained about to the agency, but the agency head said he'd only be there for a semester. However, Jim is back for the fall term.
