Camden policemen who operate the police-radio squad cars may have grounds for superstition.

The 13th police car to be equipped with two-way radio communication apparatus will be placed in service next Saturday, it was revealed yesterday by James A. Howell, chief of the city electrical Bureau.

“Camden will be the second city in the State and one of several throughout the country to have 13 cars with two-way radio equipment,” Howell said.

Originally Commissioner Mary W. Kobus, director of public safety, ordered 10 cars be equipped. The system worked so satisfactorily the number was increased, Howell stated.

Jersey City with 24 is the only New Jersey municipality with more two-way equipped cars.
