Abstract: In a previous paper of the first two authors [GM] the space $ J{T_\infty }$ was constructed as a James space over a tree with infinitely many branching points. It was proved that the predual $ {B_\infty }$ of $ J{T_\infty }$ fails the "point of continuity property."

In the present paper we show that $ {B_\infty }$ has the so-called "convex point of continuity property" thus answering a question of Edgar and Wheeler [EW] in the negative.
