"This school turns out some of the'
best janitors in the country," a Uni-
versity High School student com-
mented as he and others scrubbed
the wall there yesterday for their sec-
ond annual cleaning day.
High school boys and girls in jeans,
often barefoot, carrying pail and mop,
washed walls, lockers, floors, and
windows and climaxed the after-
noon with a record dance at 4 p. m.

and organized by the Student Build-
ing and Grounds Committee, was an
attempt to overcome the janitor
shortage and clean the University
High building.
The University Building and
Grounds Department supplied 100
pounds of rags, but the students
