KEEP IT UP.
The Clean Up and Paint Up Cam
paign not only puts the community in
good sanitary condition, but makes it
possible to keep it clean. Unless the
work of cleaning up and painting up
is kept up by systematic efforts the
year around little permanent good is
accomplished. It is important that the
initial intensive work be general and
thorough. Then the follow-up work
can be carried on effectively, and the
danger of unsanitary conditions re
turning is removed.
Next week is Clean-Up week.
