Small squads of paint can bearing teens with brushes moved up the Heights from all points of the compass. Keep in mind there were no homes above 17th, a brush covered hillside. Another paint laden gang was already up there. The Lincoln guys!
This is where I guessed we were involved in an operation much bigger than ourselves, an inter Sunset caper, school rivalries set aside, to crush a common foe.
Splashing, brushing and rolling paint, the large letters of LOWELL disappeared. Interrupted twice by oncoming cars, the lookout signal scattered us into the brush of the hillside.
The third car got through....
