The boys said they smelled something smoldering, Janitor Defends Self But from his hospital bed James Raymond, 44, the janitor, insisted the area was clear of any refuse or stacks of papers as of last Thursday. He doubted anything was placed there Friday, a school holiday. The FBI stood by in the case, saying "it is maintaining a liason with Chicago officials to see if there is any way we can assist." Examination of a steel 30-gallon can found near the wooden northeast stairway failed to turn up any helpful clues. Raymond said iie had seen such a can before, but didn't know why it was there.

Association engineers reported heavy wooden doors on the second floor were open, permitting fire and hot gases to spread quickly. First floor doors were closed, the investigators were quoted as saying, protecting classrooms there. Some 1,300 students were in the U-shaped building when the fire broke out.
