Re: Dirty school restrooms. Upon recently visiting schools in Japan, I was told that the schools were so clean because the students themselves cleaned the campus the last 30 minutes of school! Of course, we could never demand that our students clean the campus; it just wouldn't be right! It's also probably against some law or regulation. JANIS BERMAN North Hollywood

Four congressmen who share a townhouse once turned down an interview to avoid publicity; now their situation may become a TV sitcom. Inspired by House Democrats Charles E. Schumer (N.Y), Marty Russo (Ill.), Leon E.

Berman (D-Calif.) wrote a script tentatively titled "Capitol Hill," and sold it to producer Jerry Weintraub.

In response to "Deukmejian Thrives in Private Life, Law Work," Jan. 3: To Dan Kelley's remark: "They (business executives) have a lot of respect for him. They know he has a pro-business outlook." I wonder which business executives he's talking about. After reading one out of every four businesses in California are moving elsewhere because government has been so unresponsive to their needs, and knowing Deukmejian had been governor for the last eight years, what are they talking about, who are they kidding?

Regarding the state budget cuts for kindergarten, while I recognize the need to cut the budget to save money, I can't help wondering if Gov. Wilson isn't going about it the wrong way. It's not an easy decision, but I believe kindergarten is more valuable than the last semester of high school, especially for those students who have completed their graduation requirements. Additionally, parents wouldn't have the financial burden of finding baby-sitters for their youngsters. Why not cut the last six months of high school for those kids who would rather enter an internship program or perform community service for credit toward graduation?
