This week. Inflation Watch reporters IM FL ATI Of WATCH combed the aisles of 47 children's shops, drugstores and variety stores, pricing things that make life a little smoother for the little one and mommy too. We checked the price of a 12 pack of Luvs disposable diapers, size large, for toddlers over 24 pounds: Wet Ones popup moist towelettes. 40-pack; Johnson Johnson's baby powder, 14unce container; Vaseline baby oil, 16-fluid-ounce size; Baby Magic lotion, 9-ounce plastic container, and Evenflo plastic nurser, eight-ounce size.

Diapers towelettes The Luvs disposable diapers ranged in price from $2.44 to S3. 19, a difference of 75 cents or 31. Reporter Mark Lieberman found the lowest price in the survey at Toys Us, 2875 Flatbush Brooklyn, while inflation watch reporters found stores in Manhattan, Westchester, Brooklyn and the Bronx with Luvs at the highest price. There was more of a price range with Wet Ones moist towelettes, which ran from 79 cents to $1.59, a difference of 80 cents or 101. A price gap like this means that the cost-conscious consumer who shops around can buy two for the price of one if he finds a store offering the lowest price.

Terri McHugh reached it "I love a clean New York," she said as she cradled the receiver next to her ear. It was a ritual she had repeated a half-dozen times that morning and she had not even finished her first cup of coffee. Five minutes later, after arranging for the leader of a Chelsea community group to pick up a load of plastic garbage bags, Terri hung up She turned in her chair to look out over lower Manhattan from her window on the 21st floor of 1250 Broadway, the headquarters of I Love a Clean New York, Inc Swamped with calls She looked out over the panorama. "People out there really want to clean tip the city." she said.

"We're being swamped with calls." Terri, a junior at Hunter College, is studying communications. Most of her classmates are serving their six-credit summer internships at radio and TV stations or at local newspapers. "But," she explained, "by the time I applied, most of those jobs were already taken." When she was told there was a position available at I Love a Clean New York, she wasn't exactly excited. "I didn't see, what relationship the work would have to she said. But now, she says, "I'm getting A ping around to TV and radio stations" to solicit more time for 1 Love a Clean New York "I'll be showing them the tapes we have," Terri said, "and trying to find out how we can get them more involved."

"I told you," Sanders said again. The children now retired to the center of the platform. Sanders wore tinted glasses. He held up the paper bag with the beer bottle in it "Hope you no cop," he said. He took a swig of beer.

He was standing on the Atlantic Ave. platform in Brooklyn and he was going to Coney Island, his East Hampton, for a summer day, but he was breaking the law by drinking beer. In this city it is illegal to drink in the streets. People at the St Moritz Hotel can sit out on the sidewalk of Central Park South and drink all day, all day and night, but for Sanders Brown to have a beer on his way to Coney Island on a Saturday morning is a criminal act THE TRAIN TOOK 20 MINUTES to arrive. By the time Sanders and his wife and the children got on, they had to stand.

One of the nieces, Shavonne, 12, sat on the floor. Sanders crouched alongside her, holding his beer. I'm on vacation this week," he said. "Where from?

"Once I went to Jersey City, went to Journal Square, and I was scared to death," one of the women said. "When was this?" the second woman said. "When I went to the State Theater. There was a man with a beard sitting next to me. I'm afraid of beards." "Yes, it was with Miriam.

If the women ever turned around and saw him, they undoubtedly would have thrown themselves onto the tracks to escape him. As it was, they became tense as Sanders Brown came down the steps. He had a Fu Man Chu mustache of such growth that it could have qualified as a beard. Sanders carried an open bottle of beer in a paper bag. With him was his wife, Charlene, and two nieces and a nephew.
