Penny treats are almost a thing of the.past, except for 10 to-18-ounce packages of stick o bubble gum. Even bulterei popcorn is likely to c o s t ai much as 2 cents per cup, no couritirfg packaging cost. Since most Halloween-goblins re young ones, it 'is best not offer them candy. However, comes pre-wrapped and can e an easy, relatively inexpen- ve answer. Bulk candies, pric- d at 19 cents a pound, provide reals for 1 to 3 cents each, epending on choice. From a ound, the count is at least 80 or peppermints (1 cent each), more than 40 for caramels (2 ents each), an about 25 for hocolate creams (3 cents ach).

COOKIE COSTS ' It is nothing new that homÂ» taking of cookies for any occasion saves money over buying commercially prepared ones. However, in rccenl years, the wide variety of delicious commercially prepared ones has almost replaced time-consuming cookie baking. The rapid increase in commercially prepared cookie prices has encouraged some homemakers to return to home baking. Even then, selection or recipe with an eye to ingredient cost plus use of the least expensive ingredient within each recipe can m a k e an amazing difference in c o o k i s costs. ^^ Daily Calendar of Events Tonight Alcoholics Anonymous--Women, Ozark Guidance Center, 7 n.
