SORTA BIG, DON'T YOU THINK? Three-year-old Vicki Jean Parks, reflecting the generosity of her father, Ray Parks, 415 W. Davis St., who yesterday gave Halloween pumpkins away to children, encouraged Bobby Moak to take the biggest pumpkin of the lot. Bobby was interested but had to settle on a much smaller one, as the big pumpkin proved too much for him to lift, let alone carry. Vicki's father, annoyed at the high prices of pumpkins at downtown stores, took a truck into the country and brought back two loads of pumpkins numbering about 200. He gave them away yesterday to the first 200 children to claim them.
