PUMP(K)IN' FOR SAFETY: Dennis Laraway's Halloween jack-o-lantern has a message - fire safety. The "fireman" is illuminated with an electric light bulb, rather than the usual candle. Dennis, nearly 2, is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Hascal Laraway of 1106 Brooks, a home at which fire safety is emphasized - Mrs. Laraway's father is Captain Donald Robbins of the Ann Arbor Fire Department.

A FEMALE JACK-O-LANTERN FACE - Mrs. Patrick Swope of 6797 Textile Rd. had that in mind when she designed this cover for the camping trailer she and her husband own. She dyed two 16-ft. bed sheets tangerine and then sewed them together. She then drew a feminine pumpkin face, complete with toothy smile, long eye lashes and curly hair framing a rotund face. The Swopes have the decorated camper displayed in their yard with a paper skeleton dangling from a short smoke stake mounted on the trailer top. (Press Photo)

To Cyndi Solski of Ann Arbor, Halloween means pumpkins and jack-o'-lanterns and friends. A week before Halloween, Solski throws a pumpkin carving party. She goes to a farm and picks about 50 pumpkins. On party night, tables are spread with newspaper, hot cider is put on the stove and the fun begins. Above, Solski sits in her living room with recently carved pumpkins casting an eerie glow. Top, an entire station wagon of pumpkins waits to be carved. Right, the final result, a house that could give even the most ardent trick or treater a chill up the spine. See it for yourself by driving past 827 W. Huron St. in Ann Arbor.
