PARTY PREPARATION: This is the day for hearts and cupids and poetry and parties and school youngsters across the city were busy exchanging cards and having special Valentine Day celebrations. In Bach School this morning, our photographer caught these members of a kindergarten class deep in the serious business of making a Valentine pudding for later consumption. The girls seem to be doing the work but the middle man gets to lick the bowl. They are (left to right) Sandy Zahn, 5, of 215 Murray Ave., Larry Hulcher, 5, of 223 Crest Ave., and Judy May, 5, of 219 Bucholz Ct.
