Halloween Clippings From The Milwaukee Journal

I found these today while looking for other items.  
First up is from 1935.  I don't know many whiskey drinkers who are smiling in the morning but different strokes I suppose.

The editorial cartoon below is from 1940.  If they only knew what was coming in a little over a year.

The next two are the most interesting of my finds.  The article is readable if you click to open it in another window.  I never knew of "begger's night" on the 30th & will have to read up on this.
The photo gallery has a photo of some revelers dressed as beggers.

Last are a couple of candy ads from 1970.  I was in the stores last night and a bag of candy now is $7-10.
