As if an impossible German
translation, a 2000 word English
theme or a math blue book are
not enough to frustrate Joe Col-
lege, candy manufacturers have
to worry him further by talk of
shrinking the five-cent candy bar.
"There won't be much of a five-
cent bar left, if at all, unless the
cost of raw materials stops going
up," said Harry Lustig, executive
secretary of the Association of
Manufacturers of Confectionery
and Chocolate. "The candy will
either have to shrink drastically
or go up in price."
"Cocoa has gone up from 400
to 500 per cent, and it is still
rising daily, and so are corn syrup
and sugar," Lustig said. Accord-
ing to Lustig, candy manufactur-
ers have been having a hard time
ever since price controls were
lifted after the war.
The big question is whether to
increase the price or to sell puny
little bars at the usual nickel
price. Some manufacturers have
already increased their wholesale
prices, although this has not yet
affected the consumer, Lustig
