Teen-Ager Parties Have Technique All Their Own With two teen-agers at our house I have been learning the "art" of teen - age party giving. The fad right now seems to bt for spur-of - the- moment parties A teen-ager calls home after a bail game or from another teen - ager's house where the idea for a party has suddenly hatched and says, "Can I have a few kids over for a party?" It's a mistake to take that term "a few kids" at face-value. The number may run anywhere from a dozen to 40. And it's foolish to think that if eight is the time set for a party, eight o'clock is when the guests will start to arrive. Teenagers are impatinet and before eight ever rolls around, the house will be full to overflowing. Food for a party is a simple matter. You load the kitchen sink with sacks of ice and soft dinks. You Ruth Milieu whip up everything in the cupboard into "dips" and lay in a supply 6i fancy crackers, potato chips, etc., for dunging purposes. You triple your best cookie recieps. Then set everything out where the eating can start with the party. Have enough refills so it can last until the enci Half of the arriving guests will be carrying their favorite records under their arms. When the record player gets turned up to full volume you wonder why they bothered. All their favorites sourfd alike. Once the party is under way, all you have to do, as a parent, is make yourself scarce. You stick your head in only occasionally to make sure everything is going all right. Yout teen-ager will quickly assure you that everything is fine. This is your signal to disappear again. If you've provided enough food and kept out from under foot and made no embarrassingly old-fasn- ioned suggestions for games or singing around the piano, your teea- ager will reward you with, "Gee, thanks, Mom, it was a swell party" as the last '39 or '42 model car is finally started, and is roaring down the drive. Law Catches Up SYDNEY tfl — Police are paging Marjorie Johnstone. July 24, 1940. Miss Johnstone reported to police that her automobile, a 1937 sedan, had been stolen. Police Save just found the car. Hot Game HAMDEN, Conn. W! — Police' man John H. Olsson handed out two speeding tickets within an hour. Both drivers gave the same excuse — they were hurrying to a baseball game.
