Young people from 14 to 18 don't need to be catered to — they can become very efficient cooks if left to their own devices. They have their own ideas as to what to serve. Once it was hamburgers, then pizzas, now pancakes. What next? If they need a good recipe, give them one — then hands off. But it must be clearly understood that clean-up as well as cooking is part of the agreement and that your kitchen must be returned to you in shining order at the party's end.

DIRECTIONS

Make the pancakes with a favorite mix or follow any recipe listed, and keep them coming, hot off the griddle. Arrange the accompaniments on a convenient table. Maple-blended syrup, apple syrup, brown sugar, flaked coconut, chopped nutmeats, marmalade, jam, jelly, crushed pineapple — as many as you can think of with plenty of butter or margarine, of course. Serve ice cold milk, carbonated drinks, cocoa, coffee, or tea — according to age groups and tastes. And there you have the ingredients for a party that's sure to be a hit.
