Here's a picture from the cover of Superman Family #182 from 1977. Jimmy was a "cub reporter", and was still in his teens, and Kara was about the same age, so they had something in common: nobody took them very seriously. 

The comic didn't explore their friendship, but this image extracted from the cover of the issue is pretty cool. 

Lucky guy.

When I went off to Goggle this issue, I came across this synopsis of one of the stories, which illustrates the silliness of the writing during this time:

" Supergirl  is in the space, smashing some meteors away from a  Mars  probe. After clearing the path for the Viking 1, Supergirl flies her way to Pasadena's Jet Propulsion lab to watch the probe land. Supergirl listens to an officer grumble about some thief stealing secret rocket components and goes back to  New Athens Experimental School .Back on Pasadena, the Laboratory staff decide against to release one picture taken by the Viking and agree to contact Supergirl again. As the same time, a staffer called Kolpan slinks away, and using the codename Agent K, contacts Command L.Supergirl flies back to the Laboratory and is shown a picture of a piece of  Green Kryptonite , the first to be found since all Kryptonite on Earth was changed to iron. [1]  Supergirl wants this matter kept under wraps, but Kolpan has already reported his findings to his boss  Lex Luthor . Lex Luthor is in prison right now, but Kolpan has smuggled and assembled rocket components according his instructions.Luthor activates and guides by remote control his rocket and breaks out of prison. In absence of  Superman , Supergirl is alerted and takes off for the  Metropolis  Prison. Rather than chase after Lex Luthor, though, Supergirl puts out the fire burning the prison down and then she pretends to be tired to let Luthor make his escape. Then she heads back to the Laboratory.Lex Luthor's rocket warps its way to Mars, and its owner begins searching for the Kryptonite meteor. In the meantime, his actions are being monitored by Supergirl and the Laboratory's Director. Kolpan realizes they were setting Luthor up, and angrily breaks the monitor down. Supergirl captures Kolpan, confirming they were luring him out, and takes off for Mars.On Mars, Lex has found and attached the piece of Kryptonite to a manual energy canon. Supergirl arrives and confronts Luthor. During the battle, Supergirl gets blasted and pretends to be killed. Then she gets back up and crushes Luthor's beam weapon. Luthor can't believe it, but then Supergirl reveals it was a trap all along: they knew someone working for Luthor was stealing rocket components, but they didn't know the identity of the smuggler or the rocket's location, so she planted fake Kryptonite to draw them out, and she let him get to Mars so no one else got hurt by their fight. Luthor refuses to believe it was her plan rather than Superman's, but Supergirl tells him to face the facts: he has been outwitted and beaten by someone who he never took seriously."

A quote from the story goes like this:

 And face it,  Lexy-boy -- you've been baited, caught and reeled in-- all by the "little girl with the super-powers!

This writer has a lot of stories where Jimmy is a lucky guy.  Most of them are with a supped up Lois.
