(AP) — Barlj^ra Ross likes the police helicopter that patrols over her house and tells the aircraft's pilots so—by spelling out hundreds of fan messages with wooden shingles on her tennis ;_ court. . "Welcome to Eagle Rock, LAPD Astro Supercopter," Mrs. Ross spelled out one day. "What flies and has no wings—is blue ;but not sad- whistles but has no teeth? The LAPD Supercopter," ••'she, declared another time. '.-. Her pen pal letters via shingles "began last year when : she looked up and saw a Los Angeles Police Department helicopter flying overhead The department has jurisdiction in this,suburban community. It- must be lonesome up there, she thought.' Then she remembered, there were a lot of shingles'"left over from a roof; ing job on her home. "I arranged them en our back yamd tennis court to spell out 'Hi,'" she recalled; Since then she's sent nearly 400 messages to brighten the day of,her "Supercopter." For a long time Mrs. Ross wasn't sure if her messages were reaching upstairs. Then one rainy day, after spelling out "Rain, rain, go away so Su- percopter will fly around today," she heaird the aircraft buzz over. As Mrs. Ross came out, the helicopter made an extra circle and the pilot tipped the craft slightly as "if it were a halt," she said. ( The 'copter pilots, policemen John M. Ooyle and Daryl Mortimer, said they were intrigued by the messages but never knew who their friend was until several weeks ago when, out of curiosity, they drove over to Mrs. Ross* home. • "We were delighted to finally meet Mrs. Ross and her jaimi- ly," Mortimer said. "They are wonderful people." ; ' , Mrs. Ross said her two,sons, Mike, 13, and Mekine, 11, her husband Mel and even grandmother, Ross join in the message making.
