Hints From Heloise Moth Balls Send The Birds Flying By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: My father-in-law solved the problem of keeping birds from nesting in the caves of his house by wrapping moth balls in fine wire mesh and tacking it in their favorite nesting spots. They will leave immediately. Do not u s e cheese cloth because they will take their time to peck at it. By using the wire, it has to be done only once a year. This is because rain and dampness dissolve the moth balls but linch-pleats will need very lit- le ironing if. . . when you hang them on the clothesline, you tang them right side up instead of upside down! Fasten headings to the line with clip • type clothespins without folding them over the line. This allows the folds to form more naturally. While still wet, "form" Helois* the odor will eventually soak into the wood. J.S. Dear Heloise: I think of all the household chores we must do, ironing is the one I dread most. I have found that when washing pinch - pleated curtains, the botch it up. . . but it always rows out! Yes, I give my own perma- ents and have for twenty-three ears, and Amy, I roll it on roll- rs all over my head. Heloise )ear Heloise: pinch-pleats and fasten two three clip type clothespins the or to each pleat. When dry, the pleats will hold and form beautifully. Then. . . only a touch of the iron and you'll have a job well done with less work. Mrs. G. Van Artsdalen Dear Heloise: Do you really cut your own hair and give your own permanents? We really want to know the truth about this. If so, do you roll it in pin curls or on rollers? Amy Clever Dear Amy: Don't worry anymore. Certainly I cut my own hair.

I'm a working gal and take great pride in looking nice. In the pring and summer there is so much ironing to do because we wear fresh clothes every day. I always drip-dry all of my Iresses, blouses and full slips on langers. When I am ready to iron them, sprinkle them with very hoi water and hang them on the shower rod on the hangers. Then 1 drape a bedsheet around them. In two hours they are ready to iron with a dry, hot iron. Thi; requires no steam! I find they iron faster because they are dampened and they iron beauti fully. Dear Heloise: An old remedy which I use to remove paint from my hands Face, and so forth is: After I have finished painting I take a small piece of butter am rub it on my hands, face, legs or whatever the paint has splat tered. I rub it in well and wipe it ofl Then wash with soap and water It is so much better for m skin than turpentine or paint remover. Be sure and use the butter be fore washing with soap and wa ter.
