Grease Used For Protection
GIRL aquaplane racers are evidently willing to sacrifice beauty for comfort, judging from the above photo. Jeanne Gilbert is shown getting a coat of grease at the hands of Babe Meneffee. well known speedboat driver who towed Jeanne’s aquaplane in a race off the Pacific coast. Other girls entered tried out the grease to protect them from wind and spray during the difficult 44-mile event from Santa Catalina Island to Hermosa Beach. Calif.
