Channel Twenty-One
Hypnosis Channel Girl Warms Up
Location: Folkstone, Kent

American schoolgirl Leonore Modell, 14, from Sacramento, California, is given a liberal coating of grease by her coach, Paul Herron, on the beach at Folkestone, Kent, today, August 20, as she began practicing for her cross-channel bid early next month. Leonore hopes to set a new fastest time for women by completing the swim in under 11 hours. Herron, also from Sacramento, who has swum the channel in both directions, says he will control her efforts largely by hypnosis.
