Venue: Hotel Huntington

1R: d. Midge Gladman 6-0 6-1
SF: d. Carolyn Swartz 6-0 6-2

This small event was the start of a 161 match win streak for Helen, who would not be defeated again until late in 1933!

QF: d. Madge Valentine 6-2 6-4
SF: d. Geraldine Beamish 6-4 6-3

A capacity crowd at the Gipsy Club watches Wills serve big. Despite not dropping a set she faces tough opposition, dropping at least 6 games to 3 foes.
