Indiana Farm Wife Wins Two Top Awards at Live Stock Show CHICAGO (UP) — A raven- haired Indiana farm wife today 1 looked forward to collecting about ; $20,000 and a "farm of our own", on her $100 investment in the] grand champion steer of the International Live Stock Exposition. Mrs. Sue L. Secondino, 19, West Terre Haute, broke into tears ofj joy Tuesday afternoon when her 1,050-pound, white faced steer' named "Honeymoon" captured its second grand championship in a I week. Last Saturday, Honeymoon! won the junior title. Chuck Wood Jr., 16, Spencer,. Iowa, took the reserve grand championship with his 1,050 pound steer named Sena'lor. Swine will be judged in the huge amphitheatre today when the grand champion barrows are named.

Hides Her Tears Mrs. Secondino made history in', the world's biggest farm show by I becoming the first married woman ; to -exhibit the grand champion since the exposition began in 1900. A crowd of about 5,000 persons watched in silence as veteran cattle judge Dr. A. D. Weber of Kansas State College eyed and prodded the three top steers and then slappd "Honeymoon" across the rump — signifying it was the' king of cattledom. The vivacious young woman tugged Honeymoon to the center of the show ring with one hand and covered her eyes to hide the tears with the other hand. "Wow! Oh. man" she shouted after recovering her composure, and moments later embraced and kissed her husband, Peter, 23, who broke through a ring of photographers to be at her side. Then, they both kissed the steer. SELECT YOUR GIFTS NOW! Sxtra shopping time 'til Christmas-Open all day Wed.
