Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Wed., Oct. 23, 1974 · PAVITTEVILLI, ARKANSAS Cerebral Palsy Victim Raises And Sells Prize Winning Hog SHREVEPORT, La. (AP)Louisiana State Fair officials iaid a handicapped boy raised lis first hog to become a grand champion and received the lighest price ever paid in auction for it. But instead of slaughtering it, iiey gave the hog back to him. Auctioneer Jack Diliard told Bidders at the junior livestock auction Tuesday that 13-year old Johnnie Wayne Tupper, af- licted by cerebral palsy, painstakingly walked the hog more than a mile each day, often steadying himself against it. "There wasn't a dry eye in Lhe place," said Mrs. W.P. Shehee, president of the Kilpatrick Life Insurance Co. of Shreveport. "I got carried away just like everybody else." Mrs. Shehee submitted what officials said was a national record bid, paying $50 a pound fo rthe 240-polind Hampshire barrow. They said the hog drew more money than the grand champion steer for the first time in the fair's history. It meant $12,000 to Johnnie and tlie loss ot a friend. "Johnnie was over in the pen crying when I found Johnnie's mother to ask if it would be all right to return the pig -- that's a no-no, you know. "When she told him I want to give the pig back, he crawled out of the pen and grabbed me and just wouldn't turn me loose. "I got quile carried away. I won't do that again next year." After Johnnie finally turned Mrs. Shehee loose, he ran back to the pen and flung himself on his hog's back, said his mother, Mrs. Donald Tupper of Blanchard, La. Then they look the a n i m a l quickly and joyfully back to its stall in the Tupper barn.
