Opening night of the International Livestock Exposition's horse show in Chicago's International Amphitheater was a champagne affair bubbling with elegance and knowledgeable talk about cattle and horses. The Woman's Board of the Chicago Boys' Clubs staged a benefit dinner party at the famous and fashionable Saddle and Sirloin Club, where several hundred guests dined by candlelight on the neighboring stockyard's prime beef. The diners, who included a handful of foreign ambassadors and an impressive list of business and industrial tycoons, strolled in and out of the dark-paneled Sirloin Club through a side door opening directly to the show ring to watch proceedings.
