MRS. MARIA ESTHER BARRIOS DE RAMIREZ TIPPED THE SCALES AT 25 STONE NINE POUNDS (359 POUNDS -- 163 KILOS) TO WIN THE TITLE.
    WITH THE TITLE WENT A SPECIAL SLIMMING COURSE, BUT THIS WAS SOMEWHAT OFF-SET BY ANOTHER PRIZE -- OF POTATOES, TOMATOES, ONIONS, FLOUR, CHEESE, AND OTHER INGREDIENTS TO HELP HER KEEP HER FIGURE.
    MRS. DE RAMIREZ EASILY OUTWEIGHED 35 OTHER CONTESTANT FROM THE ARGENTINE AND URUGUAY, AND AFTER THE CONTEST JOINED THEM AND 200 FRIENDS IN A CELEBRATION DINNER.
