New Talent for Veeck?— Cobb Overlooked Africa's Fuzzy-Wuzzies in Article By HERB AI.TSCHtJI.I, WASHINGTON HP)—The hassle Ty Cobh started when he said modern ball players aren't as good as the old timers produced some unexpected result* today. The National Geographic Socie-* ty got Into the act, pointing to what it said are the most amazing ball players in the world; the Fuiizy-Wtizzles of Africa. Those African tribesmen are reel ball hawks, the society reported. Cobb, immortal hitting slar of the first quarter of the century, caused a lot of eyebrow raising last week when he said only two ^jresent day players would rank V*'ilh the all-time greats ol years gotie by. He listed only' Stan Musial of the St. Louis Cardinals and Phil Rizzuto of the New York Yankees. "Obviously," the society said. "Cobb hasn't analyzed all the ball players in the world." And, a society spokesman added, maybe the big league talent hunters have been overlooking some promising ground as they bc»t the bushes for the stars of tomorrow. These Fuzzy-Wuzzies, who live on rocky desert land near the Red Sen. seltie their minor squabbles by throwing rocks at each other. Everything goes — curves, sliders, fork balls, palm balls, fast balls. Here's what happens when two Fuzzy-Wuzzies decide to go at it: CmpIre Starts Duel They strip to the waist, wrapping the upper ends of their white cotton robes around their middles. Each rnan takes hts position inside a small circle marked in the sand. The circles, some yards apart, contain bie piles of stones, each about the size of a baseball. -Jhe umpire signals and the two tiT'.en start pitching. Under the rules, they may dodae or catch the flying stones. If you leave your circle, you're a coward. These Fii77y-\Vuzztos have developed the art of throwing to such a high degree, the society said, that they are able to nail a flcrms mnunlan goat with a stone and kilt it. It's against the rules to kilt the umpire. YMCA Fights Illiteracy SINGAPORE Mrv-The Sinsapore Chinese YMCA has launched a crrnpalen to combat illiteracy among Chinatown's inhabitants.
