Rex Allen, the Singing Cowboy, was galloping into the Canadian Western Rodeo in Edmonton, Alberta, white hat held high and all that, when a flash of light blinded his horse. The horse stopped. Allen didn't. Meet Rex Allen, the Cowed Singingboy.
And up there is Carl Furillo—way up there, on the 60th floor of Manhattan's new 110-floor World Trade Center. The onetime super-armed rightfielder of the Dodgers and the National League's 1953 baiting champion is now a foreman installing elevators and he has been working on the Trade Center since 1969. Does he miss the game? No. "I have no connection with baseball whatsoever anymore, and I'm not sorry for it," he says flatly. "I haven't seen a game in 11 years, except for oldtimers' days. I'm not interested. I just don't care." And that's why, on a clear day, you can see Furillo.
