WORLD’S BEST TOP-SPINNERS (Oct, 1958)
WORLD’S BEST TOP-SPINNERS
Malayan top makers and spinners are heroes. As they wind up their 12-pound tops on spinning ropes people watch their gestures and expressions with reverence. A crowd of Malayan gamblers waiting for a top to wobble—something that may not happen for 20 minutesis a-quiver with excitement. A famous top, tipped with a diamond, once spun an hour and five minutes on plate glass. Experts show their skill by transferring tops from one precarious perch to another as the minutes spin away.
