Sixteen Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Thursday, Evening, June 13, 1957 Five Teams Separated By One Game In Torrid NL Cards and Pirates Scramble Standings White Sox Survive Two Home Runs by Mickey Mantle to Edge New York Yankees, 7 to 6, and Even Series. Del Ennis, on the trading block only a week ago, is swinging in his old rhythmic style again and he could be the man to produce a possible pennant melody for the •treaking St. Louis Cardinals. The slugging Ennis paced the Cards to their eighth straight victory Wednesday night when he blasted a three - run homer off Robin Roberts of the Phillies in a 4-0 triumph that moved St. Louis within one game of the National League lead. Thanks, in part, to Ennis' recent performances, the first five N.L. clubs are so closely bunched today that they all could squeeze through an eye of the same needle. Cincinnati still leads by half a game over both Brooklyn and Milwaukee while St. Louis and Philadelphia are both one game cut. Musia!

French Colt Touted As Belmont Surprise NEW YORK (UP)—Lucky Dip, a French-bred colt with stamina lo spare, may prove th'o surprise of Saturday's 89th running of the $100,000 Bclmonl Slakes, the Ihird jowel in the turf's Triple Crown. While most observers are tabbing Bold Ruler and Gallant Man as the hor.ses to beat, Luoky Dip came to the running of the mile and one-half Belmont with two sparkling performances at Delaware Park. Odds makers expected Bold Ruler, the Preakncss winner, to go off at around oven money, while they pick Gallant Man as the strong second choice at about 6-5. Figuring the Belmont as a two- horse race, no odds are being quoted on Luoky Dip, Cohoes, Inside Tract, Nan Hiss and Bold Nero, the other expected starters. prize.

Watch "Old Guys" The gallery experts all warned "look out for the old guys," referring to the likes of Hogan, Sammy Snoad and Jimmy Demaret, who has taken on a new lease on life recently.
