(UP) — The St. Lduls Cards, who only three days ago were convinced that they were a "team of destiny", found themselves caught today In a serious slump that threatened to wl|>e out their chances of repeating as National League Champions.

The Cards led with their ace, Harry Drcchccn, who, though he became the first St. Louis pitcher lo go the distance since Aug. 11, yielded 10 hits and was far from the form he showed in last year's pennant drive. Card batters gleaned eight scattered hits from offerings of kunckle- taller Dutch Leonard, who marked up his 15th victory.

The Yarbro Yankees temporarily *moved into fourth place In the M s- sissippi County Amateur Baseball League this week by breaking even In a patr of make-up games while their chief opponents for the hot spot, the Lutes nine, were dropping both o^ their make up tilts. The Yanks bowed to the Manila Cardinals 8 to 4 in a make-up game Tuesday afternoon on their home diamond. But they remained in the running for a play-off berth by virtue of Lutes' 10 to 1 loss to,Cooler Wednesday aflcrnoon. Then Ihe Yankees bcunced ':ack Wednesday afternoon' to paste Little River with a 9 to 3 licking to move into the fourth-place slot. Lules lost its chanc'e to regain fourth-place yesterday when the players were bowled over by the strong Manila Cardinals 10 to 8 in a home-run filled contest. Frank Ellis, lormerly of tile Bly- thevipe Tigers started on the mound for the Cardinals but was pulled in the fitih inning after Bud Lules hit a grand slam homer to overcome the Cards two-run lead. However Puss Bulllngcr, manager of the Cards, retaliated in the next frame with a Lwo-run homer that sent them surging ahead 9 to 8. The Cards final run came in the eighth frame. Tigers Dufrat I-ittlc River Mcad'.s Blylhcvillc Tigers once aeain moved into Ihe picture by <le- fealing Little 'River C to -1 yesterday afternoon to move ir.lo a fiflh place tie with Lules and throw the highly contcsled fourth spot into a three-way race. Harold Ward worked on the •mound for the Tigers giving up six hits, while his teammates were getting to A'len '-and Wcldon, Lillle River hurlers. for five binsles. | L'.tllc "River miscues proved very I costly lo their cause. Now, .the situation surrounding j the very popular fourth spot is this: the Yanks have a temporary half- ' game lead on the Tigers and Lutes,' but they have two games left to play whereas the Timers and Lutes have but one. The Yanks will meet Manila Sunday and miJst play a rallied out game with Huffman provided it is needed to decide \vho will be the fourth team in the runoff. 'Lutes will meet I-Jumbcr Nine tomorrow and the Tigers will entertain Little River. So a victory by Yarbro tomorrow would, assure them of participation in the playoff arid their Huffman game would not have to be played, but should they lose, and Elythcvillc and Lutes BASEBALL STANDINGS SOUTHERN LEAGUE W.
