The directors' decision, which resulted in the resignation of its four member executive, dropped the Maple Leafs into the basement of the seven team league and out of the playoff picutre. However, Harvic said (he de- cision "cannot be supported."

Back on June 15, Expos' general manager Jim Fanning announced a trade between his ckth and New York Mels. The trade sent first baseman Donn Clendenon to New York in ex- change for pitchers Steve Henko, Jay Garden and Dave Colon as well as inlielder Kevin Collins.

The last lime the renewal clause was invoked was two years ago when the Cards did it to left-hander Steve Carlton. When Carlton held out again this spring, the club's treatment was more severe. This time, they traded him to Philadelphia Phillies. Three other holdouts ended Tuesday when pitcher Carl Mor- ion signed with Montreal Kxpos, pitcher Cecil Upsbaw of Atlanta Braves and outfielder Merv Ret- tcnmund came to terms with Baltimore Orioles. Morton re- ceived a token raise, Upshaw's terms were undisclosed while Rettenmimd got a bigger jump, probably into the class.
