In the early 30's, he played a prom­ inent role in drafting industry codes for the National Recovery Administration. For many years, Mr. McGrath was general counsel and adviser to four trade associations: the As­ phalt Roofing Industry Bureau, the Asbestos Textile Institute, the As bestos - Cement Assn., and the Rock Wool Assn. Born in Philadelphia, Mr. Mc Grath received his early schooling at the Episcopal Academy there and later attended Haverford Col lege for one year.

He was graduated for the Co­ lumbia Law School in 1901, and in the same year got a desk at Strong & Cadwalader. From 1915 to 1919 he and Hugh A.

YORKTOWN— An attorney for the law firm representing the home buyers' committee of Lakeside Village De­ velopment observed Monday that Yorktown officials might \regret their lack of interest in the de­ velopment.\ He added it \could cost the town money in six fig­ ures.\ Joseph R. Pisani of New Ro- chelle accused town officials of \just standing by\ after he had requested they let the court know of their interest in completion of the development. \From what I could learn,\ Pi­ sani said, \and my information is very reliable, the town made no attempt to lend its support to the reorganization of the develop­ ment.\ Trustee Plan Rejected The court to which Pisani refer­ red was the Federal District Court in New York City, which last week denied a petition filed on be­ half of the home buyers request­ ing a trustee be appointed to re­ organize the bankrupt develop­ ment. The home buyers that Pi­ sani's firm represents have down payments totaling $250,000 on lots and homes in the develop­ ment, located between Mohansic Ave. and Hunterbrook Rd. off Rte. 202. Work at Lakeside Village stop­ ped in March when the original developers, Ahneman-Christiansen Inc., suffered financial collapse. Forty-seven homes are completed at the development and 27 are under construction. May Appeal Ruling Pisani said that his firm would \leave no stone unturned\ in its effort to save the home buyers' deposits and that the group was \thinking very seriously\ of ap- pealing the Federal Court's ruling to the United States Court of Ap­ peals. A committee of home buy­ ers representing all 140 of them will meet within a few days to consider the appeal, Pisani dis­ closed. The \six figures\ that the town might be \out\ if the develop­ ment isn't completed is money that would be paid for the sew- ment, according to the attorney. If foreclosure proceedings start, Pisani pointed out, the disposal plant would go to mortgagees. If the town wants to control all public utilities, the attorney said, it would be forced to buy the plant. But if the plant is kept as a private utility, the homeowners living at the development must pay sewage charges that they did­ n't expect to pay. The original developers had agreed to turn the disposal plant over to the town. Pisani disclosed that the town had planned to hook sewage lines of other homes built in the area onto the Lakeside plant. He said this could have been done easily with a few addi­ tions to the filtering plant. The disposal plant is three-fourths com­ pleted, according to Pisani, and was to have cost $300,000. A stay that was granted by a Federal Judge while he studied the home buyers' request is still in effect at the development. The stay has kept any action from be­ ing taken against the original de­ velopers, so the development is intact except for $11,800 worth of materials sold by the government to satisfy a federal lien. But the stay will be vacated as soon as the Federal Judge signs the order formally turning down the home buyers' request. This will be within the next four days, according to Pisani.
