House warranty plan differences tackled By CHERYL HAWKES OTTAWA (CP) Representatives of govenment, the building industry and the Consumers Association of Canada (CAC) agreed Monday to set up a small working committee to iron out their differences over a proposed national house warranty program. The agreement came at a day-long meeting to discuss an independent home warranty council pledged last month by Urban Affairs Minister Ron Basford. Delegates to the which included Mr. Basford, spokesmen for the CAC, the Housing and Urban Develop- ment, Association of Canada the Canadian Bankers' Association, Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) and representatives of every province except British Columbia and to set up the smaller working committee after a morning session failed to dissolve a basic disagreement between the CAC, HUDAC and the federal government. The CAC has voiced its sup- port for Mr. Basford's INixon gets paper back WASHINGTON (AP) President Nixon's vice- presidential correspondence with such figures as John F. Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev was retrieved for him months after he claims he gave his papers to the government, congressional investigators say. The president and his lawyers have insisted that the gift was made before July 25, 1969, the cut-off date for tax deductions on such contributions. But materials made public by the joint committee on internal revenue taxation show that the appraiser and a government archivist went through the gift papers in late 1969 and 1970 and withdrew the files containing correspondence with the best- known figures.

I when Montana went on daylight proposed warranty council, which would protect home buyers from builders who go bankrupt, referee disputes involving shoddy workmanship and establish an insura ico fund to finance im- mediai settlements to home buyers who win a claim against a builder. WANT FREE HAND The nine HUDAC delegates however restated the associ- ation's position that the government should stay out of the home warranty field and leave the industry to supervise itself. CAC treasurer Jim O'Grady, an Ottawa lawyer, said in an interview that the Consumers' group opposed such a voluntary plan of control. "The delinquent builders are not members of organizations like HUDAC. Under a voluntary plan only HUDAC members would be subject to controls." The nine member group is expected to hold its first meeting April 16 at CMHC headquarters in Ottawa. The 50 delegates attending the meeting Monday agreed that the committee should come up with a compromise within a couple of months, Mr. o'Grady said. The group will include three CAC representatives, three HUDAC members, CMHC lawyer A'.D. Wilson, a representative of the federal consumer affairs department and Reginald Ryan, president of the Mortgage Insurance Company of Canada. All the provinces have been invited to send housing and consumer affairs department rep- resentatives to the committee's meetings, Mr. O'Grady said. TAKE NO SIDES While the federal government, the CAC and HUDAC representatives came to Monday's meeting armed with definite positions, representatives of the fi- nancial institutions and the provinces declined to take definite sides outside the meeting. "We (the CAC) would hope the federal government would encourage uniform warranty legislation in each of the prov- Mr. O'Grady said at the end of the morning session. Although problem builders are in the minority in the con- struction industry, he said CAC members feel there is a real need for home owners with faulty merchandise to have some sort of protection. Most good builders offer warranties on their homes, Mr. O'Grady said, "but the way the market is now, most people grab what they can get." CARDINAL MCGUIGAN Ex-church leader dies, 79 TORONTO (CP) James Cardinal McGuigan, former archbishop of the Roman Catholic archdioces of Toronto, died -of a heart attack at his residence Monday. He was 79. A spokesman at the chancery office of the archdiocese said death came suddenly at about 6 p.m. The cardinal had been in failing health for several years and retired as archbishop in April, 1971. He was elevated to the cardinalate in 1946 by the late Pope Pius XII. Cardinal McGuigan was succeeded as archbishop of Toronto by the Most Rev. Philip Pocock. Rev. Leonard Wall, chan- cellor of the archdiocese, said the cardinal's funeral will be Easter Monday, April IS. Liturgical law prohibits funerals in the latter part of Holy Week and the rule applies even in this instance, he added. Cardinal McGuigan is sur- vived by a younger brother, Dr. John McGuigan of Edmonton. The Vatican's apostolic delegate to Canada, the Most Rev. Guido del Mestrie, has been notified and an official statement is expected from Rome overnight, the spokesman said. The cardinal's body will lie in state at St. Michael's Cathedral later this week. His Eminence had been con- fjned to his home since suffer- ing a severe heart attack in July, 1965.

(CP) About 400 persons gathered Monday in the wood, stone and glass foyer of the McMichael Canadian Collection to pay final tribute to A. Y. Jackson, the last of the original Group of Seven painters, who died Friday at 51. He was buried on a knoll in the 300 wild acres attached to the gallery, housing the largest single collection of the artist's works. Nearby, rough-hewn stones mark the graves of Lawren Harris, Arthur Usmer and Frederick Viriey, three other members of the rebel Group who created a new genre in Canadian art. A gallery spokesman said an informal atmosphere pervaded the crowd, clustered around a massive stone waterfall inside the gallery, silenced for the service. It was "kind of a happy group that A. Y. would have wanted." the spokesman said. Very Rev. T. E. Downey of Ottawa and Rev. Arthur Aller- ton of nearby Schomberg Anglican Church officiated at the indoor service, followed by a graveside ceremony in chilly air under a bright sky. Dr. Barker Fairley, retired University of Toronto professor and long-time friend of the Group, gave the eulogy, recalling days he and the artist had gone camping in Northern Ontario. The artist's sister, (Catherine, three nieces and numerous grandnephewi and grandnieces attended the service. Among relatives at the graveside were Naomi Jackson Groves of Ottawa, Claire Jackson of Lethbridge, Alta., and Geneva Jackson Petrie of Hamilton, all nieces of the painter. Government reaffirms plans N to guarantee farm prices By DOUG SMALL OTTAWA (CP) The gov- ernment reaffirmed plans Monday to guarantee farm .prices that cover production, labor and investment costs in an effort to boost iood production and keep farmers on the land. Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan, flanked by 13 other cabinet ministers, told the Canadian Federation of Agriculture (CFA) that forthcoming legislation to stabilize farm incomes and prices will "meet the criteria set forth by your or- ganization." Farmers would be eligible for programs that would keep prices for farm goods above production, material and labor costs and still leave farmers with some profit. Charles Munro, president of the CFA, said that more and more farmers are selling their land to cash in on large prices offered by urban dwellers and speculators. Farm auctioneers "are fully he said. His concern was echoed by Gordon Hill, president of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture, who said farmers are not confident that the government is interested in keeping them in business. PRICES DROPPED What the government promised, and what the government did, were two different things. Despite talk of guaranteed farm incomes, prices for materials and production continued to rise while the price of beef, hogs and dairy products dropped. Legislation improving farm credit programs was "out of date before the damn stuff passed out of Parliament." Farmers, Mr. Hill said, were upset by urban consumers who complain about high food costs but still come out in the country to buy farms for summer homes and winter snowmobile runs. Land prices were so high that farmers were asking Peackeeping force stays in Mideast UWITED NATIONS (Reuter) The United Nations Security Council .decided Monday to retain the UN Emergency Force in the Middle East for a further six months. The 13-to-O Security Council vote prolongs the life of the in- ternational peacekeeping force until Oct. 24. China and Iraq dissociated themselves from Monday's resolution. The force, now almost strong, was sent to the area to separate the warring Egyptian and Israeli armies under a Council resolution adopted last Oct. 25. Israel has refused to permit on its side of the ceasefire line troops from Poland, Ghana, Indonesia and Senegal, all countries which have no diplomatic relations with the Jewish state. themselves: "Why bother to stay in Finance Minister John Turner replied that the government is doing everything possible to en- courage farmers to stay on the land, and to pass farms on to sons and daughters. Farm policies were based on the premise that "one of the real crises in the next 10 or .15 years will be in food production." PROFITABLE VENTURE Mr. Munro said that food production must be a. profitable undertaking, or farmers would simply sell out to land speculators. In its annual brief to the cabinet, the federation said while the government in its throne speech in February had expressed plans to improve prices and incomes for farmers, few of these plans had been put into legislation. The brief, a summation of resolutions passed at the CFA's general meeting in Saskatoon two months ago, also warned that "consumers not be given the impression that a decline in food prices is in the cards." "Indeed, continued general NOOK will be Opening Soon! inflation will inevitably steadily raise farmers' costs of production, of which energy, directly and indirectiy, is a very signifi- cant factor." Food shortages and high prices during the last two years had shown that "the era of cheap food must come to a permanent the workman, investor and entrepreneur in agriculture... must get his pay." But while the government had promised a number of programs, there was "little yet firmly in place to ensure against recurrence of violent instability and low prices in the years ahead." The federation also called for more consultation before the government put new farm programs in place. Through its various provincial federations and affiliated groups, the CFA represents most of the country's farmers. DESIGNED AND MANUFACTURED IN LETHBRIDGE Prince Igor has taste.
