Prime Minister Trudeau emerged from the meeting about p.m. and declined to give any details of what went on. "Why do you fellows wait around lie asked report- ers, who had been standing out- side the cabinet room for sev- eral hours. "We're not going to have press conferences he said.

He laler went into Mr. Trudeau's Centre Block office, but said he was merely discussing departmental busi- ness. The long cabinet meeting was believed to have been called to give further consideration to the recommeodatioa of mediator H. Carl Goldenberg that Montreal mail truck drivers be incorpo- rated into the public service. This proposal has been re- jected by the drivers because it would cost them their member- ship in tbe Confederation of Na- tional Trade Unions. .Prior to the'cabinet meeting there were reports that the gov- ernment was ready to ils acceptance of the report and have the mail hauled by a sin- gle contractor. However, a spokesman for Postmaster-Gen- eral Eric Kierans said the rec- ommendation was being imple- mented. Mr. Kienra. declined com- ment ftbeii he emerged flora tbe cabinet meeting.

Bailey, executive director of tbe Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization, read as directed under a court-or- dered agreement a statement ordering controllers "who are fit and able" lo return on their next normal tour of duty. The order apparently fell on deaf ears. The Federal Aviation Administration said there was little noticeable change m the number of absent controllers who have been calling in sick EDMONTON (CP) The Al- berta legislature ended its 10th week of the 1970 session Friday with the Conservative oppoa- ion hurling accusations of whitewash and steamrolling tac- tics against the Social Credit government. The nine-member Conserva- tive opposition mounted an an- gry offensive accusing the gov- ernment of trying to tamper with tbe independence of om- budsman George B. McCWUn. They claimed the government has ordered a judicial inquiry to "whitewash" tbe ombuds- man's findings in the case o R. J. PhQipzyk, an Edmonton real estate salesman who was expelled in 1966 from the Ed- monton Co-operative L i 3 tin Bureau. The speaker ruled Lou Hynt man's (PC West demand for .a debate of nrgec public importance on the me ter out of order. Mr. McClellan said the cabl net had rejected his recom- mendations in the case after' re- ceiving his 53-page report, ac- ment remove the three-cents-a- allon tax on colored gasoline used for agriculture, was not in rder. He said the committee, head- ed by Dave Russell jary-Vietoria had no au- hority to recommend alterna- ive fiscal'policies to the gov ernment.

The government 'give noHce that tbe ombudsman's report since the dispute, began Wednes- day of last week. will be debated next Wednes- day. A motion, put forward by the government house leader, Mu- nicipal Affairs Minister Fred Colborne, instructs the ombuds- man to withhold his report to the legislature until the com- mission inquiry is completed and that the ombudsman make available to the commission all the evidence he has accumu- lated. It also asks the government lo consider, as recommended by the ombudsman, paying Mr. Philipzylt's living expenses and legal aid costs during the dura- tion of the inquiry.

(AP) The question of what happened to the original stenographic notes of testimony taken at the Mary Jo Kopechne inquest last January created a stir Friday, three days before the Dukes County grand jury opens its own independent investigatiian. Miss Kopechne, a former campaign secretary for the late Senator Robert F. 'Kennedy, drowned last July 18 when Sena- tor Edward M. Kennedy's car plunged off a narrow bridge. The notes of the testimony were taken by Harold T. McNeil and Sidney R. Lipmac, profes- sional court reporters from Bos- ton. Under orders of Judge James A. Boyle, who presided at the district court inquest, the notes were turned over to that court each day along with tbe typed transcript. By an order of the state Su- ircme Court, the transcript, the ing.

The most serious of tbe two continuing demonstrations is at Laurentian, where the univer- sity senate suspended all aca- demic activities Friday after the board1 of governors refused to meet a demand for a joint meeting to discuss administra- tion policies. The McMaster protest took on a comic aspect Friday when about 30 student protesters oc- cupied the president's office and carried on a debate on food services for 20 minutes before recognizing a man sitting beside the president's desk as acting president Dr. A. N. Bourns. A 22-hour sit-in by day-care supporters' and student activists at the U of T ended 'March 26 after university president 'Dr. .MH. Douglas Miller, Taber-Warner MLA, also attended the ban- quet. Mr. Clark said while other areas in North America are cutting back on foe expendi- tures for education, Alberta plans a 7.2 per cent increase next year. California reduced education costs by 10 per cent this year, he said. University enrolment will in- crease in Alberta by 18 to 22 per cent next year, he said. It costs Alberta million (o operate the three universities. Another million was allot- ted this year. Ontario has more student; but spent only J75 million and allotted omy an additional 'million. He gave full credit to tbe fed- eral government for payng half the cost of operating !he universities.
