"It's quite a joke that I was a John Turner man at the time, but my wife and daughters were all for Trudeau," he said Thursday night. The prime minister invited Margaret to Ottawa to meet his mother at Christmas, 1969; The following Easter, Mr. Trudeau came to West Vancouver to "meet" her parents. "We've more or less known since then that they'd get married," Mrs. Sinclair said. Pierre and Margaret saw each other often last year while she worked in Ottawa. In the past sue months, with Margaret living at home in the exclusive British Properties district of West Vancouver, their meetings have been secret. "She's really been preparing for this day all the time," her Designs own ' mother said. "She's been learn-i ing French and it has been a lot of fun having her at home." Margaret has always kept her outings with the prime minister secret, as he had requested, and even two of her own sisters and her grandmother thought they were coming to an anniversary party Thursday instead of to a wedding reception. Margaret's 23-year-old sister, Rosalind, a radio technician, was bridesmaid and she wore a dress in dark blue wool of the same pattern as the white wedding gown. Her other three sisters- Heather (Mrs. Tom Walker) 28, Janet, 25, and Betsy, 19-were also at the wedding. Asked what she thought of her daughter marrying a 51-year-old man, Mrs. Sinclair replied: "He may be old but he's a young man at heart. They are very well suited to each other and it has been a very happy courtship." And sister Janet chimed in: 'They are so much in love it is incredible. They can't take their eyes off each other." gown VANCOUVER (CP) - Margaret Trudeau's elegant, caftan-style wedding gown was entirely her own creation. Not only did she design the rather unconventional gown, but she also sewed it herself down to the last fine stitch. The simple, white wool gown with silk train has its own hood which takes the place of the traditional veil as a head-covering. To design the rest of her trousseau, Mrs. Trudeau chose West Vancouver designer Peter Plunkett-Norris whose "closed clientele" shop has a preferred-customer list of fashion conscious-women. She went to Plunkett-Norris' salon in October, telling him only that she was marrying a diplomat and would be going to Russia so her clothes would have to be warm. "She wanted everything midi, her favorite length," Plunkett-Norris said. "Other than that, she left everything up to us- didn't fuss or worry-just gave us her complete confidence. The only stipulation was: nothing ostentatious as her husband was fond of simplicity." She had no over-all color scheme for her trousseau. One of the most beautiful items in the collection is a sari evening gown made from material given to her mother by Prime Minister Nehru of India.

One thing is certain whether or not librarians wear the stylish shorts: no once can blame chief librarian, Harry H. Easton. Mr. Easton, claiming to be a "mere male" unschooled in female fashions, says "no male has any competence, authority or influence in this field. " If the staff association finds them acceptable, "then I'll have to go along. "I have no desire, nor will 1 add or abet any movement to influence feminine styles in a regressive manner." Now the all-female association has to decide for itself, and president Phylis Freedman says they'll remember the libraries have no air conditioning and are "unbearable" in summer. Librarians also do a lot of bending to lower shelves. BEAUTY PLUS BRAINS - Mrs. Margaret Trudeau poses in the self-designed, self-sewn wedding gown she wore to be wed to the Prime Minister.
