Chinese praise Margaret Trudeau for healthy attitude to pregnancy By JOHN BURNS The Globe and Mail PEKING Margaret Tru- deau won herself many ad- mirers by undertaking such a tiring journey in her seventh month of pregnancy and reaf- firmed the favorable impres- sion thus created with the energy and vivacity she dis- played during the tour Premier Chou En-lai told Mrs. Trudeau, who is 24, that her visit was an example to III7GCR IT'S SINGER'S SALE OF THE YEAR!

COLLEGE SHOPPING MALL 2025 Mayor Magrath Drive Telephone 327-2243 Chinese womanood, whose traditional nostrums about pregnancy he deplored In an illuminating illustration he cited the fact that many Chinese officials have themselves transferred to new assignments during their final months of pregnancy, to avoid the embarrassment of appearing before their regular working fellows in that con- dition. Mrs. Trudeau made light of her condition throughout the tour and even joked about it with her Chinese companions during her visit to the Great Wall. Only once, during a visit to a maternity hospital, did the matter seem to weigh on her mind at all. Examining a six-month-old fetus that was displayed in a bottle in the hospital's laboratory, she remarked quietly that she found it strange that she could feel so detached about it, an observation that implied some surprise that the Chinese had chosen to show her the fetus at all While generally reserved during the visit, she had her moments of spontaneity One came at the banquet given in the prime minister's honor by Premier Chou when she spied a Danish diplomat's wife in a similarly advanced state of pregnancy in the receiving line. She paused for a moment's chat and seemed amused to discover that both babies were due at about the same time. Another came during her visit to the Peking Friendship Store, which caters exclusive- ly to foreigners Stopping at the clothing counter to buy a Mao jacket and matching cap for herself and her husband she entertained bystanders with an impromptu modelling display, poking faces at herself in a mirror on the counter while cameras whirred away. At one time she rejected a cap with the remark that "Pierre has a big then joined in the general hilarity the remark provoked. Mr Trudeau, who was himself uncharacteristically restrained during the tour, seemed especially solicitous towards his wife during the public occasions. He often held her hand, even when Premier Chou was at his side, and was careful to see that she was never left behind. Mrs. Trudeau also won plaudits for her dress. The flowing tapestry gown she wore to the premier's banquet made her one of the most elegant women in the hall, and the two blue pantsuits she alternated for the sightseeing portions of the visit one brushed denim, the other doubleknit were also chic. Sighed the wife of one senior West European diplomat, after shaking her hand at the banquet: "I wish we had a prime minister's wife like that." The rule that no Chinese accepts gifts from foreigners is set aside for visiting dignitaries, who often bear presents for the Chinese leaders What Mr. Trudeau brought with him was a polar bear rug for Chairman Mao Tse-tung and a sealskin parka for Madame Mao, as well as lesser gifts for other leading personalities including Premier Chou Two beavers for the Peking zoo and a Canadian-built operating table for a Peking hospital will be delivered later The gifts for the Maos were delivered in the face of some opposition within the bureaucracy in Ottawa Some officials thought it strange that a government that is pledged to protect the polar bear and the seal should lend its support to the hunters' cause by making a gift of their spoils Those who argued in favor of the gifts made much of the fact that the skin for Madame Mao's coat came not from a pup but from an adult seal, but conservationists found this unconvincing WASH CAREFULLY Improper laundering may damage the fire-resistant quality of children's clothing The Herald- Family Family planning delegates meet LONDON (CP) More than 600 delegates from 80 countries, including Canada, gathered here today for the opening of a week-long con- ference on world population problems under the auspices of the International Planned Parenthood Federation. The 21-year-old federation says the meeting has been called "to make a critical ap- praisal of our own work and to assess what solutions family planning can provide to the crisis of population growth." After opening ceremonies in Tamayo ot Colombia, the organization's president, says there is difficulty finding volunteers in rural areas of undeveloped countries and success in curbing population growth in those regions has not been great Delegates will also discuss the part that voluntary family planning can make to the United Nations-sponsored world population year in 1974. The UN program is aimed at encouraging greater govern- ment participation in family planning and greater public concern with the problems of London, the delegates move to population growth. the south coast resort of The world federation, a non- governmental body supported by grants from individuals and foundations the world, says Brighton for discussions dur- ing the remainder of the week. Among the Canadian dele- gates are Dr Lise Fortier of Montreal, national president of the Family Planning Federation of Canada, George Cadbury of Oakville, Ont., chairman of the international federation's governing body, Nancy Sutherland, Mississauga, Ont., and Brian Strehler, Toronto, executive director of the Canadian organization The Canadian delegation will also be joined by represenatives of the federal health department and the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) One of the topics likely to be discussed in detail is the inter- national federation's heavy dependence on volunteer workers and instructors as op- posed to the large-scale recruiting of professional statt LACKS VOLUNTEERS There appears to be general agreement in the federation that the calibre of volunteers has in the past been extremely high But Dr Fernando throughout it has dis- covered that abortion is still the most-widely practised method of birth control despite the fact that there is no shortage of contraceptive devices internationally. As a result, it sees as one its most pressing concerns the discovery of methods of dis- seminating information about contraception more widely and effectively. But delegates will also have to wrestle with the difficulty of how to centralize and im- prove family planning inter- nationally while still respecting differing attitudes and traditions among cultures and countries LOW AVERAGE At Seva Nilayam, a medical and social centre in Southern India partly supported by the USC, the cook earns 13 dollars a month plus his food.
