Of wide interest was the quiet ceremony at Vancouver on Saturday morning, April 12th, when united in marriage Dora Grace, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. R. Vickery of Taber, to Dr. Gordon Mclaren Wilson , son of Rev. and Mrs. G. A. Wilson of Vancouver. The groom is the grandson of Dr. E. D. McLaren.

Canadian Memorial Chapel , decorated with cherry and apple blossoms and Easter lilies, was the setting for the ceremony, at which the groom's father, assisted by G. Harrison Villett, officiated.

The bride was given in marriage by her father and Miss Joy Vickery, sister of the bride, was maid of honor. Dr. Gordon Brown of Minneapolis was best man.

A turquoise blue smart jacket frock, was worn by the bride with white accessories, and she carried a bouquet of pink roses and smilax. The maid of honor wore a complementary redingote frock of dusty rose with navy accessories and a corsage of cream roses.

Following the ceremony the bridal party gathered at the home of Rev. and Mrs. G Harrison Villett for coffee.

Dr. and Mrs. Wilson will reside at Trail after a trip to the island.
