Wall SI nnon NEW YORK (AP) Stock market prices nosed lower loday in trading as news of Die Vielnam escalation dampened buying interest. The Dow Jones average of 30 industrials at noon was off 1.53 al 866.13. The bombing of Hanoi and Haiphong during the weekend made investors uneasy, brokers sairi. It cast a pall over the market that continuing news of higher first-quarter corporate profits could not erase, they said. The Associated Press 60-stock average at noon was 1.0 at 344.0.

The Elzikom Manybcrrlcs district was not hit by the icavier snowfalls that have prevailed through most ol southern Alberta, during the past several weekends. Farmers have been on and off the land cultivating and weeding in preparation for spring seeding. The last heavy snowfall of the season hit here at the entl of February. Some two inches fell during the 25 weekend and another two inches April 1. During Ihe rest of the lime drying west winds have swept throughout the southeast and the land was in near icler.l con- dition prior lo the snow of the past weekend. District agriculturists report calving is now at its peak with few losses so far. Dugouts and other stock wa- tering impoundments are near capacity and pastures nre showing strong spring growth. Heavier snow and soil mois- ture gradually increases in a westerly direction from I'' short grass country. The lighter snowfall has been good for the wildlife popula- tons, particularly the antelope in the south-east. Several herds in excess of 100 head can be seen i TI some areas 1 his sprirg where there were hardly any one year ago Indications are many of the animals relumed from Mou tana over winter.
