OTTAWA (CP) With the exception of southern Alberta, little seeding of grain has been carried out so far in the Prairie provinces, the Dominion Bureau of Statistics said Wednesday in the first of its series of tele- graphic reports on crop condi- tions throughout Canada. The bureau said rain and snow last week delayed field work in Manitoba and much of Saskatchewan. It was expected; however, that seeding would be general in Alberta by May 15 and in Saskatchewan by May 18. Surface soil moisture sup- plies are good in most districts jut low temperatures have de- .ayed pasture and weed growth. The DBS report, prepared with the help of a selected ?roup of crop correspondents rom the federal and provincial agriculture departments and jrivate crop observers, gave "ew further clues as to the af- 'ect of a Feb. 27 announcement by the federal government of acreage payments to induce vheat farmers to .cut their icreage this crop year. A' report last month by the bu- eau indicated wheat farmers intended' to plant only (Remember 'Mothers' Wootco BABY BUDGIES From newly-arrived stock. Delightful pets that are easily trained.

Wednesday's report said some seeding has been done in the Maritime provinces due to warm weather last week. Crop and pasture conditions gener- ally are a week late in Quebec, although in the south of the province temperatures allowed some field work to be done. In British Columbia, mild weather conditions throughout the winter and early spring per- mitted an early start on the land in southern parts of the province. Crop conditions by province: MANITOBA One to two weeks of favorable weather is needed before the land will be suitable for seed- ing. Severe floods have been re- ported at Gretna, Emerson, Carman and Gladstone. Cool, wet weather allowed little weed and pasture growth and feed supplies are low in the western districts. In the southwest, three inches of precipitation have been re- ported since April 1 and there has been no planting. In the Winnipeg area, rain and late snowfalls have waterlogged fields. Field work has been delayed across the province due to ei- ther snow or rain. SASKATCHEWAN Little seeding is reported in the area north of a line from the southwest to the northeast cor- ners of the province. To the south, some snow remains and cultivation has not yet started. It is expected that work on the land will be general by May 15 and seeding under way by May 18. Increased acreages are antici- pated for all special crops, the bureau said. ALBERTA Cool spring weather has caused slow melting of the light winter snowfall. As a result, water absorption in the soil has been good and surface moisture reserves are good in all areas with the exception of one or two Mints in the east-central and southwestern districts. The first field operations were reported at Taber hi mid-April and a week later work began in other areas and soon will be jeneral throughout the prov- ince. The harvest was com- ileted last fall in southern Al- )erta but in southern and north- :rn regions portions of the crop remained unharvested until this pring. Trudeau Works On New Que. Premier OTTAWA (CP) Is Prim Minister Trudeau trying t "capture" Robert Bourassa b !ore the Quebec Liberal leader takes over as premier? Mr. Trudeau and Ms chie Quebec lieutenant, Regional Ex pansion Minister Jean Marc hand, have been busy publicl interpreting what Mr. Bourass will do as premier. They have even beer, sayin what Mr. Bourassa thinks, be fore the premier-elect can sa himself what is in his mind o major issues. Some observers say the objec of this operation is to attempt tt condition Canadians to what Mr Bourassa will do as premie and to get Mr. Bourassa to con form to these expectations. Others say Mr. Bourassa iis own man with his own man date and the country will jus have to wait to see what ha does, on his own, without anj Ottawa coaching. Since Mr. Bourassa won the Quebec election April 29, Mr Trudeau has told reporters that the Quebec Liberal leader will: the province's eco- nomic ills only through co-oper- ation with Ottawa, the other provinces and private investors; c c e p t federal-provincia. shared-cost programs which the previous Quebec administration rejected; Ottawa credit for fed- eral expenditures in Quebec; about foreign adven tares with' France; a new national park for Quebec; revive special status or the two-nation theory. proceed with the fed- eral-provincial constitutional re- view; Quebecers more if he wants more tax revenue instead of asking Ottawa for more money; up for re-election in 1974. Mr. Marchand said Saturday that Ottawa-Quebec relations would improve. He knew Mr. Bourassa per- sonally "and I don't think he would be critical only for the purpose of being critical." Quebec and Ottawa seem bound for easier relations even if Mr. Bourassa does only half the tilings Mr. Trudeau and Mr. Marchand say he will do. Military Equipment Dropped NAMAO (CP) The Cana- dian forces this week dropped a 12-ton bulldozer and a road grader from a C-130 Hercules transport plane to complete Canada's first successful para- chute drop of heavy equipment. An attempt to drop the bull- dozer three weeks ago failed when something went wrong with the parachutes and the Bulldozer dug a two-foot hole in the ground. New equipment was used for the successful drop near Na- mao, 10 miles north of Edmon- on. The vehicles landed within 50 yards of the target area and vere undamaged, a Canadian Torces spokesman said. The vehicles were started soon af- er the drop. The exercise, by the tactical ir" movement section of the ield service support unit, was n preparation for a similar rop planned for May 13 at Harbor on Southampton sland at the mouth of Hudson "fey- The Canadian Forces have announced plans to construct an airstrip at Coral Harbor big nough to accommodate Her- ules transport planes.
