Stock Market Swings Downward As Prices Reach 15-Month Low; Ike to Talk With Macmillan, Moffet

By The ASSOCIATED Press

NEW YORK, Feb. 11--The stock market met its first major test of 1957 today and flunked it.

The market fell through the "floor" of the 1956 low--which had provided buying support on four past occasions--and slipped to its lowest level in 15 months.

Values melted in the steepest one-day break since Oct. 10, 1955--which was the second "Blue Monday" following President Eisenhower's heart attack.

As leading issues were clipped 1 to 4 points in what analysts called a technical decline with no fresh news factors behind it the quoted value of stocks listed on the New York Stock Exchange dropped an estimated four billion dollars, based on the decline in the average.

The Associated Press average of 60 stocks fell $3.30 to $168.90, lowest point since Nov. 2, 1955 when it stood at $168.80.

The Dow-Jones industrial average fell 8.85 to 457.44.
