Blasted, Jerusalem (tFl A train from Cairo to Haifa was blown up todny on the coastnl plain, killing 40 persons and injuring 60, the government announced. Most of the victims were Arabs. The blast occurred at Bir.ynmina, 20 miles south of Haifa. The engine and four coaches of the train were derailed. The train, was en route to Haifa, major Palestine port, A government spokesman said he believed there were few if any British among tho casualties. Blast In Jew Area The blast occurred in a predominately Jewish area, and observers expressed belief it was Jewish retaliation for Arab attacks on Jewish transports.

The spokesman said the if a Train 40 Die had not asked for government help in escorting Jewish food convoys Into Jerusalem, Jews said their food supplies were "dangerously low." Items already rationed by the Jews themselves are bread, at about three slices a day, one egg a week two for children butter and sugar. Meat so far is unrationcd, but extremely scarce, save for sausages and dried meat products. The rationing apparently was necessitated by continued Arab attacks on Jewish convoys and other Interference in the moving of food nnd supplies to the city's Jews. Jewish spokesmen voiced pessimism for the future unless the convoys can get through. At present, Arabs control all the roads leading to Jerusalem. Bakers said a further bread cut would be necessary unless convoys arrive. Jewish sources said that in southern Palestine Jewish settlements also are feeling the pinch. Residents of Hebron.

Ross suld tlie board's report will not bo inade public until "sometime after the President's return, from WiUlamsburg" on Saturday. The inquiry board brought its report to Mr. Truman just after noon. The next possible step under the Taft-Hartley law's emergency strike procedures is n White House request to the Justice department to seek a court order to end the strike. It was indicated the Justice department was ready to go Into court for the injunction promptly on getting the President's go-ahead. The three-man inquiry board's job was merely to report the facts on the pension dispute which caused the strike, not to make any recommendation for settlement.
