Death Toll In Egyptian Ship Blast Hits 40 ALGIERS (AP)-The Egyptian ship Alexandria sank Friday after an explosion ripped through the vessel and caused heavy fire damage to the surrounding harbor area in the port of Bone. The newspaper Alger ce Soir said 40 persons were killed and 105 wounded in the blast and fire, and said there was no estimate of casualties among the crew ef the ship. Government inspectors were sent to Bone to determine if sabotage was involved. Most of the dead and injured were believed residents of the neighborhood adjacent to the dock area, where several buildings, including a hospital, were heavily damaged. Soviet and Bulgarian medics doing relief work in the area were summoned for assistance. Witnesses were quoted as saying a series of explosions was heard late Thursday night from deep inside the iron-hulled ship and that a fierce fire raged through the vessel. Explosions continued inside the ship as she settled into the water and finally sank about dawn. Sources on the scene said the oxplosions indicated the ship was carrying ammunition. The ship had left Algiers a few days earlier. Bone is 260 miles east of Algiers, near the Tunisian border. General Motors' sales and earnings were the highest ever reported by any company. Its chairman, Frederic G. Donner, and president, John F. Gordon, attributed the surge to expansion in economic activity and resulting consumer confidence.

The pro-Moscow leader of India's splintered Communist party said Friday a nationwide demonstration will be staged next month to protest sharp price rises and short supplies of wheat, rice and other basic items in (he slim Indian diet. S. A. A. Dangc, chairman of what calls itself the Communist party of India but which lost about 40 per cent of its membership last April in the split with the pro-Peking Reds, told newsmen the mass agitation effort will be launched Aug. 24-28. He said the pro-Chinese Com- j rnunists and all other opposition ! elcmenls will be invited to join • the protest against (he govern- 1 merit's failure to check food' , prices—which an official survey < j shows spiraled 12 per cent in! j New Delhi in May and June, \ \ Any price increase is immedi-! lately fell by India's ragged' i masses, who always are hard- i pressed to earn enough to keep i from starving. i With Indian Communist ranks split wide open and famine threatening some remote regions, the pro-Moscow leader clearly is trying to use the grave food situation and empty stomachs to make more trouble for Shastri's new government, and improve his faction's political stock. Authoritative sources said government leaders are worried that a Communist-led protest next month might touch off widespread bloodshed. They said a major effort is planned to increase food supplies and lower prices before the demonstration. There have been a number of demonstrations, lootings of grain dealers and near riots, and food lines have grown steadily longer and tempers shorter. A young farm woman staggered into a west Indian village two days ago and dropped dead of starvation while waiting in a line lo buy grain. In Hyderabad, a man stabbed another to death in a fight over who was first in a line. Together with the fact that India still is far from agricultural self-sufficiency, the food shortage arid high prices are blamed on the poor- spring harvest and heavy monsoon rains that ruined thousands of acres.
