EAST (Continued from Page One) knocking out or seizing 200 Egyptian tanks may have been conservative. •Israeli authorities have said the Egyptians massed some 900 tanks in Sinai including about 200 in the southern area near Hie Israeli port of Elath. This jibes with American intelligence stimates made before (lie war broke out. No one here can say for sure how many tanks the Egyptians might have pulled back to the west side of the Suez Canal. But U. S. military men doubt the Egyptians can successfully counterattack. It seems fairly clear that the lightening Israeli stroke against Egypt and the apparent defeat of Jordan have drastically altered the balance of power in the Middle East, perhaps for years to come. Ground combat with Syrian forces has been comparatively limited up to now. Some U.S. military analysts believe the Israelis were satisfied to hold off the Syrians while disposing of the two major threats — Egypt and Jordan. However, according to reports reaching here, Syria's air force suffered severely along with the air forces of Egypt and Jordan. Developments in the war suggest a considerable part o; the Soviet Union's $2-billion Investment in arms to Egypt, Syria and Iraq may have gone up in fire and smoke. So also may have a good portion of the $36 million in U.S. military aid to Jordan and $46 million in U.S. arms assistance to Iraq.

U.S. Command reported 33 of the enemy were killed and five captured while losses to the U.S.-Vietnamese group were light. * * * Ten miles east of Saigon, the guerrillas scored a success by collapsing a 200-foot bridge across a major rural route.
