From AP-Reuter WASHINGTON (CP) Im- proved Arab forces, aided by Soviet-built surface-to-air missiles, have slowed Israeli counter-attacks, indicating there may be no quick knockout blow in the Mid-east flareup. U.S. military analysts report. While some Israeli generals maintain the tide has turned in their favor. U.S defense and other analysts disagree "The Israelis are proceeding about as expected but they are behind one official said "The Arabs are doing better this time than they have in the past." Other U.S. officials suggest that so far there have been no decisive turns favoring one side or the other in the current battle. However. Robert McCloskey, state department spokesman, said the in- dications are that the fighting is escalating U.S officials said also the UN Security Council is unlike- ly to take any major ceasefire action until the war is decided militarily. This assessment seems to be similar to the mood prevailing among diplomats at the UN RUSSIANS SUSPECTED Asked whether the U.S. is satisfied that the Soviet Union is acting responsibly in the Middle East crisis. McCloskey said: "I don't want to take an oath in blood about their (the Russians) at- titude in a crisis situation He said the U.S. has made no proposals to the Security Council so far because it. does not want to reduce its flex- ibility in order to reach agree- ment with other countries later on a possible common approach. The key to swift Israeli vic- tory in the 1967 war was its mastery of the air, gained in a surprise pre-emptive strike catching much of the Arab air force on the ground. This air dominance permitted coordi- nated warplane and armor as- saults that decimated Egyp- tian tank and infantry units But this time, U.S. sources said, the Israeli air force fac-. ed serious problems trying to knock out Soviet-built surface- to-air missiles installed after the 1967 six-day both the Egyptian and Syrian fronts. ACTION LIMITED Until these missiles are neu- tralized, Israeli warplanes cannot range freely against Egyptian and Syrian armor and infantry formations. Sources said that about 35 of the approximately 40 Israeli warplanes lost by early Tues- day fell to surface-to-air mis- siles, principally the lethal SAG. designed to deal with low-flying planes. The Egyptians and Syrians are reported to have lost about 100 warplanes, some on the ground when Israel at- tacked five Egyptian airfields and some Syrian fields If the reports are accurate, each side would have lost more than 10 per cent of its air striking power. Intelligence assessments reaching Washington suggest the Egyptians have penetrated the Sinai along an irregular front ranging from five to about 15 miles east of the Suez Canal, short ot Israel's main Sinai defence line based in key passes through high ground. FORCES LISTED The Egyptians were said to have some 70.000 men and be- tween 600 and 800 tanks, some powerful Soviet- manufactured T62 main battle vehicles, on the Sinai The Israelis have claimed to have knocked out about 11 bridges the Egyptians threw across the canal Saturday, but under cover of darkness, the Egyptians floated pontoon bridges, permitting reinforce- ments and supplies to cross the canal, U.S. sources said. The probable Israeli strategy, if surface-to-air mis- siles and artillery on the west side of the Suez Canal can be suppressed, would be to isolate, envelop and trap the five Egyptian divisions in the Sinai. On the Syrian front, U.S. ex- perts said, five Syrian divisions and an estimated 800 tanks oppose the Israelis. Armor losses on both sides have been heavy Reports to the Pentagon estimate that 300 Syrian tanks and about 150 Israeli tanks were knocked out up to Tuesday morning. SYRIANS CONFRONTED Sources said that in the ear- ly stages of the fighting, the Israeli air force tried to block Syrian breakthroughs in the Golan Heights, before diverting F4 Phantoms, A4 Skyhawks and other fighter bombers to the Suez front. One report, apparently bas- ed on information from Egyp- tian sources, said the Egyp- tian army's first objective was to grab territory as far as about 20 miles deep in the Sinai, possibly including the vital mountain passes, and to hold this ground until a ceasefire was arranged. But the same sources said the Egyptian goal has been broadened by what is describ- ed as Egyptian President Anwar Sadat's view that his armies can reclaim the entire Sinai.

Telephone 328-9231 can maintain what is describ- ed as an all-out pace of fighting. Still unexplained is how the Israelis allowed themselves to be surprised. They acknowledge they had information on significant Syrian and Egyptian troop movements a few days before the attacks were launched But they did not take the movements seriously until they learned that the families of Soviet advisers and some of the adviers themselves were flying out of Syria and Egypt. The Israelis sent out mobiliza- tion orders only a relatively few hours before the attacks. Waldheim may ask for peace UNITED NATIONS (Router) Secretary- Genera! Kurt Waldheim of the United Nations has decided to break his silence on the Mid- dle East crisis and call for an end to hostilities, reliable sources said today. They said he would issue the appeal either in the Security Council if that body resumed debate on the situation today, or in a written statement. Mr. Waldheim is said to be alarmed by the possibility that the conflict might be broadened by the involvement of other states which so far have kept out of it. with un- foreseeable consequences for world peace Observers doubted that he would issue a flat appeal for a ceasefire, but thought he would rather caution the com- batants of the risks entailed in a continuation of the hostilities. There has been some criti- cism of his failure to make any public comment on the fighting, but informed sources attributed his silence to the belief that a large majority of the UN membership considers Egypt and Syria as having been within their rights to strike at the occupying Israeli forces. The New York Times in an editorial Wednesday strongly criticzed the Security Council, and the UN as a whole, for its failure to act in the emergen- cy- Mr. Waldheim, asked if he was "irritated" by the criti- cism, said it was for the UN itself to react, not its secretary-general. But he acknowledged that he was weighing whether to issue a statement in the council. Mr. Waldheim said reports that he was trying to have the council called into session were inaccurate, although! he understood some members wished to address the council, which has been in recess since Tuesday evening RECEIVES AWARD HAMILTON (CP) The Hamilton chapter of Parents Without Partners has won an international community ser- vice award from the parent organization.

Olson: Alberta should cash in CALGARY (CP) The Alberta government should jump at the chance to use the federal government's 40-cent- a-barrel oil export tax for increased provincial revenues. Bud Olson former federal Liberal agriculture minister, said here The Medicine Hat Liberal made the comment at a news conference following a caucus meeting ol the Alberta branch of the federal Liberal Party. Premier Peter Lougheed's "preoccupation" with the ex- port tax was a "camouflage for the real issue" the federal government's request Sept 4 for oil companies to voluntarily freeze domestic prices The premier earlier agreed that United States companies should be charged fair market prices for Canadian oil. he said Therefore it was logical that the federal government should collect the difference between Canadian prices and would market prices in the form of an export tax. Instead of criticizing the tax. Premier Lougheed should be fighting to channel the money collected into Alberta, he said. "I hope that most of it com- es back to the province perhaps even all of it." RAPS OWN PARTY Mr. Olson was critical of his own party for its "painful silence" on what he called contradictions in the premier's position Another caucus member. Calgary oilman Nick Taylor, said he didn't like the Liberal party approach any more than Ihe premier's He said he favored a free market system to determine pnres with the government involvement in long-term planning and in injecting rmaltv monies into troubled sectors of the economy "Cheap gas for Ontario is hardly my idea of helping a "depressed area CAREERS WAREHOUSE SUPERVISOR required by ASGROW CANADA, LTD.
