The Israel Government will not modify its stand on accepting no more than 100,000 Arab refugees, it was learned here today following a Cabinet meeting last night at which Foreign Minister Moshe Sharett reported on the current situation at the Lausanne peace talks and the most recent discussions between representatives of Israel and the State Department.

The Cabinet also approved the Israel representation to the International Civil Aviation Conference. The Cabinet ordered a country-wide increase in the police force to cope with a new series of crime which is assuming the proportions of a crime wave.
