    ISRAEL'S AMBASSADOR TO THE UNITED STATES, GENERAL YITZHAK RABIN, REPORTED TO HIS GOVERNMENT'S CABINET IN JERUSALEM TODAY (SUNDAY, MARCH 15) AT A SPECIAL MEETING CALLED TO DISCUSS CONTINUED WHITE HOUSE SILENCE ON ISRAEL'S REQUEST FOR MORE JET FIGHTER-BOMBERS.

    ALSO PRESENT AT THE MEETING WERE ISRAEL'S PRIME MINISTER, MRS. GOLDS MEIR, CHIEF OF STAFF BAR-LEV And HIS ADJUTANT; DEFENCE MINISTER MOSHE DAYAN, FOREIGN MINISTER ABBA EBAN AND OTHER SENIOR GOVERNMENTAL MINISTERS.

    GENERAL RABIN WAS SUMMONED HOME FOR TOP-LEVEL CONSULTATIONS ON FRIDAY (MARCH 13), 12 DAYS AFTER THE 30-DAY DEADLINE PRESIDENT NIXON HAD PUBLICLY SET HIMSELF FOR ANNOUNCING A DECISION ON ISRAEL'S REQUEST FOR 25 ADDITIONAL PHANTOM JETS AND 80 SKYHAWKS, AS WELL AS INCREASED ECONOMIC AID.

    THERE WAS NO OFFICIAL REACTION IN JERUSALEM TODAY AT AMERICAN REPORTS THAT PRESIDENT NIXON HAD DECIDED AGAINST SUPPLYING ISRAEL WITH ADDITIONAL PLANES FOR THE TIME BEING. THE CABINET HAS DISMISSED THE REPORT AS SPECULATION OF AN UNNECESSARILY PESSIMISTIC NATURE, AND AWAITS OFFICIAL WORD FROM WASHINGTON. BUT THE ISRAELI PRESS IN GENERALLY CONVINCED THAT PRESIDENT NIXON WILL REFUSE FURTHER PLANES.
