JERUSALEM (JTA) - The talks between the Labor Alignment and Likud on forming a broad-based government have been finged with tension as Likud leaders insist that the issue of the Premiership should be subject to negotiations and that Likud, like the Labor Alignment, would continue parallel negotiations with other parties in an effort to form the basis for an alternative coalition should the current efforts by Labor Party leader Shimon Peres to form a government fail. The position of the Labor Alignment is that the issue of the Premiership is not subject to negotiations since President Chaim Herzog gave Peres the mandate to form the hew government. At that time, Herzog said that the nation desires a national unity government and that "the country needs a quick decision." Peres has 21 days, from Aug. 5, to form Government Warns Americans Against Going To Leningrad WASHINGTON (JTA) .-. The State Department issued an advisory last week warning Americans against going to Leningrad because of the "unlawful detentions" of U.S. tourists and the "ar- "Bitrary" search of their luggage in the Soviet city. While Jewish organizations concerned with Soviet Jewry have apparently expected the move, they had no immediate reaction on how this would affect their efforts to keep in contact with Jewish refuseniks in Leningrad. The advisory came after an American marine guard and the U.S. Consul in Leningrad were beaten by Soviet uniformed and plainclothes police last week outside the Consulate. There was! no mention of this in the advisory. 7 Instead, the advisory, read by State Department deputy spokesman Alan Romberg, said that' there has been a "notable increase in the number of incidents of harassment involving : Americans in the Soviet Union. The majority of serious incidents has occurred in the Leningrad area." .,.' The advisory noted "that there has been "unlawful detention of tourists by the Soviet security organs following innocent contacts with Soviet citizens" and that tourists have been denied the right to contact the U.S. Consulate despite the U.S,-So- viet Consular Convention which gives them this right. The advisory also said "American tourists have been also subject to arbitrary and in many cases unjustifiably embarrassing searches of their personal effects on arriving or departing from Leningrad International Airport. The Soviet au- -thorities have riot responded in a satisfactory manner to our urgent request that they act immediately to correct this situation.'' 75th Anniversary To Be Celebrated By Young Judaea "Are you now or were you ever a member of Young Judaea, Junior Hadassah or a camper at Tel Yehuda in Barryville, N.Y:?"
