WASHINGTON gov- ernment pressed an investigation today to determine if the.shelling of Havana violated the- U.S. neu- trality act.

In holding the Students Revolu- tionary Directorate responsible for the -sortie the State Department warned-Saturday that "any repe- tition of such action by any group could involve the provisions of-the Neutrality Act" A" spokesman said the government had no. ad- vance knowledge of the attack. While 'U.S. have some sympathy for exiled they take the view that such hit-and-run attack; only serve to. feed Prime Minister Fidel Castro's claim that he needs Communist arms to build up his defenses. These officials point out that it .is virtually impossible vto keep- a watch on every nook and. cranny of the southeastern coastline of the United States.
