Juan Manuel Salvat( center) was the leader of the raiding party. (AP Wire- photo). Breaking of Neutrality Act Feared in Attack on Havana By BARRY SCHWEID WASHINGTON (AP)-The government pressed an investigation today to determine if the shelling of Havana violated the U.S. neu-1 trality act. I The Stale Department already j has pinned on a Miami-based exiled Cuban students group the l responsibility for Friday night's i attack, but has not said whether j the raiders sailed from this coun-' try. i The neutrality law prohibits j launching from U.S. soil armed j attacks on countries not at war; with the United States. The Jus-i tice Department is trying to find! out if prosecutions under this law | are called for. In a Miami news conference; Sunday, Juan Manuel Salvat, leader of the students group, declined to say where the ships used i in the off-shore shelling of Miramar suburb were based. But, he declared, "I don't feel we have violated any law of any country." In holding the Students Revolutionary Directorate responsible for the sortie the Slate Department warned Saturday that "any repe-! tition of such action by any group could involve Ihe provisions of the Neutrality Act." A spokesman said the government had no advance knowledge of the attack. While U.S. officials personally have some sympathy for exiled Cubans, they take the view that such hit-and-run attacks 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 to keep a watch on every nook and cranny of the southeastern coastline of the United States. Airports and smaller landing fields are under constant surveillance, they said. Salvat said he and 22 other men ranging in age from 19 to 23 used a PT boat and a 31-foot cruiser in the raid. More than 60 shots I were fired at Miramar during the : seven-minute attack and a hotel headquarters of Soviet bloc tech• nicians was damaged. ! "We did it as Cubans seeking : freedom for our homeland," he isaid. "We did it to show Demo: cratic republics the world over ! that we mean business. ; "I feel that if the Communists in Cuba are entitled to the sup- i port of the Soviet Union, the j Cuban democratic movement too | is entitled to support of the demo- i cratic republics of the world." j He named 12 men as on the i raiding party with him and withheld the names of 11 others to protect their families, still in Cuba. The U.S. Coast Guard, under Orleans to Decide Integration Steps j State Department orders, im- .pounded at Marathon, Fla., two j private boats apparently used in the shelling. j In a puzzling aftermath of (he i raid there was an unexplained j interruption Sunday in normal I telephone and cable communica- ;tions between the United States j and Cuba. ; An American Telephone & Tele| graph Co. spokesman said no ex- .planation was offered for the i break in communications. "They j (the Cubans) just weren't answering," he said. After inspecting damage Inflict- j ed by the raiders, Castro said in a formal statement: "We hold the United States government responsible." The Communist newspaper Hoy, in a front-page editorial, brushed aside the U.S. government's disclaimer of responsibility. Washington is notorious, Hoy said, for its "connivance with counterrevolutionaries. Without the cooperation of (U.S.) authorities the raid could not succeed." NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The Orleans Parish School Board meets tonight to decide future steps in school desegregation after pokesman i gaining preliminary approval of Man Talked Down From High Perch HOUSTON (SpU - A former West Lake, La., man was "talked down" from his 150-foot high perch on a television tower here Sunday night after he had threatened to jump. He was identified as Cecil Johnson, 21, who recently moved lo Houston from West Lake. His wife collapsed as the man reached the ground. She had to be carried from the scene. A relative told police that Johnson was beset with family problems. He climbed the tower of television station KTRK. Witnesses said that at one lime, before police arrived, the man was about 200 feel up the lower. His brother-in-law, David Varnell, said Johnson called him and said he would climb Ihe lower and jump.

The Western powers proposed to continue working for a treaty to ban tests in all environments — but with provisions for international on-site inspection of suspicious tremors which might indicate underground tests. Less than two hours after the West offered the partial ban at the 17-nation disarmament conference, Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Vasily V. Kuznetsov turned thumbs down. Kuznetsov told the meeting he would study the Western draft treaty for a partial ban excluding underground tests. But his subsequent remarks left no doubt his government would reject it. U.S. Ambassador Arthur H. Dean presented the Western proposal at the 7th session of the 17- nalion disarmament conference. Dean also put before the conference a second British-American draft treaty to ban tests in all environments for all time. Pean said that this draft includes ideas expressed by the neutralist delegations at the Geneva conference and takes account of improved western methods of detecting underground explosions. But he stressed it also provides for international inspection on the site of a suspicious earth tremor, a provision that assured in advance its rejection by the Russians. He said the United States and Britain, while still preferring a comprehensive treaty including a ban on underground nuclear explosions, were offering the. partial ban in the belief that it would represent "a substantial positive gain for society." Kuznetsov was quoted by Western conference sources as saying the Western proposal for a parting ban was "a stimulus to nuclear war." The Soviet delegate insisted that any treaty banning atomic explosions must include underground nuclear tests.

The election of a Constituent Assembly scheduled Sept. 2 was put off indefinitely. No one could forecast when and how Algeria would obtain an elected legislature and an effective elected civilian government. Wilaya No. 4 issued a fiercely worded statement accusing the Political Bureau of betraying the Algerian revolution. The statement, read lo a crowded news conference, demanded an emergency meeting of the old revolutionary "parliament," the National Council of the Algerian Revolution (CNRA), to revise the nation's political leadership. The 72-man council met in Libya during the Algerian war and laid down general policy for the nationalists. Members of the council belong to various factions of the National Liberation Front (FLN), the dominant nationalist group during the rebellion against France. Their public following has never been tested at the polls. By HOWARD BENEDICT CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.
