The Cuban leader insulted President Kennedy and said he was pursuing "a stupid policy toward Cuba." WASHINGTON (UPI) — Firemen's Union President H. E. Gilbert urged today that Congress put railroad tol t „ . . i j rules negotiations in "a goldfish bowl" under its direc- Thc bearded Communist leader Uon to g * t Q gtrikefree se6t tlement. Gilbert told a special Saturday session of the Senate Commerce Committee also called on his followers in Latin America to revolt against their governments and unveiled a Cuban-written song, "The March of Latin America." to inspire them. He pledged the support of the Soviet Union ahd the entire Communist bloc. Becomes Violent In his address in the Plaza of the Revolution here, Castro marked the 10th anniversary of his unsuccessful attack on the Moncada army barracks in Santiago, Cuba, with one of the most violent attacks on the U.S. since he came into power in 1959. But his charge that Washington had "swindled" him out of $10 million worth of ransom goods pledged for the release of the 1,113 Cuban Bay of Pigs prisoners came as a surprise. "The United States was obliged to pay $53 million but they paid only $43 million and they are absolute swindlers," he told a roaring crowd estimated by the governors at several hundred thousand. Charges Swindle New York Attorney James B. Donovan, who handled the negotiations for the prisoners' release, "was prevented from fulfilling the agreements with us 100 per cent/' Castro said. 1 'The American Red Cross owes us $10 million and the U.S. government is trying to swindle the Cuban people in a shameful way," he charged. (In Washington, a Red Cross spokesman said "as far as we knew, everything was delivered." The last of nine shiploads of ransom goods arrived in Havana earlier this month, he said.* British and US Slow Down African Rush UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (UPI) Stern opposition by the United States and Britain sent an African resolution demanding immediate independence for Portuguese territories in Africa back into consultation today. U.S. Ambassador Adlai E. Stevenson, while supporting self-determination for Angola, Mozambique and Portuguese Guinea, suggested that Secretary General Thant appoint a special U.N. representative to preside over independence negotiations between Portugal and African leaders. Indicates Dangers British Ambassador Sir Patrick Dean said the resolution, sponsored in the Security Council by Ghana, Morocco and the Philip* pines and backed by 32 African countries — the entire continental representation here except South Africa—would "drive Portugal into a position of isolation." Both objected that the resolution was couched in terms of demands and orders which the council is empowered to issue against threats to or breaches of the peace, or in cases of aggression. None such exists in the Portuguese-African crisis, they said. Anglo-American opposition to the resolution stung the Africans. "The United States and the United Kingdom," said Foreign Minister John Karefa-Smart of Sierra Leone, "have accused thi Africart countries of threatening the peace and calm existing there. that such action would give a "shot in the arm"'to the four-year-old rail dispute. The union leader opposed President Kennedy's proposal, under consideration by the committee, to turn the dispute over to the Interstate Commerce Commission. Gilbert said Kennedy's plan amounts to compulsory arbitration, even if supporters may regard it as "just a little bit" of compulsory arbitration. Under Observation Instead, Gilbert proposed that bargaining sessions proceed between railroad management and the five rail brotherhoods under "congressional direction and observation." He said that Congress might assign a joint committee to ride herd on the session and make pe­ riodic reports on the attitudes of the parties "and their conduct of good faith." Gilbert said in an interview with United Press International that the idea would be to place negotiations in a "goldfish bowl." Gilbert's basic complaint against the President's strike settlement proposal was that it would be "the hole in the dike" for compulsory arbitration. As to the single issue which vitally concerns his union — the work rule which would remove an estimated 32,500 firemen from the cabs of diesel locomotives, Gilbert said the union does not contend that no firemen posts on diesels can be abandoned. He said the union, in a letter to Labor Secretary W. Willard Wirtz, has recently underscored its willingness to approve a formula which would eliminate 5,500 jobs. • * \ Occurs as Tito Reaches Locale SKOPJE, Yugoslavia (UPI) A "minor tremor" rocked the center of earthquake-stricken Skopje today just as President Josip Broz Tito began an inspection tour. Yugoslav newsmen near Tito reported the tremor wobbled the earth a few seconds after the grim-faced leader stepped into the drove to the outskirts. His attractive wife Jovanka remained at home. Tito left his car on the of the once proud, now ruined main square that bears his name. The old soldier did not flinch, the reports said.

Tito was accompanied by Vice President Aleksandar Rankovic and Federal Assembly President Edvard Kardelj, according to the official Yugoslav news agency Tanjug. Watches Rescue Teams He saw rescue teams searching for victims among Skopje's many new buildings. Tito had done extensive building in Skopje, blending ancient and modern in a pattern combining 20th century vigor with old-world charm.

The 187-room Macedonia Hotel, on the square, collapsed completely and only about a dozen of its occupants are known to have survived.

They dug without letup to try to reach the injured man, believed buried in a crevice under tons of masonry. The army rushed in food and chemical supplies for the injured and an estimated 100,000 homeless. Kennedy Gets Inside Facts From Envoy HYANNIS PORT. Mass.
