(AP) - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., shaking hands with people who contributed $1 bills to aid the Mississippi march, urged them to be in Jackson when the march ends there a week from today. "If you can't join us on the march now, join us when we get to Jackson," he told a rally Friday night in Green- Soviet Gag For Castro Speculated Cuban Leader Out Of Foreground Of Events Since May By BEN F. MEYER WASHINGTON (AP) - Some Washington analysts believe the Soviet Union may have ordered Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castro to slop talking and take a back seat in his country's affairs. , Whether he has been stripped of power, the analysts say, remains to be seen. The State Department took public notice Thursday of reports that Castro's regime faces "growing popular dissatisfaction." Press officer Robert Mc-Closkey also noted that "it is a fact that Castro uncharacteristically has not been in the foreground of events since May 1." The Cuban Prime Minister was reported Friday to have concluded an inspection trip to one of the provinces. Analysts here are basing the theory that Moscow may have gagged Castro on persistent reports that the Soviet Union has found some of his recent activities very troublesome. Earlier this year Castro engaged in a prolonged feud with Yugoslavia, a nation that has shown signs of independence from the Communist bloc. The Castro regime's outbursts against Yugoslavia came as the Kremlin appeared (o be making a concerted effort to avoid further breaches among bloc nations in light of its continuing battle with Communist China.

King promised there would be entertainment at the end of the march, including, he said Frank Sinatra, Marlon Brando, Burt Lancaster, Sammy Davis Jr., Gregory Peck and rock 'n' roll singer James Brown. "If you know these people you had better come and see them Saturday night," King said. Several of the younger people chanted, "I'm going to catch a bus down there." Earlier, the rally heard Hosea Williams, director of voter registration and political education for King's Southern Christian Leadership Conference, urge them to "get that vole." "If we can die in Viet Nam, we can die in Mississippi," Williams said. "I'm sorry I don't have but one life to give for this damnable place, Mississippi.'' Said King: "You all know as well as I do an individual takes his life in his own hands when he asserts his rights in Mississippi." During Friday's march, the demonstrators encountered children waving Confederate flags and a sound truck blaring a Ku Klux Klan song. A white man doused them with a hose and a poisonous snake was found in a truck carrying newsmen along the march route.
