I recommend that you do this the automatic  (dare 
I say proper ;-)) way, with two simple commands 
and the titlesec package (so you should change 
your manually typed uppercase titles back to 
normal).  The first command is  a titlesec 
command to make the title uppercase; the second 
command makes the bibliography a regular numbered 
section.  Add babel to make the references 
acquire their accents.
