Development Campaign 'Over Top'! The First Annual Archdiocesan Development Fund campaign is over its goal! With a number of the more distant parishes still to be reported it was announced this week by His Excellency, Most Reverend Thomas A. Connolly, Archbishop of Seattle, that the pledge and gift figure had reached approximately $1,750,000. The overall goal of the campaign was set at $1,500,000. The Archdiocesan Development Fund was established as the base for a long-range con- struction and expansion program including St. Ed- ward's Seminary, new high schools and homes for the aged. General Phase Only Begun Particularly significant in this achievement is the fact that the total to date has been realized during only the initial part of the general phase of the cam- paign. The results this week leading up to the grand total were returns from only the first general phase report meetings held in 15 centers of the Archdiocese. The campaign has completed only one-third of its general phase. A second general phase report meeting will be held in each of the centers Monday, Tuesday, Wed- nesday and Thursday evenings next week. All those meetings will be on the usual sub-regional basis. Plans are now being made for the final report and victory meetings which will be held the week after next. Volunteer Workers Energetic Surpassing the established minimum goal this early in the campaign was attributed to a mighty surge of activity by thousands of volunteer workers. Solemn opening ceremonies for the general phase were held in all parishes last Sunday followed by assignment meetings. Immediately thereafter the workers fanned out to make their solicitation visits to the homes. Since no solicitation in the general phase was undertaken until Sunday afternoon and in some cases Sunday evening, many of the parishes had only a brief time in which to make their calls and assemble their reports. This was particularly true of those parishes who were called upon to attend report meet- mgs on Monday and Tuesday. The specific gifts asked for in the general phase of the campaign are the "Builder's Gift" call for a pledge of $100, and the "Catholic Action Gift" a pledge of $40. Gifts Are Sacrificial Of great significance however, is the fact that the average of pledges made in the early stages of the general phase of the campaign is $75. This indi- cates that a large proportion of the faithful of the Archdiocese are sacrificially pledging the larger gift.. The general phase of the campaign was pre- ceded by two other phases. Solicitation in the ad- vance gift phase was handled by the priests and: members of the parish executive committees. Then came the special gift phase during which approxi- mately 25 per cent of the families and wage earners  were solicited for gifts. ..: Schedule Victory Meetings  The victory report meetings will be held on a-: regional basis. Delegations from parishes in Region:! "A" will meet April 1, at St. Bernadette's, Seattle.: The meeting for Region "B" will be held April 3, at- St. Luke's, Seattle, and parishes from Region "C" willi:'i be represented at its meeting, April 2, at St. Michael's : School, Olympia. ** At each of these meetings, Archbishop Connolly will personally receive the verbal reports from all pastors. Blanchet Win Real Exciting " School! :!:: Congratulations, C a t h o I i e Washingtonians! That State High School Class AA Basketball Tourna- ment championship the Braves heroically won Saturday is also yours. There has never been a more thrilling episode in archdioces- an sports history than Blan- chet's unprecedented title vic- tory -- collegiate, high school and otherwise. That was your school out on the University of Washington Edmundson Pavilion floor. And, all of our delight, the Braves the Garfield Bulldogs at their own defensive game, 36- 29. There were no "ands, its or buts" about this one. Blanehet defeated the defend- ing champions fair, square and soundly, much to the dis- belief of those who swear on the invincibility of the so- called all-powerful S e a t t le Metro League. And the reason for the re- joicing by even those who prob- ably couldn't find the Blanchet campus on a clear day in Seat- tle's northend, is that A Cath- olic school has finally won the tournament. THERE WERE 10 other pre- vious attempts: three by Gon- zaga Prep of Spokane, two by llarmine and Seattle Prep and one by O'Dea, Marquette of Yakima and the 1961-62 Braves. O'Dea almost did it in 1955 before falling, 46-38, to an- other Garfield outfit. This time we, Believers, could not be disappointed and neither could t h e s e valiant Braves be denied: Tom Workman, Mike Acres, Jim Miller, S t e v e Bingham, John Major, Eu- gene Duncan, Dick Johnson, Dave D i I I o n, Ken Zeigen, Dean Droppelman and head coach Don Zech. Named the tournament's out- standing player was Workman, 6-5 center, who is also presi- of his CYO teen club at St. John's Parish. The state's highly-sought player by colleges today was one of two unanimous choices on the All- State tournament team. And pint-sized 5-9 guard Mike Headlines and Deadlines: O001o Plans To Oust Cuba Reds By George N. Kramer, Ph.D. From what we can read between the lines, our government is mak- ing no plans to oust the Soviets or any other Communists from Cuba. It merely wants to fence off the Pearl of the Antilles and scowl at anyone who under- akes to disturb the equanimity of the Castro regime, as it did this week when a band of Cu- ban refugees staged a hit-and- run raid on Castro's Red pre- serve. Some sailors were injured and perhaps killed aboard a Soviet ship which was attacked. The State Department and the Justice Department said they are investigating whether there has been any violation of U.S. neutrality law. It is the policy of our govern- ment to forbid any unauthor- ized attacks or invasion at- tempts. The reluctance even to dis. cuss the prospect of taking positive steps to eliminate the Soviets from the Western Hemisphere was shown dur- ing the two-day conference of presidents of six Central American countries at San Jose, Costa Rica, Monday and Tuesday. President Kennedy was greet- ed by a throng of some 200,000 when he arrived to open the con- ference. Many, including sev- eral of the presidents, believed that one of the reasons for his mission was to discuss ways (Continued on Page 5) WITH THE perpetual State High School Class AA Basketball Tournament champion- ship trophy in one arm, head coach Don Zech thanks all those who made it possi ,le for his Blanchet Braves to gain the coveted title after the crowning victory Satur. ay at the University of Washington Edmundson Pavilion. The Braves had just won a de- fensive battle over defending champion Garfield High of Seattle, 36-29. With Zech are team captain Mike Acres, who holds the first place trophy going to the winning arch- diocesan school, and Henry DeYoung, retiring executive secretary of the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association. The championship win was the first for a Catholic school in the 39-year-old tourney.--(Progress Photo by W. C. Heib Jr.) Acres headed the all-tourna- ment second team -- an honor that overshadowed his tremen- dous quarterbacking of the Braves and his cool and timely shooting. In fact, all of the Braves' starting five came through when their supreme e f f o r t s were needed the most. John Major, ailing with a sprained ankle after the second Northwest District game, got off the bench in the second half to score 10 points for Blan- cher's 62-48 opening tourney win over Ellensburg. (Continued on Page 10) Pope Attributes Peace of Mind To Example By St. Joseph ROME, March 21 (Ra- dio, NC) His Holines Pope John XXIII has ascribed his peace of mind to the example set by St. Joseph. In an address March 18 to a group of cardinals in Rome for his name day March 19, the Pope also declared there has been a growth in devo- tion to St. Joseph in the past few decades. "It has had a beneficial repercussion on individuals vested with authority and on religious and secular institu- tions," the Pope stated. Speaking of the attributes of St. Joseph, he said: "He who has faith does not fear, does not precipitate events, does not give way to degres- sion and does not alarm his neighbor." "This characteristic of the spiritual visage of St. Joseph," Pope John continued, "is familiar to Us and gives Us courage. From it Our peace of mind as lowly Pope draws constant inspiration. This is not derived from the knowl- edge of men and of history, and it does not shut its eyes to reality. "It is a serenity that comes from God, the most wise Ruler of human events, both with reference to the extraordinary event of the ecumenical council  and concerning the ordinary but serious task of governing the Universal Church." The Pone said that God's voice "is constantly making itself more clearly heard in consciences." He also said there is a "constant in- CPA Convention To Hear Former Peru Official NEW YORK, March 21 (NC) Pedro Beltran, noted publisher and former Prime Minister of Peru, will be the main speaker at the 53rd annual Catholic Press Association convention, to be held in Miami Beach from April 30 to May 3. Beltran, who is publisher and editor of La Prensa, published in Lima, will speak at the con- vention banquet May 2. The CPA special awards, a sta- tuette, will be presented at the banquet to the person judged to have made the outstanding contribution to Catholic journal- ism in 1962. Latin America is the general theme of the convention, to be held in the Americana Hotel. Beltran, who has also served as Peru's Ambassador to the U.S., has long been a champion of closer inter-American ties. More than 15 years ago he warned against the danger of a Communist base in the Western hemisphere. crease" of those who "con- firm again the pre-eminence of supernatural values over every other activity however necessary and compulsory." The Pope referred to St. Jo- .seph as a man who "spoke lit- tle but lived intensely." Indicted On 28 Counts Of Obscenity PHILDELPHIA, March 20 (NC)- Ralph Ginzburg, New York publisher whose mail order operations have drawn a record number of complaints to the Post Office, has been indicted on 28 charges of using the mails to advertise and dis- tribute allegedly obscene ma- terial. The indictment, r e t u r n e d March 15 by a Federal grand jury here, supersedes a 19- count indictment against Ginz- burg in December. The new 28-count indictment includes the 19 charges in the earlier indictment. The first indictment related only to his mailings of adver- tising matter for the copies of a book called "The Housewife's Handbook on Selective Promis- cuity." The new indictment also covers his operations in con- nection with a newsletter and a quarterly magazine called Eros.

Theme Chosen For Serra Convention SAN FRANCISCO, (NO -- "The Priest, the Serran and the World Revolution" will be the theme of the Serra Inter- national convention to be held here July 7 - 10. Fred J. Wagner, nresident of Serra, which fosters vocations to the priesthood, said: "In t h i s convention, we hope to explore the relevance of the priest and the Serran and, consequently, the Church in this world about us. In a certain sense, Serra will anticipate some of the results of the ecumenical council. "In a broad sense what we are trying to explore in this convention is the relationship between the Church and the world. We are trying to evalu- ate the roles of clergy and laity in the complexity of mod- ern life." In Today's Progress...

Cardinal Boa also will speak in several other eastern cities. Leading American Catholic and Protestant scholars will join Cardinal Bea at the Har- vard Assembly. More than 150 theologians and students have been invited to attend the four days of seminars, lectures and concerts. G. Ernest Wright, Harvard professor of divinity and chair- man of the assembly, describes it as "the first time, as far as we are aware, that such a large confrontation of Catholic and Protestant scholars have met together to discuss theological issues." Cardinal Ben's topics will be "The Academic Pursuits and Christian Unity," "The Second Vatican Council and non-Cath- olic Christians: Preparation and the Work in the First Period," and "The Second Vat- ican Council and non-Catholic Christians: Evaluation a n d Prognosis."

The closed seminar discus- sions will begin March 28.1 The invited scholars and spe- cial students will divide into four groups. Each seminar:: will continue for three morn- ings, led by one Catholic and one Protestant. State Senate Backs Birth had strong opposition from Catholics, led by Sens. Sam Taylor of Walsanburg and Ed Byrne of Denver. They argued that the meas- ure "strikes at the beliefs of the Catholic Church" and that it is aimed at the state's Span- ish-American community. "It tells them, 'you are poor, so we are going to regulate your sex- ual life and how you reproduce your children,' " Byrne charged. Taylor argued that the state "cannot legislate against the laws of nature and the laws of God." In another action, the State A f f a i r s Committee of the House indefinitely tabled by a 7 to 0 vote a proposed Sun- day-closing law. It would have banned sale on Sunday of such major items as gro- ceries, hardware goods, eloth- ing, luggage, office supplies and cameras. The proposal had been draft- ed by the "Save Our Sundays" organization, a group repre- senting business, labor and re- ligious bodies. The bill was vigorously op- DENVER, M a r c h 20 (NC)--The Colorado House has begun action on a Senate-passed bill which would permit the State Welfare Department to give public welfare recipients birth control information and aids. The measure was assigned to the House Health and Welfare Committee after passage by a 19 to 15 vote in the Senate. The bill, described by its sponsor as intended to cut the state's cost of supporting chil- dren on relief, authorizes the welfare department to distrib- ute devices and drugs to wel- fare recipients who r e q u e s t them. The Senate added three amendments to the original bill. These would: forbid state em- ployees from advocating use of the birth control aids; exempt employes from taking part in the program if they object to it on religious grounds; and re- quire that the program not be forced on any relief recipient.

The editorial concerned re- cent atrocities by United' Nations troops in The Congo.: In his letter, Mr. Stinson wrote Roy. James H.
