College Record 1962

WITH three issues of ST. KIERAN’s COLLEGE RECORD a pal/em lras evolved which appears to have found favour with our readers, if we can judge from reports received – and we do judge for they remain our principal guide. This pattern is not so rigid that it will not allow for improvement, for we know certain deficiencies exist which we would like to remedy. Some sections of the RECORD are less comprehensive than they should be. “In the News” depart­ment probably is lacking in many names that ought to be there. We are very much dependent on our correspondents to keep us informed by letter or by news cuttings of the achievements of St. Kieran’ s men at home and abroad, achievements which are always a source of justifiable pride to us. The period under review saw the fiftieth anniversary of the death of Cardinal Moran, and we are fortunate in having an assessment of that, perhaps, neglected figure who so influenced the history of the Church in Australia. Father Francis Hickey, S.P.S. has made a long study of Cardinal Moran, as is evidenced by his article. This issue may appear orientated towards the west – to be paradoxical – and other mission fields no less dear to St. Kieran’ s seem neglected. Making the RECORD, as with many events of greater enterprise, often depends on fortuitous circumstances, and may be governed in part by what the Editor’s post-bag contains. It will be noted that the price of the RECORD remains unchanged since the first number, and in these days of spiralling costs one need not be a book buyer to realise that the price is dispro­portionately modest. However, many of our subscribers prove generous, and we are never dis­inclined to accept their noble gestures, realising that the physical quality of the magazine depends on such. We are most grateful to all our contributors and pay tribute to the amount of time and effort they freely gave, which, in some cases, may appear not to have been properly appreciated. Our diligent correspondents we also salute. An appeal was made in the last issue for contributors to continue sending us material, and it is most heartily reiterated. The existence of an official history of St. Kieran’s does not preclude the likelihood that many pages may still be unwritten, and we would welcome these for the RECORD. Also photographs from the past, since many years seem to have been undocumented – as a matter of fact we have no recollection of any photographs of class groups being taken during our own period in the College. We express our thanks to the President and staff of the College for their invaluable assistance, and to the previous Editor, Father Daniel Collier, without whose practical help and encouragement we frankly would have hesitated to undertake the task. To Mr. Britton, of the Leinster Leader, and to our advertisers, whosf! support we value, grateful thanks are finally expressed.
