The Spike or Victoria University College Review June 1925

Mr. Mceldowney's Paper

Mr. Mceldowney's Paper

The first year of a new journal is not unseldom like the first year of a young lawyer, undistinguished by any considerable success. The "New Nation" is by no means as yellow as its page 54 cover; it has grappled valiantly with its varying initial fortunes and follows the "trial and error" method with an assurance that argues faith in the enterprise. Mr. McEldowney, the editor and proprietor, is a former V.U.C. student of some prominence, and carried away from this place a full equipment of the ideals of his day. It must be true that these ideals were more conservative than those of present students, for the "New Nation" has made its way very carefully and used wise old heads where many people looked for wild young ones. Nevertheless, we wish Mr. McEldowney every success; we even forgive him for walking away with the valuable efforts of several of our best contributors.
