The Spike or Victoria University College Review 1943
As usual the swimming club's main support came this year from Weir House, though the unmelodious yelps of Vic. House B from the bank could not be ignored except by the stone deaf. The energetic Gib Bogle was the main spirit in organising several meetings at Thorndon Baths which were very enjoyable, despite the low temperatures and small attendances. Fleischl and Bogle among the men and Margaret Eichelbaum and Pat Gardiner among the women were the best of those who competed.
All summer sports clubs at V.U.C. curse the long vacation but none more vehemently than the swimming club for this period includes the best time of the year for swimming.
