The slogan which became a bid which ultimately led to Solacon.

From Fancyclopedia 2 ca 1959
(Rex Ward:Sneary) Yes, it's true that Rick Sneary didn't make up the slogan which will probably be associated with him forever. The phrase was the motto of the longest-range convention campaign ever mounted, Rick having begun it in 1948 in the columns of SPACEWARP, where his regular "1958" appeared for several years. Tho he gafiated briefly in 1951 a comeback in 1955, and the persistence of his slogan, put his movement over the top at the SoLACon.
