|BIG POND, the Atlantic Ocean, hence BIG POND FUND, the movement to bring Ted Carnell to an American convention — originally the '47 PhilCon I, tho he actually didn't make it till the CinVention. Milt Rothman, PhilCon chairman, was the fund chairman too, tho Ackerman (who had kicked off the notion in the October '46 Shaggy) collected the geld. The idea was revived in effect in Shelby Vick's WAW with the Crew campaign.
