Loyal and Benevolent Protective Order of Wollheim Stooges
from Fancyclopedia 1 ca. 1944
A burlesque organization headed by Prize Stooge Michel, set up for the purpose of laughing out of existence the belief that Wollheim's associates were stooges. It was supposed to be open to anyone who had ever disagreed with Will Sykora, but J Speer, duly qualified and applying for a membership card, received none. The belief was fairly widespread in the Second Fandom that the other three members of the Quadrumvirate, and certainly the lesser lites of the Wollheimist faction, took their orders from Wollheim. Actually, according to Lowndes, the unanimity of their utterances was the result of many conferences on policy, in which they frequently laid down the law to the "Dictator".
