|From Fancyclopedia 1, ca. 1944|
|A proposal brot up by Ashley at the Midgicon. He suggested it to be located in Battle Creek, but later plans substituted Los Angeles. The idea is to form a corporation and buy a city block on the edge of town after the war, on which will be built prefabricated functional houses for fans to live in while working around the city, and a community house where meeting, mimeoing, &c, can be done; and make purchases cooperatively.|
The idea of Slan Center, which Ashley conceived in early '43, was a whole block of slanshacks with central clubroom and publishing plant. Nothing came of it, though various fen have bruited the notion ever since.
