"THE 'HUGO' AWARD: New York's Hydra Club, a business and social (mostly social) organization made up of science-fiction and fantasy writers, editors, illustrators and fans, are planning an east-coast science-fiction conference on July 4th in New York, at which time they will probably award the first 'Hugo' for excellence in the field."
