To the Editor.—  Knowing Dr. G. G. Liddle's abiding interest about "in" things, he may be eager to learn that among all wildlife imported to the United States in 1972, fish (primarily tropical) led the list. According to the Bureau of Sport Fisheries and Wildlife, US Department of the Interior, the number of imported fish reached an all-time high-112,291,686. Not close, but running second, were (guess what) fish eggs! The number was 3,580,000.I wonder who counts all that fishy stuff. Perhaps we can discuss the matter at the inn when next I am in Bloomington.
