False connection (not really)

	Being closely involved with NABA since its beginning, it surprised
me to find out that there were anti-collecting editorials (which are all
written by Glassberg) in American Butterflies. Assuming that Jim was correct
and my memory was faulty, at his suggestion, I dug out the first five
volumes (from Feb 1993 to Winter 1997) and scanned the editorials for all
this anti-collecting propaganda. I could find none. 
	In fact, I found in the very first editorial the following: "Because
a number of people have asked about the position of NABA in regard to
collecting butterflies, the board voted to adopt the following policy
statement: Collecting butterflies is not included among the purposes of NABA
but NABA is not in opposition to other groups for which this may be a
legitimate purpose."
