Annotation by Joshua Lederberg:
KW: terminology - morph; cline; gene; loci, atom;


As regards genetic  terminology, I agree with you about

locus on the other hand is a nioe elastio
term - after all, it merely moans a place! It Beems to me that we
 are in the same sort of trouble    as the
physicists  were in over atoms when they found they were not
indivisible.Maybe temporarily one oould use locus in the
customary sense
 I am glad you like my term morph;
aotually, I am prouder of my other terminological invention
cline, which became universally adopted within 4 or 5 years.
