Yes, Mr. Commens, Mr. Hannah is partly correct. He said these mutants 
were found in nature, but he should had added found in maize 
populations by geneticists and plant breeders, a group that is fast 
disappearing since funding agencies refuse to fund this group if they 
do not participate in molecular operations. In the future there will 
not be field geneticists who will uncover such mutants. Mr. Hannah is 
well aware of this development..PAP
