NOTE: Text or symbols not renderable in plain ASCII are indicated by [...]. Abstract is included in .pdf document.

The matrix element [...] is calculated. A similar calculation for [...] is compared with experiment. The relationship of the Goldberger-Treiman relation to the bootstrap principle is discussed. Approximate symmetry predictions for the axial vector current are compared with the S-matrix calculations. Implications of the bootstrap principle for equal time commutators of hadron currents are discussed.
