More difficult was the decision of the alternative S-, T- versus V-, A- interaction in beta decay. For a long time there was a hold-up here on account of wrongly evaluated recoil measurements in He6. The first correct indication in favour of the alternative (V, A) was given by the angular correlation between electron and neutrino in A35,50 determined by recoiled experiments. In agreement with this there was also the result of an elegant experiment by M. Goldhaber, L. Grodzins and A.
