The Σ0-Λ0 relative parity may be measured by observing correlation of polarizations in the process Σ0→Λ0+γ. Internal conversion of the photon into an electron pair (Dalitz pair) serves as an analyzer which selects polarized photons. Theoretical results are presented which show that the Dalitz-pair decay mode of polarized Σ0's may be used to measure the Σ0-Λ0 relative parity.
