It has recently been suggested1 that a precise comparison of the β spectra of B^(12) and N^(12) transitions to the ground state of C^(12) would provide a test of the nature of the vector interaction in β decay. Let the spectrum of each transition, divided by the corresponding Fermi spectrum, be called S(E), where E is the total energy of the β ray.
