The current-current hypothesis has been applied in recent years to the study of the weak interactions. The conserved vector current(1) hypothesis and the pionic character of the divergence of the axial vector current(2) have evolved in its wake. So has the idea of a boson field which mediates all weak interactions.(3) This note deals only with the vector part of the current, leaving for another time similar calculations with the axial vector part; and examines the possibility of producing the boson W, in pion-nucleon collisions, in case of W having relatively low mass.(4)
