Semi-leptonic decays are investigated in the gauge theory of Bars, Halpern and Yo Yoshimura, using elementary baryons rather than quarks. It is proved that in order to get a correct d/f ratio in these decays it is necessary to use an (8,8) spin-zero hadron field, together with another multiplet of spin-zero hadrons. The tree approximation is shown not to be sufficient to calculate the decay amplitudes correctly.
