Abstract : A simplification is given of the relationship between a pion-hyperon resonance and the discrepancy in the K(-)-H and K(-)-D absorption data. The K(-)-helium data are shown to give supporting evidence to the resonance proposal. The recently discovered Y(0)* may be the resonance in question. It is shown that in the zero model, the real part of the isotopic spin zero scattering length must be less than -- 1.3 fermi in order to explain the hydrogen-deuterium discrepancy. (Author)
