Abstract : The comparison with experiment and the discussion establish that straightforward application of SU(6)W and similar symmetries to S-matrix elements is an enterprise unlikely to meet with success, apart from some special situations such as the Johnson-Treiman relations. The most important feature omitted in such attempts is the modifications introduced by the existence of competing channels and the resultant inelasticities of the low partial waves. Perhaps all that can be hoped is that the higher symmetry schemes describe vertices and that dynamical calculations based on such couplings will have some meaning. Some tentative indications of at least partial success in this are found in calculations with the peripheral model including absorption, although no really consistent comparison has yet been made.
