Abstract : The quark model of hadrons, combined with the additivity postulate for the quark-quark scattering amplitudes, has had remarkable success in the analysis of high energy scattering data. However in sum-rules relating meson-baryon to baryon-baryon total cross sections there exists a large discrepancy with experiment. It is now shown how this discrepancy is removed with careful formulation and application of the additivity postulate.
