We determine the fifth-interaction coupling from large-angle high-energy nucleon-nucleon scattering, and extract the DF value for baryon matrix elements of a current-current product from hyperon decays. Assuming symmetric-nonet conserved vector current, we predict the baryon octet DF value. The result fits observations to within 30%. The actual baryon masses fix sinφ19-112 for the eighth-component admixture in the fifth-interaction current.
