Starting from the recent U(3) ⊠U(3) gauge model of strong interactions, we discuss the very natural synthesis with Weinberg's model of leptons. As a result of the interplay of the two models (a) neutral ΔS=1 currents are eliminated without enlarging the number of quarks, and (b) a natural (3,3̄)âŠ(3,3̄) symmetry breaking emerges for the hadrons. Incorporation of alternative lepton theories is mentioned.
