Abstract: In a recent paper, Cohen and Montgomery proved a conjecture of Bergman concerning the relation between the Jacobson radical and the graded Jacobson radical of a ring graded by a finite group. In their proof they made use of the theory of Hopf algebras. In this note we give a short and elementary proof of the Bergman conjecture.
