Abstract: In this note we deal with a question raised by R. S. Pierce in 1963: Determine the elements of the Jacobson radical of the endomorphism ring of a primary abelian group by their action on the group. We concentrate on separable abelian $ p$-groups and give a counterexample to a conjecture of A. D. Sands. We also show that the radical can be pinned down if the endomorphism ring is a split-extension of its ideal of all small maps.
