It is shown that the difference in behavior of the high-energy (>450 Mev c.m.) total photoproduction cross sections for π+ and π0 can be explained by the presence of the retardation term in the case of the π+ production. The analogy with the behavior at the (3/2, 3/2) resonance is noted. The discussion naturally provides an explanation for the difference in center-of-mass energies of the lower high-energy peak found in π--p scattering and the corresponding peak in the π+ photoproduction. It is felt that the discussion contributes some evidence for the resonance nature of the peaks.

Walker for suggesting an investigation of the total photoproduction cross sectionsand for his constant help and encouragement. Discussions with Professor M. Gell-Mann have been much appreciated. I should also like to thank Professor R. F. Bacher for his interest and hospitality. I am grateful to the Commonwealth Fund of New York for a grant.
