From six cloud-chamber photographs of unusual V0 decay events, the following conclusions are drawn: (1) there is a neutral V particle that decays into two particles lighter than κ mesons with a Q value too small to be consistent with a θ0(π, π, 214 Mev) particle; (2) some of these events cannot be explained in terms of the decay of a τ0(π0, π-, π+, Q∼80 Mev) particle; (3) these events can be explained by any one of a number of three-body decay schemes, but two different types of V particles must be postulated if two-body decays are assumed.
