NOTE: Text or symbols not renderable in plain ASCII are indicated by [...]. Abstract is included in .pdf document. The experimental data relating to the 17.63 and 18,14 Mev states in Be8 is analyzed. It is shown that all available measurements are consistent with the assumption that both states have [...]. Since these states are obtained by bombarding [...] with protons, they must be .formed principally by p-wave protons. Ordinarily [...] terms would be expected in angular distributions for reactions involving these states, but they are not observed. From this it is concluded that a certain value of the channel spin ratio [...] is required. It is then shown that this value may be obtained on the assumption of an independent particle model with either jj or LS coupling. The particle and radiation widths are computed for these states using both LS and jj coupling schemes, and the results are found to be in order-of-magnitude agreement with experiment.
