The differential cross section for the reaction p p yields d positive pion was measured with scintillation counters for incident proton kinetic energies of 1.3, 1.5, 1.7, 2.0, 2.5, and 2.8 Bev, using the external proton beam of the Cosmotron. Values of d sigmad omega with a total uncertainty of 11 are given for barycentric deuteron angles, Theta, for O or cos theta or - 0.97 in small intervals of cos theta. The primary interest, in this reaction is that it is one of the few two body reactions in high energy particle physics, and therefore might provide both a stimulus and a test for dynamical theories of particle interactions.
