Experimental work was continued in three areas, namely, crystal growth, electrical conductivities of La-doped EuS, and magnetic structure of CrTe sub x Sb sub 1-x. A new approach was initiated to the growth of EuS crystals from the vapor phase. Similar attempts were also made for Si-doped CrBr3. The strain-anneal method has given encouraging results for growing large crystals of rare earth metals and alloys. The electrical properties of La-doped compounds of EuS were further studied and d.c. measurements were begun on thin film samples of these compounds. Magnetic structures in the CrTe-CrSb system have been discussed and compared with those in the MnSb-CrSb system.
