Thirty-eight coudé and 38 Cassegrain spectrograms of µ¹ Bootis obtained between 1963 and 1969 have been measured for radial velocity. The data do not support Abt's (1965) orbital elements. Indeed, statistical tests have revealed no evidence for variability in the radial velocity of the star whether the period is long or short. The velocities were found to scatter in a random manner about a mean value of — 13 ± 2 km/sec. The large standard error arises chiefly from uncertainties in the adopted stellar wavelengths.
