Abstract : Progress is reported on (1) the necessary low temperature apparatus and (2) the vibrating sample magnetometer to be used for pressure studies. Eddy current problems still have to be solved, as do methods for pressurizing the alkali metal. It is shown that distillation techniques are quite useful in reducing the ferromagnetic component in the total susceptibility of the alkali metals. This should permit more reliable values of the magnetic susceptibility to be determined and also provide the pure samples required for measurements of the change of susceptibility on meltings and on transformation at low temperatures.
