Abstract : Accurate positions for 50 radio sources obtained with the two-element interferometer of the Owens Valley Radio Observatory have been used in a search for optical identifications for these sources. The search has been carried out on the National Geographic Society-Palomar Observatory Sky Survey plates. Positive identifications are suggested for 19 sources, some of which have already been presented by Sandage and Wyndham (1965). Possible identifications are suggested for a further 17 sources. 14 sources remain unidentified, 7 of which lie close to the galactic plane and are subject to obscuration. (Author)
