Abstract : Measurements on the size-spectrum of extensive air showers were made over a period of about one year to include approximately 100,000 events. It is found that errors of about 5% in determining the number of particles traversing the scintillator make it impossible to observe time variations of less than 8%. Briefly, the method employed consists in finding the integral spectrum of the pulse-size distribution occurring in a large liquid scintillator.
