Abstract : Attention is drawn to a possible band structure displayed by the known N* resonances. The observed spectrum is similar to that predicted by a paraquark harmonic oscillator shell model. Exact threebody Schrodinger wave functions are used to compute the Npi and Deltapi partial decay widths, assuming the pion emission takes place via a onequark deexcitation. The agreement with experiment is very good. (Author)
