Abstract : For bright field stars of spectral class earlier than B4 a correlation between rotational velocity and space velocity relative to the Galaxy is found. It is suggested that these stars have attained their spin momentum and space velocity during a close encounter with another star in a small group of stars, leading to ejection. (Author)
