Abstract : Thirty-four stars were surveyed for 2.6-mm CO emission and forty-nine for 3.4-mm HCN emission. CO and HCN emission lines were detected in the directions of the carbon stars IRC+10216, IRC+30219, and possibly IRC000382. Preliminary measurements indicate CO source sizes approximately greater than 60sec. Extended CO emission sources were also found in the directions of the stars R Mon and T Tau. The infrared source IRC+40091 (LkH-alpha-101) near the H II region S 222 was also found to have CO emission. (Author)
