A search has been made for direct photon production in pBe interactions at 200 and 300 GeV/c over the kinematic region 1.5 < P⊥ < 4.0 GeV/c and -0.7 < XF < 0 (90° < θcms < 160°). An excess of single photons above that which is predicted from the measured π0 and η0 production is observed. Theratio of γ/π0 production is calculated assuming that the excess arises from direct photon production. We find that this ratio averages 0.070 +/- 0.025 (including systematic errors) in this region of XF and P⊥ for our 200 and 300 GeV/c data. We have used our measured value of the η/π0 ratio of 0.47 +/- 0.10 in the determination of the γ/π0 ratio. The variation of γ/π0 with XF, P⊥, XR and θcms presented.Present address: Brookhaven National Laboratory, Upton, NY 11973, USA.
