The profiles of the Mg II h and k lines near 2900 A are studied on the basis of IUE long wavelength camera high resolution spectra for a number of phases of each of five Cepheids. An emission feature often appears at the centers of the two lines, and there are central absorption features as well, due to interstellar or circumstellar gas, which are often multiple and may or may not originate in a region which is at least several tenths of a stellar radius in extent. While the mean flux of the emission is lower than for nonvariable stars of similar temperature and luminosity, the maximum strength of the emission is in keeping with the instantaneous temperature. In the second part of this paper, it is noted that little significant chromospheric emission could be found in the short wavelength region for the shortest period star in the sample, Delta Cep. In order to detect the emissions or place lower limits on the fluxes, longer exposures have been obtained at several critical phases for three of the five stars. While the strength, when detected, is similar to that of nonvariables, the upper limits at other places indicate smaller fluxes than those observed in nonvariable stars.
