    Hadronic production of charmed particles in association with muons from their semileptonic decay has been observed in a high-resolution streamer-chamber experiment performed at Fermilab. A miss-distance analysis of the pictures gives a signal of 17.37 events. Depending on the production model this corresponds to a range of neutron-nucleon cross sections from 8 to 50 b, assuming an A23 dependence.
