We present results of a large-acceptance experiment in which muon pairs were observed in the mass range 0.6 to 6.0 GeV/c2. Emphasis is given to features of the production of Jψ and ψ′(3.7) particles. We find [Bσ]ψ′(3.7)[Bσ]Jψ to be 0.007±0.004 for p-C and 0.018±0.007 for π+-C interactions. Comparison with results from e+e- storage rings indicates that both the Jψ and the ψ′(3.7) are produced strongly rather than electromagnetically in our experiment.
