Abstract The idea that corpuscular streams of highly ionized neutral matter, effected by the sun, may lead to variations of cosmic rays of extrasolar origin is due to Alfven. The idea was further developed by Brunberg and by Trumpy and applied successfully to a particular case of crossed telescope observations by Elliott and Dolebear. This idea in its original form has lost popularity. There is evidence that the passage of cosmic rays through an average strearn actually gives variations on earth with exactly the kind of spectrum necessary to explain diurnal variations. (A.C.)
