    In a search for heavy Q=23e and Q=13e particles produced in e+ e- collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 29 GeV, no candidate events were found in 77 pb-1 of data collected by the time projection chamber at PEP. Upper limits are established on the inclusive cross section for the production of Q=23e and Q=13 particles in the mass range 1-13 GeV/c2, improving upon previously established limits.
