We have tested experimentally the model that the three regions seen in p-p elastic scattering are the diffraction scattering due to π, K, and p̄ production. The inelastic p-p cross section was measured on circles of constant Pc.m.. One contained a pure sample of inelastic π events; the other, both π and K events. The cross section has a break on both circles showing that the break is not due to K mesons and that the model is wrong.
