We present results from MiniMax (Fermilab T-864), a small test/experiment at the Tevatron designed to search for the production of disoriented chiral condensate (DCC) in p - p̅ collisions at √(s) = 1.8 TeV in the forward direction, ∼ 3.4 < η < ∼ 4.2. Data, consisting of 1.3 × 10^6 events, are analyzed using the robust observables developed in an earlier paper. The results are consistent with generic, binomial-distribution partition of pions into charged and neutral species. Limits on DCC production in various models are presented.
