We present a study of event-by-event fluctuations of transverse momentum in π + p and K + p collisions at 250 GeV/c and the corresponding PYTHIA Monte Carlo results for π + p collisions. The dependence of Φp t on event and particle variables are investigated in detail. We find that Φp t are all negative for different average transverse momentum per event sample. The pt N ∼ N correlation may not be the only origin of Φp t .
