In our photoelectric searches for the β Cephei variables (JS77, JS79, and J82) several early B stars with nebulous lines were included. A summary of their photometric behaviour is presented in Table 1, columns four to six. Two of the stars, HR 2963 and HR 3476, are
apparently constant in light, HR 3213 is a short-period β Cephei star, HR 3462 shews ellipsoidal variations with a period of Od.563, which implies an orbital period twice that long (cf. also Shobbrook 1981), and HR 8854 is an eclipsing binary with P = 2d.3913.
