Hall effect measurements on single crystal specimens of Yl-xPrxBa2Cu307-8 (0 _6.73, Vxy is positive for T > Tc and displays a "negative Hall anomaly" a few degrees below Tc which shifts to higher fields at lower temperatures. A similar behavior was reported by Jia et al. [3] and Xiong and Xiao [4]. The negative Hall region occurs where Vxx increases rapidly with increasing field [1,2]. For x > 0.24 or y < 6.73, only a positive Hall signal is observed. Figure 1 contains a plot of the magnitude of the minimum Hall signal A, obtained from 0921-4534/94/$07.00

Vxy vs H curves, vs the reduced temperature T/T c, for both systems. The result for x = 0 is similar to the one reported by Luo et al. for epitaxial YBa2Cu307 films [5]. The interesting features of all these curves is that, for both systems, A is nonzero over the same reduced temperature range (0.88
