Abstract / Description of output

Results of submillimeter observations of the very high-redshift IRAS galaxy 10214 + 4724 are presented. Significant detections at 800 and 450 are achieved. The data are compared to the existing models of this galaxy, and it is found that both the extreme primeval galaxy model an the dust-embedded Seyfert model are excluded. The galaxy is likely to be undergoing and extreme starburst, but whether this represents the formation of a significant fraction of the stars is unclear.
