New spectrophotometry of SS433 shows that the variable-wavelength emission features discovered by Margon et al.are due to the simultaneous presence of material having a substantial redshift and a substantial blueshift. A magnetic interpretation for the features is also ruled out by polarimetric measurements. Implications for dynamical models are discussed.
