We have searched for direct photons of low PT (1.0 GeV/c) at c.m.=90° in pp collisions at s =63 GeV. We used two independent methods: direct detection in NaI crystals and conversion to e+e- pairs. No signal is observed; the photon spectrum is well described by the decay of hadrons. The result is consistent with a direct low-PT photon signal reported at s =12 GeV, but excludes a rapid growth of soft-photon production with s.
