Evidence of massive neutrinos was sought in the π<sup>+</sup>→e<sup>+</sup>ν decay spectrum with the background from the π→μ→e decay chain highly suppressed. Upper limits (90% C.L.) were set on the neutrino mixing parameter |U<sub>ei</sub>|<sup>2</sup><10<sup>-7</sup> in the mass region 50<m<sub>ν</sub><130 MeV/c<sup>2</sup>.
