Hadron production by e+e− annihilation has been studied for c.m. energies W between 13 and 31.6 GeV. As a function of 1n W the charged particle multiplicity grows faster at high energy than at lower energies. This is correlated with a rise in the plateau of the rapidity distribution. The cross section sdσ/dx is found to scale within ±30% for x > 0.2 and 5 W 31.6 GeV
