Differential Strömgren uvby photometric observations from the 0.75-m Four College Automated Photoelectric Telescope were obtained for three metallic-line and three Mercury-Manganese stars. None were found to be variable. These sharp-lined stars may not be the best tests for class variability as their polar axes are pointed towards the earth. Each presents essentially the same visible hemisphere as it rotates.
Key words: stars: chemically peculiar
