We have investigated the transitions (3S)+-(1S) and (3S)+-(2S) and the cascade process (3S)(2S)+X, (2S)+-(1S), both in the exclusive decay mode where the daughter state decays into two leptons, and in the inclusive decay mode where the daughter state decays hadronically. Results are presented on branching fractions and the properties of the +- system. Possible evidence for the transition (3S)+-(11P1) is presented.
