The reported results are mainly based on data obtained during the first part of the Helios-1 mission. The sun was very quiet during the considered period. The data are, therefore, representative for comparatively stationary conditions in the solar corona. Data obtained concerning the protons were evaluated by means of a special computer routine. The significance of the data is discussed, taking into account the status of the corona and the interplanetary plasma during the considered part of the Helios-1 mission, fast stream structures in the region between 0.3 and 1 AU, radial gradients of fast and slow solar wind, and the separation of proton double streams and alpha-particles. Attention is also given to the 'strahl' in the electron distribution, differences between fast streams and slow plasma on the basis of the observed electron distributions, and radial gradients in the case of solar wind electron parameters.
