Properties of low-spin states in [Formula Presented] have been studied with the [Formula Presented] reaction. [Formula Presented]-ray angular distributions and excitation functions have been used to characterize the decays of the excited levels, and level lifetimes have been obtained with the Doppler-shift attenuation method. The one-phonon, mixed-symmetry strength is found to be concentrated in the [Formula Presented] state, which exhibits a strong [Formula Presented] transition to the first-excited [Formula Presented] state and a weak [Formula Presented] transition to the ground state. The data agree well with expectations of the neutron-proton interacting boson model.
