The binding energy of helium is calculated by the Ritz variational method using phenomenological two body interaction -containing a central and tenor forces of different ranges. The calculation is performed for all the sets of interaction parameters found by Feshbach and Schwinger (1951) to give the experimental deuteron binding energy end quadrupole moment; some of the sets of parameters are also consistent with the other low-energy to-body data. The wave function adopted is linear combination of a 1So wave function and six 5Do wave functions. Charge exchange and spin-orbit coupling are considered, and the present position of the" consistency" problem is examined.
