We report results of the first measurements of and polarization produced in deep inelastic polarized muon scattering on the nucleon. The results are consistent with an expected trend towards positive polarization with increasing . The polarizations of and appear to have opposite signs. A large negative polarization for at low positive is observed and is not explained by existing models. A possible interpretation is presented.
