W. Li, S. Jha, R. Chornock, and A. V. Filippenko (UC Berkeley), report
that unfiltered images of a 12 arcmin x 12 arcmin region centered at the 
position of GRB 030323 (HETE Trigger #2640) were taken with
the Katzman Automatic Imaging Telescope (KAIT) at 05:28 Mar 24 UT 
(about 7.5 hours after the burst). We found no obvious new source compared
with the DSS II (red) to a limiting magnitude of 19.0 mag. Specifically,
the candidate OT reported by Gilmore, Kilmartin, & Henden (GCN 1949) 
was outside our imaged field.
