Abstract. The iron abundance in the helium star
HD144941 has been measured from ultraviolet Fe iii lines.
It is 1:9 \Sigma 0:2 dex below solar and confirms the low metal­
licity (Z = 0:0003) previously determined from measure­
ments of CNO and other light elements. The result is
important because the low CNO metallicity must be re­
flected in the iron­group elements in order to explain why
