Abstract
We show that the hard X-ray emission from the X-ray source LSI +61 $\hbox{$^\circ$ }$303 can be due to inverse Compton scattering of optical photons from the Be star by the relativistic electrons responsible for the observed radio emission.


Key words: X-ray source -- Be star -- LSI +61 $\hbox{$^\circ$ }$303
