Measurements of cosmic rays in the L3 multisampling chambers are presented. The study of tracks with polar angles from 30° < θ < 130° w.r.t. the wires show increasing pulse height like 1/sin θ. Using inclined tracks, we find a ±1.5 cm region of reduced accuracy near the glass supports of the 5.4 m long wires.
