I consider N = 1 supersymmetric SU(N) gauge theories with matter fields
consisting of one antisymmetric representation, five flavors, and enough anti-
fundamental representations to cancel the gauge anomaly. Previous analyses
are extended to the case of even N, with no superpotential. Using holomorphy I
show that the theory has an interacting infrared fixed point for sufficiently large
N.. These theories are interesting due to the fact that in going from five to four
flavors the theory goes from a non-trivial infrared fixed point to confinement,
in contradistinction to SUSY QCD, but in analogy to the behavior expected in
