Abstract: An example is constructed of a two state stationary stochastic process (T, P) whose time zero partition P is weak Bernoulli under the shift, but which cannot be the image under a finitary coding of any independent process. A sufficient condition for a partition to be weak Bernoulli is developed, based on the rate of convergence of the conditional entropy $ h(P\vert P_{ - j}^{ - 1})$ to $ h(P,T)$.
