The magnetic properties of aligned powders of (U1- xLux)2Fe15Ge2 have been studied in order to determine the U contribution to the magnetism of U 2Fe15Ge2. Dilution of U by Lu leads to a decrease of TC and of the magnetic anisotropy whereas the spontaneous magnetic moment increases. The results are discussed under the assumption of a magnetic state of U with a small moment as a result of mutual cancellation of the spin and orbital contributions.
