In this paper we investigate the Doppler shifts of the metallic lines for a 3B white-light flare on September 19, 1979. The results show that there is no systematic shift at the line center, while there may appear some asymmetry at the line wing. A possible heating process of this flare is proposed to interpret the observed spectral features.
