### Abstract

H. A. David and C. C. Yang, Iowa State University, have noted the following points. The author does not stay with his own definition of D_{T}(n, q) but in fact usesDT(n,q)=E{T(z1,,ċċċ,zn-q, ∞,...,∞)}.Even with this change the proof of the theorem on p. 176 is in error since the combinatorial term associated with δ_{n-r} should be(n-qn-r),not(n-qr).However, since δ_{n-r} = δ_{n-q}, the theorem follows directly from Case 2 of David & Groeneveld (1982), and has essentially been proved by Sen (1985, pp. 309-11).
