*L. Š. Grinblat*

The main results of this work can be formulated in such
an elementary way that it is likely to attract mathematicians from
a broad spectrum of specialties, though its main audience will likely
be combintorialists, set-theorists, and topologists. The central
question is this: Suppose one is given an at most countable family of
algebras of subsets of some fixed set such that, for each algebra, there
exists at least one set that is not a member of that algebra. Can one
then assert that there is a set that is not a member of
