Abstract: The equality $ \upsilon (X \times Y) = \upsilon X \times \upsilon Y$ is studied for the case when one of the factors is a linearly ordered topological space (LOTS). Among the results obtained are the following:

1. If $ X$ is any separable realcompact space and $ Y$ is any LOTS of nonmeasurable cardinal, then $ \upsilon (X \times Y) = \upsilon X \times \upsilon Y$.

2. If $ X$ is a nonparacompact LOTS, then there is a paracompact LOTS $ Y$ such that $ \upsilon (X \times Y) \ne \upsilon X \times \upsilon Y$.

3. For any pair $ X,Y$ of well-ordered spaces, $ \upsilon (X \times Y) = \upsilon X \times \upsilon Y$.
