Abstract: We give an alternate characterization of a combinatorial property of measures on $ {p_\kappa }\lambda $ introduced by Menas. We use this characterization to prove that if $ \kappa $ is supercompact, then all measures on $ {p_\kappa }\lambda $ in a certain class have the partition property. This result is applied to obtain a self-contained proof that if $ \kappa $ is supercompact and $ \lambda $ is the least measurable cardinal greater than $ \kappa $, then Solovay's "glue-together" measures on $ {p_\kappa }\lambda $ are not $ {2^\lambda }$-extendible.
