Abstract: For an infinite cardinal $ \alpha $, $ m(\alpha )$ denotes the least measurable cardinal, if one exists, not less than $ \alpha $. We give easy proofs of generalizations of some results on realcompact spaces. Among these we prove the following generalization of a theorem of A. Kato.

Let $ \{ {X_i}:i \in I\} $ be a collection of spaces each having at least two elements. Then the $ k$-box product $ {(\prod {X_i})_k}$ is $ \alpha $-compact if and only if either $ {X_i}$ is $ \alpha $-compact for each $ i \in I$ and $ k \leqslant m(\alpha )$ or $ \left\vert I \right\vert < m(\alpha )$.
