Abstract: The notion of a normal theory such a theory $ T,\;I({\aleph _0},T) = 1{\text{ or }} \geqslant {\aleph _0}$. theorem that for superstable $ T,\;I({\aleph _0},T) = 1{\text{ or }} \geqslant {\aleph _0}$ stronger than stability but incomparable is introduced, and it is proved that for We also include a short proof of Lachlan's (The property of normality is to superstability.)
