Abstract: Let $ M$ be a positive regular shift-invariant method of summability and let $ T$ be a one-to-one transformation which maps $ X$ onto $ X$ and which is $ \mathcal{B}$-bimeasurable, i.e., $ A \in \mathcal{B}$ if and only if $ TA \in \mathcal{B}$, where $ (X,\mathcal{B})$ is a measurable space. Then it is proved that if for a finite measure $ \mu $ on $ \mathcal{B}$ the sequence $ \left\{ {\mu ({T^m}A)} \right\}$ is $ M$-summable for each $ A \in \mathcal{B}$, then for any real $ r \geqslant 1$ the sequence $ \left\{ {f \circ {T^m}} \right\}$ is $ (C,r)$-summable $ \mu $-almost everywhere for every bounded $ \mathcal{B}$-measurable function $ f$ defined on $ X$. The result includes the Blum-Hanson theorem.
