Abstract: An oscillation criterion is given for the second order sublinear differential equation $ x'' + a(t){\left\vert x \right\vert^\gamma }\operatorname{sgn} x = 0,0 < \gamma < 1$, where the coefficient $ a(t)$ is not assumed to be nonnegative for all large values of $ t$. The result extends a condition recently discovered by Butler, Erbe, and Mingarelli for the linear equation.
