Abstract: For every $ \Delta > 0$ a function u subharmonic in the plane is constructed such that u has the order $ \rho = 1 + \Delta $ and satisfies the condition

$\displaystyle \mathop {\min }\limits_\varphi u(r{e^{i\varphi }})/\mathop {\max }\limits_\varphi u(r{e^{i\varphi }}) \leq - (C + 1)$   for every$\displaystyle \,r > 0,$

where $ C = C(\rho ) > 0$. This example answers a question of W. K. Hayman.
