Abstract: Let $(X,\Sigma, \mu)$ be a $\sigma$-finite, nonatomic, Baire measure space. Let $G$ be a finite dimensional subspace of $L_1(X,\Sigma, \mu)$. There is a bounded, continuous function, $q$, defined on $X$, such that

(1) $\int _X g\operatorname{sgn} q d\mu =0$ for all $g \in G$, and (2) $|\operatorname{sgn} q | =1$ almost everywhere.
