Abstract: Boas and Pollard proved that given any basis $ \{ {f_n}\} _{n = 1}^\infty $ for $ {L^2}(E)$ one can delete the first k basis elements and then find a bounded measurable function M such that $ \{ M{f_n}\} _{n = k + 1}^\infty $ is total in $ {L^2}(E)$, that is, the closure of the linear span of the set $ \{ M{f_n}:n \geq k + 1\} $ is $ {L^2}(E)$. We improve this result by weakening the hypothesis to accept bases of $ {L^p}(E),1 < p < \infty $, and strengthening the conclusion to read serially total, that is, given any $ f \in {L^2}(E)$ one can find a sequence of reals $ \{ {a_n}\} _{n = k + 1}^\infty $ such that $ \Sigma _{n = k + 1}^\infty {a_n}M{f_n}$ converges to f in the norm. We also show that certain infinite deletions are possible.
