Abstract: A topological space X has property $ \sigma - {\text{CM}}$ if for every countable family F of continuous scalar valued functions on X there is a compact metrizable subspace M of X such that $ f(X) = f(M)$ for every f in F. Every compact metric space, every weakly compact subset of a Banach space and every closed ordinal space has property $ \sigma - {\text{CM}}$. Every continuous image of an arbitrary product of spaces having property $ \sigma - {\text{CM}}$ also has property $ \sigma - {\text{CM}}$. If X has property $ \sigma - {\text{CM}}$, then every copy of $ {c_0}$ in $ C(X)$ is complemented in $ C(X)$. If a locally convex space E belongs to the variety of locally convex spaces generated by the weakly compactly generated Banach spaces, then every copy of $ {c_0}$ in E is complemented in E.
