Abstract: Let *G* be a nondiscrete LCA group, the measure algebra of *G*, and the closed ideal of those measures in whose Fourier transforms vanish at infinity. Let and be the spectrum of , the set of all symmetric elements of , and the spectrum of , respectively. In this paper this is shown: Let be a separable subset of . Then there exist a probability measure in and a compact subset *X* of such that for each and each

*G*is -compact and is empty otherwise, and (d) for each the set contains the topological boundary of in the complex plane.
