Abstract: An indecomposable, torsion-free, reduced abelian group $ A$ has the properties that (i) each subgroup $ B$ of an $ A$-projective group with $ {S_A}(B) = B$ is $ A$-projective and (ii) each subgroup $ B$ of a group $ G$ with $ {S_A}(G) + B = G$ and $ G/B$ $ A$-projective is a direct summand if and only if $ A$ is self-small and flat as a left $ E(A)$-module, and $ E(A)$ is right hereditary. Furthermore, a group-theoretic characterization is given for torsion-free, reduced abelian groups with a right and left Noetherian, hereditary endomorphism ring. This is applied to Fuchs' Problem 84a. Finally, various applications of the results of this paper are given.
