Abstract: Orrin Frink showed that the real-valued functions over a Tychonoff space X which may be continuously extended to $ \omega (\mathcal{Z})$, the Wallman-type compactification associated with a normal base $ \mathcal{Z}$ for X, are those which are $ \mathcal{Z}$-uniformly continuous

Let $ \mathcal{Z}$ be a delta normal base on a Tychonoff space X, and let $ \eta (\mathcal{Z})$ be the corresponding $ \mathcal{Z}$-realcompactification of X. In this note we show that countable $ \mathcal{Z}$-uniform continuity is a sufficient but not a necessary condition for continuously extending real-valued functions over X to $ \eta (\mathcal{Z})$.
