Abstract: A classical theorem of Szëgo states that for functions $ f(z) = z + \Sigma _{k = 2}^\infty {a_k}{z^k}$ convex in $ \vert z\vert < 1$, the sequence of partial sums $ {f_n}(z) = z + \Sigma _{k = 2}^n{a_k}{z^k}$ must be convex in $ \vert z\vert < \frac{1}{4}$. For the more general family consisting of functions of the form $ z + \Sigma _{k = 2}^\infty {a_{{n_k}}}{z^{{n_k}}}$, where $ \left\{ {{n_k}} \right\}$ denotes an increasing (finite or infinite) sequence of integers $ ( \geq 2)$, we find the radius of convexity $ ( \approx 0.21)$ and the radius of starlikeness $ ( \approx 0.37)$. The extremal function in both cases is $ z + {z^2}/(1 - {z^2}) = z + \Sigma _{k = 1}^\infty {z^{2k}}$ associated with the convex function $ z/(1 - z) = z + \Sigma _{k = 2}^\infty {z^k}$.
