The first anomaly in the L.R.T. for testing restricted hypotheses was observed by Warrack and Robertson. They found the L.R.T. for testing an order restriction in a normal model to be dominated by a different test. In this paper we deal with a more general situation in which the L. R. T. for testing a face of an acute cone is dominated by a different test that does not take into account some of the information in the model.
