Property of Kelley for Confluent Retractible Continua
The property of Kelley for confluent retractable continua is studied. It is shown that a confluent retractable continuum has the property of Kelley if and only if each of its proper subcontinua has the property. An example is constructed of a confluent retractable continuum without the property of Kelley.
