The present paper is a criticism and a contradiction of J. Gjessing's theory (Gjessing, 1960, 1966) of a subglacial formation of deposits that are actually terraces and bottom sediments of a former glacial (ice-dammed) lakes in East-Central Norway. Gjessing's primary objection against the existence of these lakes led to akward misinterpretations, the most unreasonable consequences and exaggerations of which are stressed critically, in particular his views concerning the following four principal themes: 1. The flat-lying beds in terraces. 2. The shore-lines of former glacial lakes. 3. The \"sheet-like drainage\". 4. The \"ground water level\" within, and below the dead ice body.
