**Abstract:**
Let $\lambda $ be an infinite cardinal. Set $\lambda _0=\lambda $, define $\lambda _{i+1}=2^{\lambda _i}$ for every $i=0,1,\dots $, take $\mu $ as the first cardinal with $\lambda _i<\mu $, $i=0,1,\dots $ and put $\kappa = (\mu ^{\aleph _0})^+$. If $F$ is a torsion-free group of cardinality at least $\kappa $ and $K$ is its subgroup such that $F/K$ is torsion and $|F/K|\leq \lambda $, then $K$ contains a non-zero subgroup pure in $F$. This generalizes the result from a previous paper dealing with $F/K$ $p$-primary. \endabstract
