Abstract. A typical statement proved here. Fix integer $r\ge 4$ and $k\ge 2$. Let $S\subset \mathbb {P}^r$ be a finite set such that $d:= \sharp (S)\le rk+1$ and $\sharp (S\cap V)\le r-1$ for each $(r-2)$-dimensional linear subspace $V\subset \mathbb {P}^r$. We have $h^1(\mathcal {I}_S(k)) >0$ if and only if there is a hyperplane $H\subset \mathbb {P}^r$ such that $h^1(H,\mathcal {I}_{S\cap H,H}(k)) >0$. If there is such a hyperplane $H$, then it is unique and $H$ is the unique hyperplane containing the maximal number of points of $S$. If $d \le (r-1)k+1$, then $h^1(\mathcal {I}_S(k)) =0$.
