Lewin has proved that if S is a ring and R a subring of finite index in S, then R contains an ideal of S which is also of finite index; and Feigelstock has recently shown that other classes of subrings must contain ideals belonging to the same class. We provide some extensions of these results, and apply them to prime rings. In the final section, we investigate finiteness of rings having only finitely many n-th powers, where n ≥ 2 is a fixed positive integer.
