The analogy between ordinary glass and other glasses formed by the freezing of certain degrees of freedom, is examd. The dynamic and static quantities during the freezing process are shown to obey a crit. power law slowing down on lowering the temp. There exists a scaling law between the dynamic and the static quantities. A strong qual. similarity of the freezing process to the ordinary glass transition is suggested due to observation of secondary relaxations in and below the region of criticality. A general cluster model has been suggested to the problem of the 'freezing'.
