The ordering and superfluidity of 3He-4He mixture films absorbed on H2 were studied. It was shown that the introduction of 3He, in a limited range of 4He coverage brings the normal, superfluid and normal phase again. The results revealed the possibilty of an even lower critical point near or below 0.02 K for the second layer of 3He.
