Gluon bremsstrahlung, q→Gq, and quark pair production from gluons, laggy, in deep inelastic reactions is investigated in the Breit frame (moving along Q in the laboratory). These QCD effects diminish the overall forward momentum. There are also events with a single large p forward jet. One spectacular class of events is predicted in which no forward going hadrons emerge, in the Breit frame. These effects are not mimicked by nonperturbative (limited p) parton jets at large but attainable Q2.
