The effect of nonmagnetic $Ti^{4+}$ substitution for $Mn^{4+}$ on magnetic ordering of $La_{1-x}Pb_x Mn_{1-y} Ti_y O_3$ $(x=0.15, 0.26, and 0.4; 0\leq y \leq x)$ has been studied. The ferromagnetic transition temperature and the magnetization decrease with increasing amount of titanium. Complete substitution of $Mn^{4+}$ by $Ti^{4+}$, for x=y, excludes the $Mn^{3+}-O-Mn^{4+}$ double exchange. However, these compounds still show ferromagnetism if the dilution of the Mn sublattice by Ti is small enough $(y \leq 0.2)$. This ferromagnetism probably originates from a ferromagnetic $Mn^{3+} -O-Mn^{3+}$ superexchange. A thorough study of magnetic properties including AC magnetic susceptibility, magnetization, temperature dependence of coercivity and relaxation of remanent magnetization has been carried out and gives evidence of cluster spin glass behaviour for $La_{0.6} Pb_{0.4} Mn_{0.6} Ti_{0.4} O_3$.
