Abstract: Let $ G$ be a finite, quaternion-free group with exponent $ e$, let $ F$ be a field of characteristic zero and let $ \chi $ be an absolutely irreducible character of $ G$. Suppose that a Sylow $ 2$-subgroup of the Galois group of $ F{(^e}\sqrt 1 )$ over $ F$ is cyclic. It is shown that if $ \chi $ is not real valued, then the Schur index of $ \chi $ over $ F$ is odd.
