Abstract: Assuming GCH, we prove that if $ \kappa $ is a successor cardinal and $ U$ is a uniform ultrafilter on $ \kappa $, then $ U \nrightarrow {(U,3)^2}$. The case $ \kappa = {\omega _1}$ is an old result of Hajnal. Our proof makes use of several known results concerning nonregular, weakly normal and indecomposable ultrafilters, as well as some negative partition relations for uncountable ordinals.
