Abstract: Let $ H(A)$ be the Dowker's generalized Hilbert space with weight $ \vert A\vert$, where $ A$ is any infinite set, and $ H\infty (A)$ its subspace consisting of all points which have only finitely many rational coordinates distinct from zero. Using a result of E. Pol, it will be shown that $ H\infty (A)$ is a universal space for countable dimensional metric spaces with weight $ \leq \vert A\vert$.
