Abstract: We give a generalization of Bleicher's result on signed sums of th powers. Let be an integral-valued polynomial of degree satisfying the necessary condition that there exists no integer dividing the values for all integers . Then, for every positive integer and every integer , there are infinitely many integers and choices of such that
