Abstract: It is shown that every nonzero r.e. degree contains an r.e. set without the universal splitting property. That is, if $ \delta $ is any r.e. nonzero degree, there exist r.e. sets $ \emptyset < {}_TB < {}_TA$ with $ \deg (A) = \delta $ such that if $ {A_0} \sqcup {A_1}$ is an r.e. splitting of $ A$, then $ {A_0}\not \equiv {}_TB$. Some generalizations are discussed.
