Abstract: It is known that if a topological space X is totally countably compact, then (a) $ {X^{{\omega _1}}}$ (the product of $ {\omega _1}$ copies of X) is countably compact, and (b) for every countably compact space Y, the product $ X \times Y$ is countably compact. The main result of this paper is the construction of a space which satisfies (a) and (b), and is not totally countably compact. The example is $ X = \beta (\omega )\backslash t(p)$, where $ t(p)$ is the type of a certain kind of ultrafilter on the natural numbers $ \omega $.
