Abstract: A Hausdorff arc is a compact connected Hausdorff space with exactly two noncut points. The finite product of a Hausdorff arc is called a Hausdorff hypercube. Suppose that $ X$ is a Hausdorff arc which is first countable at none of its points and $ n$ is a positive integer. We show that every nondegenerate subcontinuum of $ {X^n}$ contains a Hausdorff arc. Thus $ {X^n}$ contains no nondegenerate hereditarily indecomposable continuum.
