We show that, for every partition F of the pairs of natural numbers and for every set C, if C is not recursive in F then there is an infinite set H, such that H is homogeneous for F and C is not recursive in H. We conclude that the formal statement of Ramsey's Theorem for Pairs is not strong enough to prove , the comprehension scheme for arithmetical formulas, within the base theory , the comprehension scheme for recursive formulas. We also show that Ramsey's Theorem for Pairs is strong enough to prove some sentences in first order arithmetic which are not provable within . In particular, Ramsey's Theorem for Pairs is not conservative over for -sentences
