Abstract: A property of maps between closed $ 3$-manifolds, implied by cellularity and implying $ U{V^\infty }$, is that the mapping cylinder embed locally in $ {S^4}$. It is not clear what topological properties are preserved under such maps. In the present note, we show that a closed $ 3$-manifold admits such a map onto $ {S^3}$ if and only if its suspension is $ {S^4}$.
