Abstract: A 2-sphere S in Euclidean 3-space $ {E^3}$ is defined to be homogeneous over the subset X of S if for each p, $ q \in X$ there is a homeomorphism $ h:{E^3} \to {E^3}$ such that $ h(S) = S$ and $ h(p) = q$. It is shown that a 2-sphere S in $ {E^3}$ is tame from one side provided S is locally tame modulo a tame 0-dimensional set C such that S is homogeneous over C. An example is described to show that it is necessary to require that C be tame.
