Abstract: If $ {M^3}$ is an orientable 3-manifold with an $ {S^1}$-action or is a Seifert fiber space, then the 4-manifold obtained by surgery along singular fibers in $ M \times {S^1}$ can also be obtained by surgery in $ {V^3} \times {S^1}$, where V is a manifold related to M but with fewer singular fibers. An application is given to Scharlemann's ``exotic'' $ ({S^3} \times {S^1}\;\char93 \;{S^2} \times {S^2})$'s.
