Abstract: Let $ G$ be a compact Lie group and $ H$ a compact Lie subgroup of $ G$ contained in the center of $ G$ with $ {H^m}$ the maximal subgroup in the center, $ H$ being $ H$-boundary. Let $ pr:{H^m} \to H$ be the projection onto the $ r$th factor and $ {H_r}$ be the $ r$th factor of $ {H^m}$. Let $ \{ {L_r}\} $ be a family of subgroups of $ G$ such that $ {L_r} \cap {H_r}$ is nontrivial. Consider a $ G$-manifold $ {M^n}$ with $ pr({G_x} \cap {H^m})$ trivial or containing $ {L_r}$, for every $ x$ in $ {M^n}$. The main result of the paper is that if $ \forall x \in {M^n}$, $ {p_r}({G_x} \cap {H^m})$ is trivial at least for one $ r$, then $ {M^n}$ is a $ G$-boundary.
