Abstract: Let $ W$ be a compact $ 3$-dimensional submanifold of $ {S^3}$, and $ C$ be a collection of disjoint simple closed curves on $ \partial W$. We give necessary and sufficient conditions (one extrinsic, one intrinsic) for $ W$ to have an imbedding in $ {S^3}$ so that $ {S^3} - W$ is a union of handlebodies, and $ C$ contains a complete collection of meridia for these handlebodies.
