Abstract: If is a 2-sphere topologically embedded in Euclidean 3-space and is the unit sphere about the origin, then there may not be a homeomorphism of onto itself carrying onto . We show here how to construct a map *f* of onto itself such that is a homeomorphism of onto , and is a compact continuum for each point *x* in . Similar theorems are obtained for 3-cells and disks topologically embedded in .
