Abstract: This paper describes conditions on the intersection of an n-sphere $ \Sigma $ in Euclidean $ (n + 1)$-space $ {E^{n + 1}}$ with the horizontal hyperplanes of $ {E^{n + 1}}$ sufficient to determine that the sphere be nicely embedded. The results generally are pointed towards showing that the complement of $ \Sigma $ is 1-ULC (uniformly locally 1-connected) rather than towards establishing the stronger property that $ \Sigma $ is locally flat. For instance, the main theorem indicates that $ {E^{n + 1}} - \Sigma $ is 1-ULC provided each non-degenerate intersection of $ \Sigma $ and a horizontal hyperplane be an $ (n - 1)$-sphere bicollared both in that hyperplane and in $ \Sigma $ itself $ (n \ne 4)$.
