Subject:  LEGAL - Presentation on legal problems by H. E. Thomas.

Attached is a copy of a talk, "Legal Problems Related to Water
Management Practices in the Pacific Southwest, "presented by
Harold Thomas at a recent meeting of the Pacific Southwest
Interagency Committee (PSIAC).  Written with Harold's usual
clarity and insight, the talk is especially informative on ground-
water administration in California.
