Then the three groups San Bernardino, Riverside and Orange counties should sit down and fig ure out how much the Santa Ana falls short of their needs. Does it have only half the water? Three-fourths? Let's say lfs the latter. Then one-fourth must be brought in. Where from? Obvious ly, only Colorado River is pres ently available. Q. Who would do the buying? A. That would have to be worked out. q. By litigation? By adjudira tion? A. Only in the last resort. In fact, let me give San Ber nardino one bit of advice: Don't turn your water problems entire ly over to water attorneys. They tend to think in terms of litiga tion. Keep the general strategy in the hands of community leaders. Q. But you think there must be some sort of unified control of the i Santa Ana River system, all up and down it? A. Eventually. Your problem is arriving at that point with fair ness to everyone. Q. Doesn't that require going to court in other words, adjudication? . , - A. No. I give you the example of West Coast Basin one of the Los Angeles area basins. It was adjudicated. That adjudication took 15 years and cost $5 million just for liti gation. Can you imagine? That figured out at $165 per acre foot of water. I'll give you another example the Central Basin, also in the L. A. area. It was done by volun tary agreement. It saved millions of dollars in litigation costs and years and years in time. Q. Are there other methods? A. Yes. One good tool is the pump tax. The user of basin wa ter pays according to the amount he extracts. This conserves waterand helps in replenishment. The pump tax can be the whole solution in some cases; in oth ers it can work with adjudication, or with voluntary replenishment, or with other basin management plans. . . Q.

He wants to leave the country. The former citizen of China has been an employe of a cotton firm here for 10 years. He was pro moted last year and given the op portunity to be the firm's representative in the Far East. But without citizenship papers he could not get a U.S. passport to leave the country. Lee took the oath of allegiance during naturalization ceremonies here. aardino problem. What should we do? A. First get supplementary water. Then set up lines of communication between the three counties. I would advise you to ask Carl Fossette, manager of the Central and West Basin Replenishment District, to come out and talk with you. He has organized such a program; he can give you valuable pointers. Q. And then? A. And thea work out a practicable, fair program for water use along the Santa Ana. Pon't fight for the sake of fighting. Don't litigate just to be litigating. Water's what you want. Water's what you need. Keep you eye on that. Q. How about you speaking to us?
