PER CURIAM AND DECREE.
The Special Master, as directed in Nebraska v. Iowa,406 U. S. 117, 406 U. S. 127 (1972), has submitted a proposed Decree. Nebraska accepts it, but Iowa filed five Exceptions, to which Nebraska replied. Upon consideration of the Exceptions in light of our opinion and the Report of the Special Master, Iowa's Exceptions II and III are overruled and Exceptions I, IV, and V are sustained insofar as paragraphs 11 and 12 of the Proposed Decree are revised in the following Decree, the entry of which is directed:
IT IS ORDERED, ADJUDGED, AND DECREED THAT:
1. The Missouri River was the boundary between the States of Iowa and Nebraska which was subject to the general rules of accretion and avulsion until 1943, when the states determined to agree by compact upon a permanent location of the boundary line.
