In this suit involving conflicting claims between Utah and the United States to the shorelands around the Great Salt Lake, the Special Master's report, finding that, at the date of Utah's admission to the Union, the Lake was navigable, and that the lake bed passed to Utah at that time is supported by adequate evidence, and is approved by the Court. The parties are invited to address themselves to the decree submitted with the report with a view to agreeing, if possible, upon the issues that have now been settled. Pp. 403 U. S. 9-13.

DOUGLAS, J., delivered the opinion of the Court, in which all members joined except MARSHALL, J., who took no part in the consideration or decision of the case.
