On the assumption that the most important configurations in the description of the -hole states in and are and empirical wave functions are deduced that fit both the magnetic moments and the severely inhibited decays of the states. The data require a 10-15% admixture of the hole. The fitted wave functions are compared with the shell-model eigenfunctions that are obtained when the model space consists of nucleons in the shell and a single hole in either the or orbits. Although the shell-model wave functions are very similar to the empirical ones [the probability is at least 0.94], the experimental data are not extremely well reproduced with these wave functions. The implications of this result are discussed in detail. Considering the fact that the values of the quantities to be described are anomalously small we conclude that this model space provides an adequate description of the states in question. The magnetic moment of the hole state in is calculated on the basis of the shell model and shown to be in agreement with a recent experiment.
