NAMELESS Many a dusty crosroads or obscure obscure railroad siding basks under such a metropolitan designation as Paradise City or Broomcorn Center without even a sheet-iron shack to lend a touch of civilization. But out in Western Kansas, where jackrabbits look like burros and anything anything might happen, is such a situation situation with the English reversed. There is a thriving village, with industries, residents and hot and cold running water, but no name. The Jones-Hettelsater Construction company of Kansas City is building a 100,000-bushel grain elevator for the Collingwood Grain company Hutchison, Kansas, in this unnamed town, which is on the Rock Island railroad, five miles west of Plains. The fact the town has no name is not worrying the contractors, but the fact they cannot ship construction construction materials to it for that reason is a source of worry. As a result of the lack of a name, the material must be billed to Missler or Plains, and then hauled by truck to the elevator. The town is in one of the new wheat producing districts of Kansas, and the fact it has no name is causing causing no anxiety to the Collingwood Grain company—K. C. Journal.
