Vote is 4-1 Industrial Area Moves Approved City commissioners voted 4-1 Tuesday to allow two existing industries and an. undeveloped tract adjacent to the Hutchinson Industrial District to join the district. Properties granted tlie applications were Superior Boiler Worlis, 3524 East 4tli; Farmland Industries Steel Products Plant, 3501 East 4tb, and a 50.35 acre tract owned by Hutchinson Industrial Development Corp. (HIDI) east of the Farmers Coop Elevator. The commission's action came after nearly an hour of discussion. The Superior request had been debated at length at the commission's June 22 meeting. Dallas Crable, the only commissioner who voted against the expansion, could have delayed: the vote, but opted instead to force a showdown. Third Parcel Is Eyed By School Board The Hutchinson school district will begin collecting information on acquisition of an additional parcel of land along its border while pushing the proposed transfer of two other areas to a State Deparfcmenit of Education bearing. The board Monday evening agreed to ask a state hearing on transfer of 330 acres ia two areas into the Hutchinson district from the Buhler district. A meeting of the two boards last week failed to bring about agreement on a transfer. The areas are located on east 17th, site of a proposed $5 million shopping center, and on east 30th, west of Lorraine and south of 23rd. Both are within the city limits. Bob GiUiland, Hutchinson school board member, said an equally good case could be made for acquisition of 80 acres known as the N. F. English Estate, north of 3(rth and west of Lorraine to a now platted area. He said he wanted U> throw the matter out for board consideration and asked the sdiool administration to collect data on number of students and residents involved and other information about the area. Additional transfer requests apparently would have to go the route of the previous ret- quest notification of the other school board and a conference to try to work out an agreement and, if none was forthcoming, appeal to the State Department of Education for a hearing. Crable voted "no" on a motion by Mayor David! Mackey to delay action on the proposal. The motion had been seconded by Commissioner Larry Knipe. But in the showdown vote, Mackey and Knipe sided with commissioners Ken Keast and Jim Martinez, Knipe did win concessions from Superior that the company would provide screening for the Homefield residential area to the north. Mackey also got assurances from mthistrial district spokesmen that the city "would be able to gain needed right of way for futwe storm dlrainage projects. Those were the items of con-, cem for Mackey and Knipe, and th« reason they wanted the delay. The industries' requests must be approved by the county commission, but Uiat is considered a routine matter. Once the city makes a recommendation relating to the district, the county foUowa the request. Admission to the district means the city can not annex the industries until 1990, when a non-annexation pact with the district is scheduled to expu-e. District admission transfers the property from the Buhler to the Hutchinson School district. The industries' spokesmen made a similar presentation to that by Superior in June and by the district itself earlier this year when it was granted the 20 year extension on the non- annexation pact. Bill Mitchell, attorney for Superior, told the commission the dty could not insure industry the stability it would have if in the district. • He said Superior was planning on expanding, but now has ample land! on which to grow. Elwin Cabbage, attorney for Farmland, said all the requests were "logical extensions of the district." Industrial district officials continued to cite their role as an incentive for attracting new industries.

Officiak, Citizens React Division on Riot Tactics Page 9 The Hutchinson N63«l;=^ Wednesday, September 15, 1971 By THE ASSOCL^TED PRESS Public officials penologists and private citizens reacting to the bloody end of the inmate insurrection at Attica Prison have divided shai'ply over whether the use of force was necessary. President Nixon, in a telephone conversation with Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller, expressed support for the governor's response to the four day rebellion that ended with nine hostages and 32 inmates killed. Nixon particularly supported Rockefeller's refusal to grant the prisoner's demand for complete amnesty for any criminal acts committed during the up- risuig, aides to the two men said. One authority on prisons, Dr. Vernon Fox, who once spent four days "talking down" a riot at Michigan State Prison, charged that new York officials mishandled the situation. Said Despicable "What happened at Attica was despicable," said Fox, now a criminologist at Florida State University. He called the move "an appalling massacre." "The state was legitimizing murder," he said. "There was no reason to kill anybody. Another 24 hours of talking wouldn't have done any harm and it might have saved the lives of 23 i n m a t e s and nine guards." "The primary reason for the use of force is always to create an image for the public," said Fox, auUior of "Violence Behind Bars," "Introduction to Correction" and the forthcoming "When Prisoners Riot," 'Repressive Act Mayor Kenneth A. Gibson of Newark said, "The use of coordinated, organized violence in overcoming the inmates at Attica State Prison stands as one of the most callous and blatantly repressive acts ever carried out by a supposedly civilized society on its own people ... "When we look at prison conditions and the brutal use of force at Attica we see the same faces of racism which caused and then put down with force civil disturbances in tliis country's ghettos," he said. Rockefeller's action won the support of many fellow governors who commented at their annual conference in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Gov. Preston Smith of Texas said, "If they had a couple days and could not reach a solution, responsible law enforcement people had no alternative." Ohio Gov. John J. Gilligan said, "There is no way you can parley with people on the basis of their holding hostages. It is important to move in eariy and with overwhelming force." "They should have moved the first day to stop it," said Gov, David Hall of Oklahoma. Highest Ranking In The Fair's History ALBUUERQUE, N.M.
