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 the applications were Superior Boiler Works, 3524 East 4th; Farmland Industries Steel Products Plant, 3501 East 4th, and a 50.35 acre tract owned by Hutchinson Industrial Development Corp. (HIDI) east of the Fanners 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 ZZ meeting. Dallas Crable, the only commissioner who voted against the expansion!, could have delayet the vote, but opted instead to force a showdown. Third Parcel Is Eyed By School Board Crable voted "no" on a motion by Mayor David! Mackey to lelay action on the proposal. The motion had been seconded )y Commissioner Larry Knipe. But in the showdown vote, Mackey and Knipe sided with commissioners Ken Keast and Tim Martinez. Knipe did win concessions rom Superior that the company would provide screening :or the Homefield residential area to the north. Mackey also got assurances from industrial district spokesmen! that the city would be able to gain needed right of way for future storm drainage projects. Those were the items of concern for Mackey and Knipe and th« reason they wanted the delay. The industries' requests mus be approved by the county com mission, but that is considerec a routine matter. Once the cit; makes a recommendation relat ing to the district, the county follows the request. Admission to the district means the city can not anne? tie industries until 1990, when a non-annexation pact with the istrict is scheduled to expire. District admission transfers tiie property from the Buhler to the Hutchinson School district. The industries' spokesmen made a similar presentation to hat 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 city could not insure industry the stability it would have if in e 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.

Officials, Citizens React Division on Riot Tactics By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Public officials penologists and private citizens reacting to he bloody end of the inmate insurrection at Attica Prison have divided sharply over whether the use of force was necessary. President Nixon, in a tele- shone conversation with Gov. kelson 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 supportec Rockefeller's refusal to grant the prisoner's demand for com plete amnesty for any crimina acts committed during the uprising, aides to the two men said. One authority on prisons, Dr Vernon Fox, who once spen four days "talking down" a rio at Michigan State Prison barged that new York officials- mishandled the situation. Said Despicable "What happened at Attica ,vas 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, author of "Violence Be hind Bars," "Introduction to Correction" and the forthcom ing "When Prisoners Riot." 'Repressive Act Mayor Kenneth A. Gibson o Newark said, "The use oordinated, organized violence n overcoming the inmates at Attica State Prison stands as me of the most callous and >latantly repressive acts ever carried out by a supposedly civilized society on its own >eople ... "When we look at prison conditions and the brutal use of 'orce at Attica we see the same faces of racism which caused and then put down with force civil disturbances in this coun try's ghettos," he said. Rockefeller's action won the support of many fellow gover nors who commented at thei annual conference in San Juan Puerto Rico. Gov. Preston Smith of Texa said, "If they had a coupl days and could not reach a solution, responsible law enforce ment people had no altern live." Ohio Gov. John J. Gilligan aid, "There is no way you can aarley with people on the basis >f their holding hostages. It i mportant to move in early and with overwhelming force." "They should have moved th irst day to stop it," said Gov David Hall of Oklahoma. Highest Ranking In The Fair's History Page 9 The Hutchinson Wednesday, September 15, 1971 ALBUUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The New Mexico State Fair, which drew 693,419 persons in 1970, is among the top 12 fairs in the United States, according to the International Assn. of Fairs and Expositions. The 12th place ranking is the highest ever achieved in the fair's 33-year history. The 11-day exposition this year begins Sept. 16. Highway Patrolman Has Heart Attack LIBERAL — Donald M. Scott, Liberal, a sergeant with the Highway Patrol at Liberal, suffered a heart attack early Sunday morning at his home. He was listed in satisfactory condition Tuesday evening at the Southwest Kansas Medical Center, Liberal. Scott entered the medical center last Thursday for observation and was dismissed Friday. Becoming ill Sunday at 2 a.m. at his home, he was rushed to the center again. Kinsley Agent Quits KINSLEY — Edwards County extension agricultural agent William R. Lotz resigned his post effective Sept. 30. County agent for four years, Lotz will assume a similar post as Buchanan County extension director in Iowa. The Hutehinson 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 Department of Education hearing. The board Monday evening agreed to ask a state hearing on transfer of 330 acres in 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 Gilliland, 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 30th and west of Lorraine to a now platted area. He said he wanted to throw the matter out for board consideration and asked the school 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 request 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.
