HCC Board Okays Bid on Art Building The Hutchinson Community College board of trustees Thursday night accepted a $94,401 bid from Atkinson Construction Co. for construction of an art building south of the maintenance - industrial arts complex on the HCC campus. The company's base bid of $87,256 was the lowest by a hair of six submitted, and seven alternates were added to make up the final figure. The amount was at least $20,000 more than original estimates for the art building, since only the shell of the building h ad been considered in the beginning. To Put Underground At the same time, the trustees agreed to begin to put underground the college's electrical lines. Kenneth Bradfield, of Kansas Power and Light, told the trustees that construction of the art building would interfere with lines coming in from 14th Street. In addition, he said, it was time t h e college assumed ownership of the power facilities and began underground installation. Heavy use of power at the college caused some transformers to go out this summer and present facilities are not adequate. By owning the facilities, the college could qualify for a lower large power industrial rate. Agree To Cost The trustees agreed to the $12,000 ^charge suggested and lines will be laid underground from a point in the middle of the maintenance complex yard to the west side of the tennis courts. The art building is to be completed in 120 days. Construction will start immediately. Hospitalized After Chase HAYS — A Hays man, Stan A.

Efficiency., Economy Advocates Switch To Six-Man Jury By CONNIE HARRIS Judge Don Musser, Pittsburg, Id a conference of district udges in Hutchinson Thursday ie best way to hold down jury xpenses is to cut down on the umber of jurors. • Quoting from a brief by U.S. istrict Judge Arthur J. Stany Jr., Musser noted several dvantages of six-man juries, in ddition to savings in juror fees. 'Employment of the six- man jury will result in an bvious saving of time to the court and its supporting personnel, and to counsel," he said. 'The smaller number will ave time in calling, impanel- g and in voir dire examina- on, anfl quite probably in the ngth of the period of jury de- bsration." Musser spoke at the seminar nd conference of the Kansas istrict Judges Association at he Hilton. The convention was to ad- 'Urn Thursday afternoon, but udges were expected to remain r the mid-year meeting of the ansas Bar Association which pens Friday. Leon Jaworski, president of he American Bar Association, is scheduled to speak at i noon luncheon. Musser noted from Stanley's rief that three states, Florida, tah and Virginia, have previous making juries of less than 2 men mandatory in civil jury ials. Thirty-seven othsr states have n some manner provided for ury trial with less than 12-man uries. In an interview, Musser said he knew of 12 district judges in Kansas, including himself, who are or will be experimenting with six-man juries in misdemeanor or civil cases. Kansas statute is not specific the use of juries with less han 12 persons, and Musser aid he anticipates an appeal l be taken soon to the Kanas Supreme Court. Then the Supreme Court will lave to decide whether or not t's proper," he said. In a show of hands, most udges favored the use of uries with less than 12 men. Among those who did not indicate approval were local judges James Rcxroad and William Gossage. Gossage told The News it is ils opinion that a 12-man jury s mandatory in a felony trial, nd he sees no reason to change the procedure for mis- lemenor and civil trials. Judges Back Change in itution ed for comment. Musser reviewed with judges the specifics of Rexroad could not be reach- cational experience for them, Kansas law which provides that jury lists be prepared beginning Jan. 1 from "voter registration records and enumeration or census records of the county." He said he believed any system for preparing the jury lists would be proper as long as it brought about random selection from a cross section of the community. Under the new law, persons who are 18, 19, or 20 years old will be eligible for jury selection. In an interview, Musser said he was "looking forward" to young jurors. "I think having them on the panel will be a wonderful, edu- and it should give the jury a the'better cross section of the coin- new munity than before," he said. Asked what the chances are of an 18-year-old actually serving in a case, Musser replied: "I wouldn't be surprised if the attorneys take them off. It's kind of hard to tell. A lot depends on what kind of person they are representing and whether they trust young pe'o- ple or not." Musser said he has had gooc experience with women on juries. "Lots of time serving on a jury is more convenient for them," he said. "If the woman's a housewife, she can pu off cleaning and scrubbing unti after the trial's over." Credit Nixoji Policy Wholesale Prices Drop WASHINGTON Wholesale prices (AP) dropped last month for the first time in nearly a year and White House economists called it good news that could bs credited to President Nixon's economic policy. "I think we can be quite reassured" that Nixon's policy is working, said Chairman Paul McCracken of the President's Council of Economic Advisers of the three-tenths of one per cent price decline. The report on September wholesale prices was good news for all of us," said Arnold Weber, staff director of Nixon's Cost of Living Council that administers the wage-price freeze. The report covered the first Consti The Kansas Association of District Judges went on record "or the third time Thursday in 'avor of the proposed amendment to the judiciary article of he Kansas constittuion. The action was taken in the closing judges' ;on. session of the two-day convention at the Hil- The proposed amendment would, among other features, create a unified court s y stem in Kansas by giving the Supreme Court supervisory and rule-making powers over all the courts of limited jurisdiction in the state. A concurrent resolution to amend the existing judicial article will be considered by the^ 1972 session of the legislature. If two-thirds of the members of the House of Representatives and two-thirds of the members of the Senate approve this resolution, it would appear on the ballot in the November, 1972, general election. In other action, the judges voted to ask the Supreme Court to issue an advisory opinion on the use of juries with less than 12 men. The Association did not adopt a stand on proposed canons of judicial ethics. According to Jim James, judicial administrator for the Kansas Supreme Court, the judges agreed .to postpone action, because the proposals are only in a tentative state.

Kenyon of Wichita said here Thursday. Kenyon, membership extension agent for the Bureau, was in Hutchinson to announce that Kansans all over the state soon will be able to telephone the Bureau, free, with consumer complaints. "Let's face it, we're in the hands of a group of angry young lawyers like Ralph Nader and Lance Burr and we've got to do something about it. This is what this phone is all about," Kenyon said. Burr is the head of the consumer protection division of the state attorney general's office. Kansans will be able to reach the Bureau by dialing 1-800-362-2182 "without cost to the caller from any place in the state," Kenyon said. The number is in the new Hutchinson phone book. It will be in all the new phone books across the state. Up to this year the Bureau's activity has been limited to Wichita and the surrounding area. Even with the limitation, Kenyon said, the office receives about 50,000 complaint calls a year. "About 50 per cent of the calls we get are settled right there on the phone. We. want people to come to us rather than go to some politician. There has been a lot of feed off when people go to politicians rather than a business organization that knows what it is talking about," Kenyon said. He noted that there are 800 to 900 consumer protection bills pending in Congress alone and said "there never has been anything like this in the. history of American business." He said if the "tide isn't turned" American business "as we know it today" wilt disappear into "a bunch of bad rules and regulations and restrictions that it needs like it needs a hole in the head." Kenyon said pro-business.legislators and bureaucrats have "gotten so sick" of trying to fight the consumer movement they "started looking for somebody to dump it on and we gladly picked up the gauntlet." He said the Bureau is being backed in its expansion by "captains of industry" who have "at last jumped in there with both feet to ... attempt to stem the tide of consumerism. ..." Kansas businessmen are discovering it is necessary to "maintain the proper image of the business community" while dealing wi'h consumer complaints, Kenyon said. Us said allegations that the Bureau has been acting as a tool to protect businesses, not the consumer, had been "blown out of proportion" by members of the press. «" 'ainter.

Weese is carrying warrants or the man's arrest in the names of Charles Edward Cor- lelius and Donald Lee Kaufman, the names he used around Great Bend. "Actually, he used so many names no one seems certain what his real name is," Weese said. When he was arrested in Illinois his description and fingerprints were processed through the national Crime Information Center and Illinois authorities learned he was wanted in Great Bend; at Grand Junction, Colo., on an auto theft charge; in Oregon for escape from the state penitentiary June 15; and by federal authorities on a charge of interstate transportation of a stolen automobile. "We hope that the seriousness of the charges against the man here will prevail on Illinois authorities to allow us to bring him back for trial in Barton County," said Weese., Weese believes that interviews with the man will 'al- : low the Great Bend crimes to be cleared up, even if he does not get custody of the prisoner. Weese knew little about the shooting scrape in Illinois. He said he was told that Calhoun County deputies were called to the north end of the county because of a shooting. A man they were seeking drove off in -a car, later jumping from the car in an escape attempt when he was cornered by Jersey County officers.
