Passed by the last State Leg- Architect's Conception of New Wiley Shop Wiley's Add Shop Wiley's, Inc., will occupy a building to be constructed on the site of the former Wiley's Home Fashions Shop which was destroyed by fire last January. Phil Wiley, president of the local department store, said the building will bo leased from Mark Industries, Inc., 514 West 1st. Mark Industries acquired the land for the building which will be immediately north of the main Wiley store at First and Main. For Men's Department The new shop area will be occupied by the Wiley's men's department, now located in the main store building. "We anticipate enlarging this department to make a complete men's store," said Wiley. In addition to the front and rear entrances to the new shop, an entrance will bo provided from the first floor of the present Wiley store. "This new building was designed according to our specifications and we expect it, and the shop it will house, to bo a real contribution to the downtown Hutchlnson area," said Wiley. "Additional space will allow for an enlarged shoe department as well as the expansion and relocation of other departments in the store," Wiley said. Construction of the new building, designed by Mann and Company, architects, is expected to start about the first of next year. Work is progressing in moving the entire home furnishing departments of the Wiley store to now quarters on the soull side of First Street across from tile miain store. Home Furnishings Move The Homo Fashions Shop has occupied its new quarters a 21 East 1st, although workmer are still adding finishing touches to the remodeling. Th china, linens, cookwarc, a n c a 11 other housowarcs depart monts will be moved into th< store area on the west of Ib new Home Fashions Shop. "Wo hope to have this trans for complete by the 15th of No vcmber, in time for the Christ mas shopping season," sai Wiley. islalure the new amendments become effective Jan, 1, 1972. One of the biggest changes In the act will be the bringing under coverage of the law cm* ploycrs who employ one or more workers In nny of twenty weeks during either 1971 or 1972 or who have a quarterly payroll of $1500 during cither year. Effective for 1972 the taxable wage base for all covered employers becomes $4200. This amount is also the taxable wage base for the Federal Unemployment Insurance Tax. The amendments to the Kansas Security Law were enacted to conform with legislation passed by Congress in 1970. Passage by the legislature enables employers to receive full tax credit against the federal unemployment tax, Estimates are that 111,000 em- ployers statewide will become covered and participate in the program for the first time. This will add some 65,650 workers to the total already working in covered employment. All aspects of the new changes in Uie law will be discussed dur ing the meeting according to Moore.
