WANTSARECIEVERFOR GAS AND PETROLEUM CO Man at its Head Alio Head of Frontier Refining Company, Hutchinson, Wichita, Kan., June 80.—Involuntary bankruptcy proceedings against tho Kansas GUB and Petroleum company of Wichita instituted in United States district court today by private creditors of the firm. John T. Jayncv, president of tho company, is mado defendant lu the proceedings instituted by the creditors, whose aggregate claims do not exceed $1,200. Tho probable value of tho properties of the Kansas Gas and Petroleum company is not over $150,000, tho petitioners claim. They ask for a re- CO-OPS TAKE UP ' MUNICIPAL NEEDS Committee Diagnoses Ailments JR. eel and Imaginary in Report ^of Civic Qub. "What 1 3 the mutter with Hutchln- non"? This -was the query put to the members of the Co-operative and a committee mado up of Prank tkilladay, Malcolm Mc.Valr, C. W. Hall, Henry Pegucs, H. S. Moore mid Forrest Itoberts, was appointed v to suggest a remedial eouroe of action relative to the question. Mr. Huberts was cliaii-inan. Here's the situation as diagnosed by tho committee: First—There Is nothing intrinsically defective in this town, either by rcasiin ©f its location and potential natural resources, or because of nny REALIZE VALUE OF INSURING WORKMEN Employers Today Remove Possibility of Financial Stringency Due to Accidents. "The business man of today." says • L. P. Yust, manager of the insurance department of the' Brehm Healty company, "rcally .es the full protection of tho workingman 's compensation policy to his business. In olden days without any insurance protection an employe would br-come injured and. with the damitigo that arrived it would greatly impair the financial standing of the man who wished credit in maintaining his business. With tho up-to- dato policies that are written by the standard stock companies of today the business man runs no chance of losing thousands of dollars through BUlts that formerly were so expensive for him to stand. The worklngman 's compensation slate law of Kansas distinctly defines tho damage that arises from an accident, between the employer and employe, and these standard companies positively take the placo of the employer, protecting them against any liability arising from any aeident to any of the co-workers in his business.'* Many a serious accident of today would bankrupt the average business man did he not carry a workman'-.? compensation policy,-Mr. Yiist thinks. Considering-the amount at stake from a business man's standpoint, he readily sees that it is to his benefit to carry this Insurnnco, as it not only keeps him from tho loss of an accident, but strengthens his crVstik at all times. There aro very few firms in Hutchinson that employ any kind of labor but would cunsider a workman'* compensation ^policy as valuable as fire insurance on his stock. CADILUClOMES"OUT SECOND BEST IN CRASH ceiver as "absolutely necessary for J Inherent deficiency in the ^people at the preservation of the assets of the ' ' " ' ~"'~* estate." Alleging that the Kansas Gas and Petroleum Company Is insolvent, tho petitioners charge Uiat an act,,.<if bankruptcy was porformed when part of the firm's property was transferred to creditors other than the petitioners. ' The Loans Large. .Jaynes, a woll known local oil promoter, figured prominently in tho affairs of ^ the American State Bank of Wichita which closed'its doors ahout ton days ago. Ix>ans to Jaynes, amounting- to J700.COO woro said to be Iiartly responsible for the shortage of $1,600,000 In tho bond account of tho bank. Tho loans have never been entered on the books of the institution, and Jaynes' notes are being held in escrow by the state banking department. Besides being president of tho Kan- Bas Gas and Petroleum Company, Jaynes also is head of the Frontier lleflning Company of Hutchinson; the Penn-Western Lubricating • Company of Wichita and a number of filling stations. These, it is understood, will not bo directly affected by the bankruptcy proceedings against tho gas and petroleum -company. SPECTACULAR MAN HUNT FOR ALLEGED SLAYER IS ENDED T. M.

The exutoslon was largo who have ejected -Hutchinson as the home of their business, civil and domestic activities.'• Mental Despondency Unwarranted. Second—There la n great deal of I artificial shortcoming all ot which it. Is possible to remove. Because of" the national and even world conditions existing for the two or three years last paBsed our lovrn Iras •wrought. Itself into a state of unwarranted mentnl despondency. Such n condition is highly contagious and If carried to extrcmes^wlll actually lead on to commercial chaos. This slate of undue mental depression was first conceived by tho emotional jgnorant, preached by Ihe pessimist and finally accepted on blind submission by th03e anxious to find excuses. Soft Pedal Costly Programs. Third—It is true that n.t this time capital is timid and money difficult to obtain, even for -worthy endeavors. In view of this fact your committee believes that any construction pro- giums requiring' considerable sums should bo deterred -until a timo when their consummation will be sanctioned by the community. In this connection it Is urged that, when the proper time arrives, no more wonderful achievement could be attained than the radical Improvement of roado. Must Be Sold on Selves. Fourth— 'It there 1 B n fooling of Ill- will eiiisting lu our trade territory, •thcin -the .fault, is pur OIK ^ We, ourselves, are not "sold" on ourselves, our town and our possibilities. W are Ignorant of the assets wt, tell are our command and disposal, bet u*i. therefore, commence with the small group of men composing this arm of our civic structure, and acquaint ourselves with the vitals of our town. It is recommended that an Educational Program ho conducted within uhls •dub..Must Correct False Reports. Fifth—We should all adopt a more vigilent altitude on events geueratl'T, •In order to correct, fabjo charges now a-eported to bo rfrculathig. But In order 'to rectify .that which results in a deleterious effect weiuust know the facts, and "we mus<t tell them, else our neighbors will naturally accept lies for truth. "There is only one course of action which will remedy false impressions, and tlKit is the vigorous presentment of corrective tacts. It is not fair to ourselves cot to know how to defrcrul ourselves. Invite Other Clubs to Help. Sixth—It is suggested that the Cooperative club Invito the other civic cluti.s to a discussion of tho question, "What Is the matter with Hutchinson." In this way men's minds IIUI be set to thinking and thinking makes for progress. Seventh—The men who travel out of Hutchinson are our representatives on the firing line. Your committee believes that the traveling salesman can do much to help or hurt IIUTWtin- EOU , according to his tone of liis discourse among those with whom ho comes in contact. A dinner for Hutchinson's traveling men could be employed aB an ideal way to help our envoys assume the right attitude and say the right things as selling representatives from Hutchlnsuu. Our job- l hers should give this' dinner and a definite program should be prepared in advance. Kightli—The Bible says that "prido goeth before destruciion and a haughty spirit before a full." bet ns, therefore, get back a little closer to luaiuy's apron string hospitality; and, finally, wo should ail remember that: "It matter not how stait tho gate How charges with ptt^i^iin&nt the scroll, I am the master of my fate 1 am the captain of my soul."
