Item 5.   Other Events.
-------   -------------

          On June 21, 2001, the United States District Court for Arizona
          dismissed two claims against ONEOK, Inc. by Southern Union Company in
          litigation related to ONEOK's terminated merger agreement with
          Southwest Gas Corporation.  The Court dismissed the claim that ONEOK
          conspired with Southwest Gas Corporation and others to fraudulently
          induce Southern Union Company to enter into a confidentiality and
          standstill agreement with Southwest Gas Corporation.  In addition, the
          Court dismissed the claim that ONEOK tortiously interfered with the
          alleged rights of Southern Union Company under that agreement.



     Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the
