Item 5.   Other Events and Regulation FD Disclosure

          Western Resources, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Westar
          Industries, Inc. (collectively "Western"), delivered a sale notice
          (the "Sale Notice") on May 30, 2002 to ONEOK, Inc. ("ONEOK") giving
          notice of their intent to sell 4,714,434 shares of common stock, par
          value $.01 per share (the "Common Stock"), of ONEOK and 19,946,448
          shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $.01 per
          share (the "Preferred Stock") of ONEOK (collectively, with the Common
          Stock, the "Sale Securities") representing all of the Common Stock
          and Preferred Stock of ONEOK beneficially owned by Western.

          Pursuant to the terms of the Shareholder Agreement between ONEOK and
          Western dated November 26, 1997, the delivery of the Sale Notice to
          ONEOK gives ONEOK or its designee the option to purchase, for a period
          of 90 days after the date of the Sale Notice, all, but not less than
          all, of the Sale Securities at a price equal to 98.5% of the average
          of the closing prices of ONEOK's Common Stock (the "Market Price")
          during the 20 trading days prior to the date of the Sale Notice. This
          sale period can be extended 30 days after regulatory approvals, but
          not to exceed 180 days after the date of the Sale Notice. If ONEOK
          fails to exercise its rights to purchase the Sale Securities within
          the designated time frame, then ONEOK has two options:

          (a)  ONEOK may inform Western in writing that it will reimburse
               Western for the aggregate difference between the Market Price as
               of the date of the Sale Notice and the Market Price as of the
               date of Western's completing a sale of the Sale Securities, with
               such sale being completed within the latter of 180 days from the
               date of the Sale Notice or 30 days from receipt of all necessary
               regulatory approvals; or

          (b)  If ONEOK does not notify Western of its agreement to reimburse
               Western as stated above, then Western has 16 months from the date
               of the Sale Notice to complete a sale to third party. If such
               sale is not completed within such 16-month period, the Sale
               Securities will once again become subject to the sale provisions
               under the Shareholder Agreement.
