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

               On May 21, 2001, the United States District Court for Arizona
          denied the motion filed by Southern Union seeking reconsideration of
          the Court's previous dismissal of the Federal Racketeer Influenced and
          Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) claims against all defendants,
          including ONEOK.  At the same time, the Court applied the same
          rationale and dismissed similar state law racketeering claims against
          the same defendants, including ONEOK.  The dismissal of these RICO
          claims removes the possibility of trebling of damages that might be
          awarded in these actions.



     Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the
registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned hereunto duly authorized, on this 30th day of May 2001.

                                                   ONEOK, Inc.
