ORDER OF DISBARMENT
In a letter dated March 3, 1997, to the Clerk of the Appellate Courts, respondent Larry T. Hughes, of Topeka, an attorney admitted to practice law in the state of Kansas, voluntarily surrendered his license to practice law in Kansas, pursuant to Supreme Court Rule 217 (1996 Kan. Ct. R. Annot. 223).

DATED this 11th day of March, 1997.
