CUSIP NO.: 298736109          Schedule 13D        March 14, 1997
                                                                 

ITEM 1.   SECURITY AND ISSUER.

               The class of equity securities to which this
          Schedule relates is the common stock, $0.02 par value per
          share ("Common Stock"), of Euronet Systems Inc., a
          Delaware corporation (the "Issuer").

               The address of principal executive office of the
          Issuer is ZSIGMOND TER 10, H-1023 Budapest, Hungary.  The
          United States mailing address of the Issuer is 12617
          Juniper Circle, Leawood, Kansas 66209. 

ITEM 2.   IDENTITY AND BACKGROUND.

               This Schedule is being filed by DST Systems Inc., a
          Delaware corporation (the "Reporting Person").  The
          principal executive office of the Reporting Person is
          located at 333 West 11th Street, Kansas City, Missouri
          64105.

               The Reporting Person provides sophisticated
          information processing and computer software services and
          products to mutual funds, insurance companies, banks and
          other financial services organizations.

               Kansas City Southern Industries, Inc., a Delaware
          corporation ("KCSI"), currently owns approximately 41% of
          the Reporting Person.  In addition, Messrs. Allinson and
          Fitt, who are directors of the Reporting Person, are also
          directors of KCSI.  DST has not entered into any
          agreements with KCSI concerning DST's management and
          policies.  The existence of cumulative voting and the
          exemption of KCSI from DST's stockholder rights plan
          provide KCSI the potential to effectively control DST. 
          However, KCSI disclaims control of DST and beneficial
          ownership of the Issuer's Common Stock and a result of
          KCSI's ownership of DST's common stock.

               Neither the Reporting Person nor any of its
          executive officers or directors hereinafter listed has,
          during the last five years, been convicted in a criminal
          proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar
          misdemeanors).

               Neither the Reporting Person nor any of its
          executive officers or directors hereinafter listed has,
          during the last five years, been a party to a civil
          proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of
          competent jurisdiction and as a result of such proceeding
          was or is subject to a judgment, decree or final order
          enjoining future violations of, or prohibiting or
          mandating activities subject to, federal or state
          securities laws or finding any violation with respect to
          such laws.

          executive officers appear below.  Each such person is a
