Franz H. Penner, a 38 year
old University student, an
nounced that he filed Monday
to run for the Nebraska Legis
lature from the 34th District.
Penner has attended the
University as a pre-law stu
dent for the past two semes
ters, but Is not currently en
rolled in order 'i facilitate
his political interests and be
cause of financial reasons.
Penner's main reason for
running for the Legislature is
dissatisfaction with the pres
ent tax system and the fact
that "people should be getting
their money's worth from the
tax dollar."
"We need a complete over
haul of the tax base," Penner
explained, "and we need to
close down the loop holes
in the system." He advocates
an income, property, and
sales tax program.
"I am also concerned by
the great disparity in salaries
here at the University," Pen
ner added. "The salaries are
raised for the top brass, but
what about the rank and file
"Our better teachers are
leaving the University for a
salary ten times as large in
New York," Penner stated.
Penner said that one in
stance of the waste of state
funds is evident in the buy
ing and restoration of the Ken
nard House in Lincoln. He be
lieves that the city should be
paying for it, since it is actu
ally the city's concern.
Penner describes his occu
pation as farming. He has
served two terms as justice
of the peace in Aurora. He is
currently serving on the
Hamilton County Central
Committee of the Democra
tic Party and is executive
secretary of the Nebraska
Council on Family Law.
He is a Nebraska repre
sentative for the United States
Divorce Reform and during
two sessions of Legislature,
Penner worked as a lobbyist
on behalf of personal inter
ests. YDtoHost

Officials To Review
The ASUN public issues
committee is awaiting Univer
sity decisions on its proposals
regarding foreign student
housing before presenting
them before the Lincoln City
Council, according to Terry
Schaaf. chairman of the ASUN
public issues committee.
The Student Senate passed
a series of five proposals re
garding foreign student hous
ing, two of which concerned
the City Council to secure min
imum housing standards for
rental housing.
"We are waiting to find out
exactly how to present our
proposal before the Council,"
Schaaf noted. "It's going to
take a little time to settle.
Also we want to be able to
tell them just what the Uni
versity is doing about the
housing problem and we
have to wait until they de
cide." City Council

Council has already spent
some time investigating ex

centers on whether or not
any changes should be retro

Housing Code
He added that he was in
favor of having a code to ap

before the ordinance would
be enacted.
"It's my guess that the
question will be before the
Council within 30 to 60 days,"
he continued.
John Com stock said the
Council "has been working
on a code that would aply

he was not sure where the
plans stand at present, in
formal hearings had been
held concerning minimum
