ousing Code Issue
Passage Would Benefit
The Minimum Standards
Housing Code is supported
by the ASUN subcommit
tee because poor housing
complicates learning, bet
ter housing attracts better
staff members and it would
assure that low cost hous
ing be brought up to stan
dards, according to sub
committee member Ron
Lincoln voters will decide
the fate of the proposed Min
imum Standards Housing
Code in a city election Tues
day. The City Council ap
proved the measure by a
vote of 6-0 last spring.
The ASUN Special Proj
ects Committee, headed by
Chairman Margo McMas
ter, has been working the
past several weeks in sup
port of the code.
The committee has at
tempted to gain support for
the code by contacting over
1,500 parents of University
students living in Lincoln,
going door-to-door in some
parts of the city and talk
ing with parts of the vot
ing University community,
Miss McMaster said.
Warnet, acting as spokes
man for the subcommittee,
gave three reasons for its
support of the code.
First, many students, for
lack of available transpor
tation, are forced to live
near the campus where

Tickets For

On Thanksgiving
Members of the Inter

drive for football tickets for
orphans on Thanksgiving
Day, according to Jerry Mc
Crery, activities chairman.
"Many students will not
be using their tickets be
cause of the holiday," said
McCrery. He explained that
since this was the last game
there would be no need for
tickets to be returned to
those who donate them.
"Student identification
cards need not accompany
these ticket s," explained
He said that the Univer
sity of Oklahoma-Nebraska
game would be nationally
televised and that a "full
stadium would be impres
sive on TV."

Foreign students. In par

tion. They come to this
countryb get a better ed
ucation only to find inade
quate housing to complicate
the problems of studying
in a foreign country. An im
provement in living condi
tions availabe to students
would benefit the University
as a whole, he said.
Second, faculty members
demand good living condi
tions for their families.
Passage of a minimum
housing code would be an
other step in improving the
University to attract the
competent faculty necessary
for a good univesity, he
A third reason for sub
committee support was giv
en by Jean A 1 1 e m e y e r,
chairman of the housing
code subcommittee.
The student with small in
come will be insured of a
place to live that meets the
housing code's requirements
for safety and welfare, she
The code will help fill the
need for low rent housing
that is up to standards.
Warnet also gave a brief
explanation of the function
of the code.
Inspections w o u Id be
made to determine if there
are existing conditions which
should be corrected. The
homeowner is protected un
der the code by many safe
guards from unlawful
search and every effort
would be made to make this
inspection most convenient
to him, he noted.
The code sets forthde
tailed specifications for
judging substandard condi
tions. This will prevent the
inspector from being arbi
trary in his judgment, War
net said.
The Dode further stipu
lates that one or more sub
standard conditions make a
dwelling unit substandard
only if there is a danger
to life, limb, health, prop
erty, safety or welfare of
the public or occupants of
the dwelling unit.
If the inspectors decide
there is a real danger and
corrective measures must
be taken, they would sub
mit their recomendations to
the City Building Inspec
tor. If the inspector agrees
with the decision the own
er would receive a letter
stating the findings and
the corrective steps recommended.
The owner would have
thirty days to appeal to the
mayor if he does not wish
to accept the recommenda
tions. The decision of the
mayor could be appealed
to regular courts, he pointed .
There is no penalty sec
tion. Violation of any city
ordinance is considered a
misdemeanor as voted by
Lincoln voters in 1966.
If it becomes necessary
to move a person or fam
ily out of their dwelling be
cause of extensive repair or
condemnation, they could
not be moved until they
had been offered "assistance
in relocating in a dewelling
unit which meets the pro
visions of the Code." The
mayor is required by the
Code to designate an agency
to carry out this responsi
bility. The occupant as well as
the owner are held respon
sible for the condition of
the dwelling unit by t h e
code. Specifically, the oc
cupant is responsible for
keping his unit clean, while
the owner is responsible for
keeping the unit in sound
structural condition.

At next Saturday's football game while you are sitting
in your choice student's seat behind the end zone, wont
you pause and give a thought to football's greatest and,
alas, most neglected name ? I refer, of course, to Champers
Champert Sigafoos (1714-1928) started life humbly on
a farm near Thud, Kansas. His mother and father, both
named Walter, were bean-gleaners, and Champert became
a bean-gleaner too. But he tired of the work and went to
Montana where he got a job with a logging firm. Here the
erstwhile bean-gleaner worked as a stump-thumper. After
a month he went to North Dakota where he tended the
furnace in a granary (wheat-heater). Then he drifted to
Texas where he tidied up oil fields (pipe-wiper). Then to
Arizona where he strung dried fruit (fig-rigger). Then
to Kentucky where he fed horses at a breeding farm (oat
toter). Then to Long Island where he dressed poultry
(duck-plucker). Then to Alaska where he drove a delivery
van for a bakery (bread-sledder). Then to Minnesota
where he cat up frozen lakes (ice-slicer). Then to Nevada
where he determined the odds in a gambling house (dice
pricer). Then to Milwaukee where he pasted camera
lenses together (Ze iss-splicer).
Finally he went to Omaha where be got a job in a tan
nery, beating pig hides until they were soft and supple
(hog-flogger). Here occurred the event that changed not
only Champert' life, but all of ours.
Next door to Champert's hog-floggery was a mooring
mast for dirigibles. In flew a dirigible one day, piloted by
a girl named Graffa von Zeppelin. Champert watched
Graffa descend from the dirigible, and his heart turned
over, and he knew love. Though Graffa's beauty was not
quite perfect-one of her legs was shorter than the other
(blimp-gimper) she was nonetheless ravishing, what
with her tawny hair and her eyes of Lake Louise blue and
ber marvelougly articulated haunches. Champert, smitten,
ran quickly back to the hog-floggery to plan the wooing.
lb begin with, naturally, he would give Graffa a pres
ent. This presented problems, for hog-flogging, as we all
know, is a signally underpaid profession. Still, thought
Champert, if he had no money, there were two things ha
did have: ingenuity and pigskin.
So he selected several high grade pelts and stitched
them together and blew air into them and made for Graffa
a perfectly darling little replica of a dirigible. "She will
love this," said he confidently to himself and proceeded to
make ready to call on Graffa.
First, of course, he shaved with Personna Super Stain
less Steel Blades. And wouldn't you ? If you were looking
to impress a girl, if you wanted jowls as smooth as ivory,
dewlaps like damask, a chin strokable, cheeks fondlesome,
upper lip kissable, would you not use the blade that
whisk away whiskers quickly and slickly, tuglessly and
nickleajly, scratehlessly and matchlessly? Would you not;
in short, choose Personna, available both in Injector style
and double-edge style? Of course yon wookL

So Champert, his face a study in epidermal elegance,
rushed next door with his little pigskin dirigible. Bt
Graffs, alas, had run off, alas, with a bush pilot who spe
cialized in dropping limes to scurvy-ridden Eskimo vil
lages (fruit-chuter).
Champert, enraged, started kicking his little pigskin
blimp all over the place. And who should walk by just
then but Jim Thorpe, Knute Rockne, Walter Camp, and
They walked silently, heads down, four discouraged
men. For weeka they had been trying to invent football,
but they couldn't seem to find the right kind of ball. They
tried everything-hockey pucks, badminton birds, bowling
balls, quoits-but nothing worked. Now seeing Champert
kicking his pigskin spheroid, their faces lit up and as one
men tbey hollered "Eureka 1" The rest is history.
