Two professors recognized
with Tidball humanity awards
By Chris McCubbin
UNL can seem an uncaring and impersonal
place where people who value the individual
above the institution too often go unthanked
But Sunday night at Saint Mark's on the
Campus two UNL professors were rewarded
for their creative efforts to help people.
Erwin H. Goldenstein of the history and
philosophy of education department and
English professor Gene Bennett Hardy were
honored at the sixth annual Sue Tidball
v. y !
Award Celebration. Each received a $100
check and a certificate.
The Sue Tidball Award honors people at
UNL for creative humanity who contribute to
the development of a humane, open, caring
and educationally creative campus.
Goldenstein recruits and assists minority
faculty and students. He is a designer and
lecturer for the Teachers College's multicul
tural education course. He is on the boards of
Lincoln General Hospital and the Malone.
Hardy has taught at UNL for more than 35
years and began children's literature class.
In 1982, Hardy received the Annis Chaikin
Sorenson Award for distinguished teaching.
Hardy is faculty sponsor of the UNL Christian
Fellowship and has a weekly ministry at the
Nebraska State Penitentiary
Helen Boosalis, former mayor of Lincoln
and 1986 Democratic candidate for governor,
spoke at the awards ceremony about "the
need for humanizing society and large insti
tutions like a university."
Entertainment at the awards celebration
was provided by the Salt Creek String Band,
a local folk ensemble, Roger Gold, a magi
cian, and Lynette Alcorn, a clown. There was
a wine and cheese reception after the presentation.
The other 1987 award nominees were Sue
Dauer, a graduate student and teaching
assistant in Teachers College; Lynn Eisen
man, a clerical assistant with Campus Activi
ties and Programs; C. Edward Jones, a profes
sor in the physics and astronomy department;
Michael Morosin, graduate student in special
education and recipient of the Sue Tidball
award last year; Ian Newman, professor and
director of the school of Health, Physical
Education and Recreation, and Linda
Schwartzkopf, assistant coordinator of pre
Tidball was a counselor for the United Min
istries in Higher Education campus ministry
for 10 years. She died in 1976 of an incurable,
rare blood disease.
The Sue Tidball award is sponsored by the
UMHE ministry of UNL Nominees were sub
mitted from the UNL community, and a 16
member committee selected the winners.

Regents to vote
on Burger King
By Amy Edwards
A lease agreement with Cormack
Enterprises, Inc., will be brought before
the UNL Board of Regents Saturday to
decide whether Burger King will be the
fast-food franchise in the Nebraska
Daryl Swanson, union director, said
the Union Board's decision was a close
call between Burger King and Hardee's
based on the bids from both parties
and student response. The board picked
Burger King in January, but didn't
make their decision public until Mon
day. Swanson said that Hardee's bid about
40,000 per year and Burger King bid
about $42,000 a year, but added that
the "tie-breaker" was an informal pol
ling of students done by Union Board
members. Swanson said that the board
thought there was a strong preference
for Burger King among students, and
the only negative point against Har
dee's was a "lack of presence in this
Many students were not as familiar
with Hardee's as with Burger King,
Swanson said, which would have hurt
Swanson said they were hoping for
the regents to pass the proposed lease
for an April contract so that Burger
King could be operating in the union by
the fall semester. A May contract would
not give the franchise enough time to
open by August, he said.
Craig Cormack, president of Cor
mack Enterprises, Inc., declined to
comment about what the franchise
hoped to gain with the contract until
after the regent's vote on the lease
Jeff Fishback, former Union Board
president, said that the process included
researching and touring the restau
rants, and reviewing the contract proposals.
