Lecturer will kick off condom week
By Andrew Lucas
Havingunprotected sex is like play
ing Russian roulette, said Jonathan
Richmond, director of the Office of
Health and Safety for the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention.
Richmond will be giving a speech
entitled “45 Minutes That Could Save
Your Life” tonight at 7 in the Ne
braska Union. Richmond’s speech
will kick off National Condom week,
which begins Tuesday.
The speech will focus on youth
“It’s not just to learn the informa
tion but to change our behavior,”
Richmond said. “I want to give you a
couple challenges. One, talk among
your friends in the same fashion you
would talk about any life-threatening
problem. Secondly, talk to your
younger brothers and sisters.
“We as a society have failed to
bring this message home to our chil
dren,” Richmond said. “Education is
our best means of prevention; there
fore go forth and teach.”
Richmond has spoken on 25 col
lege campuses in the last three years
and will visit five more this year. He
volunteers his time at universities on
behalf of a program set up by the Chi *
Phi National Fraternity.
Richmond’s speech at the Univer- -
sity ofNebraska-Lincoln is beingpre- -
sented through a joint effort by the :
University Health Center, the Kappa i
Alpha Theta Sorority and Chi Phi i
“Chi Phi is celebrating its 100th i
anniversary on campus, Kappa Al- -
pha Theta is celebrating its 125th i
anniversary; along with the health j
center, we wanted to do something ?
that gave back to the university,” Chi
Phi member Scott Henderson said.

Berger was one of two UNL pro
fessors nominated by other faculty
members for the Outstanding Teach
ing and Instructional Creativity
Award. Winners of the award, which
is a university-wide honor, will be
named this spring.
He also has been named as a char
ter member of the university’s Acad
emy of Distinguished Teachers.
Berger said understanding history
was a necessary skill for participating
intelligently in society and making
informed judgments. He said he was
eager to equip students with that skill.
Berger said he was old-fashioned
in his lectures and not comfortable
with technological advances, such as
videos or simulation, which were be
coming more common in lecture
A critical goal in his lectures,
Berger said, is organizing what the
textbook has to say in a manageable
Since 1986, Berger has been the
director of the University Honors Pro
gram. Teaching honors classes is dif
ferent from teaching introductory
classes in two ways, he said.
The class size is one important
factor. For example, he said, about
150 students are in a normal History
101 class. In Berger’s History 101
honors class, 13 students are enrolled.
Berger said the small classes al
lowed students to discuss more theory,
arguments and interpretation of his
tory instead of simply receiving
straight information, which he said
he assumed honors students already ’
Berger said he felt he was nomi
nated for the OTICA award because
he had been well-received by stu
Lloyd Ambrosius, chairman of the
history department, said Berger was
an excellent choice for the award.
“He excites students and makes
complex material easy to understand,”
Ambrosius said. “He is a very caring
teacher, and that is made obvious
both in his teaching and in his dedi
cation to the honors program.”
Berger said, “I am truly honored to
have been nominated and even more
so because I appreciate and know how
many talented teachers there are at *

Reinhard was at a conference in
Cartagena, Colombia, and could not
be reached for comment.
Hinman met with Reinhard and
members of UNL’s NAGPRA com
mittee last June. Committee mem
bers told him about 75 to 80 remains
were identified as Ponca, he said.
Hinman said Reinhard was “quite
interested in research.”
“I told them I was not interested in
research,” Hinman said. “I was inter
ested in reburying the remains.”
Permission for research can be
granted only through a tribal resolu
tion, Hinman said, and neither
Reinhard nor the university received
one from the Oklahoma tribe.
Priscilla Grew, vice chancellor for
research and a member of UNL’s
NAGPRA committee, said she was
not aware of the pending lawsuit.
She said the university issued a
moratorium -— a legal authorization
to stop or delay — on research. Re
search may have been done before the
moratorium, she said.
Grew said identification was the
only work being done on Ponca re
mains. Under NAGPRA, the univer
sity must complete a complete inven
tory of remains by Nov. 16, 1995.
Fred Le Roy, chairman ofthe Ponca
Tribe of Nebraska, said he also had
never given permission to Reinhard
to conduct research.
Le Roy said he would have to
confer with the Ponca Tribe of Okla
homa, but said he wanted to' find a
solution without legal action.
The Oklahoma tribe, Hinman said,
was known for its legal pursuits. He
said he would add to the lawsuit a
claim of illegal possession of prop
“When we met with them, we said,
‘How do you legally establish this
property belongs to the University of
Nebraska-Lincoln?”’ Hinman said.
“This property could legally be estab
lished to the Ponca tribe. They were
illegally in possession of property
that did not belong to them.”
Under federal law, Native Ameri
can tribes are sovereign. Hinman said
the case would be similar if the uni
versity stole burial remains from
France, Canada or England.
“We’re accusing them of grave
robbery,” he said. “We told them as
