Over 250 University stu

in the first two days of the
NFU's registration drive.
This number, according to
Susie Phelps, chairman of the
ASUN's NFU committee, in

for the 21 courses may sur
pass last year's total of 600.
A no-cost, voluntary collec

operation at the University.
"Since we waited to start
registration during the fifth
week of school," Miss Phelps
said, "more students already
know whether or not they can
fit an NFU course into their

that many of the courses have

"The structure of the course
I am organizing," said Dav

how many people sign up and
how they want to handle it."
Kelley, an associate profes

University, is leading "The
Concept of the Incredible".
i There are certain subjects
that are difficult to treat in
the ordinary class situation,
said Kelley, who attended
Harvard Univeristy and has
been with the Nebraska an
thropology department for al
most four years.
"Some courses are o v e r
structured sometimes and for
some students," he said, "the
NFU courses can be a useful
supplement to Univer

"The Concept of the Incre

informal level, Kelley said.

from two different aspects,
what kind of evidence has
been presented and the fac

ing the incredible.
The course will concern it
self, according to Kelley, with
areas such as unidentified
flying objects and ghosts.
"There are a series of ul
timately determined attitudes
towards what may or may
not be believed at a certain
time," he explained.
Factors that affect the cre
dibility of many concepts,
such as ghosts and UFO's,
vary with the individual and

Kelley said that he has col

that the course will be de

can do with these concepts.
