LEADER: Kenneth Behrens
A complete course in folk guitar which will serve as an
introduction to classical or rock techniques. The
students will need a guitar and a music book, but not the
latter until after the first meeting. Topics: tuning, 30 or
so basic chords, chord diagrams, the capo and structural
theory sufficient to improvise and compose. Ear
training will be covered. Non-western folk music will not
be covered. Also strumming and various special
techniques. The course will probably run through
mid-May. The most desirable format is three meetings
the first week and one meeting a week thereafter, but
FIRST MEETING: Monday, March. 1,4 p.m.
WHERE: Piper Recreation Room (WRH), 540 N. 16th
LEADER: Kenneth Behrens
The course assumes basic knowledge. Almost anyone
who "plays a little" has it. The course will be a
lecture-seminar which will go all semester. We will
analyze the bar chords and build techniques to use them.
These chords will open the way to general theory of the
guitar and of accoustics, if time permits. Specific topics:
bar chords, practical theory, note reading, ear training
and any other related developments desired. The course
should give the student sufficient material to go on by
himself into jazz, rock or classical guitar.
FIRST MEETING: Monday. March 1,3 p.m.

THEOSOPHICAL IMPLICATIONS OF THE
GAME OF GO
LEADER: John Diehl
John Dewey's theory of education will provide the basis
for an investigation of such questions as these: In what
respects does Go embody the ideals of das
gfasperlenspiel in Hesse's Magister Ludi? Is th.i Zen
Buddhist concept of sta'ori the hypostasis of atari in Go?
Do the mystical elements of sat-chit-ananda correspond
to the opening, middle and end game in Go? Does Go
most nearly satisfy the requirements of the Pythagorean
harmony latent in Platonic forms, or rather the oneness
and !ov" rf a Spinozistic universe? Had the Regents been
skilled at Go, would they have thought more
perceptively about the Rozman case?

REVOLUTION AND COUNTERCULTURE
LEADER: Dave McKibbin and Mike Malone
The politics of confrontation has proved ineffective; the
entrenched powers are too strong. We need to reevaluate
the aims of the revolution and to plot new courses of
action. Our intent is to discover the manner in which
this can best be done.

WHERE: Kappa Alpha Theta, 1545 S
LEADER: Rosemary Barclay
This is a study course on the philosopher Nietzsche; I am
teaching it for several types of people: those interested
in philosophy in general, those interested in a general
acquisition of knowledge; and those who want to know
specifically about a controversial pivot figure who
played an important role in theology, political theory,
aesthetical theories, psychology, and of course, the
philosophical development of the twentieth century
western world. I want people to take this course because
they hunger to learn and have not had a sufficient
opportunity to do so. I chose to teach Nietzsche because
it is something I know and know well enough to impart
some of my knowledge. I teach also to learn, therefore, I
welcome all ranks of students from the new recruits to
the five star PHD. I plan to bore none of them.

and nature of science fiction and fantasy, as well as their

WHERE: Lounge at St. Mark's-on-the-Campus
LEADER: Dennis Heffie and Kathy Gregg
The primary pre requisite to fight racist attitudes and
behavior in the community is a sound understanding of
racist attitudes and behavior in oneself. To this end, the
first part of the course will aim at coming to grips with
one's own attitudes through close interpersonal contact
with other students (and faculty) of differing racial
background and readings on healthy personalities by
such authors as Carl Rogers and Sidney Jourard. Some
time will also be spent (especially if much personal
contact with minority people is not possible) with
readings of minority literature to give participants a
sense of Black, Chicano and Indian experience.
The second part of the course will aim at acquiring
effective techniques for overcoming resistance to change
in general and changing racist attitudes in particular.
Practical experience will be mixed with readings in
sociology and psychology of change. Finally, to those
interested, an opportunity will be given to join an
established group, the Human Relations Insight League,
which has been working on changing racist attitudes in
the Lincoln campus and town community.
FIRST MEETING: Thursday, Febr. 25, 8 p.m.
WHERE: Schramm Hall Lounge
Course content could include drug actions and
interactions, the law, treatment and facilities,
sociological aspects, communications and why students
use drugs (by students). The amount of time devoted to
any area would depend upon interest of those taking the
course. The areas covered would not necessarily be in
the order listed above. Suggesticns concerning other
aspects of drug usage are most welcome.
FIRST MEETING: Wednesday, March 17. Watch for
further publicity at that time.

AMERICAN CULTURE AND ITS RELIGION
LEADER: Larry Doerr
An inquiry into the role that religion plays in our
national culture - especially in education, and the role
that t might play, Basic thesis is that of a identifiable
"civil religion", existing both in and outside the formal
churches, which has and does function as an agent of
social control. Through individually chosen areas of
analysis and group discussion we will try to discover the
contents of the "civil religion" and explore the various
ways in which its controlling process has functioned in
our society. Goal will be to see how we might affirm
deny, or creatively alter the forms and functions of civil'
