    VALUES AND CELEBRATIONS OF A
NEW SOCIETY
LEADER: Larry Doerr
An exercise in human imagination both on intellectual
and sensual plane. We are looking for individuals,
hopefully with philosophy, anthropology, visual art
forms, creative education religion, and all other
endeavors of full human living, who can turn themselves
totally loose to imagine life styles, roles, identities,
values and forms of a new society, and at the same time
imagine, create and experiment in the celebrative rituals
which might be appropriate to such a new society.
Values and forms of past and present are possible with
the reservation that their only authority is relevance and
meaning for present and future. The commitment is to
conscious planning for the future involving the
wholeness of humans. Goal for the couse might be the
design of one or more celebrative occasions to be
presented to the University community.

PBC-PEOPLE'S BICYCLE CLUB
LEADER: Gary Wolff
Although one may consider the winter season an unusual
time to organize a bicycle club, I feel there are many
things a group can work on and accomplish now to
prepare for an active spring, when warm weather once
again arrives. I have thoughts of a 20-30 mile hike over
Easter vacation, a bicycle race, and a service provided by
the club to furnish bikes at a more feasible price to it's
members. I would like to introduce ecology education
into the program, with speakers and discussions on
ecology being the objectives of hikes and picnics.
Interaction with a variety of people, enjoyment of the
natural sourroundings and an education of the polluting
factors would serve as themes for activities of the club.
Thus; objectives, procedure of attaining objectives, and
financial backing are needed to insure success of club
projects. We will attempt to meet twice a month until
club activities become realities. Everyone is welcome,
whether you have a two-wheeler or not, to the first
meeting.
FIRST MEETING: Thursday, Febr. 25, 7:30 p.m.
