Students with a passion for En-
glish, as well as dramatic readings,
trips, career-planning, guest speak-
ers, and magazine publication, can
now find an outlet through the Un-
dergraduate English Association
(UEA) .
In the past, the association has
been plagued by indecision and lack
of student support. As a result, the
association has had to start anew ev-
ery year, said this year's organizers
Kristina Foote and Rhana Jacot,
both senior English majors.
The goal this year is to build up
a strong group that will have leader-
ship to carry over into the next year.

Daily Opinion Page Editor David Schwartz (left), University Regent and 1960 Editorial Director Philip Power (D-Ann Arbor) and former Daily Managing
Editor Steve Knopper discuss the Daily's history at Friday evening's centennial banquet.

ground," said Holst.
"I sense most of the problems at
the Daily can be solved by having
alumni on the Board (of Student
Publications)," Holst continued.
"We nedd to be supportive of the
students. Sometimes we have to let
them make mistakes and fall on
their faces. That's what the Daily is

all about."
Bill Marsh, 1987 Weekend
Magazine editor and currently news
artist at the Philadelphia Inquirer,
said he is also very concerned about
threats to the Daily's editorial free-
dom, and sees it as an issue "for the
alumni to rally around. The battles
that were won in the sixties are not
absolute. It's something your
always have to fight for."
The centennial events also in-

spired many other of the Daily's
current staff members.
LSA sophomore Erica Kohnke
said, "It was really inspiring to see
how close the old Daily staff mem-
bers were after so many years. I felt
a part of a common spirit" seeing
old Daily staffers mingling with to-
day's students, she said.
Graff, as he was readying to
leave Ann Arbor, had some for
advice the current and future staff of

the Daily: "to take chances, be
creative, don't take yourselves too
seriously. Be critical of yourselves
and your work and keep on putting
out the paper."
Campbell said the possibility of
another large reunion in the year
2000 to celebrate "three centuries of
the Daily" was discussed.
Jones said, "We certainly don't
want to wait another hundred years
for the next one."

There are already around 50 people in
the group, from all class levels.
Many of these people are on one or
more of three organizational com-
mittees.
The Academic Committee is or-
ganizing study groups, peer paper
reviews, and workshops on graduate
schools and career options.
Academic functions are not the
only purpose of the group. The Ac-
tivities Committee's purpose is to
"let people have fun with what
they want to do," said committee
chair and senior English major Jen-

nifer McGuone.
An reading of Othello is planned
for the near future, during which
people will be able to act out parts.
Trips, lectures, and meetings with
faculty are also being planned.
The third committee works on
the Yawp, a literary magazine
written and run by students - pub-
lished by the UEA. Short stories,
plays, poems, art work, and other
literary work are being accepted from
now until December for the first edi-
tion, which will appear in mid to
late January. The second edition will
be out in April.
There were over 300 submissions
last year, from a wide range of stu-
dents, not just English majors, said
Jacot.
Foote and Jacot agree the main
purpose of the association is to pro-
vide a spirit of community among
English majors. There are approxi
mately 911 English majors, and it's
"kind of ludicrous that there is no
group (to provide this)," said Foote.
The UEA brings together people
with similar interests. For Jacot, th
group is a place to meet with people
outside of class. "It's nice to have
people recognize your allusions,"
she said.
Jacot stressed that the group is
open to new input and ideas from.
