Elvis imitator
faces jury trial

MSA reports to regents

(continued from Page 1)
for a jury trial. The trial will be
held April 2 in Alexander's court.
The complaint was filed on Nov.
24. Zafar pleaded not guilty to the
charges at his arraignment Dec. 4,
Rothis was visibly angry at the
hearing yesterday, and said he
wanted Zafar to "leave me alone"
forever. During the hearing, Rothis
indicated that he had felt harassed by
Zafar's calls.
Dagher sees it another way.
:"This is the most ridiculous case
I've ever seen, and it's just pre-
posterous that it's in court," she
said. She agreed her client made the
calls, in which he sang such Elvis
tunes as "Tutti Frutti." But, she
said, "This was not harassment,
this was a joke."

Zafar and Rothis knew each
other slightly before the calls
started.
And, Rothis played along with
the prank, according to Dagher. She
said Rothis would answer the phone
"Elvis Presley Fan Club" when
Zafar called, and would ask when
Elvis would call back.
Neither Rothis nor his attorney,
Robert Cooper, would comment on
the case.
Some of the things "Elvis" said
may have been construed as "off-
color" by Rothis, said Dagher, but
there were never any threats to
Rothis's physical safety. The calls,
said Dagher, were nothing but a
"prank" carried out by Zafar as part
of an "Elvis summer" Zafar and
other engineering students were
celebrating.

Improvements in campus safety,
restructuring the Michigan Student
Assembly's committee system, and
MSA elections will highlight the
assembly's presentation to the
University's Board of Regents
today.
MSA President Kurt Muenchow
will present the assembly's annual
report to the regents, at one of two
opportunities given to MSA each
year to address the board.
"The regents take the oppor -
tunity to review MSA's fiscal
actions and other activities and to
comment and ask questions,"
Muenchow said.
According to Muenchow, this is
the first year the report has included
extensive writeups of MSA's
community involvement in addition
to the financial report.
"It will let people see what
we've accomplished," Muenchow

said. According to the report, MSA
has both restructured its committee
system, now distinguishing bet -
ween committees handling day-to-
day matters and those addressing
campus issues. The assembly also
adopted a system of two elections
each year, to prevent complete
turnover in March.
Chairs of MSA's Women Issues
Committee Hillary Farber, an LSA
junior, and LSA sophomore Jamie
Palter, will present a slide show on
campus safety to the regents.
"This is an update on the

changes which have been made in I
the past couple of years," Palter
said. She said the committee is
impressed with the administration's
response to recent safety concerns,
and will offer a few suggestions for
future improvements.
Regent Deane Baker (D-Ann
Arbor) said the assembly played a
significant role in projects such as
the installation of the emergency
phone system. "I think that by and
large they have done a good job of
being responsible to the students,"
Baker said.
