RHA elects officers
By ELIZABETH ATKINS
Members of the Residence Halls
Association last night held
elections for executive officers, who
will take over April 1.
LSA sophomore Fouzia Kiani,
Helen Newberry Hall representative
for RHA, was elected president in a
vote of six-to-three against East
Quad representative Adam Waldo,
an LSA freshman. Kiani will
replace current president Becky
Lawrence, an LSA junior.
"I'm excited to work," said Kiani
after the elections. She said her
involvement with the RHA ad hoc
party policy committee, which
helped insititute more liberal party
guidelines, heightened her interest
in student leadership.
Kiani said she feels her
experience in dealing with housing
officials on the ad hoc committee
prepared her for the presidential
position. She said her goals during
the new term will be to maintain
professionalism and efficiency in
RHA's affairs with administrators
and during meetings, to encourage
member participation, and to
increase student awareness of RHA
and its functions.
Brian Sheehy, an engineering
sophomore and East Quad rep-
resentative, was elected vice
president in a eight-to-one vote over
LSA junior P.J. Petitpren, Martha
Sheehy will replace LSA
sophomore Mark Davalos, RHA's
current vice president.
Ken Andrysiak, an engineering
sophomore, ran unopposed for
secretary. He will replace the
current secretary, Dan Tobocman, a
freshman engineering student.
Carlene Garcia, a Stockwell
representative, ran for treasurer
unopposed and will replace LSA
freshman Nancy Moehlman.

friends of a suburban Detroit
missionary imprisoned in the South
African black homeland of Transkei
since Dec. 17 expressed relief and
gratitude following his release early
The State Department notified
U.S. Sen. Carl Levin's office
yesterday morning of the release of
the Rev. Casimir Paulsen, Levin
Paulsen's sister, Valerie Bullock
of Dearborn, said the news came as
a relief -"that's to say the least."
"I just couldn't bleieve it when I
heard," said Bullock, who first heard
the news from her cousin in
Chicago who had been notified by
the State Department.
Paulsen is a Roman Catholic
missionary from Dearborn Heights,
where his order, the Marianhill
Order, is based. He has worked in
Africa since 1966 and has been in
Transkei since 1978.
His associates at the Marianhill
Order also expressed gratitude at his
"We're tremendously relieved -
that's an understatement," said the
Rev. Aloysius Blonigen.
Szura and Blonigen said they
heard about Paulsen's release from
news organizations and had no
official confirmation. They said
they had not been contacted by
Paulsen but expected they will be
among "thousands" he will
Paulsen yesterday was in
Umtata, the capital of Transkei, and
was expected to go tomorrow
afternoon to Johannesburg.
The coalition also wants to know
whether the University will take
similar action if other incidents
According to University
Associate Vice President for
Student Services Thomas Easthope,
"Releasing the name (of the
student) serves no purpose. I'm not
sure the University would ever
release the name." He refused to
discuss what information might
eventually be released.
