Harvard Student Agencies has elected Paul C. Frohardt '74, to be its president for the 1973-74 term. Frohardt was named at a Board of Directors meeting on March 8.
Frohardt will take office on June 1 and serve an abbreviated eight-month term, to allow HSA to complete its changeover to a fiscal year running from February 1 to January 31.
In the past, fiscal years have run from June 1 to May 31. This arrangement caused continuity problems, according to HSA's February President's Report, since outgoing managers would not stay on through the summer to help in the transition to new management.
Frohardt will have to deal with HSA's linen service, which began this fall to operate with its own equipment.
Since September, the linen service is $2000 ahead under its new arrangement, Arthur I. Segel '73, current HSA president, said yesterday. This $2000 will be applied to the principal of HSA's equipment loan.
An HSA employee said yesterday that HSA has considered discontinuing the linen service. Both Segel and Richard H. Metzner '75, manager of the linen service, denied this.
