Smith said the GEO membership will
have full power to decide which issues
are most germane in the contract nego-
tiations at the Wednesday meeting.
"We're not going to speculate for the
membership," Smith said. "They are
going to make their own decisions
about which issues they're willing to
walk out on, the issues that they need to
9e in the contract to be happy."
Odier-Fink said the membership will
also have to make a difficult decision at
the upcoming meeting - whether they
Waht to take a job action and when.
'"They will have to decide if they're
willing to do something very bad in the
short run - a walkout does not feel
gdod - to make sure the undergradu-
ates at the University are properly edu-
cated in the long run," Odier-Fink said.
Odier-Fink added that after the mem-
bership determines its most important
issues and its job-action status, the GEO
stewards will prepare a new package
after the meeting and present it to the
University at Thursday's negotiations.
GEO will give the University a
deadline to satisfy their requests,
Odier-Fink said. If the University does
not comply with GEO's desires, Odier-
Fink said the membership will take job
action if they vote to do so at
Gamble said he looks forward to see-
ing GEO drop some of its issues and
altering its contract for Thursday's
negotiation session. But he said he feels
mediation might be necessary if the
negotiations continue to drag along at
the current pace.
"Things have been moving along
very slowly and it doesn't look like
either side is making movement,"
Gamble said. "We might have reached
the time to get a third party in the nego-
tiations - a state mediator."
But Odier-Fink said GEO is not at all
interested in mediation with the
University, claiming a mediator has
been detrimental to GEO during the
past two contract negotiations.
"In the past, the mediator has pretty
much forced us to take the University's
offer," Odier-Fink said. "In 1993 and
1996, he screwed us over and we're not
going to let that happen again."
GEO's membership meeting, which
is open to the public, is scheduled to
take place from 7 to 8 p.m. Wednesday
in the Michigan League Ballroom.

Nate Smith-Tyge, chair of MSU's student government, said
the council has asked students on the assembly to participate
on the council.
"It shows the need for restauranteurs and bar owners to put
together responsible hospitality" Smith-Tyge said. "People are
sort of learning their lesson from what happened at Rick's with
Lasher said "the majority of bars and restaurants do handle
this responsibly" and added that East Lansing liquor licensees
who did not support the council would appear conspicuous.
*"I think the community would look at the ones who say they
won't join in and ask what their priorities are," Lasher said.
Reducing drink specials would not cause a decline in busi-
ness, Lasher said, comparing the idea to anti-smoking ordi-
nances placed on California bars last year.
"In a lot of those places their business actually went up,"
Scott Stanton, a manager at Touchdown Cafe in Ann Arbor,
said the problem of binge drinking lies not in the price of alco-
hol but in people's mindset when they go to bars.
"I don't think that it's necessarily the drink specials that cause
people to come out and drink," he said. Raising prices "would
change people's bar habits but it wouldn't curb drinking."
Jim Paron, an owner of the Brown Jug Restaurant, said the
burden is on restaurant and bar owners to properly educate
"The essence of the problem doesn't have to do with the cost
of the alcohol," Paron said. "The problem has to do with the
need for responsible service."
But each individual makes the choice to get drunk and drink
prices do not factor into that decision, Paron said.
"Making a rule that would prohibit those kinds of deals will
not correct the situation.," Paron said. "If somebody's inten-
tions are to get drunk ... they can go to a convenience store and
get cheap beer there."
LSA sophomores Deborah and Catherine Org and LSA junior Yee Wei Chal wave to their parents in Singapore on

Duke administrators agreed to sever con-
cts with companies that will not agree to
blic disclosure in the next year. -
Almieda said if the University decides
to take similar action, universities nation-
wide may be more likely to follow actions
of Duke, Georgetown and Wisconsin.
"The addition of Michigan would create a
great snowball effect," Almieda said.
Bollinger told the group that sweatshop
labor in the collegiate apparel industry is
an issue he wants to address. The
iversity currently has a multi-million
liar apparel contract with Nike.
"I care deeply about this issue,"
Bollinger said. "We are at the right stage to
talk seriously about this"
Members of SOLE plan to meet with
University General Counsel Marvin
Krislov tomorrow to present their proposal
for public disclosure and the living wage.
"We are not very far apart at all, we just
need to talk more," Bollinger said.
SOLE members said Bollinger plans to
make a statement on the issue next week.
LSA junior Mara Luna told Bollinger at
the meeting about her visit with factory
workers in El Salvador last August. As part
of a group of students from Cleveland,
Luna and 12 other high school and college
students met with unionized women who
produce clothing for JC Penny, GAP and
Luna said the women told her that
applying corporate pressure in the United
States is a better way to take action than
boycotting the products they produce.
"They really rely on us to help," Luna
said. "We have a lot more strength."
SOLE members were pleased with
Bollinger's response to their ultimatum.
"I was very impressed in the way he lis-
tened to us" Luna said.
SOLE members said the University
needs make the labor issue a priority.
"I know he is committed to this, but he
is administration and it's all a matter of
timing," said LSA senior and SOLE mem-
ber Trevor Gardner, adding that "it's our
responsibility to make sure he makes this a

Exuberance and jubilation filled
the air Friday night at the Chrysler
Center where more than 60
Singaporean students gathered to
celebrate the Chinese New Year
with their friends and family back
home through the use of video tele-
The event, sponsored by
Contact Singapore, an organiza-
tion devoted to providing services
for Singaporeans working and
learning abroad, gave members of
the Singaporean Student's
Association the opportunity to see
and speak with their friends and
family with a video link-up.
Wai-Hoong Fock, an LSA junior
and president of the SSA, said the
event was significant to each of its
"We are the first University to do
this with Singapore. Getting to meet
with our families through the use of
technology is a wonderful opportuni-
ty," Fock said.
The affair began with the
Singaporean families, who were
standing by at the National
University of Singapore, viewing
a video montage displaying a
number of the experiences had by
their children abroad.
Shortly thereafter, Singapore's
Minister of State for Home Affairs
Ho Peng Kee expressed words of
praise and confidence to the stu-
dents in Ann Arbor.
"Stay together. Encourage each
other," Kee said. "Make your par-
ents proud. Make Singapore
Following the guest speaker, stu-
dents had the opportunity to visit
individually with their parents.
Chair of the event's organizing com-
mittee and LSA junior Chai Yee Wei
talked about what the Chinese New
Year, as well as this opportunity,
meant to him.
"The Chinese New Year is a festi-
val of reunion, where families and
friends get together. It is similar to
Thanksgiving for Americans," Wei
said. "Thanks to the technology and

Director Lee Sar Tan said she could
see the importance of the experi-
ence on the faces of the many stu-
dents in the North Campus building.
"You can see from the expres-
sions that this is an emotional
experience, especially for the
freshmen. Being away from home
is very difficult, and that is why
Contact Singapore is running this
event for them" she said.
Since few Singaporean students
will have to opportunity to return
home for the upcoming spring
break, this event provided them
with their only opportunity to see
their families until after the com-
pletion of the school year.
