percentage of the tuition.
Yesterday, the University offered a number
of new proposals that would affect the benefits
of low-fraction GSIs. University spokeswoman
Julie Peterson said the University has offered
GEO a choice between a salary increase or an
increase in health care benefits.
"Either they agree to increase low frac-
tion GSI salaries immediately by 10 per-
cent, and the new amount would remain
steady through the contract, or we would
pay half of their health care premium,"
But Dobbie said that GSIs that work
less than 10 hours, or low-fraction GSIs,
need both a salary increase and better
health benefits. Currently, low-fraction
GSIs are eligible to buy into the Grad-
Care health plan. GEO offered a coun-
ter-proposal - which the University is
considering - that would allow for a sal-
ary increase for each of the low fractions,
as well as to have the University pay for
half of the health care premium.
Even with significant progress being
made, two key issues that continue to
remain on the table are wages and ben-
efits. Currently a GSI with a .5 fraction,
which means he works 16 to 22 hours a
week, makes $14,000. GEO initially
demanded that salaries be increased to
$15,300 next year and the increase for each
of the following two years be determined
by the consumer price index. Yesterday,
GEO proposed that next year's salary be
increased by 5 percent and then 3 percent
for each of the next two years.
But the University continues to remain firm
behind its desire for a four-year contract that
would provide a 2-percent increase next year
and then a 2.5-percent increase each of the fol-
lowing three years.
Dobbie said that negotiations about salary
have just been numbers back and forth. "We
significantly decreased our wage proposal,"
he said. "(GEO has) made a lot of movement
on wages, and we're hoping that the University
will come our way."
GEO's proposal of a "designated benefi-
ciary" is another issue that the University
has not recently discussed. A designated
beneficiary would be a designated adult
who shares some life element - such as
a joint bank account or child - with the
GEO member and would be eligible to
receive his benefits. The University con-
tinues to claim that the idea will have
significant financial costs, as well as prob-
lems regarding implementation.
Negotiations are currently scheduled
for tomorrow morning.
"It looks like the rough framework is
done and we just need to fill in the con-
tent," Dobbie said. Both parties have said
that negotiation sessions have been pro-
ductive. GEO members have authorized an
open-ended strike beginning on April 4 if
the members feel that the University's pro-
posals are not adequate or in good-faith. A
final vote will take place on Sunday before
a strike can occur.

The reason for the dramatic shortfall lies in a
revised formula for calculating physician supply.
Unanticipated factors, such as the retiring crop of
baby-boomer doctors, higher-than-expected rates of
population and economic growth and new doctors'
desires to work fewer hours. The need for physicians
that are trained in operating new medical technol-
ogy has also inflated the demand.
There has also been an upending of the stance
on medical specialists versus general practitio-
ners. For years, perceiving a glut of specialists,
the federal government subsidized the educa-
tion of general practitioners. Faced with a new-
found shortage of specialists, governmental
caps will be lifted and economic forces will be
allowed to dictate the number of doctors who
Demand is also driven by supply, as studies
have shown that an increased supply of doc-
tors will generate its own increased demand for
health care services.
Richard Cooper, former dean of the Medi-
cal College of Wisconsin, has been warning the
medical community about an impending doc-
tor shortage for years. Cooper's own estimates
show a shortage of up to 200,000 physicians
by 2020. In a November paper in the Annals of
Internal Medicine, Cooper reiterated his stance
that "physician shortages are upon us and are
likely to worsen over time."
In a response, the journal's editors agreed
that "we've barely begun to do the necessary

Children with terminal diseas-

LSA sophomore Jenna Glass,
the director of community affairs
for Make-A-Wish at Michigan,
said it helps children through the
difficult process of dealing with
their diseases. She added that
some of the children are able to
overcome their life-threatening
When the children are making
their wishes, they must choose
one of four options - to go
somewhere, to be something, to
meet someone or to have some-
thing. The most common wish
among the kids is a trip to Dis-
ney Land, Tosoian said. However,
the University chapter had a very
unique wish this year from a little
girl, Charlotte, who wanted to be
a princess for one day. Tosoian
said Charlotte was dressed as a
princess ,and a ball was held in
Glass said she is currently
working with the Make-A-Wish
office in Livonia to choose a wish
her organization will fulfill. "We
want to get a wish done by the
end of this year. They have three
different families to hear back
from, to know that they're willing
to have their wishes done through
a school. In the fall, we're plan-
ning on doing a big travel wish,"

Mironov emerged from the meeting
ready to pass the torch on to Levine, his
friend and former general counsel.
"The road was hard, the friends were
good and being president of MSA was the
greatest honor and responsibility I have
had so far," Mironov said.

these human rights violations, and I see
students writing letters in front of me,
