Registration forms: It's come and get 'em
Since we can't get the forms to the
students, we'll try getting the students
to the forms.
That, essentially, is how the
registrar's office is coping with the
mail strike. Some 25,000 students need
registration authorization forms, and
the registrar's office has established a
pick-up centre in the curling rink of
the Thunderbird Winter Sports
Centre.
Registration authorization forms for
undergraduate students are being
handed out there between 12:30 p.m.
and 8 p.m. on weekdays and between
10 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturdays.
Information on the picking up of
forms is available at 228-2021 or
228-6642. Forms may be collected by
another person on a student's behalf.
Graduate students are asked to pick
up registration material from their
own departments at UBC, any time in
August.
The postal strike also has affected
distribution of calendars and
registration material by Elxtra Sessional
Studies. However, the calendars will
be available after July 28 at all lower
mainland school district offices, and
consultation copies will be available at
all public libraries (except North
Classes start
late this year
A late Labor Day means a late start
for most classes at UBC in September.
Labor Day is Sept. 7 this year, and
students will spend the remainder of
that week registering — at the time
and place specified on their
registration forms.
First classes for almost everybody
will be on Monday, Sept. 14. Evening
courses start that night.
Students in Dentistry (including
dental hygiene), Law and Medicine
are the exceptions. For them, classes
begin Sept. 2.

Elizabeth Johnson, curator of collections at the Museum of Anthropology, displays three of the some 4,000 artifacts valued at
more than $800,000 which have been donated to the Museum since it opened in 1976. She holds a Haida hat, collected in
the 1920s by the mother of museum volunteer Joan Goodall, who donated it to UBC. Museum volunteers who run the gift
shop in the museum foyer funded the purchase of the colorful mask at front left by west coast Indian carver Joe David.

New emphasis on gerontology research
A country is considered 'old' if eight
per cent of its population is over 65.
Canada hit that mark in 1971 and it's
estimated that by the year 2001, 12
per cent of all Canadians will be over
65.
Because this segment of the
population is growing so rapidly, new
emphasis is being placed on
gerontology studies and research at
UBC.
In January a Committee on
Gerontology was established within the
Faculty of Graduate Studies. Six of the
eight members on the new committee
also served on the President's
Committee on Gerontology which
operated at the University from 1974
until the present committee was
formed.
Committee chairman Dr. James
Thornton of the adult education
division at UBC explains the need for
increased research and studies in
gerontology.
"The aging population in Canada is
growing rapidly, due to factors such as
the baby boom after the Second
World War and the fact that people
are living longer.
"Whenever a change in the
population occurs like this, there are
expectations that needs will be met.
Studies are needed on ways that social
policy can accommodate changes from
a youth-oriented to an adult-oriented
society."
Dr. Thornton says the committee is
involved in a number of different
aspects concerning gerontology studies
at UBC.
"The duties of the committee
include the promotion of teaching
programs, graduate studies, and
funded research at the University," he
says. "We are also concerned with the
development of the University's
presence within the community on
issues dealing with aging and the
elderly, the development of workshops
and symposia which contribute to the
training of professionals working with
the elderly, and to the dissemination
of information about aging.
Although UBC doesn't offer a
degree in gerontology, 18 UBC
departments and schools offer courses
concerned with issues of the aging
population, and students can
concentrate in gerontology within their
particular academic field.
The committee has set up a seminar
series for September dealing with
various aspects of aging and the
elderly. Lecturers from different
departments and schools on campus
will discuss topics relating to their
field.
Other members of the Committee
on Gerontology are: Dr. Stanley
Brown, physical education and
recreation; Dr. Susan Butt,
psychology; Prof. Mary Cruise,
nursing; Prof. Mary Hill, social work;
Dr. Donald MacDougall, law; Dr. Roy
Rogers, home economics; Dr. Richard
Seaton, architecture; and Dr. Clyde
Slade, family practice. UBC Reports July 22, 1981
If there's no textbook on the subject, write one
Prof. Pat Marchak frankly admits
that more than a decade as a
Canadian studies teacher and
researcher at the University of B.C.
has taught her one thing — Canadians
know remarkably little about their
own country.
But Prof. Marchak hasn't been
content to sit back and wring her
hands over this knowledge gap.
She's already the author of two
textbooks on Canadian social history,
class structure and industrial and
labor organization which are widely
used in sociology courses at Canadian
universities, including her own at
UBC.
"I wrote them in self-defence," she
says, "because I found that there was
virtually nothing available on these
topics as they relate to Canada that
was useful to students."
Now she's engaged in a more
extensive and long-term project — the
sociology of the resource industries of
British Columbia.
The first fruits of that study — an
in-depth look at the forest industry
and how it affects B.C. communities
and their inhabitants — has been
completed. A book based on her
findings is now being prepared for
publication.
And even as her forest-industry
study is being shepherded through the
press, Prof. Marchak and four
colleagues have launched a three-year
project aimed at dissecting the B.C.
fishing industry.
Ultimately, Prof. Marchak says, her
aim is to build up a composite
sociological picture of a resource
economy — "what happens to working
people and the communities in which
they live when you have a whole
province that is primarily dependent
on the exploitation and export of
natural resources."
Prof. Marchak emphasizes that the
bottom line of her research will be its
effect on classroom teaching. "I want
to be able to take the results into the
classroom and say to students, 'I'm not
guessing about what's happening in
B.C. resource industries. Here's what's
happening and here's the evidence.'
"In addition," she adds, "some of
the information should make it
possible to draw some conclusions that
will serve as the basis for policy
recommendations, something we're
unable to do now because we lack the
data for decision making."
Prof. Marchak's study of the B.C.
forest industry is based on data
collected in three communities —
Mackenzie and Terrace in northern
B.C. and Campbell River on
Vancouver Island, chosen because
each is entirely or largely dependent
on the forest industry for economic
health.
Prof. Marchak and a team of
students gathered data for the study
from two sources — a series of in-
depth interviews with each adult in
385 households in each community
and a questionnaire distributed to 319
other households where interviews were
not carried out. In all, more than
1,400 individuals were used in the
sample.
The purpose of the in-depth
interviews, each of which lasted an
hour, was to get a detailed educational
and work history of every adult in
each household. The individual's
eduction-work experience was then
matched to a political-economic
picture of the B.C. forest industry,
prepared by Prof. Marchak in
advance.
The political-economic picture was
basically a contemporary historical
description of the forest industry which
chronicled such things as geographic
change as well as changes in company
ownership, industry technology and
government legislation.
By matching up the work histories
of individuals with the historical
changes in the industry in recent
decades, Prof. Marchak has built up a
picture of how the industry has
affected the three communities and
the lives of the people who live in
them.
To a significant extent, she says, her
findings fly in the face of conventional
wisdom about the industry and the
people who work in it.
She maintains that the instability
which characterizes the labor force
and B.C. communities which are
dependent on the forest industry is
basically the result of government
legislation and forest company
policies, not the widely held stereotype
of lumber-industry workers as itinerant
employees who move from place to
place because of a strong sense of
independence.
"The basic reason for instability in
the lumber-industry work force is
layoffs and other conditions beyond
the control of workers. In the vast
majority of cases they lose their jobs
because of economic slumps, or
because the company they're working
for is being taken over or going broke.
The reasons have to do with the way
in which the industry is structured, not
with the choices of the workers."
Prof. Marchak's conclusions about
work force instability apply primarily
to people who are employed in B.C.
logging and sawmill operations. A
different employment picture emerges
in a community which has a pulp mill
component, a picture which reflects
changes in the industry over the past
four decades.
Pulp mills are basically automated
operations, which require fewer but
more skilled workers than logging and
sawmill operations. Add to this the
fact that pulp mills are enormously
expensive to build and to close down
and you have a situation in which a
stable labor force is essential.
The response of the industry to this
has been to pay very attractive wages
and to create "company towns" as the
companies move into remote areas of
the province in their quest for raw
material.
Associated sawmill operations,
however, are mechanized rather than
automated, Prof. Marchak points out,
and still require a large number of
unskilled workers. The result is that in
an economic slump, there is a much
greater chance that this work force
will be laid off.
Much of what Prof. Marchak says
about sawmill operations also applies
to the logging end of the forest
industry, which is rapidly becoming
highly mechanized. "In some Interior
towns," she says, "fallers, buckers and
unskilled forest workers are being
phased out because one man operating
a harvesting machine can perform
most of the necessary harvesting
functions."
This enables companies to produce
more raw material than can be
handled at the central, integrated
pulp and sawmill operation, which in
turn allows the companies to lay off
the logging and sawmill work force
while at the same time ensuring the
pulp mill a steady supply of trees to
meet the demand for product.
These trends aren't just guesses, says
Pat Marchak
Prof. Marchak. "I can quite clearly
show, by matching workers' job
histories to changes in the forest
industry in recent decades, that
employment patterns differ for forest
workers depending on whether they
are logging, sawmill or pulp mill
employees."
Prof. Marchak says the situation
described above is a direct result of
provincial government legislation
which results in concentration of the
forest industry in fewer and fewer
hands, puts small companies out of
business and militates against long-
term, stable development.
"The kind of legislation passed by
the government," she says, "determines
what kind of companies are going to
control the resource, even though the
Crown owns the resource and issues
forest management licences that
permit companies to cut the timber.
"Provincial legislation has favored
the growth of large companies which
have tended to put small units out of
business. The companies, in turn,
create employment strategies which,
because of the industry's technology
and markets, make for an unstable
labor force, which creates unstable
communities.
"So the government, on the one
hand, says its policy is to estabish
long-term economic development in
B.C. while, on the other hand, it
creates legislation that militates
against such a policy."
One way in which greater stability
could be imparted to the labor force
and communities dependent on
forestry would be to develop secondary
industry close to the large forest
industry complexes, something Prof.
Marchak doesn't see happening by the
very nature of the way in which the
industry now operates.
"I can't see the forest industry
voluntarily developing secondary
industry. The change has to come at
the provincial and national levels by
governments prepared to introduce
strong protectionist policies and to
insist that some proportion of the
surplus generated in the region should
be reinvested in long-term growth."
Prof. Marchak believes the way to
create stable communities and a stable
labor force is to create legislation and
have economic planning with those
ends in mind, rather than with the
objective of simply providing raw
resources to big companies.
"For example," she says, "a
government-backed marketing board
for export sales or encouragement of
co-operative marketing groups would
remove the major obstacle to smaller,
community-based companies. The
larger companies are not a whole lot
more efficient, in fact they waste a lot
of wood in order to mass-produce
dimensional lumber and pulp. Their
advantage is that they can compete on
world markets because of their size.
"There are a number of
communities in B.C.  — in the Slocan
valley, in the Lardeau valley, up at
Smithers, for example — which have
been trying for years to gain more
local control of the forestry industry.
The municipality of Mission is the only
community now that has a tree-farm
licence. Spokesmen for these
community groups emphasize that
local groups could produce lumber at
much less waste, and would seek ways
of diversifying their economic base." UBC Reports July 22, 1981

'Mac* looks
back on
34 years
Friends and colleagues of Margaret
MacKinnon, secretary in the School of
Home Economics for the past 34 years,
gathered in the Faculty Club last
Wednesday (July 15) for a wine and
cheese reception in her honor.
Miss MacKinnon, who retires on
Aug. 31, was presented with a gold
watch, an engraved plaque and a book
with the signatures of faculty and
students who have known her during
her years at UBC.
It was also announced at the
reception that the faculty/staff lounge
in the new School of Home Economics
building (now under construction) will
be named the Margaret MacKinnon
Lounge.
Miss MacKinnon, or "Mac" as she is
known by students and colleagues,
joined UBC in 1947 as the first
secretary in the School of Home
Economics school. She recalls that
there were six faculty members and
about 100 students in the school at
that time.
"The job has never been boring
because the University has been
growing constantly and there are
always changes," says Miss
MacKinnon. "When I started in 1947,
the School of Home Economics was
housed in three or four huts."
Originally from Moosomin, Sask.,
Miss MacKinnon attended the
Universities of Saskatchewan and
Ottawa and earned a Bachelor of Arts
degree in English. She served in the
women's division of the Royal
Canadian Air Force from 1942-45 and
was posted in London.
When she returned to Canada, she
came to Vancouver for a visit and was
offered the job at UBC.
"I originally planned to stay a year
or two, but I enjoyed the job so much
I decided to stav on," says Miss
MacKinnon.
"In fact," she adds jokingly, "I've
been here so long I think I'm included
in the inventory now, along with the
desks and chairs."
Miss MacKinnon's plans after Aug.
31 include a visit to eastern Canada to
visit friends and relatives.
