No feedback

on lo~cms

Students do not seem to care about the structure that student aid will take in the future. That was the impression felt by the University of Waterloo senate committee on scholarships and student aid. There was no feedback’ from the students on the report that appeared in the Chevron. At the final meeting on monday the brief was passed by the comwith a few minimal mittee changes. Burt Matthews was present at the proceedings but had little to say to the committee. Leo Johnson and Bert Dejeets had met with him earlier to discuss the report. Henry McCleod pointed out that if the students were forced to pay the whole cost of his university career, he might not continue in the postgraduate level. It would cost $40,000 for a man to obtain his PhD. In the long run this would mean a lack of PhD’s and the universities would have to

turn to the United States for their experts as they did ten years ago. Ken Fryer pointed out that making the man who earns over $20,000 a year pay -more money penalized those who excel1 scholastically since they were the people who would be earning a greater salary after graduation. According to him, it is the desire for higher incomes which makes people excel1 in school and the. incentive to scholarship would be lost if those in the higher income brackets had to pay more money back than those in the lower income group. Leo Johnson warned the com,mittee that there was a new attitude to university coming to Canada. Instead of running a university to benefit society, universities are seen as benefiting only the individual. The brief now goes to the committee of residents of the universities of Ontario.

From the State of New York’s legislation: “An abortional act is justifiable when committed upon a female with her consent by a duly licensed physician acting, (a) under a reasonable belief that such act is necessary to preserve her life, or (b) withing 24 weeks from the commencement of her pregnancy.. . . The act shall take effect July 1,197O.” A lead from a news item dated june 27 of this year: “A worsening incidence of gonorrhea among California teen-agers has caused governor Ronald Reagan to reverse his stand against selling prophylactics to minors. ” A quote from Rene’ Dubos’ 1969 Pulitzer prize winning work, So Human an Animal: “Man is a gregarious animal ; he generally tends to accept crowd. ed environments and even to seek them. While this attitude unquestionably has social advantages, these may not be unmixed blessings. ” REAGAN

AND

THE

V. D.

Reagan didn’t want the “prophylactics to minors” law to pass. Last year he killed the same law in the senate. It was a moral issue. Most issues are. At least they end up that way. Said Reagan, one year ago, “the moral issue inherent ,in this bill must outweigh whatever medical advantages which might result from its approval. ” As is well known, V. D. has been on the increase. California is probably typical of most north american territories. And the California figures are frightening. Over half the V. D. cases are in the under 25 yearold classification. Within this group a projected one-in-ten will contact and report a case of gonorrhea in 1970. In the teen-age group chances increase. One-infive will be treated before graduating from high school. Undoubtedly this is why Reagan has changed . his stand. It took the persuation of a medical man, Dr. Louis Saylor who is state director of public health, to talk him around. All he had to do was point out it would be “immoral” not to. pass the bill. Don’t expect miracles from the bill, however. Senator Beilenson, father of the act, doesn’t feel it will solve the problem. To him it is “a helpful and practical step in the right direction.” It does beat the bill of two years ago which allowed youngsters to “obtain treatment of veneral disease without their parents being notified.” Nevertheless, it is nice to know that Reagan and penicillin are now on the same side of the fence. Every little bit counts. And they have shown a willingness to combat this social ill. It is even possible that Robarts may have heard about it. But don’t count on it. New Yorkers are deathly afraid their charming city will become known as “The abortion capital of the world.”

Scontrol

The situation is strained and strange. Few doctors know anything about abortion. The average gynecologist may now do about one abortion per year. The experience here counts for nought if the. state suddenly become deludged with some 500,000 expected’ applications for the remainder of the year now that the law is in effect. According to Dr. Robert E. Hall, president of the association for the study of abortion and one of legalized abortions staunchest supporters, problems could arise: “Let the floodgates open, let in 500,000, and you will have to have independent clinics to accommodate them. Then you will have deaths, profiteering, gruesome stories on the front page of the papers.” Despite this statement, Dr. Hall is in favour of clinics. He just doesn’t want to see abortion mills that will hurt any chances of other states following the New York lead. Also, the 500,000 figure may be high. Although it is too early to tell, there has not been an abortion rush to New York. Predicted fears have not materialized. NOT

\

CONTROL

The most striking thing about the New York state abortion laws is that they are not viewed by the medical profession as a means of population control. Says one New York doctor, “I’m very much concerned that the public not get the idea that abortion is a substitute for contraception. We’re talking about a surgical procedure vs. a preventitive device. ” Nor was the California act to supply prophylactics to minors a birth control measure. California legislatures still aren’t sure now Gov. Reagan will react to a sterilization bill aimed at adults. Yet both of these acts are the outgrowth of social problems-social problems caused by an increase in population. And both are aimed at helping to solve this problem, however indirectly. It only remains to see how effective they are. Or if they are.effective at all. Turning once more to Rene Dubos, “Crowding, regimented life, environmental pollution, and disturbances of the fundamental biological rhythms are aspects of life which are common to all highly technicized and urbanized societies, rich or poor. These influences elicit from the human organism responses from which are emerging the physical, mental, and social disorders commonly called diseases of civilization.” This means that abortion and prophylactics are only aspirins compared to the measures that will have to be taken in the future to combat problems emerging from increased population. But then, even aspirins are better than no relief at all. They will serve until something better comes along. Providing Of course, that something better is found soon enough. friday

--AN HER SUMMING UP, Miss Stembridge commented on both the manner and the- substance of the lesson. She pointed out that the lesson concentrated on one theme which was significant to the students and that the students made the connections and developed ‘. the ideas themselves. She also said, “People learn from someone they-trust, who trusts them. This trust included Stokely’s J self-trust and trust, or seriousness, about the subject matter.” All the qualities that made Stokely’s lesson successful were absent from Miss White’s lesson: trust all around, including trust in the students’ ability to learn; sensible recognition of-the world - outside the classroom; concentration on subject matter. The ‘brie teacher was an amateur and the students’ presence voluntary, the other a professional and the students’ presence coerced.

Workers just can’t be alienated w len the bosses’profit is at stake

T A TIME OF shrinking corporate profits and stagnant GNP combined with expensive strikes and high suddenly the ruling wage settlements, class has become concerned about the plight of the blue collar worker in the U.S. A confidential report presented to president Nixon on june, titled “The problem of the blue collar worker,” describes the economic frustration and social neglect felt by 70 million people, workers and their families. Although they make $5,000 to $10,000 a year, their real income has been falling for the past 5 years. Socially, the report says, they feel forgotten, and they are “overripe for a political response to the pressing needs they feel so keenly.” Worst of all, they don’t have any self-respect in their skilled and semi-skilled jobs. Solutions suggested by the report are, as the New York Times says, “almost ludicrously minimal” : small local parks, training programs, child-care tax deductions; more low-income housing and improved public transportation are suggested economic aids. To restore pride in manual jobs, the report foresees such radical measures as- national awards for outstanding craftsmen, and portraying skilled trades on postage stamps.

Amazed at alienation? Coincidentally, an article appears in the July issue of Fortune on auto produc’ tion workers. Fortune is amazed at auto workers’ alienation : “The deep dislike of the job and the desire to escape becomes terribly clear twice each day- when shifts end and the men stampede out the plant gates to the parking lots, where they sometimes actually endanger lives in their desperate haste to be gone . . . Some assembly-line workers are so turned off, managers report with astonishment, that they just walk away in mid-shift and don’t even come back to get their pay for the time they have worked.” Fortune quotes workers interviewed in Detroit who complain about dullness of the job, layoffs, unfair foremen, health hazards, noisy and dirty conditions, forced overtime, military discipline, and above all speedup and treatment of workers like machines. Management in/ turn tardiness, complains of absenteeism, shoddy workmanship and minor sabotage (which hurts the reputation of the pro-

duct ) , high turnover, increased fringebenefit demands and union militancy. General Motors chairman James Roche complains that the company increased investment per hourly employee by about 500% in 20 years, but “tools and technology mean nothing if the worker is absent from his job.” Or, as Marx put it, it is the worker <who, adding his labor to the company’s investment, makes profit for the company. No worker, no profit. Absenteeism has also doubled in the last ten years at GM and Ford, most of the increase coming in the last year. An average of 5% of GM’s workers are AWOL at any given time; 10% on fridays and mondays. “Management and the public have lately been shortchanged, ” Roche complained. “We must receive the fair day’s work for the fair day’s wage.” It is clear that the new concern about “who’s down there” has its origin not so much in humanitarian impulse as fear of loss of profits. Corporation managers are confronted by worker rebellion on two sensitive fronts: a refusal to let the government fulfil1 its plan of making workers and the poor pay for inflation, and a refusal to work harder and faster. The first rebellion has received wide publicity due to the many large strikes this year that have achieved high wage increases. After a gradual rise in real wages from 1961-65 (over 2Y0 a year 1, the Vietnam escalation and runaway inflation began, and in the last five years real wages have stagnated and then declined. Median pay raises negotiated in recent years have barely compensated for previous inflation: 5.2Yo in 1967, 6% in ‘68, 7% in ‘69. Now in 1970 workers are determined to achieve raises which will compensate for the inflation expected in the coming contract period as well as making up losses from the last period. Prices rose 14% in the last three.years, and workers expect the same in the next three, and therefore want 25-30% increase over 3 years, or 8-10% yearly. So far settlements this year have been 7.5% in creases per year for electrical workers, 8% for postal and rubber workers, 12% for freight workers, and scattered settlements of 15-30’~ for construction workers. The average for the first half of the year is 8%) excluding construction. Of course, this does not mean that all wages are going up by 8Y0; on the contrary, it could mean a growing discre-

panty between a labor aristocracy in strong unions, and the 75% of workers who are unorganized. Nevertheless, business and government are worried about the growing power of the unions and the “in-f la tionary ” wage increases.

Can’t afford labor? Business Week ( april 11) sums up business’ case against labor demands in an article called “The U.S. can’t afford what labor wants.” The Nixon administration had thought that recent falling profits would cause industry to be tough in contract negotiations, and increasing unemployment would cut down on worker militancy. But to everyone’s surprise, “in the crunch, it turns out, it is not labor that yields but the employer.” Assuming, like most bourgeois economists, that inflation is caused by too much money in the workers’ pockets, Business Week concludes that “the fight to end inflation now hinges on a sharply defined question: Shall the will of the government prevail over the will of organized unions?” Business Week thinks the unions are getting so powerful that they threaten democracy for capitalists: “A democratic society works on the assumption that no group within it can accumulate so much power that it can write its own ticket. The question now forcing itself upon the Nixon administration is whether or not that assumption still holds good where the bargaining power of labor is concerned. In other words, is collecti*ve bargaining still bargaining, or has it become something very close to blackmail by the unions?” Business cries of “blackmail!” when labor increases its share are based on one simple assumption ( that relative wages, or the ratio of wages to profits, should remain the same. (Real wages can rise while relative wages remain constant because the U.S. increases its absolute wealth from third world exploitation. )

Aim is redistribution Labor does not share the convic.tion that it gets a large enough slice of the pie (let alone the unemployed, women, and minority groups). Labor’s struggle to raise wages is intended to cause not inflation, but redistribution. But this is the last solution business and government will entertain; instead, they raise prices and

cry inflation. (Most labor leaders are committed to preserving capitalism by maintaining profits, but rank and file are increasingly demanding a larger share. That is why in recent years one out of seven or eight negotiated settlements is rejected by union membership. 1 In the long run, though, business can easily cope with wage increases, by raising prices and productivity. In fact, until last year productivity per man hour has consistently increased faster than real wages. That means two things: automation and speedup. Speedup has been a chief complaint of workers. For the same real pay they are forced to work harder and faster, thus producing more profit per man hour of work. Through most of the sixties productivity per man hour had tended to increase by 3-4% yearly, but starting around 1966 it began to fall off, until in 1969 manufacturing output per man hour increased by only 1.7’s and total nonfarm output per man hour decreased by 0.6% (Labor and Commerce Dept. statistics 1.No one seems to understand why. Growing power of the unions to achieve high wage settlements can-and probably will-be curtailed \ by law. But management is really worried about workers simply losing their desire to work, which results in decreased output. Refusals to accept speedup would throw a monkey-wrench into the whole system of an expanding economy, since that is where increasing profits come from. To increase output per man hour again, some companies have been cutting down on work weeks and finally laying off workers, thereby hoping to keep production at the same level while paying less in salaries. But that is no real solution: there is no way to guarantee that these fewer workers will feel like working hard, and besides, capitalism must expand production in the long run to exist. An expanding economy depends on more and more value added by labor. This is why Nixon’s foremost recommendation in his june speech on the economy was for a national commission on productivity, and this is why business and government both have recently become concerned about “the problem of the blue-collar worker.” The problem is, simply, how to motivate him or her. We can expect a flurry of sociological and psychological studies on the motivation of workers. In September Fortune will report on “how workers react when behavioral scientists start shaking up the assembly line. ” More and more attempts to make drudge work seem glamourous (postage stamps) and performance incentives will proliferate, along with attempts to obscure the confict between capita1 and labor ( auto companies try sensitivity training for supervisors). But it is unlikely that any of these token gestures will instil1 a lust for alienated labor into a work force that has discovered it dosn’t have to work as hard as it is told to. Alienated labor-labor which produce5 profit for someone else - cannot be ob. scured with sensitivity training and incentives whose real puprose is to create more profit.

As if to prove that is the purpose, Fortune quotes GM’s director of employee research on the subject of worker morale: “We are having very vital, critical changes in our society. And the question is how we- can capitalize on this, how we can exploit the forces of change and profit from them.” Fortune agrees that “top management must increasingly think of its workers and the satisfactions they can and should derive from their work.” “Failure to do so,” Fortune concludes, would mean failure, ultimately, in management’s basic responsibilities to its stockholders as well.” CANADA--Norris - Satire (?) from Punch

Content is the responsibility of the chevron staff, independent of the federation and the university administration; offices in the people’s campus center; phone (519) 578-7070 or university local 3443; telex 0295-748; summer circulaI tion 8,500; Alex Smith, editor. Actually, the headline on page 1 is not a laughing ,matter. Unless people begin taking more of an interest in the Chevron as a means of communicating and presenting something other than the bland tripe in the Kitchenwater Rag, there won’t be much of a future in campus journalism here. The small size of the summer staff is really hindering efforts to dig for news and its associated hypocrisies because fewer of us have to hang around to do more time-consuming production and writing work. You know the Chevron tries whenever possible to present alternate viewpoints, but the most important of such viewpoints-those that relate to situations right here on campus i-are nowhere to be found. Are there any professors, secretaries, security men, turnkeys or students who have alternate viewpoints and who will-express them for the remaining two summer issues or for the twice-weekly onslaught beginning September 1 1 ? Write-phone-drop in: when we have enough staffswe can think about ordering free pizza every deadline night. Well, the photographs did their thing, taking pictures ‘til the cows came home at Undercoming last week; its a good thing they did or there would be nothing in this issue. Hoped to have a scoop on the Guelph student union but we were premature. Maybe next week. Hoped to receive a huge news packet from CUP, but not only was it small, it was non-existent.
