Abstract: In the bordism theory $ {\Omega _ \ast }(Z_2^k)$ of smooth, orientation-preserving $ Z_2^k$-actions all torsion has order two. Furthermore, the torsion classes inject in the unoriented theory $ {N_ \ast }(Z_2^k)$, and any class represented by a stationary-point free action has infinite order. In addition, a procedure is given for producing Smith constructions in some generality.
