World trade called unfair to poor nations
Relationships between rich industrial
nations and poorer developing countries
are unfair in the current world trade sys
tem, according to James Howe, senior
fellow with the Overseas Development
Howe said the council is a foundation
supported "think tank" which considers
the relationships between rich and poor
countries, the world food supply, hunger
and whether or not the world trade and in
vestment systems now are fair to the
Before joining the council, Howe
worked for the U.S. State Dept., Navy
Dept., Bureau of the Budget, Central Plan
ning Office and in United States Opera

Latin America and East Africa.
Howe, a 1944 NU graduate, said in
dustrial nations are willing to buy raw
materials from the developing nations of
Africa, Asia and Latin America, but want
to process them themselves and market the
When developing nations try to sell
processed goods, the industrial countries
raise high tariff barriers, thus condemning
poorer nations to supplying only raw ma
terials, he said.
Howe said a proposal for a change in the
world trade order made last month by Sec
retary of State Henry Kissinger "represents
a basic change in the U.S. response" to the
Kissinger's proposal asks that the United
States buy more processed goods from de

Howe said Kissinger's proposals "went
some direction in what they (the develop
ing nations) want."
"It didn't give anything away, just said
that we will negotiate," Howe said.
Howe, who attended the signing of the
United Nations charter, in 1945, said the

Architect: experience helps Grad was alone composing
Architecture students are sharp, keen
and aware of their field, said Nancy Stark,
a 1966 UNL graduate.
"There is really a freshness about the
freshmen-no pun intended," Stark said.
She suggested areas such as photography,
design graphics or technical design as al
ternatives to regular architecture practice.
"I am a strong believer that experience
is your best teacher," Stark said, so she
went to Stockholm, Sweden, where she
helped design a multi-million dollar shop
She now works at a Minneapolis, Minn.,
firm designing medical centers.
She said her education at UNL made her
proficient in the basic architecture skills
and the technical training was excellent,
because of what she called a progressive
"Architecture here has always been
strong," she said. "And I think it's even
stronger now that it is out from under the
jurisdiction of the College of Engineering

Before Eugene O'Brien was graduated
from the UNL School of Music in 1969 he
was a "big fish in a little pond."
O'Brien, a composer, said that when he
attended UNL, the School of Music offered
no composition degree and he was left to
compose as he pleased.
It was easy to hear student performan
ces of his compositions because he was the
only composition student at UNL, he said.
"I could take off on my own. That's
what I needed," O'Brien said.
After graduating from UNL, O'Brien
studied in Cologne, Germany on a Ful-
bright grant, at Indiana University and at
the American Academy in Rome. He now
teaches and composes at the Cleveland In
stitute of Music.
"Although I think music should com
municate, I'm not always aware of exactly
what my music communicates," he said.
O'Brien said the best advice he can offer
to music students is "Dc those things you
like to and to do the very best you possibly
He said the UNL School of Music is be
coming one of the better state university
music schools in the country.
