B. J. Barnes, '43, has been ac-
cured of "adding a woman's touch"
to the new UN buildings, but the
University alumna eclaims other-
"I'm not here to add a woman's
touch. I'me here to do a man's
job," Miss Barnes says about her
work on the designing staff of the
UN Buildings in New York City.
A GRADUATE of the Univer-
sity architectural school, Miss
Barnes holds forth alone among
the 15 men employed on the de-
signing staff. The planning office
overlooks a "good-sized mudhole"
which will one day hold the World
Headquarters of the United Na-
The young architect has a
healthy enthusiasm for her
work, but most of the people
she meets squelch a little of her
Typical query from people who
hear she's a UN architect is "Do
you think we're ever going to have
a United Nations?"
THOUGH SHE'S not one to
make speeches on world affairs,
Miss Barnes does feel that too'
many people are pessimistic about
the UN's future.
"I hope everyone doesn't feel
like the cab drivers who bring
me to the office in the mornings.
They're pretty dismal about the
The United Nations seems like
a very real and growing thing to

tects, who work at their drawing
boards to the tune of pile drivers
and steam shovels.

employed on the designing staff for the United Nations Buildings
since the staff came into being in 1946. The 27-year old University

"The first steel has just been

hard to keep ahead of the con-

TO THE GRADUATING CLASS...JUNE '49
on last spring as an assistant to
work on French reconstruction.
"Paris is probably the most
beautiful city in the world," she
admitted. But despite attrac-
tions like breakfast in bed every
day, two hours for lunch and
champagne for dinner, she
"spent most of the time being
homesick for New York."
In the designing room Miss
Barnes is very liable to don a
man's blue denim shirt over her
white blouse. Not because she
wants to appear mannish and bus-
inesslike-but just to keep clean.
And the fact that she's known
by her initials-B.J.--isn't an at-
tempt to conceal her identity as
a woman from UN officials. She
says she's just never cared much
for her real name-Belva Jane.
