Yolanda "Can field" incentive awards

by Oleta Tinnin

Yolanda Canfield, Secretary of
the Panama Canal Commission's
Incentive Awards Committee, is a
perfect choice for the program she
represents. Under the auspices of the
Incentive Awards Committee and
the Office of Personnel Administra-
tion, Ms. Canfield has helped make
the Commission's Incentive Awards
Program one of the top runners
among those of U.S. government
agencies worldwide and, still going
strong, plans to keep the program
steady on the upward climb.
According to, Ms. Canfield, more
people could be receiving awards
and she plans to do whatever it takes
to remedy this situation. "It's one of
my pet projects," she admits. "I could
talk on the subject for hours." She
says she suspects that there are many
Commission employees who see a
problem and work out a solution,

implement the solution and continue
working without pausing to reflect
that that solution might be a
valuable money-saving idea for
others in the organization and
should be shared. "That's the
reasoning behind the suggestion
program," she adds, "to reward a
money-saving idea with a cash
award and to pass the idea on to
everyone in the organization who
can make efficient use of it."
Ms. Canfield and the other
members of the Incentive Awards
Section have been involved recently
in the processing of Performance
Awards with cash payments for
money-saving production and for
generally doing. more than what the
job requires. "An employee who
consistently performs in an out-
standing manner should receive
appropriate recognition," Ms. Can-
field maintains, adding that she and
the other members of the committee

agree with the Commission manage-
ment that outstanding ratings and/
or cash awards are an incentive both
to the recipient for continued
commendable achievement and to
fellow-workers for improvement in
their own performances.
Constantly thinking about the
program and trying to visualize ways
to enhance it, Ms. Canfield's aim is
to come up with new and ingenious
methods of operating the system
with optimum results. "There: are
over 8,000 brains employed in the
Commission," she estimates, "and
every one of them is teeming with
ideas. All we have to do is to get them
to thinking on the subject." And the
subject, in her opinion, is the
Commission and how to improve an
already thriving operation.
In addition to a contagious
enthusiasm, Ms. Canfield has a
history in which ambition to serve
and to achieve has enmeshed itself
with a drive to understand the
operational organization and to find
out how it can be improved.
As a child attending St. Francis'
elementary school in the Canal area
(now St. Mary's),she once expressed
the desire to achieve something with
her life and not to end up "just
another cross marking a grave."
Going from there to St. Mary of the
Pines in Chattawa, Miss., she earned
a scholarship to continue her studies
in the architectural field, but family
obligations made it impossible for
her to accept the scholarship. She
returned to Panama and took a
position with the Army Quarter-
master Section "adding up ice bills,"
but soon went from that job to a
position with an airline at the airport
that was then located in Albrook. In
this job, she took an interest in the
Cargo Section and in the personnel
conditions there. Later what she
learned in this position helped her
when she became manager of a large
corporation in another Central
American country. Returning to
Panama, she sought employment
with the Canal organization and
shortly thereafter went to work on
the Incentive Awards Program.
"At that time, I wasn't sold on the
program," she admits, "but I was
sold on efficiency and people and I
soon saw that the awards program
was a combination of the two." Since
that time, she says, her energv hI-

USICA aids U

By Barbara Miller
Bureaucrats in Washington, D.C.,
can't seem to agree on a description
for the activities of the U.S.
International Communication Agency
(USICA). Some want to say:
Information, culture and education.
Others prefer Culture, education
and information. Whatever the
order, all three can be found in
abundance at USICA's office in the
building-in-the-round (Edificio Gus-
romares) at the corer of Federico
Boyd and Avenida Balboa.
On the ground floor of the
building is USICA's Amador-Wash-
ington Library. Last week, Informa-
tion Officer James C. Palmer,
Cultural Affairs Officer Paul Sax-
ton, and Regional Librarian Daniel
Maratos were available to talk about
the agency's role in Panama.
One of 203 such posts in 126
countries, Panama's USICA office
exists to promote mutual under-
standing between Panama and the
United States through many forms
of communication. The library, as an
important vehicle for communica-
tion, is a place where citizens of
Panama can come into contact with
U.S. culture.
Signs in the library direct the
reader to about 8,000 volumes,
ranging from treatises on science and
technology to art. Mr. Maratos said
that 40 percent of these publications
are in the Spanish language. Dis-
played along one wall are some of
the 90 U.S. periodicals to which the
library subscribes, and carrels on the
opposite wall are equipped with
headphones for the enjoyment of the
library's record collection. In a
separate area is a screening room
where visitors can arrange to view
selections from the videotape library.
Paintings by local artists are
exhibited on the library's walls.
Copies of the Calendar of Ac-
tivities, a list of cultural happenings
compiled monthly by USICA, are
available at the reference desk. Some
of these events are sponsored by
USICA. As Mr. Saxton explained,
USICA is continuously engaged in
cooperative efforts with Panama-
nian organizations to bring U.S.
performers to Panama. In the area of
music, for example, the agency has
worked with Jazz Unlimited to
sponsor several jazz concerts, and it
is currently making plans for a
performance by jazz pianist McCoy

Ada Huertas, a student at Colegio Jose Antonio Rem6n Cantera, is
helped by librarian Elia de Garuz at USICA's Amador-Washington
Library. Ms. Gartz has worked in the library for 10 of her 33 years with

Tyner in September. The proceeds
from such events are used for a local
music scholarship program. USICA
also sponsors dance groups and
contributes to the support of the
Panama National Ballet.
Mr. Saxton calls USICA an
educational "clearinghouse." A ma-
jority of the library's more than 200
visitors per day are students or
academicians. Of interest to many
are the U.S. college catalogs on file.
In addition, USICA administers
the Fulbright Program, and there is
currently a Fulbright Professor of
Literature at the University -of
Panama. The agency arranges short-
term study programs in the United
States, administers a scholarship
program for undergraduate studies
in the United States, and helps match
up potential fellowship winners with
private foundations. Students who
want to study English in the United
States are provided with information
The library is only one of the
means by which USICA shares
information with Panama. The
teletype machine, which Mr. Palmer
said will soon be replaced by a
computer, receives transmissions
from USICA's home office in
Washington, D.C., and forms the
basis for the "wireless file." From this
file, news releases are written and
circulated to officials of the govern-
ment of Panama as well as to the
local media and the business com-
munity. The "wireless file" is also the
principal source of such material as
texts of speeches and important
background documents, which are

distributed through USICA's INFO
program. USICA also provides news
clips and films to local television
stations and distributes a 30-minute
weekly radio show called "Rendez-
vous Semanal." The office sends
correspondent feeds to USICA's
Voice of America.
USICA-Panama is staffed by
Panamanian professionals and U.S.
Foreign Service Officers. Robert
Powers is the director.
An independent government
agency, USICA was established in
1953 as the United States Informa-
tion Agency. The name was changed
in 1978 to reflect the agency's new

Segun la Sra. Canfield, muchas
mas personas podrian recibir pre-
mios por sugerencias valiosas, y para
alentarlas a presentar sus iniciativas
se propone hacer lo que sea
necesario. "Es uno de mis proyectos
consentidos", reconoce. "Podria ha-
blar horas sobre el tema".
En opinion de la Sra. Canfield,

sin percatarse de que tal soluci6n
represent un ahorro significativo y
que su idea merece ser compartida.
"La filosofial del progrma de suge-

ahorros de dinero y hacerlas conocer
a todas las personas en la organiza-

miembros del Comit6 estin plena-
mente de acuerdo con las evaluacio-

los premios que alientan ese esfuerzo
del empleado y de sus compafieros a
mejorar su desempefio.
En su constant preocupaci6n por
mejorar el program, la Sra. Can-

ingeniosos que permitan 6ptimos
resultados. "Hay mas de 8,000
cerebros empleados en la Comisi6n",
afirma, "y cada uno es fuente de

Panama y E.U. se comunican via

Por Barbara Miller
Los bur6cratas en Washington no
pueden ponerse de acuerdo en la
forma de describir las actividades de
la Agencia de los Estados Unidos
para la Comunicaci6n Internacional
(USICA). Unos quieren decir: infor-
maci6n, cultural y educaci6n. Otros
prefieren: cultural, educaci6n e infor-
maci6n. Cualquiera que sea el orden,
las tres pueden ser encontradas en
abundancia en las oficinas de
USICA en el edificio redondo
(Edificio Gusromares), esquina de
Federico Boyd y Avenida Balboa.
En la plant baja del edificio se
encuentra la Biblioteca Amador-
Washington. La semana pasada, el
Official de Informaci6n, James C.
Palmer; Oficial de Asuntos Cultura-
les Paul Saxton y el Bibliotecario
Regional Daniel Maratos, estaban
disponibles para conversar sobre el
papel que desempefia la agencia en
Una de 203 instalaciones pareci-
das en 126 paises, la oficina de
USICA en PanamA existe para
promover el mutuo entendimiento
entire PanamA y los Estados Unidos
por medio de varias formas de
comunicaci6n. La biblioteca,'como
un important vehiculo de comuni-
caci6n, es el lugar donde los
panamefios pueden Ilegar y ponerse
en contact con la cultural norteame-
Los letreros en la bibioteca
conducen al lector a aproximada-
mente 8,000 volfmenes, cubriendo
desde tratados de ciencia y tecnolo-
gia hasta el arte. El Sr. Maratos dijo
que el 40 por ciento de estas
publicaciones estan en espafiol.
Desplegados a trav6s de una de las
paredes hay algunos de los 90
peri6dicos norteamericanos suscri-
tos por la biblioteca y gabinetes en la
pared opuesta con audifonos para el
deleite de la colecci6n de discos de la
biblioteca. En otra Area hay una sala
de proyecci6n donde los visitantes
pueden hacer arreglos para ver
selecciones de la biblioteca de
Cuadros por artists locales estAn
en exhibici6n en las paredes de la
Copias del calendario de activida-
des, una lista de las actividades
culturales compilado mensualmente
por USICA, estan disponibles en el
pupitre de referencias. Algunos de
estos events son patrocinados por
USICA. Como sefial6 el Sr. Saxton,
USICA esta continuamente involu-
crado en esfuerzos cooperatives con
organizaciones panamefias para
traer artists norteamericanos a
Panama. En el campo de la misica,

Ada Huerta, estudiante del Colegio Jose Antonio Rem6n Cantera,
recibe ayuda de la bibliotecaria Elia de Garuz, de la Biblioteca Amador-
Washington de USICA. La Sra. de Gardz ha laborado en la biblioteca
durante los tltimos 10 de sus 33 aflos de servicios con USICA.

por ejemplo, la agencia ha laborado
con Jazz Unlimited en el patrocinio
de varies conciertos de jazz, y
actualmente esta haciendo planes
para una presentaci6n por el pianist
de jazz, McCoy Tyner, en septiem-
bre. Los dineros procedentes de
events como estos son utilizados
para un program local de becas de
mfisica. USICA tambi6n patrocina
grupos de bailey y contribute al
financiamiento del Ballet Nacional
de PanamA.
El Sr. Saxton describe a USICA
como un centroo de distribuci6n." La
mayoria de los visitantes que visitan
a la biblioteca diariamente son
estudiantes o acad6micos. De interns
a muchos son los catalogos de las
universidades de E.U.
AdemAs, USICA administra el
Program Fulbright, y actualmente
hay un Profesor Fulbright de
Literature en la Universidad de
PanamA. La agencia hace arreglos
para programs de studio de corto
plazo en E.U., administra el progra-
ma de becas para studios universita-
rios en E.U., y ayuda a poner a
potenciales ganadores de becas en
contact con fundaciones particula-
res. Estudiantes que quieren estudiar
ingl6s en E.U. consiguen informa-
ci6n en USICA.
La biblioteca es apenas uno de los
medios en que USICA compare
informaci6n con Panama. La ma-
quina de teletipo, que segin el Sr.
Parker, pronto serA reemplazada por
una computadora, recibe transmi-
siones de la oficina central de
USICA en Washington y forma la
base para el archiveo inalambrico."
De este archive, se escriben los
despachos de prensa que se circulan

entire los funcionarios del gobierno
de PanamA asi como a los medios
locales y a los empresarios. El
archive tambi6n es la fuente princi-
pal de textos de discursos y
documents importantes, que son
distribuidos por medio del program
INFO de USICA. USICA tambi6n
suministra cortos noticieros y pelicu-
las a las televisoras y distribuye
"Rendezvous Semanal", un progra-
ma de radio semanal de 30 minutes.
La oficina tambi6n envia noticias a la
Voz de la Am6rica.
USICA-Panama es operada por
profesionales panamefios y funcio-
narios del Servicio Extranjero.
Una agencia gubernamental inde-
pendiente, USICA fue establecida en
1953 como la Oficina de Informa-
ci6n de E.U. El nombre fue
cambiado en 1978 para reflejar las
nuevas funciones.
La Biblioteca Amador-Washing-
ton estA abierta al pfblico de 10 a.m.
a 7 p.m., de lunes a vieres con un
bibliotecario para brindar asistencia
al pfblico.
