"You have to sell yourself," said Stephen W. Baldanza, public affairs officer at the USIS office here. "No other country it going to do it for you." The U.S. Information Agency (USIA), parent agency for the USIS offices, has $183 million to spend in fiscal 1971 and is spending it on packaging Ameri­ ca — in books, movies, radio and television programs, exhibits, English lessons, study tours, concerts and lectures, among other things. The most fertile area for USIS in Portugal is television, which is still a relatively new phenomenon. "We can place one of our films — usually a travelogue sort of thing — on TV here and be reasonably sure 5 million people will see it," Baldanza said. "The Portuguese are in the stage now where they watch everything that comes on the screen, the way we were back in the States around 1950." USIS also runs a library here that each day draws an average of 300 Portuguese visitors, many of them students, with a cross- section of books and magazines, almost all of them in English. Although Baldanza acknowledges that he complied with a 1969 directive from Frank Shakespeare, President Nixon's appointee as USIA chief, to "balance" USIS libraries by adding political conservative books, the Lisbon library still has more books by John Kenneth Galbraith than by William Buckley and books about or by Lyndon Johnson outnumber those about or by President Nixon 104.

Times Herald, Carroll, la. 1 O Wednesday, Nov. 25, 1970 1 In Portugal, where Baldanza has been stationed for four years, the USIS job was a thankless one until 1968, when long-time dictator Antonio Salazar became ill and was replaced by Marcelo Caetano as prime minister. Salazar had maintained his country in a low-key anti-American pout because he was irked by American refusal to support Portugal when India grabbed the old Portuguese colony of Goa and when the Portuguese became involved in fighting black nationalists in their African colonies. Caetano's policies over the last two years, however, have opened things up for USIS in particular and Americans in general. U.S. tourists are being courted, so much so that TWA has opened 747 service to Lisbon and is drumming up a see- Portugal campaign. The Portuguese have instituted English as a mandatory language in their schools. And people here are beginning to show more interest in America. "Portugal is awakening, wanting to be part of the world picture," Baldanza says. "So people are starting to come to us, where be­ fore we had to go to them. They're coming to us for books and even with questions about things like how our unions and press system work." The Portuguese showed special interest in American moon explorations, Baldanza said, and they're now beginning to be concerned with pollution problems. But there is still a residue of misinformation about the United States that the Portuguese gleaned from cowboy and gangster movies, American TV shows, and press reports — slanted and otherwise — about U.S. problems with race, drugs, crime and young people. "Our job is to present the other side of America," Baldanza said. "Propaganda is a loaded word, so we try to correct the image other people have of us." Baldanza has been correcting images for 29 years — in Brazil, Afghanistan, Israel, Congo (Leopoldville) and Ethiopia before Portugal — which makes his career longer than the life of USIA, which was formed in 1953 to combine overseas propaganda activities that had previously been under various agencies. Baldanra is one of only two USIS Americans in Lisbon in an operation that includes 14 Portuguese and an over-all budget of $80,000. It is not, he admitted, "what you would call a high priority installation." But he still thinks it's a necessary and rewarding job. "We Americans too often think that everybody in the world is our friend," he said. "It's not true." when it's cheaper.
