"If I were to choose the best vehicle the United States has for relations with the rest of the world I would choose the IESC," said Guillermo Tribaldos III, assistant general manager of a Panama liquor concern which has benefitted from nine IESC projects. "From what we can observe we're sure the (IESC) project will work out with complete success," remarked Francisco Wong Chang, owner of a chain of Panama discount stores and another IESC beneficiary. Local Ownership Stressed Last year U.S. executive volunteers,- mostly retirees from general management, production, personnel, marketing and finance fields, took part in more than 600 projects in 52 countries. Most foreign firms received IESC assistance enjoyed Increased production, efficiency, sales and profits. "We assist only those indus­ tries we feel will be helpful in a country's development," said J. Leonard Lelahd, director of IESC operations in Panama and Costa Rica; Companies requesting IESC help must have,at least 51 per cent local ownership, a growth potential, and management that can profit from IESC assistance and, if possible, be willing to make a token contribution to the cost of the program. In Panama, firms are asked - to contribute $1,000 a year. Leland said, "The firm requesting assistance fills out an application which is used for recruiting the executive in New York. Biographical data on a volunteer is sent to the field Office from New York and the field office then decides whether this is the right man for the job." Rockefeller idea The foreign firm pays the executive's plane fare and a per diem in accord with the prevailing'cost of living in the country. The executive's tour averages about three months. The IESC is based on an idea put forward by David Rockefeller, of the Chase Manhattan Bank, at the International Management Congress in 1963. that Its first overseas project was launched in Panama in 1965. Among Panama's quota of 35 projects this year are the following: Traffic Court: Five persons, were fined Saturday in Traffic Division of Knox County Circuit Court. Fined were Clifford H.
