Godfrey rose to become administrator of the biggest business of its kind in the world. A career public servant, he is administrator of the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service of the U.S. Department of Ag- riculture. Except for a tour of duty with the Air Force, he has been an employee of the Department of Agriculture since 1934. A hallmark of his serv- ice has been his enthusi- asm for employee devel- opment. He has shown an un- usual ability to create ways in which perma- nent and part-time work- ers could further their careers. In 1958 he initiated the nation's first ASCS state-wide educational training school for ASCS county personnel. During the past six years Mr. Godfrey has been a key person not only in the administra- tive direction, but in the d ex- presentation a n planation of farm programs to the Congress and the public. His contributions at the national level can best be measured by the fundamental improvement that has taken place in the food-agriculture economy. Under his direct supervision, the vital commodity pro- grams have increased farm income to the highest gross level in history and the highest net in almost 20 years. the point They have succeeded in balancing supplies where grains are no longer in surplus and cotton stocks will be down by a fourth at the end of this marketing year. Under his direction, ASCS programs and policies have helped to bring U.S. agricultural exports to the highest level in history in terms both of volume and dollar sales. His influence also extends to the international scene. For three years he served as chairman of the Standing Com- mittee of the International Cotton Advisory Committee. He has been a trusted advisor to the secretary of agriculture on international matters. . a man who has done so much to help create a brighter future for the farmers and consumers of America." -ORVILLE FREEMAN THE ONLY woman physician to head a major medical pro- gram in the Department of Medicine and Surgery of the Veterans Administration is Dr Marjorie J. Williams. She has been direc- tor of the Pathology and Allied Sciences Service since 1963. In the past three years she has revitalized the VA laboratory serv- ice; established a coun- cil of leading patholo- gists to advise the agency; and strengthen- ed VA relations with medical schools and or- ganizations. She is chairman of the Inter-Agency Com- mittee on Laboratory Medicine - which she organized; consultant to a number of federal agencies; and has pub- lished many scientific articles. As chief of labora- tory service for more Wil- D r. than 10 years, liams provided the VA hospital at Temple, Texas, with out- standing servic?. In 1962 she was appointed deputy director of the service she now heads. Dr. Williams has contributed significantly to the medical program of the Veterans Administration. She has been active in medical programs throughout the federal government and in her profession, both nationally and internationally. In her current job, Dr. Williams directs the activities of 195 laboratories employing a staff of 3,400, including 320 pathologists. During the past decade, laboratory workloads have with creased 100 percent. In her long range plans cope the workload, Dr. Williams has revitalized the laboratory service. Through her knowledge of the problem-and her skill in presenting it-she was able to obtain expansion con- cessions both from the agency and the Bureau of the Budget. The quality of the VA medical program depends greatly on cooperation with the medical schools. She has established excellent relations with the various departments. She also has secured their help in staffing laboratories and giving special educational courses. . she is without a doubt a distinguished physician, scientist, administrator and homemaker, in a very rare com- bination." -W.

Brownstein has brought increased effectiveness and efficiency to many government programs. In 1935 he joined the Federal Housing Administration as an assistant truck driver. He worked his way through th e ranks, serving as clerk, audit supervisor, and attorney. During World War II he served with the Ma- rines. In 1946 he joined the Veterans Administra- tion as a loan guaranty agent. He helped launch the G.I. loan program and was responsible for a collection policy for the program. By 1958 he was named director of VA's Loan Guaranty Service. He was able to improve the service to the veteran while cutting the cost to the government. In 1961 he became the chief benefits director. In this job he was re- sponsible for compensa- tion and pensions, reha- bilitation, loan guaranty, vocational training and education. It was in this capacity that he broadened the use of automatic data processing equipment to provide more effi- cient and faster service to veterans. He returned to the Federal Housing Administration in 1963 when he was appointed FHA commissioner. He has worked consistently since that time to improve the level of service provided by his agency. This philosophy will continue to serve him well as assistant secretary-commissioner in the Department of Hous- ing and Urban Development. Monuments to the success of his leadership can be found throughout the nation. He developed an honors award pro- gram to recognize excellence in residential design. He has initiated rehabilitation programs for housing in blighted areas. His government career has ? been one of contribution, dedication, accomplishment and service. His many pro- cedural reforms and innovations have resulted in savings of several millions of dollars, while providing better service to the public. "Thank you for your recognition of the practical signifi- cance of beauty, and for the procedures you are establishing to emphasize it in the activities of FHA." -LADY BIRD JOHNSON TWO MAJOR federal social security programs have been organized and directed by Arthur E. Hess. First was the disability insurance program in 1955. Next was the new h lth ea insurance pro- gram which went into effect in 1965. Both are complex programs. Each involved intricate liaison between government and profes- sional health personnel and associations. The skill with which he developed this liaison is paying dividends in the success of the Medi- care program. These major accom- plishments have high- lighted a federal career which began in 1939 when Hess was just out of PriQceton. The social security program, then in its in- fancy, captured his im- agination and made him anxious to make some contribution to its suc- cess. This was the seed from which has sprung a government career of more than 27 years in the social security program. With the passage of the disability insurance legislation. in 1954, Hess was named top executive in the Division of Dis- ability Operations. Within months he had the mammoth operation working smoothly. Under his leadership the government negotiated 56 agreements with all of the states and territories. He provided vigorous leadership in the major effort to get key people in each of the states oriented toward making the disability program part of their own operations. Within six months after applications first eoul4` be ac- cepted, the Bureau's district offices had received'. 143,000 applications. The program has grown tremendously. ' In 1965, Hess was called upon to'organize the task force to do the preliminary planning for the Medicare program. He brought his skill at inter-government relationships into play and ironed out all difficulties in getting states to meet ad- ministrative and fiscal responsibilities. Hess-has had a career marked by many outstanding achievements and by notable contributions to the nation. " .. much of the success that the disability program has enjoyed is directly attributable to his splendid leadership." -JOHN W.

Barbara White, associate director of the U.S. Information Agency, is richly endowed w i t h both. She has served with distinction at posts both in the United States and abroad. Miss White joined the government in 1942. She entered the newly- created Office of War Information as a re- search analyst. This was a new and untried field of endeavor for the gov- ermnent. Miss White's ability to project new ideas and programs was recognized from the very start. In 1944 she was as- signed to one of the im- portant overseas offices in Cairo. The record she made in this assignment won her a State Depart- ment job when hostilities ceased in 1946. She was assigned as a regional specialist in the Department. In 1947 she left the government temporarily to become program secretary for the League of Women Voters. She rejoined the government in 1951 and was assigned to the U.S. Information Service in Rome as Cultural Affairs Assistant,. She had a key role in planning program content. In 1956 she was moved to Turin, Italy, as the Branch Public Affairs Officer. Despite Latin resistance to a woman runr.ing an office, she did an outstanding job. In 1958 she was transferred to Washington where she served as Desk Officer for Italy, Spain and Portugal and later as Cultural Affairs Planning Officer. In this latter position she developed plans for the Agency's work in the cultural field, and perhaps mad- her most valued contribution to the government. From 1962 to 1965 she served as Public Affairs Officer in Santiago, Chile. As in Italy, she again was able to over. come Latin resistance to women officials. In 1966 she was appointed associate director of the Agency for Policy and Research. This is the number two job in the Agency's Career Foreign Service. It also is the highest ranking job ever held by a woman in the organization. " . , one of those rare individuals who, although possess- ing talents in abundance, remains a warm human being able to inspire friendship, respect and cooperation." -LEONARD H. MARKS REVOLUTIONARY breakthroughs in the frontiers of flight are credited to Dr. Thompson, director of the NASA Langley Research Center. His vision in anticipating research requirements has pro- vided some of the most advanced research facili- ties in the nation. He began his career as a junior aeronautical engineer in 1926 with the Langley Memorial Aeronautical Laboratory. From 1926 to 1943 he was engaged in per- forming and supervising flight research projects. One of his major achieve- ments was the develop- ment of a basic pattern of specifications for han- dling qualities of air- craft. In 1943 he was ap- pointed assistant chief of research, a newly-created position in the Langley Lab which by then had grown to 2,200 em- In this capacity ployees - he developed ways to acquire data on speeds up to and be- yond the speed of sound. The wind tunnel design concept was developed under his leadership, providing controlled lab experiments in transonic flight. For 15 years, until 1960, he filled the key technical position at Langley. His skills and talents helped develop many of the concepts which put the U.S. into the space age. For the last six and one-half years he has been director of the NASA Langley Research Center. Dr. Thompson has been particularly effective in fore- seeing research needs for the national space and aeronautical programs. He has always been keenly aware of the need for the proper tools for advanced research, and of the rapid ob- solescence of research facilities. Consequently, under his expert guidance, the Langley Research Center is one of the nation's foremost leaders in aeronautical and space research. Within the aerospace profession, his ability is widely recognized. He and his staff are continually consulted on scientific matters by military services, other agencies and representatives of foreign governments. 11. . - his astute organizational ability is borne out by his organization of a research staff which had made historic contributions in the realm of aerospace flight.' -ROBERT C.

These qualities h a v e served him well within three different agencies. His career span s service in the Office of Price Administration, the the Veterans Administra- tion, and the Internal Revenue Service. He advanced from a grade of P-2 in Decem- ber 1945 to GS-15 as area field director with the VA in July 1958. In the following eight years the Internal Revenue Serv- ice promoted him from GS-15 ultimately to dep- u t y commissioner on June 7, 1966. In his role as "sec- ond man" in the IRS, he is responsible for the ef- fective performance of all operations in the serv- ice. He also assists the commissioner in giving executive leadership to all the Serv- ice's functions and activities. As director of the Systems Development Division, he was responsible for design of an automatic data processing system for maintenance of tax accounts. This represents a milestone in the history of the Internal Revenue Service and is a testimonial to Smith's leadership and imagination. A saving of five and one-half million dollars a year was made possible by action of the Committee on Resources Utilization while he was committee chairman. The excellence of his work has been recognized on many occasions. In 1960 he shared in a group award for the devel- opment of the IRS automatic data processing system. In 1963 he was given the Commissioner's Award for his role in achieving economies in tax administration. In 1966 he was presented the Secretary's Meritorious Service Honor Award for the quality of his work, his personal integrity and his dedication to public service. Many of these awards stemmed from leadership of team efforts. His skill in inspiring his subordinates made the achievements possible. " .. exemplifies the finest characteristics of the career service and meets in every respect the selection criteria for this high award." SINCE 1963 Donald G. MacDonald has served with distinc- tion as the mission director of three of the largest and most important AID missions in the world: Pakistan, Nigeria, and no Vi t w e nam live recora of perform- ance with AID and pred- ecessor agencies. lie has gained valuable insight into AID problems through his work as sec. retary of the agency for two years. He also spent four years in Turkey as chief of the Public Serv- ices Division and assist- ant to the director. After assuming his first directorship in Pak- istan, he was credited with running one of the best-managed missions in the world. He has an outstand- ing record as a negoti- ator. He has been suc- cessful in gaining the confidence of senior lead. ers of many foreign areas. This has made it possible for him to exert considerable influence in the economic policies of those nations. In Pakistan, for example, he directed an AID effort which was largely instrumental in placing the Pakistan eco- nomic development program in the forefront among develop- ing nations. In addition to his leadership abilities, he has won a repu- tation for fairness and depth of view. He has used wisdom, discernment and sensitivity in making hard decisions on necessary cutbacks and phasing out of certain programs. During MacDonald's tenure as mission director in Pak- istan, the mission was awarded a unit Distinguished Public Service Award-the highest award it is possible for the agency to bestow. He won added recognition in 1955 for his role in the development of the agency-wide system known as "Operations Blueprint." Before entering government service in 1950, he was an instructor in the Department of Political Science at Princeton. He also acted as a consultant to various federal and state agencies including the Office of Education. " .. has served with distinction in a steady career pro- gression culminating in his assignment as the director of the largest U.S. AID mission in the world." -WILLIAM S.

It is the center of the Civil Service Com- mission activity in research, policy development and leader- ship in government-wide personnel programs. Recommendations for legislation on personnel matter often begin in the Bureau. Instruction- al material, workable regulations and stand- ards all take shape in his office. In short, his is the office in which the federal personnel system is geared to meet the needs of modern tech- nology and concepts of management. Major improvements in policy have come about under his guid- ance.

Dr. Stahl's staff leadership had an important role in the development of federal salary reform. The reforms provided in 1962 paved the way toward ultimate comparability in federal pay. The federal merit promotion program has been improved because of Dr: Stahl's ability to strike a fine balance between the flexibility needed by management and the equity deserved by the employees- The Government Employees Training Act controls vari- ous plans designed to improve government service and employee chances for advancement. Dr. Stahl's direct per- sonal involvement with this program was largely responsible for the many and varied developmental opportunities avail- able to federal managers and employees- He received the Civil Service Commissioners' Award for Distinguished Service in 1960 and the Stockberger Award in 1961.

MACY JR THE ACHIEVEMENTS of David D. Thomas span a govern- ment career of 29 years. The excellence of that service is demonstrated by his record of progression from an assistant Airways Traffic Con- troller to the position of deputy FAA administra- tor. Many honors and recognitions have come to him during his career. He has received the President's Award for Exceptional Civil Serv- ice, the Rockefeller Pub- lic Service Award, and the Laura Taber Barbour air safety award. His aviation career in federal service dates back to 1938 when he en- tered on duty as a con- troller in the Pittsburgh Airways Control Center. He served in positions of increasing responsibility until 1946 when he was put in charge of the Civil Aeronautics Administra- tion's International Serv- ices for three and one-half years. By 1956, he had become director of the Air Traffic Service in the CAA. In 1963 he was appointed to the newly-created position of Associate Administrator for Programs for the Federal Aviation Agency. In that post he had direct responsibility for determining the allocation and utilization of airspace and the regulation of flight operations. In his many capacities he has played a major role in establishing and maintaining the environment in which the entire aeronautical and air transport industry thrives in the United States. During the past two decades a 15-fold increase in safety was achieved giving the U.S. air carriers a safety record un- surpassed in the history of aviation. During the same period, a flight across the continent was changed from a bumpy, six-stop affair to a five-hour non-stop jet cruise. The growth of the air transport business in the same period has been equally impressive with a 20 percent increase each year.

But there's much more to the story. Their successes, adven- tures, rewards, satisfactions -though admittedly not typical-are shared by hundreds of thousands of other public employees. And more than nine million people who staff national, state and local government share these rewards today in every kind of occupation. They range from man- aging and manning thousands of so- cial services to the frontiers of space. of the National Civil Service League's Career Serv- ice Awards, inaugurated in 1955, represent the best in the public serv- ice. The exciting frontiers of yester- year may be swiftly vanishing with the buffalo, yet new ones continue to beckon the courageous on to in- triguing pursuits. In urban America, on the farms, and in the nation's wel- fare services; in helping developing nations or the U. S. taxpayer, these ten modern pioneers are engaged in ventures that pale past progress. In the management of manpower, or- ganization of our airways, and the conquest of space; in communicating with mankind around the world and in medical research for today's emer- gencies or tomorrow's needs, the Career Service Awardees have built their careers on dedication, excel- lence, public service. with capable, devoted as- sociates in challenging milieus, com- petent career people in government enjoy a sense of intellectual and spiritual stimulation, satisfaction, and fulfillment in serving people.

Civil Service Commission The primary objective of the Federal civil service is to achieve and maintain a Government work force of the high quality exemplified by the recipients of the National Civil Service League's Career Service Awards. The purpose of the Civil Service Act and the merit system it created was to provide continuity as well as competence in Government service, and the careers of these out- standing public servants show that that purpose can be achieved. Within the last few years there has been increased emphasis on excellence in the Federal Government service. This emphasis takes on added urgency in the context of today's world. President Johnson said in his Budget Message of January 24, 1967: "This nation can, and I believe it must, continue to move forward in de- fense of freedom against aggression; in the search for international peace and cooperation; and in the effort to improve the quality of American life." Civilian employees of the Government are deeply involved in each of these efforts: in supporting the mili- tary action in Vietnam and helping the citizens of that unhappy land to build a viable economy for peace; in diplomatic, informational, and economic efforts to pro- mote peace around the world; in the implementation oan unprecedented number of forward-looking programs which promise to enrich the quality of life, the justice, and the opportunity offered by American society. In pursuing these goals, it is not enough to pass laws. Every law must be competently executed if the program is to succeed-executed by civil servants of the highest Approved For Release 2002/01/08 : CIA-RDP84-00313R000200220001-5 Approved For 4 ease 2002/01/08: CIA-RDP84-003136 0200220001-5 ability. We are obligated to assure effective and eco- nomical management of governmental programs, both old and new. And now, more than ever in the past, we are obligated to maintain close and harmonious working relationships with State, county, and local governments -our partners in a new and creative federalism. The President has emphasized that federalism is not a one-sided partnership. On the contrary, our task now is to improve Federal programs and administration while we do more to help State and local governments strengthen their machinery for planning and management. Capable personnel are essential for effective service to the pub- lic at the State and local level, no less than at the national level. President Johnson has recommended, and the Civil Service Commission has submitted to Congress, legisla- tion to provide financial and technical assistance to strengthen State and local personnel management and to permit interchange of personnel between the Federal Government and State and local governments. Heavy and increasing demands upon the Federal Gov- ernment and its civilian personnel, as they support the military effort overseas and the battle to improve the quality of American life at home, cannot be permitted to bring about an uncontrolled rise in costs. In the same budget message quoted above, the President said: "We will continue to offset a significant part of increased costs of important new programs by increasing effi- ciency throughout the Federal Government. Savings from this source have been substantial ... I have made it clear to the heads of all Departments and Agencies that they are to continue their emphasis on cost reduc- tion during the coming year." The challenge of increasing demands for results with increased economy is very real in the Federal service today. Such a challenge does not reduce the need for high-quality recruits, nor does it reduce the advancement opportunities for competent and ambitious employees. Rather, it increases them, and our "quest for quality" continues unabated. We know that our goals can be met only if we employ the most talented and energetic people we can find, and develop each employee's potential ability to the highest degree, to assure the best utilization of human resources in serving the public interest. Under the Federal merit system all citizens may compete on equal terms for Government employment. Absolutely no discrimination on the basis of politics, race, sex, religion, national origin, or physical handicap is tolerated in the Federal civil service. The merit principle controls not only open competition and selection for appoint- ment, but opportunities for training, career develop- ment, and promotion as well. In Government service, competent and well-prepared young men and women will find work that is always interesting and often exciting, that makes use of their talents and training, and that provides room for advance- ment and rewards for excellence. They will find work that matters, that serves some real purpose in the world. They will find top-quality leaders, and competent, stim- ulating associates; and they will find fair treatment without favoritism or prejudice, good pay equitably assigned, enlightened employee-management relations, and modern-day financial benefits. But the strongest attraction of Government service is not these fundamentals of a good personnel system, important as they are. It is the significance of the work itself, and above all, the sense of personal worth and personal satisfaction that comes from contributing di- rectly to the strength of our Government and the welfare of all Americans. This is one of the most valuable com- pensations of Federal service-one to which no mone- tary price-tag can he assigned. Yet many successful career men and women, expressing the same thought in various terms, tell me that this is the one form of com- pensation that counts the most. It is offered to such a degree by no other field of employment. There are indeed new challenges in today's Federal service. There are also great rewards.

This "image" of government service had suffered from citizen apathy toward government, from the seemingly ingrained Ameri- can hostility to government bureau- cracies, and from the rigidities of civil service that had come about. Thus, the League inaugurated its now fa- mous Career Service Awards program to promote quality in the public serv- ice by honoring outstanding career employees. In 1963, the League again examined itself. And it found itself ill-equipped for the critically important tasks with which it was confronted. Government -employing 15% of the work force and spending over fifty billions of dollars annually on direct, nonmili- tary payrolls-had become the largest "industry" in our society and its pervasive influence was such that a strong vehicle to enable closer citi- h zens' participation and concern wit overnmental efficiency was needed.

Kennedy Space Center (Florida) National Aeronautics and Space Administration MARSHALL GREEN Assistant Secretary of State (Designate) Department of State Approved Y. BYgI g an220001-5 bT Utawbr Edward J. Bloch is not only a top engineer but a superb administrator as well. This valuable "mix" of abilities has ensured his successful 4 performance with the Army Engineers, where he started in 1931, and with the Manhattan District-the wartime precursor of the AEC. Having progressed steadily along with the growth of AEC, Mr. Bloch now serves--in es- sence-as an executive vice president for the commission. His colleagues testify to his many outstanding traits, but they especially appre- ciate his unique capacity to operate ably un- der tension and pressure. More than 20 years distinguished service in Treasury as a top government lawyer preceded John K. Carlock's promotion in 1962 to his present post. An Arizonian, Mr. Carlock first . came to government as a law clerk. In his pres- ent assignment, he has presented dramatic evidence of his ability to elicit top perform- ance from his staff. In the three Fiscal Service -bureaus u'ncler his? aegis-, substantially- de- creased staffs have actually handled an im- mense upsurge of workload items and other new functions. A thoroughgoing devotion to excellent per- formance in a wide variety of assignments has marked the brilliant government career of Millard Cass. After conducting a private law practice, Mr. Cass in 1941 joined the Se- curities and Exchange Commission, moving from there to the National Labor Relations Board. In 1946 he began his career with Labor as Assistant to the Assistant Secretary of Labor. Subsequently, he has served as the topranking civil servant with several Secre- taries of Labor- The development of Complex 39-the install- ation from which the Apollo program launches take place-is the crowning achievement of Dr. Kurt H. Debus' career. His leadership was pivotal in both the design and construction of the famed Apollo launch complex. Further, he has been responsible for many of the tech- nical advances in launch technology, and for the formation of the government/industry launch team which has carried out more than 150 successful launches, including several ---nota-bie firsts-. Dr. Debus entered-tJ-govern- ment service in 1946. in a career of 25 years with Foreign Service, in posts ranging from Wellington to Stockholm to Seoul to Hong Kong to Djakarta, Marshall Green has unfailingly demonstrated those qualities of courage, integrity and talent which are so vital to the public service-whether domestic or foreign. The fact that he has served in Indonesia with distinction during a period (1965 to 1969) of great stress in that country 4 speaks eloquently for his superior qualities. He is presently Assistant Secretary of State designate for East Asian and Pacific Affairs. Raymond A. loanes is a distinguished product of the career civil service. From his first rating as a GS-3 trainee with Agriculture, he has moved steadily to a leadership position as an expert in international agriculture. Promotions bearing ever greater responsibility and pres- tige have taken him to posts in the field of food supply management, including a tour as chief of food rationing with military govern- ment in Germany. As head of the FAS, he has played a key role in upping U.S. agricultural exports, from 3.1. billion to above 6.0 in each of the past five years. Irving J. Lewis has brought to his federal serv- ice a brilliance of intellect and superior man- agerial talents. He has used these qualities in 26 years of top assignments which also called on his versatility and his commitment to so- cial justice. Lewis' co-workers, from both Civil Service and Foreign Service days, praise his 10work in public administration, program anal- ysis and public policy development in trans- portation, economic regulation, foreign af- fairs, health and welfare. He earned his pres- ent post by helping to shape the laws, the budgets, the organization for the vastly ex- panded delivery of federal health care. Joseph J. Liebling is justly famed for his skill in the controversial field of security. He has repeatedly sought and found a harmonious balance between maintaining the govern- ment's security interests, while at the same time protecting the individual's constitutional rights. Associates, both in and out of govern- ment, speak highly of his sturdy fairness and honesty. They applaud his ability to commu- nicate with non-governmental groups. Gov- ernment, economics and international law have been his fields of expertise brought to his 27-year government career which he started with the War Department as an assist- ant messenger. Ensuring that Americans will enjoy safe, ef- ficient and advanced air transportation has been George S. Moore's mission since he joined the CAA in 1945. He has built an ex- traordinary record in the development of up to date methods of evaluation of aircraft air- worthiness. He is known for evolving new concepts in accident prevention and investi- gation. His list of achievements is all the more 110. striking in view of the fact that it was compiled .at a time of fantastic growth. in_the aviation_ field. Col. Lawrence K. White "retired" in 1947 to the Central Intelligence Group after his out- standing Army career came to a close when he was wounded in action. He has given two careers and 40 years to government service. The Group became the CIA, and Col. White led in the development of the worldwide peacetime intelligence service His mana- gerial and creative talents were particularly required in the setting up of this first central intelligence organization in American history. In subsequent years, Col. White has served as a key figure in the administration of this far- flung organization. ,~Tttand 15th CAREER SERVICE AWARDS BANQUET AND DANCE RENT MiV Washington-Hilton Hotel, Friday, June 13, 1969 National Civil Service League 1028 Connecticut Ave., N.

Clearly. in this era we cannot expect government to cope if it must depend on a shoddy staff with low morale and even lower responsiveness to the public it serves. Fortunately. it does not have to. For, as the National Civil Service League knows, government is served by thousands upon thousands of highly Competent public employees who like the challenge and variety of public service. . At the same time, the League knows that these employees need encouragement which a citizen group - such as the League-can provide. The League is aware. as well, of the many other public service goals it can help achieve. So, since 1955 the League has presented its colorful Career Service Awards Program to. ? recognize career public employees for significant contributions ? encourage excellence in government service ? promote public appreciation of quality In government ? stimulate able young people to build government Careers Yearly. the League picks ten representative career public servants to honor at a gala Awards Banquet and Dance. These winners receive a citation, a gold watch and $1,000 tax tree. Business firms. organizations, individuals interested in a quality public service sponsor this program. They join the President of the United States, cabinet officers, legislators, government officials and others to laud the Awardees. The world press reports this colorful occasion. THE NATIONAL CIVIL SERVICE LEAGUE is a nonpartisan, nonprofit citizens' or- ganization founded in 1881 to promote ef- ficiency in federal, state and local govern- ment. Its publications and action program of research-education-counselling-advisory services represent the citizens in promoting improvement of public management. It is supported by tax-deductible gifts from citi- zens, organizations, corporations and foun- dations who are concerned with the quality of public administration in our society.
