V. RECOMENDATIONS
These recommendations are based on the premise that the America
Houses should be, to the extent possible, outlets for ali Public
Affairs activities in their geographic areas. This means that the
America House directors are in fact assistant Public Affairs officers.
As personnel available to the Public Affeirs program decreases, the
work in the field will increasingly fell to the America House direc-
tors.  Consequently, even though specialized staff of the regional
offices, such as exchanges and information officers, have direct
responsibilities, the America House directors should be acquainted
with all work being done in their respective areas and, to the extent
possible, should be delegated specific responsibilities.
These recomendations are further based on the basic concept
that the pgraming should be devoted to:
1. a pnesentation of the United States in a true and proper
light,
2. the raising of American prestige,
3. the iupleentation of United States foreign policy.
