The ad shop of deYong Ginsberg Weisman Bailey isn't worried. In fact, it's happy. That's because at the Orange County AdClub AdAwards earlier this month, the Irvine agency looked like the Bobby McFerrin of advertising. The 26-person agency swept the show, walking off with four gold, 12 silver and 38 merit awards--almost twice as many as the second-biggest winner. The shop got its start in 1975 as Reiser Williams deYong.

The executive vice president of the award-winning Irvine ad agency will take on a role akin to permanent consultant and a tongue-in-cheek title of chairman emeritus. deYong said he plans to travel to Central America, build a home in Dana Point, learn to golf and chip away at a list of about 50 things he's always wanted to do.

dGWB has laid off six people in a corporate restructuring, said Jim deYong, the advertising agency's executive vice president. He said two of the positions will be restored when the restructuring is complete. DeYong said the agency, which is one of the largest independents in Orange County, is moving away from high-tech accounts and toward consumer products. The agency handles El Pollo Loco restaurants, Shimano bicycling and fishing equipment and Thermidor.

DeYong Ginsberg Weisman Bailey Advertising of Irvine, one of Orange County's largest agencies, is not letting the recession slow it down. The agency just opened a new wing in its Executive Park building and added five people to its 40-member agency. The company's steady growth is remarkable considering that nearly a third of the 11,000 jobs in the industry in Orange County fell victim last year to the recession.

The Orange County Ad Club's 1988 honors were virtually swept by a 6-week-old shop. And nobody complained. That's because Irvine-based deYong Ginsberg Weisman Bailey --which hauled away 16 awards last week--has won carloads of Ad Club awards before in its other incarnations. The agency, which was founded in 1975, was bought out last year by the national firm of N W Ayer. But seven months later, Ayer axed the Irvine office, so the principals regrouped into a brand new shop early this year.

Performance-based considerations are increasingly taking the place of year-end bonuses as employers across the United States decide who's been naughty or nice at holiday time. Although a boss who substitutes an incentive program for the traditional holiday bonus risks being called a Scrooge, the trend actually reflects the Santa Claus principle of rewarding good--i.e., productive, behavior--says consultant Paul Muller.

One month after N W Ayer announced that it will shut down most Orange County operations, five clients of the New York-based advertising firm said they will move their accounts to an agency to be started by four current and former Ayer executives. Jim deYong and Dan Ginsberg, former executives of the Ayer Pacific division, Michael Weisman, general manager of Ayer-Irvine operations, and Cheryl Bailey, a member of the Irvine creative staff, plan to open an agency in Tustin on Jan.

We citizens of the United States of America have plenty of excuses for calling ourselves Americans, thus arrogating to ourselves the name of two continents. In raising the question recently, teacher Albert H. Clodius pointed out that some of his Latin American students resent the definitive use of America by our state, ignoring the fact that many other independent republics are just as American. S. C. M.

Donald should be so popular. From coast to coast people are clamoring for shirts, hats and key chains depicting the Mighty Ducks--the National Hockey League's new bird on the block. And that's even before the team skates onto the ice for its long-anticipated season debut tonight. "People love these Ducks," said James McFarland, a salesman at Gerry Cosby's sporting goods store next to Madison Square Garden in New York City. "I can't keep any Duck merchandise on the shelf.
