As occupiers, make effort to build goodwill:
I have been pleased to receive reports from some of my former students that they have had a chance to see some of the classical art and architecture of Italy about which I used to talk to them so much. I hope some of you will also get to see the art and architecture to be found in Greece.
But most of all, I hope that all of you and all Americans “over there” will hold fast to the conviction, which some of you have heard me frequently express, that the way Americans feel toward and act toward the people of occupied countries will have a great deal to do with the kind of peace we shall achieve. God bless you all.
-Professor W.L. Carr
