115 Atyeo to Burton
By the time you get this letter we hope to have given you all the significant part of the Report. It is going along slowly. Our role is a moderating one. The Committee would not stand any new ideas nor a statement of the true facts. However, the Report should be a little better than last year, as the Committee has taken some pains to legalise certain aspects of itself - putting U.N. political officers in the Observation Groups; seeing that their reports come directly to the Committee and not through the Executive Office in Salonika; dissolution of the military affairs committee, etc. etc. The political situation has become quite fluid and there is a possibility that things will move with great speed, especially in relation to Yugoslavia.
