Mr. E. C. Daniels, Assistant Manager of the New York Times (1958):
“If there is left in the world any hope whatsoever that man can live in peace, despite the terrible weapons they have created to destroy each other, that hope lies in a better understanding among peoples. Understanding isn’t possible without extensive personal contacts. Personal contact can only be made by traveling.”
