Abstract: It is shown in this note that every ``mild'' self mapping $ f:X \to X$ of a compact Hausdorff space $ X$ into itself can be represented by the product $ (Y,g) \times (Z,h)$ of two self mappings $ g$ and $ h$, where $ g$ is a contraction $ (\bigcap\nolimits_1^\infty {{g^n}(Y) = {\text{singleton}}} )$ and $ h$ is a homeomorphism of $ Z$ onto itself. Endowing the set of all selfmappings $ {X^X}$ with the compact-open topology, the qualifier ``mild'' means that the closure of the family $ \{ {f^n}\vert n \geqq 1\} \subset {X^X}$ is compact. In case $ X$ is metrizable, some results of M. Edelstein and J. de Groot are used to linearize $ (X,f)$ in the separable Hilbert space.
