Abstract: Assume that $ X$ and $ Y$ are compact Hausdorff spaces and that $ C(X)$ and $ C(Y)$ are the Banach spaces of continuous complex-valued functions on $ X$ and $ Y$, respectively. $ L(C(X),C(Y))$ is the space of bounded linear operators from $ C(X)$ to $ C(Y)$. If $ E$ is a Banach space, then $ S(E)$ is the closed unit ball in $ E$. An operator $ T$ in $ S(L(C(X),C(Y)))$ is nice if $ {T^ \ast }(\operatorname{ext} S(C{(Y)^ \ast })) \subset \operatorname{ext} S(C{(X)^ \ast })$. For each $ y \in Y,{\varepsilon _y}$ denotes point mass at $ y$. The main theorem states that if $ T$ is extreme in $ S(L(C(X),C(Y)))$ and $ \vert\vert{T^ \ast }({\varepsilon _y})\vert\vert = 1$ for all $ y \in Y$, then $ T$ is nice. Other theorems are proved by using the same techniques as in the proof of the main theorem.
