Steinberg, Mason City, reviewed "Men in Motion" by Henry J. Taylor lor the program of the Clear Lake Woman's club at the library clubrooms Tuesday afternoon. The book opens with a scene in the garden of Sir Arthur Tedder, Cairo, Egypt, a few minutes after the airport at which Mr. Taylor, the author, had arrived, was bombed by German stukas. Mrs. Steinberg quoted from the book "The original mistake was made when engineers supplied the world with mechanical inventions but forgot to supply it with new men." Taylor pointed out that he expects great migration from Europe after the war and believes the way to peace is through colonization of Africa which he says has been exploited but never developed. "Germany will not fight to the bitter end," he states, "but will seek another armistice and wait lor her 'destiny.' " Again he said, "The upon peace of a strong Europe depends France and the united efforts of England, France and the United States. America is incomparably better off than the rest at the world for here democracy is working." Mrs. Steinberg also reviewed "A Bell for Adano," the story o American soldiers building an governing a small town in Italy The people needed food, water and restoration of industry bu the loss of an ancient bell taken by Mussolini to make cannon transcended all other woes.
