STErXKOPF SARAJEVO, Yugoslavia—(Cable Correspondence of the Associated p ress )—This Bosnian city, scene of the incident which touched off the! World War, sits among its minarets ann uneasily watches a new war go by. i It is not directly involved in this war. but it certainly knows all the arguments, pro and con, and the ', nervous city is unhappily disturbed j by the conflicting issues which have > torn Europe apart. j Sarajevo even hears gunfire. Out. in the picturesque hills which sur-i round the old to\vn, detachments of' the Yugoslav army are training—; iust in case. There even is a modi- j •tied blackout, the Serbs being dis-| turbed by warring planes which occasionally blunder over Yugoslavia from the scenr of the Greek and Italian operations to the south. Center Of Problems Moreover, Sarajevo is the geographical center of vastly complicated Balkan problems. And if this were not enough, the town—which looks like a picture in a book of fairy tales—is passing through a slow but apparently inevitable revo- Ju'ion of character. Spiritually, it is moving out of the Orient and out of the Middle Ages into modern Europe. The process, of course, is a Urain on the old social machinery. In crowds which poke around the clittering merchandise in the old bazaar, the Mohammedan women, to be sure, still wear veils. But under at least some of the veils ere rouged cheeks and lips touched up with cosmetics. I learned about tt in this pleasant manner: In a street called Vojvode Stepe Stepanovic, I was startled when addressed in flawless German by a veiled woman who might have been 20 or 60. In • one of the quieter coffee houses Into which I was maneuvered adroitly, she threw back her veil. She was a young woman who had been present the day before when I visited a "modern" Mohammedan acquaintance. She had not worn the veil then. She had used a lipstick well and wanted to know all about an English grammar. "But why," I asked, "do you redden your lips and then hide them with a veil?" "Because," she replied, "I thought I might meet you." Which seemed to be about smart an ansv to hear in any of Europe's sophisti- j operation cated capitals. 'nationwide desire for efficient pro-: And this little incident hinted at i( juction for defense. Nazi Activity NEW YORK, Feb. 16_( A p>_ What started as a more or less rou- i tine checkup of reported patent abuses has burgeoned into a full- dress government investigation of asserted German influence on cer- ,n->n c~ • „!.- be san in October 1939. Since then a stream of indictl ments under anti-trust laws has come out of a federal grand jury room here in New York. The investigation has shown, said the depart ment of justice recently, "a startling evidence of German influences in domestic industries essential to national defense." That statement was made in i commenting on the work of the so- called "war industries" grand jury which was discharged a week ago after sitting for seven months The , end of its life did not mean the iwork was ended; the justice department hinted of further develop, ments and a new grand jury prob- 'ably will be called in the sprinc to Continue the investigation along the same general course so far pursued i Tungsten Carbide Glamour ] Heading up the inquiry is Samuel S. Isseks, special assistant to the attorney general, who finds glamour in such subjects as tung- jsten carbide, bentonite, magnesium [A native New Yorker, he studied i under Felix Frankfurter, Supreme Court justice, at. Harvard and got training in investigative work in the office of the U. s. attorney here and on the staff of John Harlan Amen, who's been looking into law enforcement in Brooklyn. When Isseks and his staff first went into action, the significance of the inquiry did not become evident—at least so far as the public was concerned —until the special "war industries" grand jury started work. Several indictments had been returned previously, mostly on antitrust law violation charges, but these did not touch directly on defense. Nor did the special jury's activity become known immediately. Not until August, a month after'it began, was it disclosed that the jury was investigating alleged agreements between German industrial concerns and certain American companies in defense industries. The jury's sign-off was considered WASHINGTON. Feb.

There are no monuments to the revolutionist, Gavrilo Prinzip, the young Serb who shot the Austrian crown prince. Archduke Franz Ferdinand, and the Archduchess Sophie on that fateful June 28, 1914. There is nothing distinctive about his grave, which I was told "is visited only by Americans." His brother still lives in a village near by and is politically quite undistinguished. The little Miljacka river still tumbles swiftly through the town, splashing over low concrete dams. One of the bridges across the stream has been named Prinzip Bridge, and a tablet on the wall of a photo shop there says in the Serb language: "Here was struck the blow" for free Bosnia. But that is all. There ai p no holidays on ncrnunt of Prinzip, and on his bridge now loiter men wearing ithe NRA x x x. pointed Serbian shoes, all day long| "So there certainly filing bucksaws.

Magnesium Is used extensively in airplane construction, since It is capable of giving as much strength as aluminum with one-third less \veight Magnesium also Is used in connection with aluminum production.

Wants Jury Probes Price Decrease Cited Speaking of it as an illustration of the resulLs of the grand jury investigation, Isseks said the price of this metal in 1927 was about 550 a pound, by 1929 it was S475 a pound, and in 1940, before the Indictment was returned, $205 pound. Now, Isseks said, there has been an average decrease of 50 per cent in price: in some isolated cases even more.

Business Is Bad Business is bad, they say, because wood costs too much, and in wartime, Yugoslavia is learning to burn its very soft lignite coal, which jcrees smokes toms soot. My modern Moliammed»n friend In his shop at the edge of the bazaar takes fine silver wire and with a skill which seems superhuman weaves laces of exquisite beauty. He takes his length of stiff lace and places it on a strip of silver, which he then thrusts into a little clay-lined oven which has been heated witn charcoal. At the right moment he pulls it out, and there is the silver and lace fused, with the metal still to be seen as a delicate tracing. Then he makes bracelets which English tourists used to buy. "One of our troubles," he says, j "comes from the fact that more i refugee Jews have come here than I can be absorbed easily in this city of SO.OOO. | "We have almost 11,000 Jews, a! circumstance which leads, to mis-! understandings with the Mohammedan population.
