Correspondence of the Associated j Press)—This Bosnian city, scene of the incident which touched off the World War. sits among its minarets and uneasily watches a new war go by. 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 by the conflicting issues which have torn Europe apart. Sarajevo even hears gunfire. Out I In the picturesque hills which sur-: round the old town, detachments of i the Yugoslav army are training— just, in case. There even is a modified blackout, the Serbs being disturbed by warring planes which occasionally blunder over Yugoslavia from the scene 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 wore not enough, the town—which looks like a picture in a book of fairy tales—is passing through a slow but apparently inevitable revo- lu'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 strain on the old social machinery. In crowds which poke around the glittering merchandise in the old bazaar, the Mohammedan women, to be sure, still wear veils. But under at least some of the veils are rouged checks and lips touched up with cosmetics. I learned about it in this pleasant manner: In a street called Yojvode Stcpe Stepanovic, I was startled when addressed in f lawless 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. Slip 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 Eng- i Ush 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." =- . Jury Unearths!

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. J 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.

Another indictment charged conspiracy to restrain the production and importation of dead burned magnesite and magnesite bricks, materials vhe government said were essential in the manufacture of steel and copper, and used for furnaces in steel and copper mills.
