(AP)—Five men charged with dynamiting a Jewish temple in Atlanta are scheduled to go on trial in Fulton Superior Court today. The five are Wallace H. Allen, George Allen Bright, Kenneth Chester Griffin, Robert and Richard Bowling. They have been held in jail without bond since their arrest. The five men were indicted on charges of participating in the dynamiting of the temple Oct. 12. The blast caused damage estimated at $200,000. The structure was empty at the time. given the West six months to make a deal of some kind or get out. But whaH^er the West does it will be acting only in response to a previous Soviet action. And. because the Soviet Union is now strong and has at its side an increasingly strong ally in Red China, the West faces the pros-j jpect of one Soviet move after an-j ! other to smash the whole contain- i ment policy. | There's been a lot of specula-j tion on what Khrushchev is after by this sudden decision on Berlin. Equally significant, if the answer were known, is why he chose this particular time to make his thrust.

The-United States, Britain and France—all with occupation rights in Berlin—are supposed to get together and answer Khrushchev in one voice. What Khrushchev and the rest of tho world are waiting to see is whether the answer shows vitality and imagination, weakness, indecision, or a repetition of old ideas now being challenged by communism. ARTIST'S SKETCH OF SOVIET NUCLEAR POWERED BOMBER — This artist's sketch of a Soviet nuclear powered bomber appears in the current issue of Aviation Week magazine, in connection with an article in which the magazine said Soviet Russia completed a nuclear-powered bomber six months ago and has been flying it in the Moscow area for at least two months. Sketch shows nuclear powerplants suspended from pods midway under delta wing; conventional turbojets with short takeoff afterburner on wingtips, and 195-foot long fuselage to aid in radiation protection for crew.

Business Agent Dave Roe of the j Minneapolis Building Trades Council called off the strike which had been threatened for today after the school board was called into a special meeting Tuesday. | Roe said he felt confident any i action taken by the board Tues- LONDON (AP)^The royal family has denied a newspaper story that Queen Mother Elizabeth has been getting tips on the future from an Irish crystal gazer. The Sunday Pictorial said the soothsayer was Tom Crobett, 41, from Tipperary, who used to do his gazing in night clubs. The story said he regularly visited the Queen Mother's residence, Clarence House,' to read the crystal ball for her. Cause Co Speculate The paper speculated that the 58-year-old Queen Mother wanted to know about Princess Margaret's future, particularly hec marriage prospects. ". . .The story concerning the crystal gazer visiting Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother at Clarence House is untrue," said the 'My Son Was Respectful,' Says Father of Triple Killer By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Special issues including liquor questions are on the ballot at sev- ral Minnesota villages where annual elections take place Tuesday. Scores of communities will conduct elections but in some interest has been light with no one laving filed for any offices. Gone begging ifl some communities are such offices as justice of the peace, constable and councilman. Mayors are bein? elected in some communities while in others ;hey hold over another year. Many villages which formerly voted in December have switched voting to November to coincide with state elections. Only Woman Hibbing, the state's largest village, has no special issues 'on the aallot this- year. Liveliest contest is the race for village trustee. Gladys Gandsey, a school teacher, is seeking re-election to her third term as village trustee. Miss Gandsey is the only woman ever to sit on the Hibbing village council. She is opposed by S. S. "Busty" Christenson, a laundromat operator. 2 Bond Proposals Fertile residents will vote on whether intoxicating liquor sales shall be continued in the village. The community operates a municipal liquor store, both on and off sale. Candidates for various offices are all incumbents. Voters at Whalan, in Fillmore County, also will ballot on a liquor question— whether to establish a village off-sale liquor store. The ballot will be a directive to the village council with final decision resting with that body. Besides chosing councilmen and other officials, Minnesota Lake voters will make decision on two bond proposals— whether to raise $25,000 for construction of a water filtration system and $5,000 for a new well. Sewer bonds are the center of HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) — "I've never spanked him more than once or twice," said the father of Nearvel Moon, 18, charged in a triple slaying. The youth was a respectiful, obedient son. W. V. Moon said. "He always said 'Yes, sir' and 'No, sir.'" "I just don't believe he did it," the father, a welder said. "It doesn't make sense to me." Nearvel told police he robbed bond issue is on the ballot. Dassel voters will decide wheth- denial from Buckingham Palace Royal denials formerly neve were issued and still are ex tremely rare.

Non-Flyer Runs Afoul in Effort to Raise Jet BOSTON (AP)-A civilian who never before piloted a plane was charged today with trying to steal an Air Force jet to fly it to India. Donald L. Lutman, 35, unemployed, of Bound Brook, N.J., was arrested Sunday at Hanscom Air Force Base, Bedford, when he pulled a wrong lever and set off an explosion which knocked the canopy off the jet. FBI agents quoted Lutman as saying he wanted to take the plane to India so he could be at the bedside of Thakur, ailing Hindu religious leader. o Lutman was quoted by the FBI as saying he became a follower of the Hindu religious leader when he was serving in India with the American Field Service during World War II. The FBI said Lutman strode to the plane—a T33 jet trainer—entered the cockpit and then fiddled with the controls in an attempt to get it off the ground. A lever he pulled, the agents said, sent the plane's canopy flying. The Air Force said the same lever was supposed to eject the seat and its occupant but mechanical trouble prevented that, interest at Wells where a $190,000 i thus possibly sparing Lutman's two Houston men and shot them and one man's son Saturday.

Felled by a burst of .22 rifle shots were Bertram J. Appleton, 38; his son Steven, 11; and Lee Hanson, 40. Woman Finds Bodies A young woman in a party of horseback riders, Gail Oillaspy, 17, found the bodies after she and the others followed an armed, masked man through brush coun try when they heard gunfire. Moon told police he hadn't planned to kill anyone but that Appleton suddenly started running and yelling.
