And Bernie Cohen, Ifi, of Valley About, one in every four of the Stream, N. Y., adds: "Many peo- younRsters say they read two books! a month — books other than tho^e assigned at school. About the same number, however, say they read for pleasure only when they have time between school assignments. The favorite reading matter is adventure stories, although biographies rank almost as high. Also popular arc historical novels, romance fiction, mysteries and science fiction. Undoubtedly as a result of the recent developments in space technology, science fiction is gaining new popularity. In a poll taken a year ago, we found that only 9 per cent listed this category as their favorite. The barometer has since risen to 20 per cent.

About how often do you read a book for pleasure — o'ne that hasn't been assigned to you in school? What are your favorite type books? Would you rather watch TV, see a movie, or read a book? Do you usually read books especially written for young people, best sellers, or books strictly for adults? What are some of the books you have read in the last six months?

B.V [,KON DENNEN NEW YORK — (NBA) - There are increasing signs that under cover of the Berlin crisis Nikita Khrushchev is preparing to stage a "show trial" of his ousted rivals that might overshadow even the purges of Joseph Stalin. It is still unknown whether the "trial" of ex-Presidium members Vyacheslav Molotov, Georgi Mai- cnkov and Marshal Georgi Zhukov will precede or follow the special Communist Party congress scheduled to meet on Jan. 27 in Moscow. The consensus of Western intelligence sources in Russia is that the Soviet Premier is preparing feverishly for the knockout blow. The fuel that Khrushchev has had to call a special congress one year ahead of schedule is seen as evidence that he is racing against lime. Khrushchev, who loves proverbs, obviously believes that "he who loses his nerve may also lose his life." Secret preparations for show trial also throw new light on the U. S. visit of Anastas Miko- yan, Khrushchev's current international confidence man. Like the sudden Soviet - provoked crisis over Berlin, Mikoyan's trip is seen as chief witnesses at the trial.

To remain top dog in t h e Kremlin, Khrushchev must reckon with the disgruntled officers in the Red Army and with the still-powerful chiefs of the Stalin era led by Mikhail Suslov.
