West Berlin - They Wait West Berliners, under the protection of allied troops, go about their daily tasks well aware that their divided city has been pounced upon by Khrushchev as his frail reason for resuming atom-bomb tests. Sidelights on life in Berlin show allied soldiers on streets, a British lad riding bike is escorted to school by tanks after threats from east Berlin police; a bride is married in the east while her mother watches from the west. Man smoking, fills in mortar, and other workers fill in cement blocks. Women look out windows below at soldiers guarding wall. Mother crying, little girl wiping away tears, and waving to daughter who was married on the other side.
