We propose a feasible experimental scheme, employing methods of population spectroscopy with two-level atoms, for a test of Bell's inequality for massive particles. The correlation function measured in this scheme is the joint atomic Q-function. An inequality imposed by local realism is violated by any entangled state of a pair of atoms.
