The missing letters are:

MAGIC, as we have all the other letters from A to Y (skipping Z)

This clues:

A magic square, and converting the letters (A1Z26) lets us fill in the grid:

                              65 
 A W P D U     1 23 16  4 21| 65
 O N G R K    15 14  7 18 11| 65
 X Q M I B    24 17 13  9  2| 65
 T H S L F    20  8 19 12  6| 65
 E C J V Y     5  3 10 22 25| 65
              --------------+
              65 65 65 65 65  65
