(AP) A protestor at the University oi California here has been chosen to teach American astronauts Russian for their 48-hour space link-up with a Soviet crew in July 1975. Anatole Forostenko says he thinks his students may be more motivated than most because their lives may depend on what they learn when they visit the Russian space ship and the Rus- sians visit theirs. "the Russian crews are re- ceiving additional training in English, and NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Adminis- tration) feels lhat both crews should understand both lan- guages for best communi- he said. The professor will head a four-person team of language specialists that will teach astro- nauts Thomas Stafford, Vance Brand and Donald Slayton at the Johnson Houston. Space Center in Basil Kostun of the University of Illinois and Nina Homer and James Flannery of the Universi- ty of Wisconsin will be in Foros- tenko's teaching crew.. The astronauts will receive 12 to 20 hours of instruction a week. Forostenko said he will move to Houston this month and remain there until the planned lift-off date of the space mission July 15, 1975. Forostenko, a native of Rus- sia, is an assistant professor of Russian at the UC-Riverside. He graduated from Rutgers univer- sity in 1962 and has taught at In- diana university and Rutgers.
