because groups would not need to build
sets on the stage. She said important
additions would be the rehearsal room,
building and office space, and a "Green
Room," where a production company
can meet the public.
"Those are fine fringe benefits
and it completes something very well
begun," Galan said.
"The new facility will make possible
more efficient use of -the Center since
heretofore it. has been necessary to
reserve the actual stage for rehearsal
purposes," said Interim University
President Allan Smith. "Further, the
existence of rehearsal dance areas will
provide a service not previously
available on campus."
Last Thursday, the University Board
of Regents approved the 26,000 square-
foot addition to the theater facilities
and appointed the design, architec-
tural, and construction firms.
Bids most likely will be taken before
spring 1980.
The building, which was named for
the Power family, has been in the plan-

dedicated in fall of 1971, actress Helen
Hayes, author Truman Capote and Gov.

dignitaries in attendance.

AN INCREASED demand for study
space and a general desire to upgrade
services, were the major reasons for
the $100,000 renovation, Starring said.
"The particular problem period used to
be from midterms into finals, but in the
past couple of years, students have
been using the library more heavily
even early in the term," he said.
He added that the heaviest study
periods are Sundays and evenings early
in the week.,
Starring said the new arrangement
will also allow for increased efficiency
and flexibility in the library's
periodical system. Currently, the serial
listings are scattered throughout the
library and are only available on week-
days before 5 p.m. When the transfor-
mation is completed the listings will be
conveniently situated in one area and
will be available during regular library
hours, including evenings and weeken-

From AP and Reuter
GENEVA, Switzerland - Soviet
figure skaters Ludmilla Belousova and
Oleg Protopopov, two-time Olympic
champions, and aging darlings of the
Russian ice rink, have defected to the
West, the Swiss government announced
'The husband-wife team, who
dominated world pairs skating in the
mid-1960's, were the fourth and fifth
prominent Soviet performers to seek
political asylum abroad in little more
than a month. Three dancers of the
Bolshoi Ballet defected to the United
THE 47-YEAR-OLD Protopopov and
his 44-year-old wife vanished last
Tuesday, the day before they were to
hVe flown back to the Soviet Union af-
ter ~ 'fotf week skating exhibition tour'
of West Germany and Switzerland.
Swiss Justice Ministry spokesman
Ulrich Hubacher announced yesterday
that they had asked for asylum in Swit-
zerland last week, and he said the
government would make a decision
within several weeks. He did not
di$close their present whereabouts or
their plans.
Their Swiss host and tour organizer,
Kurt Soenning, told a reporter that the
couple, who are childless, arrived at
Zurich airport Aug. 22 with 10 pieces of
luggage. "He brought a videorecorder
and she even a sewing machine. I joked
about it then. Now, I know why they
brought all of this," Soenning said.
SOENNING SAID yesterday: "Last
Monday, while I was at work in the af-
ternoon, they took leave of my wife,
thanked her profusely and went to a
dinner at the invitation of some friends
in Thalwil. %
"Later that evening two taxis came
for them in Thalwil and took them off to
an unknown destination.
"The next think I heard was when the
Soviet Culture Ministry in Moscow rang
me at my home to ask where'the couple
had gone."''
HE SAID he thought they made a
wrong decision. "If I knew where they
are I would tell them, 'Go home,' but I
guess it is too late. . . . I don't think
they have much of a chance in the West, '
professionally. They are well past their
peak. After all, they are in their mid

The Protopopovs, married since 1957,
rose to world fame at the Olympic
Games in Innsbruck, Austria, in 1964,

world championships in Colorado
Springs, Colo., where they placed third,
losing their title to another Soviet pair,
Irina Rodnina and %/4alexei Ulanov, who
went on to win the 1972 Olmypic title.
The Protopopovs turned professional
early in the 1970s, skating with a troupe
based in Leningrad, their hometown.
In Moscow, a Soviet sports official
told a Western reporter he knew of no
reason why they should leap to the
West. "They had every benfit here," he

In another case, self-exiled Soviet
chess grandmaster Victor Korchnoi, a
resident of Switzerland since 1977, has
been granted political asylum in this
country, the Swiss justice ministry an-
nounced yesterday.
A spokesman said Korchnoi filed his
request for asylum in Switzerland only
earlierthis year. "He apparently could
not make up his mind for along time
where to settle," the spokesman ex-
