Roddenberry says no. He views it as optimistic and upbeat, as was Star Trek "It's about a planet that's beginning to said the burly one-time airline pilot and policeman. "The water is clear, the air is clean It's an optimistic series, really. Even though we've lost our civilization, as we've lost 10 to 12 civilizations before, man can come back and do better. "I believe in mankind. We're an extraordinary creature. Our destiny is not dependent upon the materiality of this civ- ilization There can be few ca- tastrophies larger 'than the loss ol the Roman Empire. We lost that, but we rebuilt again and made it better." Planet Earth, which will be launched on ABC Tuesday, is in a way the flip side of Star Trek The starship Enterprise was a means by which its crew could visit strange planets for adventures with alien people. Planet Earth is earthbound, but its regular cast will girdle the globe for adventures with the surviving will, of course, have developed in strange and imaginative ways A difference is that as a hero Planet Earth has a 20th- ccntury man for better audience identification. John Saxon is Dylan Hunt, a scientist projected into the fu- ture by suspended animation. He joins with Pax, an organ- ization of the world's remaining scientists, teachers and artists who are striving to knit all the cultures into one society based on universal brotherhood. Pollution device removal legal EDMONTON (CP) Mechanics in Alberta who remove pollution control devices from automobiles are not acting illegally, Environment Minister Bill Yurko said Thursday.

Art theft investigator skilful with a brush By GEORGE KRIMSKY NEW YORK in- former glanced at his watch and tried to look casual as he peered over his newspaper in search of the policeman who had promised to meet him at East River Pier No. 15. The only man in sight was a shaggy-haired artist sketching tugboats in the harbor. "Looking for me. drawled the artist, without looking up from his sketch pad. -'You "Yeah, I'm said the artist Not an unusual approach for Robert Volpe, detective 3rd grade who is not your usual policeman and not your usual artist. His job with New York City- police department is hunting down stolen art and the people who try to get away with it. In 18 months. Volpe. 31. has helped recover more than million worth of stolen art, collectors' items and artifacts. He is the sole member of the art identi- fies 11 o n ''team.'" Sell well When off duty, Volpe likes to paint strong things with gentle strokes If he can bear to part with the result, Volpe sells a painting for nearly as much as he earns from a month as a gumshoe. He has had his works in one-man shows at New York galleries, and critics have given him their blessing. Is the cop an artist or the artist a cop9 Detective Volpe will tell you within e a r sh o t of a department superior that lie's an artist first and a cop second "I was born an artist I had to learn to be a cop Then catch that grin as COMMUNITY SERVICES DEPARTMENT CITY OF LETHB PUBLIC SWIMMING.

He invites you to look through the magnifying glass at tho dotted hues as in a newspaper photograph "In rny own way, I love this work, he says Volpe's way is original even among today's "new breed' of city policeman A 10-year veteran of the New York force, he has never been in uniform, and it's hard to picture him in one. He never wears a watch because "'time doesn't mean anything to me." He meticulously retains the non-police look of an undercover man Light brown hair tails in ringlets around the open neck of a tight, knit shirt. He somehow manages to conceal a 38-calibre pistol in the waistband of hip-hugging, flared trousers Mixture Volpe is a curious mixture of the private and public In his short career as an art snoop, he has emerged as a minor celebrity. .He has appeared on talk shows, has gone on TV surrounded by stolen loot, has had a book written about him. and has given innumerable in- to the irritation of superiors and colleagues. The book. Volpe, the Art Cop, is, due for publication this fall. Then there is Volpe the loner, the cop who goes his own way in a profession where teamwork is a creed. Volpe the family man, absolutely refuses to discuss publicly his wife and three children, although one catches signs of pride and affection Volpe, the son. speaks warmly ol his strict and gentle upbringing but adheres to the Italian-American stricture that deems family to be only the business of the lannlv Problem Art theft is a growing busi- ness. Authorities say there me no statistics to accurately measure the depth of the prob- lem. Estimates vary from million to million worth of fine art believed stolen in the United States in 1973. All agree, that the lion's share of the action takes place in this art-happy city. Tho art idcndfication toain was in.nipiralod in January 1972 Volpe then an undercover narcotics agent whose reputation as a skilled artist and restorer was widespread in the department, was recruited late in the first year At first he worked with a woman partner, but she soon took loavo from the force and he has since preferred to work alone "I wish I had five Volpes to get this job done." said Lieut. William Carey, commander of the Property Recovery Squad. "He's dedicated and he really knows his Muff He paused, measuring his words thoughtfully "Of course., we have to make sure he keeps on course.
