D6-Palm Beach Post. Friday, December 10, 1976 Nations Meet on Pollution Woes MARINELAND (AP) - Russian and American scientists opened a joint symposium on industrial pollution and chemical poisons this week. "The world is small, indeed, and we've got to clean it up," said Dr. G. I. Sidorenko of the U.S.S.R. Academy of Medical Sciences in Moscow. "What we do here is of importance to all mankind, and it will build friendship between our two great nations." Sidorenko spoke through an interpreter, but Dr. Nicholas Litvinov, head of international scientific coop eration for the Sysin Institute in Moscow, spoke in English. "You have so many cars in this country that you have more air pollution than we do," Litvinov said. "But our two peoples have much in common. Scientific research is getting more expensive and in this way, we can share our work and get more for less investment." He said the Volga River in Russia is polluted in certain areas, but measures are being taken to reduce the danger. FOR ALL YOUR BANKING NEEDS I ' ....siiL ."""v.

"I was scared when I first saw him, he's so big," said Constance Huber, who became the object of Traveler's attention about a month ago. She said it finally took Traveler's 12-mile odyssey along busy Miami streets and expressways to prove the dog should stay with her. MIAMI (AP) - Traveler is a dog who has earned both his name and the right to stay with his new ownoj., after walking a dangerous 12 miles' to return to his adopted home. But although the 80-pound redbone hound has no apparent doubts about where he belongs, his new owner admits she had her reservations at first. Miami's Pension Plan Feared To Be a Strain on the City Mrs. Huber said she first met the dog when she was out for a walk with her poodle, Smokey. She said Traveler joined them, then followed them home. Mrs. Huber said the hound made it clear he wanted to stay, pushing his way into her house for a drink of water and sleeping in her garage overnight. ' "He wouldn't leave," she said. But Mrs. Huber said she had other ideas and took out an ad in the paper to find Traveler's owners. Weeks passed and when there was no response she found a new home for the dog through some friends. "I really didn't think I could manage to keep Traveler because I already have my Smokey," Mrs. Huber said. Traveler was taken away last week. He disappeared from his new home the next day and appeared on Mrs. Huber's front step three days later. To make the journey home, Traveler had to skirt the busy Palmetto Expressway, several canals and many confusing intersections. "I think it's an omen that Traveler came back," Mrs. Huber said. "I know I'll keep him now. He means so much to me and Smokey now I could never give him up." tions to ease the financial strain on the pension systems. According to Pension Department official Ernie Mazin, Demby would have collected only about $6,000 a year in pension benefits if he had retired at the age of 55, before his salary increased and improvements were made in the pension program. Under Miami's current retirement plan, employes receive 3 per cent of their highest two-year average salary for each year of service plus an additional 10 per cent if they served as a department head for 10 years. In Demby's case, the final total comes to 140 per cent of his average salary of $35,187 a year. MIAMI (AP) - Ben Demby, who started out as a $120-amonth Miami policeman, now receives $36,400 as the city's communications expert. Next month he'll retire on $47,700-a-year, thanks to a generous city pension system. "It doesn't make me feel bad," said Demby, 70, who has worked 43 years for the city. But City Manager Joseph Grassie said he is concerned that the lucrative pension system has placed a financial strain on the city. Grassie said he has reservations about a pension system which permits an employe to earn more after retirement than when on the job.
