VVVJ GREETINGS AND BEST WISHES 1 To All Our Friends and Customers Celebrating FINNISH INDEPENDENCE DAY Monda December 6 By BOB BRINK Pott Staff Wrlttr Although the rubber strike has been over for several months, most people who bought autos without spare tires during the strike still haven't received them. And they'll have to wait a while longer because the tires aren't scheduled to arrive until the end of this month in most cases. Local car dealers say they've been plagued with complaints and blame the manufacturers, Better Business Bureau of Palm Beach County, Director David Fancher, said. A spokesman for General Motors Corp., the largest auto manufacturer, said the tire companies haven't supplied the manufacturers with ' enough tires. Spokesman Dee Allen, however, said they hope to have the tires delivered by Jan. 1. The sales manager of a West Palm Beach area General Motors dealership said, "We've got people who have been waiting since last February" for their spares. He said almost every car dealer in the area had the same problem. The manager said his dealership had loaned used tires to some customers who asked for them because they were going on trips or did a lot of local driving. But he said he told them he couldn't guarantee the tires' safety and urged their use only in case of emergency. He said he didn't have enough used tires to supply all the customers who bought new cars without spares. Fancher said some other car dealers also had loaned needed tires. The manager, who asked not to be identified, said the corporation had notified the dealership Oct. 21 that shipments of the spares had begun. The dealership made arrangements with three service stations to mount the tires and rented a warehouse for receiving them. Postcards were printed so customers could be notified, he said. But the tires never arrived, the manager said.

T. York said. York is scheduled to unveil at the Board of Regents meeting today a four-part proposal aimed at involving universities to a greater extent in pumping up the state's economy. "The growth part of Florida's economy will depend increasingly upon brains and human talents and skills, the development and delivery of which are the basic functions of a university," York said in a report to be delivered to Lt. Gov. Jim Williams, who also is scheduled to attend the meeting. Regents will review proposals for having universities work more closely with state officials and local governments in attracting new industry to the state. The proposal would call for a major push to develop an extensive solar energy industry in the state. "There is probably no other industry which is so needed and which fits so logically into Florida's economy." York said, adding the university system already has the essential components for such an industry. York said other areas where universities could offer aid were in expanding international trade activities of state businesses, creating industrial research parks and helping to relocate headquarters of various corporations here. 1 -wrsi82 A tunic top of lacy knit polyester touched with lurex over dyed to match polyester knit pull on pants in light blue with silver or bone with gold.
