Green Bay Road, said its two radio stations, WRKR-FM and WRAC-AM, will simulcast their programming starting Feb. 3. In addition, the stations will assume the call letters WRKR AM and FM, said Kerby O'Connor, the company's vice president. O'Connor said public acceptance of WRKR's contemporary stereo music format in the three years the station has been on the air was the main reason for the change. He noted that a recent boost in power to 50,000 watts and a new 500-foot transmitting tower enhanced signal quality. WRKR is 100.7 on the FM dial. WRAC is at 1460 on AM radios.

Some 228,000 auto workers are off the job this week because of sluggish sales which have plagued the Industry: 110,000 at GM, 65,000 at Ford and 63,650 at Chrysler.

An Associated Press survey showed that utilities report an adequate supply of gas to serve residential customers. Shortages may cause problems, however, for so-called interruptible users businesses and industries whose contracts Include provisions for supply reductions In times of need. The American Gas Association estimates that two-thirds of all Americans heat their homes with natural gas. The average heating bill for 1973, the latest year for which figures are available, was $155, the association said. In a December ruling, the Federal Power Commission authorized natural gas producers to charge up to 50 cents per 1,000 cubic feet for gas sold to interstate pipelines from wells that began operation after Jan. 1, 1973. Ford, in his State of the Union message, proposed an excise tax of 37 cents per 1,000 cubic feet of natural gas and removal of federal regulation of interstate gas prices. Ford also has urged steps to increase the price of both imported and domestic crude oil, a move that administration spokesmen say would boost the cost of gasoline and other pet- I i I of the average vehicle has increased about $1,000.
