 ACUSTAR PRESIDENT TO HEAD VICA COUNCIL
 HIGHLAND PARK, Mich., Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Forest J. Farmer,


President of Acustar, Inc., has been named chairman of a Detroit organization that provides support to Vocational Industrial Clubs of America (VICA), a national vocational education group.
 Farmer, as the new head of the Detroit Area VICA Industry Council, said, "My top priorities are to get more individuals and companies involved in VICA, and to improve VICA's fund-raising efforts. Increased funding will be critical to our success."
 The council is a coalition of business and industry leaders that supports vocational and technical education programs in the Detroit area.
 "Mr. Farmer's background as a former teacher and his position in the business community make him ideal for leading the council during the next three years," said Dr. Beatrice Thomas, executive director of the council.
 Farmer received a B.S. degree in biology and physical education from Purdue University in 1965. He was junior high school teacher in the Indianapolis public schools from 1964-68. He joined Chrysler in 1968 as part of the company's Foreman Training Program.
 Farmer replaces Richard E. Acosta, vice president, Car and Truck Assembly Operations for Chrysler, who served as VICA chairman since 1988.
 Acustar is Chrysler Corporation's wholly owned parts subsidiary.
