"It shows them if you put your mind lo it, you can do anything." Tim now is walking with the aid of crutches and braces. He is mentally above average and loves school. "We were told when he was diagnosed at the age of one that he would be a vegetable and have to be Mrs. Clancy said. Instead, Tim rides a hydraulic lilt bus to Taylor elemen- tary school and attends fourth grade with non-handicapped students. "We're terribly proud of Taylor Mrs. Clancy said. "The integration with the normal students is just marvelous. The goal is to eventually get the students able to attend their own neighborhood school.

Accent on Youth Carmakers Introduce 6 New Models DETROIT (UPI) The bot- tom of a sales slump may seem like an odd time to try something new, but au- tomakers are planning in- troduction of six new models in the coming months. A small Cadillac, American Motors' Pacer, the Mercury Bobcat, two new Volkswagen models and a five-cylinder, diesel-powcred Mercedes will have early 1975 debuts. They'll join eight, all-new '75s that were introduced in October. The sales downturn, off 3ii percent in November from 1973, hasn't provided the best atmosphere to lest the new- models. But most have been inching their way up on the sales charts, especially Ford's luxury compacts, the Granada and Monarch, which accounted for 2.6 percent of all sales in November. The new models set for showroom introductions in the first three months of 1975 were planned long before sales went into a tailspin, but industry analysts aren't unhappy. "Now is a good time to have something new to offer because that's where the action one analyst said. "Now isn't the time to throw the same ball up in the air. "If we didn't stir up some interest with fresh products, things could be a lot worse than thi-v arc."
