[MAN - says for most part, all satisfied with agreement.] Goodyear chairperson Charles Pilliod says agreement is inflationary and will cause rise in tire prices; also says long strike gave foreign tire companies, especially French company, Michelin, inroads to American market [PILLIOD - remarks with regard to strikes in plants of 4 largest competitors came after French built new factory in US.] If Goodrich, Firestone and Uniroyal follow Goodyear, workers could be back on jobs by next week
