Amplifying his off-the-cuff remarks, he later warned: "We're '' going to have trouble ahead in international competition, unless we're as, efficient, as possible." As an.example he added: "I tried to buy a suit in Washington, and I had to go to three or four stores before a clerk came up to try to be helpful. Most just lean on a counter 15 feet away and call pver to you.'' . •• ; :.,• Are .we becoming a, nation , : o;f clock watch- :ers? It was evident that Hodges' had touched on a subject that involved nearly everyone. If there has been a rise in clock watching, what's beKind it? Some agreed with Hodges' diagnosis: "We're not giving (children) a set of values," said one woman. But others traced the condition to rising prosperity, the rise in leisure time, and the fact, as president Robert Bell of Packard Bell Electronics put it, that "the home is a much nicer place to be than it was." Several agreed with the attorney who said jobs have become "so atomized the individual has no feeling of personal responsibility." Hodges offered no eyre for clock watching, but his supporters suggested q few, Seattle florist Adolph Cqntplirvi, complginlng pboyt bis employes, couldn't think of any solution ''unless I make them all partners" — gnd, soys' h*'* *0r.- iously considering doing just thcjt.
