"This situation may breed poor job satisfaction which results in poor performance from the soldier," said an internal Army publication read largely y enlisted men. Soldiers caught in this bind could lose out in promotions, skill pay, selection for schooling and even qualification for re-enlistment, the publication said. Asked about the extent of such mismatched assignments, the Army said about 46,000 men are in this fix, roughly nine per cent of all its enlisted men. The Army said it is working to correct the problem and that the "mismatch trend is improving." service is doing the utmost with its alloted manpower. "When the Army is not actually fighting, the management of human resources is our single most important func- :ion." Secretary of the Army Howard H.

CHICAGO (AP) -- This is a great time for clock collectors. They are ticking off the dollars. Bernard J. Edwards, president of the Chicago chapter of the National Association of Watch and. Clock Collectors, says clocks are a better investment nowadays than the hottest stocks. But you've got to find the right ones.

"Alarm clocks made from 12 to the 1930s and early 1940s e coming up fast in the clock ;rby," said Edwards, a collcc- r for 15 years. "Anyone who as in the service during World ar II probably will remember e alarm clocks that had 'war arm' printed on the face, lere were millions of them, ut most were lost or thrown vay. They are worth $22 to 5 now." Double-dial calendar clocks nd railroad clocks are in de- and now while a few years ;o school clocks were a big ing, Edwards said.

"Take a good look at the movements,"'he advises. "Old locks, being .handmade, have novements rather on the crude ide. New ones look new, they are probably stamped out. The plates are thin and are usually riveted instead of screwed." Two years ago, there were 77,700 improperly assigned soldiers, or more than 15 per cent of enlisted strength, it said. Officials said mismatch often results from an oversupply or undcrsupply of specific skills and that much of the difficulty is centered at the unit level where commanders must fill slots with whatever men they have. The Army also acknowledged that "poor utilization policy in units" has contributed t o - t h e problem. PBA Tour Stop WATJKEGAN, III.
