AMSTERDAM, The Nether-
lands (Y) - In the Dutch army,
reveille has been abolished,
soldiers seldom salute any
more and Pvt. Jan Wesseldijk
is still at work unionizing the
draftees.

force wakes up to alarm clocks,
fills a defense role inside the
North Atlantic Treaty Organiz-
ation and is campaigning for
overtime when duty exceeds 40
hours a week.

length he wants.
