24 down. Strength, as such, set a poor example. (Asset) fits. Anagram of as set? An asset a poor example of definition of strength???

Re ASSET.
Strength is defined as "a beneficial characteristic" in Chambers,which could possibly confirm your ASSET.

Hi Mamie

Anag.of POOR+F(symbol for force)
Really using shoehorns here!

thanks joker. rte guide xword can be vague at times. i have ?s?e? asset fits. must be the ultimate in expectation. 4 4. last hope. it comes as an emergency service 4 6 fire engine. these ans hold my 2 key letters for asset and as xword all finished asset it is. BUT A POOR EXAMPLE MUST MEAN JUST THAT. asset=strength=poor axample!

I totally agree mamie,this clue is starting to annoy me.
I'm going with your asset=strength=poor example, and put it down to a poor clue.
