Thanks for your help.

I just figured out what was wrong with my method.
The default feel is actually hard-coded in the Afterstep
rather than being chosen from
I went to "Left-mouse clock => Desktop => Feels =>
feel.DEFAULT." after revising the file.  It now works.

This behavior defies the purpose of naming it "DEFAULT"
in /usr/local/share/afterstep/feels/feel.DEFAULT.
In my opinion, something should be revised in the code.
In my opinion, /usr/local/share/afterstep/feels/feel.DEFAULT
should be automatically chosen at start-up.
Otherwise, the file should be named differently
such as "feel.sample"

Why are there two places under the home directory?
One ~/.afterstep, the other is ~/GNUstep/AfterStep/...
