Although denied priorities for brass and placed behind a bar of Oregon fir, from which he draws only short and long beers, George is making his claim as one of the nation's most unusual bartenders. One day, after working more than a year without? a vacation, George got the idea o£ calling himself "Poor George." He then instituted the first "bar poor box," and asked all beer fans to help "poor George" lake a vacation. In one week he had collected $8.08 toward his goal of $44.11, which later took him to a resort for 2 weeks rest from the constant . orders--"D r a w . o n e , George . . . Draw 2, George." When George returned a new man from his vacation last summer, he posed, holding a beer in toast, for press pictures, which were mailed to Woodburn boys in the New Guinea area under the captain--"Beer for the soldiers." To date, more than 15 letters have been published in the local Woodburn paper from the New Guinea soldiers, thanking "Poor George" for the toast. One bar philosophizer got the idea George reminded him ol Winston Churchill. George then posed in his overcoat, pulled his hat down over his eyes, placed a cigar AT FIRST SNIFFLE, SNEEZED, Put a few drops of Va-tto-nolup each nostril atthe very first sniffle or sneeze.
