John Is n native of Athens, Greece.
When lie came to this country his
name was John Peter Coutsogianno
poulos. On account of Ills great dilli
culty In making his intensive handle
understood, he cut off several yards
of It nnd became John P, Poulos. He
was drafted for service with the
Creek army during the first Balkan
war. After being mustered out he
emigrated to Amrelca and found em
ployment In the copper mines of Mich
igan.
After a few years ln this country he
returned to Greece for a visit. Greece
was having another little scrap then,
and be was drafted for the second
Balkan war. Ho did his bit and left
for America again. America entered
the war just aftor John got back, and
he enlisted for his third fling in the
Infantry. He did it well, and after
Uncle Sam had given him his dis
cbarge, he decided once more to visit
Greece. Result, he's In again!
This time the Greeks have drafted
him for service against the Turks. 1
John recently appealed to his con- -
pressman, W. Frank James of the
Twelfth Michigan district, opining
that he was fed up on wars and that
he wanted to get out of the army and
be married. Mr. .lames has taken up
the case with the State department.
Poulos is a fully naturalized citizen,
hut in the absence of treaty agree
ments between the United stairs and
Greece, his citizenship papers were
not sufficient to prevent his being
drafted.
