If George Bush keeps on like this, they can cancel the 1992 election. It's over before it starts. The Democrats will not only have to draft a candidate, they'll have to arrest him, drag him to the Democratic National Convention and force him to accept the nomination under threat of indictment. Bush is not merely riding high in the polls - something on the order of 80 percent approval - he is on a roll the likes of which we haven't seen in this country since the days of Calvin Coolidge.

Here was a chance at stardom, however fleeting: A beer commercial was being filmed at Brownie's Pub. Sisters Carolyn and Belinda Dick of Primos had no idea they would be asked to participate, but they heeded the casting call in the flier Belinda received at work and bounded over to Woodlyn. A good move, as it turned out. "We walked in, and a crew member asked us if we wanted to be in a commercial," Carolyn said, her words like rapid fire. "As soon as we walked into the back room, (a crew member)

GENEVA - Free beer will reportedly be verboten soon in Switzerland. Swiss weekly Sonntag says that the Cabinet has drafted a plan to ban restaurateurs from offering any free drinks to customers, extending a ban on other alcoholic beverages to beer. Bar owners would still be allowed to offer "spontaneous" rounds to regulars. The proposal has drawn strong opposition from the hospitality industry as free beer promotions are common in bars, restaurants and at public events in Switzerland.

BOONE, N.C. FREE BEER FOR WOMEN PROTESTERS A restaurant owner thought he'd get some laughs with a sign that read: "Men - No Shirt, No Service. Women - No Shirt, Free Beer. " Instead, he got six women protesters who took off their shirts and asked for one on the house. The group wanted to stand up against sexism at the Charlie Horse restaurant, said Samantha Smith, an Appalachian State University student who videotaped the Jan. 26 protest. Smith said last weekk that five of the women sat topless and another kept her bra on for about 10 minutes before owner Bud Stewart asked them to put their shirts back on. They refused until Stewart took the sign down, Smith said.

FROM BILL TAMMEUS, KANSAS CITY STAR: President Bush says Fidel Castro is "showing signs of desperation. " Well, it is a little embarrassing for revolutionaries to die of old age. Does it affect the Index of Leading Economic Indicators when presidential candidates drop out of the race? Pat Buchanan says Preaident Bush "is very, very weak in his own party. " Usually free beer and better bean dip will overcome that. "Life," says Prince Charles, "is not worth living unless you have a choice of all the gloriously unhygienic things which mankind - especially the French portion of it - has lovingly created.

1,000 JONESES INVADE DISNEYLAND FOR NEW RIDE Keeping up with the Joneses can sometimes require braving poison darts, falling spikes, bats and the occasional snake. At least at Disneyland. About 1,000 people with the surname Jones were invited to wear the familiar brown fedora of their namesake movie hero for the California park's newest ride, "The Indiana Jones Adventure. " The three-minute, 20-second expedition Saturday took them through the Temple of the Forbidden Eye, where explosions, creepy bugs, boiling lava and an angry deity awaited.

Part of the first wave of Americans returning from the Persian Gulf are headed to Philadelphia - and a huge party at an airport hotel. According to a Defense Department spokeswoman, 95 members of the Navy's Amphibious Medical Support unit are to arrive here sometime tomorrow from Bahrain. And the staff at the Comfort Inn at the Philadelphia International Airport couldn't be happier. Yesterday, the military asked the hotel to hold 65 double-occupancy rooms. The motel said no problem, and promised to have a beer-and-pizza party waiting, said Judy Shedrick, the hotel's general manager.

Marc Lamont Hill thinks that people are too tight-lipped when it comes to discussing race.   So, on Wednesday night he turned to a surefire method of loosening lips: free beer. Hill — a Philadelphia native, a professor at Columbia University and a Daily News columnist — was the featured speaker at the fourth-annual MLK365 Beer Summit, a microbrew-lubricated forum on race relations in the Reading Terminal Market. "We've been seduced into thinking that race talk is over," said Hill.

You might expect an agency supposedly on the brink of elimination to tread quietly for a while. But even amid the legislature's latest failed attempt to make them part of the history from whence they came, Pennsylvania's favorite Prohibition reenactors were still rampaging across the commonwealth, doing their best to keep a lid on the 21st Amendment.   The Carrie Nation appreciation society that is the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board has trained its ax on the region's eminently likable Iron Hill chain of brew pubs.

VOICES . . . It didn't take long for a newcomer named Chris Threeday to start whining and complaining to his alter ego. That would be Chris Fourday, who became the little man inside the head of ace Cardinals righthander Chris Carpenter on May 12, 1997. He was making his first major league start against the Twins in Minnesota. Went three, got raked, took the L. He was 22, breaking in on a Blue Jays staff where the imperious Roger Clemens was the ace. Carpenter has started 347 regular-season games since that inauspicious debut and nine more in the postseason.

ANY PLAYER WHO posts a career year for a division champ is naturally going to become a fan favorite. But Alex Burrows' popularity goes beyond the ice. It extends to arguably the two sweetest words in the dictionary after "world peace. " "Free beer. " Burrows was a grinder his first three seasons. A key member of the Vancouver Canucks who would get blood on his jersey - frequently his own - as he agitated opponents into penalties or mistakes. He kind of reminds you of former Flyer and current broadcaster Keith Jones.
