Mrs. David Brewer, for the past
17 vears the chief of the Cbema-
wa kitchen, supervises all this
food preparation, both the daily
meals and the canning for the
winter supply. , Recently, when
her daughter urgsd that she was
"working too bard." Mrs. Iirewer
reDlted. "Why. this Is a vacation
with only 350 to cook for." She
has had more than 800 at a time
to feed, "and it any one ever went
hungry It was because he had the
lockjaw or wasn't tlrere. at an.
Mrs. Brewer's story is a real
epic. She Is an Alaska Indian,
who as a 12-year-old girl came
down to the states, alone, because
such Fox Trots
" i 7
after the deals of her mother she
felt that ' hr tnce happy - home
had lost ita charmi " She vorked
at St. Helens, going precariously
to school and doing the heavy
work: In a kitchen for her fkeep."
When the Indian school . was
opened at Forest Grove, Jn 18S1.
she learned of Its advantages, and
in 1882 went there as a student.
Aftr a few months she
became a salaried employe o:
the school, and has bean on ita
payrolls continuously ever sinci
38 years. She married Davil
Brewer, then a student, and later
the old school disciplinarian for
25 years; Brewer Hall, the boys'
dormitory now on the campus was
named for him. He died in 1906.
Mrs. Brewer was or a long
time matron of the boys' dormi
tory; she has filled other Import
ant positions with the school, but
her present work as kitchen su
pervisor has held her longest. It
is an executive position of lespon
sibilltr beside which many ether
teaching and official places are
almost insignificant. With, all
this winter food to prepare, and
the daily menu as well as the phy
sical welfare of the, whole school
to look after, her hoars are full. In
canning season, she 'frequently
stays up as late as midnight, or
even l o'clock, t to see that the
last o the precious food is saved.
"We've never lost even a bean
by not staying up to can it." said
Mrs. Brewer and It looks like a
wonderful motto! ;
Mrs. Brewer has ra'sed a tarn
ily of seven children. One daugh
ter, iMrs, Turney. a talented mu
sician, graduated; from Willam
ette, and went to Oberlin col
lege She is now1 superintendent
of the music department of Che-
mawa. Anomer daughter, Mrs
Mason, is an assistant in the
scHool. Other children have
graduated or are now attending
at the Oregon Agricultural col
lege; all are going along to posi
tions of honor and respons'bility
" "I Hks my work," said Mrs
Brewer. "When the school was
still young, the superintendent.
Dr..Minthorn, said to my husband
and me. 'You ought to serve your
people for at least 30 years, for
the privilege this school has giv
en you.' Well. I have served al
most 40 years, and am still serv
ing. It Is my Job!"
