WILL PAINT BREWERY SIGN ON PYRAMIDS
BIG BREWERY MAN HERE FOR FAREWELL BEFORE A LONG EUROPEAN TOUR
Jake Duttenhoefer, of Tumwater, Wash., chief engineer of the Olympia Brewing Company, and best known brewery man on the coast, is in the city inspecting the local plant. Duttenhoefer has charge of the engineering work for the big Olympia brewery, the Salem brewery, the Bellingham plant and a brewery in San Francisco. This will probably be his last trip to Salem for some time, as he is planning on a long trip in the east and Europe. He says he intends to paint a Salem Beer sign on the Pyramids and will pull off some other stunts to surprise the natives.
Jake is one of these genial fellows that always makes a hit wherever he goes, and he is ready to bet he will buy the sultan of Turkey a drink before he returns and hopes to introduce Salem foam into King Edward's private family. Duttenhoefer started on the European trip last year, got as far as Philadelphia, fell into the arms of a confidence man and woke up in New York with nothing but a gold brick and the price of a telegram to Olympia. The price of that telegram shows how he happened to get back west on the cushions instead of on the rods. He will remain in Salem several days this time before bidding farewell for a year or two.
