Wor Thirtj'Five Year Service
i By Louise Barron
I “For he’s a jolly good fellow, for
- he’s a jolly good fellow—On
.! October 14, this song was heard
■I coming from the Salem dining
j room. ' The girls that were singing
j these words were standing and ap-
; plauding a man wearing a white
; apron and a large white chef’s cap.
:he man was Russell Crews and
ithe day marked his thirty-fifth
.'ear at Salem.
I went to talk to Russell about
■’these thirty-five years and found
,^iim in the bake shop cutting cakes
^anto squares for dinner. We sat
fe ovvn at one of the tables and
fussell began to tell me about his
first days at Salem.
The year was 1919. A young
'man began waiting on the senior
tables in the dining room at Salem
College on October 14. He plan
ned to work only a week. In fact,
he told a friend who worked in the
laundry “that he was leaving this
crummy place”.
The laundryman, who had been
at the college for thirty years, tried
to convince the young man that he
might change his mind. The young
man’s answer was, “I’ll never stay
here thirty years.”
But Russell did stay. He says
now that he hopes to be at Salem
thirty-five more years because it is
“a pleasure to work here among
the girls”.
He has come a long way from
those first days spent on tables.
In 1921 he began working in the
kitchen and did everything from
washing pots to bringing in sup
plies. Three years later, he began
cooking. Since then he has cooked
in three different kitchens. He
said he had worn out two but the
third one was about to wear him
When Russell first saw the pre
sent kitchen eight years ago, he
wanted all the girls to see it too.
It was then that he started having
kitchen parties during exams.
He had cooked for kitchen part
ies at summer camps and some
girls liked them so much that they
promised him they would come to
Salem. Some of them did just
Russell also told me some things
about his family. He has four
children—two boys and two girls.
His youngest boy is now in his
last year of college at Union Uni
versity in Richmond.
His other three children are al
ready out of college. One of them
is now studying at Julliard and
another has received her Masters
degree in Sociology.
