Greek Religious Service
Under Student Auspices
The Great Vespers to be held

Council and Panhellenic will repro-
duce the religious service of theI
Greek Orthodox Church.
The Latvian Singers, a group of
nationally-known litany choristers,
Will be assisted by two student choirs
in singing the religious music of more
than 154,000,000 worshippers in the
Baltic states and Russia.
The music they -will present has'

Austris Wihtol. The Lord's Prayer
will be sung by the three groups in

Praise" is written to the music of
Vinogradov and arranged, by Wihtol.
The prayer music will be an ar-
rangement of traditional music sym-
bolizing the procession of the priests
into the audience. The practice
dates back to the days of early
Christian martyrdom when the priest
saw every worshipper face to face
before starting the service. This
was done to determine if spies were

litany written by Wihtol, will be given
its first performance. The student

hock Is Bach-:
Which Means
Spring's Here
One sure sign that Spring has come,
even if snow is falling, is that bock
beer has made its reappearance at
the downtown taverns.
But there seems to be general dis-
agreement among students as to what
bock beer actually is. In general ap-
pearance it's a much darker, mahog-
any colored brew, with a foam of a
light amber color. It has a slightly
sweeter taste and demonstrates its
superiority over regular beer by hav-
ing that indescribable "something,"
which can only be detected after six
or seven glasses.
But how is bock beer made? A
:owntown beerhall proprietor, one
who should know, explains that bock
contains, or should contain, more
malt, more alcohol and should be
aged longer than ordinary beer. "A
good bock," he maintains, "should
be aged about eight months."
The strength of bock, as compared
to the strength of regular beer, is
responsible for its name, he con-
tinues. it was so named because the
brew is "so strong it could knock
down a bock." The word bock, he
claimed is derived from Ziegenbock,
which is the German word for male
goat, or billygoat. This also ex-
plains the famous goat trademark
for all brands of bock beer.
However, another authority states
that the term bock beer is a corrupt
version of enbecker bier named for
the town of Einbeck in Germany,
where it was' first brewed.
The driver of a beer truck, asked
about the modern manufacture of
bock, commented, "Dat stuff's de
bunk. Dey just put more m'lasses
in it."

Naturally in a laboratory of this
kind there are several research proj-

students. Dr. Kynock himself com-
pleted an important investigation
into the properties of tropical woods
which has been since utilized in thej
wood-working industries.
One of the present research proj-
