Currently on their tenth U. S.

Choir Boys, will be heard at 8:30
p.m. tomorrow in Hill Auditorium.
One of the oldest musical groups
in the world, the choir was found-
ed in 1498, six years after Colum-

Holy Roman Emperor, Maximilian
I ordered the organization of a
boy's choir to participate in the
performance of religious music in
the Court Chapel in Vienna.
First coming to this country in
1932, the choral group appeared
annually in the United States un-
til 1938. With the outbreak of
World War II in 1939 the Rev.
Fr. Joseph Schnitt, rector of the
