Bio Note*It Means Much to Be called a "Good Sportsman"
In this workaday world of ours it means much to be called "a good sportsman." It is a title of distinction -- one that is earned through real merit, through manliness, through achievement. It is a title that is never lightly bestowed.
One can be a good sportsman in business and in politics, in religion and in athletics. There are good sportsmen in every line of human endeavor. A good sportsman smiles at defeat and gives the other fellow credit for success. A good sportsman is honest and sincere, truthful and tolerant. A good sportsman is honest and sincere, fully, cheerfully and without complaint.
Young "Mickey" McManus, left end on Academy's football team, must be a good sportsman. He must possess all the attributes that are necessary before this title can be bestowed. In this young man still in his teens, is a great lesson.
In the first place this young man is of heroic mold. But nobody realized it until he was hurt. And the injury he received in a football game a week ago yesterday, when his team defeated the eleven representing East High, brought to him something that could come to him in no other way. It brought to him and to many, many others the knowledge that one can be a hero without performing great deeds of courage or valor.
Young "Mickey" McManus, outside of his school acquaintances, knew comparatively few persons. For a few weeks last year, and for still fewer this year, his name figured only in the news of the sports pages. Yet thousands knew him and applauded him. His was a personality that stamped itself on every follower of high school football.
Few, indeed were those who knew for four or five days before the Academy - East High game that young McManus had hurt himself. He told no one. He was afraid that his coach would discover that he was injured and would not allow him to play. He suffered the pain of the injury with a grin. There never was a whimper from him. And he went into the game carrying bandages that were placed on him at home.
But no sooner was he hurt and forced to retire from the game that the secret was out. And when the big, white ambulance took him to St. Vincent' hospital it was followed by scores who deserted the game. Then and there dis this lad earn the title of good sportsman.
Then, too began the unfolding of the tribute that is ever paid to a good sportsman. Never in the history of St. Vincent's hospital did a patient there receive the homage and attention that came to this young hero. In the few days that he was there more than 600 men and women, boys and girls, laden with flowers and fruits and delicacies of every description, visited him in a steady stream.
It was a remarkable demonstration. It was a wonderful tribute to a good sportsman. It was unique and it was deserved.
It was not a tribute to prowess as an athlete. It was not an acknowledgement of his standing as a student. Instead, it was demonstration of true regard for a good sportsman.
The player Mcmanus, the student McManus meant nothing. But there was a world of meaning in the title of McManus, good sportsman. What a fine example it this young man for his fellows; in fact for all of us.

"This lovely bud, so young, so fair,
Called hence by early doom.
Just came to show how sweet a flower, In Paradise would bloom.
Ere sin could harm or sorrow fade,
Death came with friendly care,
The opening bud to Heaven conveyed,
And bade it blossom there."
