Moravec Quits Bed To Address Youths
Football Captain Vince Moravec got off his hospital bed for the first time since the Virginia game Saturday morning when he kept a two month old appointment with over 500 Greater Boston youths of the Red Feather Brigade.
The convalescent gridiron leader who will never play the game again accented "clean living" in his address from a wheelchair-stretcher at the First Corps Cadets Armory's Community Fund "Youth Serenade."
To keep the date, Moravec prevailed upon his surgeon, Dr. Thomas B. Quigley, to allow him to leave his Stillman Infirmary cot, using an ambulance for the trip.
"I received much more from football than it has ever taken out of me," Moravec told the half-thousand youngsters.
