JOHN RAYMOND HIGGINS

- Class of 1917 -



- Died in Service -

The following service record of John Raymond Higgins '17, who died of typhoid fever Oct. 25, at Base Hospital No. 18 in France,  has just been received :
When the United States entered the war he tried to enlist, but was three or four times rejected on account of his health. He then devoted himself to Y. M. C. A. work. Later he was called in the draft, and twice rejected. On Lincoln's Birthday, Iois, he finally received notice from the government that his country had need of him, and in a letter sent to his mother on that day he wrote, "I am happier than I have been for a long time, to think that now I may be in a position really to count in the contest. This is not the end of life, but the real beginning." He was at Camp Dix only a short time, and sailed for France late in April of this year.
A letter recently received from a secretary of the American Red Cross stated that on Oct. 17 he had been brought to the hospital in a very serious condition. The secretary said that his nurse had been devoted to him, and had said, "he was the most perfect gentleman she ever saw and so sweet and patient." He was buried with military honors in the cemetery connected with the hospital. Te services were conducted by the Chaplain, Mr. Hunt, and were attended by an officer of the hospital staff and a detachment of the corps. Besides his parents, who reside at Flemington, N. J., he is survived by a brother.
He was a member of the University debating team.

Musical instruments had been requisitioned but did not come until after the regiment was gone. An effort was made to enlist an entire band but was fruitless. Pvt. Billy Higgins, formerly a professional actor, was transferred to the organization from the Depot Brigade and became famous over night.

The entire regiment attended a vaudeville show at the Liberty theatre, given by Higgins and a large assemblage of assistants. It was a great success and established the Regimental Fund.

Early in the year it was decided to organize a band. Instruments were secured, the regiment was searched for men of musical ability, and all were assembled at Headquarters Company, under the direction of Lieut. Leonce R. Legendre. Pvt. George L. Polk, later made assistant band leader, worked hard with this material, and in a few weeks it was evident that the band would be a success. At the same time, Pvt. William Higgins, afterward made color sergeant, who had entertained the regiment and its guests since leaving Funston, gathered together a number of entertainers and started work on a theatrical production, which during the winter and spring not only provided entertainment for the companies of the 805th, but also played with great success in almost every town in the Argonne-Meuse sector, and later went to Neufchateau and nearby places. At Camp Pontanezen, Brest, this show was one of the most popular in the big embarkation center.

Page 203

-- Presenting "Billy" Higgins --
"LOOKY yonder, looky yonder!"

It's Color Sgt. Billy Higgins, dressed up in overalls, a cutaway coat, a derby hat, and a red bandana handkerchief, with a 50-carat stove polish shine on his face and an inch-wide border of pink grease paint around his mouth.

Billy was the star of the vaudeville show.

He was still languishing out in Detention Camp No. 2, where all recruits who came to Camp Funston were sent until the Medicos were sure they hadn't anything catching, when word got about of his presence.

A regimental show was in the wind and the colored troops at Funston and the outlying camps were combed for talent. Higgins had been an actor in his civilian days and he was borrowed and given a pass to go to Kansas City and get his make-up.

As all who attended will testify, the first regimental show at the Liberty theatre was a grand success. Everybody was there.

Billy Higgins took the house by storm. The packed theatre was in a roar from the moment he came upon the stage.

"Higgins must be in the 805th!" Colonel Humphrey decreed, and the necessary applications were put in and followed up. And Pvt. Higgins joined the regiment just before it left for Europe.

Whenever the train stopped and the men filed out to get a bite of Red Cross sandwiches, Higgins would get on a chair and sing "Everything," or "Mason-Dixon Line," and other ditties that were irresistible.

When the Bearcats landed in Camp Upton, N. Y., and started for Europe on board the Saxonia, Higgins was the chief entertainer during the entire trip of fourteen days.

After moving headquarters to Chatel Chebery, the organizing of a regimental show began. The men got together and soon were entertaining the many guests of the 805th Pioneer Infantry, among whom were the Congressional Committee on Military Affairs, the Staff College of the American Expeditionary Forces, and many other visitors of high rank. They were glad to meet the 805th and spoke of the regimental show all over the American Expeditionary Forces.

Consequently, prior to our leaving for Brest, a tour of the Advance Section S. 0. S. was arranged, and the Bearcat Entertainers made a hit wherever they played. When they rejoined the regiment in Brest, the Bearcat show was billed almost every night. Some of the popular songs that Higgins starred with were:

"Somewhere between here and Yonder." .

"Shooting across the Rhine."

"There's a great Day coming when you Lay that Gang Plank down."

"Oh! Doc, then I'll go with you."


One of Billy Higgins' "features" was a prayer which went as follows:
"Our father which art in Washington,
"Baker be thy name.

"May the telegrams fly to Chatel-Chebery, as they do at G. H. Q. "Forgive the mess sergeant and the top-kicker, and all those who wear bars and trespass against us.

"Oh, lead us not into the Army of Occupation,

"And deliver us from another service stripe.

"Give us a boat that we may see some blue water and go to God's country,

"And live in peace forever and ever—eight Men."

The choruses of some of the most popular songs are here given:

"Bull Frog Hop"

Chorus: Commence to wiggle from side to side,
Git away back and do the Mobile Glide;
Then you do the shimmy with so much spice,
Stoop low, hey Bo!

Stew the rice, do the seven-year itch and the possom trot.
Then you scratch the gravel in a vacant lot,
Slap your hands and then you squat—
That's that bullfrog hop.

"You'll Find Dixie Land in France"

Chorus: You remember dancing Mose,

Folks all called him tickle-toes.

You'll find him over there in France;

Alexander's band left old Dixie Land.

They used to play the lovin' blues for everyone,

But now they play the blues upon the gattlin' gun.

Don't forget old Shimmy Sam, finest boy from Alabam,

He went a-way in kha-ki pants!!!

Instead of pickin' melons off the vine,

He's pickin' Germans off the Rhine—

You'll find old Dixie Land in France.

Other favorites were:

"There's Lump of Sugar Down in Dixie."
"And Everything."
"Somebody's done me Wrong."


One of his best military songs was:

"Shootin Cross the Rhine"

Chorus: The first thing you do is when attention's called,

Stand up straight, one and all,

Forward march, column right—keep your interval--

Then you close up tight.

Company halt—'bout face—

Stand at ease with style and grace.

Squad's right and double time—

That's the dance that made the Kaiser

Get back 'cross the Rhine.

Lieut. Leonce R. Legendre of the Headquarters Company was in charge of the show and the band.
