US poet, journalist. He was noted for homespun verse collections; Hosted Detroit radio show, 1931-42; wrote "Just Folks," 1917 and "Heap O' Livin!," 1916.
There is an education of the mind
Which all require and parents only start.
But there is training of a nobler kind
And that's the education of the heart.
Lessons that are most difficult to give
Are Faith and Courage and the way to live.

But here in the struggle for fame and pelf
I want to be able to like myself.
I don't want to look at myself and know
That I'm bluster and buff and empty show.
Somebody scoffed, "Oh, you'll never to that --
At least no one ever has done it";
But he took off his coat and he took off his hat,
And the first thing we knew, he'd begun it.
With a lift of his chin, and a bit of a grin
Without any doubting or "quit it,"
He started to sing, as he tackled the thing
That couldn't be done, and he did it.
The best of all the preachers are the men who live their creeds,
For to see good put in action is what everybody needs.
