Men of Integrity Needed

God give us men.  The time demands

Strong minds, great hearts,

True faith and willing hands;

Men whom the lust of office does not kill

Men whom the spoils of office cannot buy;

Men who possess opinions and a will;

Men who have honor; men who will not lie;

Men who can stand before a demagogue

And damn his treacherous flatteries without winking;

Tall men, sun-crowned men, who live above the fog

In public duty and in private thinking.
