Frank Davis was president of the Marshall Rotary club in 1922, and no doubt instrumental in having a pictorial disclosure of the members of the young club published in the newspaper, February 23, 1922, on pages 33, 34, 35, and 36, but the responses of the members suggest that it was not a popular idea, yet, everyone seemed to treat it with a good deal of levity and some respect. 
Six years before the Rotary Club of Marshall was organized, congress had created one of the most contentious pieces of legislation in the history of the United States, the income tax.  In 1913, the Sixteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution made the income tax a permanent fixture in the U.S. tax system.
The Marshall Rotary club wanted the first president of the club, Ike Hochwald, to be the first district governor from the club, in 1921, but Ike felt that he was not able or experienced enough to accept the position and withdrew, and threw his support to another candidate from San Antonio.
Some TV evangelists thrived and prospered for decades by urging their flocks to “give till it hurts”, others suggest “give, and it will be given to you”.  Now, the internet is rife with charities, appealing to our sensibilities and our checkbooks.
One of the most time-demanding jobs in a Rotary club is that of club secretary, which, for the most part, occurs behind the scenes, and alone, carefully inscribing the events of a meeting or project in the record books. 
Homer Price was a newspaper man first and foremost.  He began his newspaper career as an apprentice printer in Marysville, Tennessee. He moved to Marshal and bought the Marshall Messenger in 1877 for $500 and sold it a few months later to W. A. Adair, after a brief and very stressful period of newspaper ownership.
