".THE LIBRARY I92I1 ACADEMIC HALL 1924 • LEGARE HALL 1925 I9l2-I930i "WE WE DONE OUR BEST.". ' ' In Honor of Dr. William W. Carter Dr. Carter was born January 27. 1876 in Hattieville. Barnwell County. South Carolina, the son of Rev. George Washington Carter and Mrs. Frances Dunbar Carter. He attended the rural elementary schools of Barnwell and Allendale Counties. The county provided a school term of only three months. However, the Carters and other families of the county engaged and paid the teacher for an additional four months each year, for they were deeply appreciative of the value of education for their children. Dr. Carter was converted as a youth of about eight years of age. and only a few years later experienced the call to the ministry. In order to prepare for this calling, he entered Benedict College. While a struggling student at Benedict, he was given financial assistance which enabled him to complete his studies. In gratitude for the help he received, he made a vow to do whatever possible to support Christian education and to assist other struggling ministerial students. He has kept this vow. Benedict College, Florida Normal College, and Morris College have been the principal beneficiaries of his generosity. Dr. Carter has achieved a distinguished record as a pastor and his life is of great inspiration to young ministers. He has held successful pastorates in South Carolina, Florida, Louisiana, Massachusetts, and New York. His last pastorate was at Trinity Baptist Church, Bronx, New York, where he served for twenty-nine years. Because of his long years of service as a Christian minister and because of his dedication to the promotion of Christian education, the Hornet Staff is happy to tender him this dedication. 4dr. WILLIAM WADE CAR I HRALL THE WORLD IS A STAGE, AND ALL THE MEN AND WOMEN MERELY PLAYERS. THEY HAVE THEIR EXITS AND THEIR ENTRANCES; AND ONE MAN IN HIS TIME PLAYS MANY PARTS. HIS ACTS BEING SEVEN AGES. All's well that ends well, Shakespeare Another chapter of the ever changing Morris College story is nearing its end. Through four-acts and countless scenes, the actors and actresses have appeared on the stage, taken their places, and emitted the lines written for them by the great playwright. Act I: The Freshmen Timid and afraid we made our first appearance. Being amateurs and unaccustomed to college life, we stumbled through our freshman year. We were coached from the wings by teachers and upperclassmen alike. Act II: The Sophomores Pseudo wise and full of confident, we sailed into our sophomore year, only to find that there was still much work to be done before the play would end. Act III: The Juniors Juniors now, and the pseudo wiseness changed into a genuine desire for knowledge and understanding of the parts we are to play in life. We are eager to accept life’s challenges and its responsibilities. Act IV : The Seniors Now as seniors, we are suddenly made aware of the facts that this was not the play, just a rehearsal. We have practiced diligently and we are ready for our debut. But before the play begins, let us scan the scenes that have been recorded here. Let us be critics, and perhaps we can predict the future of the play and its heroes and heroines.DR. O. R. REUBEN President PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE We extend our gratitude and congratulations to the students of the 1961 graduating class whose dedicated service has made possible our 1960-61 annual.
