Morris Cohegfe ocTOpies a unique ancTsignificant position in the American social order. It is one of the few senior colleges built and operated by Blacks, and. as... such, represents a distinct contribution of the Black man to American education. It is both a product of and a contributing factor in our great democracy through its actions as a catalyst of social change and a potent force in the struggle for equal opportunity for all Americans.
The College was founded by the Baptist Education and Missionary Convention of South Carolina in 1908 for the intellectual training of Black people -FtrTtrrra'fTy“ history, Morris College pro
vided three levels of training: elementary school, high school and college.
During the continuing development of the College, major changes have been made: the the discontinuance of the elementary and high schools,

Although the primary emphasis is placed on helping Black people, the College has been of service to all members of the community. For hundreds of youth and adults, Morris College has afforded the op-

Morris College has more than justified the faith, the labors, and sacrificies of the Founding Fathers. The services it has rendered havefbecn extensive and beyond value. The College has and will continue to operate ' as a venture of faith, and manifestation of dedicated service, the beneficiary of sacrifica 1 giving, and a bea -con of hope and inspiration.
It is not always the brilliant administrator or the whip-cracking teacher who makes a school outstanding. Nor does all the credit belong to the alumna or alumnus who sends back the most money. There is oftentimes a supportive foundation which we students see everyday. The persons to whom we dedicate this edition of the Hornet constitute the core which supports our College experiences.
The 1972-73 Hornet is dedicated to the "little people" who are giants among us students and the foundation of our existence. We, the students of Morris College, dedicate this yearbook to Mrs. Gladys Flood and Mr. Horace Jackson for their years of loyalty and service to our school.
The cafeteria is her domain. Queen everyday she rules unrestrained.
She makes meals special by
sprinkling in a pinch of love Breakfast, lunch, or dinner she serves us with a smile.
HOW COULD SHE?
But that's the special twist for which we keep going Back still

"Though clay sometimes may see no end, the end is at hand.
Though night no longer brings forth stars, darkness will not prevail.
For though there is no end of day or light of stars by night they pass by still.
I am but a day that ends and a star that lights the night I pass by, yet in someway though small maybe have left a lasting impression that will last throughout eternity.
For when tomorrow comes and yesterday has gone that you remember me."

Morris College Hornets Take Conference Tournament Crown
The Morris College Hornets captured its second Southeastern Athletic Conference Tournament Championship in a period of three years. This year, as in 1971, the Hornets went into the Tournament in fourth place and could not be stopped.

Wc Morrisites have our age of opportunity: A time to make of ourselves just what we choose to be. Unrestricted by family traditions, and cultural restrictions, we can climb to the top of the ladder and lx masters of all we survey. Yes, this is a great time in which to lx alive; for before our very eyes, are unveiled the supposedly impossibilities of human accomplishments--men splitting the molecules of air at astronomical speeds, such as were not imaginable in our forefathers' time; the conquering of diseases that at one time were considered terminal. We now can sit in our living rooms and watch the drama of a nation unfold in the White House. Yes, this is a time in which to be alive.

Whitey always wins'Tranquility drapes the campus
126We are the merry dishwashers, doing our tiling'From the Editor
Now that you've had the opportunity to page through this edition of the Hornet I'm sure there are some criticisms! It was my aim to have all classes represented on my staff. However, only that "select group, " as most of you call them, responded to my call. After personally asking several members of the sophomore and freshman classes, I ended up with one sophomore and the rest juniors and seniors. So, before you criticize, keep that in mind. Plus the fact that it was you (students, faculty and staff) who gave us little cooperation and did not take your pictures at designated times. And it was this administration who waited well into the first semester to sign the contracts necessary for this edition. Of course, some of the blame rightly belongs to us, (we didn't push hard enough.)
My thanks to members of the 1973 Hornet Staff. It was these people on the following pages who worked long hours, missed classes, and a lot of partying time to make this edition what it is.
A special thanks to my Assistant Editors, Constance Taylor and Christopher Curry who worked with me since the summer of '72, and gave me the motivation and faith to continue to work when the way seemed dark; To Willard Lyle and Donald Little who suffered many moments of embarrassment while trying to sell advertisements; To Rev. T. M. Jones who was always there with his advice and to lend an untiring hand; To Mrs. E. E.
Black and Mr. C. Caballero for their support; To our photographer Mr. Nelson Douglas and American Yearbook representative Mr. Fred Bostrom, for without their help I don't know what I would have done.
