The Morris College Seal
The Morris College Seal performs a two-fold purpose: to authenticate the written communication of business with which the College is involved, and provide an artistic source of communication as a symbol that projects the purpose and objectives of the College.
The present seal is a new seal that was necessitated by the developmental change and progress in the purpose and objectives of the College that were predicated by new trends in education and a changing social order. Consequently, in 1969, President 0. R. Reuben commissioned Mr. Theolander M. Taylor, Art instructor, at the College to design the new seal.
The seal is a discus consisting of two circles and a triangle with a raised torch depicted in the center. The outer circle, a dynamic element of the design, suggests movement that is symbolic of progress to which the College is dedicated. The torch represents knowledge that is provided by the College though the administration and faculty. In the triangle God's placement at the apex symbolizes his eminence and the emphasis the College places on Christian education. "Knowledge" appears in the right angle and re-emphasizes the major objectives of the College. The figure of man in the left angle represents mankind and relates to the coeducational constituency of the College's student body.2DEDICATION . . .
Mrs. Magnolia A. Lewis, Chairman of the Division of Education and Director of Teacher Education at Morris College 1954-73.
Mrs. Magnolia Atkinson Lewis was born in Horatio, South Carolina, the daughter of Mr. Fred and Lottie Wright Atkinson. Her formal education was begun at Browning Home (now Bolin-Haven-Mather Academy) Camden, South Carolina.
When Mrs. Lewis reached the fifth grade, her mother transferred her to Morris College where she remained until she completed two years of college work.
Her teaching career began inWampee, South Carolina in 1932 - (Horry County), where she met and later married Mr. Edward W. Lewis. After a few years, Mrs. Lewis returned to Morris College during summer and evening classes and completed the work for the Bachelor of Arts degree. During this time she distinguished herself as an outstanding and creative first grade teacher in the Lois area. She was offered the position of Jeans Supervisor of Horry County, but she preferred to stay in the classroom.
In 1948 she moved hack to Sumter County (Horatio) and was employed at the Rembert Memorial Elementary School where she taught for three years. In the meantime she was attending Hampton Institute in Hampton, Virginia from which she earned the Master of Science Degree in Education.
In 1952 she joined the faculty of the Moore Elementary School, Sumter, South Carolina where she taught for two years.
In 1954 when President 0 . R . Reuben invited her to join the Morris College faculty, her greatest educational ambition, to become Director of Teacher Education at her beloved Alma Mater, became a reality.
Mrs. Lewis continued her studies on the graduate level at Indiana University for a number of summers.
She was awarded a grant from the Ford Foundation and she resumed her studies at American University, Washington, D. C. There she completed her course requirements for the degree of Doctor of Education and began writing her dissertation.
Through the years as Mrs. Lewis was contributing and achieving educationally, she was working with equal dedication in her church on local and state levels. While in Horry County, she served faithfully in the Antioch Baptist Church as Sunday School teacher and missionary. She was elected president of the I Kingston Lake Women's Auxilliary in 1949, a position she continued to hold even after leaving the county. In her home church. Rafting Creek Baptist church, she has held many positions of leadership. She is a charter member and was first president of the State Baptist Young Women's Auxiliary, and is presently the state supervisor of that body.
Under her leadership the organization contributed generously to the improvement of Morris College. Her original project for the organization was a Laboratory School for the training of teachers at Morris College. Instead the H. H. Butler Building was renovated for use as a building for the Division of Education, especially for the teacher education program.
Mrs. Lewis was a pioneer with Headstart in Sumter. She was in the initial meeting held at Mt. Pisgah and later with the late President Reuben's cooperation she became the director of the first Headstart program in Sumter.
Mrs. Lewis is married to Mr. Edward W. Lewis. They have three beautiful children, Atkinson Edward Lewis, a student at St. Jude High School and twin girls, Magnolia Edwin and Mazieola Edweena Lewis.
Morris College is greatly indebted to Mrs. Lewis for her deep commitment to teacher education, her sensitivity and responsiveness to student needs, her cooperative spirit, and her zeal to improve the educational program at Morris College.
We take this opportunity to say to her "thank you" for all that you have done for Morris College. Your contributions are an inspiration and a challenge to us.SPECIAL APPRECIATION

A paramount concern of Morris College, since its founding in 1908, has been to provide educational opportunities for young men and women who could benefit from its offerings. Although the year 1973-74 may come to be looked upon as the year in which women stood at the forefront of the College, this traditional emphasis was not abandoned. Underscoring it has been concerted efforts to "set new directions." Improving educational accountability on all operational levels, identifying goals and removing roadblocks to the realization of these goals were among the major routes which the new directions took.
I wish to congratulate the staff and advisors of the 1974 "Hornet" Yearbook. It reflects much of the significant growth, constructive industry and the genuine "spirit of togetherness" which characterized our experiences. Yet our joy in what has been accomplished must be tempered by our awareness of what remains to be accomplished.
To the graduating seniors, I extend special commendations. As you go forth, it is with the hope that the torch of your enthusiasm to assure and insure the future progress of your Alma Mater will light the torches of all who come within its range.
Jessie W. Taylor, Chairman Interim Committee President's Office
7GREETINGS FROM THE PRESIDENT-ELECT LUNS C. RICHARDSON
I wish to thank the class of 1974 for providing this opportunity for me to extend warm and sincere greetings to all who will be graduating this year. I am happy as I look forward to joining the ranks of those who participate in the great and unique venture that is Morris College. As one of the classes which has been privileged to receive what the college has to offer, you are now obligated to help repair and perpetuate the institution and see that it is kept alive in the future.
You have our best wishes for success in your chosen careers. As you enjoy the fruits of your labors, remember your alma mater and help increase its capacity to serve those who follow in your footsteps.

Many times it is difficult to put one's thoughts into words especially when one has strong emotional ties. When this occurs, one may prefer to draw a picture, compose a piece of music, or write a poem to express his emotions and feelings.
When an institution takes on as its theme "New Directions" this means little, unless it is practiced. And at Morris when this theme was set it was meant, was believed, and has become a part of the total environment of Morris.
The total environment of Morris College is one which is condusive to exploring new ideas and new directions to make Morris the best institution.
The leaders of a college are the seniors and the senior class has helped lead Morris College into new directions in many areas. The tradition and spirit of Morris is among the strongest asset of the institution. However, an institution cannot stand alone on its past, it must look to the future and meet the changing world.
What has happened at Morris during this school year and I am certain will continue to happen is something that only a picture, music script, or poem could begin to express.
So to my staff, I would like to thank you for your part. Without you there would be no yearbook.

19MORRIS AT A GLANCE
While MORRIS COLLEGE is just one of 1200 or more other senior colleges and universities in America, it has made the difference for thousands of young people of South Carolina and across the Nation in terms of achieving or not achieving a college education. Those who have been served now teach our children; they provide leadership in government; contribute heavily to the growth and development of our community and provide a wide array of services that promote the general welfare of mankind.
In addition, the College has been of significant service to the community of which it is a part. Numerous programs for the community's uplift have been planned and initiated at the College by its staff and members of the community. It lias been a meeting place, an economic force and a cultural center for the people of lower South Carolina.
The pride that surely must prevail in the hearts of all Baptists and other supporters is wrapped up in the fact that their predecessors had the foresight to found the Institution, and generations that followed have played a major role in perpetuating its existence. Tins is true in spite of the fact that more than 300 private colleges in existence sixty-five years ago are no longer in operation.
In considering all of the benefits and opportunities of Morris College, it is amazing that the Institution exists not as a result of some law; it is not supported by citizens through taxes who have no choice in the matter, but it is present and serves out the will of the people and their commitment to the uplift of humanity. No doubt, in its sixty-five year history, there have been times when the College's plea for help has been in a distressing tone signifying urgency. The past will show that South Carolina Baptists and friends of the College have answered with an enthusiasm fitting to each challenge faced. We must not and will not allow such a glorious legacy as the Morris College tradition pass from among us.
20MRS. JULIA WELLS INSTITUTIONAL PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENTSetting New Directions in Planning and Development
The Planning and Development function at Morris College involves more than merely raising money for the College. It involves the short, medium and long range plans whereby the College makes efforts 1) to analyze its needs in terms of its Program Objectives, 2) to communicate these plans to its various publics, and 3) to seek the resources necessary to carry out these objectives. The Public Relations, Alumni Affairs and Church Relations Offices are utilized in our efforts to develop support for the Institution. The Office also engages in proposal writing and proposal stimulation.
As we set new directions in Institutional Planning and Development, the role of the director of planning is threefold, encompassing the arears of 1) planning, 2) development and 3) federal relations.
Planning: The role of the Director of Institutional Planning and Development is that of an internal change agent. He is responsible for keeping the Institution abreast of changing demands in American Higher Education, identifying promising alternatives to current practices, and monitoring progress for collecting and reporting information. He maintains an effective internal communications network. He participates in the design of systems for evaluation, assists decision makers in the interpretation of reports, and encourages the use of research in the decision-making process.
Development: The Director of Institutional Planning and Development supervises and coordinates all fund-raising and public relations activities.
Federal Relations: The Director of Institutional Planning and Development stimulates proposal development and coordinates proposal preparation, operates an information center on f kieral programs and maintains a liaison with federal agencies.

4THE SUMTER DAILY ITEM Dec. 7, 1972 MORRIS TRUSTEES HELD 'CAPTIVE'
Board Backs President Hardin
Morris College students, who Wednesday held approximately 10 Board of Trustee members prisoner for nearly an hour, were to resume peaceful protests against President Henry E. Hardin this morning.
The student decision to continue their boycott of classes and set up a picket line in front of Hardin's office came at a student meeting held nearly six hours after the Board of Trustees' decision to keep Hardin at least until the end of the year.
Hardin has been unavailable for comment.
The predominantly black campus has been the scene of student unrest since the inauguration of the then acting President Hardin about amonth and a half ago.
STUDENTS initially demanded an administrative response to a list of 15 grievances, dealing mostly with extended student privileges and improved campus facilities. A boycott of classes began Nov. 20, and as the protest evolved, the grievances took second place to the demand Hardin resign.
When the Board of Trustees' decision was announced at about 4:15 p.m. Wednesday in the auditorium of the Wilson Booker science building, the tension that had been building up among students throughout the afternoon erupted.
Students in the auditorium chanting "no, no, no," made a human barricade in front of the room's two doors, vowing not to let the trustees out until a different decision was announced.
The Trustees, who claimed they were only 10 out of nearly 50 who made the decision and could not by themselves alter it, were kept thus imprisoned for nearly an hour.
TEMPERS APPEARED to arise proportionately with the temperature as the Trustees and approximately 200 students sweated out the hour. During this time students shouted questions to the trustees, but the answers were usually lost in the noise of the crowd.
At approximately 5:15 p.m., the door was opened to let several students out. A trustee, seizing the opportunity, rammed through the students in front of the door, tumbling onto the floor outside.
Other trustees then made their way out.
At a student meeting held later Wednesday night, student body president, Carol Cooper, told students it was up to them to make Hardin resign, but urged that all protests be nonviolent.
"They've denied our request," Cooper said, "so it's up to the students now." This institution cannot last without the students.
"You've got to make him resign," Cooper said, "... but I don't want to advocate violence. Destruction of property is no good because we don't have enough as it is."
The imprisonment of the trustees climaxed a long afternoon of waiting and basically peaceful demonstrations that began at about 1 p.m.
Approximately 175 students crowded around the doors of the Wilson Booker building auditorium early Wednesday afternoon. Inside the trustees were considering a Nov. 28 recommendation from the Board of Directors that President Hardin be asked to submit his resignation.
WAITING STUDENTS would occasionally break into song or begin chanting "We want Hardin's resignation." Otherwise, the period of waiting was interrupted only be the unheeded ringing of class bells. Trustees took a break at about 2:45, telling students they would return in about 10-20 minutes and assuring them they would have the opportunity to be heard.
Nearly an hour passed and the students, who heard the vote had already been taken, became restless. Approximately 125 young people marched over to the cafeteria where the trustees were assembled. Once inside, the students began banging on the tables and chanting, demanding the immediate resignation of President Hardin.
The group was told an announcement of the decision would be made at 4:15 p.m. and the students filed out, overturning several tables as they left.
Rumors began circulating that this was "just a taste of things to come."
THE ANNOUNCEMENT that was made and led to the imprisonement of the trustees reads, in part, "The Board of Trustees, after a considered discussion, overwhelmingly rejected the recommendation of the Board of Directors that Dr. H. E. Hardin be asked for his resignation as President of Morris College." "The Board felt it would be to the disadvantage of the college for a dismissal during the current school year. It has agreed at the end of the current year, a reassessment will be made by the Board of Trustees to determine the further course of the college.". . FACULTY MEMBERS
