Title: The Morris model
Abstract: Douglass Morris was a student of Keisler, and in 1970 he announced the

A_\alpha which is the countable union of countable sets, and the power set of
A_\alpha can be partitioned into \aleph_\alpha non-empty sets.
The result was never published, and survived only in the form of a short
announcement and an exercise in Jech's "The Axiom of Choice". We go over the
proof of this theorem using modern tools, as well as some of its odd
