Ideals are those products which
emanate from a phenomenon known
as the Past. From within those re-
cesses which contrive thoughts that
are later developed into memories
are found ideas which have been
remolded into traditions and founda-
tions. For Ball State students, the
Past could mean a something as sim-
ple as the days when everyone wore
bobby socks or danced in the Tally.
However, the majority of students
never fully realize the emphatic im-
portance of the Past. Ever since those
founding days, the school has main-
tained certain philosophies intro-
duced during those years. It was
in the early twenties that the campus
atmosphere was considerably bright-
ened by the innovation known as
"Hello Week." Even though this
specific event is now just another
part of the Past, today's students
still speak with pride of the "friend-
liest campus in Indianaf' a possible
outgrowth of "Hello Week." It was
also during this dark Past when the
original conception of the purpose of
Ball State was in part defined by the
explanation of a student's education
being the "sum total of all his college
experiences." Freshmen still hear this
same philosophy as they ready them-
selves for school. Two examples ac-
count for a mere portion of the role
that the Past takes on the present and
the future. The olden days, as one
might term them, are then those
basic predecessors which account for
events in the present and the antici-
pated plans for the near future.

Presidents F. A. Z. Kumler, 1899-1902 and
Michael D. Kelly, 1911-1917

A man once referred to the future as
"only the past again, entered through
another gatef, Todayis and what will
soon be tomorrowls campus in many
ways reflects parts of its own beginning.
Since the idea of a university in Mun-
cie was introduced on paper in 1891,
the school has undergone many changes
to fulfill its educational purposes.
In the late 1890's an association was
formed for the exclusive reason of de-
George A. Ball, Dr. Lucius L. Ball, Frank C. Ball, Edmund C. Ball, and William C. Ball, Muncie
veloping the school. They purchased land
and divided it into lots which they sold
to local residents.
From the money, they paid for the
upkeep of the land and the eventual
construction of buildings.
In 1898, an article was revised to
allow the transfer of university property
to a religious denomination.
The first president, F. A. Z. Kumler,
signed a detailed contract stipulating
Lobby of Administration Building, 1914
that he would have the land and the
yet unconstructed building rent-free for
ten years, and if, at the end of three
years, the enrollment reached 300 and a
850,000 endowment was supplied by the
church, the school would be turned over
to their control.
The lot sale was reached and the con-
struction of the Administration Building
began, it was dedicated on August 28,
1899. For that year it had classroom
space, oflice space, an apartment for the
president, a chapel and two libraries.
In 1901 the school was closed, im-
mediately attempts were made to have
the state assume control of the school,
however, they were all unsuccessful.
Then in 1902, a professor from Ohio
persuaded Francis Palmer, a retired New
York banker, to make a contribution of
S100,000 to be matched by the Chris-
tian Church of North America.
The money was donated and Palmer
University opened in September, 1902,
with 100 students and twelve faculty
Dr. Latchaw, the man from Ohio,
served as president for a year before
resigning, Palmer died the same year.
The money to meet his gift was raisedg
however, heirs contested his will and
won and the second university died.
Francis Ingler and james McCormick
of Indianapolis became interested in the
school after another unsuccessful attempt
to affiliate the school with the state was
made. They began the Indiana Normal
School and College of Applied Science
in the fall of 1905.
