Page two had a bit on the humor of incorrectly spelled names, followed by an Article written by E.G.P. on increasing the time Indians spend in both office and school. Also on the page is a piece on an essay competition about “The Indian Question,” one essay writing on the importance of language.

Page three had the School notes, including visitors, a magic show, and work on a new hospital. Page three also had a bit on the newest picture “Our Boys and Girls,” a collection of 35 vignettes of students. There was also an article on how the school girls spend their day to day lives.
