The first page began with the heading, “February 22,” followed by poems and articles about George Washington and his birthday. Also on the page was a piece called “Do Indian Boys Have It?” about the pitfalls of self-conceit. Page two included many small articles that included an update of area postal routes, a description of Eugene Tahkapeur’s (Comanche) outing life in New England, and a list of blank forms printed by the Carlisle Indian School printing department for use in various departments.

Page three reported news items about the new electric lights in the gym, the return of Mrs. Nannie Davis (Pawnee) to campus with her new baby Richenda from her Outing home, an account of proper drill etiquette, the shoe-shop’s record of excellence, and other short notices. The fourth page featured an article, “Our Time,” about the wise use of time, and “Salutations,” which translated greetings in several languages. The issue concluded with two “Enigma” puzzles.
